Weekend linkage

A bag for loot. Just what we all need.

Some loot for that bag: pint glasses adorned with the heads of Luther, Calvin, Edwards, and Spurgeon. I've got to get my hands on these.

Thought-provoking discussion on the dangers of being "Gospel-centered." (Hint: you can become more obsessed with defining the facts of the Gospel than knowing the God of the Gospel. Guilty!)

Custom-made chocolate is always a good idea.

A UFO sighting? Why didn't I know about this when I was at Hillsdale?!!

Soundtrack for work . . . sometimes I'm dignified. Sometimes I'm not. Postscript: if you have never listened to Punch Brothers, get to it right heartily.


Extra recipe! Mostly so I don't forget it. :) Hacked from Pioneer Woman, this is something I made Thursday night for my pasta-loving husband. I want to try it tossed with roasted cauliflower and steamed peas, myself.

A Serious Alfredo Sauce
(a.k.a. "Let's See How Many Dairy Products We Can Whisk Together")

1/2 lb whole wheat fettuccini
1/2 lb mild turkey sausage
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup whole milk
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
1/2 cup grated Emmenthaler
2 ounces cream cheese
salt and pepper to taste

1) Bring large pot of water to boil for fettuccini and cook as directed; in small skillet, cook sausage as desired (I buy slice it into halved coins).
2) Meanwhile, melt butter in small saucepan. Whisk in milk and let warm through.
3) Add cheeses and whisk until melted; season to taste with salt and pepper.
4) Toss drained pasta, cooked sausage, and completed alfredo sauce together. Serve immediately.

  1. UFOs in Hillsdale??? If only we had known about this earlier, we could have organized a UFO hunting party instead of studying for finals!
