I have a plethora of dairy kefir grains; I’ve been raising them up to share with Traditional Cooking School members. I asked Julie at Cultures for Health how to dehydrate kefir grains, because I figured they’d ship much more easily if they weren’t wet. She gave me very simple instructions, and I’m sharing them with you today! [by Wardee Harmon]
It’s Monday – and time for another Real Food Quote Monday (RFQM). Today I’m sharing from a “Letter” in the Wise Traditions journal of Spring 2010. Allan Balliett, a biodynamic farmer in West Virginia, addresses the topic of fake CSAs — CSAs who cater to the consumer’s love of convenience, but distribute food from unknown or obscure farms.
Served on Erin’s sourdough English muffins, these are soooo good! I’ve long made Sloppy Joe’s In A Bowl – and these are a variation of that recipe. Often I stretch out the meat by adding cooked lentils to the Sloppy Joe mix. For these sandwiches, that variation is wonderful! Here’s the recipe which includes extras of the seasonings to flavor the lentils, too.
Welcome to the Sandwich Round-Up! During this season of the year, we’re doing more outside, perhaps going on picnics or having days at the park. This kind of weather and partaking in spring time activities makes me crave lighter, cooler meals – especially sandwiches! They’re portable, delicious, full of flavor, (hopefully) healthy, and easy to make. Please add your sandwich ideas to this carnival – now featuring easily-added thumbnails.
For tomorrow’s Sandwich Round-Up, I share my simple recipe for wild salmon salad, and I tell you why we like the wild red salmon from Vital Choice. Wild red salmon is an abundant source of Vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids, including DHA and EPA.
I hoped Erin would keep sharing her yummy recipes with us, and she has. Erin gave us the fabulous sourdough English muffins, which you must try if you haven’t already. They are getting rave reviews. She also shared her no-soaking required, easy sourdough waffles. Please welcome her back today as she shares her gorgeous and flexible soaked, spiced, oatmeal-yogurt muffins.
It’s Monday – and time for another Real Food Quote Monday (RFQM). Today, I’ve got a light quote to share with you. My internet friend SueEllen shared it with me. You will like it!
We splurged on hamburgers for our Easter dinner. Yes, splurged! It was a splurge for two reasons. First, because I don’t often serve a big hunk of meat to everyone. These were 1/3 pound each – and the kids were thrilled! 😀 And second, because of all the simple, yet special touches: a hint of mint in the burgers, carmelized onions, melted homemade queso fresco cheese, buns from Erin’s sourdough English muffins, and liberally spread homemade mayonnaise. The burgers were pretty much over-the-top awesome!
