Tuesday's "Three"

June 18, 2013

3 Things I'm Not Fond Of:
  1. blogger spam.......I'm averaging 50+ spam comments per day.  I opened my email Sunday, for the first time all weekend, to 189 spam comments.  This did not make for a happy me.
  2. chipmunks stealing my berries.  I have a brave little guy who has built himself a home under my garden shed.....conveniently enough right next to the strawberry & blueberry patch.  Although they're netted he spends his day trying to outwit me.
  3. my toaster.  It's not working properly.  I made scrumptious everything bagels and toasting them is quite the task.  Something's wrong with the temperature gauge as it assumes they are toasted after 25 seconds.  It seems toasting them properly is more difficult than actually making them!

3 Things I'm Loving {to counter-balance the negativity above}:
  1. the book "Make The Bread Buy The Butter" by Jennifer Reese.  I'm cooking/baking my way through it and she really has compiled a nice list of recipes.
  2. homemade strawberry jam.  Did I mention I love strawberries???  Oh, and that I also love jam??  I will say, I tried Pomona pectin for the first time over the weekend and am not loving that.  I liked that I could use less sugar.  I didn't like, however, that it sets the jam so thick it's like strawberry jell-o.  Strawberry jell-o on toast anyone?  I've got 7 jars......
  3. my new bedroom rugs.  I replaced the rugs that are on each side of the bed with soft and cozy rugs.  Emerson enjoys them too - he rubs his body and face all over them every night before bed.

3 Inspiring Ideas:
  1. This Lemon-Sugar scrub.  This one too!
  2. This garden entry - beautiful!
  3. Making wire baskets.....this gets some creative juices flowing!

Happy Tuesday!!

12 Tips For Eating Real Food On A REAL Budget

February 15, 2018

1. Maximize Less Expensive Foods
Part of this tip is getting into the habit of eating in season because in season veggies are typically much cheaper than out of season. The other thing to consider is thinking about ingredients you and your family enjoy that are (either seasonally or year-round) cheaper and incorporating them more into your meals. For instance, carrots are a pretty inexpensive...

February 13, 2018

If you’re just joining in, the “Change Your Life In 2018” series is my quest to make some small changes this year.

$100.00/Week Real Food Meal Plan - Week 7

February 11, 2018

If you’re just tuning in, this is an ongoing series in which I share our weekly meal plan as I (attempt) to convert us to a Whole/Real Food lifestyle.  Our grocery budget is $100.00/week for 2 adults.  Often I make 2 different meals because I am primarily plant-based and my husband is not.  Most of what we eat is made from scratch and any boxed, canned and/or frozen products follow the Real Food...
