A little about my favorite Oil…………………..

Olive Oil – Olive oil has long been acknowledged as a heart-healthy fat. One compound thought to play a role in supporting heart health is oleic acid, a type of monounsaturated fat found in high quantities in olive oil. It may reduce the risk of heart disease when used in place of other fat sources.

National Southern Food Day is celebrated all around the United States on January 22nd each year. Southern Cuisine is a historical regional cuisine form of states south of the Mason-Dixon Line and extends to Texas.

The influences of southern food come from African, English, Scottish, Irish, French and Native American cultures. Many items, like squash, tomatoes and corn (including grits), and the practice of barbequing, were influenced from the Native American Indian tribes such as the Seminoles, Caddo and Choctaw.

Some traditional dishes, such as fried chicken, came from the Scottish and many of the spices are of African influence. So today enjoy some fried chicken, barbeque, collards greens, black eye peas and all the other famous southern comfort food.

When buying Cauliflower…………………….

Look for cauliflower that has a creamy white color with densely packed florets that are free of blemishes, browning or wet spots. The cauliflower head should feel heavy in your hand for its size. Give the leaves a good look. They should be fresh and vibrant, which is a sign that the cauliflower was recently harvested.

Eat the skin………………

All fruits and veggies have nutrient and fiber dense skin, so if you have tender product don’t bother peeling them. Just make sure it is washed well. Carrots, sweet potatoes and beets all roast up great skin on.

Meat Grades…………………..

Meat grading is a voluntary system used as a guideline to identify the tenderness, marbling and overall palatability of the meat. Lower grades of meat are not less nutritious and often tend to be leaner and better for you. In order of best first, here are the common consumer grades:

* U.S. Prime – best grade of beef which comes from steers, heifers or young bulls. This is a small percentage of the meat that is produced in the U.S. Most of this goes to restaurants.
* U.S. Choice – Less marbling than prime, choice cuts can come from steers, heifers, cows or young bulls. Used in restaurants as well as consumer retail.
* U.S. Select – The least expensive of the common grades, usually leaner, less marbled meats. Select cuts come from the same animals as choice cuts.

Cooking Chicken……………….

Covered chicken takes longer to cook in the oven than uncovered chicken. When frying, grilling, broiling, or sautéing chicken, remove pieces as they get done to avoid overcooking while finishing other pieces. White meat and smaller pieces, such as breasts and wings, will get done faster than dark meat pieces, such as legs and thighs.
