Awesome Fall Bulbs To Plant!

Awesome Fall Bulbs To Plant

Fall is a wonderful time of year for gardeners. Many people are planting their cool season veggie crops, planning their Fall Herb Garden, rotating their annuals to ones in shades of orange, yellow, and red. But one thing most gardeners look forward to is seeing their fall bulbs pop out of the ground.

Not only is it the perfect time to plant bulbs to bloom in the spring, but it is also the perfect season to see fall bulbs in full bloom. You can find some incredibly awesome fall bulbs at your local nursery, on Amazon, and from bulb companies.

NOTE: this advice is going to be different based on your growing zone. Plant the bulbs early and you may get some late-Fall flowering. Plant them late and you won’t get them until the Spring!

Lilies

Both Asiatic and Oriental Lilies are bulbs, which most people might not know. You can find them in every color under the sun, so finding one that is awesome for you garden shouldn’t be a problem. Lilies have a sweet smell and can perfume up your entire garden. They also multiply quite easily so make sure to divide them out every year. A few of my favorite varieties are Tiger Lilies, Starfighters, and Casablanca lilies. They grow great in the fall and will bloom again in the spring.

Gladiolas

Glads are another bulb that does great in a fall garden. They can get up to five feet tall and can be top heavy, so plant them towards the back of the garden and be prepared that you might need to stake them. Glads come in colors such as white, yellow, light and dark purple, orange, red, green, and various shades of pink.

Crocus

Sweet, beautiful purple and white crocus are some of the prettiest little bulbs that like to bloom in late fall/early winter and can keep going through spring. They have been known to pop up even in a little bit of snow. In some areas, they are the first indicator that spring is around the corner and in other areas, they only bloom in the fall.

Iris

Iris might be the easiest bulb to plant. It comes in white, yellow, and a dark and light shade of purple. They multiply easily and can be grown year round, with the fall being the most popular season. There are hundreds of varieties of Irises and online communities that sell and trade some of the rarer varieties.

What bulbs will you be planting this Fall?

Sunday Coupon Insert Preview | August 31, 2014

As a reminder, the value of the coupons that you find in your newspaper may vary from the value in the provided link! In addition, all of the stores in my area double coupons up to $.99 (so a $.75 coupon has a value of $1.50). If the stores in your area don’t double or your paper is more expensive, you may not find the coupons as valuable as I do!

Check out Sunday Coupon Preview for the complete listing of coupons. There should be 1 insert this week: a Proctor & Gamble insert

Don’t understand the terms or abbreviations that I use? Be sure to read my Coupon Lingo post!

Coupons of Note

:: Proctor & Gamble insert

It’s pretty much the standard P&G coupons. There are some nice Pantene coupons and a high-value coupon for Tide Oxi, but other than that, it is pretty boring!

So how many copies of the paper would I buy?

If I were building a stockpile: 2 – 3

Now that I am in stockpile-maintenance mode: 1 – 2

It’s a boring week!

slow cooker recipes sandwiches

Welcome Back to Freezer to Crockpot Cooking – Sandwich Week! You have had a few days to get everything on the shopping list for the week, so now it is time to put everything together!

Make sure to check out  all of the other weeks in this series:

Don’t forget: the shopping list for this week was designed to make 4 meals. If you doubled or tripled the shopping list to make even more meals (or larger meals), you will need to adjust these instructions for the increased quantity of food that you are making

Step 1 – Prep Your Ingredients – Just a few steps of prep work for these sandwiches

  • Cut your 4 lb roast in half
  • Slice bell peppers into strips
  • Slice 1 onion into strips
  • Dice one onion

See? Easy Peasy.

Step 2 – Get Your Bags Ready!

Grab 4 gallon, and 1 quart freezer bag and a sharpie, lets write the cooking directions before we fill the bags for later- who can remember a month from now what you are supposed to do? I recommend that all but the chicken be thawed the night before in the refrigerator before cooking. Chicken cooks beautifully from a frozen state but I have more trouble with other meat and find it just tastes better thawed first.

Philly Cheesesteak

  • Thaw overnight in the refrigerator
  • Spray crockpot with nonstick cooking spray
  • Pour contents of bag into crockpot
  • Cook on low for 7-8 hours
  • Using a slotted spoon, drain meat, place on your favorite roll, top with a slice of Swiss or Provolone cheese. Place in toaster oven or under broiler for 2 minutes.
  • Additional Ingredients: Rolls

Hawaiian Chicken Sandwich

  • Spray crockpot with nonstick cooking spray
  • Pour contents of bag into crockpot
  • Cook on low for 6-7 hours *Note- If you cook chicken longer you can eat it as a shredded chicken sandwich as well, I like to eat the whole chicken breast*
  • Remove from crockpot and place on a hamburger bun (I love the Hawaiian Rolls brand for this)
  • Top with cheese if desired
  • Additional Items: Rolls

Pulled Pork Sandwich with Homemade Barbeque Sauce

  • Defrost in refrigerator overnight
  • Spray crockpot with nonstick cooking spray
  • Pour contents of bag into crockpot
  • Add ½ a beer, any kind, don’t need to be exact
  • Cook on low for 7-8 hours
  • Drain liquid , remove fat
  • Return to crockpot
  • Add bag #2
  • Cook for an additional 30 minutes
  • Shred with 2 forks
  • Serve on hamburger buns
  • Additional Ingredients: Rolls

French Dip Sandwich

  • Defrost in refigerator overnight
  • Spray crockpot with nonstick spray
  • Pour contents of bag into crockpot
  • Cook on low 6-8 hours
  • Add 1-12 oz. beer
  • Cook for another 30 minutes
  • Shred meat with 2 forks
  • Serve on French or Kaiser rolls
  • Additional Items needed: Rolls

Step 3 – Fill Your Bags!

