This One I Believe - Fun Fact

Woohoo, day 4. Yesterday, we hit Barnes and Wegmans. Lots of reading and writing at the cafe' and at Wegmans, I got new freezer-safe glass jars to replace ALLLLLLL the little plastic containers that I tossed, on Day 2.

I love being free of those containers because one, I stopped using them and two, I have a firm rule in my kitchen.

Use it or lose it.

I'm outside again. Sunny, muggy, windy and wonderful. That's all from me. Enjoy your day and eat yummy things.

PS: This Fun Fact, I do believe.

  2. I do that too, problem for me is I put it aside for the garage sale and then don't hold the garage sale.

  3. I like your kitchen rule we need to do that for my whole house, except my husband hates tossing things so it is not that easy. Neat fact.

    1. Mine can too. But lately, I've been seeing my nose and I wondered? Where was it before?

  5. Is Barnes the bookshop like Borders used to be? If so I envy you hugely as we lost all our Borders Bookshops several years ago. Nothing like books, magazines and coffee together,

    1. Yes, just like that. We used to hit Borders all the time, too. Sad that they went out of business.

      Do you have local used bookshoppes near you?

    2. Do you mean second hand bookshops? We do have those, not very many, but the charity shops have loads of second hand books, mostly in very good condition.
      We have a couple of real bookshops, which have cafes attached but very few magazines, not like Borders used to have. I hope these bookshops survive.

    4. I call them used bookstores, but second-hand, works too. Both mean the same thing :-)

      Good to hear that you've got a few places to pick up deals on books.

  6. I think getting rid of all plastic and using all glass containers, especially with your food problems is the way to go. I use all as much glass as I can.

    1. Hey Parsnip. I've always used primarily glass. I love that it goes in the freezer, oven and on the counter. Great stuff.

      But I still had some teeny tiny plastic that I stopped using ages ago. So I tossed the fuckers out, and got myself some fantastic new jars.

      Heaven.

      How goes the pups, today?

  12. WHAT you tossed the plastic containers... It could have been a really nice prize for one of your question post... as long you had put a warning: "Use at own risk!" :))

    1. They were food grade but yeah, at your own risk, for sure.
