I haven't linked for a while so I thought I would share some of my favorites.

*This thai peanut noodles is delicious.  I'm loving this so much that I just might have it every night.  I've made it with both tofu and chicken - of course everyone else in the family prefers chicken.  Really, what's so bad about tofu?

*I'm passionate about our culture of extreme parenting and how it affects mother's and their relationships with other mother's and their children.  I absolutely loved this article on engineering perfect children

...You know the child I am talking about: precious, wide-eyed, over-cared-for, fussy, in a beautiful sweater, or a carefully hipsterish T-shirt. Have we done him a favor by protecting him from everything, from dirt and dust and violence and sugar and boredom and egg whites and mean children who steal his plastic dinosaurs, from, in short, the everyday banging-up of the universe? The wooden toys that tastefully surround him, the all-sacrificing, well-meaning parents, with a library of books on how to make him turn out correctly— is all of it actually harming or denaturing him? ...

*Thanks to Cutzi, I made these Pumpkin Cinnamon rolls.  I made them in my bread machine using the dough setting.  Dave actually said they were one of the best he'd ever had. I saw this list of pumpkin recipes and I just couldn't help sampling a few.

*And here's a Thanksgiving printable we think is pretty cute.

Have a great Thanksgiving!  We have much to be thankful for.

Oh yay! I can live vicariously through your cinnamon rolls Even though we're generally not eating sugar or grain - I do sometimes cheat with gf stuff. I wonder if I could pull it off?
