Stop By The Salad Bar To Get Just The Ingredients You Need For Soup For One

Grocery salad bars aren’t the best or cheapest options for fresh produce, but if you’re shopping or cooking for one, they can be a windfall. Stop by and grab just the ingredients you need for soups or other dishes, with no fear of overbuying, no leftovers and little pre-cooking prep needed.

Counterpoint: Buying A 'Healthy' Happy Meal Is Bad Parenting

Are Australian restaurants training children to eat bad food? That’s the question posed in a recent ABC News report which took Aussie food eateries to task for failing to provide healthy options for kids. While most restaurants sell diet-friendly options for adults, the children’ menu is usually filled with nothing but fried food such as chips and chicken nuggets. Many nutritionists think this could be contributing to Australia’s growing problem with youth obesity.

Now, for the most part I agree wholeheartedly with this argument. Children should absolutely be given healthy food choices when dining out. But there’s one place where the introduction of ‘healthy eating’ is a bridge too far. We’re talking, of course, about McDonald’s. In short: if you make your kids eat sliced apples instead of fries you are pure evil.

I was momentarily proud of myself the year I grew peas: I tended them for weeks, harvested a big basket full of pods, sat down to shell them…and only ended up with enough for a small side dish. As much as I loved the peas, that was a lot of work for very little payoff.

Paint Small And Intricate Spaces With A Sponge

The next time you’re painting chair spindles or the banister of your stairs, ditch the paintbrush and grab a sponge. Country Chic Paint (CCP) says sponges are easier in small, uneven and intricate spaces.

Keep A Plastic Sandwich Bag On Your Hand While Cutting Chillies

If you cook with hot chillies often, you know that plastic gloves help keep your fingers from burning for hours afterwards. If you don’t have gloves, a plastic bag will do the trick instead.
