This and That

I thought I'd try my hand at another This and That post.
But first, it is Friday and that means

Easter Postcard

This time it looks like the anthropomorphic bunnies have finished
preparing the jelly beans for Easter.
The unknown artist had quite an imagination.
A big thank you to Beth for being the hostess for Postcard Friendship Friday.


I can procrastinate with the best of them.
Now I can procrastinate the mindful way thanks to an article I found
at the Elephant Journal called 
While I'm procrastinating over what I should really be doing,  I can do things like:
organize my closet, do the laundry, empty the dishwasher, weed the garden,
get a haircut, make a dental appointment.


I'm sure many of you know about Meatless Monday.
Going meatless once a week may reduce your risk of preventable conditions like
cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity.
It can also help reduce your carbon footprint and 
save precious resources like fresh water and fossil fuel.


Speaking of recipes:
This one is meatless from Whole Foods.


All Greek Salad

Serves 4

8 cups torn iceberg lettuce
1 cup chopped celery
1 can peas, drained
1 can (15 ounce) artichokes, drained and chopped
1 small cucumber, chopped
1 small onion, minced
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
6 sprigs parsley, chopped
2 cloves garlic, grated
2 tablespoons vinegar
4 teaspoons olive oil
salt and pepper to taste



I almost forgot.
For those of you into mixed media --
Christy Tomlinson has a wonderful video featuring materials from Faber Castell.
It's really worth watching to see her little hope filled girl come to life.

Wishing you WELL and a JOY filled weekend!

Never heard of Meatless Monday but we already eat a lot of meals without meat, so it is good to know it is helping our health.

LDH said...

ha... your post reminds my of my youngest daughter. I knew what anthropomorphic means because she loves words and is always helping me build my vocabulary and also because she is very good at procrastinating!

Recipe sounds goo too! :) Happy weekend! (Daughter and family from NY are arriving tonight for the week, so I am super happy)

Happy spring to you there in Houston, Snap. My salad for tonight's dinner (meatless on Friday, I guess) looks a lot like the pictured one.

The bunnies in the postcard look more like hares. And they seem a little creepy - or is that just me?
Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

Seeing that recipe from Whole Foods make me want to drive the 90 miles to the nearest one. I like their buffet and shop some too. Love the cute Easter postcard.

Funoldhag said...

You did a fine job with your This and That post. Love the serious looking bunnies - but I am going to have to look up the definition of anthromorphic! Have a great weekend.
