Three Blogs Meme

Karen at Only Sometimes Clever made up this meme quite some time ago but I’ve been thinking about it ever since and just needed a little time before I was “hooked” enough to have¬†an arsenal of¬†blogs to tag!¬† So, now that I’m fully engulfed, here goes.

Rules Schmules: (that’s my two cents!)

There are no official rules, but if you choose to do this meme, please link back to me out of kindness (and so I can read your response)!  Oh, and try not to name the same blog twice.

Three Blogs I Read Every Day Without Fail:

None, but here are the three I read nearly every time I’m online. This feels like confessions! Ha!

  1. Only Sometimes Clever
  2. Fire and Salt
  3. Pioneer Woman (I enjoy the plain english photo tutorials)

Three Blogs That Have Been on my Blogroll the Longest (to the Best of my Faulty Memory):

  1. Pig in the Kitchen
  2. Only Sometimes Clever
  3. Karina’s Kitchen

Three Blogs on my Blogreader or RSS Feed That Aren’t (Yet) on my Blogroll:

  1. Gluten Free Taste of Home
  2. Gluten Free Good Life
  3. Gluten Free Gourmand

The Three Newest Blogs Added to My Blogroll and/or Blogreader:

  1. Gluten Free Easily
  2. Celiacs in the House
  3. The Whole Gang

Three Bloggers Who I Wish Wrote More Often:

  1. ¬†Oh I don’t know
  2. I’m not one to talk but in reading other blogs
  3. I don’t like it when I can’t keep up! Dumb, I know

If You’re Interested in ________ , You Should Read These Three Blogs:

  1. ¬†Living with AlzheimersBob’s Blog¬†(Bob is an X-CIA who¬†retired after learning he had early onset Alzheimer’s, he and¬†his wife write about their¬†journey. I began reading his blog after my¬†dad was diagnosed¬†this past¬†Dec.)¬†
  2. Coping with the loss of an unborn childMoms 4 Life Blog (have tissue handy, Heather candidly takes you through the journey of trusting God after the loss of her unborn son Sawyer)
  3. Homeschooling Sonlight Blog¬†(A homeschooling blog written by a father. No I don’t entirely use Sonlight since in my state we have a “charter” option for homschooling that I participate in¬†but I do use much of the same curriculum that Sonlight recommends/sells)

If I’ve included you here, consider yourself tagged.

Sourdough Update

Many of you have been checking back for results on my sourdough creation. At the moment it is still a science experiment, but a happy, bubbly experiment. Never fear, recipes will be here! I did make a beautiful, moist and delicious loaf of sourdough using yeast and a myriad of other ingredients but I'm still trying to create something more user friendly. Wouldn't it be awesome to have a starter on the counter that you could add 4 things to and have a loaf of bread by dinner? Mmmm! Attempt #1 - rose well but resulted in a dense chewy blob Attempt #2 - rose ok but was thin and lifeless then fell and another dense (not so chewy) blob Attempt #3 - to the dogs! Attempt #4 - A sourdough pancake success see post under what's for breakfast gluten-free goof? Ongoing - I've tried several more times and am going to try a completely different approach on the bread starting this week. (Mar 18). My sourdough is still happy on my counter and it makes great pancakes but it's a lot of work just for pancakes. Keep checking! April Update: She is still kickin and I'm still workin on a yeast free, gluten free sourdough loaf! May Update: My sourdough "pet" has been dried and retired until next baking season. I've traded her in for a hotter model, the BBQ! :)
