Is It Healthy To Fry Food? Deep Fryers and Great Grocery Deals…

Several have asked how I fry my Pumpkin Donuts.  A skillet with about a 1/2 inch of hot oil works great, and that’s how I used to fry food.  But Matt and the boys got me this Oster Deep Fat Fryer a couple Christmases ago and I LOVE it.  This makes the process of frying donuts, chicken nuggets, French fries, etc. so much easier!

Is it Healthy to Eat Fried Food

The question everyone wants to know is:  Aren’t fried foods unhealthy?

My very happy response to that questions is this:  If you fry your food in Palm Shortening or Coconut Oil, your fried foods will be healthy!  The reason?  Palm Shortening and Coconut Oil are digestible, nourishing, and stable fats.  This means that they can be heated to extreme temperatures without becoming rancid or without turning into trans fats.  #happydance #bringonthehomemadefrenchfries

Other oils – in particular bottled vegetable oils and canola oil – aren’t beneficial to our health in the first place.  When they are heated to the high temperatures required for frying, they begin to go berserk because they aren’t stable enough to handle the heat.  When heated for frying, they become rancid or oxidized, then they create free radicals that attack our cells.  This can eventually lead to many health problems and diseases.  #nothanks  #blech  #stickwithcoconutoil

Olive oil is a healthy fat, but it becomes unstable at about 450° so it isn’t always a great choice for deep-frying food.  I do use olive oil to lightly stir fry veggies in a skillet.

I’m so grateful for healthy frying options, because fried food tastes crazy good!  Obviously, we need to balance the good fats and fried food with plenty of fruits and vegetables.  After all, God created our bodies to function best by eating a wide variety of nutrients.  But for the record, fried green beans, fried zucchini, fried mushrooms, and fried asparagus are fantastic.  #bestofbothworlds

Now for some big fat healthy deals around the web:

I typically recommend my favorite Palm Shortening from Tropical Traditions because it is such fantastic quality.  In case you’d like to try a smaller container of this shortening (Tropical Traditions only carries gallon buckets or larger), you may want to try Spectrum brand, which comes in a 24 ounce tub.

Right now, iHerb is carrying Spectrum Palm Shortening for just $6.34 a tub.  Even better?  You get free shipping at iHerb when your order is over $20.  AND, if you’re a new customer and click through this iHerb referral link, you’ll get $10 off your order of $40 or more.  (Or use my referral number at checkout, BID487)  Sweet deal!

While you’re at iHerb getting your $10 off and free shipping, I suggest picking up other ingredients you might need for baking this fall and winter.  They carry my favorite brand of sucanat, Rapunzel Whole Cane Sugar.  I often also get Enjoy Life Soy Free Chocolate Chips and Now Foods Cocoa Powder at iHerb.  Yay for fun baking!  Have fun with your $10 of free grocery money!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I recommend expeller pressed or refined coconut oil for frying as these varieties are flavorless and odorless.  Amazon is carrying BetterBody Foods Organic Refined Oil for just $10.60 for a 15 ounce jar.  There are only a few in stock, so hopefully you can grab one before they run out!

Amazon is running a great deal on a Lodge 5-Piece Cast Iron Skillet Set.  It’s only $63.99, down from $150.00.  This is a GREAT deal if you can swing it.  Cast iron is a fantastic, healthy alternative to Teflon.  You can use palm shortening or coconut oil to season your cast iron.

Universal Housewares is also offering a great deal on cast iron.  Get this 3-piece skillet set for just $24.99, down from $50.00.

What are your favorite fried foods?  Have you switched to palm or coconut oil for frying?  It’s a delicious change for the better!

Whole Wheat Pumpkin Donuts

After months of trial, illness, starvation, exhaustion, and many other forms of misery (encouraging post so far, Laura) – the Pilgrims and the Wampanoags came together for a great feast on what is now known as The First Thanksgiving.  These incredible people had much to celebrate, no doubt.

On their table there was an abundance of lobster, rabbit, chicken, squash, chestnuts, hickory nuts, onions, leeks, dried fruits, radishes, and cabbage – all of the traditional foods you and I always serve to our families on Thanksgiving, right?  (I always tear up a little during the carving of our traditional Thanksgiving Lobster.)

