The Urban Cultivator

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I get totally discouraged at the whole idea of technology taking over our daily lives–pulling us away from the whole cycle of life happening out of doors, so when I found out about the Urban Cultivator on Treehugger, I kind of felt like technology was redeeming itself a bit.  I mean, if we are going to have appliances, why not have ones that allow us to become a little more independent with our food sources?

The Urban Cultivator is basically an indoor growing system–designed to provide the right amount of light, water, etc. so that you can grown your own greens year round right in your kitchen.  I know, you can do this in little pots near the window, but this totally amps up the process.  I like the idea that it fits under the counter–like a little mini-fridge.  The whole idea is in support of a zero mile diet.  You grow it, you harvest it, you eat it.  The energy used to keep the appliance going is far less than the energy used to truck your herbs and greens to your grocery store.  The one drawback is that they cost a small fortune {about $2500–yikes!}.

Maybe they will be like flat screen t.v.’s used to seem–totally out of reach, and then one day, bam! you can pick it up on a Black Friday deal at Walmart for a steal, and the next thing you know, everyone has one?

What do you think, would you want one of these bad boys in your kitchen?

lucy the puggle dog

Well hello there, can you believe it’s already Thursday? I feel like this week is just zipping on by, although that’s probably because I feel like I’m actually getting a bunch of stuff done. HA!

Yesterday I scored a bunch of bulbs from the Home Depot for half off… if you need bulbs, be sure and load up before all the good stuff is gone. On the agenda for today… Cameron and John Voight will be here working on the trim, I plan on getting some more painting done and maybe if I’m lucky get some of those bulbs planted. We’ll see.

I hope where ever you are you have a wonderful day. :)

Peace Out Girl Scouts,

Pumpkin Gooey Butter Cake

Pumpkin Gooey Butter CakeWe’ve made this pumpkin gooey butter cake for Thanksgiving dessert for as long as I can remember. Why mess with perfection, right? And you pretty much know with gooey in the title of the recipe, it’s going to be freakin fantastic. And oh it is.

Just know that you might have to cut back on Thanksgiving seconds {or thirds} to save room for this, otherwise you might eat so much you’ll hurt. Not that I would know from experience or anything. But man-oh-man it is awesome. It kicks pumpkin pie’s butt. Yep, I said it.

fresh eggsIngredients For the cake:
1 yellow cake mix
1 egg
1 stick butter, melted

Pumpkin Gooey Butter CakeIngredients For the filling:
1 {8 oz} package cream cheese, softened
1 {15 oz} can pumpkin
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 stick butter, melted
3 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

Pumpkin Gooey Butter Cake

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 F.

In a stand mixer, combine the cake mix, egg, and butter and mix well. Pour mixture into the bottom of a lightly greased 13×9 baking dish. Set aside.

In a separate bowl, beat the cream cheese and pumpkin together until smooth. Slowly add in the eggs, vanilla, and butter, and beat together until combined. Carefully add in the powdered sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and mix well. Spread pumpkin mixture over cake batter and bake for 45 minutes. Center will still be a little bit gooey, hence the name.

Serve with lots of whipped cream.

The Evolution of Fruit and Vegetables

The Evolution of Fruit and Vegetables

Recently, One Hundred Dollar a Month reader, Tiffany, sent me a link on Facebook to an article about the ways fruits and vegetables have changed over thousands of years.  Turns out, the uber sweet fruits that we take for granted today haven’t always been the dessert-like whole food that we have come to expect.  Maybe that’s why our ancestors were so fit?  Not only did their fruit have less naturally occurring sugars, but it took them a heck of a lot more effort to get them to an edible state.  {Can you say beating the outside of the original watermelon with a stone until its thick skin broke open, revealing a tiny, bitter bit of fruit?  Uh, sounds exhausting.}

The article broke down a couple of the most common fruits.  Let me just blow your mind with these little tidbits:  The original peach {sounds gangsta :) } was about 1/4 the size of what we know peaches to be now.  It had waxy skin, was 36% stone, and only about 64% of the flesh was edible.  Corn was NOTHING like the big ear of potentially buttery goodness we eat today.  It was about 9 mm long, and it tasted like a dry potato.  Oh, and just to get into it, it had to be hammered repeatedly.

After reading the article, I’ve decided, we’re spoiled.  We have only the sweetest, juiciest varieties of fruits and veggies.  In fact, we ship them in from all over the world just to make sure.  I think it has gotten even worse since I was a wee kid.  When I was younger, the fruit was primarily what grew best in your region.  We just didn’t have access to everything under the sun {literally}.  How about you, do you remember eating a certain fruit or veggie as a kid that tastes different now?

12 Goals for the New Year Week 44 of 52

I came up with 12 goals I’d like to accomplish this year with the hopes of being able to cross one off my list per month to make them more manageable. I thought a great way to hold myself accountable to the things I want to accomplish this year would be to do a weekly update.

