Quiz Your Knowledge of Environmentally Friendly Cooking

And while we're talking green, let me throw in a tip of my own. I just painted the bedroom and was finally able to justify having saved all those old bedspreads, sheets, and towels -- you know, the ones that are too ratty to give to charity -- just like my Lithuanian refugee mother taught me. The box of rags was starting to feel like its own kind of clutter, but I was able to cover the floor and all the furniture that was too big to move out, without having to buy any tarps. Very satisfying.
