Iced Mocha Latte~A Country Girl's Hack


Coffee is very much a mainstay on most farms.  You might have seen pictures of a farmer warming his hands around a steaming hot cup of Joe.  Sometimes they just hold the cup to warm up their cold fingers from milking cows or feeding livestock With farmers answering that internal early alarm going off in their head, it's nice to give the rest of the body a bit of a boost to catch up with its top part.  See what happens when farmers drink coffee???? 


Sigh...... God Bless Sam Elliot!  Well maybe it doesn't quite happen that way, but most farmers are a bit more easy-going AFTER they have had their coffee!

One of my favorite stories to tell is about a trip to the Big Town, Indianapolis, and talking to a salesperson as I check out of one of the fun stores in Indy's Circle Center Mall.  She was all bummed, so I asked her what was wrong.  She proceeded to lament the fact that because of construction, she had to an extra mile to find Starbucks for her daily fun coffee drink.  I chuckled and told her, "Honey, I have to drive about 30 miles to get to a Starbucks store."  I think it took her a while to process that horrific bit of information...... Ah,.... the list of differences between the country mouse and the city mouse just got bigger.

When I do get to visit an urban coffee shop, I have the dangedest time trying to figure out how to order what I want.  I just can't pop in or go through the drive-through and say, " Hi! I would like a mochalattedoubleespressoandrealcreamtwosquirtsofmochaplease!" I'm not even sure of what I said. It's more like, "Hi, I'm not sure what the name is, but I want coffee with cream, espresso, sugar-free chocolate and hazelnut syrups......on ice please." Gah!

Now that we ladies are taking to the field, many of us are also fond of our morning java, but some of us out here like a bit more in our coffee besides, well, coffee.  We are hard-pressed out here in the country to find a java roasting oasis within five miles of home. Here's my solution to this dilemma.

I have survived this most horrid gap between myself and "civilized coffee" by making my own. During six months of the year, I drink it hot, and thanks to our fickle Indiana weather, I'm just now transitioning over to the other side with iced coffee.  Want to know my secret? 


Iced Mocha Lattes

Here is what you will need, kind of.  Base your drink on what you like.  I usually use decaf instant coffee unless I really need a kick in the pants.  The flavorings are all subject to the creator's tastes. Have fun with this Peeps!


I have to remind you that I am not a measuring kind of cook by nature, but let the record state I really tried to measure this all out for you who like numbers.

For this tumbler, I went with three spoonfuls of instant coffee.  Tall Guy used to drink coffee, especially when he went out to milk at 4:00 in the morning during those cold months, but now the caffeine kind of messes with his sleep.  I use instant because I don't need to drink a whole pot full myself.   


To start putting the yummy in this drink, I add 2 spoonfuls of chocolate creamer and ......


2 spoonfuls of hazelnut creamer.


I like to shake this stuff up before pouring in the liquids.


While I'm mixing the dry parts of this potion, I'm boiling some water in the microwave. Pour about a cup over the dry ingredients, and stir.



Like this!


Next, I add some ice and three secret ingredients that make this iced mocha The.Bomb.

The first ingredient will make any dairy farmer tickled pink!  Yep, I put REAL CREAM in my coffee, about a 1/4 of a cup for a drink this big.  It's MOOOOOrvalous!



Next, add some Skinny Syrup, English toffee flavor! YUM!  Seriously Peeps!  Use Amazon Prime and order what you want.  Why?  You will get what you want in just 2 days or less, AND more flavors are available online.  I've also found that grocery stores usually do not carry the brands I like in the flavors I like.  Again, gotta keep it easy-peasy!


And on those very cold or long or special mornings, I just might add a wee bit of Kahlua. Hey, it tastes better than the flavored syrup.  No judging!


Fill the cup up with ice, and maybe leave a little room to pour some of your hot water left over the ice to help along the melting process.  Ah..... Now I can sit back, drink my yummy iced mocha latte and watch the dark blobs out in our foggy pasture turn in to cows as they come closer to the fence.



There you have it!  Easy-peasy, and I'm pretty sure it comes out cheaper than a venti or grande at you-know-where!  Take this recipe below and turn it into your favorite flavored iced coffee drink!


