SET AN EXAMPLE

Nearly 1 out of every 4 Americans 16 years and older volunteer their time in some way to charitable causes. Utah has the highest percentage of volunteers (43 percent); Louisiana ranks last (18.43 percent). Indiana (26.9 percent) falls somewhere in the middle. Aside from the obvious benefit of volunteering – helping others – there are plenty of gains for volunteers themselves, including an increase in happiness, better health and developing new skills. It doesn’t hurt that those who volunteer their time also report feeling like they have more of it in much the same that people who donate money to charity report feeling wealthier. The Extol Magazine Team is eager to highlight individuals and organizations who are setting an example through their dedication to helping others – like Floyds Knobs residents Jeannie and Victor “Vic” Unruh (pictured). If you know a group or person who deserves to be acknowledged for how they give back, send an email to extol@extolmag.com and include “Example” in the subject line. To learn more about Jeannie and Vic’s latest philanthropic endeavor, turn to page 105.

UP FOR DEBATE

screen-shot-2018-10-04-at-9-57-09-amPhoto by Jason Applegate

Kentucky is known for its hot brown. And fried chicken. And bourbon. In Maine, it’s all about lobsters, Maryland’s crabs and crab cakes reign supreme, Massachusetts claims the best clam chowder and you can’t beat a New York bagel or find a more flavorful green chile than you can in New Mexico. Each state clings to its claim of being known for serving up the best edible something – but what about Indiana? Spoon University and Thrillist say it’s our sugar cream pie, while Food Network and BuzzFeed maintain our breaded pork tenderloin sandwiches are the must-have dish. Help us settle the debate and tell us what is Indiana’s defining dish by sending an email to extol@extolmag.com. Just be sure to put “Extol Eats” in the subject line.

Wedded Bliss

On the fence about hiring a wedding planner? Here’s what you need to know.

PHOTO BY CHRISTIAN WATSON

Thanks to Google, Pinterest and all things DIY, it’s easy to convince yourself that you’re up for the task of taking on nearly any craft, project or event. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t consider calling in the experts. While some couples prefer to map out their wedding day solo – or, at least with each other – there are several reasons why you should consider hiring a pro to plan your perfect day. We asked wedding planner Shannon Fehr of Bliss Events to explain why you should give experienced professionals like her a try.


shannonfehr-3WHAT ARE THREE ADVANTAGES OF HIRING A WEDDING PLANNER?

It can save you money. I work with a lot of the same vendors for all my weddings, so they give me discounts because I bring them so much business and I pass those discounts on to my couples. I also know where to cut costs. For instance, it’s a lot cheaper to get a two-tier cake and one sheet cake for 100 people as opposed to a four-tier cake. That is just one of the many examples of how a wedding planner can recommend ways to save money but still get brides and grooms what they want.

When things go awry – and they will – a good wedding planner will jump in and take care of it. I had a wedding where the cake completely fell 40 minutes before the wedding was to start, so I ran to Wal-Mart – which was the only place available in Scottsburg at 5:30 p.m. on a Saturday – and got every cupcake they had and two small round cakes. I stacked the cakes and decorated with what little did not hit the floor of the other cake and all was well. Later in the evening, I heard the guests talking about how delicious the cupcakes were. They had no clue they came from Wal-Mart.

A wedding planner can save brides and grooms a ton of time and stress. I know where to find things, so couples do not have to do hours of research. I know exactly who to call for a vintage ice cream truck or animals for a petting zoo or safari theme wedding. I know who has the best prices on things. I know where to get $7 tablecloths as opposed to the exact same tablecloth that retails for $16 at most places.

A couple will often spend hours playing phone tag with vendors. Sometimes it takes four to five phone calls just to set up one tasting or to find out the venue does not have their date. A lot of people work during the day when the vendors are working, too, so it is hard to plan because when you get off work at 5 p.m., guess what? So do the vendors. Wedding planning is all I do so I am available during the day to make and receive calls.

