A few weeks ago we gathered all the tote bags I have from conferences and a few (green) bags we bought in Australia and Ireland, where they charge you for plastic bags. We keep the bags in the trunk and use them at the grocery store. The amount of plastic Publix bags we have cut out of our lives is impressive! I feel good about myself each time I shop with my own bags! Try it!
And now for a different kind of green...
Last week I found a bag of Indiana Jones Mint Crisp Green & White M&M's. Morgan gave up sweets for Lent, so I bought them for him for Easter. We decided to use the M&M's to make Deceptively Delicious cookies. (They are cookies with chick peas mixed in.) The cookies are a bit cakey, but you cannot tell it is chick peas. It was Morgan's idea to make the cookies a second time, so they must not be that bad!
Well I mixed together the ingredients and had to laugh. The color from the M&M's made the cookie dough GREEN!
They were Shrek green. Morgan was trying to prepare the lamb, and I was making green cookies. The color faded a little after baking, but it was still quite funny. (I've used Photoshop Elements to change the backgrounds, but I did not alter the color of the cookies!)
My family humored me and ate them anyway. That is true love!
