Friday Links: 1.9.15

Posted January 9, 2015 by Stephanie
friday links -

I LOVE balls. Especially cute lil sushi balls. These guys can be found in the basement of any major department store in Tokyo and let me tell you, I’ve been eating more than my fair share. I think in the sushi world, they’re probably the easiest thing to make so I’m definitely going to have to give them a go soon. But for now, I’m just going to be buying them and eating them at an alarming rate. The more sushi balls I eat the rounder I get…

This is what I’ve been checking out, aside from balls (hee hee!).


1. This is completely fascinating. It scares and thrills.
2. What is up with viral internet things? This almost scares me even more than the plant based meat.
3. Do you use apps to track yourself?
4. In line with the two above links, this book is crazy. It’s kind reminiscent of Brave New World andĀ 1984, but even more absurd and frightening because it just might be the tiniest bit plausible.
5. Okay, on to cute things: how adorable are Jimmy Fallon and Nicole Kidman?!
6. This 2014 mix of pop music.
7. Word on the street is that sriracha isn’t cool anymore, but I don’t care, I still love it.

Link Love:

1. EEP! A Coco Cake Book!!
2. This ginger miso soba!
3. Chicken noodle soup with ALL the noodles please.
4. This sandwich is everything ever.
5. How beautiful is thisĀ Korean army stew?!
6. Cookie cravings.
7. I really like Kylie’s new year intentions.

Happy weekend friends! Hope everyone’s staying cosy!
love & potatoes,
xoxo Steph


  1. I love that video of Nicole Kidman and Jimmy Fallon! They’re so adorable. Also, speaking of adorable: SUSHI BALLS! Those look like my dream come true.

  2. those sushi balls are just too darn cute. thanks for the link love!!! xoxo

    omg those sushi balls look delicious! + are super cute

    Wow that plant near article, I’m actually really impressed. Regardless of the fact that it’s all natural, I’d be interested in the long term effects of it as one of the other commenters pointed out. I also really wanna try it when it comes out! Or try the chicken one now!!

    That book seems really interesting. I loved brave new world (1984 not so much haha) so I may try it out!

  4. Admittedly I was a little scared to hover over that first balls link to see where you were headed, but I should have known better. (Me <– gutterbrain!) I love balls too! And sushi balls might be the ballsiest of balls! Or maybe they just make me balls hungry. Balls balls balls! Speaking of…round things, The Circle is totally on my list even though it freaks me the frick out. Think I'll just get through this three-foot stack of how not to kill your baby books first before I move onto such thrilling material. :) Happy weekend, Stephanie!

  5. Brian says:

    Thanks for sharing that book, The Circle. I didn’t know Dave Eggers had anything new out, but now I’m excited to get it!

  6. Love the links Stephanie! Wishing you a happy weekend!

  7. I love sushi balls too – I love to make them at home because it’s so easy to tuck the fish / avo / spicy mayo etc. inside and then they’re portable. (recipe on my blog if you’re interested)

    Love that Nicole Kidman and Jimmy Fallon bit + that Spicy Sweet Potato Chip Sammie, yes please!

  8. Those cookies are crazy amazing.

  9. Alana says:

    Ok, so I have never had sushi balls. I’m so embarrassed!! I’m dying over the Jimmy + Nicole vid. SO cute. So so so cute!! Also, that SANDWICH!! Amazing!!

  10. Alyssa says:

    sriracha forever!

    The new Yorker article was interesting… we live in an infotainment society it seems…

    I like the Siriracha bit too… they almost got put out of business (or would have had to move) due to the smell… lucky for us they reached a compromise with neighborhood:-)

  12. Lindsey says:

    thanks for the sandwich-love, girl! xo! have a great week <3

  13. Adriana says:

    This just looks absolutely great! I am a huge sushi fan, and I am definitely going to attempt to make these!
