Weekly Roundup: Crisis Care, Free College Counseling, Easy Dinner Recipe

My kids are still in school (less than two weeks left!), so I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed with all that's going on - and I'm looking forward to the slower pace of summer vacation. If you're already in that groove, I envy you! Meanwhile, I skipped last week's roundup because of the holiday (and busy-ness of life), but it's back this week! (I've marked affiliate/referral links with a *, which means I may make a little bit of money if you make a purchase or sign up using that link - thank you!):

How to get help if you or someone you know needs help for a mental health, substance-use or suicidal crisis.

In case anyone is curious about the effect of the U.S. Supreme Court's decisions that struck down affirmative action, Inside Higher Ed has an article about the resulting essay question that asks students how race has affected their lives.

If you know a high-achieving, low-income high school junior (i.e., rising senior), they can apply for free college counseling from The Matchlighters Scholars Program. (They can use volunteer counselors too!)

This week's easy dinner recipe is Salt & Lavender's Marry Me Chicken, which was super good and going into our regular rotation. I doubled the recipe because my teenager ate a full recipe pretty much by himself (which I knew he would).

The Kitchn picked Smitten Kitchen's Blueberry Muffins as the best recipe, and while I haven't tried the other recipes, I've been making SK's muffins for about 10 years and they're delicious.

The Kitchn also breaks down the different cuts of pork, which is helpful if you need/want to make a substitution.

Please let me know if there's something you'd like to see in the roundup. And don't forget to sign up for my monthly email newsletter!
