Lifestyle Letter

Welcome to July! It's time to slow down. I

’m the kind of person who never gets bored. No matter how dull the day, I’ll find something to do. Been that way since I was a child. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not someone who's always on the move. When my time’s up, I can go peacefully if I never run with the Pamplona bulls, climb Kilimanjaro or see Paul McCartney. My conundrum is not finding things to do; it’s finding time in which to do them. I guess that’s why July is, to me, such an interesting month. It’s not like a look forward to July. I hate the heat. July heat is what makes me such a fan of Willis Carrier and James Burrough. But this is the month where time seems to slow down. This is due almost entirely to school being out of session. Back in the day, school lingered into the first week of June. By the latter part of August, it was time to go back. But in July the calendar was clear. In my neighborhood we would play baseball in a field behind the church, using the sanctuary’s outer brick wall as a backstop. There was even a chain link fence in the outfield, a little over 200 feet from home plate, and a driveway that cut through the field on a path that approximated the infield dirt of a real stadium. There would be at least seven or eight players per side. The games would begin before noon and not end until it was pitch black. We’d only break to go home for lunch and dinner. By the time we were 12 or 13 years old we outgrew the field and the games, like the waning days of summer, began to fade. Time never moves more slowly than it does on a Sunday afternoon in July. Instead of playing ball, I’d make sure to hang out by the pool all day, just as I try to do as an adult. That’s why I’m always nostalgic on the last Sunday of July. Because August, sweltering as it may be, is the season of change. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. But the clock begins to accelerate. This year, for the first time in five years, the last Sunday in July falls on the last day of the month. It’s like squeezing every possible moment out of the slowest month of the year. I’m looking forward to that. I hope you are, too. Ed Atlas, Editor Ed.Atlas@LifestylePubs.com

Reconnecting with the Stories Behind the Food We Eat

FARM-TO-TABLE TREND SHOWS NO SIGNS OF SLOWING DOWN ARTICLE ALLIE WINDOM | PHOTOGRAPHY PROVIDED

What did you have for lunch today? Do you know where it came from? How far did it travel to make it to your plate? According to Steven Bailey, Farm Director at Homestead Manor in Thompson’s Station, our food travels an average of 1500 miles (and several days—or sometimes even weeks) before it’s prepared and served to us. And to make matters worse, most of us don’t have a clue as to where our meal's "journey" began. The concept of “farm-to-table” dining has become increasingly popular in recent years, and the movement seeks to close that knowledge and distance gap surrounding the food we eat. It’s gaining momentum and popularity all over the United States, and Bailey believes that’s for good reason. “There is something in us that wants to be connected to our food,” he says, and that visceral connection to nature

is what he believes is driving the farm-to-table movement and its constant growth. Unlike traditional sourcing channels that cart frozen foods and ingredients across the country (or even the world), farmto-table restaurants use ingredients from providers in their local community, state, or nearby region. More restaurants are hoping to create and foster relationships with local farmers, and Homestead Manor takes this notion one step further. The restaurant does in fact use meats from middle Tennessee farmers, but they also operate a fully functioning farm right outside, and they grow all of their own produce and herbs on site. In stark contrast to the 1500-mile adventure of commercially processed CONTINUED >

and batched food, Bailey says that vegetables served in the restaurant were likely harvested within the previous 24 hours, and travel less than 100 yards from the ground to the kitchen to the plate. Farm-to-table dining is an opportunity to educate people about the processes of agriculture. “We don’t ask enough questions about our food,” Bailey says, and he wants more people to be able to see the work and extensive care that goes into the food they eat. At Homestead Manor, intentional education is built-in to the dining experience. Patrons can have a meal at the restaurant, then take a tour of the farm grounds to see the story behind their meal. “This is what I want,” Bailey says, “My dream has been to continue to be able to tell the story.” 18

Brentwood Lifestyle | July 2016

Bailey works closely with Corey King, Homestead Manor's executive chef, to develop recipes based on what will be harvested in the coming days from the farm’s many gardens. Bailey and his crew harvest produce and herbs at least twice a week, and King puts his culinary expertise to work in creating delicious, unique dishes for the restaurant menu. While plenty restaurants like Homestead Manor offer a full farm-to-table meal and experience, you don’t necessarily have to eat out all the time to support the movement. Bailey encourages people to be curious about their food by planting their own vegetable garden or simply buying from local farmers at a nearby market. Homestead Manor hosts the Thompson’s Station Farmers’ Market, but it’s only one of many great places where you can meet local farmers and learn more about your food.

