Today is the main dishes course of the real food progressive dinner, also including breakfast casseroles! For my contribution, I’m sharing this collection of our favorite main dishes. And remember, there are lots more ideas over at Stephanie’s (our hostess) today.
For today’s Real Food Quote Monday (RFQM), I’m quoting from the introduction of a brand-new book by Joel Salatin — The Sheer Ecstasy of being a Lunatic Farmer. This book is likely to inspire the renegade in you!
We read this chapter on sweeteners together with my parents (who are visiting us). We came away with reinforced convictions to keep up our vigil against excess sweets. What about you? If you’re not caught up in this study, no worries. This is about what works for you, and we’ll be here when you’re ready.
When I was a newborn, my grandmother and namesake, Tata Wardee, came to live with us. She taught my mom how to cook everything Arabic. Today, in my little family, we love to eat heritage dishes year round, but especially on holidays. And these Middle Eastern pizzas make the cut more often than not.
Once upon a time I started a series here at GNOWFGLINS. I called it Real Food Quote Monday (RFQM), and I shared each Monday a quote from something I read. I kept up the series for quite some time. Sometimes though, the quotes stretched me. So I abandoned the series while I sorted out how to approach it in the future. I’m back with RFQM today, with a new approach, and a helpful natural remedy for keratosis pilaris — the sandpaper like rashes on the backs of many arms, including my own.
I’m answering a very good question today! Patricia asks, “I am having difficulty in coming up with a better solution for that can of condensed cream soup that so many recipes call for. Do you have a solution? Surely to goodness, there has to be something better?” I’ve got some answers.
Cottage cheese, crepes, and heirloom tomatoes… I can’t describe what tomatoes and cottage cheese do for my taste buds, but let’s just say it is perfection! The raw cheese delivers vitamins, enzymes, and beneficial probiotics. In this post, I show you how to make easy, homemade cottage cheese. [by Wardee Harmon]
