Oh man, I am looking forward to the weekend. My last few weekends have been packed with activity. First, there was the Kentucky Derby, a weekend filled with parties, some fairly successful betting, mint juleps, and large hats. Then, last weekend I flew back to DC to celebrate Mother's Day and my birthday. I came back on Monday morning, exhausted. Don't get me wrong, the last two weekends were unforgettable, but I am a little bit tired. The upcoming weekend is thankfully empty and I have nothing but sleep to catch up on, reading to do, and my neighborhood farmer's market to visit.
Anyway, I thought I would share a few links that I have been reading/watching this week. Hope everyone has a great weekend!
- David Lebovitz on how to prepare and cook artichokes.
- Take ten minutes to watch this short film that brings to life David Foster Wallace's 2005 commencement speech This Is Water — an insightful and compelling discussion about awareness, choice, and education.
- Obligatory post because I live in Louisville, but also because (embarrassingly enough) I always laugh at the "I think I ate the bones" commercial.
- This spring salad looks amazing.
- One of the (many thousand) reasons I'm jealous of NYC residents: they have a Bluth Frozen Banana Stand.
- Love & Lemons has posted a creamy leek and almond pasta, that I want to eat immediately.
- Kale salads have become cool. I use kale in pasta, soup, and smoothies, so I guess I shouldn't be averse to this.
- While I would like to start composting, I'm not yet convinced I should do it in an apartment.
