Weekly Roundup: I'd Rather Be Picking Peaches Edition

Looking forward to a glass of wine (or two) tonight. I need it after this week!

Good afternoon ModernDomestic readers! I’m hoping that pending “severe” thunderstorms won’t ruin my evening plans – wine and dinner with friends at Vinoteca, in U Street. This weekend I’m off to pick blackberries and peaches at a farm in Maryland, and on Sunday I’m at all all-day sewing workshop. It’s going to be a busy, domestic-themed weekend. I’m excited!

Recipes I want to try:

Other news from this week’s Internet ramblings:

  • Michael Pollen chronicles how the rise of food TV has changed cooking from a daily necessity to a spectator sport.
  • Will taxidermied animals replace Mid-Century Modern furniture as the new “hot” design trend? First, The New York Times has an article about the new “antique” style that features way too many dead stuffed animals. Then, Design*Sponge sends out an email about Hello Victory’s German vintage biology charts featuring partially dissected animals.
  • Capitol Spice has tips for stretching your dining dollar. Thank you – this is exactly the kind of post I need!
  • A preview from Rose Levy Beranbaum’s new book, Rose’s Heavenly Cakes.

Happy Friday!
