A Workout that is Good for your Butt and the World Around You -PLOGGING June 13, 2018

Years ago I read about a group that went walking/jogging and long the way they picked up trash and deposited it in garbage or recycling bins. I led a small group that walked as a workout 2-4 times a week and we carried bags with us once or twice a month and collected a varied amount of refuse from the road and sidewalks.

I forgot about this until recently when I tripped over the attached article about PLOGGING in Sweden. Plogging is a combo-word of Plogga (picking up) and Jogga (jogging) . Seemed like a good idea in the past and is equally valuable today.

Now to renew the activity here, grow it  and maybe promoting it in the broader market/world.  Time to post a few ads for walkers, joggers….PLOGGERS and start with an outing.  Take some pics and get everyone to post to social media.

Next outing have more people …..and add people and then let it grow …..

The local Farmers Market season kicked off April 5 an the selection of fresh veggies has been improving and growing each week.

This week I focused on greens and roots.

Mixed baby greens and kale- that went into salads and soup.

And a couple bags of onions (yellow/green) , potatoes and sweet potatoes . I plan to enjoy these in a variety of ways over the next 10 days but Sunday morning after church I was in the mood for baked beans ( frozen – homemade 3 weeks ago).

So i decided to have potato “chips” baked in the oven with some onion and parsley.

– I sliced 2 medium yellow onions and spread on bottom of cooking tray(sprinkle w/sea salt)

Onions for Base of Baked Chips

– I sliced the potatoes (yukon and sweet) in thin chips.

-Then spread a nice olive oil on all of the chips and a light dusting of sea salt.

-spread the chips evenly over the onions on the tray, sprinkled with parsley and black pepper

The chips tasted great alone but were tremendous with 3 bean baked beans made with molasses and chili peppers in February.

A filling and healthy Sunday afternoon meal.
