We have noticed that quite a few blogs are not linking back to one of the Simple Lives Thursday host blogs (see guideline #2, below). If this is you, please realize that this prevents us from choosing you as a featured blog. Thank you for linking back to us!

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 4 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 (for the time being, due to hosts taking breaks)

  1. Wardeh from GNOWFGLINS
  2. Alicia from Culinary Bliss
  3. 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.

3. No giveaway away or otherwise primarily advertising oriented posts. Keep your topics to fit our simple living theme of “consume less, produce more.” We will delete posts that don’t fit.

Featured Posts from Last Week’s Submissions

SLT Featured Post Badge

We really enjoy reading your posts each week! Featured post bloggers, please grab the badge above and display it on your site! Link it to one of the host blogs’ posts for the specific week that you were featured.

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


1. Pros and Cons of a Plant Sale by Pumpkin, Pie, Painter.
“My husband asked me this the other day after the plant sale. When so much work and time goes into something, you have to take a look at it and weigh the pros and cons of the amount of reward earned against the amount of effort released.” We enjoyed the honest reflection and gorgeous photos in this post.

 


2. Ramps: Wild Leeks by Learning and Yearning.
“Walking along a bubbling brook yesterday, I stumbled upon a lovely patch of ramps. Also known as wild leeks, ramps are native to the Appalachian mountain region in North America. The perennial is found in deciduous forests in the spring. The bulb has a lovely onion-garlic taste and is delicious raw, or lightly sauteed.” This post includes a simple, delicious recipe!

 


3. Foraging Does Not Equal Free Food from The Local Cook.
“As we were philosophizing among the cleavers, vinca, and garlic mustard, I realized how much my views on foraging have changed over the past year. I used to think that foraging was all about free food.” A surprising reflection on the ethics of foraging.

  4. Hola!

    In anticipation of Summer I kind of jumped the gun a little bit and hopped on the strawberry train. Choo Choo!

    This week I’ve posted an homage to a 1980′s Sweet Treat. In that cheesy 1980′s seduce-your-flight-instructor-to-the-tune-of-Take My Breath Away kind of way. Read: Dark chocolate covered strawberries with pistachios. Oh yeah.
