This is another departure from my normal reuse posts...or is it?

Here's a nifty article about a company creating wind power with almost no moving parts. Perhaps they could reuse "waste" fabric for these from another application?

I just found the article (and technology) interesting.

recipe: Cream cheese pie

This is a departure from my normal green-centric posts. This is a special Twitter request via @groceryoutlet

Cream Cheese Pie
pre-made graham cracker crust -or-
1/4 C crushed graham crackers
1/2 C sugar
1 cube butter
-Cut butter into crackers and sugar and press into pan

1 pkg cream cheese (I use neufchatel for less calories-works just fine.)
1 can sweetened condensed milk (NOT evaporated milk-not the same thing!-I learned this the hard way. But, I have used the "lite" stuff and had it turn out fine.)
1/3 C lemon juice
1 T vanilla

beat room temperature cheese in bowl until fluffy, add milk, beat, add lemon juice and vanilla. Mix. Pour into pie shell and chill 5-6 hours. Serve with fruit topping if desired.

I call this recipe the lazy girl's cheesecake. It's denser than cheesecake and a bit different taste. But, if you like cheesecake but don't want to put the work in, this is YUM!!!
