Thank you for all of the eggplant ideas! It was great, I didn't know what to pick. Finally the winners: I followed Mama Simmons idea to just broil it with olive oil, then saw Billie's baba ghanosh recipe, so I made broiled eggplant baba ghanosh. I added too much tahini, then yogurt, but it is a nice spread. Check out the ideas under the comments of my eggplant post. Billie and Michelle, send me your address, and I will send you some Amazing Grass Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein bars! Thanks everyone for your help!
The cabinets- I used tupperware and it looks soo much better. Great improvement. Thanks for the help on that too!
My mother in law was visiting last weekend and told me about a study she had read about autism and cleaning supplies (chemicals). I did some research and this is an old study but there have been some links. I'm thinking about dumping all my cleaning supplies and going out to get the green stuff. I think Trader Joe's has it - I'm sure whole foods does. If I'm eating organic and Nick is, then I suppose I should really be using organic/natural things around the house. What is your take on this? Do I swap the lysol for GREEN cleaner?
In college, we used to make a big pot of popcorn using oil on the stove, shaking it around, moving it around the burner. We don't have the kind of burner that it would work on, it would just scratch it - but I really wanted some popcorn on the stove all week so I tried it tonight. I think this popcorn was 10x worse than movie theatre popcorn because all of it didn't pop and it was saturated in oil. I have a popcorn machine like this - I'm guessing this is safe? I hear microwave popcorn releases chemicals. What is your popcorn solution?
you can see the oil on the papertowel. Yuck!
