Salad Spinning, Water Saving September 8, 2008

I’ve been trying to conserve water and I’ve set up a water bin outside. One of the things that I do is take the water from my salad spinner and put it in there. It’s AMAZING how much water you “waste” when you simply put it down the drain.

Need more convincing? You can feel like a poor man’s (or woman’s) Jamie Oliver when you’re spinnin’ salad in the great outdoors. Of course, where he has a beautiful English garden with fantastic stone walls and stoves, I have some big, plastic Home Depot containers with some pathetic tomatoes in them and a plastic lawn chair. But that’s beside the point. You can be outdoors, sloppy and save water! And your salad greens will be squeeky clean to boot.

Right! (my best John Cleese)

Just some background: Bears is the alter-ego of a very silly couple. Randy Bowes and Charlotte Markward become Randbear and Charbear and go about SMASHING things. Cuz that’s what bears do. That and eat locally.

This little ditty is about our travels and experiences trying to keep our food and dollars as local as possible. Oh, the towering highs! Oh the stunning lows! The soft, creamy middles! And the moldy parts that you left under your plate! All are covered here. You will not be amused. I gar-on-tee it!