Homemade Iced Mocha Lattes 24 oz. glass/tumbler

Ingredients
  • 3 spoonfuls Instant coffee
  • 2 spoonfuls Sugar-free chocolate creamer
  • 2 spoonfuls Sugar-free Hazelnut creamer
  • 1-1 1/2 Cups boiling water
  • 1/4 Cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 oz. Sugar-free flavored coffee syrup
  • 1 oz. (more or less) Kahlua liquor
  • ice cubes
Cooking Directions
  1. Mix dry ingredients into the glass/tumbler. Shake around or stir together so they are mixed.
  2. Add boiling water, and stir together until dry ingredients are dissolved. Add a few ice cubes.
  3. Add cream and flavored liquids, stir, and then fill glass/tumbler with ice. You might want to pour a bit of the hot water over the ice to start the melting process.  Enjoy! Substitute coffees, creamers, and liquids to suit your taste.

Poke Cake and Cover Crops....Who Knew?


If you have been past our house in the last week, or a lot of other farms out here in the good Ol' Corn Belt, you might see a field that looks something like this....


Just a few weeks ago, the field was looking like this, and we were getting compliments on well our winter wheat looked!


You might be wondering, "What the heck happened to your wheat crop??"  The wheat isn't actually a crop for us.  Well, it is, but we grew it as a cover crop to help maintain our topsoil through the winter.  The growth helped hold the top soil to the ground and not blow away in the gale force winds we have on the ridge during the winter months. The root system of the wheat plants burrow down, and these little burrows allow water or melting snow to travel in to the ground instead of pooling and rushing to the low spots in our fields.  The root systems also help keep the ground porous.   It's sort of like making a poke cake.......

What?  You aren't quite sure what a Poke Cake is?

TIME OUT!

You all are in for a real treat because my friend, Miss Brandie, over at The Country Cook knows all there is to know about Poke Cakes, especially Pudding Poke Carrot Cake.   The baked cake looks like this.


Our ground looks like this. The roots of the cover crop make openings in the ground so that the water can go into the ground.....   or pudding if you like......


If you could cut away a chunk of ground, it might look like the inside of this cake, very moist from all the pudding that was able to come through the holes.


And, that's a simple way to look at cover crops.  Delicious right? ;-)  Thanks to Miss Brandie for allowing me to use her recipe in a way I'm sure she never thought it would be used! Make sure you click HERE or on the other links to grab this yummy recipe and many more!

Checking Tiles and Waterways: It's What We Do Every Year

This post is from a couple years ago, but we are out there again this year checking tile lines and making sure waterways are doing their share of pulling water off of our fields.

During Planting Season, quality couple time is pretty darn scarce, but the other evening Tall Guy asked me to out with him for a ride.  Aw.........

It was in the gator, and we were head out to the corn field to look for tile holes, but hey we were out there all by ourselves, the sun was setting, so we will count this one as a date!


As a little background, farmers are putting more tile in their fields to drain off excess water from rains.  The crops need water, but too much can flood crops out or stunt growth.  A wet field also means no tractors can go out to work ground or spray.
This picture shows a hole where tiles were not connected correctly.  When this happens dirt gets sucked into the tile and create weak points in the field or holes!


Here, you can see old clay tile and new plastic tile.... We saw the disconnect where water was flowing, but I apparently neglected to take the picture!



This next one is my favorite: Tall Guy "out standing" in his field.


 This shows where the ground is settling around the tile, and this could be a potentially dangerous spot to keep an eye on.  You wouldn't want a tractor or combine to fall into this depression.  It HAS happened in the past!


Flagging another hole.


One tile line emptying into the ditch.


Looking east, you can see where the tile line is and the subtle high and low points in the field.


Dadgum Coyotes!  Grrrrr!!  We do NOT like them!


Dang, it's a little swampy here!  Potential plugged tile.  We will have to watch this as well.


Where all the water from the field drains to is called a drop box.


A little blurry, but you can see how the waterways all flow to this point.



As our date comes to an end, so does the day.

