We’re going to my husband’s company post-holiday party tomorrow night and watching football on Sunday. I think having a party after the holidays are over is a great idea!
What’s up for your weekend? I hope that you have a good one!
- Food for Soul is coming to the United States. What a great organization!
- Here’s how some sports fans cope when they don’t agree with their beloved team’s politics. #AGoodGame.
- I made this Split Pea Soup and I’m really looking forward to the leftovers.
For a vegetarian split pea soup, this recipe from the original Moosewood Cookbook is delicious.
- Serve this Coeur à la Crème with Roasted Strawberry Sauce at your next party and your guests will thank you.
- The heck with all of the negativity about stretch marks. It’s time to embrace them.
- Have you noticed that Le Creuset pots come with two different types of knobs and wondered what is the difference between them? The classic black phenolic knob is oven-safe up to 375°F; the stainless steel knob is safe at any oven temperature.
I need some of the stainless steel knobs.
- Cool new word for me—seen on someone’s Facebook profile:
Coddiwomple (v.) Origin: English Slang Word. Definition: To travel in a purposeful manner towards a vague destination.
I hope that I have the chance to coddiwomple to some beautiful beach destination. (Please do not suggest specific beach destinations in your comments.)
- I liked Joy the Baker’s post 10 Things I’ve Learned in 10 Years of Blogging. Here are a couple of my favorites:
- There is no straight line to a dream. Sometimes, in all honesty, you don’t even know what your dream is until you’re halfway down a road. Persistence. There’s a lot to be said for just keeping on with a thing: persistence.
- Don’t believe the hype or the nastiness. There is plenty of both if you pay enough attention. I keep my eye on the prize and the prize is actually the process.
- Speaking of Joy the Baker, you might want to make her Cinnamon Roll King Cake to celebrate Mardi Gras.
- Good stuff: I’m late to the game on this one, but looking forward to catching up with Upworthy’s 31 Days of Happiness. I may try to read an entry each day to stretch out the joy.
