bringing my lunch for most of August

August 5th, 2008 at 12:49 pm

I reserve the right to have sushi on occasion with the coworkers. Seriously, since August I have brought my hipster-ironic 1940s "modern living" lunch kit with me, and remembered to pack a lunch. I hope this will help prevent food from spoiling and help us save some money.

I also suspended our CSA for four weeks while we eat our way through our garden. So far we've eaten only the parsley, basil and the lettuce.

I can't do much to make a sizable difference in my water bill. I will try one method of body cleaning that apparently saves 90% of water.

I was going to bake bread this weekend -- opted for rolls instead, and oh boy, the difference lukewarm water and the Kitchen-Aid dough hook make! These were the best rolls I'd ever made, and I'd used the recipe 30 times. Very fluffy on the inside, wee bit o' crust on the outside.

    My husband has decided to give a gluten-free diet a try to ease his skin troubles. I'm thinking about baking our own goods from now on. The necessary supplies are a tad expensive at whole foods.

    He also has been using a more natural form of deoderant which does not protect as well. We were discussing the issue and I reminded him that deoderant and showering daily, while lovely and hygienic, were not always necessary. Just interesting to think about the history of coming to need a shower a day, among other things.
