Now, as soon as I buy my salad veggies, I clean them, chop or remove whatever leaves I need to, and put them in the salad boxes with a paper towel on top...and turn the box upside down (to let the extra moisture go into the paper towel).
Since I eat salads (with sprouts) every day, this has really helped me save time. Also, I find that I am throwing out less wilted lettuce and spinach or other salad veggies. So I am not wasting food and I am saving money.
This sweet book also shows how important animals can be in our lives...and that instead of complaining about having to clean up after them or take care of them...to realize...amoung other things...that you are burning more calories taking care of your pets...ha!
Thanks Patti for your inspiring book.
I am not an avid reader but couldn't seem to put this book down. It is a very enjoyable read. I found myself smiling and laughing while reading it. All of the situations that Patti discusses have happened to pet owners at one time or another. In this case, she has put those funny things in writing. Some of the situations will having you saying to yourself "all you need to do is". Patti and Sadie find their way and grow closer everyday through their journey.
When I reached the end of the book I was disappointed knowing that I would have to wait for a while before Patti releases another book. Enjoy everyday you live. Don't let the multitasking world we live in prevent you from seeing the beauty around you. As she says "lighten up". If you are a pet owner, your pet will enjoy the company and exercise. If you are not a pet owner and are thinking about owning one, visit the shelter and save a dogs life. He or she will be forever grateful to you once they have trained you properly.
