Weather is very warm for May this week. I worry for my plants I planted in the park next to our house. It's already too dry.
Went to pick up son from soccer practice to meet up at daughters soccer practice with husband for dinner. The challenge, finding a picnic for the park, feeding the entire family without any plastic packaging.
We went to Metropolitan Market as they have a great open food bar with lots of options. We got some chicken pieces, a baguette in paper, cookies in paper, cauliflower and tomatoes, and a glass bottle of tea and sparkling water. I was not happy I forgot to bring water from home, but we were really really thirsty.
I brought my paper box to fit our dinner in. Cashier scanned everything and we even thought of bringing their coupon for a pound of free asparagus. Total was expensive ($43) for a picnic, but as expected from Met Market. All tasted well and other folks commented on the great smell.
Highlight were the cookies with the melted chocolate.
Challenge of family of 4 living the WWMFD ('What would Michael Foster do?') way. Inspired by our friend, the Climate Warrior Michael, we are doing our part to reduce our carbon footprint at least 10 % each year by going plastic free, travel less, being a more mindful consumer.
