"Green Greens the Green Way"

This just tickles me in the way it shows that everything is interconnected. With all the talk about that #1 Greenhouse Gas, Carbon Dioxide, it behooves us to remember that we human beans exhale CO2 all the time. So the tip from Bon Appetit through Epicurious, via Megnut, to “Put your fresh greens in a big plastic bag, gather up the neck, blow a little… carbon dioxide… inside, then seal it up quick (and) they’ll stay bright, firm, and flavorful for at least a week,” is as environmentally helpful as it is culinarily.

On the other hand, the negative side-effects of the new fat-blocking drug Alli, seems to have inspired ecologically minded MeFi member “leftcoastbob” who commented in email “Hurray for oily residue! Maybe now we can all quit worrying about our dependence on foreign oil. How much fat do I need to eat before I can be a self-sustaining Hummer owner? Helloooooo, Mickey D!”

In semi-related edible issues, Pixar + Patton Oswalt + cute rodents + wacky chefs? The first REAL must-see movie of the Summer, better to wait in line for on the 29th than an iPhone AND way better than the Pixar pixies’ attempt to combine internal combustion engines and Larry the Cable Guy (although that didn’t turn out too bad).

And for those of you who bow at the altar of Bacon (not Bacon or Bacon or even Bacon), here is the making of the ULTIMATE baconburger. Even Carl’s Jr’s Western just got PWNED!
