Welcome to this week’s Eat Make Grow Blog Hop where you share what you have been eating with your family, growing in your garden or making with all your creative impulses. Eat Make Grow is a collective link party that is shared across three blogs and runs every Thursday-Tuesday. Whichever blog that you choose to link up your post, it will show up on all three sites! Eat Make Grow is a way to share with many people posts about your domestic doings, whether that’s growing veggies, hosting parties, sewing, mixing up cleaning supplies, or trying out a new recipe. We want to learn about it! Every week, we will feature the most popular link, and one chosen by the the host. This week, your host is me!
No big corporation or business advertising or promotional posts. Let’s not dilute Eat Make Grow with junky posts. We don’t mind helping out the little home grown businesses of independent bloggers or handmade merchants (Etsy, etc.). **We will be deleting any spammy posts**
Please link your posts back to one of the hosting blogs. This is a common blog hop courtesy. This link helps build the Eat Make Grow community by sending your readers to all of the other participant’s posts. We will feature two posts each week and we will only consider posts that have a link back. A text link is fine, or you can grab this button and put it anywhere on your blog:
Who doesn’t love a good DIY? Lazy people, i guess. Our blog hoppers must not be lazy in that case, because our most popular post came from Brown Thumb Mama. Her submission last week had some great ideas for projects you can do at home yourself, including this yummy looking taco seasoning. I’ve been making all of my seasoning blends for years. Although i love that addicting MSG flavor, i’d rather not sprinkle it onto everything i eat.
As some of you may know, among my multitude of businesses and homesteading skills includes soapmaking and concocting other herbal remedies. I make and sell herbal salves, but they really are so easy to make yourself! I have yet to try using plantain (a common and very soothing herb/weed) but love calendula and chamomile. Maybe These Light Footsteps will try a new blend sometime soon. Check out her great post (including links to info on Plantain) on how to make a healing salve right at home. Fancy tins not necessary, but certainly attractive and professional looking.
