My Favourite Articles and Links This Week
This was fascinating – “I got my news from paper newspapers for two months, and this is what I learned.”
Everyone’s very focused on self care these days, but is it self care, or self-sabotage? I totally agree with this – I’m a little suspicious of the self care bandwagon. But then again, I suck at self care so I think this falls into the confirmation bias category.
My all-female coworker space had a whole article on forbes.com, and …. what’s that one page 2? Oh, you know, just a photo of me working, with “Julie Crawford, Founder, Knitted Bliss” underneath it. No big deal.
My Favourite Pins This Week
You guys know how I’m all about the one pan/pot/takeout menu sort of dinner, and this is pretty close- if you want to add in the mushrooms, you’ll need to pan fry them. But I’m lazy and would probably just put a tonne of spinach in with the rice and move on with my life. But I generally like to put spinach in everything, so that might not work for everyone. Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe post is here.
I don’t eat cheese cake very often because I don’t like the thick-as-brick restaurant style ones that you typically get, so solid you feel like you could build a house out of it. Making cheesecake at home usually yields a waaaaaaay lighter, softer, and more delicious cheesecake. This no-bake nutella version is definitely on my radar- I love nutella anything, and no restaurant cheese cake can compare with a homemade one. Pinterest link is here, and the recipe can be found here.
