goals for The Year of Responsibility*

–less plastic. Like zero. If it’s something that ALWAYS comes in plastic, find it in bulk and refill that container. (workin’ on it. See The Plastic Project)

–make my own yogurt (CHECK! successful AND tasty!)

–try to find local milk for said yogurt

–eat local eggs only

–try to get away from packaging and waste in general. More bulk

–save back a certain percentage of income for emergency and regular savings

–donate a certain percentage of income to a different organization every other week

–join Amnesty International. Volunteer with local chapter

–volunteer at the animal shelter

–get involved with Sustainable Homer. On what level, I am unsure

–advertise, advertise, advertise TBTB and Skippeh Snacks (and Bigwoofs)

–make our own bread

–more to come!

*The Year of Responsibility is trademarked by & registered with TMC. I’m just boarding her train of coolness.

    I’ve been thinking about dabbling in bread-making too, but I don’t want to buy a machine. I put Jim Lahey’s My Bread (No-Knead) cookbook on my X-Mas list…here’s hoping: http://www.amazon.com/My-Bread-Revolutionary-No-Work-No-Knead/dp/0393066304/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1260453603&sr=1-1

    @ Sara P–challah is really easy. Bagels are amazingly easy. I’ve never done a rustic/artisan bread. You can doooo eeet! It’s fun. I like doing it, I’ve just been out of practice. Obviously, I’d love to vault into the world of baguettes and sourdough rounds and pastries….we’ll see
