I'm back!!!

Here I am!  I am back and ready to try out my new knowledge of food!!!  Real food that is.  There are going to be bumps and bruises along the way...with the possibility of a few burns or burnt food!  But that's all in the fun of learning!

In a quick update:

  • I am in the process of making my first batch of Kombucha right now.  It's been brewing for almost a week and is possibly ready for me to take a taste tomorrow. 
  • I am still using a few coupons, but have started to buy in bulk (yup, 15 lbs of honey, 8 lbs of rice, and 15 lbs of chocolate chips sitting in my kitchen right now).  I have made my own homemade vanilla (sitting in a plastic vodka container at the moment).  
  • I am in the process of getting rid of all my plastic cookware and containers.  It is just too expensive to change over everything right now, but I am slowly making the change.  Ick, just to think of what could be leeching out into my food right now...
  • I am trying to find a source of raw milk near me and possibly moving towards getting organic meat...have you heard what they are doing to our meat sources...
There is so much more going on in my household, but my kiddos have woken up from their nap, so that will have to be posted later!  There will be changes in links and sidebar later as well!  See ya soon!
