California Implements New Standards for Egg Production

green eggs

Have  you noticed that the price of eggs went up recently?  I thought at first it was a holiday thing–grocery stores looking to cash in on holiday baking.  Turns out, it is largely in part due to a new Californian standard set into effect on January 1st.  Eggs sold in California will now have to come from chickens that have at least 116 square inches of floor/cage space.  And while that still doesn’t sound like much to me, it is apparently double what chickens have previously had.

So why are we seeing the higher costs?  Well, long story long, it breaks down like this:  As the result of the new standards, egg producers in California have decreased their flock size, as increasing their space would be too costly.  Sooooo, egg production IN California has gone down by about 23% over the past two years {other factors contribute as well}.  The lowered production has increased demand, and farmers all over the country have found that they can comply with California’s new standards and then charge Californian grocers a premium for the eggs.  The result is that the shortage drives prices up for all of us.  According to the article I read, prices have increased between 35-70% in California.

So, while eggs are still a fairly inexpensive source of protein, it looks like egg prices will be on the rise for the foreseeable future.  Meanwhile, the ladies will be able to stretch their legs a little more, so I guess, while still a small step, it might be a step in the direction of more humane and natural food production processes.

Have egg prices gone up in your neck of the woods?

lucy the puggle dog

Yesterday while I was mapping out my new garden plots and Lucy the puggle dog decided to supervise via an upstairs window. Since I decided to place my garden beds alongside the house, the puggle trouble can now watch me from above while I’m outside working. I LOVE that! Awww Lucy, you are the greatest dog ever.

We are planning to install an invisible type fence later this spring, but for now, I think she’s happy popping her head behind the curtains and watching me from above.

Have a great Thursday everyone,

 Mavis

Blueberry Lemon Jam

blueberry lemon jam recipe

Clearly, January is not blueberry season. But, if you are a frugalicious homemaker like me, you probably have a boatload of blueberries tucked away in your freezer from last summer. No berries? No problem. Just stop by Costco the next time you’re out and grab a giant bag of frozen blueberries. This recipe for blueberry lemon jam rocks anytime of the year.

blueberry lemon jam recipe

Ingredients

3 pound blueberries {I thawed mine overnight in the fridge}
2 pounds granulated sugar
1 cup lemon juice
1 cinnamon stick

blueberry jam

Directions

Bring a boiling-water canner, 3/4 full with water, to simmer. Wash jars {I used both Weck and Ball canning jars} and screw bands in hot soapy water; rinse with warm water. Pour boiling water over flat lids in saucepan off the heat. Let stand in hot water until ready to use. Drain well before filling.

Combine the blueberries, sugar, cinnamon stick and lemon juice in a 5-quart nonreactive pan. Cover and bring to a boil then reduce the heat a fast simmer and cook uncovered, for 10-15 minutes stirring frequently.

Test to see if it has “set” by spooning a bit onto a cold plate.  If it has formed a bit of a skin and started to give a bit like goopy jell-o, you’re good to go, if not, cook for a bit longer.

When jam is ready, remove the cinnamon stick and ladle immediately into prepared jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of tops. Wipe jar rims and threads. Cover with two-piece lids. Screw bands on {see how to use Weck jars}. Place jars on elevated rack in a canner. Lower rack into canner. {Water must cover jars by 1 to 2 inches. Add boiling water, if necessary.}

canning blueberry jam

Cover; bring water to gentle boil. Process 10 min. Remove jars and place upright on towel to cool completely. After the jars have cooled, check the seals by pressing middles of lids with finger. If lids spring back, lids are not sealed and refrigeration is necessary. Yields about {8} 1/2 pints.

Pantry Organization Ideas – Monique’s $20/$20 Challenge Pictures

3The pictures keep rolling in and the great ideas right along with them! Monique walks us through how she plans her weeks out to make her life a little easier. She has some great tips. Here’s her story:

Hi Mavis!

I’ve been following your blog for a couple years now, and I love reading up on your challenges and tribulations, while you go through all your transitions and gardens and the new homes! I’ve moved once during my following of your blog, and both times have been in a small apartment.

9I started in a one bedroom, which made food storage nearly impossible, and now we’re in a two bedroom, which is better, but still difficult. We have a hall closet that we converted to a small pantry. I cant really garden, except for over the edge of the deck planters, which limits me to a couple of radish varieties, carrots and if I’m feeling adventurous, tomatoes and cucumbers.

