Random Updates

What a nice weekend! It was sunny and warm, we went out to lunch at the food carts, and we got a ton of stuff done around the house, plus it was nice to just hang out in the backyard. Yesterday I pulled weeds and cleaned out the raised beds to get them ready for veggies next month and Logan played in his little car, his slide, played in the dirt and threw the ball for Bella. Everyone was happy! (Although I’m paying for it a bit today with my allergies!)

Home Improvement

Our very old fence has been slowly falling apart and the last two winters had some bad storms that basically blew it down in sections. Thankfully the whole thing didn’t fall over, and thankfully Bella is a good girl and doesn’t escape when she’s out in the yard by herself.

We recently got the broken sections replaced and it feels so good to get one more thing off our “to do” list!

And I’m glad we didn’t have to do it ourselves.

Pickled Radishes

I really wanted to make some pickled radishes over the weekend. I found this recipe and gave it a try last weekend. It was pretty easy to do, even though I got rid of my mandoline slicer a few years ago (darn it!). It only took a few minutes to get everything together and then cook the liquid.

After a week I was able to try them. They turned out great! They were really spicy!

Kombucha

I tried Kombucha once a few years ago and I did NOT like it. It was gross to me and then I never tried it again. I couldn’t understand why it was so popular! But recently I randomly tried some berry flavored Kombucha and it was really, really good. I get it now. LOL

So I’ve gotten some random flavors to try and see what I like. Kombucha is really healthy and good for gut health, which is why I wanted to give it a try again. I want to do more to have good gut health. I love kimchi and sauerkraut but you can only eat so much of it. šŸ˜‰

Please tell me your favorite brand/flavor of Kombucha so I can check it out!

Sourdough

I’ve been watching a friend on IG make her own sourdough bread for awhile now, jealous because I’ve always wanted to make my own bread. Especially sourdough–I feel like it’s really healthy (much healthier than regular bread you buy in a store). I recently asked her for some sourdough starter and she gave me some and instructions.

So last weekend I got the starter and “fed” it. I am really excited to experiment. The starter smells SO good!

This is the recipe my friend suggested: Easy Sourdough Artisan Bread. I’m hoping to make our first loaf in a few weeks!

Big Boy!

Logan has had several haircuts since his first birthday but this was the FIRST haircut where he sat on a booster seat all by himself (without me having to hold him). He did such a good job! I was so proud of him.

Also, Logan helped me make a cake. He loves helping in the kitchen.

How was your weekend?

  1. Hubby has gotten on the kombucha train as well and is making his own now. Thank goodness Princess is off at college, because her closet is now the kombucha closet! He likes the Synergy brand best while he’s waiting for his batches to finish fermenting. He also is making sauerkraut at home and it’s really good! Although I don’t care for kombucha, I’m happy to pamper my gut biome with homemade sauerkraut! Logan looks so cute getting his hair cut – what a patient guy!