Quick question: How did the above First Thanksgiving menu give way to boxed stuffing and canned cranberry sauce that plops out onto a plate?  Don’t answer that.  But what I do what to know is this:  Where have these Whole Wheat Pumpkin Donuts been all my life?  These need to be added to everyone’s Thanksgiving menu: turkey, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes, relish tray, mashed potatoes and gravy, homemade rolls with butter, and a big, huge platter of Pumpkin Donuts.  Oh, and don’t forget the Lobster.

Whole Wheat Pumpkin Donuts with Glaze

These Pumpkin Donuts scream, “Fall is here!  Be thankful!  Inhale deeply the scent of cinnamon spice!  Eat me already!”  This is a fall treat that ranks right up there with all things amazing.  This donut recipe stirs up quickly, rolls out easily, and fries up into fantastic goodies that might make you pass out.  They are great with a cup of coffee or apple cider.

Whole Wheat Pumpkin Donuts (adapted from this recipe)

3 1/2 cups whole wheat flour (I use freshly ground hard white wheat)
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup sucanat (or brown sugar)
2 Tablespoons melted butter
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 cup pumpkin puree
Oil for frying (I recommend coconut oil or palm shortening for healthy frying)

Stir together whole wheat flour, baking powder, sea salt, ground cinnamon, nutmeg, and sucanat.  Add melted butter, eggs, vanilla, buttermilk, and pumpkin puree – mixing until all ingredients are well combined.  Roll dough on a well-floured surface.  Cut out donuts and donut holes (makes about 30 of each).

Fry dough in hot oil for about 3 minutes or until donuts are golden brown.  Drizzle with glaze and serve.

Buttermilk Glaze

2 cups powdered sugar (I use unbleached powdered sugar)
1/3 cup buttermilk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Whisk ingredients together and drizzle over warm donuts before serving.

Whole Wheat Pumpkin Donuts

What are your family’s traditional Thanksgiving foods that are a little different from the norm?  I have to admit, not only have I never had a Thanksgiving Lobster on my table, I’m not sure I’ve ever actually eaten lobster, period.  I’m a Kansas girl turned Nebraska girl.  What can I say?

Is Laura Really Talking About Ironing?? Yep! It’s an Iron Ease Pro Giveaway! (U.S. and Canada)

If you know me, and I’m afraid you do, you know that ironing is not on my top ten favorite activities list.  Bottom ten is more like it.  Ugh…ironing.

So why am I choosing to talk about this dreaded subject?  Perhaps it’s because my ironing pile is getting bigger and somebody needs to catch up on that around here.  (Boys, are you listening?)

Speaking of boys:  Because we have a household full of them, ironing has not been super necessary most of the time.  T-shirts and jeans, athletic gear and soccer uniforms - none of those items need ironing even if one of the boys crams his clothes into his drawers without folding them first but let’s not even talk about that.  Now that our boys are getting older and caring more about how they look and smell?  Well, ironing is going to have to move higher up on our chore list.

boys at wedding

Here are all the boys at a wedding a couple months ago – all unwrinkled and buttoned up.

So let’s make ironing as easy as possible, shall we?  I just received a wonderful free IronEase Pro to try out.  Who knew an ironing board could be so nice?  Who knew I could actually iron the sleeves of shirts without putting more creases in during the process?  Who knew the iron could glide over the clothes so nicely?

Well, it just might be that I don’t hate ironing as much as I used to.  I’ll still encourage t-shirts and jeans, but when the boys need to look a little nicer, I won’t dread ironing their shirts as much as I used to.  Trust me when I say that they will also be using the IronEase Pro to keep themselves handsome, oh yes they will.  (Boys, are you listening?)

Iron Ease 1 IronEase 2

A word from de Machinor:

We’ve experienced countless improvements in common household products since the Millennium, yet the common ironing board has remained unchanged since it was first conceived over 140 years ago. Innovative product design powerhouse, de Machinor, has addressed the design flaws inherent of traditional ironing boards in their debut IronEase Pro– resulting in a markedly more effective product that saves time and makes ironing feel like less of a chore.

The IronEase Pro has 8 unique time-saving design features that separate it from all other boards on the market, including the patented ShoulderWing Design that eliminates the common frustrations of ironing a collared shirt. These features have earned the IronEase Pro consistent five star ratings from happy customers on Amazon.com.
de Machinor’s ironing board is not only superior in design, but in quality as well. The IronEase Pro is constructed from rust-resistant steel instead of the synthetic plastic used by most ironing board manufacturers today, resulting in an ironing board that lasts several times as long as its competitors.

