Newsletters

Who else has noticed newsletters are popping up everywhere?

I first signed up for Lenny and after recommending it to several girlfriends, I decided to share it here.  Lenny covers such a broad range of topics concerning women.  Things I'd never thought of before.  Endometriosis...I had no idea.  Anyway, I really enjoy it.

In one of those times I went on recommending Lenny, one of the girls recommended Daily Skimm.  Which, honestly, once we left our hangout I completely forgot about.  Until the next morning, delaying getting out of bed for my 6:30 am gym class, I checked my email and found she forwarded it to me.  This is clearly a news newsletter designed for 20 somethings.  It reads easy.  It's good to keep a general eye on the news (which I generally don't).  So I've only been at this one for a couple days.  But so far so good.

So there you go.  My two recommendations for the many, many newsletters popping up right now.  What's your favorite?

  1. I have mixed feelings about the Skimm - I do subscribe to it, but don't really recommend it except as a general what's happening in the world kind of thing. They've linked to some kinda terrible news sources in the past (in addition to having more Fox/CNN links than I would prefer as well), so while it's a good place to get started, its not really good for any actual nuanced understanding of things. Hope that makes sense.

    1. I completely agree! It's a nice place to get started!

Veggie Tinga

I made Vegetarian Tinga for a mexican pot luck I went to on Tuesday.


Many people have never heard of Tinga, let alone knowing you can make it vegetarian style.  You absolutely can!  And it's so easy.


Traditional tinga is made of shredded chicken with chipotle flavoring.  I used cabbage instead of the chicken.


I looked at a lot of different recipes online, but couldn't find a recipe for the veggie tinga I had in mind, so I ended up combining the guidelines of those recipes and making my own.


Here's what I did:


1 onion
1 head of cabbage
1 7oz. can chipotle (the peppers in adobo sauce)
5 ish roma tomatoes
olive oil


-Saute onion in olive oil.
-Chop cabbage (I used youtube to help me figure out the best way to do that) add to onion and saute.
-Blend the chipotle and tomatoes in blender.
Note:  Some people only like to add the sauce from the chipotle peppers.  I added the entire can (including the peppers themselves).  It's up to you depending on how spicy you want it.  (I like my food s…

Registration

*Karen tells me that is not what I'm supposed to say, but it makes sense in my head...

Saturday I was in San Antonio for work, I did get to hang out with a friend while I was in town so that definitely made the trip better, combined with the fact that the volunteers there are just wonderful.

I knew Sunday was going to be overwhelming before I left on Friday.  I always write lists when I'm overwhelmed, I wrote a list.  (Even though I hardly referenced it on Sunday.)  Just writing it down helps me feel better.

Sunday we registered for at two places, starting at 9am.  When we finished the second one (which we were both dragging ourselves through) it felt like it was time for bed...it was 2pm.  Guys, this experience brought so much clarity to people's registerys.  I would not necessarily say it was a fun experience.  And I am very happy Mike seems to have a vision because we would limit the insane number of options down to a couple options together and then I would say I don'…

Moisturizer

I said when I turned 30 in January I was going to start using moisturizer.  Now, 6 months later, I can say I've kind of achieved the goal, but not really...

I have a moisturizer from several years ago, which I received as a Christmas gift.  I used it off and on over the years, mostly off.  I've probably used it more this year than ever before, granted the bar was very low.

I don't like it though.  I don't like the smell or really how it feels either.

Then I heard True Botanicals released a lower-priced Basics collection designed for younger skin, technically for people in their 20s, but whatever.  I decided to try their hydrating oil (the smallest one) to see if I am able to be consistent with use.

First impression: I'm still figuring out how much to use, but I love the smell.
