We are finally catching up on the last two weeks of NY Times Sunday papers. We save them until we can drink coffee, listen to music and read them. It's nice to have a few highlighted stories to check out each week, so I'm sharing a few things that I read the last week.

There is a country that has completely banned plastic bags and they are winning the battles. Read here to find out more.

Global Citizen just shared the two things you can cut back on to help make the biggest impact on food waste. Can you guess what they are? Find out here.

When planning your 2018 adventures, check out the five least visited National Parks.  We have been revisiting this list and figuring out how to sneak in at least one or two.

Both of us follow Pumpkin the Raccoon on Instagram and have changed our mind on Raccoons in general. I saw this article on the Huff Post good news and it made my day.

We are working on our Europe guides from our trips through the Alps. I came across this post of 22 photos that will make you want to visit Austria. 

Last, but not least, here is the best recipe we made last week. Brussels Sprouts are such a good vegetable when prepared correctly and mixed with the right things. If you're working on a meatless Monday or just trying to incorporate more veg recipes - this is a winner.

Congrats on making it halfway through your week.
