Rampage 5K Walk/Run

September 26th at 8:00 am Pleasant Grove Macey's

Farmer's Insurance and Macey's have teamed up with a few other local Companies to sponsor a first annual Mount Mahogany Rampage 5 K run/walk as part of Health and Safety week. This will be a great event for the entire family.

Macey's will have their famous pancake breakfast as part of the fundraiser following the race.

Farmer's insurance will have their M.I.L.K (Managing Information on Lost Kids) kits for your children. These kits are free to families. The M.I.L.K kits will register your child with the Amber Alert so that if the worst should happen, all you would have to do it push a button on your computer and it will automatically send all the necessary information [current photo, age, description, etc] to the local news and police stations, and the Amber Alert to help you recover your child as quickly as possible. Farmers will give you the CD kit so you can update it each year.

The Pleasant Grove Fire Department will bring their brand new Fire truck with the 100 ft. ladder. There will also be safety booths at the finish line.

If you would like to participate in the 5K, please register at the PG Macey's service desk
Registration fee: $15 Make your registration check out to Mount Mahogany PTA. If you register by Sept 21st, you will receive a Rampage T-shirt.

All funds will go to support the student at Mount Mahogany Elementary.

Spotlight: Mandi Lee Taylor

From time to time, we'll have a spotlight on someone in our community to tell us more about them and what they do. Here's our first!!!

My name is Mandi Lee Taylor. I have lived in the gateway village for about 5 years (I bought my condo before it was built!) and have loved it. I graduated from BYU in 2004 in early childhood education and taught first grade for five years. I also spent some time as a head teacher at the BYU child and family studies lab (aka Preschool).

During my first years of teaching I took a second job at a photo lab. I had always aspired to learn more about photography, and this was a great opportunity. I developed prints for a handful of professional photographers and became deeply interested in their work, I started to shadow them on shoots and assist them with lighting.

I had a son about a year ago and now stay home with him full time. This has given me a bit more time to develop my photography skills and expand my knowledge. I have taken several classes, and am still doing all I can to become better with each shoot. It has become a passion.
I think that we all have the ability to recognize beauty around us. The special thing about photography is that it freezes a moment of beauty and stores it away permanently. Photography gives me an opportunity to search for simple beauty and fresh perspectives, it has opened my mind to the detail of our world.
I offer sessions for all types of photography: newborns, children, families, couple, weddings.
Each session is 1-2 hours and is shot on location. I give my clients a high resolution CD with 50+ images (copyright released), so they can print and publish as they wish. Right now my pricing is INSANELY affordable.

For more information visit or email me at! I would love to take pictures of you. . . .or teach you more about photography!

Thanks Mandi!

Missing Dog

This poor dog has been lost since Monday.
He's been hanging out by my place since yesterday.
I called Animal Control, who came by to catch him.
The catcher recognized the dog as having been reported lost.
She contacted the owner, who lives in the Pleasant Springs apartments,
They will continue to attempt to capture the dog.
The dog is sick (runny nose and wheezing) and
is overdue to take his medicine.

If you should see him let me know so I can let the owner where to go.

Food Storage Low-Down

I attended the Enrichment presentation on food storage, given by Tammy Hulse, and Michelle asked me to take "copious notes" and we decided to post them on this blog. Well, after taking these so-called copious notes, I went home and checked out the instructor's website and of course her slide presentation is available there :) So I figured I would just give you the address to her website (the link to the slide presentation is on the left-hand side) so you could view the presentation in its entirety, and I am adding some things I personally found interesting about the whole presentation. Here goes . . .

* Tammy Hulse, the instructor, received her degree in Food, Science and Nutrition, which for me gives her some good credibility.

* Her website is

* The website has fantastic information in it (i.e. recipes, ideas, food preservation ideas) as well as links to valuable outside resources.

* I appreciated that she stressed to only build your food storage out of items your family will use, and to make them into your "convenience foods".

