mornings with mavis

Well GOOD MORNING.

Sorry for ditching you like that yesterday afternoon but there was simply no time left to blog. Another 15 yards of bark arrived, I had to take someone to the airport, I picked up a few more fruit trees, some NEW baby chicks {!} played with Lucy the wonder dog, and forgot to make dinner. Weeeeee!

Mama said there’d be days like this.

I’ll try to do better today.

Make it a great one, only a few hours left until it’s the WEEKEND! Yay!

Lucy the Puggle Dog Goes to the Vet

puggle dog

Lucy is officially 3 months old. Yesterday I took her to the vet for her second round of vaccinations. She was incredibly brave and thought the whole thing was one big adventure.

flea comb

She didn’t even cry when the vet gave her a shot, took her temperature, or combed her coat for fleas {?}. I however looked the other way during the whole process. Even when the nice veterinarian asked me if I had brought her a sample. Ewwwwww.

No. I forgot. I’m Sorry. I’ll try and remember next time, I muttered.

Then Lucy and I went home.

kale plants

I re-potted some kale and ate sliced peaches out of a can.

tan puggle puppy

Lucy chewed on the door mat.

lucy the puggle dog 11 weeks

Life is good. I love this sweet little dog more than I ever thought I could. She is such a great companion, even though she needs constant attention and likes to bite my socks.

puppy dog run

Since moving her bed into the crate {like many of you suggested} she now has plenty of room to run around and play. Every morning I set her toys outside of her crate, and every night when we put her to bed she drags all her stuffed animals back to bed with her just like a little kid.

I’m guessing this is totally normal, and we should start to see cat and dog fancy posters up on the sides of her fence anytime soon.

Animals are cool.

10 Cool Uses for Lemons

10 cool uses for lemons

Every time I water my beee-autiful Meyer Lemon tree, I start to daydream about all of the ways to use the lemons.  And while right now, I can’t imagine not using my lemons to create something totally delicious, there are ton of practical uses for lemons.

Here’s 10 cool ways to put lemons to work:

  1. Degrease your pans.  Squeeze a little lemon juice in the pan and allow it to sit for 5 minutes.  For really stubborn/thick grease, add a little salt to the lemon mixture and gently rub the pan with a paper towel.
  2. Use as a natural bleach for laundry.  Add 1/2 cup to laundry during the rinse cycle and BOOM!  Brighter whites.
  3. Lighten hair without harsh chemicals.  Juice lemons, apply to hair, and then take a magazine out to bask in the sun for a bit.  The lemon and sun will gradually lighten your hair.
  4. Clean and deodorize your microwave.  Put 3 Tbsp. lemon juice and 1 cup of water in a microwave safe bowl.  Microwave on high for 5 minutes.  Wipe the inside down with a cloth.
  5. Keep fruits and guacamole from browning.  Squeeze a little lemon juice in guacamole or sliced apples to keep discoloration at bay.
  6. Freshen and sharpen your disposal.  Toss old lemon peels in the disposal and let them go for a spin.  You will be able to smell the fresh lemon scent right away.
  7. Dab on age spots, freckles, scars, etc. to lighten discoloration on skin.
  8. Disinfect and deodorize cutting boards.  Just cut a lemon in half and run the cut side across the board–wipe with a clean damp cloth.
  9. Use as an air freshener and winter humidifier.  Add juiced lemon and peels to a pot of water and simmer.  The whole house will smell uh-mazing.
  10. Keep cats out of your garden.  Grind up lemon peels and sprinkle them around the garden.  Cats hate citrus smells.

How about you, do you use lemons for anything besides eating?

St. Patrick’s Day Recipe: Guinness Black and Tan Brownies

Guinness Black & Tan Brownies recipe yum

If you are anything like me, when you see a good recipe in a magazine you tear it out, stuff it in a drawer {or binder} and save it for later. Well back in 2010 I spotted this recipe for Black & Tan brownies in Cooking Light magazine.

I re-discovered the recipe as I was pulling out  my recipe binder last year and quickly decided to whip up a batch for the HH seeing how he is Irish. I’ve made these brownies twice now.  The first time was with pecans and the second time without. Personally, I think they taste best with the pecans.  And I’m not all that into pecans.

