Simple Lives Thursday, 46th Edition

Posted · 21 Comments


It’s Simple Lives Thursday! My favorite day of the week where you share your tips and recipes for living a simple life. Below you’ll find the linky to add your post to.

Please read and follow the Simple Lives Thursday bloghop rules

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 policeman, however, 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 – The hosts will be choosing five posts from the previous SLT to highlight each week. Those chosen will be promoted and linked on all five host blogs. As a highlighted post you will also have the chance to win in special giveaways that we will be starting soon — another great reason to link up and share all that you do to live a simple and intentional life!

  1. Hi Diana! Just wanted to give a quick thanks for hosting Simple Lives Thursday along with the other bloggers. Your homemade tarragon vinegar looks great and I will definitely be giving it a try!

    I am sharing my recipe for homemade “magic” shell to put on ice cream – it’s so yummy!

    Thanks again,

    I shared a post about raising difficult teenagers and how I wish I would have done things differently to make a simpler life. I used these actions with my husband and sisters and they have worked beautifully. I figured they would have worked with my teenagers as well. If this post doesn’t fit with what you are looking for, feel free to delete it!

      Lori, I’m so glad you did share this. It’s been on my heart lately to write a post specifically about learning and being encouraged from women of who have already been through different stages in life. So often we keep in touch with those that are in the same stage in life and glean to their wisdom when really, we’re all in that same learning stage. It’s so much wiser to see how God has worked in someone already and learn from them. Including their mistakes. Thanks for sharing Lori.

  3. Thank you for hosting – and thank you for featuring my post from last week! I hope you don’t mind, but this week I’ve posted two links: another dandelion recipe and reasons cities should allow the keeping of urban chickens! I would love to hear what everyone thinks! –Shanon

    HI Diana,
    Your tarragon vinegar looks really good! I shared my GF Japanese Rice Salad and tow articles that I hope you enjoy!

  5. Whoa, that was unexpected–thank you, Diana!

    Thanks for hosting, Diana. Today I linked up a post on my Top Ten “Must Have” Real Foods that store without refrigeration. These foods are tops for shelf life, as well as being high in nutrition and/or being able to be used for preserving additional foods. Did you know that sugar can be used to heal wounds (as well as feeding my kombucha)?

    I also linked up a post on Living Well Moms with ideas for healthy snack on the go, including some recipes for family favorites.

  7. sharing on my facebook page and linking next week. Thanks!

  8. I like the article on leaving those tomato suckers alone. It’s quite an unconventional perspective, and I like it. I’ll have to resist pinching those suckers, and see what will come of those baby branches.
