Three on Thursday

Welcome back to Three on Thursday, a weekly list of three things I'm loving at the moment that I think you should do, try, or buy.  If you're interested in past weeks and more recommendations, you can find those here.  If you make your own Three on Thursday list, please share it in the comments so I can check it out.


ONE.

Mexican Quinoa Stuffed Sweet PotatoesI go through phases with sweet potatoes where I either want them every single day or don't touch them for 4 months.  But we picked some up and I decided to use them with this recipe since I'm doing my Lent slashed grocery budget challenge and these ingredients I either had on hand or are very budget friendly.  This recipe a great option to get more protein in on a budget conscious and/or plant based diet, since carbs are usually the cheapest but not always healthiest items at the grocery store.  It's easy to follow and tastes great.  I made mine without the red bell pepper, of course, since those are disgusting.  Any other color would have worked fine but I just left it out altogether this time.


TWO.

Animal, Vegetable, Miracle.  This one is by Barbara Kingsolver of Poisonwood Bible fame, but it's the true story of how her family moved to a farm for a year so they could eat only what they grew and raised themselves, or at least procured nearby.  Because each item in a typical meal in the U.S. travels 1,500 miles to get to the plate.  That's crazy.  The costs involved in that, both financial and environmental, it's just amazing to think about (and not in a good way.)  There's a lot of good information in this book, and it's not just about how you need to move to a farm and grow your own food.  It's neat to read about it all from the viewpoint of someone who went out and decided to live it for a year rather than just preach about it.  I personally can't grow anything without killing it but I can do my part to get as much close by as I can - Midwest is farm country after all - and just in general be more knowledgeable about where my food comes from.


THREE.

Stupid Silly Sour Beer.  If you don't like sours, then steer clear, obviously, but if you do love sour beers as much as I do, then try this one if you find it near you (it was at Target for awhile!)  It's incredibly sour without tasting like wine, which is a must for me - I hate the ones that venture into wine territory.  I just want a beer that still tastes like beer but that also tastes like sucking on a warhead, and without being hoppy, which is apparently a tall order but this one delivers.  Any other sour beer lovers out there?
