Here it is Meatless Monday. I hope everyone will enjoy a meat free day today, or at least one day this week, in our never ending quest for a healthier planet and a healthier you. Let me know if you try the Totally Vegged-Out Burger that was a part of Sunday’s Meatless Monday post, because, although Jimmy and I were planning on trying it today, we got waylaid by a much needed wedding research trip (not for us, for our son and his bride-to-be). Although we were supposed to be researching hotels for our guests, and we did do some of that, our research tactics also included trying out a pub along the way, and eating a bit here and there, all in the name of wedding research mind you, and it ifinally ended with an excursion to Ted Drewes, which is a St. Louis institution. Ted Drewes serves frozen custards that are to die for…I got the “Cardinal Sin” (vanilla custard smothered in chocolate fudge sauce and tart cherries), Jimmy got the “Dottie” (chocolate mint custard with macadamia nuts). Anyway, we weren’t hungry when we got home – what a surprise!
So today, being a day that we try to make the world better, I thought we would pass on this totally awesome product we found.
In our continuing efforts to be greener, Jimmy knew he had to stop buying to-go-cups for his tea and my ice coffee. We found reusable ceramic to-go-cups at World Market, which we were nice, however, they were very heavy, they were very hot to the touch, and I did not like the rubbery lid. We made due with the WM cups until we found…
Their tagline: “Fill, Drink, Wash, Repeat”.
These t0-go containers are awesome. They are light, the lid screws on so there is no danger of it coming off and ruining your clothes, or you, with your hot beverage.
You can buy these cups at Bed, Bath, and Beyond, Target, or Amazon (and a large number of other places, check out the link on the Copco site) for only $7.99. What an inexpensive way to help the planet. I smile everytime we use them :).
