Drinking Water

Have you ever thought about your drinking water? Well, if not take a look at these pictures. These are the filters for our reverse osmosis water filtration system. Can you tell which ones are the new filters?

Filter 1

Filter 2

Filter 3

Our system is a five step filter system. As you can see filter 1 and 2 our just plain gross. The filters are somewhere between a year and a half and two years.

All that brown stuff is what's pulled out of our water on a daily basis. Think about that the next time you turn on your faucet for a little tap water.

One of my favorite summer things

Cucumbers in Sour Cream

Thinly slice 1 large cucumber; sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of salt. Let stand 30 minutes. Then drain off the accumulated water.

1/2 c. sour cream
1 Tbls. vinegar
1 to 2 drops of hot sauce
2 Tbls. chives, chopped
1 Tbls. grated onion or dried chopped onion
Dash of pepper

Pour over cucumbers and refrigerate 30 minutes.

The only thing wrong with this recipe is it takes too long. I want them now!
