Thing 12

I’m so Google-dependent it hurts. When I first started working on Thing 12, Rollyo custom search engines, I thought to myself “why in the world would I need a ‘custom search engine’ when Google works just fine.” But, thanks to the 23 Things program my eyes are now open.

After racking my brain for an hour trying to figure out what in the world to make a Rollyo searchroll for I decided to take a break and work on my family’s meal menu for next week (yes, I make a menu and draw up a shopping list, not to mention I do most of the shopping, and I’m just nerdy enough to do it all in an Excel spreadsheet). I try to keep the menu fresh by adding new recipes every once in a while and since my wife and I are controlling our carbs I started to go for my usual low-carb recipe sites when BANG! It hit me. I could use my favorite low-carb sites for a Rollyo searchroll.

Of course, being lazy I immediately searched Rollyo to see if anyone had already made one (why reinvent the wheel when I could just steal one) but, unfortunately, nobody had. So, I created my own and made it “public” so everyone can see it. I named it Low Carb Recipes (creative no?) so if you’re interested you can check it out.

Now, back to my menu.
