On Surfin’ Saturday, I share links from around the web. It’s not always food related and not always blogs. It’s anything I find inspiring or helpful for any part of life.
- The Complete Patient has a post about how Mark McAfee got the CDC to admit they categorized some deaths attributed to raw milk incorrectly. I highly recommend you subscribe to this blog if you are concerned about the politics of food.
- Here is one lawyer’s analysis of how the Food Safety and Modernization Act will affect food and farming.
- Premeditated Leftovers has a recipe for an alcohol-based all purpose cleaner. I’m going to try it this week.
- I’ll so totally admit that this list of things I don’t clean from Simple Organic pretty much sums up how I run my household, too. The only difference is that I rinse my measuring cups and spoons if they have flour left on them once I’m done and pop them in the dishrack to air dry.
- Here’s a really neat tutorial on how to make dryer balls out of scraps of wool yarn.
- I hate plastic, but for most of us, having at least some in our home is a necessity. Need help choosing which plastics to use in your home and which ones are safest to use in contact with food? Environmental Working Group has a great page with all the info you need to know.
- Fifteen Clutter Busting Routines for Any Family is a great blog post on Becoming Minimalist.
- This is an idea for a memory system from Charlotte Mason. It is written as a memory system for scripture, but we are using the method to memorize everything needed for school work, including lesson review. It’s proving to be a very valuable resource to help my kids retain information for all of their school work.
