In A Pickle!

Look at our creations! Muhahaha!

Some of our good friends have started a “Skill Share,” in which they are teaching us some great skills and techniques that have been forgotten in this age of mega-grocery stores, and faster is better attitudes. They are definitely the people I would seek out first if all the sudden all a meteor hit earth and we had to build civilization from the ground up.

The first one was about brewing beer (unfortunately we missed that one), and this past Saturday was about pickling. We were pretty plane Jane and stuck with cucumbers and garlic because we LOVE pickles, but others jarred up some carrots, onions, jalapenos, and other various veggie goodness!

So although I did not finish ONE THING ON MY WEEKEND TO DO LIST, it was still worthwhile because I got to enjoy time with great friend, and felt so accomplished learning something new. And now we all are supposed to think up of a skill to share...any suggestions??


  1. This is the best idea ever! I would love to do something like that!
    Off the top of my head...what about making your own household cleaners, jams, knitting, sewing, making your own cards (although this is pretty self-explanatory!), how to cook a sunday roast, simple gardening, hmmmm.....can I come?! :)

  2. Great ideas Lauren! Maybe I'll do jam, i think i could do that! We will let you know when then next one it, it's been at Josh and Lindsay's so far, but I'm not sure where/when the next one will be.
