Taste of Country Life

Elevate Your Spring Brunch If you’ll be hosting friends and family for brunch this spring, make your gathering as simple as it is scrumptious with a decadent brunch menu. If you’re daunted by the diversity of dishes a brunch menu demands, remember that quality ingredients – not complex preparation – is what makes dishes truly stand out. Fresh produce and superior products instantly elevate a recipe from good to great. These brunch staples all start as basics, but get a boost with the right combination of quality ingredients: Made-to-order omelets are always a

hit because they guarantee you’re serving up exactly what your guests enjoy. Use a few winning ingredients to create an easy and quick omelet base, then offer an array of toppings, including unexpected flavors such as Jarlsberg brand cheese. Best known for its classic wedge, this nutty, mild cheese is also available in slices – perfect for the ooey-gooey factor everyone loves in an omelet. A classic French quiche combines fresh and flavorful ingredients, is easy to make and tastes delicious hot or cold. The quiche is simple enough to make that you can prepare several varieties, giving guests

plenty of options and handily filling a buffet spread. Simply prepare your crust and filling base then mix in fresh, crisp veggies that are steamed or lightly browned. Or create a savory, meaty quiche with your favorite sausage or bacon. Add some cheese before filling the crust and sprinkle some more cheese on top before baking. Finger foods bursting with flavor simply make brunch better. This recipe uses ready-rolled puff pastry sheets, rosemary and the distinctive taste of Jarlsberg Brand Cheese for a mouthwatering dish that can be featured at a tasting station or as part of a larger meal.

Easy Brunch Omelet Makes: 4 portions Toppings: mushrooms chorizo, bacon or ham cherry tomatoes spring onions herbs Omelet: 8 eggs 8 tablespoons water or milk 2 tablespoons butter 8 slices Jarlsberg Cheese 8 slices ham salt and pepper, to taste Prepare toppings. Fry mushrooms and chorizo, bacon or ham; cut cherry tomatoes and spring onions. To make omelet, crack eggs in bowl and add water, salt and pepper. Whisk eggs until they turn a pale yellow color, about 25-35 whisks. Heat frying pan on medium heat and melt butter. When butter is bubbly, add about one quarter of the egg batter. This will make one of four omelets. When batter starts setting, move hardened parts toward the middle, enabling the rest to get direct heat as well. Use a gentle hand to avoid scrambled eggs. When batter starts to look cooked, add cheese and meat and flip omelet over. The omelet should be slightly golden on fried side and a little runny and soft in the middle.

Royal Roost

Let’s Raise Backyard Chickens

Karen Krumenacher has been raising chickens, bantam chickens, ducks, turkeys, guinea hens for the last 17 years right here in Wisconsin. Karen and her husband moved out of the city and into an old farmhouse. With her love for the outdoors, she needed something more than just her beloved cocker spaniel, Bentley II. After her first visit to Merton Feed to pick up dog food and wild bird seed, she came home with four chicks. As they grew and started producing eggs, Karen was amazed at how easy and rewarding it was to have “Royal Charmers”. Karen started Royal Roost four years ago because of her passion, experience and love of raising these critters, plus chickens produce an egg every 24 to 36 hours. Karen considers herself a “Chickens Raising Consultant”. Most of her consultations take place at clients homes. She helps you decide where to place a coop, suggest what type of coop, supplies you will need, what breed of chicken to get and overall care and preventative maintenance of your flock of happy hens.

Services that Royal Roost provides: n Consulting. n Coop design and set up. n Landscaping around your coop that is chicken friendly. n Coop Cleaning and waste removal. n Education on breeds, lifecycle of a chicken and overall maintenance of your flock. n Chicken sitting. Planning on being gone, Karen comes and checks on your flock to collect eggs, fill food and water. n Recently Karen has started to make and sell homemade egg bakes, egg nests and quiches. You can find order forms and information at Roost at Lynndale Farms. 8 Reasons To Raise Your Own Backyard Chickens 1. Backyard entertainment. 2. Easy and low cost to start-up and maintain. 3. Fresh eggs. 4. Compost—any fruit or veggie scraps you produce in the

WISCONSIN COUNTRY LIFE

Royal Roost kitchen can be given to the chickens. 5. Pest control. 6. Great responsibility for children. 7. Topic of conversation with friends and family. 8. Therapeutic. A cause near and dear to Karens heart is the Key West Wildlife Center in Key West, Florida. Two dollars from each one of her Royal Roost t-shirts sold is donated to the center. The center rescues and rehabs Key West chickens that roam freely on the island. During spring, Karen gives many presentations at local places like Merton Feed Mill, Friends of Nature and Roost at Lynndale Farms. Even Karens’ children have started raising chickens. Chickens are an easy pet for children of all ages to care for. Care begins when we get 1-day old chicks. Her children, collect eggs, fill food, water and clean the coops—3 to 4 times a year. The best is watching children interact and spending quality time with them. For more information about Royal Roost, visit www.myroyalroost.com. Like our page on Facebook–Royal Roost. n

Home with Country Life... Inspiring ways to bring country style into your home.

Celebrate Spring The vibrant yellow of forsythia, paired with the welcome shades of green foliage that herald the arrival of spring, is celebrated in this cheerful arrangement. Monches Farm’s designer Sue Morgan has been creating floral art for over 25 years. She would be happy to work with you to create a custom piece for your home using your design colors and reflecting your personal style. Call her at Monches Farm at 262-966-2787 for a consultation. To create this piece Sue used everlasting florals and dried natural materials: Tall, narrow container (Sue used an 18” tall textured slate container) Block of dried floral foam 12 stems forsythia (everlasting) 3 stems green ruscus foliage (everlasting) Large handful of angel vine (dried natural) To begin, cut the floral foam to fit the container you’ve chosen and glue it in place. Next, glue the forsythia stems evenly throughout the foam block, angling some outward and some upward. Now, glue the ruscus stems around base of arrangement, bending them downward to trail over edge of container. And finally, gently fill in blank spaces at the base of the arrangement with dried angel vine, allowing the vine to weave through the arrangement and spill over the sides of the container n
