Since I forgot to put up a Link of the Day yesterday, today you get a two-for-one special! I’ll be adding these blogs to my sidebar, as I really do like them and find them both inspiring in their way.
First up is Dinner: A Love Story. I can’t remember for the life of me how I came across this blog now, but OMG I love it so, so much, and suspect I will only grow to love it more and more as Sam gets older and presumably pickier, as children are wont to do. I feel strongly as the authors do that sitting down together daily as a family, to eat something reasonably nutritious, preferably homemade or at least semi-homemade, no matter how simple, is just so important to maintaining not just healthy bodies, but healthy communication. The recipes are totally do-able: quick, easy, kid-friendly, and creative. So happy to see they’ve come out with a cookbook! I do believe I will be buying that very, very soon.
And from the sublime to the ridiculous, the marvelously sarcastic Adequate Parenting blog that I found via Open Salon. The writer deploys irony as the sharpest of weapons in the mommy wars. A bracing, bracing read.