Cow Porn

You hear of all the many ways we country folk entertain ourselves out here far away from a concert hall, sports arena, and other such venues.  We have bonfires, weenie roasts, a great game of corn hole, and just sitting back and watching the sun set.  It's a lovely life....except for spring....when we have to keep an eye on our visiting stud muffin to see if he is making his rounds properly.  Just yesterday I receive one of the most interesting jobs......

Tall Guy:  "Now you need to keep an eye on Bubba, and let me know which heifers he has covered."

Me:  "And by 'covered,' you mean......."

TG:  "Yep!  Get out the binoculars so you can tell me the heifers' numbers."

Me:  "Seriously!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?"

Ok, First, I do have a few other things to do around here besides sit in the sunroom (that is rather cold at the moment) and watch a movie without end.  Second, Bubba just doesn't spend all his time helping build our herd,  and third, that's just kind of weird to live your life around cow mating games.....

Me:  "Hey!  I see something!"

TG:  "Who is he riding?"

Me:  " Uhm......Well....SHE is riding HIM."

Apparently, there is just one position for cattle, and that one wasn't it.  Sigh......



Back to watching "the show."  It did remind me, however, of one of my favorite passages from the book Outlander.  It comes from the dreamy hunk Jamie Fraser after his first time with his new wife, Claire.


"So after they have sex, we see the first signpost that this episode's going to be a much more lighthearted affair than last week's: Jamie's confession that he thought that people had sex from behind like horses. Even though she promised not to, I in no way blame Claire for laughing. I did and I felt bad about it."

Loved that moment in the book, and loved the STARZ episode for keeping the exact lines in the dialogue between Claire and Jamie.  I highly recommend this series for reading and then watching the film version on STARZ.  Book 1, Outlander and Book 2, Dragonfly in Amber, are already filmed and available.  Book 3, Voyager, is being filmed right now with an air date for this new series installment due to air in September.  Meanwhile........

Back at the pasture, we wait and see.  It IS important to know that the bull is visiting all the ladies out there because, as we know, that's how we get calves, at least the old-fashioned way of doing it. Just peeked out my window and didn't see anyone out and about.  Hey, what they do in the barn I guess will stay in the barn.  With Easter Dinner here on Sunday, I do have a "few" things on my TO DO List, so sorry TG,  I'm not going to plop myself down in the sunroom to watch cow porn.

I do have a few scruples left!

5 Tips for a Gardener from a Farmer

This post was sponsored by The Glass Barn,
which is funded by the Indiana Soybean Checkoff.

April is a time for planting on our farm, but it’s also a time when greenhouse parking lots begin to fill up fast with gardeners who want to start their planting too. Are you making your list of seeds and plants for your garden?  Did you spend the winter months planning out a new flower bed? Even though you might not have a 24-row planter like ours,  you might be surprised just how much your gardens are like our fields.  Let’s talk about 5 Tips for a Gardener from a Farmer.

April is a time for planting on our farm, but it’s also a time when greenhouse parking lots begin to fill up fast with gardeners who want to start their planting too. Are you making your list of seeds and plants for your garden?  Did you spend the winter months planning out a new flower bed? Even though you might not have a 24-row planter like we use,  you might be surprised just how much your gardens are like our fields.  Let’s talk about 5 Tips for a Gardener from a Farmer.

1.     Crop rotation: Changing the placement of your garden plants each year is a very good idea.  Each vegetable needs different amounts of nutrients and protection from any disease left from last year’s plants.  Another plus to rotating your garden vegetables is that root vegetables like potatoes, carrots, and radishes, grow deep into the soil and break up the soil so that water can come down into the ground instead of running off.  When we plant our crops, we usually plant corn on top of last year’s bean ground and beans on top of last year’s corn ground for these same reasons.

You can see the dead corn stalks on the ground where we are planting beans.

The middle blade cuts a trough in the ground were a seed is dropped, 
and the two outer blades cover up the seed.  Easy Peasy!

Even though you might not have a 24-row planter like ours,  you might be surprised just how much your gardens are like our fields.  Let’s talk about 5 Tips for a Gardener from a Farmer.


2.    Soil testing:  It is important to check your soil to see if it is lacking in nutrients.  Many garden stores sell soil testing kits so that gardeners know the contents of their soil. 




