It’s Friday’s online finds: Cozy up and dig in.
- People want to cook and eat together. Modern life has other plans. *my argument against a meal kit is the cost. I can’t justify $25 for a vegetarian dinner for two. That’s bananas. (The Atlantic)
- “Roasting a nice chicken for people is such a good way to say ‘I love you.’” I recently found this note to myself scrawled on the back of an electric bill I had probably forgotten to pay, written one night after a dinner party. There was most likely a lot of wine that night (the best ideas always come from a lot of wine), which explains my poor penmanship and well-intentioned but fragmented deep chicken thought. (NYT)
- Should I just wait for the movie? Can I handle a sequel? (Amazon)
- A skullcuterie board (Small Fry)
- Buying a certified organic cotton T-shirt rather than an ordinary one would save a staggering 2,457 litres of water – enough for one person to drink eight glasses of water a day for three and a half years. (The Guardian)
- Why You Never See Your Friends Anymore. Our unpredictable and overburdened schedules are taking a dire toll on
Americansociety. (The Atlantic)
- According to this, I’m off the hook for making school lunches. Halleluja! (Hither & Thither)
- This Planter System Instantly Transforms Chain Link Fences Into Vertical Gardens (Core77)
- If you made it through middle school without once holding a Sharpie under your nose, bless your pure and gentle heart. (Mel)
- I am smart, I am blessed, I can do anything! (Twitter)
