I Just Can't Part Two & Pinterest Poser Challenge Fails

I just can't part two...

Yesterday I revealed that even though my family loves animals, I just can't.

And now I am confessing a few of my Pinterest Poser Challenge* Fails and some other just can'ts.

*In an attempt at not being a Pinterest Poser,** every week I  detail a new Pinterest challenge whether it be a new recipe or a craft.   
**My definition of a Pinterest Poser is someone who is all pins and no substance.**

I just can't make perfectly drawn chevron pumpkins.  I tried though (based on a Pinterest post).  
I taped my pumpkin with Lucy's purple Duck Tape in a sort of chevron pattern and started painting my pumpkin orange.  That sounds so weird, but yeah, I painted my white pumpkin orange.

And it looks okay, maybe, right?  

But look closer....nothing Pinterest perfect about that chevron paint job.

I just can't love kale chips.

I am not a kale hater. I like kale.  But the trendy homemade kale chips, nope.  I tried (inspired by a Pinterest post).  After I tasted them, I didn't even make the kids try them.  It was like eating salted, thin paper with a bad after taste.  I just can't.

I don't love quinoa, okay I hate it.  

I've tried quite a few different recipes adding veggies and spices and flavor, but I just can't.  And I really want to like it because it's gluten free and we are a gluten free family and they are making entire cook books, web sites, blogs and more about the stuff.  But nope. I just can't eat/make/love quinoa.

  1. look how many pinterest projects you've done...that's a pretty awesome list!

    (i just can't with the kale chips either.)

  2. Oh man...I love quinoa! Even the kids eat it when I make it like mac and cheese (milk, butter, cheese stirred in). But I like it all different ways. I did try the kale chips and they were okay. But your description cracks me up.
