Follow The Road Less Traveled


Just a friendly reminder do not follow the pack. 
Be your own person and do what you think is best.
But most of all follow the road less traveled and have many grand adventures along the way!

Got Milk?

 So milk along with everything else is becoming expensive. Let's be honest everything is becoming expensive. More people are using food banks and pantries. I myself use from pantries as well because seriously my paycheck does not stretch that far and I am sure yours does not either. One thing pantries do not always have is milk or powdered milk. However, I noticed that the last food pantries I received contained packages of nuts. Well, I have received almonds and walnuts, and guess what if you like, plant milk you are all set.

What you will need is:

1 cup nuts, water, and sugar (If you want sweet milk)

A container, food processor, blender, cheesecloth, or a fine strainer, and a container to hold the milk in the fridge.

Step 1- Soak 1 cup of nuts in 2 cups of water. Let soak for 4 hours or overnight.

Step 2- Drain the water

Step 3- In a food processor add 2 1/4 cups of water and 1/2 cup of the nut of your choice. Let your machine pulverize the nut. After about 2-3 min you will be ready. Drain milk through cheesecloth or strainer into the container you will be storing the milk in. Set the pulp aside, after all the milk is drained. Repeat with the other half of the nuts. 

Step 4- Refrigerate and will last 3-5 days.

You Got Milk!

Now, remember the pulp? Well, you have two choices, toss it and be done or use it. I made almond flour with the pulp. To make flour you take your pulp and dry it on a lined pan at 150 degrees in the oven or your dehydrator till dried through. It took me 3 hours in my oven. After drying, put it in your food processor and grind it to a powder. This flour will store in the fridge for 3-6 months.

****WARNING**** Only grind down about 10-15 seconds at a time. Shake up and start over till it is fine enough for your flour. I read you can use the flour for coating food, or baking. Some recipes state use with flour as well. Experiment and let me know.

I hope this helps and let me know what you think.

Full Launch Of The Blog

 Welcome back, everyone! This has been a long time in the works but I finally updated and fully set up the blog to my liking. For those who know me my blog and my writing have been healing and therapeutic for me during the hardest parts of my life. For a while, I have struggled and considered shutting everything down and trying something new. But after much thought and soul searching I decided to not only toss out most of the old but start fresh with new.  As I work on the next chapter of my life I would like to bring you along with me.

A few of the old links are here as well as new links to social media stories and all the writing I am working on. 

So for all the stories, I am currently working on click HERE!

Different projects I am working on can be found HERE!

More new things will be showing up all over the blog soon! I hope you all have a great weekend and for all those who have been amazing and supportive of me in my craziness THANK YOU.

Also, if you could help a girl out and share the post or blog link I would greatly appreciate it!

Thank You,

Angie
