A fun way to start the new year . . . no really! We love the Green Reaper, aka Elizabeth Fournier, author and funeral director of Cornerstone Funeral Services in Boring Oregon [insert bad joke about Boring Oregon — we keep trying to come up with one, but haven’t succeeded in coming up with a funny one yet. If you have one, please comment here on the blog and we’ll mention it on the air if it is any good!]. Who couldn’t love someone who wrote a book entitled, All Men are Cremated Equal: My 77 Blind Dates.
Elizabeth talked about some of the latest techniques in eco-friendly funerals, some of which will take some rethinking for people to get comfortable with. We had a hard time hearing about the details of Bio Cremation, which is an earth-friendly liquid cremation.
There was a lot of great information and I highly recommend listening to the show and to our feature interview with the Green Reaper especially . . .
And now for something completely different . . . It is crock pot season and Green Diva Gina got her very own for Christmas this year, and she’s not afraid to use it! She is having fun experimenting with it, and shares a great adaptation of her mother’s stuffed peppers using quinoa, her new crock pot and a mess of other delicious vegetarian ingredients. Get GD Gina’s recipe for vegetarian crock pot stuffed peppers. Listen to the podcast and learn about the difference between peppers with three bumps and peppers with four bumps . . .
In case you still have a Christmas tree hanging around outside, Green Diva Mizar has some great ideas of how to upcycle them to create a winter haven for birds, and also offers us a great tutorial for DIY pine potpourri.
