It was almost a year ago that I showed you how to make your own kombucha mother from store-bought brew. So, are you a kitchen kombucha connoisseur yet? Well oi! What are you waiting for??
Before we jump in to our fabulous love listing, I’ve got a few little somethings. Firstly: Facebook. I’ve been getting a bunch of friends requests for my personal account on FB. And often, I’m unable to reply with a message (this must be a setting the requester has enabled?) So, I just want to put it out there that I reserve my Facebook account for in-real-life friends only. It’s like, the *one* place on the Internet where I’m not wide-open. So please don’t be offended if I don’t accept your request. Pretty please? I’m not trying to hurt any feelings. And don’t forget about the Bonzai Facebook page!
And now, I need a little input (this is what’s left of the Friday Feedback Forum, after all). I have a problem: I have too much to write about. I know a lot of writers suffer from lack of inspiration, but that is NOT my issue. I have so many ideas, so much I want to share! I could post an article a day for a year and barely dent my backlog . . . if only I had the time. Yes, time is my limiting variable. Time is never on my side.
So knowing that I can’t cover it all, I need you to help me focus. Of course, I want to give you what you want! (While staying true to what keeps me engaged, too.) So if you feel like weighing in, I’d love to hear how you rank the following:
baby-related (feeding/vaccinations/green solutions/etc)
my garden updates
foodie stuff (like the current juicing series, ingredients I love like the “I Heart Hemp” article, more on fermented foods, etc)
more fashion stuff? (articles or outfit posts?)
more DIY tutorials (crafts? cleaning?)
homemade dog food series
other (YOU TELL ME!)
Thanks guys! This will really help me direct my work here over the next few months.
So onward to the good stuff, Le Love List!, in all its loving glory. Mine:
1. Carob. Carob-banana-pb smoothies are kind of amazing. You just have to let carob be its own thing (no pretending it’s chocolate!) and it’s seriously spectacular. I think it tastes *thick* and *tropical* which I realize are 2 words that do NOT actually describe flavor. Ha! I loves it.
2. Powdered peanut butter. AKA “peanut flour”. HELLO!!? I found out that Trader Joe’s discontinued this product *literally* the day after I discovered it. Love at first bite. Totally unique ingredient that inspires so so so many creations. Oh Trader Joe’s, why did you take it from us? (Tell Trader Joe’s to bring it back – I did!) I’m hoarding my stash since after it’s gone I’ll have to shell out for the hella pricey version.
3) In keeping with the edible theme. I love getting packages in the mail. I loooove getting packages of food in the mail. I really love getting packages of new foods for me to try, in the mail. But what I really, really love is getting packages of new RAW foods for me to try, in the mail. Yay UPS man I heart you forever!
Okay, I showed you mine, now you show me yours! What do you love this week?
My darlings, this happy little post will stay at the top of the page all weekend, so stop by any time to leave your Love List, ask a question, or offer some feedback! Or if you’re new, please introduce yourself and say ‘Oi!’! This is your community, so get involved!
