What I’m eating and reading this week:
My talented designer friend Bonnie Siegler put together the coolest book just in time for President’s Day: Signs of Resistance: A Visual History of Protest in America. I helped a little with the editing and while I was working on it, I noticed that my kids couldn’t help but pick up the pages lying around the house to pore through the powerful (sometimes hilarious) broadsides, posters, letters, march signs, memes, and magazine covers chronicling dissent from Revolutionary America through Trump’s America. It is inspiring and also just so cool. Check it out.

Or you can just make Molly’s insane Team USA cake. Please watch the video, it’s priceless.
Disturbing or Encouraging: Yale’s Most Popular Course Ever.
Speaking of which, I love everything about the digital gratitude app Happy Feed.
Just bought 10% Happier. (Picking up a theme here? Are you worried about me yet?)
Last week, for the Super Bowl, we ordered a ton of smoked meats and comfort food-y sides from Revenge BBQ (a local place we are obsessed with) and to counter all that richness, we started with an array of these roasted vegetable dips. They were a huge hit and — bonus — I got to spread leftovers on good multigrain toast for lunch the next day.
We also served this icebox cake, which officially canceled out any nutritional benefits of the roasted vegetable dips.

I visited my college friend in Chicago a few weeks ago and had the best dinner at Quiote. (Please order the avocado salad.)
