Weekend Reading

Beef as it arrives at our school this year.


We can choose! Next year, the USDA will let schools decide if they want to serve ammoniated ground beef, aka "pink slime."  Yes, our school serves USDA commodity ground beef. However, our district has indicated that they are working hard right now to find a replacement for our government beef.

Great post by Bruce Bradley on "leanwashing" -  Big Food tries to convince you food is healthier than it is  - and a new website that calls them out on it - The Leanwashing Index (spoiler alert - Frosted Mini Wheats did not fair well...). Like the expression "homemade challah french toast...sounds

The WSJ ran a great article on the amount of money we waste on food we throw out - and it's huge contribution to landfills. Find out why we do it. (And then buy a composter).

Local Fun

The High School is performing the Sound of Music this weekend.

On Saturday, Garvies Point will have activities as part of World Water Day.

If you haven't been to the Whaling Museum in Cold Spring Harbor, they are having a family craft event on Sunday afternoon.

Also on Sunday, the Children's Museum's Get and Up and Go Series will have a workshop where kids make their own healthy fruit and yogurt parfait.