This ironing board is not your average el cheapo ironing board.  It is made with quality materials with a board that does not wear out, because it is made with metal, not plastic.  The Shoulder Wing system saves much time when ironing dress shirts.  I really am impressed with all this ironing board offers.  Indeed, I’m gushing about an ironing board.  Who knew I would ever do that?  In addition to finding this item at the deMachinor website, you can also find the IronEase Pro at Amazon.

 

Want to win one of these IronEase Pro ironing boards?!  Leave a comment on this post for a chance to win.  For an additional chance, you can follow de Machinor on Twitter, then leave an additional comment here telling us you did.

 

Are you from Canada?  You’ll be excited to know that the IronEase Pro is available there too!  Not only that, de Machinor is giving away an additional IronEase Pro to one of you from Canada!!!  Please specify in your comment if you are Canadian so that I can grab those entries for a separate random drawing.  Thanks!

 

I’ll draw two random winners (one U.S. and one Canada) on Tuesday, October 21.  Be watching for a post stating the winners as you will be responsible for contacting me if your name is chosen!

Something Is Wrong With This Picture

I wash dishes like this so often, I forget how it must look to a guest hanging out in my kitchen.

crazy gloves

What? It’s the best way to do dishes.

Two left handed gloves, one on each hand, two different colors.  Sometimes, on a day I feel wild and crazy, I’ll switch the gloves around, putting the blue one on my right hand and the purple one on my left.  Y’all, doing dishes is never boring at my house – I’ll tell you that right now.

You know what’s great about this post, and the picture, and all that seems rather pointless?  I actually do have a point.  Two points actually:

1.  Never worry about what people think about you when you’re washing dishes.  Two lefthanded gloves of different colors worn at the same time?  Why, we can establish a new dishwashing trend.

2.  If you use rubber gloves to wash dishes and one of the gloves gets a hole in it, save the glove that doesn’t have a hole.  Eventually, you can use it with another glove that has lost its mate.  You’ll save a lot of money doing this.  And I believe we’ve already established how cool you will look…not that we care what other people think.

In practicing this, sometimes my mismatched gloves end up being the same color.  Sometimes I actually end up with a left-handed and a right-handed pair of misfits.  But more often than not, I end up with two left-handed gloves of different colors.  It matters not.  They still work just fine.

And that, my friends, is my very helpful, money-saving homemaking tip for you today.

P.S.  This money-saving method does not apply to shoes or contact lenses.

I Might Have Gone a Little Bit Nuts This Month at Amazon…

With the recent announcement that after November 11, our Amazon Prime/Amazon Mom discount goes from 20% to 15% – I decided to really stock up during our October subscribe and save order.  I continued to find good deals on food we eat regularly, adding them to our order.  Before I knew it, the UPS man brought this:

amazon october 1

To be clear, the nine year old boy already lives here, the blue cooler was sitting out waiting for farm fresh milk pick-up, the flowers and pumpkins have been on our steps for over a week, and the sacks of apples were delivered last Sunday.  Amazon and UPS are good, but they’re not that good.

Did I blow my grocery budget for this month?  Why yes I did, thank you for asking.  Am I worried about it?  No, I’m not.  Because I regularly buy in bulk, or grocery budget is very small some months and very large other months.  This is obviously a large month.  Seeing as I bought the entire internet with this order, giving our family plenty to eat for quite some time, the next few months’ budget look to be quite a bit smaller.

What you see in the picture below is only a portion of our order.  There were a 6 t0 16 packs of pasta in each box, and I ordered six different kinds.  (That’s 80 pounds of pasta. God bless the UPS man and his back muscles.)  With good planning, I will not need to buy pasta until April, 2015.  I hope this plan works, as my boys never cease to amaze me with the amount of food we go through.

amazon october 2

I got two cases of toilet paper, a case of organic tortilla chips, a super discounted case of Izze soda for a treat, a case of salmon…here, I’ll give you a bullet list.  Some of the prices I paid are no longer available.  I used coupons for almost everything in my order, as well.  I soooo love combining my subscribe and save discount with coupon savings.  I get SUCH good deals this way!  Not all of these items have come in yet.  The UPS man will be busy making deliveries to our house the rest of this week.  :)

Shucks.  When it’s all listed out that way, it doesn’t really seem like much for my household.  It only looks huge when it seems that Amazon blew up all over my living room:

amazon october 4

Thankfully, we have many (almost) free blessings from our garden that help counter-balance our grocery spending.

amazon october 3

In case you were wondering, we did not grow that pineapple in our garden.  We Nebraskans are amazing, but we’re not that amazing.