     Tomatoes usually need extra lime added to the ground around them.  Hydrangeas will change the color of their blooms based on pH.  A pH of 5.2 – 5.5 will create blue flowers.  Farmers also have farm ground tested for the same reasons. We check the pH (lime) of the soil.  We want that number to be neutral so that there is not too much acidity in the soil, and we check amounts of phosphorous and potassium to know the amount of fertilizer we may need to add or NOT add for the upcoming crop.

3.    Fertilization: All plants need fertilizer to grow; it’s their food. However, different crops need different amounts of fertilizer. Once you have tested your soil, it’s important to take these numbers to your local garden store and ask them how to fertilize the ground for the best vegetable or flower growth.  Farmers have companies that test our soils then recommend the type and amount of fertilizer we need to best grow our crops. Sometimes we livestock owners use the fertilization made right in the cow lot to spread over our bean or wheat ground.  It's a bit fragrant, but it's free!  Just try not to fall in it!

Even though you might not have a 24-row planter like ours,  you might be surprised just how much your gardens are like our fields.  Let’s talk about 5 Tips for a Gardener from a Farmer.


4.    Early plants vs. later plants:  It’s most important to know WHEN you can plant seeds and starter plants.  There are many hardy garden plants and seed that you can plant very early in the growing season once you are clear of freezing temperatures.  Radishes, peas, lettuce, carrot seeds do well early as do cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, and onion plants.  In a flower garden, bulb plants like crocus, daffodils, hyacinths, and some tulips are the first bloomers. Pansies are hearty flowers, but you wait on impatiens, geraniums, and other annuals until the threat of frost has passed.  On the farm, our seeds come in much bigger packages…think boxes!

   Each box is marked with the seed variety it contains and its maturity dates (like 109 days to maturity).  There are some varieties of corn and soybean seed that can grow in colder soils.  Soybeans are the most susceptible to cold temperatures and frost because their growing points come up first.  Farmers usually try to plant corn first because it can tolerate colder temperatures better that soybeans.  Its growing point stays underground longer.



5.    Planting pairs:  When you are planting a garden or a flower bed, there are plants that are better paired together. In the garden, we would plant marigolds beside plants most susceptible to bugs because bugs don’t like marigolds. In a flower bed, you would want to plant early bloomers with later bloomers so that you don’t have any lapse in color.  Out in our cornfields, we plant two types of corn: one that has a bug tolerance along a variety that is not.  This is so that we do have protection against bugs, but we are not creating a super bug that is immune to insecticides.  We can plant these two corn varieties a variety of ways:  sprinkled in together, in strips, blocks within the field…. You get the idea. 

BONUS TIP!  Vegetable gardeners might want to consider growing a cover crop on top of the garden toward the end of the growing season between the rows of your vegetables.   More and more farmers are adopting this soil conservation practice because it protects its top soil and lets Mother Nature rebuild microorganisms in the ground.  Microorganisms bring life back to soils naturally.  Some good cover crop choices for gardeners and farmers would be long rooted radishes and oats. Cereal rye, regular rye, wheat, and other options, are also used by farmers, and that is why you see some green fields growing from October to April.  Many farmers have the seeds "sprayed" on their fields via airplanes.

This is a post from last year, but I wanted to add it to this new blog, and with all the snow falling outside, it seems to be the perfect time to share it again with you all.

Oh. My Stars!  If you all think that the end of harvest signals official downtime for farmers, then you need to get to know a farmer better.  We have been going non-stop it seems since the last kernel of corn and soybean went into the bins.  Fall ground work, cleaning up equipment, putting said equipment away in "ready-to-go" condition, working on books and numbers to see just how much grain we have to market, adding a few more calves to our herd of feeders cows, checking on the pregnant mommas out in the pasture, getting two calves and two kids ready for Hoosier Beef Congress in three weeks (gasping for air!), and then there are the girls, basketball practice fall musical, AND I am leaving tomorrow for three days in Indy for the Indiana Farm Bureau State Convention! Whew~!  Oh!  Did I mention Bear has a birthday on Monday that I am going to miss? Tink's falls on the 30th, and we just celebrated my great-nephew's Big FOUR-year-old birthday earlier today!  Fun times at the Wallpe Farm!

