Some Sunday Reading

My camera isn’t working, which makes me very sad and might make you sad too since you have probably noticed there haven’t been many pictures on the blog lately. So, instead of a Scene’s from my Life post today I just want to share some links that I found interesting lately: The Dinner Garden – I thought this was a super cool organization. Their mission is to end hunger through gardening. Here’s what their website says about them: “The dinner Garden provides seeds, gardening supplies, and gardening advice free of charge to all people in the United States of America. We assist those in need in establishing food security for their families. Our goal is for people to plant home, neighborhood, and container gardens so they can use the vegetables they grow for food and income.”

Breastfeeding in Public: A Christian Father Speaks Up – This is a letter from a Christian father to another man concerning a debate over public breastfeeding. I found it interesting.

Operation Beautiful – this is fun. The mission of Operation Beautiful “is to post anonymous notes in public places for other women to find. The point is that WE ARE ALL BEAUTIFUL. You are enough… just the way you are!” What a great message to spread.

The List: What to Eat, What to Avoid and How to Compromise - Katie at Kitchen Stewardship recently posted this great list which breaks down what we should eat and what we shouldn’t and also gives some great compromise suggestions. I thought it was really clear and helpful. She plans on updating and adding to it as well. Check it out.

How to Quit Coffee – I thought this was fascinating and it made so much sense to me. I wonder if something similar would work for how to quit sugar…?

Lamb Chops with Pistachio Tapenade – ok, so lately I’ve been seriously meat starved and craving meat and fat like crazy. This recipe is the one I most want to try. Doesn’t this just look delicious?

From Trash to Treasure: Chocolate-Dipped Candied Orange Peel – This is what I want for desert after my lamb chops. I also love the idea of making something so wonderful out of something that would usually go in the trash – we are all about that around here. I do my best to not waste any food, but I have definitely thrown away far too many orange peels in my day. Well, that won’t be happening anymore!

Well, enjoy!
