Simple Lives Thursday, #100

Posted · 3 Comments


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. A Quicker Way to Thaw Meat by Katy She Cooks.
“Frozen meat thaws more quickly when set in a cast-iron pan. Something about heat transfer, and conductivity, and blah blah blah seventh-grade science…”


2. Garden Journal #8 by Happy In Dole Valley.
“The forget-me-not, alyssum, bearded iris, lilies, Japanese iris, and one vibrant pink rhododendron in our perennial flower bed are all putting on quite a show this year; I don’t think I’ve ever enjoyed such a gorgeous display! An abundance of foxglove are just coming on, so the late spring show isn’t over by a long shot.”


3. Summer Berry Sorbet Popsicles from The Natural Mothers Network.
“A popsicle recipe or ice lolly (depending which side of the pond you come from) that’s loaded with summer berries, this is one way of encouraging children to eat their ‘five a day’– a cunning health food strategy that doesn’t fail to impress!”

  1. Thanks for hosting! Looking forward to reading all the great posts. I linked up 2 mine, one from my main blog outlining my 5 summer goals, and the other from my local cooking blog about my herb bed.
