Tuesday is twisting...

This week has been pretty crazy here, some things have gotten pushed aside. So far...

I did it:

Kombucha mother success- now on my brewing (methods from Food Renegade)
I tried a fruit juice, and a fresh citrus blend (orange and lime) which was delicious. Next, onto my favorite "gingerade" flavor- just picked up some ginger juice and can't wait to set it up!

Sprouted Cookies - sorry for the delay on this- it took me a while to perfect the recipe but I have it worked out well to go with my variations now. Finally got my grain mill- makes it so easy!

"power bars"- these are delicious! from Lindsay at Passionate Homemaking, thanks to Katie at Kitchen Stewardship. I used peanut butter, prunes, and all sunflower seeds (I had no crispy nuts left!) and half butter, half coconut oil. I was worried, but they set up perfectly in the fridge. Big Boy actually said chocolate when he ate them- and I do think they have a certain rich chocolate-like flavor this way. Using the prunes also allowed me to reduce the sweetener by half- always a good thing!

Second try with sourdough- it's looking good and hopefully in a few days I'll have some bread to tell you all about!

Soaked Oatmeal Cookies- this recipe from Cheeseslave is great! I added in some homemade chocolate chips- yummy!

real pickles- I did brussel sprouts (DH loves 'em) and they turned out quite well. Also on my second round of sauerkraut this week.

I didn't do it (yet)

new candy recipes- a fudge, a toffee, and some chocolate barks.

Don't forget to enter my (first ever!) giveaway- 6 month subscription to my "Real Meal" planner

You've done alot this week! I'm happy you got a grain mill - that's a fantastic addition to your kitchen. I don't know what I'd do w/o mine. Thanks for sharing your week in the Twister!

You made pickles out of brussel sprouts? My husband would love that!
Congrats on getting your Kombucha mother going and also on your grain mill.
