Hello friends. Another week creeping closer to the holiday season. Are you feeling it in the air? I am… mostly because there was no fresh rosemary at the grocery store this morning. Everyone is thinking ahead / prepared / making Rosemary Cornbread Stuffing from scratch and… well, I really needed some rosemary.
I’m back from a whirlwind of work in New York City and when I got home Tron told me that he had a looooong week eating my jade plant and scratching the door frames. We all carry our own weight in the work world, right?
Here are some words from the week:
• This is a good read: Obama Reckons With A Trump Presidency
• There are all sorts of words and perspectives floating around the Internet in these post-election days. I appreciate this perspective from one of my favorite writers. None of the Old Rules Apply: Dave Eggers travels through post-election America
• How We Built Our Bubble / our echo chambers change but stay the same, honestly.
• We have 1000 years to find a new planet to live on. Ok? We’ll start tomorrow. Put it on the Monday list. This isn’t going to be a great thing to procrastinate, but we’re going to anyway I just know it.
• Have you seen that show This Life With Lisa Ling? It’s thoughtful, and deep and difficult and really an important show. This week her story is about women who have to fight custody battles against their rapists.
• How exercise might keep depression at bay. It feels real for my brain, thank you yoga.
• Welcome to Hillstone, America’s Favorite Restaurant. This is absolutely true. I will always eat their cheeseburger and artichoke dip and everything. Everything is always good/great!
• In this weeks issue of Thing I Watched Most Of On A Plane, Nothing Left Unsaid: Gloria Vanderbilt and Anderson Cooper.
Did you know my little sister Lauren makes (literally) the most incredible ice cream in Seattle? She’s raising money to help get some equipment she needs to expand her business and you can help support here: Help Sweet Lo Ice Cream. Also, here’s more about my sweet sister in Seattle Magazine.
• It is time. Respect: Dad’s Sweet Potato Pie
• Maybe you can’t be with aaalll of your loved ones this Thanksgiving holiday, but you can make the signature dishes of those you love. That’s one way to have them at the table with you. These Baked Artichoke Squares from my maj, Tracy, are hitting my table this year.
• Today I’m hosting my first Cookbook Club in my studio space. I’m inviting a few friends over and we’re all cooking from the book Everything I Want To Eat by Jessica Koslow. Check it out on my Instagram Stories today and Facebook Live!
• On the short list of things I covet very much: diamond and moonstone hoop earrings.
