1. I’ve just discovered the blog Dinner: A Love Story through their column in Bon Appetit. While I don’t have kids to feed, I always like good writing about food, and DALS has it in spades. Their “What Your Drink Says About You” post is brilliant, especially the part about a Negroni:

What [a Negroni] says about you: Yes, my pants are red. You are not imagining that. I bought them last summer, when I was on my yearly trip to Rome with the family my wife doesn’t know about. Salute!

2. If all goes according to plan, I’ll be making raspberry jam this weekend and canning the hell out of some berries.
