Emptying my Pocket, Vol. 3

These pocket posts can’t exclusively showcase my gluttony, so I’ll limit myself to five food links this time and then pretend that I have at least five other interests.

  1. Spring, made into tiny rhubarb tartlets. (Bonus: rhubarb mojito.)
  2. I’m infamous for using pineapple in the weirdest (but most delicious!) ways (on pizza, to dip in cheese fondue, etc). Looks like I can add one more to my repertoire: pineapple cucumber gazpacho.
  3. I’m sure that including Chai spices in something makes it instantly healthy. Even ice cream.
  4. Whenever I have a bunch of some legumes I want to use up, I consult Heidi’s recipe index. The other day, I made this delicious green lentil soup.
  5. One of those “I’ve been doing it all wrong then” realisations: how to get perfectly browned tofu.
  6. Even though my last phone (a Galaxy SII) was destroyed by some random malware, I decided to make a Galaxy SII Plus my new smartphone of choice. So I figured it wouldn’t hurt to learn how Samsung became the world’s #1 smartphone maker.
  7. What’s it like to be a brain surgeon? What are the challenges in being a bikini waxer? 15 people reveal their job secrets – fun and insightful.
  8. Incredible: twins separated at birth find each other over social media.
  9. You had me at “abandoned places”. I particularly love number 2, 8 and 21.
  10. Especially interesting after returning home: Miami, my way.
  11. This is not so far from a lot of the language coming from me (in my head only, obvs): a fuckton of potassium.
  12. On the “to try out” list: the scientific 7-minute workout.
  13. This is absolutely hilarious.
  14. A pretty DIY that even I as a very non-DIY-talented gal could do (at least I like to think so).
  15. And, because we all don’t spend enough time on the internets: the best 140 Twitter feeds of all time (incl. the Mountain Goats!)

  1. Oh man, so much good stuff here! My mind is seriously blown by the twins thing. Can’t wait to see that documentary when they finish it. All five food links are awesome and I especially needed the ones on tofu and lentils!

    P.s. – I’ve been doing that 7 minute workout, but it’s basically useless unless you do it at least 3 times through. I knew 7 minutes was WAY too good to be true!

    • Thanks for commenting, Beckie! I love your blog :)

      And cheers for the workout heads-up, it indeed sounded too good to be true…

      Have a great weekend!
