I have been busy working on some new stuff this past week. We always seem to get out of the habbit of being less wasteful. Nothing big, but we need to get back on track. I made some more cloth napkins this week. We also finished out last roll of paper towels, so it is back to using cloth towels. Sometimes you really do need paper towels though, especially when it comes to food. For instance, patting a whole chicken dry with a cloth towel always leaves fuzzies. The bad thing is, if we have the paper towels we will use them for everything. Kind of an all or nothing type deal. I am going to try and go without them again and see how it works. I have also been wanting to replace ziploc baggies for awhile now. I always reuse them, and recycle them when they are too worn out, but I wanted something that I could send to school with my son that wouldn't get thrown out. Since most of our containers are glass, I decided to make some reusable snack bags.
website by next week!
3 meals from one chicken.
Our grocery bill has been a bit out of control the last month or so. Still trying to get back on track with that as well. One thing I am working on is serving more whole grain, dry bean, and potato side dishes as well as a veggies side dish with every meal. This seems to help stretch meals. Always more things to try and areas to improve I guess! Hope you enjoy the new page!
