Carolina Curator Besotted Blog

I made it home late last night from my travels, feeling a bit worse for wear. I had broken one of my cardinal rules of air travel–never ever eat meat on a flight. My apologies to any of my vegetarian friends that I may have unintentionally scarred. I would have chosen a vegetarian option if there was one, but the only option was carbohydrate laden crackers and suspect cheese spreads and I was at my low blood sugar limit and needed to eat something a little more filling. I opted for a chicken Caeser wrap, which even on terra firma would be an iffy choice, but I don’t eat roast beef which was the only other offering in the ‘meal’ category.  I knew immediately after I had devoured it that it was a bad idea and that I would be ruing the day the stewardess put it in my greedy paws. I did and I do. Sigh.

Since last night was so restless and I felt as if I had accidentally poisoned myself, I knew that my curator pick today needed to be soothing to assist in getting me through the regret of what I had done. I chose Carolina for her rustic, Nordic style.  Carolina is in Barcelona and I wish I knew more about her, is she a Swedish native on holiday in Spain? Or is she a Spaniard with a taste for the Scandinavian? Either way it works. She’s a prolific pinner and has a wonderful food grouping on multiple boards, too many good things to choose from but her pins of coffee drinks, everything from espresso to affogato is really just sublime. Did I mention what incredible coffee I had on my travels?  From Los Angeles to Seattle I had some of the best coffee I ever had the pleasure of partaking in and as soon as I feel better from my plane repast I shall indulge once again.

  1. I recently came across your blog and I have had an enjoyable time browsing through back posts. I share your passion with calligraphy and your texts really inspire me. Oh I am so happy to follow “besotted” ! Have a good day…

  2. Oh yikes…hope you are feeling better. I am not a vegetarian but want to be. Desperately. Anyway…another fabulous curator, thank you! I just switched to the new Pinterest design and am enjoying it as well.

  3. It’s soo hard to eat well while travelling! Especially as a vegetarian / vegan. I had a similar breakdown this week. I was exhausted and feeling sick and frustrated (never eat when you’re angry) and all I wanted was a burger, of all things! I am a recent vegetarian but having not had meat for a few months I couldn’t believe how awful it made me feel!! I barely slept all night because my tummy ached and when I did sleep I had terrifying dreams.. come to think of it, my nightmares have almost completely gone away since I started eating vegan.. bonus!

  4. Ooh, that teeny tiny puppy face – so sweet. And a whole board devoted to tea? Yes please. I’ve switched to the new Pinterest and really like it. I hope you are feeling better soon. It’s so hard on the system to eat meat when you aren’t doing so regularly. I got so sick once during high school when I went from eating a vegetarian diet to eating a steak on a special occasion.