WHAT DO YOU TELL BRIDES AND GROOMS WHO WORRY ABOUT THE ADDED EXPENSE OF HIRING A WEDDING PLANNER?

Wedding planners can save them more money in the long run and make up for the expense and then some. It is like a car or house insurance: A planner is good to have in case of emergencies on the day of the wedding when anything could happen. This is a safeguard for all the hard-earned money they spend on the wedding. For busy people, I tell them, “Time is money.” Brides and grooms will spend so much time planning the wedding if they do it on their own. Would you rather be working and making money or planning a wedding and not making money?

IF A COUPLE WANTS TO HIRE A WEDDING PLANNER, WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO FIND THE PERSON RIGHT FOR THEM?

Meet with the wedding planner in person and see if you like their energy and personality. You are going to be spending a lot of time with them, so you need to make sure you like them and are on the same page.

WHAT ADVICE DO YOU GIVE COUPLES ON THE BIG DAY BEFORE THEIR WEDDING STARTS?

I know it breaks tradition to see each other on the wedding day until the wedding starts or the reveal (first look), but I say forget that tradition. This day is so busy and does not stop until it is over. Couples get swept away all day by friends and family, so they hardly get to be together just the two of them. I tell them to meet early for breakfast or fishing (or something you love) and reflect on the months leading up to this day. And, exchange a gift or a note. You will cherish either for many, many years.

I also tell them to not stress if everything does not go as planned. Focus on what really matters and that is the moment you share your vows and promise to always love one another through sickness and health, good times and bad. No one will remember in 30 years that your cake fell or your deejay was 45 minutes late – and if they do, it will be a heck of a story!

“All Aboard” The La Pasadita Train

toddextoleatsCharlestown gem serves up authentic Mexican eats

By D. Todd Applegate

Photos by Christian Watson

As a self-professed foodie and wannabe chef ’n‘ restaurateur – and one of the Extol Team’s newest members – I am thrilled the role of food writer has been put on my plate. I am ready to dig in. At the risk of losing an audience I don’t yet have, I apologize in advance for the food puns, but hopefully you can develop a stomach for them. I look forward to extolling the virtues of the fare I find in our Southern Indiana community and will relish sharing it with you. So, please enjoy and just try and digest what I’m serving up in these pages. And if you have a place you think I should try, just send an email to extol@extolmag.com and put “Extol Eats” in the subject line. –D. Todd Applegate

I wish I had a peso for every time I’ve thought to myself, “I sure would like to find a restaurant that serves good authentic Mexican food.” If you’ve found yourself thinking the same thing, give La Pasadita a try.  Just off Highway 62 in Charlestown, the eatery is easy to get to, hard to get in (more on that in a moment) and easy to enjoy…at least once you find the entrance.

Housed in a red railroad car nestled between the “powder keg” tower and the suspended vintage Chevy on the flagpole, La Pasadita is kind of hard to miss. But getting inside the restaurant itself poses a bit of a challenge. There are three possible entrances, each with its own parking area. The key is to locate and stay to the right of the nondescript La Pasadita sign and park near there. With that accomplished and the red railroad car now in front of you, take one of the two entrances, choosing either ramp or steps, to one of two doors, each leading into the restaurant.

toddextoleats-2After what sounds like a bit of a treasure hunt to this point, you will now have even more of an appetite and as your reward, be ready to enjoy some good authentic Mexican food and in an old railroad dining car to boot. Just be sure you ask to be seated in the dining car, as the restaurant is part train car and part Mexican market and café.

With a name like La Pasadita, you might expect good Mexican food. After Isabel, my kind hostess-waitress-server-cashier, seated me, she asked, “Have you ever had authentic Mexican food before?”

Slightly taken aback I inquired: “What do you consider to be authentic Mexican food?”

Isabel replied, “The main difference between Tex-Mex, which is what most people consider Mexican food to be, is that ‘authentic’ means using traditional family recipes from the various regions of Mexico in your particular restaurant.”

