Simple Lives Thursday, #111

Posted · 8 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.

    Thanks for hosting! It’s peak canning season here in the midwest so I’m sharing how my Plan to Preserve is progressing and my recipe for canned pizza sauce.

    I just started a blog hop with a couple friends called Eat Make Grow. We are looking for crafters, foodies and mommies to come share their knowledge and beautiful posts. We’d love to have you!

    Thanks for the feature! I don’t see the link-up spot to add another link for this week. I also don’t seem to see any posts added by anyone else, though I see comments on GNOWLFINS from people who say they’ve added links. They aren’t showing for me here or on Wardeh’s page.

    Thanks for the feature, ladies!

  4. Thank you so much for hosting! This week I’m sharing my recipe for Hearty Curried Carrot Soup. It is dairy free/vegan and I make it extra filling and creamy by adding adzuki beans. :)

    Have a great weekend!
