Sunday Stories

I have been reading so much the last couple of weeks that I didn't have time to actually write about some of my fave stories, so I'm playing a bit of catch-up this weekend. 

If you're like me and already planning your holiday celebrations, here are a few of the New York Times' most popular Thanksgiving recipes (I have already clipped the recipes for the Glazed Parsley Carrots and Whole Roasted Cauliflower with Almond-Herb Sauce - yum!)

Yeah - I have witnessed many of these bad behaviors on airplanes.

"I would walk 500 miles."  Which airports have the longest walk between gates and terminals? WSJ gives you scoop on the longest hikes, although as a frequent American Airlines flier, I'm puzzled how the Charlotte airport escaped this list. 

Tips on getting a good night's sleep when on the road.  As long as I'm traveling domestically, as long as I stick to my home (Eastern Time) schedule, I generally do just fine.

A excellent primer on "The Art of Condolence" offers do's and don'ts on how to express sympathy to someone who is in grief.  One tip: everyone experiences grief differently, so saying you understand how the other person feels is NOT helpful. 

Fascinating look at a private Greenwich Village garden and the historic townhouses that enclose it.  This exclusive community reportedly served as inspiration for Alfred Hitchcock's set of "Rear Window."

Finally, if you're making a big batch of homemade soup on this chilly weekend, these tips for freezing soup from The Kitchn will come in handy. 

Have a lovely week!
