1. All I can think about lately is ice cream and waffle cones. Yesterday I bought David Lebovitz's The Perfect Scoop, and I couldn't be more excited about learning all of the new recipes. That man's an ice cream genius!
3. Yesterday we went to the mall and were afraid to get out of the car because there were a bunch of birds with really sharp beaks who seemed just a little too comfortable with the idea of killing after-Christmas shoppers.
4. If you haven't made Hugh and Cassie's David Chang brussels sprouts, you need to.
