Weekend 5 – Aug 2/13


I’m starting a new category idea here today. Sue, from SuzeMuse.com got me thinking when she recently started her 5 Things To Think About posts, so in that spirit, every Friday I will post a list of 5 things I want to putter around in my kitchen making on weekends when it costs us less money in hydro to run the stove and several small appliances.

Digression: We are trying to consume less of everything these days: less food, less store bought goods, less gas, etc., but specifically less in resources like water and electricity. Matt Damon is onto something with his clean Water.org campaign, by the way. 🙂

Okay, back to the topic at hand!

Here’s my first list. Are you in? Get into it!

What are all of you making this weekend? Will you try anything from my Weekend 5 list? Let me know in the comments. I would love to hear about your kitchen adventures. Perhaps some of your ideas can make it to one of my future lists. That would be fun!
