Weekend linkage // 7QT #25

Linked up with Conversion Diary.

1)

"You are a silly cake pan."
-Jared's idea of Valentine wooing

Despite what I said last time about Ellie's lack of doctoring, she actually did get weighed and measured and the whole shebang this week. Forty-second percentile for weight, twenty-fourth for height. My wee mousie.

2)

This is an incredible Radiolab about a baby born at 23 weeks, 6 days.

3)

At The Atlantic: how orange juice was successfully misrepresented as a health drink.

4)

Here is Hillsdale prof Terrence Moore at the Kirby Center, speaking on the Common Core's calculated destruction of story and soul.

5)

Also in the socio-political vein, this is an interesting look at the Russian and American characters in international relations: "From Russia, With Spite" by Ralph Peters.

6)

After all that seriousness, Benedict Cumberbatch and The Count discuss apples and oranges on Sesame Street. You're welcome.

7)

What We Et For Dinner:
Oatmeal blender pancakes with blueberry sauce + scrambled eggs with bacon
Chicken vegetable curry + brown rice
Salmon cakes + spaghetti squash with olive oil and paprika + roasted balsamic broccoli
BBQ meatloaf + mashed potato pancakes + green salad 
Sausage and white beans with spinach + roast potatoes and carrots
Ranch roast chicken (from Much Ado About Chicken) + wild rice with pecans + poppyseed slaw (inspired by this one, but without almonds or apple and with the addition of peas and a smidge of honey)
Lasagna + green salad + mint chocolate gelato (this is what we're having tonight because though I'm scroogey about Valentine's Day I take every opportunity to make Special Food)
