An update from Sunday: The bread turned out terrific! Two nice loaves of Mom’s Italian! I am going to try and bake more bread now that I can make two kinds, Challah and Italian. It is really very simple but you need to make time to do it.
I did find some good things at the farmer’s market. But was not impressed with the yogurt. I like greek-style thicker yogurt and this was too watery for me. My next home experiment will be to try and make my own yogurt.
Today is laundry day, sunny and windy so it is the perfect day to wash and hang everything outside. Since April began, I have only used the dryer 2 times. My goal this summer is to hang as much laundry as possible. Some people may think it is ugly, an eyesore or time consuming. I say it is better for your wallet because you are using less electricity and your clothes don’t shrink, fade or lose elastic. Of course it is better for the environment for the same reasons. It is win-win.
For all of you that live somewhere where you can’t hang clothes outside, at least try to hang them inside see how it goes.
I find it very frustrating that while all these people are talking about recycling and changing out lightbulbs in our country there are places that have regulations in their communities and developments outlawing the clothesline.
