Five Things


I’m still tan and happy from the long weekend, and we’re already up against another weekend. I just discovered my new favorite beer, but apparently it’s seasonal and now I can’t find it. What about us in Florida? Don’t they know it’s pretty much always summer here? I’ll have to console myself with a wine tasting.

Hope you have some fun plans and a good recipe or two for the next couple of days. And let me know if you have any new favorite beers to recommend. Here are this week’s Five Things:

(1) Do you remember reading The BFG when you were a kid? Maybe you’ll also like these Roald Dahl coffee mugs.

(2) I looove a good lentil soup. Can’t wait to try Molly Wizenberg’s version.

(3) This site – The Everygirl – is a fun one to browse through. They feature “real” women and posts on food, health, fitness, and fashion without trying too hard and shouting things at you.. “Lose weight in 10 days! Eat these 10 foods to slim down!” There are also sections on career and travel. Check it out.

(4) Lottie + Doof, one of my favorite food blogs, celebrates its blog birthday this week in part with a fun post from Bon Appétempt, another favorite. Bonus: Watch all the hilarious videos on Amelia’s food blog.

(5) This Food52 recipe for scalloped tomatoes. Doesn’t it look great?



I love hearing from you! Please leave me a note below.
