Simple Lives Thursday, #117

Posted · 6 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.

    I’m sharing the recipes I am made last week. There is an apple sauce using just apples. I plan to use it as baby food as well as adult food.

    Also a recipe for Vegetarian Tempeh Indian Curry. This is in no way authentic, just a couple different recipes I mixed together inspired by friends. It’s perfect for these cool autumn days.
    Thanks for hosting!

    I hope you’ll share with us at our link party too! I co-host Eat Make Grow Thursdays.

    Stop on by if you get the chance:

    I just linked up for my first time, with how I made leczo, a hungarian traditional meal first introduced to me by a friend. :)

    Thank you so much for hosting! I have a hard time linking back attractively–it’s always just a link! Do you have a badge with HTML by any chance?

    Thanks again
