I am a firm believer in “thriftiness” which means we supplement our favorite meat choice (BEEF!) with other proteins like beans and eggs quite a bit. Have you ever wondered how long those eggs are good for once you buy them, and what those numbers on the sides of the egg cartons really mean?

When the weather turns so pretty, and the wildflowers bloom, I can’t help myself. I just have to get out and work in my flower beds. But one striking landscaping approach—xeriscaping—doesn’t require much labor or much water, once established. Michael Murphy is going to tell us all about it tomorrow beginning at 6:30 P.M.

This bread is King Arthur’s self-proclaimed “Recipe of the Year for 2014.” Now, just exactly how or why they choose to select a recipe of the year in the middle of the year is not for me to understand or question. All I know is that it is an excellent bread with a simple recipe! Ingredients: 1 1/8th cups lukewarm water ¼ cup vegetable oil ¼ cup honey, molasses or maple syrup 3 ½ cups King Arthur (or other) whole wheat flour 2 ½ teaspoons yeast ¼ cup dry milk 1 ¼ teaspoons sa ...

If it were voted on, there’d be no “National Siblings Day.” Period, end of discussion. The unofficial “date” is sneaking onto calendars, however, perhaps with a gentle push by brain trusts at Hallmark Cards. Best I can tell, one woman decided her fellow Americans need to “make nice” to their brothers and sisters, with sentiments exchanged April 10 each year—in close proximity with April Fool’s Day….

I am truly fortunate to have been given the opportunity to do this column. I have been given the chance to talk to some of the most interesting people in our community. These people are our Seniors. Seniors quite frankly hold things pretty close to the vest. They normally don’t talk about themselves.

Dates are dates. 1492. 1836. June 14th. Cinco de Mayo. Combinations of months and numbers. But some dates mean more than others. Some dates are nationally known. Like October 31st. Boo! Or April 15th. Boo hoo. Or even more sobering. September 9, 2011. Nine-eleven. A date branded on the nation’s heart. So is November 22, 1963. April 4, 1968. June 6, 1968. Then there’s December 25th. Known ‘round the world. Holy.

Our annual national, or maybe international, Earth Day was celebrated recently, and as usual I had no idea that was coming up until it was half over. Not that I would have necessarily celebrated it, of course, but I might have liked to write about it ahead of time. Doing things on time goes against my nature, as a general rule, but I like to shake things up once in a while. Not that a particular day really matters, though.

Everyone I know loves Blue Bell ice cream, and you probably have a half gallon or two in your freezer right now. I just wanted you to have this information in case you missed it! Blue Bell is doing the right thing and recalling EVERYTHING until they can figure out the contamination source.

This is the beginning of the summer holiday season, “Cinoo-de-Mayo, Memorial Day and Labor Day”. This is my favorite holiday season because the meals usually involve grilling. I think Beef Fajitas is a perfect choice to start off the summer. This meal can all be done in one pan. Sizzling Beef Fajitas 1 ½ lbs (tenderized and sliced in strips) skirt steak or round steak s 2 Onions sliced 1 Red Bell Pepper sliced 1 Green Bell Pepper sliced 1 jalapeño 1 teaspoon garlic powder 1 teas ...

I’m a “WHEEL WATCHER!” Seems the “Wheel of Fortune” has been on the air for thirty one years. I’ve missed some, but more seen than more missed. It comes on at six thirty in the evenings and I don’t want to be disturbed for the thirty minutes it’s on. It better be something important for anyone to call the house between six thirty and seven.

ENERGY, more commonly lack of energy, is one of the most frequent complaints that I hear. Unfortunately, there is not one pill, or one answer that applies to everyone. Every cell in our body is ALIVE with electric energy that comes from the right balance of minerals, fluids, vitamins and other nutrients.

I want to thank everyone who bought books and baked good at the Friends of the Library Book and Bake Sale. It was a grand success again, and I’m amazed at your generosity! Of course, I give a giant thank you to the Friends who ran the sale, sorted books, baked, advertised, and generally wore themselves out for the library’s sake.