That part about me leaving for three days had me busy in the kitchen this morning making everyone pancakes and bacon, enough to last them a few more breakfasts while I'm gone.  Cereal is ok for breakfast, but as the mornings get colder, I like for everyone to have a hot breakfast option.

A bit further in the post, I am going to share with you my mom's delicious homemade pancake recipe. I love them, and my best friend from school can only make these for her crew, or they protest.  They are that good.  BUT........ Sometimes a mom just has to grab the mix off the shelf and get down to business.  We used to be Bisquick mix pancake eaters until I felt the pull of an old familiar face from the mix shelves.  Aunt Jemima called my name, and she is back on my shelf to stay for pancakes.

To make pancakes with this lovely lady taste like you whipped it all up from scratch, all you have to do is add my two secret ingredients......

Ta Da!!!!

It is that easy!  Just follow the directions on the box, and once you have mixed the egg, oil, and mix together, add a bit of Watkin's Double Strength Vanilla and Pure Almond Extract.  I know some of you out there are waiting with baited breath for me to tell exactly how much to add of each, but honestly, I just pour in a small bit, taste, and add more if needed.

Results?  My girls say it's like eating toasty angel food cake!

Here are the other ingredients I use, minus the eggs and oil.

I use Fairlife whole milk because it makes Tink's tummy feel better, and the Nestle mini chocolate chips also go in her pancakes because......well because she loves them, and that's what mommas do for their favorite oldest daughters.

What to know another secret?  When I add the mini chips to her pancakes, I spread a bit more batter over them so when I flip them, the chips don't burn from the hot skillet.

No-Bake Peanut Butter Rice Krispy Treats ~ The perfect snack for everything!




This post contains referral links to products I love.

We are just ending up our 8th grade basketball season, and let me tell you these girls have been practicing and playing together since the first part of November.


The last few games have been a bit rough on our girls with all the flu and cold ickies running around, so I thought I would change up my routine and makes some goodies for them before our last two games.  I wanted something sweet and at least somewhat healthy to boost their energy, and I found a recipe I have always wanted to make: Peanut Butter Rice Krispy Treats.  (A big shout out to Miss L for these team pictures!)

Have you ever had these delights?  The Rice Krispies Cereal has all of its vitamins and good minerals in it, the peanut butter brings in the protein they need, and the sugar you add to it all gives them a good boost of energy before their game.  They also make great after school or after practice snacks. Heck, these treats are good for just about any time you want them!  I'm totally making these to take to the field this spring.  It will be a great energy boost for the guys! You can't miss with these delicious treats (unless you have peanut allergies of course!  Then try almond butter if that is better for you.)


The treats are so easy to make, but quite difficult to photograph as you are making them. I found the recipe on Pinterest, and it originates from none other than Martha Stewart!  After reading her recipe and also reading the comments from those who had made them, my takeaway was that the original recipe has too much sugar for most people's tastes.  Here is my version of her recipe.



Printable Recipe


Peanut Butter Rice Krispies Treats

Ingredients
Cooking Directions
  1. Choose a shallow 9 X 13 pan or cookie sheet pan/stone *needs to have at least 1-inch sides on it, and line this pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl add your 4-5 cups of cereal. If you want gooey bars use 4 cups, but if you want a crunchy treat, add more cereal.
  3. In a medium saucepan, add the corn syrup and sugars, stir to mix, and let come to a boil over medium heat.
  4. Remove pan from the heat, and stir in the peanut butter, then the vanilla.
  5. Pour out onto the lined pan, and spread it out evenly from corner to corner.
  6. Let the pan sit until the treats have firmed up, then cut into pieces.
  7. Wrap treats in Saran wrap, and store in an air-tight container.
  8. Makes 24 bars
After I cut them, I wrapped each treat in Saran Wrap so the girls would have a chance at not getting their hands too sticky while they ate them.  Looks like this recipe is a keeper!






Until next time, Peeps! Have a great day,
and make a positive difference
in someone's life!
