Weekend Link Love – 07.10.2011

Food Links of Love

  • Chocolate Chip Cookies for One – totally perfect for my sweet tooth. I don’t like making a whole batch because I am the only one who likes sweet things in this house. I might try them with oatmeal instead of flour; I haven’t had oatmeal in ages and I miss it.
  • Corn Chowder a la Sophia – I think I want to make all of Sophia’s recipes, but this one is really calling to me. I actually rarely make anything interesting anymore so maybe I will challenge myself this week to make some new recipes.
  • I just found the Hip Chick’s Guide to Macrobiotics at the thrift shop for $1.99. Of course I picked it up. I had actually been talking about this book earlier this week with a girl I just met. I started it today on the boat; it’s a lot better than I had expected.

Fitness Links of Love

  • YogaDownload giveaway – you have until Wednesday to enter.
  • 101 Days of Summer update – My goals this week are to do 45 minutes of walking a day and some yoga. I think I’m gonna take a little rest from intense stuff this week. It’s too damn hot.
  • How to Squat – I was browsing MDA and found this interesting post. Check out the difference between the “Asian squat” and the “Western squat”. (Guess which is the proper way.)

I’ll leave you with this really inspiring video I came across. Enjoy!

What has inspired you this week?

  1. Current inspirations: the gorgeous scenery in Glacier National Park (just got back from a trip), my friend Jessica’s delicious vegan spinach “sausage” dip, and fresh farmers’ market peaches.

  2. I’ve seen that MDA post on squats. It’s actually hard to do the asian squat for long..I did them for a while 🙂
    But I like it better!

    I grew up sailing, I LOVE IT. So glad you got to go out and that lighthouse is so pretty!

    oatmeal cookie for one!!!

    funny thing I figured out how to make a cookie for one in a mug when I was a teenager… long before blogs.

    I was a teenager with a sweet tooth and babysitting my brother…:)

    have a great week!

  3. What a fun weekend Maggie! I’ve been on boats before, but never a sailboat. My dad was infatuated with boats – he even built a sail boat to scale and used to sit it on top of the roof of our car to watch the wind go through the sails – he always said he was going to go sailing, but he never got the chance. 🙁

    Love all your links!!
