Weekly roundup (2/18/11)

Brr, suddenly we were swept back into winter with a week’s worth of storms.

  • Looking for help on purchasing fish that’ll be good for you and the planet? The Monterey Bay Aquarium has a very neat app called Seafood Watch to help you make sustainable choices. Plus, it’s free!
  • Maybe it’s because of the chill in the air, but I got very excited about the BBC’s menu for afternoon tea.
  • So I’m mentally preparing myself to fulfill my 2011 Resolution (pie crust, in case you haven’t been keeping track). This video certainly helped! Maybe one day I’ll even try, eh?

Weekly roundup (2/11/11)

This beginning of this week was glorious in the Bay. I know 70 degree weather in February ultimately means nothing good, but you can’t help enjoying it, right?!

  • Valentine’s Day is almost here, and although I have no real strong emotion to the holiday, these precious heart-shaped macarons looks delightful and delicious (and a heck of a lot of work).
  • I’m going to a Valentine’s party this weekend, and we are required to bring a food dish associated with, ahem, an aphrodisiac. I’m trying to figure out where to get (and how to prepare) Spanish fly.
  • Okay, this is the opposite of funtimes, but now that I’m a proud CSA subscriber I really want to avoid food waste. This guide from Vegetarian Times on storing fruits and veggies seems like a really great resource.

I took today off, which has been absolutely splendid. Happy early weekend!

  • I’m becoming even more of a Bay Area cliche and have signed up for a CSA! Check out the deets here. Expect many more seasonal, veggie-fresh recipes (and probably more complaining about excess chard).
  • Super Bowl this weekend! I can’t tell you much about the teams, but I can tell you that this dip looks amazing (via Thrillist SF).
  • It was Chinese New Year yesterday! Happy year o’ the rabbit. If you’re hoping to get lucky, here are the foods for you.
