Eat Make Grow Thursday Blog Hop #7

Welcome to this week's Eat Make Grow Blog Hop where you share what you have been eating with your family, growing in your garden or making with all your creative impulses. Eat Make Grow is a collective link party that is shared across three blogs and runs every Thursday-Tuesday. Whichever blog that you choose to link up your post, it will show up on all three sites! Eat Make Grow is a way to share with many people posts about your domestic doings, whether that’s growing veggies, hosting parties, sewing, mixing up cleaning supplies, or trying out a new recipe. We want to learn about it! Every week, we will feature the most popular link, and one chosen by the the host. This week, your host is Foy.

Your Hosts 
Foy from Garden. Cook. Write. Repeat. 
Marigold from Hideous! Dreadful! Stinky!
Miranda from Pocket Pause

We’re not big fans of rules so there are just two of them:
No big corporation or business advertising or promotional posts. Let’s not dilute Eat Make Grow with junky posts. We don’t mind helping out the little home grown businesses of independent bloggers or handmade merchants (Etsy, etc.).
Please link your posts back to one of the hosting blogs. This is a common blog hop courtesy. This link helps build the Eat Make Grow community by sending your readers to all of the other participant’s posts. We will feature two posts each week and we will only consider posts that have a link back. A text link is fine, or you can grab this button and put it anywhere on your blog:

Our featured bloggers this week:

The most clicked on post was how to make Cream of Mushroom Soup from Camille at Growing Up Gabel.  She shares her recipe for making your own cream of mushroom so that you can make all those delicious casseroles, soups and other recipes with out all the sodium and processed gunk in canned soup.  Her recipe is only five ingredients!  I love the idea of having this on hand in the freezer. 

Foy's hostess pick of the week is Michelle's at Simply, Live, Love: Homestead Update 9/4 ~ Ready to Build our Passive House!  I got so excited reading about their plans for a Passive House.  What a boon to have a Certified Green Builder husband and a brother-in-law architect. It's interesting to see common sense and advanced technology working together in a house.
