Mulch is really important for an organic garden. I love using straw as mulch in my garden because it’s cheap ($14 for a huge bale), it’s pretty, and it naturally decomposes.
Last week, we went on our first homeschool camping trip. It was the longest camping trip I’ve ever been on (well, at least, the longest one I’ve been in charge of packing and cooking for).
Five nights in the desert. Yes, I had to cook with a camp stove for 5 nights! I was nervous but it turned out OK.
After the first night, that is. The first night was hell.
The classic Italian soup, minestrone is an odds-and-ends dish you make when you want to get rid of all the produce in your fridge that’s about to go bad. Or just when you feel like making a quick soup and you haven’t been to the store. This is a soup you can whip up at the last minute with some frozen bone broth, a can of diced tomatoes, carrots, celery, potatoes, and other pantry staples.
I went through a lot this past couple years. It was definitely the hardest time in my life. Things got so bad for me, I almost stopped blogging. But many people reached out to me and told me they loved Cheeseslave and wanted it to continue. And deep down, so did I.
I got to the point with this blog that I worried so much about what doing things right and what “people will say” that I wasn’t being authentic. And it just wasn’t fun anymore.
I’m living for me now. And I’m writing this blog for me. If you happen to read the blog and you dig it, awesome. If not, that’s OK, too. Because I am not writing it for you. I’m writing it for me. This blog is my explorations and reflections on the things I care about in my daily life. Parenting, homeschooling, cooking, eating, and loving life.
Ever since Dr. Kaayla Daniel’s whistleblower report on Fermented Cod Liver Came out almost 3 months ago, there have been a number of rebuttals and responses that defend the FCLO. Lots of five-dollar words and sciency mumbo jumbo. WAPF scientist, Chris Masterjohn’s high wire act in obfuscation is a prime example. TBA and TBARS and TOTOX, oh my!
I don’t know about you but I don’t even remember high school chemistry. So we’re gonna skip all that and cut to the chase — common sense. I wanted to write a very simple, easy-to-understand post that outlines some very basic reasons the FCLO has to be rancid. You do not need a PhD in lipid science to understand this stuff, people. It’s right under our noses, as you will see…
In a video interview posted last week, Annie Dru revealed that she was sexually harassed by Geoffrey Morell last year at the annual Weston A. Price Foundation Wise Traditions Conference (coincidentally kicking off tomorrow in Anaheim). In that interview, I also talked about how I was sexually harassed by him at the WAPF conference in 2011.
In this post, Annie shares more details about how she was sexually harassed by Geoffrey Morell at the WAPF VIP Speaker’s Dinner last year.
