The Perfect 10

Previously…on a very special Living Clean and Dirty podcast. OK, everyone who knows me knows I love to recycle.  Whether it’s tin cans, shampoo bottles or toilet paper it doesn’t really matter to me.  In the spirit of recycling I have taken my 10-Step Commandments from our podcast and recycled/reused here in one nice neat package, I call it The Perfect Ten (no hubby, not you but you’re totally a strong 9…ok maybe 8).  Originally I called it the Ten {Read More}

Boom Boom Shake Shake the Room!

There are three words that this girl lives to hear.  That’s right…Pakistan, Magnesium and Iodine.  I used to think that maybe 2 of them were places that you can only get to by plane and one is something you put on cuts for some reason.  As I get older (read: wiser) I have come to appreciate that actually 1 of them is a place where something is mined and 2 of them are the mine-ees (miners, minors, ??).  That’s right {Read More}

Welcome to Douchebagistan, Population: ME!

Let’s start 2017 with some definitions Goals: The result or achievement toward which effort is directed; aim; end Selfish: Devoted to or caring only for oneself; concerned primarily with one’s own interests, benefits, welfare, etc., regardless of others. Liquor: How a male animal cleans his mate (ok, that one might be a bit of a stretch, but I was on a roll) Well, so now that 2016 has finished kicking our ass I’m looking forward to my life in 2017. {Read More}

So smart, It’ll make you cry

Do scallions work like onions and make you cry?  Ahh, who cares.  It got you to check out the article and the video below. Hi guys, I know you are all struggling along without your regular LC&D updates so I thought I’d throw you a quick one to hold you over.  Another tip from my kitchen and this is one of my favorites.  Add 1 part great vegetable, a cup of water, a dash of free and voila…magic scallions.  Doug {Read More}

Who gives a chip?

 Raise your hand if you like potato chips… (wow, that’s a lot of hands)   Now, I love processed foods as much as the next gal, but I also know how bad they are for you.  In my quest to give my kids the potato chips they craved and not turn them into those weird kids who never eat snacks, sweets and junk food I decided to try to make my own.  I read a ton of reviews of the {Read More}

I want to give you an STD

Ok, you should know by now that I’m into the shock factor, and I’ve come to realize that’s ok.  I don’t believe as a society we listen to the gentle whispers, we are a society of Octo-mom, mermaid mockumentaries and Haliburton.  Nobody is going to give a shit if I say, “Hey, here’s some everyday things you should be doing to improve your life”, but if I go with “Hey internet, how about some Herpes”…you’re all ears. Let’s talk about {Read More}

Forget Cake, I Say Let them Eat BARF

“I’m going to let you in on a little secret, I’m the crazy one.” Usually after a glass (bottle) of wine I find myself uttering that sentence to people I’m friendly with but not yet friends. The more people get to know me they realize I’m more “solar panels on the roof” than “bodies in the fridge” crazy. Although I have come across a few people in my life who have made me wonder how many Tupperware containers it would {Read More}

Babe…I’ve got food babe

I’d like to dazzle you with a handful of quotes that I try to consider when it comes to food and what I feed my family. “One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well” – Virginia Woolf  “Sex is good, but not as good as fresh sweet corn.” – Dr. Ruth Westheimer (who I’m guessing is speaking of organic corn) “The doctor of the future will no longer treat the human frame with drugs, but rather will cure {Read More}

Surviving Val-Pocalypse 2015

As I’m sure you can tell by now, I love to have a good laugh.  But I should preface that with the fact that the material needs to be funny.  Back in my single days a guy gave me this card on Valentine’s Day.  Now, granted I took some artistic liberties with the card itself because the original is still probably in police evidence “just in case”, but the sentiment is the same.  He wasn’t funny, he was super creepy {Read More}

Your poo is green? That’s awesome, so is mine!

Wikipedia says that Necrophilia is the sexual attraction to corpses, the term has been around for about 160 years. OK, two things… First, me and the hubby love a good game of “oooh look, a naked dead body” in the bedroom but that’s just a game (I think).  I’m a pretty open-minded girl, but even I have my limits and sex with a dead body just sends my weird-o-meter through the roof.  Second, and more importantly…how many people have really {Read More}
