1. Pray. God has some awesome ideas.
2. Hit the library.
There are probably other ideas too but, that is what I do. :)
My very generous and understanding honey helps me out on Friday afternoons. He takes the afternoon off so he can take part in homeschooling "K" and give him his guitar lesson (which, I think rocks). While he is doing that I am free for a couple of hours. (Hallelujah!) Today, I stopped and got a vanilla rooibos tea and headed to the Library. Our city has a Main Library that is huge and has tons and tons of books. I stayed for an hour and a half and left with 5 books. I love the Library. I also love the internet for research and ideas as well but, there's just something about a book. I love just having something to hold in my hand, pore through the pages, look at pictures, etc...especially cookbooks. I think I am slightly addicted to cookbooks. Most of the books I end up bringing home are cookbooks. So, now I feel like I am armed for creativity with my stack of books. Would you like to know which books I checked out? Sure you would. Don't you love it when people read your mind? :)

Not to mention 5 others I got last week when I was there...those are children's activity books.
About the Vegetarian books. No, we are not vegetarian exclusively but, we do eat several meatless meals a week. I don't intend on reading all of these books cover to cover but, I do intend on finding some great recipes and ideas.
Do you ever have a creative block? If so, what do you do about it? I'd love to know!
