{Weekend Link Love} A La Hurricane Sandy

I am stuck inside today, working from home, because the MTA has shut down public transportation in NYC.

So what better way to spend my time than sharing some link love for all of you who are also sitting at home, bored of watching/listening to the TV/radio broadcasts about this storm that hasn’t quite hit yet!

I have a lot of links because it’s been a while since I did one of these.

Recipe Link Love

  • Roasted Fruit – This sounds like a great recipe for those of us who have a lot of fruit sitting around (hello, seasonal apples and pears). Suggested use: oatmeal or dessert topping.
  • Argentinean Empanadas – Back in August, Bobby and I went down to visit Coco for her baby shower. (She has since had her beautiful daughter!) Coco made the most delicious Argentinean Empanadas, and promised me the recipe – so here it is. Can’t wait to make these.

Weekend Link Love – 1.22.2012

I only have a few links this week. Some weeks the internet is full of link love nuggets and other weeks I find myself searching high and low for interesting articles.

Random Links of Love

Gena @ Choosing Raw linked to a really insightful article on HuffPo about the half lives of eating disorders. Gena does a much better job dissecting the article than I could, so I encourage you to check out her thoughts on the matter. As a recovered ED-person, I found myself nodding along with both posts, and I think anyone with an interest in mental health would find them intriguing. Liu delves into the genetic aspects of ED susceptibility and personality traits associated with the disease.

I’m sure most of you have seen the various “Sh;t XYZs Say” videos floating around lately, but just in case you haven’t, here are some of my favorites:

Five Things Friday – from France!

Bounjour again from Paris! We are here until Sunday in the wee hours of the morning. (We leave around 9ish France time which is 3am NYC time.) We’re having a lovely time and I will be sure to post more pictures soon. I just can’t stay away from blogging. I’m glad I have a hobby that is cathartic and calming and makes me feel at home even when I am halfway round the world. Anyway, today I wanted to share some things – Clare has recently been doing this meme and I thought I might try it as well this week. I always have things to tell you guys about.

  1. Clare is giving away a t-shirt. It ends tomorrow (6/11) at midnight.
  2. I am in love with cutoff jean shorts. I just saw two today – on Little Tin Soldier AND on What Would a Nerd Wear. I cannot resist any longer. I will have to pick up a pair of thrift shop jeans when I get back to the states and hack away.
