I'm not throwing any shade at Pinterest.
I like Pinterest!
I'm just not any good at it.
The blogosphere is full of bloggers waxing poetic about how they've made Pinterest their b!tch by creating lovely -- and, quite frankly, enviable -- crafts and recipes, particularly during the holidays.
Well, I am definitely not one of those bloggers, and this is not one of those posts.
Instead this mama, who possesses the aptitude of a preschooler when it comes to anything crafty, prefers to glean her recipes from a less intimidating venue.
Read: I obtained the following recipes from a circular that was delivered to our home by our local grocery store.
I scoured the Interwebs for high quality jpeg images of these recipes, but, no dice.
So I actually took photos of the circular. Classy, I know. (Only the best for my readers!)
The bottom line is this: These recipes are cute, edible, and take mere seconds to make.
And there is no way you can eff them up.
Trust me, I've tried.
Here's what's on the menu:
HEALTHY CANDY CANES
I've made these for both Scotty and Kennedy and they are crazy about them!
Another hit, here. Scotty flips for these. (There's too much going on for Kennedy's liking; but she'll throw down on the blueberries and whipped cream, though.)
REINDEER GAMES LUNCH
Spread cream cheese between two slices of whole wheat bread, then trim the sandwich into a triangle shape. Add two green peas for eyes and a halved cherry tomato for a nose. To create antlers, cut a hot dog in half lengthwise then make a small vertical cut at the end of each half before cooking. Place the heated hot dogs at the top of the corners of the triangle, split sides up.
Now, Scotty won't touch this with a ten-foot pole because he's not a fan of hot dogs. I kind of knew that already when I decided to live dangerously and serve this to him. He didn't bite -- even though the (vegan) hot dogs were camouflaged as antlers. But, no matter. I loved this sandwich! So it didn't go to waste.
