Is your tween or teenager obsessed with 13 Reasons Why, the Netflix series that some argue romanticizes suicide? Here are some good talking points from the Jed Foundation if so. (More guidance from the National Association of School Psychologists)
Another reason to love John Green: His laptop art.
Just pre-ordered The Dinner Party.
On my dinner line-up next week. How freaking good does that look?
From the Archives: Burrito Bowls!
Read of the Week: Who knew barbecue sauce could be so political?
Deal of the Week: Kindle version of Dinner: A Love Story is $1.99 right now!
Unclear where my kitchen would go, but how cool is the concept of the Tiny Hut?
Meet the Woman Who Took Down Bill O’Reilly. Badass!
I’ll bet you can guess what Anthony Bourdain thinks of the Unicorn Frappuccino.
How do we feel about restaurants banning children under 5?
How to Make Ice. Hahahahaha.
A little bit obsessing over the whole vibe of the kitchen included in this round-up.
The family menu options at Martha & Marley Spoon (the meal-kit delivery service) have doubled — they’re now offering ten of their best-selling family recipes on the menu line-up each week. (We made this crazy-easy Shrimp and Tomato Bread Salad on Wednesday to rave reviews from all four diners; even if you don’t do the delivery service, I encourage you to make the recipe.) MMS was nice enough to give DALS readers a discount code — please type in DINNERLOVE30 at checkout for $30 off your first box. (Offer expires May 7.)
Finally, the cartoon panels you’re looking at above (“How Was School?”) were sketched by my Phoebe, who for every family member’s birthday features the celebrant (in this case, me!) in a comic strip or illustration. They are always so sweet and thoughtful, but this one really made my heart swell. A good reminder that just showing up is sometimes enough.
Have a great weekend.
