We love green onions around here. They are so good on so many things! A friend of mine had mentioned to me once that if you take the bottom of a green onion after you use it and put it in water that it will grow back. Of course I was skeptical, as was my husband when I told him as well. So of course we had to start our science experiment. To our excitement after a couple days we had more green onion! In the past few months I have only bout new green onions I think one time and it was because the water got kind of slimy and I had to throw out what I had. So a note to myself and others doing this... Keep the bottom of the onion and the water clean and you'll almost never have to buy green onions again! Plus they look super pretty sitting up in my kitchen :)

If you have *liked* me on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/myquesttobeabettermommy) you have probably seen a few days (and pictures) where I have set a daily goal for myself. Granted, I haven't done this EVERY day but I have found it to be a great tool on days when I need a little motivation and I know I'll have time to get things done. It's really easy and it holds me accountable for getting a task done because I have put it out there for everyone to see! First it was my closet... oy vey! That thing had just been amassing clothes and trash and whatever else I felt the desire to toss on there since we moved in 6 months ago! It was long over due for a good overhauling! Check out my FB page for the pictures and feel free to use my page as a place to hold yourself accountable to a daily goal too! You can even do more than just one goal and post each goal as you go through and show the world how truly awesome you are!
