Full Disclosure, and Some Links to Inspire

(*day 17// write31days// previous posts here)

So, full disclosure: the only thing I did today that was remotely close to stepping out of my comfort zone was order a salad at one of our favorite Friday night restaurants.

I guess you could say this actually is stepping out of my comfort zone since salads just aren’t my thing and I’ve always felt a little self-conscious about it, being a woman and all and finding that I don’t fit into that salad-eating stereotype of women. It’s isolating sometimes.

(Oh I jest)

Sadly, this particular salad only helped to perpetuate my relationship with salad, since it had no lettuce at all and in place of lettuce it had Thai basil and cilantro–a perfect combination to spice up your mouth in not such a beautiful way. I basically just dug around the salad with my fork and ate french fries smothered with a fried egg.

What’s a girl gonna do?

But if you want to try a few things new, here are some ideas:

1// Bullet Proof Coffee…I’ve heard about this, and then saw it on the Tonight Show, so I looked it up and found what seems like a good recipe and explanation here.

2// Felt Ball Garland–I realize I’m a little late to the party on this one, but I love the look of these, and it seems like it would be fun to make. Upon doing research (and by that I mean checking pinterest), I found this tutorial which seems super easy and just involves ordering the felt balls and stringing them together.

3// Butternut Squash Risotto–I have a butternut squash on my counter and I think a risotto is calling my name. Pioneer Woman’s recipe looks promising….

And goodnight! See you again tomorrow!
