cup of matcha latte

I am always on the look-out for new recipes and foods to try.  Unfortunately, that does not always mean I have time or the ingredients to test them out.  However, I try to keep my eyes open for things that will fit into our menu in the upcoming weeks.

Sometimes, something catches my eye and begs me to get it then figure out what to do with it.  While this is not the normal way I function, it does happen rarely.

This was one of those times.

As you may have picked up over the past several weeks, I like a cup of hot tea.  Usually a red or black tea, preferably nothing fruity.  Knowing green tea is also good for you, I had picked up a box a few months back with the intent to add it to my mornings.

I didn’t.  It sat there mocking me on the shelf every time I opened the door.

Once I began having a cup of tea in the mornings, while watching the sun rise, I decided it was time to open the box of green tea and let some of the natural benefits work their magic on my healing body.  As it turns out, while it is not necessarily my preferred tea, it was not bad.  Actually, I was beginning to like the flavor.

When I was given the opportunity to try out Matcha (ground green tea powder) I decided it was a safe, yet exciting, step to take into trying something new.  “I like green tea, so … surely I can find some way to make this so I like it, too. After all, it has a lot of health benefits and I have not exactly been going to the gym lately.”

And find a way I did.

Thanks to their website I found a recipe for a green tea latte.  How great is that? Not only does it call for matcha powder, but it also contains coconut oil.  AND it is a latte.  I love lattes.

While the recipe was for a Bulletproof Keto Matcha Latte, I did not need all the restrictions. In the end, I did make a few adjustments due to not having certain items or not needing certain dietary restrictions.

  1. I had no coconut milk in the house, instead substituting regular Vitamin D milk.
  2. With a lack of a milk frother, I found my hand blender to work well enough for my tastes.  Thankfully I am not a huge fan of froth on my drinks, so the results were exactly as I like them.

One of my concerns was the size of the packaging.  For the price, I was expecting something larger.  However, once I looked through the recipe and found I would only need 0.5-1 teaspoon of the powder, I realized how many cups this would make and the size was not such an issue.

If this is something you often order when you are out and about, at $4 a cup, or would like to keep as a special treat or a healthy alternative, then I could see where it would be a good deal.

If, however, you are looking to make several cups a day because you are an avid tea drinker and want to watch your costs, then you may want to counter the cost with a few cups of a cheaper option of tea.

If cost is not a deterrent to making several cups a day, then go for it! It was easy to put together and the coconut oil did not clump once the drink cooled off. (I was not in an extremely cold setting.)

Super Bowl is not a day that I want to spend time in the kitchen while everyone else is enjoying the game and each other’s company.  I prefer to have recipes that I can make ahead and just keep warm, or cool, to serve up when the time is right.  Here are a few recipes from Abe’s Market to help in that goal.

The use of an all-natural slow cooker sauce made entirely of vegetables and seasonings speeds up prep time considerably. Using lean ground beef, turkey or all vegetables ensures a low-fat delicious meal! Take an extra 25% off Jesben Slow Cooker Sauces with code SNOWDAY until 2/1!

WaterfallI started this post on Monday, but then realized it had nothing to do with menu planning, so it was moved to its own post.  

The picture above is from a vacation a few years back that we took to the U.P. of Michigan.  It was actually the first vacation we took with our foster kids.  My husband has fond memories while I remember all the work it took … now I can look back, smile and be thankful it is no longer that much work with the kids.

As the day progressed it was clear that the Plan was not going to work out.  This turned out to be a day where it was best to focus on the thing right in front of me and not worry about the thing coming after it.  I’ve kept my head all day, even when the kids decided “put on your shoes so we can go” meant “read the tag on your sibling’s coat and then argue about what it says (two non-readers), turn in circles on the floor, stare at the wall, take your cousin’s shoes and sit 6  feet away from your own shoes then stare at me dumbly when I walk back into the room 3 minutes later and ask if you are ready to go”.  Wouldn’t have been so bad if I hadn’t washed 5 loads of laundry, made breakfast, called the furnace repair guy and figured out what to do with our furnace while we were gone so it wouldn’t overheat, gathered up nephew’s things, collected items to send home with my parents, strip my bed after realizing a little one’s pull up had leaked during the night – after they had climbed into our bed (load #6), and gathered up their swimming stuff all before 9 a.m.  At that point I had very little tolerance for being ignored.