Now that Amazon Prime/Mom perks are decreasing to 15%, I still plan to purchase subscribe and save items regularly.  How about you?  A 15% discount with coupons is still really, really good!  But hey, until November 11, we all still get 20% off – so you may want to join me in going nuts.  :)  Not only will you have lots of great groceries, you’ll receive fantastic boxes with which your kids can build forts and make messes in the living room.  My nine year old was glad to see the Izzes, the pasta, and the chips, but he was very, very excited to see the boxes that hold so much potential for him.

Here are more details about how Amazon Prime/Amazon Mom works with subscribe and save works to save money.  Be sure to keep up with our Amazon Deals page for all the latest deals!

How do you work your grocery budget?  Do you spend the same amount each month, or do you spend more some months when you stock up and less other months when you don’t need as much?

Gratituesday: Summer to Winter Clothes (Plus our Lilla Rose Winner)

gratituesday[2]

It used to be one of my most dreaded projects.  We have several tubs of clothes up in our attic.  Every fall and every spring we lug them down, finding what fits which boy each year.  While I’ve been ridiculously thankful for the amount of clothes we’ve had for our boys – most of them hand me downs – the chore of switching out clothes for the season was always long and exhausting.

This year though?  I am reminded how nice it is to have children old enough to be such a huge help.   We had the entire job done – from lugging down containers, to switching out clothes, to lugging them all back up – in one hour.  One hour.  Hallelujah!

summer to winter 1

This job used to take me two entire days.  That was back when the kids “helped” by resorting my piles thirty times, throwing shirts at each other, trying on clothes that were way too big or too small…you know the drill.  I loved that everyone just got right to it, got it done, and moved on with the day.

Best news of all:  I did not have to be the one to go into the attic.  I’m not a fan of the attic.  It has a little something to do with a bird attack I experienced a few years back.  I now put on my pitiful face and beg one of my boys to do the dirty work.  Love these boys!

summer to winter 2

This pile of clothes is heading to our bi-annual clothing exchange this weekend.

I’m so thankful God continues to provide plenty of clothing for my family – especially as their legs keep getting LONGER.  Wow.  I’m thrilled to have this task behind us for the year, and as much as I love summer, I will admit that it’s fun to pull out warm sweaters for this fall season!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

While I’ve got you, I wanted to announce our Lilla Rose Giveaway Winner:  Jill: ferryfam5@ – email me and I’ll put you in touch with Paula at Lilla Rose!

Dear Parents, You Are Awesome! {Last Day for $24 “Bless Your Parenting” Package Price!!}

curriculum story 14

The messages can play over and over in our heads like a broken record.  (If you don’t know what a broken record is, just…never mind.  They came before 8-Track Tapes.  Which came before Cassette Tapes.  Which came before CDs.  I actually remember them.  I played my Partidge Family record over and over until it broke.)  #childofthe70s

So, broken records.  In our heads, they can sound something like this as we parent our children:

  • I’m not doing enough…doing enoughdoing enough…doing enough
  • I’m inconsistent…inconsistent…inconsistentinconsistent
  • Other parents do it so much better…better…betterbetter…
  • Why can’t I get it right…right…rightright….

Hey, Mom.  Hey, Dad.  What you are right about is this:  You will never be a perfect parent.  You are human.  You have weaknesses.  <— Welcome to the Land of Normal.  I’ve been living here a long time.  At first, I though it was the Land of Crazy.  Then, God reminded me that He is my strength, and that in my weakness, I am never alone.  It’s the Land of Normal – also known as the land of I Desperately Need Jesus.

Why you are a beautiful parent is because of this:  You work hard.  You pray.  You ask God to help you raise your children.  You strive to be better.  You love your kids so much you can’t see straight.  You are intentional.  You seek wisdom.  You recognize your need to let others help.  You are a wonderful, beautiful parent.

Truly, you are awesome.  Every one of you.