After all, we all need a little help staying motivated sometimes. Here’s how I am doing so far:

tools on counter top

1. Clean, de-clutter and organize my entire home in 30 days or less. – So far this year I cleaned my closet, organized my kitchendecluttered my bathroom, organized my office, gutted the garage, and tackled the laundry room.  But that was at the old house. 

Cameron and John Voight are back at the house today working on the kitchen and trim. Fingers crossed they’ll get a bunch of work done today and go home without shooting themselves with a nail gun. The gas guy is suppose to stop by as well and hook up the cook-top {fingers crossed!}.

2. Fit into the same jeans I wore 8 years ago when we moved into our {now old} house. Mission Accomplished!

I’m not sure if it was because of the It Works Ultimate Body Applicator {I wrapped twice} or working as Chino the Handyman’s sidekick for the past month, but the muffin top is gone. Let’s hope she doesn’t come back!

root vegetables

3. Travel.   So far this year I have been to Boston, London, Paris, Portland, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Maryland, West Virginia, Virginia and Victoria B.CLast week I discovered I hate sitting in the middle seat on an airplane. :(

iPhone text message

4. Send my daughter to college without having a nervous breakdown thus spending a week in bed sobbing.  Done!

invisalign

5. Get 3 new teeth. – Not yet.

6. Pay off my car. Done! I’m pretty sure the Volvo wagon was the best car that was ever invented.

primitive hooked rug

7. Finish this primitive folk art rug I started 4 years ago. Finished! It took me 6 months but I’m done {I’m working on a second one and I hope to have it finished by Thanksgiving}.

8. Do something together as a family ever Sunday. I got home late but we did manage to get a few more house projects done but for the most part it was a pretty lazy day.

9.  Secret Plan #1 - Sell our house. It felt like it took us forever, but we were finally able to downsize both our home and yard and let me tell you Bob, it feels good. Really, really good.

10. Secret Plan #2 Buy a smaller house.  Done!

11. Secret Plan #3 – Working on it. ;)

old tin pie plate

12. Convince the HH we should buy a Salt Box Style House in Colonial Williamsburg. Done! We didn’t buy a house in Colonial Williamsburg, but I did find us a vacation house on the east coast and we LOVE it. A giant galvanized bowl, an old tin pie plate and 2 stoneware mugs were my latest finds at the local thrift store. Buying second hand is fun!

jiffy pots under lights

13. Spend at least 1 hour a day working in my garden.  On the agenda this week: grow some sprouts and baby my basil plants so that when the kitchen is all finished in a few weeks I can have a mini indoor garden. :)

So there you have it, my goals for the new year.

How about YOU? How are your 2014 goals coming along?

~Mavis

P.S. YES, I know I wrote down 13 goals. I’m fairly certain I won’t be able to attain one of them. {gee, I wonder which one?} :) But I wanted to add it in there anyway because I believe in miracles.

dark laundry room tile

Well just say I’m feeling much better after yesterdays whine-fest. ;) I painted a boatload of walls, ate well and  got 8 hours of sleep last night. Who could ask for more, right? ;)

Well, I have a quick question for you… which tile do you like better for a laundry room floor? The lighter tile on the left, or the darker tile on the right? Keep in mind my washer and dryer and laundry cupboards are white. Decisions, decisions.

Only 23 days to go until this remodel is over. WahooO!

Thanksgiving Planning Timeline and Checklist

Thanksgiving Planning Timeline and Checklist

Can you believe it’s time to shift into holiday planning already?  Seriously, where did the time go?!

Thanksgiving is less than 4 weeks away, and if you plan on hosting this year, it is time to start checking things off of your to-do list.

In an effort to stay organized, I decided to break up the holiday chores by week.  That way, I know exactly what I need to do, and it doesn’t all seem overwhelming.

Cuisinart roasting pan

3 Weeks Before

Plan your menu.  Decide which recipes you plan to make and make sure you can pull them all off {i.e. make sure you have the oven space and time}.  Also, make sure you have everything you need to make the dinner.  The first time I hosted a Thanksgiving, I had to go out and buy a roasting pan, baster, meat thermometer, etc.

Make a giant master grocery list.  This will give you time to watch for sales, etc., if you find great deals on items on your list, go ahead and pick them up over the next few weeks.  Any items that don’t go on sale, you can get the weekend before Thanksgiving.

Write down a list of all of the recipe preps you can do ahead of time.

If you order a free-range turkey, now is the time to reserve your bird.  Send out invites, make phone calls, email, etc. your guest list.  You will want to give everyone plenty of time to R.S.V.P. so you don’t waste money on unnecessary food.

Pull out your holiday decor {if you have some} and set it up.

2 Weeks Before

If you go potluck style, make sure to assign what your guests will bring now, so that you don’t include it in your planning.

It’s also a good time to go over your table settings.  Do you have enough?  Did some of your linens get ruined last year?  Replace these all now, when stress level is low.  If you do a centerpiece on your table, now is a great time to make it/buy it {unless it’s fresh flowers, of course}.  The days right before the big show are always chaotic, might as well check what you can off the list now.

Thanksgiving-Turkey-Cookies1{Thanksgiving Turkey Cookies}

The Weekend Before

Time to do the grocery shopping.  If you buy a frozen turkey, it’s best just to stick it in the fridge now so it will thaw by Thursday.  You may have to make a final trip to the grocery store a little later in the week, because if you are like me, you will inevitably forget something, but at least the bulk of the shopping will be done.

Now is a good time to clean the house too.  If you are planning on overnight guests, this might be a bit more work–make sure you have enough clean towels, etc.

Tuesday

You can make anything that can be chilled in the fridge today {think:  cranberry sauce}.  This will make the actual day of much less hectic.

cranberry-apple-pie-recipe

Wednesday

By making Wednesday a full day, you will be able to actually enjoy your guests on Thursday.  Start with a last minute dash to the grocery store.  Grab anything you might have forgotten.  You can also pick up fresh flowers if you are using them for your centerpiece.

Wash and chop onions, celery, etc. You can store them in the fridge until you need them tomorrow.  You can even assemble your stuffing and store it in the fridge until tomorrow.

Bake pies and desserts.  For pies {like apple}, best served warm, just warm them right before serving.

You can also make the dinner rolls today.  Wrap them in foil tomorrow and rewarm them in the oven, if you’d like.

Set the table Wednesday night after dinner.  I always make the kiddos eat at the bar on Thursday morning.  That way, Thursday, all I have to do is cook and present the bird Martha Stewart style to my guests {on a big platter, wearing a dress and a smile–ha!}

If you serve wine with dinner, make sure to chill white wine over night.

sweet potato casserole recipe

Thanksgiving Day

First off, Happy Thanksgiving.  Second, pour yourself a glass of bourbon, you may need it–in about 5 hours your house will be full of family, friends, and chaos.  Kidding!  Obviously you’re happy to have them!

Put in the turkey.  While it is roasting, prep and make any side dishes.

About 30 minutes before guests arrive, set out hors d’oeuvres if you made them.

When the bird is done, let it rest while you make the gravy–which should be your final step before calling everyone to eat.

Right before you sit down to eat, pop in any desserts that may need to be warmed.

Sit down and enjoy the fact that you have great food and people to share it with.

Indoor Gardening – Seeds to Sprouts in 5 Days or Less

  • Like on Facebook

growing sprouts at home

One of the things I’ve been struggling with during this whole remodel process is the fact that I just can’t go outside and garden anytime I feel like it. And it’s starting to wear on my nerves. I’m getting cranky. Really, really, cranky.

For starters, it’s fall, which means the daylight hours for working outside are pretty limited to begin with. Basically, if I can’t get my garden chores done between 8 am and 4 pm they’re not going to get done.

Which wouldn’t be a problem under normal circumstances because I could just put them off to the next day, but I don’t have that luxury right now. When the workers are here I have to keep Lucy upstairs in the office with me {while I work on the blog}, or take her to doggy day care so I can help out with the remodel downstairs, and usually those are during daylight hours.

But even on the days when the workers aren’t here, getting outside to garden is a struggle as well. The whole house is torn up right now and Lucy can’t really roam around or watch me from the windows for more than 5 minutes at a time without getting into some sort of puggle trouble. Plus, there’s no where for her to lounge. We have no couches!! Yet, my list of garden chores keeps growing, and nothing is getting checked off the list.

So this morning I decided to start some sprouts, indoors, on my new kitchen windowsill. Sure the window area not be trimmed out and put together yet, but I felt like if I didn’t do something garden related, I would majorly freak out. {Deep breath.} In doing so, I unknowingly made a few menu plan decisions for this week as well. {High five!}

Indoor Gardening - Seeds to Sprouts

So this week I’m growing mung bean sprouts for our favorite stir fry dish, alfalfa sprouts for an egg salad sandwich, and sprouted garbanzo beans for a broccoli rabb and bacon dish. The cook top should be hooked up tomorrow and if not, I’ll just whip up the recipes in the electric skillet.

botanical interests seed sprouter

If you’ve never sprouted seeds before, it’s ridiculously easy. Simply soak your seeds in water overnight {about 8 to 12 hours} and then place them in your sprouting container. Rinse at least twice daily until sprouts have reached the length you desire {about 5 days for me}. I’ll share my progress each afternoon this week so you can see just how easy this whole sprouting thing is.

Garden therapy, I think we could all use a little right now. ;)

How about YOU? Are you into sprouts?

~Mavis

P.S. Most companies suggest that before you actually start your sprouts, to disinfect the seeds by placing them in a mixture of 2% bleach solution {1 cup water to 1tsp. bleach} for 15 minutes.  From there you simply rinse the seeds thoroughly and you are ready to go.
