Dear Readers,

H

EDITORIAL DIRECTOR Mary McFarland CREATIVE DIRECTOR/GRAPHIC DESIGN Kristina Case - Simply Graphic

appy pumpkin season! October has been taken over by pumpkin everything. You might remember my pumpkin Rumchata martini recipe from last year. I’ve posted it again in our DIY page. Since writing that I’ve discovered many more delicious pumpkin recipes, most notable pumpkin French toast. I’ll be making that this weekend. Look for it on my Pinterest page under “autumn.” Speaking of pumpkins be sure and read our feature on all of the pumpkin patches, mazes and festivals.

It’s hard to believe that summer is over and it’s fall already, today I am looking at blue skies and highs in the 70’s. I know it won’t last long so Otis and I are heading to the Greenbelt to take in all of the changing foliage. This is definitely the time of year that I appreciate the beauty of our little town. The trees put on a show that seems to change daily.

FEEDBACK / STORY IDEAS press@mytowninformer.com

Another favorite thing about this time of year is football. I’ve been going to the Gathering Place to watch my Vandals on Saturdays. It’s a fun time to celebrate with lifelong friends. Of course, I still love my Steelers but I am weary of all of the politics that have infiltrated the sport. It feels like our Country is going backwards in time. Divisiveness is everywhere. Personally, I choose to stay out of it all. I am kinder to my neighbors, strangers and drivers. We have choices to make in our lives and I refuse to let the media dictate my behavior.

press@mytowninformer.com

October is of course also Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Please schedule your mammograms and remind someone you love to do the same. I am happily 10 years clear of the nasty disease!

Happy fall!

FALL: TASTE • SIP • DECORATE PUMPKIN SPICE SNACK MIX princesspinkgirl.com Mix together:

Taste

• Honey Nut Chex cereal • Pretzels • Caramel Bugles • Butter • Brown Sugar • Pumpkin Pie Spice • Vanilla Extract • Boo-terscotch M&M’s • Harvest candy mix

(candy corn, candy pumpkins)

• Reese’s Pieces

PUMPKIN SPICE MARTINI

My all time favorite fall cocktail

Sip

2 parts RumChata Cream Liqueur

• • •

1 part vanilla vodka 1 part pumpkin liqueur Top with whipped cream and cinnamon or nutmeg

Decorate

I like to keep my fall décor more generic than so much Halloween. Let orange, more muted colors with a touch of horror that can easily be removed from the display to keep until Thanksgiving. A few favorite looks are chalk paint pumpkins, pinecones and candles. For a touch of scary try adding some black birds to your outdoor display. Also a simple spooky silhouette is always a little creepy and super easy to remove after Halloween.

Shake and strain. YUM! You can substitute pumpkin puree for the liqueur for a less sweet version.

Have a happy fall! Proud to be in Eagle 35 years! | evansbuildingcenter.com

Last summer, local writer Elaine Ambrose was wasting time scrolling through Facebook posts when a video grabbed her attention. A young man was pedaling older people outside – and the passengers were laughing. She investigated the organization, called Cycling Without Age, and discovered the volunteers also captured stories from their passengers. She immediately applied to start an affiliate chapter in Idaho in memory of her late mother and because she is a storyteller. The Premiere Party for the new “trishaw” will be Monday, October 16 starting at 4:00 pm at the covered patio next to Olive and Vyne at North Channel Center, 600 South Rivershore Lane in Eagle. Guests will become “Charter Cheerleaders” for the program and can register on Eventbrite at this link: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/cycling-withoutage-in-eagle-tickets-38312832714. Cycling Without Age started in 2012 in Copenhagen, Denmark, by Ole Kassow. He wanted to help the elderly experience outside adventures because so many were immobile and hadn’t ridden a bicycle in decades. He bought a trishaw and started offering free rides to residents of local nursing homes. The phenomenon reached worldwide appeal and now there are more than 450 chapters throughout the world. Two other chapters are being organized in Idaho; one in Nampa and one in Coeur d’Alene. “Affiliate chapters are required to purchase and use trishaws manufactured in Denmark,” said Ambrose.

Logistics proved to be complicated. The trishaw was shipped in a wooden container that measured 6’ X 4’ X 4’. The delivery company required a loading dock with a forklift, so Ambrose enlisted the help of her husband, Ken McKay. He works at HB Specialty Foods in Nampa, and the business has several warehouses with the necessary equipment. The box was delivered to Nampa, and Ambrose cajoled her son-in-law John Davidson to bring the container to her home in Eagle.