The key to making these brownies is…

Read the directions thoroughly.  I tend to glance over recipes and not read every single direction.  However this one could be a little tricky.  So read through it a few times before you start.

Guinness Black  Tan Brownies recipe

Tan Brownies:

6 tablespoons butter, softened
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 1/2 ounces all-purpose flour {about 1 cup}
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped pecans {I left them out}
Cooking spray

Black Brownies:
3 ounces unsweetened chocolate, finely chopped
4 tablespoons butter
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup Guinness Stout
4 1/2 ounces all-purpose flour {about 1 cup}
1/4 teaspoon salt

Guinness Black & Tan Brownies

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

To prepare Tan Brownies

Beat 6 tablespoons of butter and the brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs and teaspoon vanilla until smooth. Next add in the flour, baking powder, and 1/4 teaspoon salt and stir well. Add in pecans {totally optional}. Pour the batter in to a  13 x 9–inch buttered baking pan {or use cooking spray}, making sure to spread the batter evenly. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes.

To prepare Black Brownies

Melt the chocolate and 4 tablespoons butter in a double broiler or in a microwave-safe bowl on HIGH for 30 seconds {or until melted}, stir until nice and smooth. Slowly add sugar until well combined. Add eggs, vanilla, and Guinness and stir until everything is combined. Add the flour and salt until the batter is well smooth and pour the mixture evenly over tan brownies.

Bake at 350 for 25 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted into center comes out almost clean. Cool for about an hour, and then cut into squares. Recipe Credit

Red Alert! Tooth Fairy Rates on the Rise

Tooth Fairy Rates on the Rise{Photo Credit}

I read a quick article last week that the Tooth Fairy’s average rate is on the rise–up nearly 15% from last year.  Kids are averaging $2.42 for their lost teeth.  HOLE.LEE.CAVITIES. BATMAN.

The first lost tooth seems to have a higher value than the subsequent teeth.

The article made made me wonder, what do you think is a fair exchange-rate for those little chompers?  Monkey Boy & The Girl’s tooth fairy never left the same thing twice {clever!}. Sometimes it was a pack of M&M’s, a silly straw or a dollar.  Personally, I think she just left what ever she had laying around the castle {or at least, I assume it’s a castle}.  How is it we know all of the in-and-outs of Santa, but the Tooth Fairy’s origins and real estate situation is really a mystery?

I totally tried to find more information about the Tooth Fairy’s history, but came up short.  I guess the Tooth Fairy has done a pretty decent job of shading her {or his?} identity–probably makes it easier to run daytime errands.

So, what do YOU think?  What’s the going rate at YOUR house?

Curious minds want to know,

Mavis

How to Grow Your Own Food – 2013 Garden Tally

grow Swiss chard in window box

This year I’m on a mission to grow 4,000 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables in my suburban backyard. In 2012 I was able to grow 2,028 pounds, and in 2013 I’m going double or nothing. I have absolutely no idea if I’ll be able to achieve my goal. But, as with any adventure, half the fun is getting there.   ~Mavis

mavis butterfield

Yesterday I harvested a wee bit of Swiss chard  from the front window box that sits under the office window. When I was cleaning up the garden beds last fall I thought overwintering the chard in a sheltered area in front of the house was a good idea. I had no idea the stuff would still be alive and kicking months later.

Who knew? Now I’m on a mission to see just how long the stuff will last.

Later this week I plan on moving the chard {and some I started from seed} to the backyard garden. Have YOU ever planted Swiss chard before? How long does the plant last anyway? Am I going to have to pass it down to my grandchildren?

Here is what I have harvested so far this year:

how to can beets{Heirloom beets pictured from last summer}

Beets - 14 ounces

The chickens found these beets for me earlier this winter. I plan on starting some heirloom beet seeds this weekend both in the garden and in some starter trays. I want to see which ones will grow faster. Anyone care to make a guess?