For food, we do a bit of a mix. I’m all about pre-planning. There are two of us in the house and a demon cat! She’s super picky, so we have to be very specific about food and liter for her. We have many nieces and nephews under the age of 7 {hence the second room} and they are over a lot, so there always has to be snack foods readily available.

5I tend to coupon for convenience snacks and healthy foods alike, sticking to all natural {mostly Bob’s Red Mill,  Joes and Winco} for my baking and dried good. I buy meats in bulk {From Zaycon if I can!} and you’ll notice my freezer doesn’t have much in the way of processed foods {the mini corn dogs and fries were a sneak in by my other half when the nephews were over for a visit last weekend!} I bulk make freezer meals like shepherd’s pies, lasagnas, and chicken enchiladas to make my weeks even easier. A couple weeks ago the cat pulled the plug on our tiny little freezer and I had to start pretty much from scratch…so its about half empty right now. Thank goodness we caught it before EVERYTHING defrosted!1

There’s also A LOT of junk food in the pantry right now because after Christmas clearance is my weakness. And it’ll probably sit there until I use it all in baking and bring it to work. Good thing there are 50 lbs of flour down there at the bottom of my hall pantry, huh?? I’ve also got two 1L bottles down there with the condiments that look like vodka but are actually homemade Madagascar bourbon vanilla extract. I’ve been brewing them for about 14 months and they’re amazing. Whenever I go to duty free I stock up and make my own!

We both work in a call center, so we’re away for typically 8-10 hour days, 5 days a week. A lot of times our schedules don’t align, so here’s how I make our food lifestyle work for us and keep us eating healthy, at home goodness, 7 days a week:

2I make a meal plan, usually for a two week period. I only plan out the dinner meals but I do a 14 day stretch, and I budget in a splurge day, or a pizza night in there. If I don’t, it all goes down in flames and we will cheat…and that’s just no good.

I ask: What do you want for lunches next week? And we buy the fresh veggies and lunch meats to accommodate that meal plan, typically I’ll buy enough lunch meat for a couple weeks and freeze it…or MORE if its on a great sale. My tip is to ask your deli slicer to slice it thin and lay it flat. Don’t be afraid to ask for them to put it in a separate bag based on how much you’re buying.

On Sundays I pre-make the bulk of our weekly dinners. That way, when we get home, all we have to do is make sides or veggies. Example meal plan: This week we’re having roast beef with mashed potatoes and broccoli tonight and there will be leftovers for another night during the week. I’m also pre-making chicken enchiladas {from that shredded taco meat you saw in my freezer} to have for two more nights this week. We’re babysitting on Thurs, so that’s a splurge night and Friday is a work event. That’s all week, done in only an hour of prep, and I’ll only have to make broccoli and reheat enchiladas and refried beans during the week.

4On Sundays I’ll also pop in some sort of a baked pastry, usually banana bread with walnuts or some flax, etc. to make it a healthy morning snack before heading out to work.

Keep in mind as well that my shopping time is minimal. I do two shops a month for all household items: groceries, toiletries, fuel, etc. For produce I pop into the local farm market once a week and grab the staples for that week!

7Thanks for doing such an awesome incentive, and giving back to the community. I find that a lot of my couponing goes to the local pantries as well, since I don’t typically use it all.

Thanks,
Monique

How Often Do You Wash Your Bed Sheets?

  • Like on Facebook

how often should I wash my bed sheets

I’ve always washed my sheets once a week…in hot water.  One, because it feels so amazing {even if it’s only in my mind} to crawl into freshly washed sheets on a regular basis.  And two, because it turns out you are not the only one in there {I’m not talking the HH here}.  Think I am about to dish something juicy?  Think again, peeps {seriously, what kind of girl do you think I am?!}  You’re also sharing your bed with dust mites–and well, how do I put this?  Their poop.  Yeppers, anywhere dust can settle, so do dust mites.  Washing sheets in warm or hot water kills most of the critters that take up residence in between the sheets–washing them weekly will give them very little time to build up.

If bugs weren’t enough, consider this:  we shed about 1 million dead skin cells per day.  If you get your 8 hours of sleep in, you could reasonably be sluffing off 1/3 of your skin shedding quota in bed. Grody, I know.  Here’s the other thing, we are oily.  We secrete oil and sweat as we sleep, and then our sheets courteously shimmy it off of us.

