Hopping (Tuesday Twister – 8/25/09)

I don’t have ANY pictures to share in this week’s Tuesday Twister, as I haven’t tried anything new. I’m getting ready to go on vacation. I have spent three days sewing, and the rest of the time making my travel menu and doing advance food preparation. So I’m afraid I can’t set the standard for a Tuesday Twister post. :) But I’ll still share some of what’s been happening. I’ve been hopping!

Tuesday Twister Blog Carnival – August 25, 2009

Welcome to the Tuesday Twister Blog Carnival! The theme of this blog carnival is to share, through words and pictures, what’s twisting in our kitchens during the past week – with real foods, of course. At a minimum our foods should be real and whole, and optionally be naturally-raised, organic, local and/or seasonal. I’m eager to see what’s been twisting in your kitchens this week!

Real Food Quote Monday – “Real Food: What to Eat and Why” by Nina Planck

Real Food Quote Monday was born last week, when I decided that every Monday, I’ll pull out a meaningful quote from one of the great books or articles I’m reading and share it with you. I invite you to look for inspirational words in what you read and share them each week in the comments. This week, my quote comes from “Real Food: What to Eat and Why” by Nina Planck.

A Real Food Travel Menu

We’re going on a road trip next week. Our drive will be about 18 hours and my husband wants to drive straight through, leaving one evening (right after dinner) and arriving the next day in the afternoon. I’ll need to pack food for one breakfast, one lunch, and snacks. So here’s what I’m planning.

My Tuesday Twister posts are my weekly round-up of what’s going on in my kitchen and our lives, as it pertains to food. So here we go – this week: lacto-fermented pickles and salsa, a messy kitchen, soaked spelt-kamut tortillas, and Sue Gregg’s blender pancakes with plum sauce.

Real Food Quote Monday – “You Can Farm” by Joel Salatin

I’m usually reading an excellent real food book or article of some sort. So I got this idea yesterday that every Monday, I’ll pull out a meaningful quote from one of these great books or articles and share it with you. And I invite you to look for inspirational words in what you read and share them each week in the comments. So how about it? Will you join me? If it is too sudden – put it on the back burner for next week. My quote this week is from “You Can Farm” by Joel Salatin.
