Paul Kalanithi’s “When Breath Becomes Air”
What I’m cooking:
I’ve loved the Skinny Taste blog for years, but just got the Skinny Taste Fast and Slow Cookbook. For some reason lately I’ve been very into physical cookbooks. It’s so chaotic already cooking with little kids that it’s nice to have an open book to refer to versus trying to bring it up on my laptop or phone and having to unlock screens with hands covered in butter or flour or what not.
What I’m eating:
What I’m wearing:
–These sweatpants. I got two pairs of these to wear at the hospital, and I’ve been nearly living in them ever since. I do laundry when I don’t really need to just to get a clean pair of these to wear. They are soft, comfy, cozy, a good weight (which is hard to come by since I veer from freezing at night to drenched in sweat from breastfeeding menopause like hot flashes).
-These t-shirts. Yes, they are maternity. No I don’t care. I will wear them forever. They are great for going out to the gym or on a walk, great for sleeping in, and great for wearing all day long with the above leggings or sweat pants. Being a mother in winter really makes you perfect the art of at home athleisure wear.
-What I’m watching:
-The Crown on Netflix. I watch this show about the life of Queen Elizabeth when I want something highly bingeable but not totally embarrassing like most of my viewing habits. Even though it’s at its heart a soap, it just feels more distinguished and high brow. And the costumes and period details are gorgeous.
-Black-ish on Hulu. Really late to the party on this one, but this show is SO funny. I put this on when I want something light and silly on in the background when I’m cleaning or cooking.
