Sandra Lee shared some eco friendly green tips on today’s thrilling episode of Money Saving Meals. First, she suggested we serve food wrapped in newspaper because it “saves on dishwashing.”
While it may save on dishwashing, the idea of eating food wrapped directly in newspaper seems absolutely disgusting to me. Aside from the icky hygiene factor (who knows where those old, nasty papers have been?), there’s the threat of ink poisoning. Yes, I’m aware traditional fish and chip shops in the UK, Scotland, and Ireland served their fish in newspaper because of its ability to insulate the food and absorb the excess grease. But even they phased out the process because of the potential health risks, especially from the lead type used in newspaper production. And unlike Aunt Sandy, at least they had the sense to line the newspaper with parchment paper before serving it!
Also, at the beginning of the episode, Sandra made a huge deal about saving paper towels by drying her hands on a cheap dish towel. And then, 15 minutes later, she put half a roll of paper towels under the lid of her crockpot to absorb excess water! The contradiction was obvious. It was yet another example of “pick and choose” advice, which has already become a laughable cornerstone of the show after only two episodes. I can just see the drinking game now. “Sandra Lee was caught double talking… take a sip!”
Oh! And did you guys know that dry, boxed pasta was cheaper than fresh pasta? I KNOW! I had no idea either! THANKS, AUNT SANDY!!!!!!!
