Mostly Homemade Mondays - Week 81

After a beautiful weekend like we just had here in Eastern Iowa, I feel like I can tackle any challenge that the week might bring. The weather was gorgeous - I spent so much time outdoors. Also, new to our little homestead in the city are our chicks

Saturday night I tossed a few vegetable scraps in with the chicks to see if they'd begin pecking at them. You'll see by the video that they are not really impressed. 

Stick around, because later this week I have a 'blast from the past' post featuring some pretty cute animal photos, an AWESOME *video* guest post from a couple that raises meat rabbits on their urban homestead in Eastern Iowa, and a contribution for the Real Food Rookies series (which features stories and steps on converting from processed food to 'real' foods).

It's going to be an awesome week!

Anyway, on to the party:

Mostly Homemade Mondays is a series for people that are on a journey to better living, via healthier eating and a more natural lifestyle. We realize that there are different paths that we all take to get to that place, and this bloghop celebrates that. Whether you’re a seasoned raw foodist who has banned all things unnatural, or a rookie who is starting out by cutting out junk food, we’d love to hear from you! Link up with your favorite recipes, projects, crafts, or rants and raves.

The Hosts:

Jess from Scratch Mommy
Joyce from The Skinny Pear

  1. Thanks for hosting! This week I am proud to introduce my son and very first guest blogger ever -- The Boy wrote Food Rules from a Fourth Grader after reading the young reader's edition of The Omnivore's Dilemma.

  2. Thanks for the invite and you have a great blog! I will be back often. :)
