Gottatries ~ Free Kindle Version of Creating Transcripts...
Here are some Gottatries that I've seen this recently around the web:
Easy pickles! It's been a while (about 4 years?) since I've made pickles. These are easy and you don't have to can them! My last fermented ones weren't so great so I may opt for the fast track with vinegar. The jalapenos that I preserved with apple cider vinegar 2 summers ago are still good:
Oat cakes. Simple. I love it and can't wait to try it. For some reason that I cannot fathom my children do not like the texture of oatmeal (one dd in particular but it puts a damper on my enthusiasm to make oatmeal for breakfast). They do all like homemade granola bars with lots of oats, and oatmeal muffins, so I think they would like this too. (note to self: leftover oatmeal and eggs):
A friend brought a super delicious carrot salad to a cook-out (Thanks, D, it was amazing!). It had shredded carrots, apples, chopped walnuts, some lemon juice (to keep the apples from browning), and a tub of vanilla yogurt. I hope I remembered right!
I almost bought some chocolate granola at the grocery store today but I put it back. Here is a recipe to make it at home -
Cream cheese frosting colored with pureed veggies or fruits. Amazing idea. I can't wait to try it! We don't use artificial colors and I try to keep petroleum out of my kids as much as possible. This looks like a great change from plain white, off-white, or chocolate frosting.
My family isn't big into any 'fresco de...' (or 'agua fresca de...') but this post inspired me to try again. I love frescos and find them very refreshing.
Homemade powdered drink (like instant lemonade):
Cranberry Orange Bars (with coconut flour):
Strawberry Lemonade Fruit Snacks (fresh strawberries, lemonade, gelatin):
Trail Mix Oatmeal:
Here is a free Kindle version of Creating Transcripts for Your Unique Child. I'm not sure how long it will be free. I just downloaded it to my Kindle after seeing the preview ("Look Inside") feature. You can also read Kindle books on any PC by downloading their free reader. I did that for years before getting my Kindle as a gift:
