From Where We Stand: Our Weekend in Photos

August 10, 2015

A glimpse into our editors' lives: Here's how the world looks from where we stand.

Today: Dubious dinners, delicious dinners, and getting away.

Now that I've settled into my new apartment, I want to make sure my new routine includes cooking for the week one day of the weekend (which means having a somewhat full fridge and carving out time to pick recipes and then cook). This weekend, I succeeded—with Genius recipes. Marian Burros's Plum Torte, Canal House's Marinated Zucchini, and Melissa Clark's Spiced Braised Lentils and Tomatoes with Toasted Coconut. —Ali

I took a quick weekend jaunt! I wish it was to Paris as this Métro entrance might suggest, but it was in fact to Toledo, Ohio. This artwork is found on the grounds of the Toledo Museum of Art. —Lindsay-Jean

No toads were harmed in the taking of this small photo by Sarah's dad

 
My dad sent me this dispatch from Baltimore, Maryland, where he found a toad hiding away on the grill. Don't worry, the toad did not turn into dinner. —Sarah

The reason why you should always get to country weddings just a little bit early. —Kenzi

Crook's Corner Green Peach Salad made with White and Yellow Nectarines: https://instagram.com/p/6InJlpGB3L/?taken-by=howmothercooks<br /><br />More dill pickles - I've now made about 24 pints over the past 3 weeks, while Kirby cucumbers are at their best. That should do it for our home consumption until next summer. I'll probably make another batch (5 pints) to give as gifts. I also made a second quart of "Olive Oil Pickles" from the "The Joy of Pickling" - same principle as Giardiniera, but made with cucumbers salted first with thinly sliced shallots. <br /><br />All while listening to baseball on the radio. I'm glad I have two good friends who are Cubs fans; otherwise the bloodbath that played itself out at Wrigley Field from Thursday through Sunday would be even more difficult to bear . . . . ;o)
