It was "birthday week" here (i.e. the lack of post on Wednesday). In the most uneventful way, I turned 22 on June 6th. I told myself I wouldn't do any work at all, but of course that didn't really happen. There's not much to do on a cloudy Wednesday, so I worked on a new recipe, photographed, did some admin work, drafted some content. Productivity is better than doing nothing! When you work from home, that's the only option since everyone else is out. BUT, there will be some fun things this weekend perhaps to make up for it. It's scary (weird) to think that I'm 22. 22 is actually my lucky number so maybe....
We'll be back to "regularly scheduled" programing here on Strength and Sunshine, after the past two weeks of just 1 recipe per week. I may take some more of those 1 recipe weeks throughout the summer though. It's nice not having to worry about pushing out new content so much in the slow laziness of summer! Stay tuned for a celebratory post later in the month...and if you're a long time reader, you already know why!

Health, Celiac Disease, & Food Allergies:
It has to start somewhere.
Something to watch. But this is why I don't use Bob's Red Mill GF Oats. They are NOT certified. I know you'll see a lot of NON-celiac food bloggers use them and claim their recipe as "gluten-free" or recommend using them to make their recipe gluten-free, but please be advised that BRM gluten-free labeled oats are not certified gluten-free.
Blogging & Social Media:
