What I’m reading and eating this week:
Wanna save Democracy? Read a novel.
My kind of dinner: Crispy Rice with Shrimp, Bacon, and Corn.
Read of the week: The Education of Bill Oliver. This is amazing.
Is anyone else addicted to Weelicious’s Smoothie Project?
After my vacation in Italy, I think I need Jamie’s latest.
How sharing a Hawaiian pizza in Beijing became a treasured family tradition.
Like everyone else it seems, I went down a serious Serena Williams rabbit hole this week, which led me to this amazing video of her and Venus at ages 7 and 8.
On the dinner line-up this week: Big Fat Greek Tacos which my friend Robin said were a huge hit in her house.
And for dessert: Raspberry Ricotta Cake.
Surviving and thriving in middle school hell? Three new novels say it’s possible.
Archive Dive! A few ideas for Labor Day eats: Chicken or Turkey Yakotori; Grilled Shrimp Tacos with Avocado “Butter”; Summer Salad inspiration; Grilled Short Ribs with Scallions; Vietnamese Tofu Salad; Chocolate Chess Pie; Classic Blueberry Crisp.
Enjoy the long weekend everyone!
