I’m an idea person. I constantly have new ideas floating around in my head. Each new idea is always better than the last, and I fixate on it, until… well at least until the next idea comes around!  I think up new blog articles, new recipes, new business ideas, etc.

When I made this black bean dip, I thought, “This is the most amazing dip ever! More people should be enjoying this!” From there my idea maker kicked in, and I figured out a plan for hawking bean dips and hummuses at a farmers’ market. You’ve got your butcher, your baker, and I’m your hummus and dip maker!  In my mind these ideas always scale up into crazy successful ventures, so I could soon see myself selling my dips at local grocery stores, and then across the nation at major retailers.  I became the queen of bean!

My mind takes me on some crazy adventures, without ever having to leave the comfort of my house!  The only downside is I think my husband gets a little worn out of listening to all my wild dreaming.

Are you an ideas person?  Where does that take you?
