Hello everyone! Wow, today was just what I needed. I was busy all day running errands and doing wedding planning stuff. We started off by going to meet with the decorating company and we chose our centerpieces. I’m so happy to get that over and done with. No more dreams about wedding decor!
Next we went to grocery shopping and then to Andy’s parents house. Ok, get this, the reason why we went to Andy’s parents is that Andy wanted to pick up his old Super Nintendo games. Yes, that’s right…. we have Super Nintendo! We bought it yesterday and I’m so excited. It reminds me of when I was little 🙂 Another thing to distract me from studying, just what I needed!
The rest of the day was driving around to get some other small stuff done. Nothing exciting really. Also, I forgot to bring my camera so no pics! Woops. Instead of posting what I ate today I thought I’d introduce a hobby of mine. FARMING!
I’m a farmer. I grow my own sprouts! I’m not a typical farmer (my farm consists of a jar and a weird looking lid) because farming sprouts takes little time and little energy. Ok, enough being weird. Growing your own sprouts is so easy and results in delicious that are so good in sandwiches or on salads!
Look at this:
1. You take a jar. (I got mine from a local health food store. Its made specifically for sprouts because it has a special lid) Then put 1-2 tablespoons of seeds/beans in the jar. You can get the seeds/beans from a health food store too. Next, cover the seeds/beans with water and let soak for 2-6 hours.
2. Drain the water from the jar, leaving only the seeds/beans. This is where the special lid comes in handy, it has little holes in it for straining the water out. Then, tilt the jar on the side, the special lid has an anchor to make this easy too. Let sit on a plate in the fridge until the next day.
3. The next day, put some water in the jar and drain out right away. Repeat the rinsing and draining each day until the seeds/beans are done sprouting! Takes about 3-6 days. Easy, am I right?
If you love sprouts and haven’t ever tried sprouting your own, try it!!! I didn’t know that doing so little could be so rewarding!
Aight, I’m off to go watch Julie and Julia! I’m so excited, I’ve wanted to see this for so long. It’s finally happening, I finally convinced Andy to watch it with me! Ok nighty night!
Question: Who likes sprouts? And have you ever farmed your own?
If you don’t like either of those questions then: Have you seen Julie and Julia? What did you think of it?
