Are Your Candles Safe?

Do you love candles?

The flickering light. The homeyness. The fragrance. The romance.

 

For all they have going for them, they do have drawbacks. Are your candles safe?

 

Everyone loves a nice smelling home, and candles are an easy aroma source! But did you know there are lots of toxins in candles, filling your home with more than just a nice fragrance?

Technically, two definitions here. 🙂

Belief; the assent of the mind to the truth of what is declared by another, resting solely and implicitly on his authority and veracity; reliance on testimony.

Reality Check: Do You Know How to Make MEALS?

There’s more than one way to be a good cook (or just to know how to cook, if you’re not really good). One tastes good but the other one matters more.

 

Do you know how to make food . . . or do you know how to make meals? Complete, nutritious, well-balanced, on-time meals, without assistance or tears? That is the question.

A good loaf of bread, a tasty casserole, the best mashed potatoes in the world don’t make an entire meal. A complete meal is even an entirely different undertaking from all of its elements separately. Even a simple, mediocre meal is better than a single spectacular dish, when it comes right down to having to live on it.

I’ve faced this reality myself. The fact is, I’m much better at making a single dish. That’s where my cooking skill really lies. Complete meals (on time!)? Hmmm. Not so much! But the thing is, the life of a home cook is made up of complete meals . . . and lots of them.

 

How are you doing? Can you plan good meals . . . and then bring them to fruition?
