As I mentioned at the end of my post on compost options for apartment dwellers, I decided to go with a Bokashi Bucket to deal with any food waste in my little apartment. Well, I’m happy to say it arrived on the weekend so I thought I’d share how it works in some more detail now that I have one in my hot little hands!
Now that I’ve moved into an apartment for the first time there are lots of things I have to learn how to do differently. Up until now I’ve been in houses with either compost bins or worm farms (or sometimes both!) in the backyard so we could easily dispose of any food scraps but I wasn’t sure what I could do in my apartment, so I set about doing some research and thought it might be a good idea to share!
This recipe was inspired by the recipe Erica from Addicted to Handmade shared on her blog a little while back. I didn’t have the same ingredients that she did, but it was a great launching off point for a delicious soup! I’m loving finally owning a food processor as up until this point my soup making has been limited to chunky minestrone soups, and while I still will be making large batches of that over the winter as it’s always been a favourite, I can’t wait to try out all kinds of other flavour combinations as well!
After making my bliss balls a few times I decided it was time to branch out and try some different flavour combinations. I had a bag of dried apricots that I was using in a different recipe, so decided to do an apricot and almond version and they turned out rather delish! They’re just as simple to make as the bliss balls, so if you liked those, maybe give these a try too!
Sorry about the lack of posts recently – we’ve been having all kinds of technical problems here in I Spy Plum Pie world, but we’ve almost fixed all the gremlins and will resume regular programming! Hurrah!
The other week I spotted this Vermicelli noodle salad recipe on the Vegie Project blog and wanted to try it, so I thought I’d make a Vietnamese themed night of it and make some rice paper rolls as well. They are so simple and delicious, and were a great way to start our Vietnamese feast!
