Weekly Reading Notes is a weekly feature I've been thinking about trying.  I read a lot of amazing blogs every week and I want to share what I'm reading and the takeaways I have from each article.

25+Ways to Use Fruit Powders - I love the idea of adding powdered fruit to my yogurt to make some of the flavors I miss.  I got rid of flavored yogurt out of my life a long time ago because of the high sugar.  Fruit powder would be great to dry in the fruit season so I can use it all winter.

The future of fine dining? An exclusive biodome for you and your date - As an introvert, I'm all on board with this ideas, pandemic social distancing rules or not.  I'd love to eat outside in my own space like this, so much less noise, and it would limit eavesdropping.  Who wouldn't love a more intimate setting like this?
