Ah, the first few weeks of school: first exciting, then overwhelming, then you get into the swing of things and it’s normal again. Guess which step I’m on currently? Yep, the second one. Hopefully things will be back to normal soon, in terms of life and blog posts. Until then, you get links to other people’s’ writing.

  1. Sooo in Australia we must be a little wimpier than in the US because I always thought it was the three second rule, hahaha! I have to say I pretty much never eat food that has fallen on the floor but I would never think about eating a slice of watermelon that’s fallen on the floor – that’s like a wet sponge waiting to pick stuff up, haha! 😛

    Hmm, as for quick and easy dinner ideas – I tend to find the best dinners are ones which can use prepared ingredients! I make up big batches of rice and quinoa and freeze because I know they’re a quick option for dinner when I’m in a rush!

      I used to eat things that fell on the floor occasionally…then we got pets. Furry food, blech.

      We’ve been making a big batch of soup and freezing half recently. Gotta remember to make extras of grains and such!
