Links of Interest: Vegetarian OAMC, Bottle Top Trivet, 50’s Bachelorette Party, WWII Propaganda
Mom used her new GO! cutter to help replicate a cute little trivet she found at an antique shop. The trivet has been in the house for years- it is made from fabric-covered bottle tops. Mom was eager to use her 3″ fabric scraps but the original trivet is made from polyester clothing. Very “green!” Surely you have scraps to make your own, but if you are at a loss for bottle tops your college-student/server/bartender friend can surely help.
I was on Facebook this week and discovered that my cousin Jody made 31 meals (!) to put in her freezer. I have made double batches or lasagna on occasion, but never planned that far ahead! This link has a meal plan to make enough food to serve 10 vegetarians for a whole month! While that is far beyond my needs I am interested in trying a few of the recipes. Because I only cook for myself I think I would fully cook 3 casseroles or batches of soups and then freeze them in individual portions. That way I can toss them in my lunch box.
“E” went to a 50’s Housewife-themed bachelorette party. Not. Even. Kidding. Check out this link for the invites, the decorations, the food and more.
It is no secret that I love, love, love, WWII homefront propaganda. Kristen from The Frugal Girl linked to this slideshow at the Smithsonian and I love it! Every Friday Kristen posts a picture of the food that she is throwing away that week as an incentive to reduce food waste. I think these WWI & II ideas need to come back in vogue.
