The Weekend Haps – May 30


Frrrriiieeeennndddsss…. Happy Weekend. How are we? How was your May? I can’t believe it’ll be June next week. Fultz and I will celebrate ELEVEN years of marriage next Saturday, which completely blows my mind. It’ll obviously look different than last year’s anniversary, but I’m sure we’ll find a way to make it special.

In case you missed it…

  • Monday I gave you a little tour of our laundry room and guest bathroom – the two smallest rooms in the house, that are two of my favorite rooms in the house.

  • Thursday was…different. If you missed it, I shared my top resources for becoming actively anti-racist. I share these humbly, as someone who has not always fought this fight and is still learning. Articles, books, movies, and ACTION STEPS. I hope you’ll read it and share it with friends and family who might benefit from it.

Now for the haps…

  • Anyone else want vegetables and salads when the weather gets warm? I mean, listen: I still need cheeseburgers and tacos, too; but the salad cravings definitely amp up when the temperature rises. I made this couscous-based salad this week and it was a BIG hit.

  • A strong case could be made that Anthony Bourdain taught me how to cook. I poured over Kitchen Confidential and Medium Raw, watched No Reservations like it was my job, and basically any technique I have I learned in a 3-week Sur la Table class that went through his Les Halles cookbook. ANYWAYS, he recommended this knife for cutting bread and tomatoes, but I’ve only just now bought it. Conclusion: it’s awesome and you need it.

  • I use a kitchen scale when I make coffee now…you know, like a psycho.

  • The Talented Mr. Ripley is one of my very favorite movies, but I’m only now reading (and loving) the novels. VERY pumped that they are going to turn it into a series next.

  • I love a good face mask. This one has to be one of my favorites – it’s clarifying, but not irritating, and has the most amazing botanical smell. My face feels insanely smooth and healthy after I use it.

What are you up to? Does life feel more normal yet for you since things are starting to open up? We haven’t braved many outings at all really, but I think just seeing more cars on the road has indicated a shift of some kind. What a time to be alive.