Swimming was nixed and the grandparents came to my house instead to take the kids out for hot cocoa.  While I was folding a load of clothes a knock at the door turned out to be the technician for the internet company, we were switching providers.  He was there to install our router.  Surprise!  Good thing we didn’t go swimming.  He left a bit after noon.

We ate lunch out.

We had ordered our food, but nothing had arrived yet when the furnace repair guy called and said he would be at our house in 30 minutes.  Good thing we were only 3 blocks from our house.  So it was decided that I would go back and my parents would bring all the kids after the meal.

Then the restaurant informed my husband they didn’t have the meat he was wanting.  Change of plans (again).  He went home to eat a sandwich and work on his computer there while the repair guys came and I finished lunch with my family.

The afternoon turned out okay, though I figured out one kid was sick which explained the lack of appetite and moodiness.  Laundry was not nearly the daunting job that I had thought it would be, as I worked my way through all baskets of wet clothes, folding each dryer load as it came out of the dryer.  What really got me was the hour, plus, spent talking with the internet customer service people.  It all worked out in the end.  The end however was 15 minutes after supper should have been on the table.  Now what?

Going through my list of quick meal options I realized we had french onion soup in the house since we hadn’t used it for the Salisbury steak today for lunch.  What could have been a bad thing suddenly turned good.  To the soup I added left over cornbread and a loaf of day old bread we had gotten from the bakery the day before.  15 minutes later supper was on the table.

Tuesday found us still having internet troubles, not getting the speed promised.  Now what would we do?  Pay a bit more for less speed or call and cancel.  Thankfully the ‘old’ provider (Company B) hadn’t disconnected us yet, so we called and canceled with the ‘new’ company (Company A). (Again after time spent on the phone trying to figure out why it was slow.)  It was a bit sad, as Company A was the one we had been with for years.  We had left Company A a few months back with the thought to save some money on our monthly bill in the long run.  I wasn’t too sure about Company B as I had heard bad feedback from people in our town.  So when we were looking to go back to Company A, paying a bit more for a faster speed, we had no thoughts of issues arising.  When it turned out that we would be paying more for slower speed it didn’t take us long to agree that Company B had actually turned out to be a good company, that we had no qualms with them, and that we would rather be saving money than paying more for less.  We are good with math that way.

Tuesday also turned into a snow day for the kids, Wednesday found them back at school only to be kept home on Thursday due to cold temperatures.  My internal clock is off as I’m not sure exactly what day it is.

What I do know is that the week got better as it went on, the kids are maturing a bit and better able to handle change, and not wanting to go out in the below freezing temperatures has meant I stayed home and worked on some long overdue projects.

  • I was able to get the ceiling in our bedroom patched.  Turned out to be only the paint bubbling and peeling, not the plaster.  I would have jumped for joy but for the fact that I was standing on a ladder.
  • Since I had the spackling out I also fill a hole made by a door handle, two places on the bathroom wall where hooks pulled off, and a gouge left in our dry wall by electrician who was installing a switch.
  • Our above fridge freezer was cleaned out of things I didn’t need for the upcoming week.  All the extras were moved to the standing freezer.
  • I filled in next week’s menu with items we already have on hand.
  • The bread ends, from the freezer, were broken into pieces, dried and made into bread crumbs.
  • The dried egg shells on the kitchen counter were blended up, since I had the blender out anyway for the bread crumbs.  These will be used in the garden when I plant transplants, especially tomatoes, as they supply calcium.
  • The remaining croissants in our freezer were thaw and baked.  They were past their prime so they didn’t raise as well as they should have.  That is okay, though, as they taste the same and the kids don’t care – food is food.
  • I took down the first piece of wallpaper in our spare bedroom.  One of the preschoolers was excited to help.  With an outlet nearby I didn’t want a little one getting things wet, so I waiting till the paper was the appropriate height and let the preschooler help pull it off.  It was so much more fun.  When asked why I was using water I explained that the wall paper was put up with “special glue that goes on with water and comes off with water …don’t you dare try gluing paper to the walls.  This is special glue, not like you use.  DON’T glue paper to the walls.”  Yes, this one needs that disclaimer.

picked up bedroom

My husband came home Friday exhausted and fell onto the bed.  He asked how my day went.

