1- No more paper towels!
Emily over at The Daily Garnish gave me the idea to get rid of the paper towels. I used to use paper towels for everything. I did what Emily did and bought two small trash cans and two 8pk cheap washcloths. The total was $13 at Target. $2.99 for each trash can and $3.49 a piece for the wash cloths. Did I do the math right?
The bins go under my sink.
The left is clean and the right is dirty.
Every night I empty the dirty ones and throw them in the washer. I've been doing this for about a month and haven't run out of washcloths. I use them for everything. Wiping little faces, counters, floors... I actually like using them better than paper towels!
This book is wonderful. I can't wait until my husband gets home so we can cook from it. The recipes are amazing. The photography is amazing. The layout is amazing. It's a must read.
3- The Produce Box
I joined a CSA! It's such a cool experience! This week I got- strawberries, green onions, red leaf lettuce, arugula, tatsoi, and a big tomato.
4- Growing green onions
I had never tried this before so when I bought some onions for this recipe I just stuck the ends in some water.
These suckers grow FAST.
Like that is two days worth of new growth. Amazing.
