Whew…this week! This weekend! It’s just been one thing after another! Good stuff, but lots of stuff.
I wish I could say I’m having a lazy Sunday, but I’m actually working today and I worked last night too. Still, I’ve managed to get a little relaxation in here and there, so I feel surprisingly recharged today.
Here’s what I’ve got to share with you on this Sunday Funday!
“Hot Coffee.” Someone recommended this documentary to me in the comments a few weeks ago and I was immediately intrigued. It’s about the lawsuit in which the woman who was burned by her coffee sued McDonald’s. Beyond that, it’s about so-called frivolous lawsuits and tort reform. I highly recommend it. It gave me a new perspective on that case and also on the American civil justice system. It’s not available on Netflix or Amazon streaming unfortunately, but you can rent it if you have the Netflix disc option. It also replays on HBO pretty frequently, so I just recorded it.
Jay Smooth’s How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Learned to Love Talking About Race. A couple people have sent this to me recently and I’m so glad — it’s right up my alley, especially after my post about talking about race.
Move Over Vajazzling. That’s right. It’s time for feathers! This is brain food in that it makes your brain think, Well what the fucking fuck next, people?
10 Disney Princes and Whether or Not You Should Marry Them. I strongly disagree with their top picks, and the fact that they snubbed Prince Eric, whom I have been in love with since I was a little girl, but it’s still a fun read.
Chicken and ricotta meatballs in broth. This was super simple to make and that broth? Is awesome. I’m pretty sure it can cure any ills. I found it via my friend Ashley’s blog and I took her suggestion to brown the meatballs first…and it didn’t make much difference. I’m not sure it was worth it. Anyway, it’s a great weeknight dinner or for a I’m-sick-and-don’t-feel-like-cooking-for-myself-but-I-don’t-have-a-choice meal.
Baked egg boats. These have been going around Tumblr and Pinterest like mad for the past couple weeks and I’m not surprised. It’s one of those “Why did we never think to do that before?” kind of recipes. I tried them out last night because I was in the mood for breakfast for dinner. They were simple to make and so delicious. When I made them last night, I saved half of the egg mixture so we could bake in baguettes for breakfast this morning. Oh my God…just so good.
Parmesan potatoes. OK, first of all, I’m just really excited that Cooking Light introduced me to Simply Potatoes. They can be found in the refrigerated section at the grocery store and they are just fantastic. What a great, easy side dish. And the addition of Parmesan cheese is just a great idea. Eric and I have been eating these with bacon-wrapped steak and green beans for dinner. Such a great, satisfying meal, and it comes together surprisingly fast.
The best part of my weekend is the fact that because we had company, my apartment is super clean right now. Even though I have a lot to do today, it’s making me a million times more relaxed.
What are you all up to today? Any good articles or food to share?
