obdurate

Word of the Day: Obdurate  Definition: Hard, unyielding, stubbornly wicked Used in a sentence: He remained obdurate despite all the help given him.

Happy Monday everyone, how was your weekend? I was planning on staying inside all day yesterday to work on blog posts be then the sun came out and well, I ended up in the garden. Hey, I’ll take the sun shinning all day in February when I can get it. ;)

I planted 2 more trees {shhhhh} and worked a little more on the garden path. While I was out there my 85 year old neighbor lady came through the back of the garden and down my hill to chat a little… it was so CUTE!!! She even offered me some of her chive plants. :)

Well, have a great day everyone, enjoy the sun if you’ve got it.

Freezer Pancakes: Making Pancakes in Bulk

freezer pancakes

Once in awhile I’ll realize that things I’ve been doing for years could have been done just a tiny bit differently and saved me tons of time and money. Let’s take freezer pancakes for instance. The gist is this: you make pancakes, lots of pancakes, and you freeze them. I make pancakes all. the. time. So why haven’t I routinely made an extra batch since I’m spending the time to cook and dirty up my kitchen, make a bunch of extras and throw them in the freezer.

freezing pancakes

So that’s what I’ve been doing and let me tell you Bob, I’m in love. All we have to do now is pull a few out of the freezer, pop them in the microwave or toaster and breakfast is served. I freeze so many other things, I’m not sure why I haven’t done this forever.

Here’s what you need:

A pancake recipe {check out my favorites below}
Freezer storage bags
A freezer

Here’s how you do it:

Make 2 or 3 times the regular recipe {or more if that suits your fancy}. Let the pancakes cool a bit, bag them up and throw them in the freezer. Seriously. Your life just got easier.

Mavis vs the HOA Part 2

hoa letter

Last week I received a letter from the HOA informing me I was in violation for the CC&R’s for cutting down a few rhododendrons and was asked to submit a “garden plan.”

garden plan

So I did. Basically I wanted to install a laurel hedge in the front of the house, a viburnum hedge on the side and four cedar garden boxes alongside the house right outside my kitchen door for easy access. But because the garden boxes would be visible from the front of my house, I decided to go ahead and add a “plan b” just in case the idea of seeing vegetables growing from the road would FREAK SOMEONE OUT.

upper garden photos

When we were first thinking about purchasing our house, my initial thought was to install a small vegetable garden in the upper lawn because the ground was nice and level and it would be secluded.

garden plot before pictures

And then after moving in and walking around the property a bit more I realized hauling a wheelbarrow up a hill was going to be a bit of a challenge, and quickly decided having the garden on the side yard would be much easier.

Well, guess what? I received my answer from the HOA yesterday.

hoa letter

It looks like I’ll be planting my vegetable garden in the upper lawn after all. Which really, won’t be a big deal once I get the garden soil hauled up there. At least I get to grow some vegetables, right?

Who knows, maybe I’ll start a trend here. ;)

Keep Calm and Garden On,

~Mavis

The $20/$20 Challenge: Cari From Washington Shares Her Pantry and Canning Stockpile

  • Like on Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Print Friendly and PDF
  • Pin It

cari2Another great submission for the $20/$20 Challenge. I’m loving all these canning stockpiles. Makes me super motivated to get on the ball and can more! You guys are inspiring. Here’s Cari’s story:

Hi Mavis,

I thought I would send you some pictures of my pantry as part of your $20/$20 pantry challenge. As far as background: I’m mostly stay-at-home-mom to twin 6 1/2-year-old boys, and I work part time as a dental hygienist. My husband and I have lived in western Washington for the past 13 1/2 years. I spent a lot of time growing up with my grandmothers who both lived through the depression. I was taught to use every ounce, crumb and drop of things. It does drive some of my family bonkers! {What can I say, raspberry freezer jam in re-purposed margarine tubs always makes me think of my grandma!}

Cari1The first picture is of my garden. This was the first year we had a garden and decided to go with some raised beds. It was really eye-opening to see how much produce could come from such a small garden! Most of the seeds I used this year were free! I found them in a roadside free donation box. Some of the plants were purchased this year. We purchased corn, jalepenos, onion starts, tomatoes and strawberries. We planted carrots, green beans, lettuce, basil, and oregano from seeds. My fails this year included lettuce, beats and kale.