“The experience will bring joy to passengers, pilots, and the community,” said Ambrose. “And, I’ll envision my late mother Leona Ambrose riding, smiling, and waving. She would have loved it.”

FITNESS OVER FIFTY

25 Simple Ways to be Fit It's not as complicated as you think.

Far too often fitness is presented as complicated and confusing. Nothing could be farther from the truth.  Being fit comes from living the following simple everyday practices:

• Throw out your big dinner plates. Using small plates at home

effortlessly reduces calorie intake and promotes weight loss.

• Make exercise a regular part of your life. Create a network of accountability with workout partners or by working with me, your local fitness expert.

• Know what you want to accomplish. Visualize the end result of your hard work. Write down your goals.

• Believe in you. I know that you CAN accomplish your goals. • Drink water all day long. • Know when to ask for help. • Forget will-power; it’s about WANT-power. How badly do you want it.

• Limit processed foods. These items are high in empty

calories and contain a plethora of chemicals that are harmful to your health. Stick to real foods that aren’t in packages.

• Fat contains twice the caloric density of carbohydrates and protein, so limit the amount of it that you eat to healthy fats. Fill your diet with lean protein and carbohydrates from leafy plants and whole grains with a small amount of healthy fats.

• It’s OK to be a skeptic. Watch out for products that are

labeled as ‘health food’. Always read the nutrition labels and make your own informed opinion.

• Pay attention to everything that

you eat. Keep a food journal once in a while to stay on track.

• Keep consistent. Exercise at least three or four times each week.

• Expect more from yourself. • Never eat High Fructose Corn

Syrup. It spikes your blood sugar levels and encourages your body to store fat.

Print this list and place it somewhere that you'll se it everyday!

• Eat plenty of whole plant foods.

Vegetables, fruits and whole grains are filled with fiber and antioxidants, great for good health and weight loss.

• Breakfast should be a balance of carbohydrates, protein, and healthy fat to get your metabolism going strong.

• If you know that you deserve better...then go get it. • Challenge yourself during each workout. Try something new and exciting.

• Set specific, measurable goals and track your progress. • Even if they are whole grain, eat carbohydrates sparingly. Carbohydrates are quickly stored as fat.

• Put an end to your struggle to get and stay fit. Call or email me today to get started on a proven fitness program that will change your life and body forever.

• Talk is cheap. Act now and get the job done. • Exercise with people that are in better shape than you. This will encourage you to push your limits.

• Never indulge in negative self-talk. never give you a positive life.

A negative mind will

• Don’t drink calories.

This is the fastest way to add extra unwanted calories to your waistline!

MAKE YOUR OWN

Save money by making your favorite cup of coffee or espresso drink at home.

COFFEEHOUSE DRINKS by Kristina Case

HOMEMADE LATTES (Mocha, vanilla or caramel) www.forinthekitchen.com

2 shots of espresso or 1/4 cup strong coffee 8 ounces whole milk Optional add-ins: 2 1/2 Tablespoons mini-chocolate chips 2 Tablespoons caramel sauce 1 Tablespoon vanilla paste Whipped cream Brew espresso or strong coffee. Pour milk into a mason jar and microwave for 1 minute. Depending on your microwave, you may need to continue heating in 30 second increments up to two minutes. You want the milk hot, but not boiling. If making a mocha, add in chocolate chips. For a vanilla latte, add vanilla paste and stir. If making a caramel latte, add in caramel sauce and stir. Put the lid on the mason jar, and shake vigorously for at least 1 minute to foam milk, (or you can use a frother for this part). You may want to hold the jar with a towel if it’s too hot to hold. Pour into espresso. Top with whipped cream or drizzle as desired. Serve immediately.

Fabulous Fall Color

O

• This year try corn stalks, pumpkins, mums, millet, ornamental cabbage, swan gourds, rudbeckia, and a fall wreath for an inviting front porch.

ur nights are crisp and the leaves will be turning deep red, orange and yellow over the next few weeks. I love this time of year; the weather is perfect for hiking, bike riding and entertaining outside. This month is the time you should divide your perennials, plant spring bulbs, rake/compost your leaves and refresh your entryway for yourself and visitors. October is a great time to dress up your front porch with a beautiful display of fall color. Here are some of my favorite recipes for fall decorating. Enjoy Idaho's beautiful weather this month! See you in the garden, Dennis