As for the restaurant’s name, “There isn’t an easy translation,” Isabel admitted. The closest translation I could find for pasadita comes from the word pasar, which means “to pass” or “passage.”

While that was close, Isabel added that the word “probably translates to ‘passing by’ or ‘passing on’ when used colloquially.” That was good enough for me as I thought if I was hungry and “passing by” a place, I’d like to try some traditional Mexican recipes that had been “passed on.”

toddextoleats-11With the treasure hunt and Spanish lesson behind me, I was now seated in the stainless-steel tube of an old dining car, which was behind the big red engine of the now defunct Clark Nichols Railroad, and ready to order lunch.

The menu items were primarily in Spanish but with informative descriptions in English of what you were ordering.  In addition to many recognizable offerings, the menu also included chicharrones (pork rings), flautas (deep fried chicken tacos), huaraches (shaped masa cakes), and the atypical Tacos De Tripitas, Chorizo, and Lingua (tripe, chorizo and tongue tacos). There were plenty of huevos (egg) offerings and tortas (Mexican sandwiches) as well.

Incidentally, there is one menu for both lunch and dinner, and specials for each. On the day of my visit, the lunch special ($5) included two tacos (either Mexican style or deluxe with choice of meat ) with rice and beans.

That was my starter, along with a lime Jarritos ($1.50) to drink. There are a variety of Mexican beverages both on the menu and in the cooler to purchase in the market. You can even get a Mexican Coca Cola should you choose. There are three Mexican beers ($3/each) and three domestics in bottles ($3) on the menu. And bottled water, too ($1.)

Soon, out came the salsa and chips and the Jarritos, followed by my tacos. A Mexican Taco here is a small, flat, corn tortilla with choice of meat, chopped onions and fresh cilantro. A Deluxe Taco includes the above plus lettuce, tomato, cheese and sour cream. I had ordered a deluxe with chicken and a Mexican with beef. Both were extremely tasty. The meat was tender, marinated and spiced – but not spicy. I drizzled salsa on both, which was interesting as the sauce was thinner versus chunky, but full of flavor, with onion, cilantro and a notable citrus kick. The chips were crunchy with the right amount of salt. You can get a hotter version of the salsa upon request. It is thicker and amped up with habanero, but not too amped up.

I asked Isabel what was La Pasadita’s signature dish.  She seemed to lean toward the beef choices and cited Carne Asada (grilled skirt steak; $8.99) as her choice. I have had Carne Asada elsewhere, so I opted for something different and selected the Guisado De Puerco (pork stew in green sauce) while Extol photographer Christian Watson – who’d just arrived – ordered the Quesadilla Con Carne (translation: beef quesadilla; $8.99) and a mango Jarritos. Both of our meals came with refried pinto beans and rice, tortillas and a small salad comprised of lettuce, tomato and avocado.

The tortillas, which have great flavor and are specially made for the restaurant, are soft corn tortillas served hot off the grill. You’ll notice big corn flavor in this simple little gem. However, be prepared for the texture change of this corn tortilla versus the flour tortilla that most of us are used to, thanks to the Tex-Mex options in this area.

My Guisado De Puerco was served with chunks of tender marinated pork in a delicious green sauce that was more like gravy. An ample portion for sure, as are most things here, but I still wanted more. Like the tortillas, the refried pintos and the rice were really flavorful sides. And did I detect a hint of adobo or secret spice in the recipe?

It was consistently busy at lunch on this day, and Isabel was in constant motion and multitasking. But she seemed to manage and no one seemed bothered. I just would not have wanted or needed to be in a hurry that day.

