Life is interconnected and so are the topics on this blog. It might be cooking and gardening one day, yoga the next, knitting and sewing, or hiking and then bird watching followed by recycling or composting. They are the parts that bring humble joy to my life of voluntary simplicity in Montana.

Cutting into Cans
If you forget to bring a can opener and are forced to hack into the can with a knife I recently learned a little trick from Matt. Cut a "T" shape. By cutting a T we were then able to peel back the edges (carefully, since they are quite sharp) with the pliers on our mulit-tool gaining almost instantly have access to the contents. It was sure faster and easier than cutting a circle or a square into the lid. Two cuts was all it took. Matt knows all sorts of useful stuff like this....
It certainly is a handy little trick to remember. It is also worth remembering that while most soup cans are pull tops these days most cans of beans are not. And to pack accordingly.
