It’s Simple Lives Thursday! My favorite day of the week where you share your tips and recipes for living a simple life. Whichever blog that you choose to link up your post, it will show up on all 5 sites! As a reminder, this blog hop is a way to share with many people your posts on what you are doing to live a simple life. Whether that’s gardening, raising urban chickens, homeschooling, sewing, making your own deodorant, or cleaning supplies… we want to know about it! If you’re into homeopathy, ways to save $ by conserving energy or other ways to live frugally… we want to know about it! If you bike, cook real food, homestead or farm… we want to know about it!

Your Hosts

  1. Annette from Sustainable Eats
  2. Wardeh from GNOWFGLINS
  3. Alicia from Culinary Bliss
  4. Mare from Just Making Noise
  5. Me!

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.

Here are our picks from last week’s submissions. Thanks to all who participated — it is always hard to choose!

1. In Which We Stockpile Hope by Auburn Meadow Farm.
This brilliant method of straining then freezing tomato puree saves both time and energy.


2. Meet Mary & Starr — And Creating a Food Oasis by Sustainable Eats.
It’s been a joy to be a part of Annette’s journey from an urban homesteader to a homesteader.


3. Heirlooms: A Simple Explanation by life in green.
The average joe — and maybe not even the average gardener — really knows how many heirloom varieties exist (thousands at one time) and perhaps maybe don’t even know what an “heirloom” actually is other than often having a distinct color or shape and unusual name.


4. Cooking in a Dutch Oven by Crazy Country Mama.
Dutch ovens are one of those nostalgic pieces of history that we all yearn to master. This blogger shows you how — and look at that cool fire ring!


5. An Endless Supply of Clean Diapers by Tiny Green Elephants.
An inspiring introduction to cloth diapering. Who knew cloth diapers could be so lovely?

    Thanks for posting, Diana. Today I linked up a post on preparing for winter. Although you’d never guess it from our temps today, it’s not too far off. There are still many great financial incentives available to help you cut your heating bills this season.
