What we’re eating and reading this week:

Dinner Party in a Box! (Above) My favorite meal-delivery service, Martha & Marley Spoon is now offering a three-course “fiesta box” to feed four ($78) or eight ($148). Just like their regular dinner kits, these take the front-end stress out of the equation by sending you all your fresh pre-measured ingredients and simple, clear instructions. And the line-up is delicious: Chipotle Shrimp Tortilla Soup, Chile-Spiced Tacos with Corn, Bean, and Poblanos, and for dessert, Mexican Hot Chocolate Cookies with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Filling, maybe the most insane cookies I’ve ever eaten. The fiesta box is only available until May 12.

This cookbook makes me so pumped for the spring and summer farmer’s market.
Great art isn’t always made by good people, i.e. the conversation I seem to be having at every dinner table.

My new favorite lunch is Maya Kaimal’s Everyday Dal topped with plain yogurt and a few almond slices. It’s ready in under 5 minutes.
 .
Is anyone more excited than me for The Incredibles 2? I don’t think so.

LOL.

Read of the week: The Legacy of Childhood Trauma (this is a rough one)
 .

Listen of the week: Fired Over an Instagram Post.

My cousin had a baby! It reminded me of this book post from the archives. (And naturally, we bought her almost everything on the list.)
 .
Lastly, thank you to everyone who has submitted stories and rituals for our Treasury project. We are overwhelmed by the generosity, creativity and humor of this community and were so happy that the idea seemed to have resonated. (To those who haven’t submitted yet, worry not: It is an ongoing project, so there is no deadline for submitting.) If we haven’t gotten back to you yet, we will very soon. THANK YOU.
 .
Have a great weekend.
