Keep Your Broccoli Fresh

broccoli

To keep Broccoli at its freshest stage, store it for 3 to 5 days in a plastic bag in the fridge. Broccoli can also be stored by freezing it. Peel the leaves from the stalk. Blanch the Broccoli in steam for 5 minutes. Cool, and then place the Broccoli in a sealed plastic bag. Broccoli can be stored in the freezer for up to 10 months.

Baked Acorn Squash

acorn-squashSimple in preparation, this recipe will make you look like a gourmet chef. Try it with your family, or take it to the next potluck.

 

 

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

1 Acorn Squash

1 Tbsp. Butter

2 Tbsp. Brown Sugar

2 Teaspoons of Maple Syrup

Dash of Salt

HOW TO PREPARE:

1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

2.   Using a strong chef's knife, and perhaps a rubber mallet to help, cut the acorn squash in half, lengthwise, from stem to end. Use a spoon to scoop out the seeds and stringy stuff in the center of each half. Score the insides of each half several times with a sharp knife. Place each half in a baking pan, cut side up. Add about a 1/4 inch of water to the bottom of the baking pan so that the skins don't burn and the squash doesn't get dried out.

3.   Coat the inside of each half with 1/2 a Tbsp. of butter. Add a dash of salt if you are using unsalted butter. Add a Tbsp of brown sugar to the cavity of each half. Dribble on a teaspoon of maple syrup to each half.

4.   Bake in the oven for 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes, until the squash is very soft and the tops are browned. Do not undercook. When finished, remove from oven and let cool a little before serving. Spoon any remaining buttery sugar sauce over and serve!

 

 

 

Silverbrook Gets Ready For Opening Day 2014

tashaTasha Says, “As we prepare for the Opening Day 2014 of the Silverbrook Country Store, it makes us think about other starts to the Spring and Summer season including Baseball Opening Day.   Major League Baseball's first officially recognized franchise the Cincinnati Reds were historically awarded the privilege of "opening the Openers" and hosted the outings from 1876-1989. Only twice during this time (1877 and 1966) were they forced to debut on the road due to rain. Finally in 1990, the tradition was broken and the Reds were scheduled to appear as the visitors against the Houston Astros. Despite the prestige of being christened as baseball's opening act, Cincinnati has posted an average record of 50-52-1 that has been shadowed by the countless spectacles off the baseline including parades, fireworks, circus performances and the opening of new ballparks in 1884, 1894, 1912 and 2003.  Now a national event,, Opening Day has also become a "political pitcher's" arena for U.S. Presidents to show their "stuff." On April 14, 1910, President, and baseball enthusiast, William Howard Taft attended the home opener in Washington D.C. Since then, eleven sitting U.S. presidents have tossed out the season's ceremonial first pitch. One standout, Harry S. Truman, showcased his ambidextrous talent when he threw out balls with both his right and left arm in 1950.  Now, if someone could just throw me a bone!  Woof!"
