We had our first dusting of snow this week in Des Moines, and while I was mildly disappointed that there hasn’t been more of it yet, I’m in no real rush to commit to a full-on relationship with my parka just yet. That doesn’t mean I can’t start enjoying some tiny doses of holiday spirit though… While I spend the weekend curled up with a book and some hot chocolate, here are my favorite bits of Internet from this past week:
The first thing I did when I heard it might snow was pull the recipe for this delicious vegetable soup.
How to brew (and drink) the perfect cup of coffee, according to science.
One of my long-time favorite authors, Dave Eggers, wrote a new short story for The New Yorker this week.
By now I’m more than a little obsessed with Serial and this Mental Floss story only has my brain spinning even more.
