Tell It All Tuesday: I Katy am an Egg Snob

by naneraday on October 21, 2014

Eggs and garlic.  Garlic and eggs.  Two things that have my heart and soul, two things that up until a year ago I was doing all wrong.  You see I was like most consumers buying my eggs conventionally, usually from Costco, looking for things on the carton like “cage free” and “vegetarian fed”, but it wasn’t until my dad opened the doors of Happy Hen Farms I morphed into a complete egg snob.

thanks for the eggs chicks!

Although those terms are great if you have to buy them from a store, there is quite a delay from when the chicken lays the egg until it makes it way into your local store.  The ones you get from my dad on the other hand are never older than three days old.

look at those beauties

Not only do I get creepily excited to see the different colors of the eggs in each carton(the hens color determines the color of the egg), the taste of them is rich, creamy and the yolks are so plump and a vibrant orange color. It wasn’t until I was talking to my dad about how fresh they are that I realized that the little jar of minced garlic in my fridge completely goes against that fresh factor(my lightbulb moments tend to be sporadic with no direct link to the conversation at hand because I’m ADD like that).  So I asked him if he bought minced, with a snarly look on his face, I knew the answer was no.

Moral of the story buy farm fresh eggs when possible and always use fresh garlic, you’ll thank me later.

What are you must have fresh items on your grocery list?

DIY: Spray Paint Makeover

by naneraday on October 17, 2014

With buying Brunos house, Mike and I have taken on a lot of work.  Believe me when I say nothing was removed from the house down to the food in the fridge.  Althought we one thousand percent knew what we were taking on, we really had no idea looking back.  Now that mostly everything is gone(a local charity, the Shared Connection, is coming for the rest), we had to take a step back and really decide what where it was smart to spend our time and money.

Since we are lucky enough that the house itself only really needs some cosmetic work, we have really just zoned in on the things that we think will make the house a little more up to date.  I guess “we” is a little bit of a stretch, I get a little OCD at times and ridding the house of old, beat up brass was near the top of my have-to-do list.  And when I say rid the house, I mean in the kitchen, bathroom, and all the door handles. Migs initially gave me the ol “do you know how much we are going to have to spend replacing everything look”, but I assured him I’d figure something out.  Enter spray paint.

Simply scratch up the knobs with an SOS pad, wipe them clean with a damp rag, and spray away.  Be sure to use light strokes and spray in a well ventilated area.

PS my fave spray paint is the Rust-oleum metallic paint and primer in one.  It sprays and covers like a dream! Go get yerself some!
