Mavis Indoor Garden Blog – Paperwhites and Basil

Last week I planted paperwhites, and according to the package, the paperwhites should be blooming here in about 3 more weeks. I wanted to share a picture I took today with those of you who have never planted them before.

Paperwhites are SUPER easy to grow, look great, and make great {inexpensive} gifts too.  I love planting paperwhites in clear glass containers because the roots get pretty leggy and sort of take on a life of their own.

9 days ago I planted basil seeds. I placed them under grow lights in the office so I wouldn’t forget to water them.  By this weekend they should be ready to be thinned out.  I think a giant bowl of fresh pesto would be a great way to start off the new year, don’t you?

I’m also getting the itch to start more seeds indoors.  But I know if I start to early, the Handsome Husband will flip out.  After all, trays and trays of transplants in the family room during the holidays probably wouldn’t go over to well if we had people over.

How about YOU?  Are you growing anything indoors this winter?  Have you grown anything in the past?

Thanksgiving Recipes – Pineapple Buttermilk Pie

If you are looking for a unique dessert to make this Thanksgiving, try this recipe for Pineapple Buttermilk Pie. One bite and you will be hooked. This pie has a very old-fashioned taste and texture to it.

It reminds me of the real homemade pies one might find in a roadside diner where the waitress’ name is Thelma, or something your grandmother would make. There is nothing mass-produced tasting about this, just simple down home goodness.

Trust me. You’ll want to make this pie over and over again.

Pineapple Buttermilk Pie {adapted from a Southern Living* recipe}

Ingredients

1 Pie crust {single layer}
2 cups sugar
2 tablespoons cornmeal
5 eggs, lightly beaten
2/3 cup buttermilk {How to Make Buttermilk}
1/2 cup drained crushed pineapple
1/2 cup sweetened coconut
1/4 cup butter, melted
2 teaspoons lemon juice {I use bottled}
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

Put pie crust in 9″ pie pan and make the edges pretty.
Stir sugar, cornmeal, eggs and buttermilk together than add the rest.
Pour filling into pie crust and bake @ 350 for 45-50 minutes until the center is set and the top is lightly browned.

Chill for a few hours before serving and store in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Chocolate covered cookies {I used Oreo thin mints}
Mini M&M’s

Chocolate Chips
Candy Corn

How to Make Thanksgiving Turkey Cookies

Carefully cut the bottoms off half of the chocolate covered cookies.

Spread melted chocolate chips over the tops of the cut cookies.  Add 4 pieces of candy corn to each cookie in a fan shaped pattern and let set for 5 minutes.

Using melted chocolate, adhere 1 Hershey’s kiss to each whole cookie and let it set for 5 minutes.  The, using a knife, apply a little bit of melted chocolate to the bottom of each cut cookie.

With more melted chocolate, adhere to cut cookie right behind the Hershey’s kiss.  Add 1 red mini m&m for a wattle with melted chocolate, and viola!  You’re done.

Mavis Garden Blog – Do You Have a Recipe for Brussels Sprouts?

Last night we had our first frost, and this morning I noticed a comment from Sheryl on facebook informing me my Brussels Sprouts were big enough to pick.

As I started to walk out to the garden I suddenly realized, I had no idea HOW TO PICK Brussels sprouts.  So what did I do?  I asked how I should pick them on facebook.

Well, after I saw the first comments I headed outside with a knife and cut off a few.

But now what?

If you have cooked Brussels sprouts before, please let me know if you have a good recipe.  I’d like to make some for Thanksgiving, so these will be my “practice sprouts.”

And thanks again for your help.  I may know how to grow stuff, but knowing what to do with it is something totally different.

~Mavis

P.S. After re-reading the facebook comments, some people are telling me I should have cut the entire stalk.  Is that right?

Grow Your Own Food – Mavis’ November Garden Tour

I think it’s kind of funny how our backyard garden has sprung to life again with all the cold weather we have been having.  The garden boxes are full of green goodness and are chugging right along.

The latest vegetables to emerge are cauliflower and winter beets.  I’m still not sure if we will be eating homegrown beets this Thanksgiving, but some cauliflower hummus will be on the menu, that’s for sure.

Here are a few pictures of the vegetables currently growing within the backyard garden boxes.

Pretty stinkin’ awesome for November if you ask me.

So even though the beans and squash are long gone…

and the potatoes have all been harvested,

There is still plenty of kale, Swiss chard, broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage to eat. And with a bit of luck we’ll have Brussels sprouts, beets and carrots to harvest here pretty soon as well.

Life is good.

~Mavis

P.S.  Do YOU have anything left growing in your garden?

Holy Canolies people, can you believe it is Thursday already?  I was able to get 7 hours of sleep last night in my new sock monkey pajamas.  Man are they cozy, you should get a pair at Target the next time you are there. I’ve been scoping out the boys footed pajama section and all they have are camouflage and dinosaurs.  Boring.  The girls section has way more choices {just sayin’}.

Anyway, I need to get up and start my day, I have a long list, and there are only like 5 hours of sunlight, so I better get out of bed.

Have a great day, and stay out of trouble.
