Fun Things To Read On A Friday

Stop working! It's the weekend! #INYOFACE

Buster would like to remind you all that it is Friday, and that NO ONE should be working on Friday. :)

How are you all this week? Over here things were pretty mellow until yesterday when I ended up at the vet with Buster. I think that dog gets antsy if he doesn’t see the vet once a month. He must like the treats there or something, because MAN — THE FREQUENCY! He’s on the mend we think, so nothing to worry about, but that sure threw a wrench in my Thursday.

Anyway, what are you up to this weekend? Are you watching the Super Bowl? I don’t know if I can bring myself to watch it — the 49ers loss still feels SO RAW. :) We’ll see. Beyond that I’m thinking some workouts, some cooking, some reading — you know, the stuff weekends should ALWAYS be made of!

In the meantime, let’s get to the links, shall we?

*******

*The LA Times ran a nice feature on Sacramento as a vacation destination this week and I was like “HEY! That’s my town!” Also, one of my most favorite Mexican restaurants!

*Do you all know about glutamine’s super powers? This explanation is so clear and concise. I can totally vouch for the part about sugar cravings.

*This week PaleOMG did a round up of 48 Paleo Super Bowl Snacks. They look pretty delicious! And speaking of delicious, this week I made her Overnight Coffee Chia Breakfast Pudding (with Chameleon Cold Brew, SCHWING!) and it was a totally fun morning treat.

*OHMYGOD Did I just say Schwing? I think I did.

*Did you read this Yahoo! article on the Best/Worst health trends of 2013? It ruffled a lot of feathers because it included Whole 30 on the worst list. Since I love the Whole 30 I just rolled my eyes at it, but this eloquent rebuttal was definitely worth a read. I especially loved this:

We have got to stop equating weight loss to health because they may be connected, but they are not one and the same.

*100% validation for my unapologetic crush on Pitbull.

*Speaking of unapologetic love: 15 Things You Didn’t Know About Chipotle. It’s like a rabbit hole of awesome!

*I’m intrigued by the topics of this book. What are you reading right now, by the way. My library queue is low.

*This article about two twins, one who gave up sugar and one who gave up fat was awesome!

*Last weekend I used this recipe to make Garrett some cioppino and he said he had died and gone to heaven. Ringing endorsement, I’d say!

*****

Hope whatever is on your weekend agenda is awesome!!!

    OMG. I totally love Pitbull, too. Don’t tell anyone! ;-)

    “That’s why they call me Mr. Worldwide…”

    I always love random lists, especially on Fridays! I found the article about the twins interesting (although not surprising).

      I’m 5 of 6 on the library hold list. Apparently my library is lame because they only have ONE copy. BOO.

    I haven’t even gotten to the links yet, but I have to say that I feel ya. I’m a Patriots fan, and I feel exactly the same way about our loss. So I think I’m going to just watch the halftime show.

    I’m a Bears fan-but I am looking forward to the Superbowl! I like both teams, and Seattle is kind of the de facto home team around here in a way, I’m in Anchorage. Maybe because we spend a lot of time in the airport there? Ha!

    I am currently reading Mansfield Park for my book club, but I have the newest Flavia De Luce mystery waiting for me. I am also reading Mr. Penunmbra’s 24 Hour Bookstore, by Robin Sloan-which is very enjoyable so far. Oh-and just finished No Bed Of Roses by Joan Fontaine-I got it from the Interlibrary Loan through the library. A very entertaining read, and she does dish the dirt! A great book for anyone interested in that era of movie making.

    CHAMELEON COLD BREW. One of Austin’s finest exports.

      So addicting! I wanted to order some online — my Whole Foods only carries the Original and the Mocha (and even then only occasionally on this one) but hot damn the shipping was seriously cost prohibitive. I guess I just have to move to Austin now. :)

Welcome!
