Always keep on the bright side of life
Now I'll admit we do tend towards the granola-side of things, but sprouts are super easy to grow. So rather than think about it as a hippy-food thing, view it as an early sign of spring, as it's the one thing you can grow in those dark days of January and February.
When we moved last year we had very little kitchen equipment. So I asked anyone and everyone to pass along anything that they were getting rid of. It worked great! Our kitchen pots, cutlery, glassware, blender, everything was all given to us! We also acquired a set of sprouting lids for canning jars. (Luckily they came with the instructions.)
So we played around with growing sprouts until I got pregnant. (Sprouts are not recommended for pregnant women). And now I'm back at it. So here are a series of pictures of the alfalfa sprouts we grew last week.
When the muffins are done baking baste them in melted butter (you will need about 3 tbsp), then roll in a granular sweetener. I used about 3 tbsp of fructose mixed with 1 tsp of cinnamon.
The picture above is a close up of Uliana's famous cheeks. The photos below are from a trip to a playground. We walked past the local fire station when the firemen were out cleaning their pumper truck. Nikolai and his friend were invited to explore the truck! I guess the firemen had some free time on their hands.
