Operation Chicken Shit

Yesterday, I made two short videos (see below) and today I'll make another. I'm not ready to put my face on video but I'm also tired of feeling stuck in my fear. This is my way of moving forward. I call it, Operation Chicken Shit.

  1. Good job on the videos. I had to google stevia but was glad to learn about it. Now what about a recipe for the tortillas?

    1. Apologies for that, Granny Annie. These videos won't have much in the way of information. It's really just to get me more comfortable. Full videos with what things are and how to put them together, to come.

      Thanks for watching and boogie boogie.

    I really admire you and the research you are doing into 'ancient' flours and plants.

    Nature can provide so many good things to aid better health.

    Go Ivy Go !!!

    I enjoyed your two videos, I think your voice comes across very well.

    Have a good week ... I've got a new washing machine coming tomorrow (My Wash Day Blues Post)

    Take Care

    Good wishes

    All the best Jan

    1. Hey Jan -- That's homegrown stevia from my garden. Sadly though, what's sold as baker's stevia is pure yuck. But don't get me started on that, I can go on for days about stevia and other like products.

      New washer? Very cool. Do you name yours? Mine is named Wilma and she's a Speed Queen. Love her!

      Thanks for your kind works and boogie boogie.

      All the best Jan

  11. I have been watching some videos and they are a minute and just have the hands and ingredients, printed words and so music. Wonderful.
    So .... I like your videos very much. You don't need to have you face on them. Hands that the key.

    cheers, parsnip

    1. Those are interesting, I think you sent me the link but not for sure. For me though, I don't want to be ruled by my fear and I do want to be in front of the camera.

  12. I didn't know that about stevia! So much better that way instead of buying it ready. And the tortillas look yummy. I love when you do videos. You have the perfect voice for narrating. And you will be awesome on video once you get over the initial fear. I know it. I just know it. One step at a time. You will get there. Perhaps you can send to a few friends initially and get more and more comfortable with it.

    1. That was the plan for sure, to send to you guys first but I won't even get in front of the camera for me. So ... I'm working on that, Operation Chicken Shit.

      Yes, it's green and lovely. Nothing like the rubbish sold in baker's bags at the market.

  13. Go, Ivy, Go!

    Looks like you're on your way! :)

  14. I also wondered what stevia was.

    1. I mentioned it was a herb in the video but that's my bad for talking too fast. The stuff I grow, is a herb used to sweeten. Nothing like the white baker's bags found at the market.

  15. You did a great job with these! I agree with the rest who said you have a lovely voice for videos.

    And now I'm looking forward to the tortilla recipe as well. Love sweet potatoes.

  16. I know stevia, have used it on and off for a couple of years, but now I have to wonder, why is mine white??? Is it being bleached? Well done on the videos. Baby steps! You'll get there. -Jenn

    1. If you have a co-op or a hippie dippy store around you, you might be able to find real herbal green stevia powder.

      As for the white stuff, I don't know enough to share about that, but baker's bags often contain maltodextrin which can come from things that I'm allergic to, like corn.

      Now, there is other white stevia that doesn't contain maltodextrin and I have used that, but once I started to grow my own, well, I like that better.

      Hope that helps.

  17. Baby steps, right? Sort of like when the water is really cold and you need to acclimate yourself before diving in.
