Make Your Own Marinades

I was cleaning up after dinner and thinking about what to do with a chicken breast I had thawed for the next day. The mustard jar I’d used for sandwiches still had a bit in it, but not enough to use for another sandwich. You all know I hate to throw a good thing away so I dumped the bit of salad dressing from the bottom of the salad bowl into the mustard jar, the dregs from our wine glasses, added some olive oil, lemon juice, a tablespoon of Italian seasoning and shook it up.

I dumped the whole thing into a resealable freezer bag with the chicken breast. The next day I dumped it all out into a roasting pan and baked it up.

Result? Delicious chicken!

I started this blog to share with you all the results of years of turning trash into treasures. Hopefully I'll spark some new creative thoughts and if that happens I hope that you'll share your discoveries and together we’ll build a blog that will singlehandedly reduce global warming and save the world! Okay, maybe that’s a grand goal but we should be able to at least downsize our own trash output.

  1. You are amazing. Your site is amazing. How do you come up with so many ideas? I’m still stuck on the Toilet Paper Rolls suggestions for cords, and now I use them to store everything in. Like eye glasses, ear plugs, cell phone ear buds, computer anit-satic cloths, cords, chargers, and then they set beside my desk all nice and neat in a recycled plastic black tray. On Irish Attic, every item has potentional, that is art. *note When I’m waiting for my computer to scan, I write and draw scribble cool designes on them.

    Just wanted to post how vaulable your site/blog/book has been for me, and how it effected my household tremendously Thank you for your e-mails.

    Peace Debbie Yates
