adocado links

Nothing but links so I don't forget them.

A couple of avocado hummus recipes as I wait for my avocados to ripen.
a cozy kitchen blog
the lovely cupboard blog

No knead bread in a crockpot???
Mind blown. Will report back.

Recommendations for sex ed books from an Ask Metafilter thread:
1. Girl's Guide to Becoming a Teen by the American Medical Association talks about sex in a matter-of-fact way and also mentions that neither party should feel pressured to do anything they don't feel ready for. It talks about birth control and STDs. It has two paragraphs about masturbation for girls which is way more than the average when it comes to these types of books. 

2. It's Perfectly Normal by Robie Harris. It's a little more text heavy but totally readable by someone her age. It also talks bluntly about having safe sex in a positive light. And, it also has diagrams of both male and female sex organs so it's not as much of a mystery. [I've read this one and it's good.]


And as a follow up, here's Catherine Newman writing about her kids talking about what words really mean and questioning categories in a delightful way.

I made the sesame noodles and added steamed asparagus. It was very garlicky, very good, went over well at potluck.
