Well, that was random.
So back to things I WILL be doing soon.
Ferments and Fats.
That sounds so fun, doesn't it? Who doesn't love fat (in your eating, DUH) and really, I just will feel so adventurous and connected to 100 years ago if I can conquer my fear of fermenting something...
I WILL RENDER (and use!!!) LARD!!!

I WILL GROW ME A SCOBY AND MAKE ME SOME KOMBUCHA!!!
I can't WAIT to try this. Why? Well, if you know my kombucha love (okay, that's like 4 people who know, but hey...) you know I could spend our entire income on GT's kombucha at the store and be a happy probiotic filled lady. Did I just call myself a lady? Wow, I might need to go to bed. Anyway, it's expensive. And I happen to love that stuff. And I always notice that it helps me in many ways when I drink it. And I am excited to try it with raw honey instead of using sugar.
I WILL MAKE (and learn to love) HOMEMADE SAUERKRAUT!
This post makes this seem very easy. There are instructions everywhere, but for some reason reading it there seemed so simple. Fermented foods (and especially home-fermented) are powerhouse foods. They provide amazing beneficial bacteria to our guts to heal our digestive systems and also defend us against the bad stuff. I also don't enjoy relying on a tiny jar of raw sauerkraut from the Whole Foods in Sugar Land 20+ minutes away for $10 each. Yep. I also want to make Kimchi!
Enjoy looking into these things! :-)
