Monday Morning Coffee Break

Coffee Break


Good morning chickens!  Hope everyone’s weekend was spectacular.  Did anyone catch the Emmy’s?  Or, more importantly, the second to last episode of Breaking Bad?  I’m starting to get really emotional at the idea that it’s ending…I just don’t want to let go.  Boo hoo.

I spent the weekend holed up with a nasty cold, so the couch, a blanket, and the Internet were my main companions.  Here’s a few interesting tidbits I found for you:


The Kitchn featured some great from the pantry recipes for busy weeknight dinners.  These will come in handy.

In the art world, an unknown Van Gogh has just been discovered.

In other art-related news, photographer Jordan Matter has done a series of ballet dancers applying their craft to everyday tasks.  The resulting photos are breathtaking.

These teachers on Buzzfeed deserve a raise.

Adrianna at A Cozy Kitchen made a gorgeous peach and pistachio galette as a goodbye to the summer months.

And finally, feeling at a loss for inspiration on an idea?  Go here.
