VICTORY GARDEN

So…. we are in the middle of a pandemic. It is all so surreal, I have not known what to do with myself. I have been cooking a lot but the kiddos are like wild animals and start eating it all before I can take pictures for the blog. So, I decided to create a Victory Garden (Victory gardens, also called war gardens or food gardens for defense, were vegetable, fruit, and herb gardens planted at private residences and public parks in the United StatesUnited KingdomCanadaAustralia and Germany[1][2] during World War I and World War II. Wartime governments encouraged people to plant victory gardens not only to supplement their rations but also to boost morale.[3])

Cooking Trick – Soaking Fish or Shrimp in Milk

My mother Patsy (she hates that name) taught me this trick and it has helped so much over the years. We have all experienced how when you get the fish home from the market sometimes it smells a little fishy. I always smell the fish before I buy it , but occasionally when I get home it still smells. I am not talking, time to throw it out fishy, just a little.

Well if you put it in a bowl and add cold milk, cover it and let it sit in the fridge for about a half hour the smell goes away. Then just rinse it off, pat it dry and cook as you normally wood. I have used this trick on haddock, cod, swordfish and shrimp. I have never tried it with salmon or anything else.

I don’t know why it works, but it does!

Health-Ade Kombucha Product Review (unsolicited)

After a long bout of cancer/chemotherapy, I am trying to get my body recovered and on the right track. One thing recommended to me was Kombucha for gut health. It is a wonderful Probiotic. I have tried numerous brands and had a hard time with all of them. That is until someone recommended Health-Ade Kombucha. It is really good. I buy it weekly now and even have my husband drinking it. I am feeling a lot better and this is one of the reasons. I especially recommend the Pink Lady Apple and the Pomegranate.

This is an unpaid, unsolicited review. I am not one to do product reviews, but I would like to share products that I love.
