Re: Nourishing Traditions Support Thread week ending March 20th...

So my Kimchi turned out good! For anyone wanting to try fermenting its super easy and yummy one to hstart with.
My gingerale....well, it'll take some getting used to. I think for drinks well stick to the Raspberry drink and fresh lemonaide. It was just a bit much for me

B: Fried Eggs (w/coconut oil) and Smoothies

Lunch/Dinner: Minnestrone Soup and Focaccia Bread (1/2 Spelt Flour 1/2 Whole Wheat White...let it rise extra long)

Not sure about snacks and such. Were usually at church all day but I'm home with my sick 5yo DD and 9mo DS. DH took the rest to church but will come home for dinner.

Re: Nourishing Traditions Support Thread week ending March 20th...

It is nice to see a new thread! Today's food -

B - hardboiled eggs and soaked oatmeal
L/D - black eyed peas (which I actually soaked - I never soak these beans) and cornbread (unsoaked bc I need to get some pickling lime but it is from fresh ground corn)

I will also be having a big ol' slice of chocolate pie my mom made me for my birthday But hey, she made it with butter and whole wheat pastry flour

So I am not having much luck with yogurt not made in my yogurt maker (though I am going to try once more with the crockpot as I think the last time was user error) and was wondering if anyone knew of a stainless steel or even glass yogurt maker? I don't feel comfortable using my plastic one and that is all I can find.

Most of the ones that do several smaller portions use glass jars. I'm thinking of getting one. I'm anxious to see if anyone has any recommendations on which ones are best.

- What is Kimchi and how do you use it?

Sorry about your gingerale. I saw a recipe somewhere for ginger tea, and that is what one of my doctors told me to use for morning sickness once. So I need to try that out.

Your meals sound great!!

I think for birthdays you can have something special. Happy birthday!!

That is great that you ground your own corn! I bet that was tasty!!

As far as a yogurt maker http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/prod...p?SKU=15872080 I have seen this one again and again on my searches. Williams Sonoma even has a variation of this one. It has glass jars but the housing is plastic. You can even get more jars for it if you need it and I think you can double up the jars (so a ring can be added to make it bigger). I have yet to try it though. I am thinking that this may be my next kitchen purchase though... unless I get in the mood to try one of the sourdough cultures from Cultures for health.

Today was an off day because of the time change in this house. I woke up at 6 (7) and realized at about 6:15 (7:15) that it was 7:15!! So DH and I quickly got dressed along with the kid. We dashed out the door and made it to 7:30 mass! Still trying to figure how that worked as we didn't leave the house till 7:25 and we sat at a red light with no cars for a LONG time. Anyway after mass they had a welcome reception that DH wanted to go to. So we went and had what turned out to be breakfast.

Breakfast - DH and DS bagel with cream cheese, donut and OJ. Me banana nut muffin and OJ.

Lunch - This occurred after we got home from the second church at about 11 am. Soaked "old fashioned" oats with homemade raw milk kefir smoothie. Yummy!

Dinner - Lamb roast with potato, turnip and onion and an apple salad with homemade vinegrette

My oatmeal was mushy. I think I need to get steel cut oatmeal. What do others use for their oats?

Re: Nourishing Traditions Support Thread week ending March 20th...

I am really new to this thread but I was reading that Myfunfrugallife was trying to find a recipe for her turnips. My kids love this one and super easy to make and gives lots of leftovers. This is really thrown together so I basically just eyeball everything.

1/2 head of cabbage chopped
butter to taste ( we use raw butter)
1 sweet onion chopped
apple or two chopped
turnip or two or three (: chopped
pasta (we use brown rice pasta ..GF)

Put the pasta on to boil

Put the butter in a pan and saute the chopped onion, turnips and apples until almost translucent. Add the chopped cabbage to the mixture season with salt, pepper to taste.

Add the cooked, drained pasta to the veggie/ fruit and mix. Then serve.

You will need a BIG pot for this. I use my cast iron dutch oven. This makes a lot. I also add fresh kielbasa to this too and its just as good. My kids actually pick all the turnips out so I usually put at least 3 or 4 in this recipe or they will fight over them (:

Enjoy (:

Jennifer ~ Your dinner sounds so yummy!

Kimchi is a Korean Sourkraut...I used the NT recipe. You ferment it which is supposed to have many health benifits.
