You Know How.....

...Pinterest sends you those little emails labeled "Your Inspiration for the Week"?  Well, I got one of those the other day.  You know what they sent to inspire me?  Carrot Cookies!!  A recipe for Carrot Cookies!

Now just to set the record straight, nothing about carrots inspires me.  You want to inspire me, send me some chocolate, or HomeGoods pillows, or a Pier 1 gift card, or some money...but sending me carrot anything is not an inspiration!


Pinterest, I hope you are listening! :-)

Just a little stress relief y'all!  I hope you are all looking forward to Day 2 of the Fall Home Tour!  I know I am!!

    1. I like those terms....and thank you for using them to describe me! I remember the "canned" laughter from the TV shows and I think I heard the phrase "cats pajamas" on an episode of Lucy when I was little! Thank you so very much....you better be in bed! :-) Love and hugs to you!!

    1. Rue, your too funny. You've never had my momma's strawberry rhubarb pie, the crust made with lard. Delish !!!! Other than that, what is it good for ?!?!?

      Delete
    2. I'll take the pie if you leave out the celery. Lard.... yum! :)

    1. LOL…maybe they will pay attention and send only what we like. I think they are probably trying to broaden my horizons…they’ve heard what a picky eater I am! :-)

  7. Once upon a time many years ago, you prepared a beautiful speaking engagement portfolio for me. One of the items was a recipe for a family heirloom Carrot Cake. It became even more famous as I had a speaking engagement one weekend and prepared them a cake for s special treat. Little did I know or dream that the cake would be completely devoured while I was gone. Reason? That is ALL they ate while I was at the retreat. I still have that beautifully prepared portfolio....included is the recipe for that Carrot Cake. Would you like a copy? ;) Vicki

  9. I've never heard of carrot cookies, that doesn't even sound right {off to check pinterest}...Just by coincidence, I have a carrot cake post coming....Sssshhh...It has chocolate icing! I used to get the Pinterest emails for a long time, I don't know what I did, but I don't get them anymore! Love Rue's comment, and I've never had Rhubarb, but that a gave me a laugh and a smile! ;) hugs, Christine