Allow your mind to see some snap-shots of your day.  Not the ones where you didn’t measure up to your perfect parenting standards.  Ain’t nobody got time to focus on regrets.  See the snap-shots of your beautiful moments.  The moments you poured a glass of milk and she slurped it up.  The moments you read him a favorite book for the 56th time.  The moments you did something mundane like shake out the rug and put it back on the floor.  The moments you kissed a cheek, wiped snot off a nose, and enjoyed listening to a belly laugh.  The moments you listened to a song with your teenager.  The moments you got the laundry to the dryer before it got sour.  The moments you said, “Good job.”

Your days are full of beautiful moments.  How do I know this?  Because I know that is how God works.  Because He is in our lives, there is goodness.  He is all things goodness.  He works and lives through you.  This is how I know you’re awesome.  This is how I know of the beauty that pours out of your home.

I applaud you, Parents.  I give you a high five and a fist bump.  I cheer you on, knowing that you are cheering me on, too.  We parent confidently, because the secret is out: We have Superpowers.  We’re strongest when we’re on our knees.

Praise God for the way He works through you as you raise your kids!  He is good, He brings all things good, He works all things together for good.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I’m excited to share with you some snap-shots sent in from beautiful parents like you:

Renee emailed to say, “Thank you for the wonderful Learn your Letters, Learn to Serve curriculum! Today we had so much fun making church, cross, and our own creativity cutout cookies! Can you guess the letter? Your time, effort, and ideas are wonderful! 

curriculum story 12

We are truly loving the flow and approach to this curriculum. It’s been fun to use it as a foundation and then adapt to our family. We ended up giving a handful of cookies to the church workers then as our service. The little learner is Liliana, our oldest of two, and she is three. On to D….”

curriculum story 11

Natasha shared, “I did ‘A’ with my little two year old and decided it was way too much work for ME at this point for his retention level, so I’ll have a go at it next year. BUT we had already been memorizing verses, so for MY retention we are doing the alphabet sequence [from Learn Your Letters, Learn to Serve].

curriculum story 13

He’s got down through “C” already plus the ones we had already done. It’s so precious to hear his little voice try to say, “anxiety” (1 peter 5:7) and then “Because he cares for YOU!” And then he ALWAYS adds, “cares for ME. Me and you.” 

curriculum story 15

I love hearing testimonies about how Learn Your Letters, Learn to Serve is blessing your family.  I love hearing that you’re getting your kids in the kitchen to teach them how to cook.  I love, love, love hearing how you’re teaching them Jesus and teaching them to serve others!!!

Menu Plan for the Week, Plus the Best Way to Wash the Car

I should never be surprised anymore when I see my kids doing something “the boy way.”  Just last week, Matt sent one of our boys to scrub something off the side of our van.  Here’s what I came across when I saw him doing the job:

washing the car

Why go to the trouble of walking all the way upstairs to get the real spray bottle when you can just use a water gun, right?  Of course, this means it’s very easy to squirt unsuspecting brothers who happen to be walking by…

In other news, we had a wonderful houseful of company all weekend!  We ate like kings and queens, visited like there’s no tomorrow, and while the guys golfed, the girls shopped.  I love my boys so much, but when I have a chance to shop with females?  Well, it is lovely.

Cheesy Cauliflower Cakes

Heya, have you tried this Cheesy Cauliflower Cakes recipe yet?  If not, you really must.  They taste like hashbrowns, only better.  The pickiest of my kids love them.  They are a fantastic way to eat cauliflower.  (Actually, if you ask me, they are the only way to eat cauliflower.)

Without further ado, here is our menu plan for this week:

Sunday, October 12
Breakfast potluck at church – taking banana bread and apples
Leftovers from the weekend feasting
Grilled cheese, homemade tomato soup, pickles, olives, cucumbers with ranch

Monday, October 13
Blueberry coffee cake, applesauce
Barbecue beef and cheese hot pockets, pineapple mango smoothies with spinach tossed in, carrot sticks
Baked three cheese chicken pasta, tossed salad, asparagus

Tuesday, October 14
Pumpkin chocolate chip muffins, scrambled eggs, pears
Potato soup with ham, carrots and cucumbers with ranch, apples
Salmon patties, cheesy cauliflower cakes, steamed broccoli

Wednesday, October 15

Pizza boats, nectarines, sweet peppers
Taco potatoes with lettuce and tomatoes, fresh pineapple

Thursday, October 16
Quick mix pancakes with frozen berries tossed in
Taco corn fritters, tossed salad, pears
Turkey sausage and red bean stew, cornbread

Friday, October 17

Sloppy cornbread muffins, peas, cucumbers and carrots
