Gottatries ~ Free Kindle Version of Creating Transcripts...

What's Cookin'?

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):

Carrot salad:
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:

What's Schoolin'?

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:

What's Creepy?

First hamburger will be served made from stem cells in a lab.  This creeped me out so bad that I couldn't finish reading it - I kept getting the heebie-jeebies!
