The earth – helped by her two friends, the warm sunshine and tickling rain – grows the food that we eat to stay alive. The earth looks after us and we need to look after her.

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: Lou states in Part 1 of her article, "As parents we need to ask the question: 'What legacy are we leaving for our children?' 'What about our children’s children?'

Again, in Part 2 she provides great ideas on becoming green and living a more sustainable life.

This soup makes a wonderful first impression because of its gorgeous color – a great first course for a special occasion such as the holidays. After people comment on the color, they rave about the taste and meld of subtle flavors. For a final touch, swirl a bit of cream in each bowl and garnish with a mint sprig...

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Kids always promise to walk the puppy, feed the puppy, clean up after the puppy, if only we'd get a new puppy! In this lucky family, the big dog takes care of at least the walking part. Smart, if you ask me!
