Good good links #198

How do you feel about traditions? I like them. A lot. The positive predictability of something good happening again. Yes, it might be my need for control and safety but as long as there’s still enough variety and spontaneity in one’s life, I don’t see a problem in this. What a weird intro? Well, this post is a prime example of traditions: I’ve been sharing these posts for almost 200 weeks now [yikes!] and in while predictable, each one is different regarding the mix of links. I think I found a good variety of posts from around the web again and if I mssed any must-reads: let me know in the comments. And for now:

Happy Sunday!

Good good [food]

Loaded Cauliflower Casserole (vegan) via The Awesome Green

If you know me but at all, you’ll immediately see why it’s up my alley: cauliflower, chickpeas, kale, creaminess …mmh.

An older one but it’s the season and even though I’ve never had a Thanksgiving meal, this looks really really good.

 

Happiness-inducing today: In being honest with you here: today wasn’t the most amazing day. Not terrible but not special in any way. Writing this, though, I forced myself to focus on good things and: the great dossier I read this morning. And the fact I ran my parents’ errands because they’re out of town.

And one happiness-inducer from a blogger a know a lot of us admire. So very wonderful.

    LOVE that article about career and identity! I think I need to write it on my arm in permanent marker because it’s definitely something I’ve been struggling with lately. And that casserole from OSG looks so tasty–I saw it on her IG the other day and really want to make it!
