Sustainable Saturday - The Big Shoe Down - No Shoes Allowed!


As the Holiday Season is quickly approaching and we are in the midst of planning our Annual Holiday gathering with friends, this article reminded me of something we have said that we will someday implement around here.  Several Christmas' ago I even purchased slippers in a variety of sizes on clearance after the holidays to in fact implement this very thing.  As with many things in our lives . . . we are still in the process of Getting to Green.  I vowed last year to implement this as part of my New Year's Resolutions and I am thinking our Annual Holiday gathering will be the perfect time.  Some may think we're strange, but this is an important component in our quest to provide the healthiest environment for our kids . . . good indoor air quality and a home free of as many toxins and pesticides as possible  . . . . I hope we can inspire you to be a little more Green.

Excerpt from The Big Shoe Down:

I love the environment as much as the next greenie; I'd just rather you leave it at the door. In other words, please lose the shoes before you cross my threshold. This policy elicits strong passions, both for and against. With holiday parties fast approaching, I decided to get to the bottom of the Great Shoe Debate.

The practice got its 15 minutes of fame in 2003, thanks to a memorable Sex & the City episode that, unfortunately, gave shoe-shucking a bad name. In order to enter the inner sanctum of a friend's baby shower, a horrified Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) is ordered to add her Manolo Blahniks to a pile by the door. On the way out, she discovers her pricey footwear is missing, forcing her to head home in a ratty loaner pair of sneakers.

BTK -- Before the Kid -- my foot fetish only kicked in after the cleaning person did her magic, leaving us with a "go-ahead-and-eat-off-me" floor. On those occasions, I'd stop the DH at the door with an urgent "Take off your shoes!" Eventually, he got the hang of it.

But children really do change everything. Once I had a smiling, sweet-smelling babe scooting around on our wood floors, the thought of all the disgusting, uninvited debris visitors were tracking in made my skin crawl. Suddenly I was a lioness, willing to brave undarned socks and smelly feet -- not to mention nasty looks -- to protect my cub. Matthew's thumb-sucking only added to my anxiety. (On the other hand, some experts now say it's not a bad thing for kids to eat dirt -- that it might help build their immunities. I will try to remember this research when we're taking a second mortgage to cover his braces.) And so I embraced the shoes-off policy.

Sustainable Saturday - Gardening with Children: A Series Documenting our Garden 2010 - Making Your Garden Last


As Fall is now here, I wanted to share my first attempt canning from several weeks ago.  This past week we actually ended up eating what we canned! 


Unfortunately even with a basket full of tomatoes, I ended up with only two small jars of San Marzano Tomato Sauce.  We ended up eating it over Spaghetti Squash which was absolutely delicious! 


Preserving by Oded Schwart is the book that I referenced in my first canning adventure.  I borrowed the book from a friend and in addition the friend gave me two large shopping bags full of canning jars that she no longer needed.

I followed the following guidelines for canning tomato sauce:
  • I placed the tomatoes in boiling water for a few minutes to peel off the skins.
  • I peeled the tomatoes, cut into pieces and cooked down with onions, garlic and fresh spices.
  • Meanwhile, I boiled a large pot of boiling water and sterilized the jars, lids and seals.
  • Once the sauce was finished, I placed the sauce in the jars and sealed them.
  • Then, I once again placed the jars filled with sauce back into the large pot of boiling water to seal them for storage.
It is important to note that other than the canning jars themselves, I used no special canning equipment. I have two large stock pots which served as the place to cook the sauce and boil the jars.  I did find that the jars rattled at the bottom of the pot and would find it useful to have a metal rack for the bottom of the stockpot.

The heat processing process is time consuming, however I really wanted to experience the canning process this year for future reference. 


Spaghetti Squash Marinara with Italian Sausage and Garlic Bread


This recipe is super easy to make, the spaghetti squash roasts and peels from the skin VERY easily.  I did not use Italian Sausage in the version I made simply because I wanted to fully taste the homemade sauce that we had canned the week before.

October is Celiac Disease Awareness Month NEW Gluten-Free Coupons!


October is Celiac Awareness Month.  We have a good friend who has Celiac Disease or CD as it is sometimes called and we have learned about the disease through her.  As I have cooked meals for this friend, I have learned how challenging it can be to eliminate wheat, barley and rye from your diet.

Celiac Disease, according to the Celiac Sprue Association, effects approximately 1 in 133 people in the United States.  However, only 3% of these have been detected!  Celiac Disease is generally diagnosed with a simple blood test.  Currently the cure for celiac disease is to follow a lifelong gluten free diet.
