So much bloggy stuff to read

My Google Reader right now is full of other people's good stuff.  Some recent examples:

The Common Room's Budgeting to Build Your Pantry:  what to do when your budget is really, really tight.  A note to the Deputy Headmistress:  strangely enough, even with Canadian prices, a 10-pound bag of PEI potatoes was $4 today at our local discount supermarket, compared to the US$5 where you live.  Usually our prices are higher than yours, not even counting the exchange; but maybe potatoes are just really cheap here right now. 500 ml of cheapest-brand cottage cheese was $2.59, and that would be a 16 oz. container, so that would put 24 oz. at roughly $3.89.  Just for comparison.

Ordo Amoris is reading through Charlotte Mason's School Education, starting here.

A Peaceful Day has a lovely post about Quality Mummy-Daughter Time.

CM, Children, and Lots of Grace has some fascinating stuff about Eve Anderson and Picture Study.

A Year of Slow Cooking posted a list of their Top 10 Slow Cooker Potluck Dishes.  (Plus photos.) I just bought Stephanie's second cookbook (I had a gift card), and I'm not sorry I did.  I was a little hesitant, based on a few negative Amazon reviews (e.g. "love the blog, like the first book, don't like this one so much"); but I really do like it.  It's the sort of book that will get used; in fact, I'm planning the next couple of week's menus around it, just to break it in.

Is that enough for some weekend reading?  Of course there are always the big fat newspapers...