I didn’t see desserts on the menu but did notice a small case with fresh pastries (Tortas y Dulces) in the market. Just before paying my bill, I ordered a side of guacamole ($1.50) to go. At restaurants, I sometimes look at a single item that can represent the overall quality of the food across similar restaurants, almost like a standard. Guacamole or a cheese enchilada with red sauce are normally my Mexican go-to barometers. Later that night, I tried the guacamole and as expected, it did not disappoint. Simple but good, it was fresh and creamy with chunks of avocado throughout and a noticeable citrus kick, like the salsa. My wife sampled it as well and voiced her approval.

Even though a unique part of La Pasadita and the floor plan, the Mexican market is small and somewhat out of place. But as I walked around and explored, I realized there was everything one would expect in keeping with the overall authenticity of La Pasadita.  The market offered all things Goya and La Preferida brands. There were spices, canned goods, sauces, snacks, cookies and candy to choose from as well as drinks and an assortment of Mexican cheeses and chorizo in the cooler.

toddextoleats-7I plan to make a return trip soon and advise you to climb aboard the train at La Pasadita, too.

Until next time.

Tastefully, Todd

The Art of Joy

Extol’s Explorer JD Dotson found a treasure trove of unique items and art in Floyds Knobs and Georgetown

By JD Dotson

There is only one thing better than exploring places I’ve never been and that is discovering treasures in my own backyard. Recently, I found two very different but equally enthralling decor and gift shops – one in Floyds Knobs and the other in Georgetown – that make me want to do a bit of redecorating at home.


The Nest

The Nest in Floyds Knobs is a carefully-curated consignment store with a range of furniture and decor from antique to modern. Each section of the store is set up as a well-appointed vignette, giving subtle suggestions of what lamp to pair with a loveseat, and what accessories could complement the look of the room. Every inch of the place is well designed by owner Martha Pfau. Walls are covered in art and stained glass, and the cabinets and shelves are full of colorful, unique items. It is a bargain hunter’s dream; well-priced, one-of-a-kind items fill the space. Of course, inventory is always changing and the unique pieces come and go, but I picked out a few of my favorites.

screen-shot-2018-10-04-at-12-01-10-pm

The little Japanese shelf sitters, rice paper frame and decorative fleur-de-lis plate complement each other so well. There is a story there somewhere of travels to far-off lands and thoughts of bringing a bit of the world home.

Figures, $14

Frame, $16

Plate, $24

The stained-glass pieces at The Nest are so beautifully crafted in traditional designs and bright colors, and range in sizes and shapes. This particular piece is a large rectangular 44-inch by 24-inch. I was drawn to the repeating fleur-de-lis pattern and the varying shades of blue against the smoky tan was really striking.

Stained Glass, $320

The square and rectangular dishes caught my eye, the bright colors and pattern would liven up any table and I could leave my usual black dishes in the cabinet. Something about this table service for four makes me want to have a big Italian dinner party, not because the pattern is particularly Italian, but I do make a mean Bolognese. As a side note, my husband Jon really dug the modern, yellow bread box, which had me asking if people really keep bread in a box? But he loved it, and I included it for him.

Ceramic Table Service for Four, $98

Bread Box, $12

The Nest carries a line of printed canvas tote bags and tablet cases with grommets and patches and inspirational sayings that make me want to be a more responsible iPad owner and quit just shoving it naked into my backpack.

Tablet Case, $35

Just up the road in Georgetown, very close to where I grew up, is a place that truly lives up to its name. A Room Full of Joy is exactly what its name implies. As soon as you walk in, you are enveloped in lights and sights and smells and the overwhelming urge to explore every inch of this place. The boutique currently has 13 local vendors – each with a section of the space – but it is so much more than a shop. Owner Joy Burden Simon has designed a site that also houses a space for community events and classes. The day we visited, an essential oils class was taking place in a space that has hosted neighborhood bunco games, jewelry-making classes and keto diet information seminars. There were so many handcrafted things that I loved about A Room Full of Joy, including candles, candy, soaps and jewelry, but here are a few of my absolute favorites.

