Simple Lives Thursday 49th Edition

Posted · 16 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!

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 Chickena 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.

    Hi! Thanks for hosting, Diana! My post today is about preserving asparagus through freezing, drying or lacto-fermenting. I based my lacto-fermented recipe in part on your post on lacto-fermented asparagus. :-) The asparagus season is wrapping up here, so it’s time to stock up while you still can. :-)
