What did we learn reading Texture this week? 1) The proper way to ghost. 2) Bowls, the dish, not the football event, are having a moment–with breakfast cuppas, poké lunches and deep dish dinners that will have even the pickiest eaters asking for more. 3) That Mother Jones has cracked the case of Wonderful Pistachios, which consumes more of the drought-stricken California’s water than any other family, farm, or company. 4) Where people go when they get bored in Ibiza. 5) What it takes to be more productive at work and in life.

We would love to hear what you learned and liked in Texture this weekend. Post it on our Facebook page here.
