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. Cherry Lemon Tart by Like A Bubbling Brook. Guest blogger Kelly shares a tart to use her family’s favorite summer fruit: cherries. “Cherries are an incredibly delicious and nutritious superfood packed with vital nutrients that improve health and well being, such as beta carotene, vitamin C, potassium, magnesium, iron, fiber and folate.”

2. Food Studies Emerge in Higher Education by Zomppa. We love seeing consciousness about food in higher education; it is well worth academic attention!

3. Medieval Cookery: Browning Chicken and Making Soft Cheese by Tea Time with Annie Kate. Traditional food cooked in traditional ways connects us with our past –- which was often the most sustainable way to live.

4. Just For Women by Mexican Wildflower. Simple and natural ways to help you along during “that time of the month.”

5. Mint Lamb Sausage by Hounds in the Kitchen. Not only are we impressed that this family makes a batch of sausage in 30 minutes flat, but the combination of lamb and mint is absolutely tantalizing.

    The Medieval Cookery post doesn’t work. And I learned about something new…reusable parchment sheets…what a neat item…now on my wish list at Amazon.

  2. says

    The women who were doing the medieval cookery found my blog and posted their recipes in the comments! So if you wish to cook medieval style, you can now use the authentic recipes. It seems I also got the cumin mixed up between the chicken and the cheese.

    Once again, thank you for highlighting my post.
