Friday Eating & Reading


What we’re reading and eating this week:

How to Cook for Every Back-to-School Meal, by yours truly.

I’m late on this one, but if you missed Stephen Colbert on WTF talking about faith, sci-fi, depression, joy, all interspersed with recitation of poetry and Shakespearean sonnets, please listen immediately.

My kind of anniversary gift. (How sweet is that?)

Everyone I know is reading this right now, and I plan to join them this weekend.

Lentil-Cauli taco meat FTW!

My daughter’s cross-country team is coming over for a pasta party tonight and I’m going with Marcella’s famous 3-ingredient tomato sauce instead of Rao’s. Let’s see how it goes!

The best cross-sections in picture books!

What if We All Ate a Bit Less Meat?

A topic near and dear to my heart: Taking Back Family Dinner.

Attn: Tri-Staters & Locals: The Rivertown Public Market  is returning on September 14! Come for the lobster rolls, the whole hog Carolina barbecue, craft drinks, insta-ready ice cream, the awesome line-up of activities for kids…and to say hi to me!

Lastly: José Andrés’ has already arrived in the Bahamas by helicopter (apparently holding piles of food and supplies on his own lap) to cook and bring relief to families devastated by Dorian. Let’s please do our part and donate to his World Central Kitchen and keep his operation going. So much good in this world, it’s amazing.

Have a great weekend.
