95% Backyard Dinner Challenge
Happy Earth Day! We have been planning to start a 95% backyard dinner challenge and picked tonight as the kick off date. Little did I realize- it is Earth Day today. Que Perfecto!
How it works: Pick one night of the week and make a meal out of what is growing in your backyard. We are calling it the 95% challenge so you can use salt, pepper and one other ingredient you need. Let's say milk for a backyard quiche. Compared to the week out of the backyard eating adventure- this feels like a snap. We will look up menus and recipes depending on what we have growing that week.
PS- My photos have been a wee bit lackluster lately since DKIW dropped my camera on the floor and there is now only one focus level that works. I have been intending to buy a new one- but in honor of Earth Day I am going to get my old one fixed at the camera shoppe. It's amazing how things that are better for the Earth are often better for your budget as well.
