Happy Saturday folks! I thought I’d share with you some stuff I found around the interwebs this week, so here goes:
Reviving a Prehistoric Flower – 30,000 year old seeds from an ice-age squirrel burrow? Sweet! And it’s a nice looking plant too!
The Huge Footprint of Farmed Shrimp – I stress “farmed” shrimp here, even though the titles of most other posts on the internet do not. I try to know the origin of all my seafood anyway, so hopefully I’m already avoiding this. Just know if you’re eating shrimp at a fast food joint, it’s almost invariably coming from one of these places.
More Evidence that Factory Farming is Killing Us – How many more superbugs are they going to have to find on factory farms before they stop pumping antibiotics into all the livestock? I have a great fear that this is where our next global pandemic is going to come from.
and one more happy link to balance this all out…
LEGO Buys $500M worth of Wind Turbines – Go LEGO! One of my favorite toys of all time just got greener!
And now for the menu plan:
Lunch: BBQ (from the freezer) sandwiches and chips
Dinner: Daughter’s off with Grandma, and it’s poker night for the boys, so I’ll just raid leftovers.
Lunch/Dinner: Family get-together today, so lunch and dinner will probably come from the pot-luck.
Lunches during the week: Chili, homemade bread, crackers
Monday: Pecan crusted tilapia, scalloped potatoes, and veggie
Tuesday: Szechuan pork stir-fry from the latest Cook’s Illustrated with green beans
Wednesday: Knit Night, leftovers
Thursday: Pan seared chicken breast, peas with garlic and shallots, homemade stuffing mix
Friday: Leftovers, or possibly date night
Hooray, I actually made a menu plan, twice even! Let’s see if I can keep this running…