Bottom line:  Humans are gross.  Bugs are gross.  Wash your sheets weekly.

Friendly tip from me to you,

~ Mavis

Master Bathroom Remodel Ideas | What Do You Think?

maple espresso bathroom cabinets

Yesterday I stopped by a house Chino the Handyman recently completed and fell in love with the master bathroom. Girly Girl designed it of course {she has such good taste}.bathroom vanity maple espresso

The layout of the double vanity is about the same size as the outdated one we have now. I LOVE the color of the cabinets, but I’m not so much in love with the linen cupboard to the right of the unit. It feels like the person using the sink on the right side would feel a bit squished while brushing their teeth {first world problems I know}. So I’m thinking maybe an extra row of drawers and a little more counter space would be a better fit for us.

I also think those 12″ x 24″ tiles look pretty groovy as well.

bathroom mirror penny tile background

Moving on to the mirror. Now normally, I am a big fan of framed mirrors, but this one, set on a penny tile background has just enough bling factor to make you feel like you’re in a hotel bathroom suite. Comfortable, but not too flashy. Or trendy. penny tile bathroom vanity

The sinks are pretty fabulous too. {I would go with a chrome faucet instead of bronze hardware though}.built in bathtub shelf

And then there is the tub and shower area. Don’t you just love that built in shelf? I think I might need one of those. I’m not exactly sure what I’d out in there, but it looks cool.

built in shelf shower

Here’s a close up of the penny tile as well as the tile they used on the floor. What do you think? I like how Chino and Girly Girl used the same tile throughout the entire bathroom. It seems pretty neutral, but not boring, or plain. I think 3 -5 years from now this look will still be in style.

toilet room 12 by 24 tile

Oh, and the toilet room. I would have a higher toilet in there of course. ;)

Yes the bathroom is for us, but there is the re-sale factor to consider here as well. So my questions to you are:

1. Do you think the color of the cabinets are too dark?

2. Do you like the penny tile/mirror combo? Do you think it’s too flashy? Too trendy?

3. What do you think about the built in shelf above the bathtub? Cool? Useless?

4. Tile counter tops… love, hate? {12″ x 24″ were used}

It’s getting down to crunch time and we’ll need to order the supplies for our bathroom remodel soon. So thanks in advance for all you help. You rock!

Kid-Approved Crunchy Fish Stick Recipe

Kid-Approved Crunchy Fish Sticks

I know those store bought fish sticks are a staple in many American kitchens. I get it. They are fast and easy, and kids gobble them up. But if you read some of those labels, the contents will shock you. Not the best thing to be feeding small bellies {or any sized bellies for that matter!}. So here is a healthier version that kids will still love!

cod fish

Ingredients

1 cup bread crumbs {you could use seasoned for an extra kick!}
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning
1 cup flour
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1.5 pounds cod fillets, cut into strips

Kid-Approved Crunchy Fish Stick

Directions

Preheat oven to 400F. Mix bread crumbs, salt, paprika and lemon pepper, and pour onto a large plate {plates with raised edges or lips woke best}. Place flour and egg in separate shallow bowls. Make a fish stick assembly line, placing the flour plate first, followed by the egg bowl, the bread crumb bowl and a baking sheet {coated with cooking spray}. Dip the fish first in the flour, then the egg and then the break crumb mixture, pressing the fish into the coating to help it stick. Carefully place now coated fish sticks on a baking sheet and bake for about 12 minutes, turning once. Fish sticks are done when the fish flakes when cut. Enjoy!

A New Year and Thoughtful Spending With the 3/50 Project

3 50 project

Have you heard of the 3/50 Project?  It’s basically a grass roots attempt to save local businesses from getting pushed into extinction by national chain stores.  You are supposed to ask yourself, “what THREE independently owned businesses would you miss if they disappeared?”  Then, it gives the statistic that if just 1/2 of the employed population would spend $50 each month at a locally owned business, it would “generate more than $42.6 billion in revenue.”

The general idea is that if you spent $50 a month at 3 separate local businesses, you would create a pretty significant impact.  Here’s the statistics they throw out:  ”For every $100 spent in independent stores, $68 of it returns to the community through taxes, payroll, and other expenditures.”  Compare that to only $43 at a national chain store.

So, if the new year has got you thinking about how to have a more meaningful impact with your spending, you may want to give the 3/50 project a try.

Here’s to a year of more mindful living,

Mavis
