Batch of links

- The Engineer brought these gorgeous bell peppers home the other day and I just had to share. They are called Aloha peppers and I just love them! 

- I love the idea of s’mores, but hate when the chocolate isn’t melty. Which is why I’m delighted by Stuffed Puffs, marshmallows that are stuffed with melty chocolate. They look great for microwave s’mores, too! 

- The latest issue of Bon Appétit had a great article about food waste. On a side note, I am getting more and more serious about trying home composting. (The city of San Antonio actually started a food waste collection program, but we live just outside city limits, in a place where they don’t even recycle glass anymore, so I don’t see it extending here anytime soon.) 

- There’s a new online retailer of Asian groceries called Umamicart! They don’t deliver everywhere just yet, but are still expanding. 

 - You know how sometimes, you buy a new-to-you condiment thinking that you’re going to use it on everything and it’s going to change your life, but then you just don’t use it? You’re not alone. 

- There’s a reason why women often get cold faster than men in air-conditioned office buildings. 

- Did you know that 4th graders can get an annual family pass to all national parks – for free? See here for details. I hope this is still active when the Little Prince is in 4th grade! You could hit all 47 continental national parks in one epic road trip (the article was written before the pandemic, though).
