Holiday Highlights

"Christmas in Australia is often very hot.."
Abby Sue the Sweet Shop Elf
Strawberry Rhubarb Preserves & the mini-homemaker
Advent....all is calm, all is bright
Christmas Kombucha...creepy, wierd, fermenting mushroom drink


  1. What is that kombucha all about?? Who's going to drink it?

    I love the kid pics... so cute! Ethan had his first Christmas program thing this year and it was just so sweet. Love the elf outfits:)

  2. It's actually fermented black tea made out of a really huge flubbery mushroom. It's supposed to be full of antioxidants and "good"'s kind of a hippie drink...sort of a trend up here...but Aaron likes fermenting things so I gave it a try. It's not bad really. You can add fruit to it. This one has pomegranate. 2 out of the three kids like it :) The book "Nourishing Traditions" has the recipe along with a lot of other fun drinks to make for the kids instead of juice and soda. It's fun :)
