My Many Mason Jars & The Vineyard is GREEN
My original post happened almost a year ago and I have been tweaking it ever since. I'm not the most organized person but I try. Mason Jar are the way to go for me! It's what has helped me the longest and I have stuck with it! I have been getting more and more grains, sprouting items, powders, and more and these are PERFECT for them! Not only have I been using Mason Jars I have been reusing other glass jars that I have come across as you can see in the 2nd photo.
The one with the Green Lid is a reused Tahini Glass Jar. I believe I bought these sprouting seeds over at VitaCost. Take a look at the right hand side bar for the refer a friend program. I LOVE this online store! Anyhow...back to the Jars! You can see in the first photo I have Marrowfat Peas. I haven't used them yet but I hope to soon! On either side are some of my Wildtree items. In the 2nd photo I have Arugula and Sunflower Seeds. I sprouted Sunflower Seeds before but didn't blog about it. I wanted to get a 2nd attempt under my belt first. Yesterday I started my first attempt at Arugula and I will blog about that later today, too.
In my 3rd photo - you can see the glass jars I bought FIRST even before buying the Mason Jars. I bought those from my local herb store where I buy bulk often. I started using those for 'meals' and alternative flours but I also use them for sprouting beans, seeds, etc now, too!
In this last photo - I have some Quinoa but also some Farro. I have to admit I am still new at using Farro but will be posting about this, soon, too!
In another section of my cupboards I have recently added Maca Powder containers and a Maca-Hemp-Cacao Powder.
I have been running out of a few of my rices - wild rice, long grain rice, and various brown rices that I had from Lundberg as well as a few other brands. I have also just finished up my Rice Crumbs and one of my Vegan Panko Bread Crumbs. Lucky for me I found a box hiding and replenished my stock.
blogged about Noble - it was cold!!! This time around it was gorgeous! The grounds and vineyard were MUCH MORE GREEN! Afterwards we went to Quagliana's Bark Grill - as we did the last time - it's becoming a favorite! It has a neat set-up as well as SUPER FRIENDLY people! They have an awesome cheese-less Bruchetta I had as well as something similar but with Eggplant and Red Peppers! YUM!
I was wondering what the 4th would have been like on the hill of the winery! You can see for MILES. I bet you could see various fireworks that night. We only stayed until about 7pm so it wasn't dark yet.
We have a party this Wednesday in Little Valley, NY, and we are expecting quite a few so we are looking forward to that and we have a few shows in the works, too!
