Inspiration for the weekend

Inspired by these blogs, I've decided to bring back my "Inspiration for the Weekend" tradition. One of my favorite things to do on weekend mornings is sit with a cup of coffee and read inspirational articles that I find on the blogs I follow, as well as Pinterest, Tumblr, and other websites. This ritual helps me to slow down after a crazy week of teaching, and makes me focus on what's important. There's so much out there to learn and absorb, so I want to begin sharing some of my favorites again. Here's what I've been reading, making, or doing this week.

52 lists. An awesome list-making/journaling project for 2014.

These easy, quick (and healthy!) banana peanut butter chocolate cookies.

A great way to use up cabbage: Curried cabbage in mild yogurt (I ate it with tofu and jasmine rice which was a perfect combination)
