This week….

Grateful for: A sunny spring weekend that included several walks and runs and outdoor reading.

Favorite eats: Great Harvest Bread’s salted caramel cookie. THIS COOKIE, Y’ALL. I love it so much. I ate three of them this week (!) It’s a problem. I also made these paleo, whole30 friendly Coconut Crusted Chicken Patties which were easy and tasty. The fry then bake method seemed to keep the chicken from drying out. We ate them with homemade coleslaw from the Well Fed 2 cookbook. I love making a giant batch of coleslaw because then I have ready made veggies available for several meals throughout the week.

Some reads:

What is it like to be poor at an Ivy League school?
“Receiving a full scholarship to an Ivy League school, while a transformative experience for the nation’s poorest students, is only the first hurdle.” So many important points in this article related to fitting in, identities, and thriving in college.

This article about former NFL player Darren Sharper’s rape spree was infuriating.

An interesting profile of L.L.Bean, how their boots came to be the “it” item, and how they treat their workers. I am always intrigued by companies that care for their employees – how they do it and how it impacts their business.

This video of emails acted out in real life made me laugh out loud.
