Meat free Mondays...we are leaning into it

Our house is slowly leaning into 'Meat free Mondays'.  I have felt I wanted to give it a try after quite a few things I have read and watched lately(inparticular 'Food Inc' the movie).

We are leaning in as 1.  Man-of-the-house loves meat and 2.  All my best recipes are meat based.  

So on Monday night we compromised by having vege burgers with home made wedges, and man-of-the-house got free range bacon on his as well. So...its happening slowly.  If anything it has also made me aware that I can really vote with my wallet, and encourage companies to make small changes.  eg.  One of our major ham produces now sells free range bacon.

Here's to trying something new!

Its been raining...I have succumbed to the dryer

Its been raining a lot around here, and this is not our wet season.  And as much as I try to avoid using it (mainly due to the fact that half our house steams up) I have been using the dryer on a pretty regular basis.

I have read up about using dryer balls to increase your dyer efficiency and was going to go out and buy some big plastic ones, until by total chance I spotted these little cuties:

Tumblemonkeys, they are made from wool felt and are so gorgeous I want to use them in every cycle.  Plus...just looking at them makes me smile!
