So it's not like this idea is going make the difference between wealth and poverty but every little bit counts, right? Recently I read that green onions can be regenerated. Simply take the bottoms with the roots and put them in water. Last weekend I did just that. Low and behold the onions grew.
See all that green? That's a week's growth. I'd say in another few days they'll be ready for harvesting.
It's ideas like these that I need. Ideas on how to stretch our budget and make the most of what we've got.
Along that line I've been introduced to a book -- An Everlasting Meal: Cooking with Economy and Grace.
Per Amazon: "Reviving the inspiring message of M. F. K. Fisher’s How to Cook a Wolf— written in 1942 during wartime shortages—An Everlasting Meal shows that cooking is the path to better eating."
This is perfect. We cook at home. We eat leftovers. But I want to be creative with what remains; use to whole animal (or plant) as it were. This book has great reviews and I can't wait until my copy arrives on the library hold shelf.
In the meantime I may just start in indoor herb garden. I found several old pie tins at an estate sale this weekend. I'd *love* to do this. So now the question is -- what herbs to grow?
