Shop on Tuesdays……………

Try to never buy meat from the supermarket on Monday mornings. It’s likely that those packages for sale were not sold over the weekend, and most shipments of fresh meat arrive on Monday afternoon or on Tuesdays.

Meat in the morning…………..

The best time to shop for meat is in the morning. That’s usually when the butcher marks down meat that is close to its sell by date. If you won’t cook it now, freeze it for later. Now get out there and save some money!

The City of Hamilton will host a weekend of holiday events Friday, Dec. 5 to Sunday, Dec. 7, filled with Santa, parades, an array of festive entertainment and plenty of shopping.

The weekend festivities will kick off with the Lantern Parade for children on Friday at 5:30 p.m., according to Karen Wittmer, program coordinator for volunteers, City of Hamilton and co-chair for Christkindlmarkt. The parade will be followed by the opening of Christkindlmarkt on Friday at 6 p.m. at The Courtyard Marriott in Hamilton.

Christkindlmarkt will run Friday, Dec. 5, from 6-11 p.m.; Saturday, Dec. 6, from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Sunday, Dec. 7, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Lanterns for the parade are available for purchase for $5 or families may bring a flashlight. Christkindlmarkt is a German Christmas market to highlight German Village that will feature German food, beer, music and wares – from greenery and German Nutcrackers to brats, metts and German cookies and more.

“The Lantern Parade will kick off the Christkindlmarkt. It starts at The Presbyterian Church of Hamilton on Front Street and continue across High Street down to St. Julie Billiart Parish. Representatives from both churches will tell the children stories. Then, everyone can head over to the Marriott for Christkindlmarkt,” Wittmer said.

Guests can do some Christmas shopping and celebrate the German tradition in the German Village area, she added.

Another downtown highlight that residents won’t want to miss will be the Santa Parade on Saturday, Dec. 6 from 11 a.m. to noon. The “snow or shine” parade will begin at the intersection of Martin Luther King Boulevard and High Street, travel down High Street to Riverfront Plaza and end at Christkindlmarkt, which will be held at the Marriott. Santa will visit with children at Christkindlmarkt until 1 p.m.

“We hope to bring children and their parents together for the festivities that kick off the holidays and start the Christmas season. Part of Christmas is getting people together, enjoying family time and experiencing a variety of different activities,” said Barb Zellner, co-chair of Christkindlmarkt and committee member for Hamilton Welcomes the Holidays.

In addition to shopping at Christkindlmarkt, festivities will continue throughout the day on Sunday with the German Village Christmas Walk from noon to 5 p.m. on 3rd Street. This snow or shine event is in its 23rd year and features a day that includes a visit with Santa, live reindeer, strolling musicians, horse-drawn carriage rides as well as a walk-through of some of Hamilton’s private homes and historical buildings, and a number of children’s activities including a petting zoo.

“The German Village Christmas Walk not only reflects on Hamilton’s rich heritage, but it showcases many of the historic homes, landmarks and wonderful businesses that we have within our community. It has grown into one of the area’s most highly anticipated events, and it’s a free, family-friendly, fun day,” said Ann Dennett, chairman of the German Village Christmas Walk.

11 Ways to ease a nasty Hangover
We chugged H20, popped pills, and even rolled in the sheets to ease our throbbing cranium. Here’s what worked
Brittany Risher

You know better than to buy anything labeled “hangover cure” for the mornings after a wild night, but there has to be something out there to ease the headache, nausea, and overall sense of feeling like crap—right?

We went to the experts with your list of hangover remedies (thank you, Facebook fans) and asked them what really works. While the research on this topic is limited and there’s no one solution to fix all the symptoms of a hangover, a few things can help alleviate specific problems…..

Meat is expensive enough, but a big part of the cost is the price you’re paying the butcher to cut it up for you. Buy the largest cuts of meat you can, then cut it up, wrap it in foil, and put in a plastic bag in your freezer. Here are some more tips for butchering meat.



* Many stores will butcher big cuts of meat for you for free, so ask before doing it yourself!

* Use the sharpest knife you have, and never use a serrated knife, which will shred the meat.

* For illustrated instructions on how to cut any piece of meat, type the word “butchering” along with the type of meat into a search engine online. There are many tutorials (some including video) online.

Supermarkets have started using their own wording on meat packages to make you think the meat you are buying is a better grade than what it really is. Most of the major chains are buying more select-grade beef, but may call it by any number of fancy names such as “top premium beef”, “prime quality cut”, “select choice”, or “premium cut.” Be aware that these titles don’t mean a thing.

Stacking fine china? Insert paper plates between the real plates before stacking to prevent scratches. You can use the same trick for stacking nonstick pans.
