The nice thing about pumpkins is that they last a really, really long time. We’ve had this one since Thanksgiving and finally got around to doing something with it. We also had some cabbage that was getting old, so I Googled “pumpkin cabbage recipe,” not really expecting to find much, and ended up with this [...]Read the full post.
This post has only the loosest relevance to plastic. Some ducts are made from plastic.

I thought creating a Fake Plastic Fish MySpace page would make me one of the cool kids. That’s what my friend Red said, and I succumbed to peer pressure. But then I found out that that MySpace was soooo two years ago. I really needed a Beth Terry FaceBook page. So I stayed up all [...]Read the full post.

Hers is exactly the kind of [...]Read the full post.
My kitties have been conspiring to increase my weekly plastic waste. I know that’s what they’re talking about when they’re curled up together pretending to sleep.
