MURF to the Rescue!

IMG_5236 mrfHere I am at Winnipeg’s new Material Recovery Facility, or MURF, wearing all of the necessary Personal Protective Equipment or PPE. I’m the one wearing the white hard hat and orange vest. This was all part of the field tour for the Multi-Material Stewardship Manitoba Board that I sit on.

At the end of the tour we can see how the various items are bailed up and ready to be sent out. The recovery rate is improving, but still a portion ends up in the landfill.

We still need a major emphasis on the reduce, reuse part, and then we finally recycle.

True Regret

Gulab-Jamun-Wallpaper-1080p-1024x575We just came back from our favorite Indian restaurant here in Winnipeg. My favorite deserts are the gulab jamum.

Here, milk and cheese solids are prepared by heating milk till the water content has evaporated. The remaining milk solids, known as khoya are kneaded into a dough, with a small amount of flour. They are shaped into small heavenly balls and deep-fried in oil or ghee till they get to a golden brown color. The fried balls are then soaked in a light sugar syrup  and flavored with green cardamon.

Rare is the time that I eat so much that I begin to hate myself. But after finishing a few gulab jamun, I began hating the happy couple beside us.