* She has an interesting way of using her food storage as "convenience food" and vise versa. She puts all the items needed to make a certain recipe in an old gift bag (for example, if the recipe calls for spices, she pre-measures them out and puts them in a Ziploc baggie and then places it in the gift bag, along with all other required items), with the recipe attached on the front. Then she just pulls out a bag when she needs to make dinner and everything she needs is inside. She has a 3-month-supply of these "meals-in-a-bag" and she replenishes each bag's food items after she uses them, thus maintaining her storage. I think these meals would significantly decrease the headaches we have when it is 5 o'clock and we are thinking "what should I make for dinner?"

* We tasted these foods at Enrichment and they were good. I am kind of picky with how my food tastes, and I liked these and would make them for my family.

* I think these meals-in-a-bag are a great idea for post-baby meals (so you can assemble them before the baby arrives). They also would be great for when younger kids are learning to make dinner. They take a lot of the complexity out of cooking.

* She showed us her bottled meats, which was pretty weird to me (looking-wise and thinking-wise) until I tasted them, and truly they taste a lot better than canned meats from the store. And the way she bottles beans is genius. Check it out on the blog.

* She stressed using a reference guide (links available on her blog) when canning, freezing, etc. This way your preserved food won't cause any unwanted illnesses :)

* She vacuum seals a lot of dry foods (chocolate chips, baking mixes, candy, nuts) in MASON JARS. I had never heard of that before, but it dramatically increases the shelf life of these items. Pretty cool.

This presentation was really interesting and eye-opening and I suggest checking out her blog if you want to learn and do more of these things. She has some great ideas!

Food Storage

Our class on Food Storage last night was awesome!!
It has totally changed my outlook on food storage.
I was amazed at how much I learned, and
For Christmas, I want a Pressure Canner and Vacuum food sealer.

For those of you who missed it, we missed you! It's not the same as being together but we have some information to share from our insightful evening. Rachel Child took copious notes and will be sharing them tomorrow.

Here we are absorbing all the info.
Hey! Can you tell from the back of their head who these ladies are in the back of the room?

After the presentation, we tried a few of the tasty dishes Tammy Hulse suggested for bag meals as well as some delicious desserts. Lindsay Lowder will share those recipes with us on Friday.

And of course we socialized.

Junior High school days have begun!! -Brigitte Thorne

I can not believe that summer is already over! Time flies by....
My little miss Kaylee Susannah Thorne is starting 7TH GRADE tomorrow, at the PG Junior High. Jr. High is a whole new world.....

The Junior high is a BIG step up from elementary school. Not only do you have many different classes and a locker but Utah has a different set up than what I did growing up. Junior high consists of 7th,8th, 9th graders.

* Tomorrow is 7th grade day: only the 7th graders attend school the whole day! Then only the 8th and 9th graders only, then Friday- all grades go together. I think this is a great idea- everyone there on this day is "new"- and will be learning together.

* They have A days and B days. Each day is 4 classes long- and they alternate days. For example, if they have math on their A days, and have homework, they do not return to that class for 2 days. Gives them some extra time to finish homework, and they get more classes finished by the time they are seniors in high school.

*They get out of school at 2:30PM- putting them home at 3:00PM. Sooo much better than 4:00PM when she got home off the bus from elementary school.

*They have classes throughout the WHOLE school. When I was in middle school, we had a 6th, 7th, and 8th grade halls- your locker and classes were mostly in those halls. That made it a lot easier to find your way. It may take her some time to find her way around and discover the quickest route to each of her classes.

* You MAY NOT take any back packs to class- those are only allowed to carry your books to and from school. If you bring it to a class, it will be taken away.
(What is the world coming to these days?? honestly...)

Their school mascot is the VIKINGS!! Blue and white-

Special Guest - Megan Martin

Ha! I just called myself a special guest! :)

So, I'm reporting on the farmer's markets we've been frequenting as of late:

1. Pleasant Grove Promenade (Thursdays 4-8):
The first time we went, I thought it was super lame, but we went last week and it was much better. Now that harvest time is upon us, there were more produce stands, which I think makes a farmer's market great. They also had a crepe booth and a tamale/carne asada taco booth...mmmm.

