The reasoning behind tonight's recipe is two-fold. On the one hand, salmon fillets are on sale at the local King Soopers, so that, right there, is reason enough to have the uber-healthy fish for dinner. But given that we, too, have caught the Olympic fever, we thought of spicing up the dish with some flavors from Japan. So if you happen to be stopping at the store on the journey home this evening, pick up the ingredients for this dish. And watch your country bring home a gold or two.
Sometimes all it takes for a good dinner is turning the box over to find the suggested recipe on the back. While this Turkey Pot Pie differs slightly from the one a member of WSi told us about earlier, it comes courtesy from the box of Pepperidge Farms puff pastries. Give it a go. It's Pepperidge Farms, after all. We've got to think they have a pretty good handle on a decent recipe for as long as they've been around.
Though more extensive testing needs to be done, initial reports indicate that patients in intensive care units have lower mortality rates when visited by a team of hospital staff versus a single person. The findings are early, sure, but the stats are a promising look into what could happen if hospitals were to staff more to fulfill these needs.
Fancy, no? Any dish that includes verbiage such as "a l'Orange" automatically takes it from ordinary to extraordinary. Don't let it scare you off from trying it out, though. Reading over the recipe, there's no blowtorch/flambe' involved. It is merely a classed up orange chicken. It's just way more fun to say and makes you sound extra classy when you say it this way.
You've heard it before: A glass of wine a day can actually be beneficial to your health as it acts as a sort of antioxidant and can promote heart health. Of course, back in the day, doctors used to prescribe cigarettes for certain ailments. Time change, sure, and a glass of wine can be good for you, but where is it necessary to draw the line?
It's supposed to snow all weekend. For some, that will no doubt put the kibash on plans, but for those of us that knew it was coming, our plans just get better. When all that's on the agenda is to watch movies while the snow falls outside, it's hard for anything to get ruined. And what goes better with a few indie dramas and romantic comedies than homemade pretzels? Few things, that's what.
As we move further and further into the digitalized age of everything being electronic, instant gratification, and the computerization of just about anything an everything, doctor's have begun to augment their payment programs. Fleeting are the days of "bill me later" if your insurance does not cover the expense of your entire medical bill. MD's are now requiring credit cards be put down to ensure payment of services is made. While there are definitely pros and cons of this practice, we'd like to know what you think. Should not having a credit card disqualify you from seeing your doctor? Why wouldn't you, then, just get a credit card?
"Alright, so I'm having pasta for dinner, but I has sushi for lunch, so a combination of that should be tonight's recipe." That's the sentiment expressed by our IT guy, and we couldn't agree more. It's supposed to snow tonight in Colorado, and the temperature is supposed to drop as well, so something warm and a dish that will stick to the bones sounds ideal.
We're all doing what we can to cut costs in this economy. It is by no means an easy or entertaining task, but simple measures can pay off in huge ways. For instance, stop with the coffee shop visits. In a short time, you'll be surprised at the money saved. Beyond that, consider packing a lunch for your workday versus eating out. An added benefit of making a lunch, is you have complete control over the contents, so why not make it as healthy as you want to. These hoagies are a good jumping off point.

Add a little must-see-TV, a good romantic comedy, a quality book, or maybe just some dim lights and soft music and you've got a recipe for a perfect week night. In fact, that sounds akin to Heaven at the moment. While you decide which activity sounds the best for this cold Tuesday, we'll go ahead and offer some chicken enchiladas as the eats for the evening.