Just inside the door is a handmade sign for Ruff Stuff. In this case, the name implies something completely different. C.J. Owen’s found objects may have started out “ruff” but are put together so expertly as lamps, sconces, chandeliers and furniture that they are the exact opposite of rough. I am always enamored by anyone who can take an old item and transform its purpose. Ruff Stuff completely blew me away with nearly everything in the booth. The chandelier from a yoke and old Ball jars is beautiful, especially paired with the mule collar lamp and hanging over the upcycled crate island with the utensil handles. It is an amazing skill to turn antiquated objects into modern functional pieces.

Mule Collar Lamp, $150

Yoke Chandelier, $250

Kitchen Island, $150

Vicky’s Country Creations has one of my favorite activities – but on a huge scale. Yahtzee has been turned into Yardzee. Huge dice in a giant bucket has taken my favorite table game to the backyard. The bucket comes with score cards and instructions on Farkle (Yarkle) and Cootie as well.

Yardzee/Yarkle, $30

screen-shot-2018-10-04-at-12-01-56-pm

Another example of an artist reimagining an object’s purpose is Janice Glotzbach. Janice uses utensils, fishing lures and other everyday objects and transforms their function into beautiful, wearable art with the help of wire and beads. My favorite piece stood out instantly but really surprised me when I realized I was looking at a manipulated and bedazzled fork. The former eating utensil had been cut, curled and beaded, taken off the table and ready to be worn around the neck.

Fork Necklace, $18

Work It: How to elevate your office attire

miranda-photo-for-biz-storyBy Miranda McDonald

Photo by Gretchen Bell

Style mavens in the know are throwing out the stuffy rules of dressing for work and embracing a whole new attitude when it comes to being fashionable yet still business appropriate. Here are a few simple tips for taking your office look from drab to modern and chic.

 

Chic Socks

Socks can be such a chic accessory during the fall months. Men – and suit-wearing women – can add some serious panache to a suit with a pair of statement socks. Roll up your denim and let a pair of bold socks stick out the top of your boots if you are going for a more business casual look.

 

Gals can get in on the footwear action by layering dress socks with a favorite set of heels. Don this combo with a pair of cropped trousers or a dress, and you will be quite surprised at how fashionable you feel.

 

A Statement Piece for Your Suit

When wearing a classic suit for work, adding a statement piece to your ensemble is important. Play – and slay – with colorful patterns and prints on ties, bowties and pocket squares. Hats are also a great accessory to add to the mix.

 

If you’re into baubles, add a large piece of jewelry or even a jeweled bag to your look. I’m currently enamored with bringing headpieces back into our fashion repertoire (ladies: take note). Elevate a simple suit to the next level by adding a textured headband or embellished barrette.  The addition creates the perfect combination of modern and classic styling.

 

The Perfect Bag is Key

Investing in a bag that is stylish yet functional is imperative. Luckily, there are many stylish options that ensure anyone can find the perfect carryall for business documents and daily must-have items. I suggest purchasing a piece that is neutral in color so that it matches most of your wardrobe. However, neutral doesn’t have to mean boring. Texture and accents are everything. Textured leather and bold accents on bags make a statement while keeping a piece completely functional at the same time.

 

Transition Your Look

Taking your look from work appropriate to evening chic can be simple. Have a dress you want to wear to the office but are also headed out on the town immediately after work? Simply layer a light sweater or blouse under your favorite frock for the office. Then, remove that extra layer and add a piece of statement jewelry before meeting friends for cocktails when the work day is over. Wearing a suit but want to go casual for an after-work fete or dinner with friends? Bring a pair of jeans and swap out the suit pants for a cool but casual look.

Dress for Your Success

Creative Direction & Styling by Miranda McDonald

Surely, clothes don’t make the man or woman – or do they? A number of recent studies have found donning more formal work attire can lead to increased productivity, heightened attention of how you treat others and more favorable first impressions. The findings only pertain to certain industries – and there’s no denying the benefits of comfort and functionality in apparel – but one thing is clear: You can dress for success and have a bit of fun, too.
