The Lovely List

The links are back. Enjoy.

Do you like sushi? I LOVE it. Last night, I watched the most brilliant movie in which sushi takes center stage. It’s called Jiro Dreams of Sushi. It will make your mouth water and your aspirations soar.

Have you ever watched Julia and Julia? I found it nearly unwatchable because I was so upset by the loud slurping scenes, which I found revolting. Apparently, I am not alone in my rage at cacophonous eating. What a relief!

Does food writing actually matter?

People in NYC now have access to backyards when they please. Hooray for more barbecues.

Here is just another reason the San Juan Islands are one of my favorite spots in the world. Yum.

Last week, I read Hungry Monkey and was blown away by the hilariously wonderful stories and recipes. If you have children and you want them to EAT, read it!

I also discovered The Homemade Pantry. Alana, where have you been all my life? I will never buy buttermilk again.

I don’t know about you, but I’m curious to know what the world eats.

Over and out, my friends.

    We invited Peter Menzel and Faith D’Aluisio (Hungry Planet) to speak at our annual global health conference a few years ago. They and their projects are quite amazing.

    That article on what the world eats is just fascinating. And strangely sad.

    Interesting links. You know I never paid attention to the slurping sounds in the movie. Now I have to watch it again :)
    I remember this wild red head’s pictures when she was just crawling. Look at her, conquering the world already :)

    Maeve curls are so beautiful! Thanks for the well wishes on Ruby’s arrival. I feel like I’ve fallen down the bebe hole- a newborn is so consuming! Not sure when I’ll be back to baking and blogging but at least nursing gives me ample time to catch up on my favorite blogs. P.S. I’m investing in a Beco carrier post haste- thanks for the tip!

      Shelley, It’s great to hear from you! I know you must be totally exhausted, but totally in love at the same time. Yes– so consuming! I am sending you tons of restful vibes from Seattle. Keep in touch!
