Skipping the Super Bowl? Spice Up Your Sunday Instead

Pin it button

Football so not your thing? (Totally with you.) If you won't be filling your evening today with Super Bowl snacks and football viewing, how about creating your own mash-up of powerful forces and spice up your Sunday, instead?

Last month I talked about how one of my goals for this year is to try new things more. Push my comfort zone. Get more adventurous in the home with cooking and design.

Where did January go? I haven't done much spicing up yet. (Although I did try out those pork chops and they were really good). But! I'm going to try two things starting tonight and throughout the week that will definitely start spicing things up around my place.

First things first, I'm obsessed with kimchi at restaurants. I've always wanted to make my own but have been so intimidated. But, this how-to and recipe for kimchi spotted on the Kitchn seems, dare I say, actually doable? I'm going to brave the Super Bowl supermarket lines to grab some ingredients later this evening. Perhaps by next Sunday I'll be munching on my own very simple spicy kimchi while I decide what new thing I'll try next?

As for what to spice up my home with, I've also been equally obsessed with the idea of adding a colored frame on a wall since seeing the powerful composition in Re-Thinking the Gallery Wall: 8 More Funky & Fun Ideas. Since then, I've found even more inspiring and persuasive images that prove to me a colored frame is a bold choice for showcasing art. Like in Stylish Ideas for Displaying Family Photos, Double Up Your Frames For Extra Color and in New Ideas for Old Frames. I'll be choosing an existing framed art piece in my home and considering a color to paint it. What if you did the same?

How will you be spicing up your Sunday today? (Totally okay if you're watching the Super Bowl too, though). If you do something — either try a new recipe or work on a daring DIY project — will you share it with us here in the comments or on Facebook and Twitter? We want to hear how you're spicing your life and home up!
