7.29.2009 Legumes of the Week

"Legumes of the Week" is a list of links that I'll be posting on Wednesdays to get you through the rest of the week. Since this is my first round, some of these links are more than one week old... I'll try to keep them fresher next time around, but of course all of them are still great!

  • The Clouds Addict group on Flickr is full of soothing, dreamy photos and images.
  • Make sure to check out the two finalists in Modcloth's Terrific Transformations contest and cast your vote! Trust me, you'll be moved and inspired by the stories of these two strong and amazing women.


  1. I love when other people post links - it saves me a lot of time. ;] Hehe.
    What did you think of the WWII article? Most people I know, including myself, found it a bit offensive. =\

  2. Thanks guys!

    Andi--I was of two minds about it, too, actually. On the one hand, I thought it was very interesting that people are looking back to diets of yore as an healthier alternative to modern day eating habits, and certainly rationing forced people to be extremely mindful of their nutrition. On the other hand, why remodel your eating habits after a time when it was part and parcel of other privations people were forced to go through -- unless you are also going to acknowledge those hardships? I'm certainly guilty of that myself from time to time. For example, I bought a copy of "Make Do and Mend" recently and was thinking about all the cool housework and clothing care tips in it, when I caught myself and remembered that the phrase "make do and mend" was created by the government in the first place to put a chipper face on the severe hardships that British citizens were being subjected to.
    Anyway, that's my two cents! :-)
