    Oh yes, late in the Pinterest over here as well….but super addicted. I just discovered your blog from Peas and Thank You. We might have been separated at birth….I think about food the way you do. 24/7 all the time obsessed. It awakens me at night etc…really enjoying all of your recipes! You inspired my dinner last night, made your awesome peanut/soy Sauce for some stir fry. YUM! And my 3 year old helped!

    Yes, yes you do. Doggies make everything better. BUT puppies do grow up- I have 2 Golden Retrievers that I adopted at 8 weeks that are now 70 lb. horses (great running buddies, though!!). 🙂

    You should get a doggie! My hubby and I have one and she is like my child. She’s always there for me and she can cheer me up so quickly. She makes me laugh, she makes me cry… truly my best friend! (other than my hubby of course!) I highly recommend getting a dog!

    You know what else is awesome about puppies or dogs in general? They clean up after cooks in the kitchen. Though I haven’t any idea whether you’re a messy cook, I certainly am. When I fling veggies or pastry ingredients on the floor, I just call out for my adorable golden lab (Livingstone). Done and done!

    I just created a new Pinterest category for that puppy picture! Sooooo cute. and I’ve mostly only used Pintrest as a tool so far. (so I don’t have to bookmark so much stuff!) BUT one of these days when I have some time to kill, I’m going to get lost in the wonderous maze of it. yay!

    If you do decide to bring a little doggie into your life, please please please go the adoption route. Nothing is more satisfying than knowing you saved a little creature’s life by choosing to adopt over buy from a breeder.

    I LOVE Pinterest hahaha My friend got me hooked on it a few months back and since then have had an addiction !!! LOL I mean, it is awesome to be able to store all of the recipes and things I want to try in one place not having to print them all out, but it also probably sucks because I see some that are so delightfully delicious looking but probably not so healthy but they immediately go into the to be made queue hahaha