ARTICLE JAY WILKE | PHOTOGRAPHY ED ATLAS AND PROVIDED

S

ummertime is here and that means it’s time to fire up the grill. Just step outside on any evening and you’re sure to smell some kind of smoky grilling going on. After taking in the tantalizing aroma of sizzling burgers or steaks, you may decide that it’s time to brush up on your skills or maybe even purchase a new grill. If so, the Hearth & Grill Shop on Thompson Lane in Nashville is a great place to go. With 42 years in the grill business, Jeff Lunsford knows what he’s talking about when it comes to anything related to grills. His store carries gas grills, charcoal grills, Weber grills, Big Green Eggs, topof-the-line FireMagic grills and pretty much any part or accessory you might need to keep your grill in top shape. “Whichever you choose, don’t just buy the cheapest grill,” says Lunsford. “Get one that you know parts and accessories will be available.” The first thing to determine when purchasing a new grill is whether you want charcoal or gas. There are many notable differences that should be considered. Some people prefer the easy maintenance and reliability of a gas grill, while others swear by the smoky flavor that comes from charcoal. “Gas is easier to light and maintain the temperature,” says Lunsford. “It’s also more versatile.” 20

Brentwood Lifestyle | July 2016


With a gas grill, you can simply fire it up and be cooking in a matter of minutes. They’re easy to use and control and even help aid in self-cleaning. “Charcoal provides a smokier flavor but usually you need to clean out the old ash, light and wait for the coals to ‘get right’ before cooking,” says Lunsford. “Maintaining temperature is harder because a charcoal grill will sometimes burn out before you are through cooking.”

“Trial and error with cooking is one of the fun things about grilling,” Lunsford says. “You can cook just about everything on a grill.” He recommends using a good natural hardwood charcoal and steer clear of lighter fluid for starting up the grill. He notes that some people seem to think that the taste of the starter fluid is

the actual charcoal flavor. Instead, he says to use an electric starter or starter blocks without added chemicals. For maintenance, it’s recommended that you burn off the excess grease after use on a gas grill. You also need to occasionally give the cooking grids a good brushing (soap and water, once in a while) and remove the burner once a year to clean the ports. For charcoal grills, you need to clean the grid the same as a gas grill. Make sure that you don’t leave charcoal ash in the bottom of the grill. When it’s finally time to do some grilling, a good spatula and tongs are really all the equipment that you need. Since cooking times and measurements vary, it’s sometimes hard to give an exact recipe. “Trial and error with cooking is one of the fun things about grilling,” Lunsford says. “You can cook just about everything on a grill.” He recommends grilling burgers and steaks at a high temperature. In order to produce good results, sear both sides on high heat, then gradually turn the heat down to medium.

Chicken and seafood are generally cooked at a low to medium heat. “The main thing is to be sure not to overcook,” he says. “Stay with it and test frequently for doneness.” For bratwursts and other sausages, he finds that low to medium heat works best. Since most sausages usually produce a lot of grease, he says that you shouldn’t put the grill on high and then leave. Always keep an eye on them. He also recommends grilling vegetables directly on the cooking grid as the flavor of the smoke and grill will work its way into the veggies. “The grilled flavor that everyone loves comes from the grease dripping down on the hot coals and making smoke,” he says. “This not only helps get rid of a lot of the grease, but it makes everything taste wonderful.” With proper maintenance, there is no reason why a gas grill won’t last 10 to 20 years. A charcoal grill is generally not as ruggedly built, but should still last a decade or more. At the Hearth & Grill Shop, they are still selling replacement parts for gas grills that are well over 30 years old. If you’re dreaming of serving up delicious steaks, chops and skewers on the grill, there’s no day like today to get rolling with your own tradition. Perhaps it’s time the mouthwatering smoke and smell of barbecuing meat in the air comes from your backyard. July 2016 | Brentwood Lifestyle

Summer is Best When Safety is First BE SAFE WITH TIPS FROM PEDIATRIC ER DOCTOR, CRISTINA ESTRADA. ARTICLE HOLLY COWAN | PHOTOGRAPHY PROVIDED

S

ummer is in full swing and our kids are in full outside mode. It’s as it should be because summer is a time to explore, play and, well, have fun being a kid. But as Dr. Cristina Estrada notes, it’s also a time when emergency rooms are full from summertime accidents. As a pediatric emergency medicine physician with Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital Vanderbilt at Williamson Medical Center, Dr. Estrada knows firsthand the importance of preventive measures. She shares tips on how you can keep your loved ones safe outdoors, in the water and on the playground.

INSECT BITE SAFETY

“We are blessed with many wonderful wooded areas around here, so it’s important to make sure children are adequately covered in insect repellant,” says Dr. Estrada. Even so, with tick-borne illnesses such as Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and the Zika virus which comes from mosquitoes, parents need to prepare in case bites do occur. Dr. Estrada advises that to remove a tick properly parents should use tweezers or small forceps to grasp the tick as close as possible to the skin. Without tweezers, use paper or cloth to protect your fingers as you remove the tick. Then, pull straight up gently, but firmly with steady pressure making sure to keep the tick intact. After removing the tick, disinfect the skin and wash your hands with soap and water. When should you be concerned about an insect bite? If there is excessive redness, drainage or any sign of infection, you should see your physician. With a tick bite specifically, “Concerns multiply if there is fever, headache, abdominal pain or rash. While those are vague symptoms and we don’t have a magic test that will lead us to a tick-borne illness, it’s important to monitor exposure and be aware of symptoms.” Dr. Estrada goes on to say, “We treat a lot of these cases empirically to prevent full-blown diseases.” WATER SAFETY

