On today’s episode, we’re getting all “science-y” and debunking some widely held medical and household beliefs.  

We’ll examine a long list of remedies, cures, and practices we’re using that might have absolutely NO scientific bearing on our lives.What’s a time tested truth and what’s an old wives tale? …And then we’ll also just debate some other things we’re not quite sure we believe.

Plus, what we’ve learned from British pen-pals, what Cinderella really thought about sensible footwear, Kirsten’s obsession with daily step counts, and Graham’s steadfast, lifelong commitment to lucky pennies.

What’s for dinner?  Kirsten has no idea what she’s making tonight, but her co-host Graham never has to ask this question! For almost a decade Graham has been using the same special menu-planning system to get dinner on the table. On this episode of The Home Hour we take a deep dive into Graham’s tried and true method for how she feeds her family. She swears this system has helped her to not only save time thinking about what meals to cook and what groceries to buy, but has also helped her to avoid waste and save money.  By using a special binder of her own design, Graham has been collecting recipes and assigning them to designated weeks. In a separate section of the binder, she lists every ingredient of each recipe needed for the week. These pre-printed sheets serve as a guide for checking her kitchen inventory and as the basis for her weekly shopping list. To learn more about the details of this system, how to stay flexible when plans change, and how she adds new recipes to the mix, be sure to listen to this episode on the player below or on your favorite podcast listening app. SPONSOR […]
