This Week's Best Stuff on the Internet

I wish there was a service that let you rent an Italian grandma. Until then, I'll keep watching this video of nonnas eating Olive Garden.

The actual best thing I read this week: Eleanor Roosevelt's horrible, no good, very bad taste in food. Or was it just revenge against her philandering husband? A very fun read in White House culinary history

I especially love number 13 on this list of 20 Things to Do When You're 30 That Will Make Your Life Better at 50.

Oh what do ya know? Another article I like about facing death in a realistic way, this time from a doctor's perspective. Good stuff. 

More excellent advice from Sarah Von Bargen: You're allowed to change, even if it weirds out your friends & family for a second. 

Think your opinions on taxes, social issues and politics are in the majority? Guess what? Social media might be tricking you.

I am definitely making this pulled pork with homemade BBQ sauce. And maybe a big, fat pitcher of this cucumber lemonade. We had this at my wedding and it was a hit. Just add vodka!

PS My most popular post this week was about taking a Great American Road Trip All By Yourself. All you need is a car, a map, some beef jerky & AAA!