Unfortunately, drownings and water-related injuries are all too common this time of year. That’s why, according to Dr. Estrada, water safety is a crucial preventive measure. 24

Brentwood Lifestyle | July 2016

As children are curious by nature, there’s always a risk when they’re in the water, even in pools with lifeguards on duty. Dr. Estrada states, “It’s every parent’s obligation to watch over their children. Floaties and life vests aren’t enough.” She goes on to say, “We encourage families to not only provide visual supervision, but touch supervision as well. There needs Dr. Cristina Estrada to be someone in the pool who isn’t more than an arm’s length away at any time.” Water-related injuries often happen very quickly and while your child may be able to swim, that doesn’t necessarily mean they are entirely out of harm’s way. “We’ve seen instances where a child swallows water or falls into a pool. They are caught off-guard, get anxious and forget everything they’ve learned,” says Dr. Estrada. However that does not discount the importance of learning to swim. She states, “I recommend starting swim lessons as early as possible. There are amazing programs all over Williamson County.” PLAYGROUND SAFETY

Playgrounds provide endless amounts of fun this time of year. Unfortunately they can also provide a variety of orthopedic and head injuries. Dr. Estrada again recommends touch supervision as a key preventive measure. While it’s particularly hard for parents of multiple children to physically be with each one all the time, the goal should be to remain as close by as possible. “We recommend parents be spotters when children are climbing on monkey bars,” and that kids stay “in an area that isn’t beyond their developmental stage while at the playground,” says Dr. Estrada. Practice these summer safety tips and reward your family with a season of fun memories that will last a lifetime.

on’t bother to turn on the stove or set the dinning room table. Fire up the grill instead. It's time to get outdoors to eat, drink, and

enjoy every glorious minute of summer. Here are the best tips to help you host the best backyard bash of the summer.

Timing is Everything

Summertime heat can be draining and put a damper on the fun so

Host the

avoid midday gatherings. Host a brunch before noon, a late afternoon barbecue or evening dinner party that will be more comfortable and enjoyable.

Keep the Bugs Away

You want your guest to eat the food, not be the food. Keep annoying

mosquitos away with strategically placed Citronella candles. Pretreatment of your yard with a mosquito barrier treatment prior to your party is a good idea, too. Hire a licensed and state-certified company to do the job.

Get Your Grub On

Chose a menu that can be prepared mostly on the grill. Plan ahead

and marinate meats and vegetables. This step alone will have your guests calling you a barbecue master. Be sure to choose food items that can withstand the summer heat. Avoid salads with mayonnaise. Pasta salads are easy and can be jazzed up with jarred or homecanned fixings like sun dried tomatoes, roasted bell peppers, olives, and oil-based dressings. Want a menu that is easy and fun? Go with grilled pizza. Both savory and sweet. Try a grilled brie and fresh berry pizza drizzled with balsamic glaze and topped with fresh basil.

Drink and Be Merry

Leave that dusty cooler in the garage and set up a drink station to

keep everyone happy with lots of cold drinks. Step it up and invest in a large tub to chill your drinks. Another great option is to roll your beverage cart outside and add a self-serve drink dispenser on top.

It’s Game Time

Even at laid back shindigs, it is a good idea to set out a few outdoor

games to keep the fun going. Think easy games - like horseshoes, bocce

ball or spades - that can be played while holding a refreshing drink in one hand. For family gatherings, set up the sprinkler and pull out the water guns for the kids. You might want to even try one of those water balloon gadgets that actually work. They fill lots of balloons in less than a minute.

Let the Music Play

Don’t forget the music. Have your playlist ready to stream or use

Pandora as an easy way to get the music flowing. Be the first to bust a move at your own party. Dancing counts as entertainment, too.

Let There Be Light

For evening events, lighting is the single most important decor

item. Using string lights, lanterns, and candles throughout the yard really set the scene for the party. String lights are the best choice for the most impact. They are affordable, reusable, and easy to install. Plus there are so many stylish options like mini flamingo or metal star string lights (Don’t be tempted to pull out those Christmas lights). 30

Creating Beautiful Smiles

“I have had the opportunity to travel abroad to many different and amazing countries for modeling, been featured in countless magazines and advertisements, walked across the stage at Miss USA. Now I’m enjoying my passion of creating beauty daily at my salon in downtown Franklin. My smile, whether meeting a new client or posing for a picture, is always noticed and commented upon. Each and every time I’m asked, I recommend Dr. Kemp!” ~ Kristen Motil Miss Tennessee 2009

After completing her role within the Miss USA pageant, Kristen continues to model. She also has become one of the industry’s most successful hair and makeup artists. In 2013 Kristen took charge of a small team that worked backstage doing hair and makeup at Paris Fashion Week. In addition to helping shape the designer’s vision and leading the team toward that goal, Kristen accepted the coveted role of modeling the finale dress to close the show, one of her long held dreams.
