And this post could be subtitled: "Roads Less Traveled" (sorta) - or "It IS a Good Friday!".
I'd already planned on sharing an Angry Chicken link with you - where wildly creative and inspiring mama, Amy Karol (aka Angry Chicken), describes the "Potions and Concoctions" .pdf (download) she sells.
I wanted to tell you about it because Slightly-Brit bought the pdf. and was singing its praises. We've been talking about doing more organic and "green" stuff around here - and Angry Chicken's an inspiration and great resource.
Then earlier today -- through one of those rabbit trail wonders of the internet that I so love (thank you, Twitter!) -- I found Kim O'Donnel over at the True/Slant site, where she's heading up The Tempeh & Tofu Challenge next week.
And instantly I felt the serendipitousness (huh?) of the connection between these two links - the "roads less traveled" thing. So here we are.
Angry Chicken has loads and loads of DIY ideas and resources on her site - and the aforementioned .pdf contains (among other things) 16 recipes for health and beauty. We're not associated or affiliated with Angry Chicken - but we sure love her site and stuff!
The Tempeh & Tofu Challenge is: (and I quote) "A focused week of learning about and cooking with tempeh and tofu." I am quite excited.
Ever since Manchild became vegan I've been trying to incorporate soy into our diet (btw: there's a description of both tempeh and tofu at the link above -- stuff I did not know - you learn something new everyday, huh?) but have not done so well with it.
Sadly, instead of any resemblance to the yummy stuff I've had at restaurants, my creations have been more like mashed sock (blech!). The (linked) post title asks if you're a "tempeh or tofu virgin" - so I'm guessing it's A-ok to be a mashed sock kinda gal. C'mon over and join the party - we can wave at each other!
Lastly we have a ridiculously funny video about a mean Easter Bunny. Quite possibly not good fare for younger viewers - just saying... It's called: The Easter Bunny Hates You.
Happy Friday folks!!