2. Thanksgiving Point Farmer's Market (Fridays 3-7):
There were only a couple of produce booths at this one, but it does have some fun things to look at. Personally, I like to go to farmer's markets to get cheap produce, so I can't necessarily recommend this one. Also, no tamales. Boo.

3. South Jordan Farmer's Market (Saturdays 8-1):
We haven't been this year, but we hear that if you want produce, this is DEFINITELY the one to choose. It is sponsored by Utah Farm Bureau, after all. Basically the whole thing is produce and not so much artsy/craftsy stuff.

4. Provo Farmer's Market (Saturdays 8-2):
My favorite carne asada tacos are found here. This one is fun because they have live music the whole time. And they seem to attract more farmers from a larger region, so you do get a better selection of fresh produce. Lots and lots of organic stuff is available at this one.

5. Downtown SLC Farmer's Market (Tuesdays 4-8, Saturdays 8-1):
If you can get over hanging out in a sketchy part of town, this one is the largest in Utah. And I really like this one because there is SO much to see. I got some AMAZING produce there last year that I still think really was that good.

Here's a link to all the farmer's markets in Utah if you want to check any others out while you're traversing the state:

Special Guest - Tia White

Tia attended the cooking group, Cooking with Greens. Here's what she had to say:

Awesome cooking class last Tuesday. I felt like I was a guest taster on a professional cooking show. =) Jake taught us how to make three different dishes (one soup, one main dish and one side dish) with leafy green vegetables- ones I otherwise wouldn't even think to use. Even though they were "vegetable" dishes they were all really distinct and very flavorful. His Chicken with Kale stuffing (Kale's a vegetable I'd never heard of before) was amazing! I probably never would have been brave enough to try such gourmet recipes on my own (coward that I am in the kitchen) but after watching him do it and listening to his tricks and advice I left feeling like I could totally do it. (Can't wait to try his meatballs with spinach). He also taught us how to wash and store your vegetables so they'll stay good longer in your fridge. Thanks Jake!

Thanks Tia for sharing your thoughts about the class. If any of you have something to share let me know. I love having special guests!!

I saw Once on this Island

Tonight, I went to the production of Once on this Island.
Here is Lisa's cast bio:
Lisa is talented and has a beautiful voice. Her performance tonight absolutely blew me away. She was amazing!! Such power and emotion. A powerhouse during the song "Pray"

I felt her character's emotions: joy for a child, love for her husband, concern for her hubbie's safety, frustration with her daughter, unconditional and everpresent love for her daughter, and her sorrow and pain. My emotions seldom are engaged, when watching a play/movie/musical, so this was a roller coaster ride for me. One that I would ride again.

My favorite number of the musical was when TiMoune encounters the goddess Asaka, who tells her not to fear, as the Earth will give her everything she needs on her journey to Daniel ("Mama Will Provide"). There were "frogs" that hopped around flicking their tongues. It was funny! The Goddess Asaka was played by Kate Daly -I think Jake and I saw her perform previously as Kate in the Taming of the Shrew at the Hale Center Theatre.

The last performances are Friday and Saturday.
It's worth it!

Cooking with Greens

If you missed the class, do not despair! The recipes Jake demonstrated will be posted on his recipe blog. If you are interested in receiving the Cooking with Hearty Greens cook booklet, which contains a selection of some our family's favorite greens recipes, leave your name and address.

