Happy Friday: 10 Links Worth Clicking, 2nd Week of Lent Edition


It’s been a much milder winter for us here in Denver than it has been for many, but now the cold temperatures and accumulating snow have finally come around. Weather permitting, my family and I are planning to visit with some extended family members this weekend. I’ve also got my sights on cooking something that will make the whole house smell good, like this pulled pork recipe — an all-time favorite. What are your plans for the weekend?
