The TRUE Origins of Baby Oil

Posted by on May 1, 2012 in Humor, Photos, Wordless Wednesday | 4 comments

Following on the tradition (yes one post can be a tradition.. a start of one) I am going to share the secrets of how baby oil is made for today’s Wordless Wednesday. Yes, there is an old joke flying around “If olive oil is made from squished olives, how is baby oil made?” Well folks just rein it in and remember the back of a bottle is not always PROOF of where it came from. Are you going to believe those people? They are corporate America and they started in New Jersey.. New Jersey people!! Bringer of ‘Mystic Pizza‘! and ohhhhhh ‘Jersey Shore‘, such a FINE Television gem! And and lets not forget the STENCH! *shaking head* Seriously why do you think they had to add lavender to the baby oil… (ok ok snark aside let’s get serious) This is how they make baby oil!

Dandelion greens could be part of some dystopian nightmare right?

Some of you may have noticed that I was absent in the post earlier for the A to Z challenge from D.. if you didn’t or if you read it and thought I was being “cute” well guys.. that was the ManBeast! YES indeed he heard I was writing about either Dandelion Greens or Dystopia and he forced a PS3 controller into my hands, brought up .doc file and started rapid firing with such fervor I was a bit afraid. However upon reading it I am all warm and love this man even more. He is passionate and he nailed it. The POST is an interesting read if you have the time, hope you can check it out!

Myself however, I want to lay in the grass with my Objectionable Content Book, PURE and eat this yummy dish! My mom tried these out on us when we were growing up but they were really bitter. I have since discovered you can usually find these in bunches at local farmers markets, the Whole Foods in your area or Organic specialty markets!

You can also grow your own in containers with

Quick Faux Pesto & Pasta

Posted by on Aug 16, 2011 in Cabin Cooking, Hero Worship, Photos | 0 comments

While musing over eating better with a friend and my wonderful, albeit a man with a horrid diet, fiance Geoff he surprised us with a lovely little tidbit he earned while living in a Punk household on a Punk Diet and on less then a shoestring budget, his version of a quickie pesto dish! That night we all took a run at the store and I got to fulfill my new way of eating by buying lots of fresh veggies and fruits and other healthy things with NO frozen dinners in the bunch! PLUS it cost less then his budget shopping of frozen pizza, burritos, beans, tortillas and Top Ramon. I love the man but he has no sense of eating right! I keep telling him he can enjoy his food and be healthy too!
