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 host 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.

What will you share this week? We all look forward to your submissions!

    Thanks for hosting this link up. I always enjoy it. I’m talking about the products we use on our skin, how to find out if they are safe, and making homemade products instead of using commercial stuff.
    I look forward to seeing some great ideas here this week.

    Hello again! ‘Tis the season to put up pumpkin puree and enjoy some yummy pepitas (pumpkin seeds), and this week I’m sharing my method to do so. I also compare 2 methods for roasting pumpkins: using the oven and using the slow cooker. I share the results and my personal preference. Have a great week!