“It has been a good day.  The kids have behaved very well.”  Then I felt a bit of teasing was in order.

“Oh, by the way, Miss So-and-So called. (From our foster care agency.)  They are having trouble finding a place for an 18 year old.  It is just for the night.”  I stopped for a dramatic pause, knowing what he would say.

“No!  We can’t do it right now.  Only kids younger than ours from now on.  They know that.” Once he looked at me he knew I was teasing him.  I smiled and told him the rest of the story.  Miss So-and-So also knew what I would say as I have told her previously we aren’t taking any new placements right now.  It was on a technicality they had to call us.

Our first foster child (16 yo) was the result of such a call, as was our second (also 16 y.o), but that was a different time.  I know there is a home out there that may work well for this kind of situation, but it isn’t ours right now.  As much as I want to say “Yes” to everything, I have learned that for the sake of your sanity and family it is good to say “No” at times.  And just like all the other times I had to say “No” a prayer for the kid and the situation followed the phone call.

Now, I’m being summoned to act as art director and get out water colors.  Off I go.  And in case you find yourself with too many lemons, here is a great gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free and refined sugar free lemon dessert.  (No I am not changing my dietary requirements.  A friend of mine has some of the limitations, but it is also good to have these on hand ‘just in case’.)

Twenty-Five Cent Dinners for Families of Six

Yes, this is an older book.  It was written in the late 1800’s and was actually the author’s second book on the subject.  After writing “Fifteen Cent Dinners for Families of Six” the author found that some readers were a bit more well off but still not wealthy.  These readers were interested in being good at pinching pennies but had a bit more leeway in their budgets.  They could afford a few more indulgences, like coffee and tea with their meals.

I really enjoyed reading this book, not only for some money saving ideas and recipes (though I’ll pass on the brain and ___ pudding), but also for some of the comments.

Read this month:

Feeding Wild Birds with Garden Plants: 3 (Specialty Garden Series) [Kindle Edition] by Dave Sandersfeld

I so wanted to like this book. However, it only took a few pages to get the feeling that I was missing something.  I even went back and read the brief description of the book and checked the title page to make sure it all lined up.  The format just did not work for me.  There were too many quotes, links to other websites, and the beginning felt more like an advertisement for becoming an environmentist than a book on feeding birds.  I stuck it out hoping it would get better.  

Near the end I finally found what I was looking for – a list of plants and their benefits for birds.  There were several in the list that I hadn’t thought of planting for birds.  Once I thought of them, though, they made sense.  There were also a few that I would shy away from, but I tend to like natives more than non-native plants.  Even if those plants are not invasive.  I’m not a purist, so don’t check the landscaping in my  yard, but natives are my preferences. 

In the end, I’m not sure I would recommend this book if you are wanting a reference book.  It is not a bad read if you are starting out and wondering why anyone would want to feed bird.  Or even if you are just being introduced to the idea.

This is more of a booklet than a full fledged book of 100+ pages.  In other words, it took me about 30 minutes to read through it, not several days.  The tips reminded me a lot of tips I’ve read elsewhere, just used in reference to your basement.  I liked the first question asked, “Exactly what do you want to accomplish?”  Basements are as varied as the people who own them.  They are used for different things, and even that can change over time. Knowing where you want to end up will help you start heading in the right direction.

Quit Gardening in 4 Easy Steps

 

Jan 222013
 

Often times the beginning of a new year finds me looking forward to what I would like to accomplish in the upcoming year.  As I was thinking about that, I also thought about where I had been the past year.  Here are some highlights of things from the past year, both pictures and links, that have stood out to me for one reason or another.

Tulip tree (Liriodendron tulipifera)

I talked about the tulip tree in some detail during a “Tree of the Week” post and gave photos and links to help others identify it.  The beauty of this tree, even with no leaves, still strikes me and makes me pause when I see them.  Perhaps it is the straightness of the trunk or how the limbs just seem to sweep out from it.  This tree is definitely not a wall flower.