I learned to can with my mom and grandma. So, every year I can jams, pickled green beans, relish, apple sauce and whatever I can get my hands on! I also ended up at the dehydrator this year and I’ve been playing with dehydrating different fruits and vegetables.

cari2The second picture is from a major canning project done with my extended family. The past two years we have gone tuna fishing out of Westport, Washington. This year 10 people went which was a full boat. They came back with a literal pick up truck bed full of fresh tuna loins. So, we spent the rest of the weekend canning together. We had six pressure cookers going and canned over 800 pints & 1/2 pints of tuna in two days!

cari3The third picture is of my “main” pantry. It is located in the detached garage at our property. So yes, I do have to walk outside to go to my pantry. But, it works for now. My dream is to add on & have a pantry inside my house.  You’ll find sugars, different flours, dried goods like beans & rice, lots of canned tuna, homemade wine from my brother-in-law and anything that I happened to can over the years time.

cari4Also in our pantry, you will our meat packaging material. My husband is a hunter and we fished together as a family. About three years ago we decided to start packaging all own meats. We couldn’t find butcher we were happy with. So, we bought the equipment and started doing ourselves. We haven’t looked back. In fact, most of our family has started to do the same. Either smoking, canning or freezing their own meats. The next challenge I would like to take is to make my own sausage in coming years.

cari5My final picture shows what our freezer looks like. It’s generally stuffed to the gills at the end of fall with our hunting & fishing activities. I actually challenged myself in August 2013 to stop buying meat at Costco. Needless to say, I crave chicken! A splurge for me is a bag of frozen chicken breasts at Costco.

I do have to admit that I’m not the best meal planner. I have a tendency to have 5 to 6 general ideas of what I’m going to cook for dinner on any given week. I have a list that I keep on my phone and check them off as I complete them. Then, when it comes around time to meal plan I pushed the “show completed” button and up pops everything I’ve cooked over the past several months.

I generally select from that list what I have on hand in my freezer or pantry. I do try to account for specific cravings that my family members may have. Like my kids infatuation with boxed mac & cheese! I also like to play a game with myself to see how long I can go without making a trip to the store.

As far shopping goes, I have a tendency to shop at Fred Meyer’s and Costco as my mainstays. I do also like to go to Winco on occasion to stock up on bulk spices and other sundries. And I also like to hit Trader Joe’s several times a year for a few items. I shop once every two weeks and sometimes I have to go every week depending on how much my children, the neighbor kid, their cousins and friends are eating at any given point in time.

I’m always curious to see how other people live and how they run their lives. I think that’s why I love the blogging world so much. I get to see a good picture of what other people do in their day-to-day. I hope this email is giving you a good little glimpse into our life and our habits.

Have a great day!
Cari

mitigate

Word of the Day:  Mitigate Definition: To moderate, soften, excuse, lessen Used in a sentence: In this instance the facts would mitigate the circumstances.

Hello Sunday. :)

I was planning on putting together a rug hooking post yesterday but got a little sidetracked. I should have it up a littler later this morning though for those of you interested. It looks like it is going to be another wet and windy day today so I think instead of gardening, I’ll head over to the Home Depot and see any new plants have arrived. Some people love clothing… I love plants. ha!