Ok now you know the drill.. let’s fill those bags for the freezer, but feel free to keep one out and toss it into your crockpot for dinner.

Philly Cheesesteak

  • 2 lbs. of roast
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1 stick of butter (8 tbsp)
  • 2 cloves crushed garlic
  • 1 ½ tsp. black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire
  • Green Pepper Strips
  • Onion Strips

Hawaiian Chicken Sandwich

  • 4-6 Chicken Breasts
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 small can crushed pineapple
  • ½ cup finely diced onions
  • ¼ cup packed brown sugar
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. black pepper
  • ½ tsp. ground ginger

Pulled Pork Sandwich

  • Pork shoulder or loin
  • 1 cup water
  • ½ cup diced onions

In Quart Bag:

  • 1 cup ketchup
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1 tsp. onion powder or flakes
  • 3 cloves crushed garlic

French Dip

  • 2 lb. roast
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 3 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 tsp. onion flakes
  • 1 tsp. black pepper

And that is it! You now have 4 bags for your freezer of easy sandwich meals that you can make in a pinch!

How To Be A Good Dinner Guest | Dining Etiquette

Dining Etiquette | How to Be a Good Dinner Guest

Dining Etiquette

Knowing how to be a good dinner guest will ensure that you are asked back at another time. There are common rules of etiquette when you are invited to dine at someone’s place.

The following tips may help to make your stay more comfortable and impress the host. An invitation to dine at someone’s home is a gift; make sure that you are a good guest.

  1. Respond to the Invitation as soon as you can – When you are invited to dine at someone’s place make sure that you accept the offer within a reasonable period. This will allow them to plan their time as well as offer alternative dates if you have a scheduling conflict.
  2. Clarify WHO was invited – In most cases, the invite will come from a friend and it will likely not be a formal written invitation and they will say who is invited.  Still – that doesn’t mean that your children are invited unless expressly mentioned in the invite (be it phone, email or engraved invitation). If the invite doesn’t mention your children, say something like “Great! Let me just make sure that I can get a babysitter for the night!”.  When you say that, it will give the host the opportunity to either say “Don’t be silly – bring the kids!” or they will say “Can’t wait to hear back if you can make it!”.  if they say the latter, then your kids, no matter HOW wonderful you might think that they are – are just NOT invited.  Don’t bring them anyway.  Seriously – DON’T!
  3. If you have any dietary issues – Let them know of any dietary concerns that you may have. This will help the dinner to be prepared and eaten without any discomfort. If you are on a gluten-free diet, gently let them know that.  If you know that your host is not familiar with any restrictions that you have (vegan, gluten-free, kosher, etc), offer to bring a dish that you can eat.  A guest doesn’t want to show up and only be able to eat salad, bread and butter.  On the other hand, most hosts would be embarrassed (and somewhat annoyed for not knowing in advance) to go to the time and effort to prepare a meal, only to have their guests not eat it.  This is a 2-way street. If you have bona-fide food allergies or restrictions, POLITELY mention them to your host (and no “I hate anything with onions” doesn’t count)
  4. Give Cancellation Notice – If you should need to cancel, make sure that you do so within a reasonable period. This usually means an advance notice at least 48 hours ahead of the date planned. Your host might be shopping and preparing foods in advance and if something comes up, you want to minimize their cost as well as their inconvenience!
  5. Don’t cancel unless it is an emergency – once you have accepted an invitation, then you are bound by it.  Don’t back out at the last minute because you are too tired, or you had a bad day at work.  Your dog died?  You have the flu (or even a bad cold, especially if your hosts have small children)?  You are bleeding out of your eyes?  Those are good reasons.  Not realizing that is was the Season 4 Premiere of The Walking Dead that night is NOT a good reason!
  6. Arrive on Time- When invited for a dinner party, it is vital that you arrive on time. They have spent the time ensuring that the food is bought and prepared properly. Do not be late and cause the food to be overcooked. “Fashionably late” is only for very large parties (and even then, it is considered rude to show up late)
  7. Bring a Gift- It is important that you thank the host by bringing a gift to the dinner. This can be a bottle of wine, a salad, or even a dessert (although wine or chocolates are always best.  In the case of a formal dinner party, bringing a dish could be considered rude). If you have no time to pick up something to bring to the host, send something through the parcel post as a thank-you gift.

The above tips are just common dining etiquette, and should be followed at every dinner that you are invited to attend. Knowing proper dinner etiquette will help to ensure you are invited back another time.
