I've read a couple of posts lately on the topic of what a craft blog should be. Should they be strictly crafts, showing all pretty stuff and nothing personal? Should they show the reality of dirty dishes and piles of laundry or are we happy to believe the fantasy? Well, I've got my own bone to pick with a few of you so called crafty bloggers. Quit posting all the beautiful, nutritious meals you prepare for your families. There is no place for such in the craft blog world and you're making lazy cooks like me look bad. Just check out this post. Pesto Seared Salmon? Fillet of Beef au Poivre? Lauren, you're killin' me here! How about hot dogs or sandwiches? Doesn't cereal for dinner sound fun? The only time I get a cookbook out is the rare occasion that I bake. I guess it's not that I don't like to cook as much as I am a poor pre-planner. I'm sure you can't run into the kitchen 10 minutes after everyone is whining they are hungry and whip up Fillet of Beef au Poivre, that is unless Stouffer's is involved. We eat way too many convenience foods and too few fresh vegetables and fruits. I'm sure we consume more cheese in a year than is allowed by law. My family knows about blogs and there is a chance one of them my somehow stumble across the likes of this or this. Is it too much to ask that you keep your fancy little dinners to yourselves? You're bringing me down.
**disclaimer** JOKING FOLKS I love being inspired by all types of domestic talent. Maybe one day all the pretty food pictures and mouthwatering posts will motivate me.....naaahhh.
Now that I have that out of my system I can do gratitude Friday.
- Failure (when there's a lesson to be learned)
Gratefull for all...
