When it comes to vegetables, which do you use more often- canned, frozen, or fresh?
We use fresh and frozen the most. We haven't bought canned veggies for our own consumption in a very long time. The theater department was doing a food drive this past semester and we bought canned veggies for that because they needed non-perishables.
Do you sew?
I can sew, but I haven't done it in eons. I have been spending a lot of time crocheting over the last several weeks.
Do you have a common fear, such as the fear of heights, spiders, snakes, small spaces, flying, etc?
|15 June 2009, Wharton, Texas|
I am claustrophobic and I am terrified to be in a car on a mountain, especially if I happen to be a passenger instead of the driver. I am not afraid of the height of a mountain. The views are absolutely beautiful. It is just the whole thought of the car being sent careening off the mountain that is a problem. I am not afraid of snakes; I photograph them. I am not afraid of spiders; I flatten 'em. I used to have my hubby put them outside, but then they started biting me, so game on.
Is there anything you recommend for cutting the grocery bill?
The most certain way is to stop eating, but I have no plans of doing that. Folks tell me that growing our own food would decrease the food bill. It certainly would give us more control over what we are consuming in the way of pesticides and other chemical crap. I am also told that cooking from scratch rather than depending so much on processed foods will also greatly reduce the food bill AND be healthier for us overall. I believe all of these things to be true and can't wait until I have a yard that will work for growing a garden.
Tell me about something that made you happy over the past week.
I finished two of the three books that I was reading and only have ten pages to go in the third one. YAYAY! Goodreads finally quit telling me that I was a book behind in my challenge. :)
