Weekend Links - November 10, 2012

Well. What a week, right?

Election related things:
  • We Need the Family More than Ever by Sheila Gregoire. Gregoire's blog is quickly becoming one of my favorites. Her primary focus is helping marriages (including with intimate issues) but she's just so down to earth and I find myself nodding along with many of her posts.
  • Stop Overthinking the Election. OK, I admit, this one was mostly for me. And my husband. If you've already stopped thinking about the election than you might not need this post.
  • Good advice for pastors and church leaders or any Christian really: What We Need Now (and Evermore)
  • Plutarch Does it Again. There is nothing new under the sun, folks.
Non-election relate but somewhat serious:
Fun and Useful Stuff:
  • The Houses in Leinster Gardens.I love Great Britain and I love this elaborate "fool the eye" for beauty.
  • Stomach bug made its rounds through some of my family recently. I really must keep this recipe for Homemade Pedialyte handy. That stuff is expensive.
  • Pomegranates were on sale at Aldis this week. Which means I bought several. Which means I had to figure out how to eat them. This post helped: How to Seed and Juice a Pomegranate.
  • Christmas is coming (News flash!) and that might mean you have to put together a gift exchange. This site can help you with that: Draw Names for Your Gift Exchange. Much easier than simply drawing from a hat if you're trying to be sure no one gets their own name or their own child's name, etc.
Pins of the Week:
I really want to make this. I had a similar meal at Buca di Beppo one time and I loved it:

And I don't know if I've mentioned it before but I'm crazy for artichokes. Which means I also really want to make this Crab & Artichoke Dip. Now.
So, what caught your eye this week?

Well I wish you had posted that recipe for pedialyte last week - and yes, that means what you think it does :-( But actually, Lucy probably wouldn't drink it, she absolutely refuses to drink anything other than water or milk - even apple cider and hot chocolate! Weirdo - but more for me!

And that first meal looks very tasty and I don't normally care for shellfish.

I hope we won't be needing the Pedialyte anytime soon ... I live in fear of stomach bugs. I've done enough throwing up for our family in the last three months, thanks! :)

Thanks for linking up! Appreciate you!
