Two years ago, my MIL gave me a planter of herbs once we moved into our house. This was just the beginning of learning about the awesome-ness of using something from our yard in our food. Read the rest of this entry
Some days at school (usually the ones right before grades are due), my class will have a Ketchup and Mustard day. I stole the idea from a teacher I used to work with in NoVa.
