Recycled Food?

Does anyone buy those packaged salads? I do. Earthbound Farm Organic Mixed Herbs. I buy these because I refuse to buy basil, chives, some other little prickly green stuff, and whatever else they put in there, separately. They come in bunches and I find it a pain to buy a "flower bunch" of different types of herbs that I'll eat again never because you just don't use THAT much of any herb in two servings of salad. Not to mention having to buy a head of lettuce, red leaf lettuce, arugula, etc, separately as well. It just isn't worth it to wash every single leaf on every bunch of herb along with the lettuce, the arugula, and.... yeah, nooooo thanks very much. I made (am making) grilled chicken salad for dinner. Has anyone ever noticed that on some of the covers of the packaged salads they sell, it reads "Pre-washed" and "This product has been made of recycled bottles". First of all, even if the contents have been pre-washed, if the containers haven't been (which I'm sure they do not do), is it really all so clean to have it labeled "pre-washed" as though it were to smell almost lemony clean? Secondly, I don't want to eat straight out of any container that "has been made of recycled bottles". What type of bottles exactly, and who the heck has been drinking out of them? Just a random thought I had while making dinner. I don't know what makes me think of these things. I just do. On a different note, everyday I notice how big my baby is getting, and I want to hold on to every yesterday just a little longer while still delightedly curious as to what type of person she will gradually grow into.

She had carrots for lunch. Those little orange spots on her cute white onesie is proof:

Everything these days ends up in her mouth. I bought this new toy for her, and it makes me crazy because it sings "You Are My Sunshine" over and over and over and over every time she presses the nose of the little flower looking face (I don't know why I thought it was such a marvelous idea at the time), but she loves it:

She needs new toys. She's been quite bored with all her little hangy toys:

She's getting so big, my baby.............................................


  1. hmmm i should start buying packaged salad...because i don't like salad and refuse to make them...

    umm so, i find it super sad that i don't live close to this little booger :(

  2. I get the Earthbound too unless I am cooking for more than 4 people. You definitely have to clean everything before you eat it!
