Sleep Mats for the Homeless

Picture of Example Bed Mat for Homeless

You can help provide sleep mats for the homeless just by bringing us your old plastic grocery bags. So simple! How often do we recycle or even toss them in the trash? No longer!

First the bags are cut into strips and made into “Plarn Balls” which is then crocheted into dry, bug free and waterproof beds!

Recycle your plastic bags here at Country Harmony and make a difference. Being on the streets is hard but we can do something!

We are also looking for volunteers to help make “Plarn Balls” (example pictured below). Please ask us for more details if you are willing.

Orange Blossom Honey & Citrus Glazed Veggies

Savannah Bee Company in conjunction with Kristen Chapple came up with some delicious summer dishes that you can cook with honey. Tzimmes is a great Jewish vegetarian dish that is made using sweet root veggies.

Ingredients

Salt & Pepper

3 tsp orange juice

1 lb parsnips

1 lb carrots

1.5 lbs yellow beets

2 lbs yams

2 tsp orange zest

1/2 cup Orange Blossom Honey

6 tsp virgin olive oil

Directions

Step 1: Place 2 racks in your oven. Then preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Cut your veggies into 1.5 inch chunks. Add them to two baking sheets with paper foils.

Step 2: Whisk together grated orange zest, orange blossom honey, orange juice, and olive oil in bowl. Place the veggies into a bowl and add the honey mixture. Mix well until the veggies are evenly coated.

Step 3: Place the veggies evenly on the cookie sheets making sure you leave some spaces between them. Sprinkle them lightly with black pepper and salt before covering them with a layer of foil and inserting them in the oven. Allow them to cook for about 35 minutes. Halfway through the cooking process, you can stir the veggies and even replace the baking sheets on the racks.

Step 4: After 35 minutes, you can uncover them and stir the veggies before returning them to the oven for about 15 minutes. Once they are ready, you can serve them warm and season them with pepper and salt to your liking.