Parisian Carrots{Tonda di Parigi HEIRLOOM carrots pictured from last summer}

Carrots – 3 ounces

I am still working on my bag of Costco carrots I picked up at the beginning of the year. I don’t know about you, but I cannot wait to be able to pull up some fresh, homegrown carrots this summer.

egg count 2013

Egg Count – 270 {4.2 per day average}

Last week I was swimming in eggs. So I ended up trading my stash with Girly Girl for 2 packages of elk. Or deer. I’m not sure what it was exactly, but it was good. This week things are back to normal, and we are eating the eggs as fast as the chickens can lay them.

microgreens
Lettuce
– 6 ounces
Microgreens 5 ouncesMicrogreens are easy to grow anytime of year but they are especially fun to grow in winter as it is typically to cold to grow lettuce and greens outside. See those cute heart shaped leaves? Those are radish greens and they are super tasty too.

cool kitchen scale

Potatoes – 2 pounds 9 ounces

Potato planting is on the schedule for this weekend. I hope I bought enough.

bean sprouts

Sprouts - 8 ounces

I need to grow some more!

swiss chard

Swiss Chard 6 ounces

Think of all the money brides would save if they used bouquets of Swiss chard instead of roses. Hmmm.

cut wheatgrass

Wheatgrass - 7 ounces

Total Food Harvested in 2013: 5 pounds 10 ounces

Total Eggs Collected in 2013: 270

I guess I better hop to it if I’m growing to harvest 4,000 pounds of food this year. It’s not going to be easy, but hey, at least it will be fun. And who knows, I may end up with an awesome tan too.

Mavis Mail – Zoe From Pennsylvania Sends in Garden Photos

raised garden beds

A big THANK YOU to everyone who has sent in their photographs and stories. I hope by sharing other peoples pictures and stories here on One Hundred Dollars a Month we can all have an awesome garden this summer. Keep them coming!

************

Zoe lives in Pennsylvania and is pretty much a rock star when it comes to recipes using real ingredients. She is a cousin of my friend Mama JJ, and she recently sent in some amazing photos of her farm and had this to say:

Hello Mavis!

I was going through some pics and found some garden ones. I remembered you sometimes feature these things on your blog so I thought I’d share…

I’ve been gardening since I was a kid. First I helped my parents, then I got into growing strawberries for 4-H and then eventually had my own little plot on which I grew lots of annual flowers. I loved it.

So when my husband and I got married, we dug up some dirt, and started growing vegetables. Currently we have “the big garden” out back, “the little garden” by the barn, the raised beds, the orchard, and the pea fences and grape arbor.

raised garden beds

We’ve had this set-up for 5 years now. We always get a good grape crop but the orchard and the big garden sometimes don’t do very well.

We have no idea what we are doing when it comes to fruit trees so any fruit is a nice surprise. The big garden is situated where there used to be a tobacco barn and we think the soil has some issues because of that. We are working on slowly building it up. Sometimes crops grow great in there but other times, they are complete bombs. Oh well.

SONY DSC

The little garden and the raised beds almost always perform quite well! We grow about everything…strawberries, peas, lettuce, spinach, chard, carrots, kohlrabi, rhubarb, asparagus, onions, cabbage, broccoli, kale, peppers, tomatoes, corn, green beans, various dried beans, garlic, cucumbers, squashes, melons, beets, herbs, and I’m probably forgetting some things.

garden with chicken coop

In the one picture you’ll see my chicken house. We currently have 17 birds. 15 eggs a day is a lot for a small family but I love gathering them, washing them up, and giving them to people.

SONY DSC

There’s also a pic of my husband plowing the big garden. He’s using his grandpa’s little old John Deere H. I love that thing!

SONY DSC

Right now my basement has a grow light in it and I have a bunch of starts growing down there. I can’t plant stuff out as early as you can but in another month I should be able to set out some of the cool weather crops. Can’t wait! I am ready for some summer sun and dirt between my toes!

Well that about covers it!

Thanks! Zoe

To find out what Zoe does with all her fresh fruits and vegetables, visit her blog Whole Eats &Whole Treats. She is awesome, and I wish she was my neighbor.