Special Guest - Janie Stewart

Janie has recently been called as our Stake FamilySearch Indexing Director. Here are some things she has to share about indexing.
Why is indexing important?
photobyIndexing photobyInstall
Volunteers extract family history information from digital images of historical documents (birth, marriage, death, census' records) to create searchable indexes that assist everyone in finding their ancestors so they can do the Temple Work in their behalf.
In 30 minutes you can help people find their ancestors!
  • Use your own PC - Work in your PJ's from the comfort of your own home, whenever you wish.
  • It is necessary to have a high speed interent connection.
  • If you are interested you can volunteer at
  • Specify that you are in the "Pleasant Grove Utah West Stake"
  • Download the small program, create a username and password (write it down!)
  • Train yourself with the on-line tutorials
Watch out! Indexing is addicting in a good way!

How to be Pantry Savvy - Enrichment

Our next Relief Society Enrichment will be held Tuesday, August 18th at 6:30 in the Multipurpose room.

It will be an insightful evening on making the most of what's in your food storage.

When it comes to the topic of food storage, I often feel overwhelmed. My mindset is that there is all this food to buy, obscure things that I never eat, then I have to figure out how to prepare it for use then to cook it. Gack!

When I look at my pantry/kitchen cabinets, I know what to do with it all and I use it all the time. So I need to change my mindset: Food storage is just an extension of my pantry.
Tammy Hulse will show us how to build food storage around the meals we normally make so that we don't end up with shelves of stuff we'll never touch. She'll also share tips for preserving food and doing so safely, as well as ideas for making food storage meals more convenient like using freezer or bag meals.

So join us as we learn How to be Pantry Savvy.

Recycling II

Ok, I've been calling around to locate a place that recycles plastic. One place suggested I talk with the garbage man, who'll bring me a recycling trash can and then haul it off for me. Could it really be that easy? I don't think so.

But on to better news, we don't have to haul our aluminum cans all the way to Provo. Woo hoo!

MCR Recycling
550 No. Geneva Road, Orem

They buy all types of metals, steel, autos, appliances, aluminum, aluminum cans, copper, brass, radiators, stainless steel, and batteries.

I found their ad in the Daily Herald Utah County Fair insert. If you mention it they'll give you a $2 bonus per pound on Aluminum cans.

For more information about other types of recycling, check out the Recycling Coalition's website, and the list of places to drop off your recyclables.

P.S. Jake just informed me that they have aluminum can recycling at his office, so after I get a can crusher, I'm gonna send my cans off with him each week.

Today, I'm taking a load of papers to the big blue bin. Anyone have a load that needs to be taken?

Farmer's Market at Thanksgiving Point

Last year, on his way home from work, Jake would stop at the Farmer's Market at Thanksgiving Point to pick up tomatoes, bell peppers, chiles, candied roasted nuts, and the best part: tamales.

Yummy, fresh tamales!! We had tamales, every Friday, and loved it. They even have dessert tamales. Pineapple. It was interesting. Something you just have to try and decide for yourself if you like it or not. It is with joy that we await Tamale Nights to begin anew tomorrow evening.

Oh! and the produce is lovely, fresh, and delicious.

Farmer's Market
Every Friday 3pm - 7pm
August 7 to October 2

Once on This Island!

My friend, Lisa Frost, is in the Lehi City Arts Council's production of "Once On This Island!"

A little peek into the plot: All the cast members are storytellers; storytellers who join together during an Island storm to calm a small child, and together enact the tale of TiMoune, a young girl rescued from a flood by gods who seem to have planned a special destiny for her. TiMoune is adopted by caring parents and raised in a peasant village which is socially separate from the rich city behind gates on the other side of the island. TiMoune grows into adulthood wishing for more in her life than the peasant life she knows and entreats the gods of Water, Earth, Love and Death to help her begin her destiny. The God of Water devises a plan by which she meets a boy from the wealthy caste forbidden to her," and the story begins...(synopsis taken from

Lisa will be playing Mama Euralie, the mother of the lead character. This has been a huge dream come true for her. Woo hoo! I'm proud of her for making her dream a reality and (Dang it! I'm getting teary eyed) I'm so excited to watch her perform.

7:30 PM

August 10 - Monday

$8 Adults
$6 Seniors and Children & under 12.
