Simple Lives Thursday, #181

Posted · 27 Comments


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

  1. Millie from Real Food for Less Money
  2. Diana from My Humble Kitchen

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.

    Good morning, Diana! Thank you for hosting. Have a wonderful day!

  2. Hi Diana! Thank you for hosting us. :)

    This week I’m sharing a post about five foods that most of us think are healthy that actually damage our health.

  3. Thank you for hosting.

    I’ve been wanting to make this simple beef stroganoff for awhile now. Previously I had just threw my meat into a pot along with a package of Lipton stroganoff noodles. Every recipe I saw for making it homemade was just too time consuming and had lots of ingredients.

    This is a simple recipe without mushrooms (husband doesn’t like them but I do!). All ingredients should be in your pantry already

  4. Love, love, LOVE the hop – thanks for hosting!

    It’s been a while since I linked up here, so I’ve added 4 today to make up for lost time (hope that’s okay!). Also, I’m enjoying receiving the messages from your “25 day Grace-filled Journey…”! :)

  7. Hello! This is my first time posting over here! I’m sharing a post about why my daughter is NOT selling Girl Scout Cookies this year.
    Thanks for hosting!
