Weekly Roundup: Nagi's New Cookbook, New Kind of Laundry Detergent, Helpful Tips

Oops! I forgot to post yesterday, in my excitement to have my son home from his first year of college! College summer vacation being longer than high school summer vacation, I get to have him for a whole three months before he heads back to school. I hope your summer is off to a great start too!  (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!):

My favorite food blogger, Nagi Maehashi of RecipeTin Eats, has a new cookbook coming out in October! You can preorder Tonight* for $35 right now - I did, because I want to support Nagi, but also because I regularly make her recipes and I'm super excited that the new book is full of fast and easy recipes (as opposed to her first cookbook, Dinner,* which runs the gamut from fast and easy to long and complicated). 

As I mentioned, my son is home from college ... along with all of his stuff. One of the things he brought home is laundry detergent, which reminded me I've never mentioned it before. I'd never heard of laundry detergent sheets until I was reading advice on what to take to college - they were recommended in lieu of liquid detergent or pods. I'm happy to report that they worked well for my son. We tried Earth Breeze,* which seems to be the most popular brand, but ended up preferring CLEARALIF* due to cost and packaging.

Tips for managing intrusive thoughts.

One of my kids accidentally bought an Audible book on Amazon, so I got to show him how to request a refund and thought I'd share the info in case it's helpful. I've done it myself for Kindle books I've accidentally purchased. As long as you haven't downloaded/started the books, just go to your digital orders* page to find the order number, then use the chat function to get request a refund (go the help page,* click "something else," then "I need more help").
