Welcome to this week’s edition of My Week on Wednesday… where I take a few minutes to share some of the things I did, and learned throughout the week. And some of the blogs I visited and articles I read.
I just realized something exciting… my blog celebrated it’s First Birthday this week! In fact, exactly one year ago today, I was writing and publishing my third blog post ever — Why I Love Tinker Bell. The Pixie and I still love Tinker Bell, and we have all four of her movies. We are even anxiously awaiting the day the newest Tinker Bell movie will be out!
As you can probably imagine, my post Why my Daughter will NOT be Selling Girl Scout Cookies is still going strong! It was featured by Real Food Forager on Sunday Snippets, and also on Natural Living Monday and by Urban Naturale on the Healthy, Happy, Green & Natural Blog Hop!
I wish to sincerely thank every single person who read, liked, or shared this article! And to thank all the lovely comments I received. Please keep sharing until the Girl Scouts understand that having GMOs in Girl Scout Cookies is NOT something that we will accept!
Also, this week, my article How to dry your own MINT and make TEA was featured by Clearwater Farm on the HomeAcre Hop, and also by It’s Your Life on Real Food Fridays.
Warm (and alcoholic) beverages must be on my mind: My post this week — Spiced Wine for Imbolc. I also found instructions (with beautiful pictures) on how to make a Hot Toddy from Cider & Rye, as well as a great recipe from Richly Rooted. I am also reviving two favorites from last year: South African Hot Toddy from Homemade Mommy, and the Revived Kitchen’s version of a Hot Toddy Cocktail. Both are fabulously delicious!
And say you wanted a warm drink that didn’t have alcohol in it… like for breakfast, maybe, check out Egg & Butter Coffee from Pickle Me Too. Don’t knock it until you try it. I haven’t personally, but I do put eggs in my hot chocolate and I put butter in my tea. So there! Plus if you’re wondering how to make those coffee-shop drinks that cost six bucks… (think Pumpkin Pie Latte, Peppermint Mocha, or Eggnog Latte) they are listed here! You’re welcome. 🙂
Speaking of butter, these Butter Buttons from the Elliot Homestead are amazing and you should make some. She also has a recipe for frosting made only with good, wholesome ingredients –honey is wholesome; that’s my story and I’m sticking to it!
Also, this is how you dehydrate lemons. And you are cutting up your onions wrong. (So am I.) And this post, because it is about a dog and it will make you laugh. 🙂
Finally, it is cold, COLD again. Maybe you should make some Ice Marbles! (And then come inside and have a Hot Toddy.)
I’m so glad you came to visit me on My Week on Wednesday! Please remember to “like” this article and share it. And, if you could all hop over to my Facebook Page and “like” or “follow” it — and share it with your friends, that would be great! My goal is 500 followers… but I am THREE likes away from 200. Can we make that happen? Thanks! 🙂
I’ll see you all next week!

Congrats on your one year blogiversary! I came across your blog on Google, and am looking forward to looking around your site and reading more 🙂
Thank you! 🙂
I’ve just been poking around your site, too… and I will definitely be back! I grew up in the middle of nowhere, but now our little homestead is smack dab in the middle of Rochester! But in terms of being from New York, NOT the City! makes us practically neighbors!
I’m so glad you stopped by!
