Good Friday morning to all! See that picture above? That’s me rewarding myself for resourcefully using what we had in the pantry to make dinner: chile-cumin turkey burgers, smoky-chile sweet potato wedges with lime, and a giant salad. Also, I was getting into honeymoon mode, except I suspect I’ll be drinking Red Stripes while in Jamaica. Our flight tomorrow is so early, that we might be waking up when some of you (some of the hipper, cooler of you) will be just getting to sleep. I don’t expect to have much internets there, and I’m kind of looking to being untethered, so I don’t expect to post any links next Friday – I hope you understand. And since it’ll be well over a week until we speak again, I wish you a wonderful weekend, a stress-free week, and another great weekend following. Cheers!
Last month, SCOTUS ruled in favor of allowing the importation and resale of foreign editions of American works, which are often cheaper than domestic editions. I’m still muddling through this article, and if time allows, this opinion.
The spread of obesity in America. Mind-boggling.
Where I hardly go anymore. Beautifully, written Kasey, and though I’m not yet a parent, I know exactly where she’s coming from.
Climate change and wine – how it’s affecting growers.
Worst baby names for San Franciscans. Quite funny. It gets me thinking about what would worst baby names for New Yorkers be?
Interview & Giveaway:
The lovely ladies who run Pantry Confidential (Hana Choi and Christine Han) profiled me on their fabulous blog. I had such a blast spending an afternoon with them in the apartment, cooking, laughing, and eating. I’m excited to hang out with them after I get back from Jamaica. There’ll definitely be some happy hour beers consumed! Also, at the bottom of the interview, they’re doing a giveaway for The Kimchi Cookbook. Leave them a comment for your chance to win. Giveaway runs through 4/30/13 11:59 pm EST.
RSS Reader Woes: I’m sure that by now everyone knows Google Reader is going away (sob!). Since the announcement was made, I’ve been trying many other RSS readers for size, and so far, I’m happiest with the Old Reader, which, apparently, was designed to maintain the same look, feel, and functionality of the old google reader. My deepest thanks to the team behind the Old Reader – it’s clean, minimalist, organized – same reasons I so love the Google Reader. I did try Bloglovin’ and Feedly, among several others – and really didn’t like the layout. To be honest, I pretty much hated every other RSS feed because of how the feeds were grouped and displayed. “Less, not more,” I kept muttering to myself, and the Old Reader (bless them!) fits that bill to a tee. A quick note: if you do decide to switch over to the Old Reader, the site will tell you that there is an ‘x’ number of people ahead of you. Don’t worry about it – just let some time pass, and before you know it, you’ll get an email that says your feed have been imported – hooray! Oh, and as for all you folks using Google Reader to feed into your links (on the blog) page (like I do), I am still researching if there’s a way to have it display the links in a dynamic and not static fashion. If anyone knows of anything, please let all of us know.
