There’s An App For That

Here are some great apps I’ve found for foodies, locavores, and environmentalists alike.

Don’t Eat That: This app helps you determine what all those scientific terms listed in food ingredients. Enter in an ingredient or additive and it will give you health and safety information. While this new app is pretty cool, I prefer to save the $1.99 it costs and live by one simple rule: “If you don’t know what it is, don’t eat it”.

Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood WATCH: This free app tells you which of your favorite fishies are best to eat and which to avoid. It also gives good alternatives to those items you can’t live without, providing sources which use sustainable methods of catching these sea creatures.

Uh Oh…The Ground is Frozen

With tonight’s impending snow storm I thought today would be a good time to harvest the rest of the items in my vegetable garden that are not protected by the cold frame. I ended up with one green bell pepper, 3 lbs of carrots, a bunch of small leeks, and (hopefully) enough onions to survive the winter. Tomorrow I’m going to make some potato leek soup – YUM. I’ll probably cut up and freeze some of the carrots since I doubt we’ll eat them all before bouncing around from parent to parent’s house over the holidays. As for the onions, well first they have to dry and cure. This could take a while. Then I’ll keep them in our uninsulated  mud room which usually stays around 35 degrees F. This and keeping them in a ventilated, but dark bag should help slow the growing process and keep them through the next few months. (more…)
