I like blogs. I like reading blogs. I like being inspired by blogs. I like learning something new from blogs. I like reading people's stories on blogs. Consequently, I have a bunch of blogs that I read on a fairly regular basis. A few of the most interesting ones to me are put out there by women who are thrifty and creative in caring for their families. Some of them even have this nifty thing where they post their menu for the week on Monday, sharing not only their recipes but also how much they spent on each meal. And let me tell you...there are some serious, economically ingenious women in cyberspace. (For a shameless plug on money saving...visit my friend Mel...her family blog is listed on our blog roll to the right but the link I put in this post is for her money saving, coupon clipping, product testing portal to financial bounty.)
I doubt you'll find anything that in depth or helpful on my blog :-) However, there are some exciting things (at least to us) planned to happen this summer that I will try to share with you. One thing I want to do is bump up my kitchen skills a notch so each week I will try a new recipe and post its success or failure on the following Monday. I'll also include my family's thoughts which should be entertaining.
Some things I'm looking forward to...making my own yogurt, grinding the wheat and making homemade bread, and loads of simple, healthy recipes like a yummy sounding avocado salad.
Oh, and feasting. We have several other friends that want to really enjoy food and the community it should inspire so we will feast this summer. We'll plan and anticipate and celebrate God's goodness and His generosity.
So, stay tuned. And please, feel free to drop me an old family recipe and maybe we'll give it a try.
