Pimento Cheese, Not Your Grandma's Spread

Pimento cheese is one of those foods that has been so corrupted by the food industry that it has become synonymous with other crappy foods like Spam.  I'm not even certain what store bought pimento cheese might contain, nor do I want to find out.  It's a shame because pimento cheese can be a delightful treat, even if it does Read the full post…

Plum Good BBQ Sandwiches

In a few days it will officially be fall but the temperatures are still warm enough for me to continue swimming for a few more days.  The breeze was a little cool but that didn't stop me from swimming several laps this morning and I felt great afterwards!  Have you exercised lately?  With fall's cooler temperatures and fewer insects, you Read the full post…

Shingles Vacine and Treatment

A friend of mine was recently diagnosed with shingles so I felt I should discuss this nasty virus once again.  If you ever had chicken pox, you are at risk for getting shingles and believe me, you don't want it.  Shingles is a painful rash with blisters that scab over and may take 4 weeks or more to heal.  The Read the full post…

Vegetarian Tacos are muy delicioso!

There are times when I think I could easily become a vegetarian, especially when I try a new dish that is as good as the vegetarian tacos I had at Local Lime restaurant in Little Rock and the tofu fried rice at Sai Tai here in Jonesboro.  My husband and I celebrated our 23rd anniversary this past weekend by spending Read the full post…

Cooking Demonstration At The Health Expo

[ Post by Lisa Tedder ][ Post on April 2, 2010 ][ In Uncategorized ]

For those of you who live in or near Jonesboro, you should take advantage of  this year’s HMG Health and Fitness Expo at the ASU Convocation Center on April 10 and 11.  Admission is FREE and there are many FREE screenings available, even mammograms for qualified individuals.  You can find out about different fitness options offered locally and talk to nurses and physicians.  You can also attend cooking demonstrations throughout the day.

I will be doing one of those demonstrations at 10 a.m. on Saturday.  I am looking forward to doing this but have to admit being a little nervous.  My presentation will be Fabulous Fish since I love fish so much and since it is so easy to prepare and so good for you.  I will also be making my garlic green beans and giving other cooking tips.  My daughter Grace has agreed to be my sous chef.  She is such a great assistant in the kitchen.  I am excited to be able to show just how quick fish is to cook and let others sample how delicious it is.

Let’s hope the bulging disc in my neck is better by then.  I’ve been gardening, mostly spreading mulch, in addition to cleaning the barn daily and my workouts.  I guess it has been too much as my neck started hurting in the middle of the night.  Motrin usually helps after a few days.  So I’m going to use myself as an example: get out there and exercise, garden or whatever, just be careful.  The spring weather will have many of you out in your yard, cleaning up the beds, planting and pruning.  However, take it slow.  Don’t try to do it all in one weekend.  Do a little bit each afternoon since daylight lasts till 7 or so.  Take some ibuprofen and a hot bath afterwards to prevent stiffness and soreness.  Stretching after any activity will also help plus make you more flexible and strong the next time you work out.

I’m glad some of you have tried the recipes I offer and liked them.  I plan to make the whole wheat and flaxseed pancakes this weekend and throw in some blueberries.  There will be buttermilk syrup too!  Easter dinner will be simple: ham, asparagus, homemade bread, deviled eggs and lemon cupcakes.  Happy Easter and I hope you have a lovely, sunny weekend.
