I get busy and I don't read all the posts I want to, then when I find some time I try to get caught up. Always, when I come to your posts, I have to go back and read everything I missed. I also take notes This last time I have a 1/2 page of things I want to look up, try, or read!
Coconut oil and Baking (is it Soda or Powder? I think you typed both??)
Morning Thunder Tea (I love Celestial Seasoning's Bengal Spice - Have you tried that one?)
Just to name a few.

I had kombucha on the brain today, so had to stop off after work and pick some up. Thoroughly enjoyed a chilled glass of Rise Lemongrass flavour.
Okay call me stupid........... I have no idea what Kombucha is........... I'm looking it up.

I've gotten on a kombucha kick lately too. Alternating between multi-green and cherry chia right now. Picked up a grape chia to try while I was shopping today.
I LOVE Bengal Spice. I have it hidden at work, otherwise my co-workers would 'borrow' it. Great stuff!

Kombucha - addictive in a good way! I understand it is a fun and rewarding hobby to make it yourself, something I should check out although I have no room whatsoever for fermenting tea. I imagine there are many, many local microbreweries making this stuff. I love the local stuff, Urban Farm Fermentary in Portland, ME. They also make a hard cider that I would like to try, but I've held off because that is not quite so healthy as kombucha!
Enjoy enjoy enjoy!
My expensive skincare products catalog has food and recipes in it - yesterday it came with a very tasty looking meat dumpling concoction. Kind of Tibetan style. I made it into little spiced burgers. Onion, ginger, garlic, jalapeno, coconut aminos, fish sauce, couple of eggs, pound or so of ground beef. I mixed it up last night and when I took it out this morning to cook it I almost swooned at the aroma. It is in the oven right now and even more swoon-worthy. Another ten minutes, can't wait!
Slept great. Woken by feline alarm clock and also the bladder alarm clock. I read somewhere a long time ago that some Native Americans used their bladders as alarm clocks. (Of course they had no clocks.) They knew that drinking a certain amount would wake them at a certain time. But I slept six hours without waking at all, bladder or no.
Saw Oboe playing with Slim Cat for the first time today. They often sniff each other and sit side by side, but I hadn't yet seen them actually playing.
Well, let me tell you - it was a happy day when this catalog arrived in my home. Here is the recipe:

Of course I modified it. I didn't make dumplings, I made burgers. Used coconut aminos and fish sauce, no soy sauce. Didn't grind up my own meat. Added a couple of eggs. Just mixed the ground meat, eggs, and spicy bits all together and made them into patties. Mixed sour cream and salsa together for a bit of a sauce. This will be my new favorite burger recipe. The house smells divine.
