Stuff I saw from my subscriptions mailbox today

Today being a holiday, I thought I would tackle sifting through my email box and sorting some stuff out, especially in under the “SUBSCRIPTION” folder.

I started at 10am. It is now nearly 7pm. What the hell.

But nonetheless, I’ve found some gems that I wanted to share πŸ™‚

I love the site The Kitchn. I love to cook (and eat), and this site has always given me interesting ideas to feed people with.Β  Because I’m a full time working mom, I try to keep things simple, healthy, at the very least not processed, and something that can be heated up in 10mins. Let’s be honest: there are A LOT of days that I come home and the last thing I want to do is pretend to be Ina Garten, even if I want to be her, and swish around the kitchen plopping things into a pan I know I will have to clean later anyway. Plus, yeah, the tropical heat.Β  So I love the idea of cooking huge batches of stuff, and sticking it in the freezer.Β  This entry is awesome:

I love steak. I love Vietnamese food. Put the two together and I am a happy bunny:

My hubby loves squid so I think I will make this sometime soon πŸ™‚

I’ve been on a sandwich making kick lately and this landed in my mailbox. The basil outside is getting unruly so I think I will make this next week πŸ™‚

And because this summer seems to be dragging on forever (it just started and I want it to end already), here are some summer recipes πŸ™‚

I also love SAVEUR. If you haven’t seen it, I suggest you click on this link. This recipe is for dolmades, a favorite of mine, just hard to find grape leaves here in Manila πŸ™‚

If you like eggs as much as I do, check this recipe out. Seems simple enough, right?

This post is just cool. If you haven’t subscribed or looked at the blog BRAIN PICKINGS, I suggest you do, especially if you’re a reader. They have awesome posts like THIS one:

There’s even a reimagined Periodic Table πŸ™‚

Saw these lovely, but very sad photographs from WIRED, whose online publication I’m subscribed to and love.Β

I love looking at maps. These are pretty cool:

Something to help push the creative juices flowing even in this heat:

If you like art, like I do, check these cheeky buggers out:

And how lovely and a little eerie are these pictures from INSIDE musical instruments, or rather what the artist thought they would look like:

Ok off the computer I go. Need to indulge in some “mommy time” with my books πŸ™‚Β  I’ll leave you with a little Liz Phair of yore. Twas her birthday the other day πŸ™‚
