Smitten Kitchen and Epicurious are my very favorites and the most aggressive distraction of my day. Please note, Epicurious has a new menu and shopping list every week so that’s like free time as well! Remember way back in the day when we had to buy cookbooks?
Kashi is offering a new frozen entre for the great price of FREE. Sign up here and you’ll get a coupon for one by good old fashioned US Mail which means we’re keeping those guys in business as well.
I love Timothy Keller’s book, The Reason for God, and feel it’s one of the great apologetics resources out there. If, however, you don’t want to spend $25 and don’t have time to read a big and intellectually weighty tome, you can listen to a couple of his messages on his web site. My favorite is called Exlusivity. Seriously, if you or someone you know has doubts about faith in Jesus, this is a fantastic – and free – resource.
Also, I’m a little late to the Beth Moore fan club, but I have definitely arrived. And I especially love that her web site has a quick 2-minute teaching every day. It’s a good way to start the morning.
Actual free stuff:
Freecycle is a nonprofit organization that enables communities to set up networks where they can give and get good stuff that people are no longer using. Navigating the site is tricky business, but I’ve heard good things about the results.
I’m really enjoying Deezer. It’s a lot like Pandora, but it lets you pick your whole playlist instead of just making a radio station. For some, that takes the mystery out of the whole game, for me it’s a lot less annoying.
Oh, goodness…this song and this little video makes me super happy. A) Love Brandi Carlile’s voice because can you say passion? B) Are those guys twins? C) Gotta love a happy audience. D) “Because even when I was flat broke, you made me feel like a million bucks”…nice.
Okay, Tori’s home for the weekend and I’m taking all my daughters to a not-very-free (but priceless!) breakfast in Sunriver. Except for Tess because she has a volleyball tournament and pretty much ruined the “all the daughters” concept, but that’s a story for another day.
