Eat and drink what you like. Speaking English is apparently what kills you.
From Grandma's Attic

What Grandma knew about saving money in 1948
In an effort to do more de-cluttering in our home, my husband
and I were going through a box of items left from his
grandmother who died last April. Many items were thrown out.
However we found a book entitled "1003 Household Hints and
Work Savers" written by Michael Gore in 1948. Inside the front
cover, I see the price Granny paid was a whopping 50 cents.
What a deal!
Some ideas are too old to be applicable in today's lifestyle,
but many ideas can still be used today. The following is a
montage of ideas that would still help the frugal household
save a few pennies here and there.
* When shopping at a fruit stand, watch for bruised fruits and
veggies to cut up. I regularly ask for bruised tomatoes at a
deep discount and cut them up to use in salads, on tacos, and
in other dishes. I do the same with fruit. If the price is not
a deep discount, I offer the vendor a lower price. They watch
for me regularly. They know I might buy up their hard to sell
* Prevent fruit and vegetable spoilage by lining the drawer
bottom with a paper towel. This absorbs excess moisture that
forms in the drawer and causes faster spoilage. I like this
idea, but to save money, use a dishtowel instead.
* Use liquid from canned vegetables in soups, sauces, stews,
gravies, and casserole dishes and for making a white sauce.
The canned liquid is full of flavor and vitamins.
* Don't throw beet-tops away. They make a fine, free
substitute for spinach greens, being rich in vitamins,
minerals, and iron.
* Wrap a head of lettuce in a towel to prevent it from
"rusting" so quickly.
* Don't waste celery tops. Cut them up and use in stews,
soups, roasts, and in stuffing.
* You will have no tears if you peel an onion under cold
running water. (NOTE FROM ME: This seems to me to a waste of water. I guess you can also do it in a bowl of water and then use that water to water your plants)
* Fried potatoes will be deliciously golden brown if sprinkled
lightly with flour before frying.
* Save your orange and lemon rinds, boil in water and add the
flavored water to iced tea, lemonade, and fruit drinks.
* Have just a small amount of flake cereal left? Don't throw
it out. Crush it up and put it in a meatloaf or meatballs. Or
toss the flakes with some melted margarine and grated cheese
for a delicious casserole topping.
* Cooking with a double boiler saves money. Cook boiled eggs
in the bottom while cooking oatmeal or something else in the
* Don't throw out the leftover coffee or tea. Pour it into
empty ice cube trays and freeze for iced coffee or iced tea.
* When boiling eggs, you don't need to boil them until they
crack. Once they come to a boil, turn off heat and cover with
a plate for 15 minutes. If heating up a breakfast roll or
muffin, put it on top of the plate and let the heat from the
steam in the pan heat up your breakfast.
* To keep fine china from being scratched, put paper doilies
between plates and saucers when stacking them.
* When food is fried on a gas range, popping grease frequently
spatters the burners not in use. Pie pans placed upside down
over the unit burners to protect them and are easily cleaned.
* When cutting fresh flowers from the garden be sure to remove
all lower leaves below the water line, decaying vegetable
matter poisons the water.
* Use your double boiler to cook the vegetables in the bottom
and the white sauce or cheese sauce for the veggies in the
top. This saves time and fuel.
* Don't throw away those old flannels. I had a bottom flannel
sheet that ripped down the middle. I cut a pair of flannel
pajama pants for my son to wear made from the top sheet. The
ripped bottom sheet will make some nice potholders.
* If you have two or three worn-out blankets, stitch them
together and cover with a cotton print.
This fantastic list proves that even though the book was very
old, many of the tips are still helpful over 50 years later.

Goya Foods today announced that it will launch a multi-dimensional promotional campaign for the highly-acclaimed film “Bella”, winner of the 2007 Toronto International Film Festival’s “People’s Choice Award”. The independently-produced film, brainchild of Mexican icon Eduardo Verástegui who serves as both star and producer, has won enthusiastic reviews from a variety of media outlets including CNN’s Anna Maria Montero who called it “Powerful and moving … a true inspiration.” Written and directed by first-time filmmaker Alejandro Gomez Monteverde, this charming movie is a life-changing love story centered on family, friendship and a love that goes deeper than romance.Click Here to read Goya's Press Release
According to Goya Foods President Robert Unanue, “Goya has chosen to take on an active role in the promotion of this film owing to its emphasis on the strength of family and tradition. Of equal importance to us was the fact that “Bella” portrays Latinos in such a positive light and of course, that food plays an integral role in the story”. The film will open nationwide on October 26th and in support of its debut, Goya will host the October 23rd premiere in Miami, Florida at the Olympia Theatre, Gusman Center as well as the October 24th premiere in New York City at Tribeca Cinemas. Goya’s sponsorship includes strategic product placement in the DVD, the production and placement of 30-second radio commercials in Spanish language markets, as well as the underwriting of a short video produced by Goya on “Bella”. The video will be featured prominently at the Premiere as well as on Goya’s website www.goya.com, the “Bella” website, www.bellathemovie.com and the DVD version of the film scheduled for release in 2008.

Organic foods may be healthier for you, but they can have a sickening effect on your wallet.Here are five tips for going organic for less:
Produced without pesticides and other chemicals, organic produce, meat and dairy products can cost 50% to 100% more than their conventional counterparts, says Urvashi Rangan, a senior scientist and policy analyst with Consumer Reports' Greener Choices1. Despite those mark-ups, studies touting the health and environmental benefits of organic foods have made them more popular than ever before. More than 70% of consumers have at least one organic product on their shopping list, according to market research firm Hartman Group.

In a separate bowl, beat eggs and add salt and pepper, set aside. In a third, shallow bowl or plate, place Panko. Dredge thighs in flour to evenly coat the thigh. After coated, dip coated thigh in the egg wash, then into the panko, making sure that all of the chicken is coated. Repeat with all of the thighs. Carefully place coated chicken in heated oil, turn when panko turns a golden brown (about 5-7 minutes per side). After chicken is cooked, drain on paper towels and season with salt.
