The Pop Five

April 26, 2013


Dan’s been at an offsite work retreat here since Wednesday so I’ve been doing the solo mom thing for a few days. Whew, I don’t know how single mothers do it. Honestly, hats off to you! We plan on having a semi-relaxing weekend at home with Dan’s parents who arrive tonight. Have a lovely weekend!


I’ve been a Steve Martin fan forever, but listening to Born Standing Up one road trip years ago solidified his supreme talent for me. He’s collaborated with Edie Brickell on Love Has Come for You, which released on Tuesday.

I love anything Brian Stelter (can you believe he’s only 27?!) writes and was particularly impressed with last Sunday’s NYT Magazine cover story. It’s about the cut-throat realm of morning television news, which is interesting enough, but I thought the real story also lies with the discrepancy between Matt Lauer and Ann Curry’s salaries. That said, the review of Stelter’s book that the article is based, Top of the Morning is pretty scathing.

I made this quinoa lasagna and it is so good! It’s loaded with veggies, pretty simple to throw together and was great to have on hand to reheat throughout the week.


I finally read Julia Reed’s take on a Dixie playlist in the latest issue of Garden & Gun. Love this piece.
