Share Your Simple Lives Thursday Post
Bloggers, make a “Simple Lives Thursday” post on your own blog, then come back here to add your post to the linky box below the featured posts. If you don’t have a picture, feel free to download the Simple Lives Thursday banner (at top of post) and upload it using the script’s prompts (it is easy). Your post will appear on all five blogs!
Non-bloggers, feel free to add a comment here with any ideas or thoughts about simple living.
These are two simple guidelines for participation:
1. If linking real, traditional and simple recipes, please make sure all ingredients used are whole — such as whole grains, vegetables, legumes, meats, even sugar. In order to keep the integrity of “nourishing” food, we will delete any recipes that utilize processed, boxed foods. We are definitely not going to be ingredient policemen! But, please note that this is a hop hosted by advocates of the real, local and sustainable food movements.
2. Please link your posts back to one of the hosting blogs. This is a common blog hop courtesy. This link helps build the Simple Lives Thursday community by sending your readers to all of the other participants’ posts. We all end up sharing and learning from each other.
Featured Posts from Last Week’s Submissions
The posts from last week that really caught our eyes are… (thanks everyone for the great submissions, as always!)
1. Radish Leaf Pesto by Attainable Sustainable. This pesto made from radish leaves is vividly green and beautiful, and frugal because it uses the part we almost always discard.
2. Ants In My Kitchen by Jo’s Health Corner. Great tips on how to fight the good fight against these annoying (and often painful) pests!
3. Make Your Own Sea Salt in 4 Easy Steps by Just Making Noise. If you live near the coast (in an un-radioactive area), this is a great, frugal way to make your own sea salt.
4. Frozen Vegetables and Food Preservation Choices by An Austin Homestead. “There are several options for storing your produce for the next season, and they’re not all created equal or all suited for every crop.”
5. Farmin’ and Cryin’ by Diary of an Outlaw Farmer. This young lady had us crying!
