Friday Finds: 5.24.19

Posted May 24, 2019 by Stephanie

It’s the last Friday in May! No, wait, I just checked the calendar, it’s the second last Friday in May. Regardless, the weather has decided that it is summer and the days are hot and long – not a bad thing but also just a touch worrying with all the global heat-up that has been going on. Anyway, what have you guys been up to lately? I’ve been working a bunch, as well as lurking around on the internet. I”m looking forward to maybe watching the new Aladdin? I’m not sure if we’re going to catch it in theaters but I kind of want to but kind of don’t want to? I’ve also been watching various Youtube videos of all the BTS rage. I’m not ARMY (that’s what BTS fans call themselves) because they seem too hardcore for me, but it think it’s super interesting how they’re everywhere these days and I kinda like their music. Anyway, here are a bunch of articles I’ve read lately. This weekend I’m planning on making some soufflé pancakes – wish me luck! I hope they turn out fluffy ;)


  1. Wholesome internet friends.
  2. I would definitely give this a try but I don’t know about strawless bubble tea.
  3. I’ve watched a couple episodes of Netflix’s Street Food and I like them! This one was particularly good.
  4. This is an insane story.
  5. Why?! Something needs to be done about the rotting fish sauce on the East coast of Canada.
  6. I know it’s trashy, but I love Buzzfeed listacles. This one of summer reads has me excited to get some new books.
  7. Apparently if you love La Croix, you’ll LOVE Spindrift.
  8. I’m not Gen Z but I passionately love closed captioning.
  9. We’re on the verge of the Age of the Slacker.
  10. Ultra-processed foods are even more bad for you than you thought they were.
  11. There’s CBD everything these days – can it really do everything?
  12. Move over soy, peas are here to push their way onto the plant based protein scene.
  13. LOL. AirPods still going strong.

Link Love:

  1. These lil potato dumplings are right up my alley.
  2. Crispy potatoes with garlicky yogurt and pickled red onions? Sign me up!
  3. Oh hello Instant Pot smoked gouda mac and cheese.

I’ve got my eyes on you:

  1. I kinda really want a Cricut so I can do custom t-shirt’s. Does anyone have one? Do you love it?
  2. Thinking of trying out this face sunscreen this face sunscreen because I just ran out. It looks promising. I hate greasy sunscreen face so I figure oil free is the way to go.
  3. This book has been getting a lot of buzz – it’s on my want to read shelf.

Lately on I am a Food Blog:

  1. We’ve been eating jia jiang mian noodle bowls all week long.
  2. I love lemon-y zoodles!
  3. Make this sauce and put it on everything, especially if you’re grilling this weekend.
  4. Chocolate chip cookies for the win.
  5. I miss Japan.
  6. Orange chicken is my friend.

That’s it! Happy Memorial Day weekend friends!

    Memorial day is a day to honor servicemen and women who died in combat. There is nothing happy about this solemn day.

      Chillax lady, we can all honor our servicemen and women in different ways. I choose to do this with delicious food and friends.
