haven't done one of my info-roundups lately (but you can see a few of my past ones here, here and here), and folder of items I want to share has gotten a bit full... so I'm mixing it up on a Thursday, and posting a few choice tidbits I've had tucked away. Enjoy!
1. With summer coming (theoretically... it still feels rather slow but I'm not complaining, at least there aren't any tornadoes!), I am in desperate need to get the freezer cleaned out and ready to receive new bounty. Here's a great article to inspire me. I love the idea of writing the contents on the door in dry-erase marker. Quite clever.
2. I am a big Tetris fan. I lost hours/days/weeks to Tetris in college (back in the day). And also, maybe a little bit of time a couple of years ago when we were reintroduced... but this outfit would tip me over from fan to fa-NA-tic, for sure! Still, kinda cool...
3. Have you run out of meal ideas? Here are 100 recipes to rev up your menu planning.
4. Looking for a new crafty outlet? Just a few (100 tutorials) ideas to get your creative juices flowing...
5. This concept has me so intrigued... I believe that I would totally eat salad every day if I had salad in a jar:
6. Just a little bit of leftover royal wedding hoopla: Some dude got Wills and Kate tooth tattoos. Good grief.
7. How to be like Steve Jobs. I have been feeling the pain of iTunes this week, so I think this label is rather spot on.
8. Extreme minimalism: Could you pare your belongings down to 15 items? I'm pretty sure I couldn't... but this guy did. I kind of admire it, but also shake my head a bit at the idea. Seems a little close to that post-college "can I sleep on your sofa this week" lifestyle that everyone tries to avoid later in life...
9. Bouncing gelatin, just because it's so rad:
10. Pantone's Fall 2011 color chart. Very pretty!
11. Two items relative to cooking + time: That is, the idea that it should take TIME to make a good meal. While this is true, in theory, it's a pretty hard argument to make to people for whom time is a precious commodity, who work and juggle family activities and life. And, frankly, may not prioritize "home-cooked" meals (which everyone defines differently, of course).
a. Michael Ruhlman on quick and easy cooking. (30-minute meals are not a good thing, in his world... He does have a point.)
b. Google has a new recipe search tool. (It does not favor the small, specialty blogs/sites, in case you're wondering. Bigger is better in their world.)
12. Mighty Girl: A lovely post about childhood memories; some really sweet memories!
13. Fascinating obituary of an anti-social socialite.
Hope there was an item or two to pique your interest! Me, I'm especially fascinated by that obit. Which one was your favorite?
For more Thursday 13s, go here. And have a fabulous Thursday!
