Tell me you’re deep into this weekend feeling your finest!  I’ve indulgently got the heater running, and so far have the Christmas lights up on my tree.  It’s been one of those weekends with lots of joy and gathering, some chores and some sorrow, but here we are greeting another day with gratitude.  

Here’s some of the links that struck me this week.  I hope you find a handful of food reads:
