Some of you come for the blog and stay for the news. Some come for the news and tolerate the blog. Whatever you’re here for, I appreciate it.
Since I have a houseful of guests and two of them are in a (men’s tennis) tourney this whole weekend, I am busy spectator-ing and catering.
So I will only leave you with my one semi-annoyed thought for the week. Why do food and pantry items that are labeled “organic” and “farmer produced” and “local” and “dye free” and “non-GMO” seem to have the most plastic packaging? You know what doesn’t need a plastic box? Garlic. Oatmilk? Give me a carton, not an industrial strength plastic bottle with a screw top that will last deep into the next millennia. Those cute little green cardboard pints of blueberries work fine. So do glass jars and paper bags. I get it, I get it, our tomatoes would be smushed and our raspberries pre-pureed, but I am just pointing out that Big Tomato can use all the plastic they want, but Farmer Joe who professes to be Good For The Earth is loading up my produce with every more complex geodesic dome structures of plastic doom. Also, Heinz, Hellman’s, and Grey Poupon— if you’re going to package your super-basic condiments in an upside-down plastic squeeze bottle that wouldn’t melt on the surface of the sun, at least don’t insult me by making it so that half the goop inside never gets out of the bottle. I think they call that adding insult to hamburgers and hotdogs.