Have a great day,

Mavis

organized garage

1. Get Organized.

I finally got around to organizing the garage last week. Well, most of it anyway. ;) I was also able to get out storage closet cleaned out and find a bunch more things to donate to the Goodwill.

iphone stopwatch

2. Run, walk or crawl a Marathon, half marathon, 10k, and 5k race this year.

Lucy the puggle princess and I went on a few long walks this week. I still have not signed up for any races, but I’m hoping too next month.

master bathroom remodel

3. Remodel our Master Bathroom, Master Closet and Monkey Boy’s Bathroom.

When Chino was here last week we decided to go ahead and install a window above where the toilet is now and a toilet room where he is standing. We are planning on starting the second week in March {after he finishes up Mrs. HB’s kitchen remodel}. The HH and Monkey Boy are planning on doing most of the demo work to save a few bucks so the next couple of weeks should be interesting. :)

4. Finish Every Room in Our House.

5. Turn Spare Bedroom into a Cozy Home Office Space for myself. I am currently working out of the HH’s office and he wants it back {even though all that’s in there is a desk and chair}.

creating new garden beds

6. Create a Vegetable Garden. My plans on on hold until I hear back from the HOA.

7. Build a Path into the Hillside for Easy Access to the Upper Garden.

flexrake

8. Limit my personal spending to $100 a month.

I am in LOVE with my new Flexrake Flower and Vegetable Tiller. I don’t know why I didn’t buy one sooner. 
dove chocolate

I stopped by Target to pick up some shampoo and well, somehow a bag of Dove chocolates jumped into my cart. :) They are all gone now but TOTALLY worth the splurge in my opinion.

Total spent so far this month $17.11 Still have $82.89

In January I Spent $84.33

thrift store donations

9. Purge… Weekly. Find 10 things each week to donate to the thrift store.

3 Sundae dishes, an old pair of glasses, a gas fireplace key, a creme brulee’ torch {somehow we had 3} and a few other random things made their way to the Goodwill bag this week.

Read 52 Books in 52 Weeks Challenge – February

10. Read 1 book a week. – My goal is to read 52 books this year

I’m saving 3 of my books to read on a long flight I have planned for later this month but I’m hoping to finish The Last Lecture and As You Wish before I take off.

primitive hooked bunny rabbit rug

11. Slow Down. -

Rug hooking seems to be catching my attention lately. I finished this primitive Easter Bunny rug last night. I think I am going to back it with some wool fabric and turn it into a pillow.

12. Canning – Life was sort of crazy last year and I feel like I sorta fell off the canning wagon and I’d like to hop back on it this year. Ideally, I’d like to open my pantry at the end of the year and have rows and rows of home canned goodness staring back at me.

Did you set any goals for this year? If so, how are they coming along?

Should Hand-Washing Be Required at Eateries?

Should Hand-Washing Be Required at Eateries

While perusing NPR the other day, I found an article about a Senator from North Carolina who feels that our country has gone overboard with regulations.  He cited the hand-washing requirement for restaurant employees as being a prime example of the over-regulation by the government.  He felt that if restaurants posted a sign that stated that they don’t require hand-washing, the market would naturally sort itself out {meaning, people bothered by the no hand-washing would stop frequenting the establishment and the lost business would be its own incentive.  {I couldn’t help but wonder, though, if we require establishments to post a sign saying they DON’T require hand-washing, aren’t we kind of regulating something in a different way?}

In fairness, the Senator’s point was not that he loves dirty hands, but that businesses should regulate themselves.  Still, hand-washing is a perfect example of one of those regulations peeps might really appreciate–but maybe not?  Maybe I’m the odd-ball?

Either way, I wondered what YOU all thought?  I personally think hand-washing before preparing food is kind of cool.

blight

Word of the Day: Blight Definition: Injurious, destroying disease Used in a sentence: Some years ago a blight struck the walnut trees.

Yesterday the puggle princess and I spent the day indoors dyeing wool and drawing out my latest rug hooking project. I’m thinking about putting a rug hooking tutorial together but I’m trying to figure out how to break it down so it won’t be too much information at once. Maybe a post on how to dye wool, how to draw out a pattern, and how to actually hook a rug.

Sometimes putting things into words that you know how to do without thinking is hard.

Anywho, I hope you have a wonderful Friday. :)
