Sincerely Seven: Week 29

Hello friends! Another Sunday, another week gone by. I’m on my THIRD book of this week, 32nd of the 2020 year (ugh I know, I’m the worst), so I’m quickly typing this up so I can get back to my book. I’m currently reading Such a Fun Age, and would really recommend, it’s pretty good so far! Nothing much else happened this week. I wish I had a more exciting life for you all!

Very beautiful plate of chicken parm I made this week, see below for my thoughts on bucatini ❤ 
  1. I made these vegan chocolate thumbprint cookies this week, I love The Loopy Whisk for plant based recipes. I am not personally vegan (butter is wonderful), but I do try to include more plant based recipes in my life.
  2. I loved this piece from Stacey Alderman, The Only Way Out is Through. It’s a very honest piece and I found comfort in someone else  being about 5 seconds away from losing it on some days. I also loved hearing her and her husband’s story and how they’ve overcome hardships that life has thrown at them. I can’t wait to read the next part!
  3. On that note, here is a great read about practicing self care during COVID should be a marathon, not a sprint. We need to educate ourselves on the growing list of prominent social issues (new this week, child trafficking), but we also need to prevent burnout. It’s OK if you take a break from social media, it’s OK if you tune out, no one is going to ‘cancel’ you.
  4. I’m sure everyone is well aware, but Rep. John Lewis passed away this week. I loved Obama’s statement about his passing, reminding us all of the importance of voting, and how Lewis’s legacy will live on, in those who continue to imagine and fight for a better America. And also, please take note and remember those senators who posted tributes with pictures of black men who weren’t even John Lewis. *smh*
  5. Barilla took a step forward in sustainability by removing the plastic window from their pasta packaging, making it easier for consumers to recycle packaging. I mean, honestly, now that I think about it, we don’t even need the window, we can usually tell what the pasta looks like if there’s an image on front of the box. I really hope other brands follow suit!
  6. Since we’re on pasta, my favorite carb, here is a great ranking of pasta types. I personally love bucatini that I buy from Domenico’s Foods at the farmer’s market. What’s your favorite noodle?
  7. Finally, what’s your favorite condiment? If it’s sriracha, then this video might interest you on how sriracha is made.  Very interesting that the peppers that go into it only grow for 4 months out of the year!

That’s all folks. I’m off to walk on the beach because I live in California. I’ll think of each of you while I look out to the ocean and send good vibes your way for the week ahead!

Sincerely,

Sara Ann
