Creative Saturday

Last week, I started a new challenge for myself...I call it Creative Saturday. I've discovered that I'm most happiest when I'm creating...whether it's something baking in the oven or something I've painted or remodeled or built or composed...I'm just plain ol' content. So, every Saturday, as a way to step away for the norm, I'm going to make an attempt to use my God given creativity.

Today, I had good intentions of doing a few projects but after polishing the floor (yes, on hands and knees with grout sealer), I made Revel bars (thanks Dandy for the recipe). They turned out great and I know my chocolate lover in the house will be smiling for days when he comes home to discover them.





If you'd like to join in the fun, let me know what you've created! I'd love to see it!

I can't remember if these are the ones with the peanut butter... If they are, I'll have to hold off making them until Z turns 3.

Not feeling too creative today, but I am thinking of making my yellow rice recipe, but will add raisins and green peas this time, instead of wild blueberries. And topping that with creamy basil chicken.

@buckeroomama - take a picture! I want to see the end result. That sounds definitely unique but yummy!

I love the idea of creative Saturday!

Football season has officially started (college) & Hubby is a fan, so I was thinking I'd start spending Sat. cooking some nice fall dinners. . .

Thanks for the inspiration!

I love to hear stories of people trying new things! It inspires me to "keep moving and doing" in this wonderful world that we're blessed to live in.

Yummy!!! My motto is if it is not chocolate it's just not worth the calories. Hubby and I roasted hot dogs after Church today then we acted like a couple messy youngens' and made smores'. They were worth the mess. Enjoy your dessert!!!

I have to be in the right frame of mind to begin to create or doing anything creative whether it's gardening, writing or even quilting. I am hoping to get to making some fall placemats and once I am done I will put them up for everyone to see.

I cook Mon - Fri, but on the weekend I don't go near the stove or oven. So I won't be joining in on Creative Saturday, but I will enjoy reading about your creations!
