Carnivals and other good reading. I didn’t get it done last week so this is a two-week edition.
“Does Your Spending Support Your Values?” appears in the 23rd Rich Life Carnival. Limitless Units posted about breaking his addiction to caffeine. I went through this process myself a couple of years ago. It was a welcome change and, much as I love coffee, I have no plans to go back!
The Ultimate Christmas Dessert: Buche de Noel appears in the Make it From Scratch Carnival at 11th Heaven’s Homemaking Haven. Nerd Family Food has a recipe for Peppermint Chocolate Chip Biscotti that looks great.
Finding Friends appears in the Advice for Women from Women Carnival at the carnival’s homepage.
As the Economy Goes, So Goes Recycling appears in the All Things Eco Carnival at Focus Organic.com
Why Not Try a Duck? appears in the Make It From Scratch carnival at Adventures in the 100 Acre Wood. The Adventures of the Williams Family has a great recipe for homemade caramels and caramel turtles – yum! Funny About Money posted her menu and instructions for the fabulous Christmas dinner she has planned. I wonder if she has any room at her table?
Other good reading around the Web –
Of Cabbages and Kings is a neat blog, whose author posts about various amusing things that strike her fancy. Friday she posted a cute poem about what to give her blog buddies for Christmas. She decided a little link love was the perfect gift. It’s a funny poem and a great idea.
In a very timely posting Leo from Zen Habits wrote A Minimalist’s Guide to Using Twitter. In a mad burst of forward looking I signed up for a Twitter account and a Facebook page. Wow, aren’t I so 2008? (I did promise my son I would not ask to be his Facebook friend.) It was good to read Leo’s post as I’m not exactly sure what I’m going to do with these tools.
If you don’t know about Life on Avenue Z’s Virtual Food Drive, you should check it out. She and her readers are doing wonderful work helping others.
