Uneventful bliss

Ever since Jason came home I have been doing a whole lot of nothing except spend time with him. We finally got our garden planted last weekend and it is looking good! We planted tomatoes, lettuce, onions, green, hot, and yellow peppers, egg plants, brussel sprouts, zucchini, cabbage, and cauliflower. We hope to have a huge crop that will last us well into the winter and thus save us money! I will hopefully get around to taking some pictures of the garden tonight.

We also bought a hammock this weekend. It is so nice to relax and read a book while laying in the hammock.

Speaking of reading a book, Jason and I have decided that we are going to cancel our satelite! This is a good thing because we are now going to save about 80 dollars a month! We don't really watch TV that often and if we do its usually a netflix or a redbox movie. Im pretty excited to save more money!

I have also found a recipe for homemade dishwasher detergent. You mix equal parts of borax and baking soda and use one scoop per load of dishes. Since using this I have found that some dishes don't get completely cleaned. I don't know if its because I didn't rinse the dishes well enough or if its the dishwashing detergent so I may pick up a box of store brand detergent and mix a 3 part ratio for the recipe- 1 cup borax, 1 cup baking soda, 1 cup detergent.

Nothing else exciting has happened lately so I will now bore you with tonights dinner menu. At least once a week I try to make a vegan dinner. In a perfect world I would be a vegan and never eat any animal products. In reality I am but a mere vegetarian. But one day a week I pretend..

Roasted Brussel sprouts, Vegetable Orzo, and Curried mashed cauliflower (instead of using all of the butter, cream, and milk in this recipe I use soy milk and soy yogurt). Eating vegan one night has so many benefits, its healthier, cheaper, and (not to be preachy) its a compassionate act that is easy to do!