Poppy flowers

In May 2012 I talked about growing poppies.  These were a pleasant surprise the spring after we bought our house.  I didn’t like everything the previous owner’s did with the landscaping, but this was defiantly one thing I was happy about.

Some of my favorite posts from this time last year involved a short series about selling at a Farmer’s Market.  Here I talked about the Trials and Lessons I learned along the way.  A few posts later I talked about the differences between your perception of what it will be like and the reality.  I went on to expand on the lessons I learned in two follow-up posts, Part 1 and Part 2. The topic ended with a list of 50 things you could sell at a Farmer’s Market, other than produce that is.

Not only have I talked about Farmer’s Markets, but also about my own produce stand and how it got started.  I went on to talk more about my local produce auction.  Looking back I will have to say that the name of the post (Amish Produce Auction) is not exactly accurate, even though that is what everyone around here calls it.  In all fairness, there are some Mennonite and other sellers that bring items.  It just happen that a very large percent of sellers are Amish.  I also shared a second “Tales from the produce auction” post about  pumpkins and the circumstances that lead to me first started having  pureed pumpkin in my freezer.  Natural Deterrents was a recap of one aspect of having a stand that I never would have thought about.  Looking back I both laugh and get a bit annoyed.  Yes, I still hold a grudge against those beady-eyed squirrels.

Flowers from my front flower bed

 At the end of November I finally tackled a flower garden project that I had been putting off for about 4 years.  This was thanks to the ebook “21 Days To A More Self-Disciplined Life” by Crystal Paine.    Even now I am so happy when I look at it.  Yes, I still need to put down grass seed, but I am okay with that still needing to be done.  Besides, on average it is around freezing this time of the year.  Grass doesn’t really grow in those temperatures.

Tulips in my front flower bed

My composting worms also made an appearance after the surprising find that they were still alive.  I went on to talk a bit more about them and how much I really do love having a worm bin at home.  A few weeks later I talked about a worm’s diet.  During that post I also recorded the amount, in pounds, of food scraps I was sending to the compost  pile.  It was an insightful exercise in that it made me so much more aware of how much household waste we could recycle at home instead of throwing away or sending to be recycled elsewhere.

Food has been mentioned somewhat regularly on here.  At the beginning of February 2012 I posted about using what you have at home.  This included using frozen pumpkin puree to make shakes and muffins. Actually, I need to check to see if there are a few more bags in the freezer.  Pumpkin shakes sound good right now.

Last May I also shared recipes and the results from my Tea Party.  If you were a reader at that time you may remember that I was practicing recipes and prep work for a bridal shower I was helping with.  I have been meaning to do a similar thing (though not for a bridal shower) this winter that would involve coffee and biscotti.  If you happen to have any good recipes you are willing to share I would love to try them out.

Most recently I have been talking about Creating a Garden Calendar to help start off your upcoming garden season.  To make this a bit easier for you I also shared at least 27 different sources of calendars, here and here.  Not all of the calendar are still available for free, but I do know that I have seen more available at local businesses lately.  Even my bank had some that were free for the taking.

There were more things talked about over the past year, but these are the ones that stand out to me.  There were also more photos, especially towards the second half of the year.  For one reason or another these have stood out to me.  Perhaps it is the memory behind them, like the last photo which is of the front flower bed after it was finished and filled with compost and dead leaves.  Or maybe it is the bright colors, like the butterflies enjoying the orange slices on the yellow dish.  This time last year I would not have guessed that a lot of these experiences would have happened.  Similarly I do not know what the upcoming year, or beyond, will hold.  I only know that I will do my best to make the most of the opportunities that come.

Food and recipes:

As part of the new year, I have decided that I need to get back into making things ahead.  I was good about it last year until the end, just when life was getting a bit out of the norm.  Not only does this help when supper/lunch/breakfast time comes along, but also with meal planning.  If I know I have extra for next month then I automatically already have one more meal for that month figured out.  Here are some ebooks I saw.  I haven’t had a chance to read them, but hope to soon.
