Just when you thought it was safe
Posted May 30, 2008on:
I have a confession to make. I haven’t been watching the news lately. But today I turned on CTV at 6pm because the season finale of LOST is on, and its two hours so who knows when it starts (7? 8? Who knows?! It’s a mystery! Just like the rest of LOST!), and I saw this story on bisphenol-A on the news.
Now everyone knows that bisphenol-A is in plastic water bottles, baby bottles, etc. The folks over at the BlogHers ACT Canada have quite a bit on this. Oh hell, just google it. It’ll pop up.
According to the Environmental Working Group:
Independent laboratory tests found a toxic food-can lining ingredient associated with birth defects of the male and female reproductive systems in over half of 97 cans of name-brand fruit, vegetables, soda, and other commonly eaten canned goods. The study was spearheaded by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) and targeted the chemical bisphenol A (BPA), a plastic and resin ingredient used to line metal food and drink cans. There are no government safety standards limiting the amount of BPA in canned food.
Well. How do you like them tomatoes?
So because this wee blog is just getting back on its feet after being hacked, I have a question: anyone got a recipe for spaghetti/tomato sauce? And another question: is it possible to blanche and freeze tomatoes?
I have a reason. I get numerous tomatoes from Darren’s mom every summer – most of them I end up giving away because its just too many for me to eat (he will not touch a tomato unless its in sauce form. And sundried, sometimes).
I foresee much tomato sauce in my future.
And LOST. Mmm. Sawyer.
