Clothes Out of Corn

Indianapolis Company Makes Clothes Out of Corn - Newsroom - Inside INdiana Business with Gerry Dick

The new clothing is made from the first and only "greenhouse neutral" polymer in the world. I am left wondering if Indiana will eventually make everything out of corn - automotive fuel, clothing, food, etc. Don't discount soy, though. I'm sure there's more to come from the soybean as well.

Menus, Shopping Lists, and Television Shows about Aldi's

Turns out, there are two entire sets of menus planned entirely around shopping lists that can be purchased at Aldi!
The original, Aldi Menu Planner, and the followup, Aldi Menu Planner - Fall/Winter Meals, are both full of interesting, reasonably healthy fare that can be purchased on the cheap.
Seems Aldi also starred on an episode of Unwrapped, on the Food Network.
Find the local Aldi store in Kokomo on US 31 North, just south of Sycamore St., right across from the Shell gas station.
