Alternate title: In which my posting schedule gets further out of order, resulting in two “links” posts in a row and a lack of real posts. Also, a New Years Resolution fail because I didn’t post twice this week. Sad truth: I have another post ready to go, but we’re doing this one today, because it’s Saturday, and Saturday is Highlights from My Reader day. (But that title doesn’t fit in the Title box)
Highlights for January 3-9: Numbers Edition
Every week, I feature a collection of links from the blogs I follow. If these aren’t enough for you, check out the “What I’m Reading” widget on the right sidebar.
This week’s theme: numbers and lists. You know I love lists.
Change.org has 5 Ways to Savor Your Food. Because if you’re not taking the time to enjoy what you’re eating, what’s the point?
5 Food Films Everyone Who Eats Should See, (more than 5, actually, since more are mentioned in the comments) is also from Change.org. I’ve only seen Food, Inc. Clearly, I need to update my Netflix cue.
Ironically, on a less serious note, Serious Eats has complied a list of 25 Things To Do With Hot Sauce. Especially tempting: #8, 10, 13.
The Atlantic is trying its hand with predicting the future with its list of 5 Cocktail Trends for a New Decade.
Just what I need: Epicurious just added a new post announcing that they have 1,644 (and counting!) professionally created and tested soup recipes on their site. Clearly, I don’t have enough soup recipes yet…
Love peanut butter? Planet Green has 15 recipes using peanut butter–and none of them are sandwiches.
Finally, if you’re still trying to get started on your New Years Resolutions, Huffington Post has a list of 10 Kick in the Pants Fitness Tips for 2010.
Finally, to make up for my failure to post, I offer this video of squirrel monkeys eating jello. I think it’s pretty stinkin’ cute. Enjoy! (via Serious Eats)
