Poking Around on Pinterest - June Synchroblog

This months topic is to show something you've done, made or created based on something you found on Pinterest! Who doesn't love poking around there looking for DIY ideas for decorating, cooking seeing loads of travel spots you want to visit and just plain stumbling on something you never thought of before?

Since I'm a foodie, I know everyone would be disappointed if I didn't show and tell a recipe I found and probably changed if I know me!

Scallop BLTs - Great Seafood Appetizer

Now mine didn't quite look like this, I had to have little toothpicks with colored frilly tops in mine because whatever food stylist did this photo must have been using Elmer's glue for the herb mayonnaise (I made lemon aioli) because scallops and mayonnaise of any kind are a slippery combination! Tomatoes just don't come in scallop size unless you search really hard, and remember to put a weight on your bacon while cooking it otherwise it will curl up and also make your lovely appetizer look like the leaning tower of Pisa!  I did try hard to add my own photo from my cell phone, but it just didn't want to upload to Flickr, Picassa or anywhere else I could go and grab it to show off all my colorful toothpicks in my own scallop BLTs.  Maybe I should search Pinterest for cell phone upload tips! The other problem was, they were so darn good there wasn't a single one left on the plate for me to get a chance to go get my real camera to take a decent photo! I had what I assume were 6 vultures for dinner that night because they disappeared so fast I was dazed!
The Artists Synchroblog is a group of bloggers who post every other month on the same topic, sharing our experience or perspective. On alternate months we undertake a Pinterest Project where we each take inspiration from a Pinterest picture, create something (art, a meal, a DIY project, etc) and then post about it.  You can read more about the Artists Synchroblog here.
Please visit the other synchrobloggers this month and see how Pinterest inspired them:
