Paint Bucket

paint buckets

The “Paint Bucket” is my “bucket list” of recipes that I want to try.  I work on a draft of this list all through the month, adding recipes and ideas as I come across them.  At the beginning of each month I post the final version of the recipes I want to try, and include photos and links of the things I made from the previous month’s list

Often a recipe that is on the list turns into a different version or dish completely, barely resembling the original recipe.  That’s great!  That is what this is all about.  The “Paint Bucket” is NOT A TO DO LIST, it is an idea provoker, a start point, a way to save time by narrowing the choices…creativity is all about inspiration, taking off and flying…

Here is a list of all the monthly Paint Buckets~a great way to peruse a grouping of monthly seasonal recipes for your own menus
