The Mia Foundation

The Mia Foundation takes in dozens of animals born with deformities with the goal of giving them a chance at a life. 

We all know that Wishbone spends the majority of his time napping.  We also know that it doesn't matter if it's dark outside or if it's in the middle of a bright sunny day.  It just doesn't matter.  Wishbone can sleep anytime!  For the rest of us, that's not alway the case.  Some of us need it to at least look like the middle of the night to be able to drift off.  Trying to get Wishbone to understand that was nearly impossible.  Still, we managed to convince him to do a quick column about window coverings.  If you're not like Wishbone and need a little help pretending it's dark out, we hope you will find this helpful.

Hard Window Treatments are made of hard materials like wood or vinyl. Examples: shades, blinds and shutters.
Soft Window Treatments are anything made of soft materials.  Examples: curtains and drapes.
A combination of both is called a Layered Window Treatment.

Shutters control the amount of sunlight that enters a room, they provide privacy, security,  and they protect against weather.

Cellular shades come in single cell, double cell, and triple cell. They also offer different levels of light control from light filtering to blackout.

Vertical blinds excellent solution for covering windows that are extremely wide and for patio doors.

Roller shades are easy and economical and add color, style and texture to any decor.

Sheer Curtains are sometimes referred to as privacy curtains.  In daylight they allow you to see from the inside out but prevent people outside from seeing directly into the room.

Cheesy Scalloped Potato Bundt

How impressive is this?  Make this as a side dish, or maybe add it along with your favorites for breakfast, or brunch!

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature

2 1/2 pounds Yukon gold potatoes (about 8 medium)

1 cup heavy cream

2/3 cup grated Parmesan 

1 clove garlic, grated

1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary

3 scallions, thinly sliced

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

12 slices mild Cheddar, cut in half 

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Generously butter a 12-cup bundt pan (use all the butter; it may seem like a lot, but the potatoes need it to stick to the sides of the pan and to crisp up).
Thinly slice the potatoes on a mandoline (they need to be thin enough to easily bend when folded). Starting on the bottom of the pan lay the potatoes in a slightly overlapping formation, sticking to the butter, until the entire pan is covered in one layer of potatoes.
Stir together the heavy cream, Parmesan, garlic, rosemary, scallions, 2 teaspoons salt and a few grinds of black pepper in a large bowl. Toss the remaining potatoes in the cream mixture until well coated. 
Using a quarter of the potatoes, layer them in a circular formation, slightly overlapping in the bottom of the pan. Top with 8 pieces of the Cheddar in a slightly overlapping circle. Repeat two more times. Top with the remaining quarter of the potatoes so that all of the cheese is covered. Bake until the potatoes are a dark golden brown, crispy on top and a paring knife can easily be inserted and removed into the center of the dome, about 1 hour 20 minutes. Let rest for 10 minutes. Run a small offset spatula around the edges of the pan to help loosen the potatoes from the side. Invert onto a serving platter. Serve immediately.
