While Tuesdays are reserved for tacos, last night was a night at the ball park with hot dogs and peanuts, tonight we're excited to continue a new practice of chowing down on some delicious Thai food. We like to think we always have time to make said delicacies, but most times we just opt for take out and a night of must see TV. There is a little place down the street that has the best grilled pineapple for dessert. That said, it'd be nice to know how to make our own so we can have it more frequently.
If you were as lucky as a few of us around the WSi headquarters, you'll be at Coors Field tonight rooting the Rockies to hopefully a win over the Mets from New York. If not, no worries. There are plenty of games. In the meantime, have a few friends over to watch, grill up some brats and chow down! Maybe add a plate of BLT dip to the mix, too. You know, it's up to you.
Some days just call for a twist on the classics, don't they? And given that it's Taco Tuesday, a tradition we like to observe, a margarita with a jalapeno kick sounds like the perfect company for the main dish.
If you ever find an excuse to eat steak, chances are, it's a good excuse. Nothing beat a slab or marinated meat, rich in taste and hearty goodness. When you add the simple pleasure of an egg over-easy to the equation, things just get better. Now take that combo, add beer, and you've entered a realm sweeter than life itself.
Though the light at the end of the metaphoric tunnel is still but a candle flickering in the wind, March 2010 brought with it an improved job market number. While we're far from out of the woods in terms of a strong economy yet again and a decreasing unemployment rate, small improvements like this, if they continue, will add up in the end. Slow and steady wins the race, right? The tortoise thought so, and we saw how that panned out for him.
As if we need to drive it home anymore, we must remind you again today is opening day for the Rockies at Coors Field. Sure we dropped a few to the Brewers on their turf this past week, but let's get back on our own clay and see what the deal is before we jump to any conclusions about the season. Whether you were lucky enough to score tickets to today's game or not, enjoy some of the fare the comes along with the game: Cracker Jacks. How much more "baseball" can you get? The food is even mentioned in that one song they sing during the game...
The crack of the bat and the roar of the crowd can only mean one thing: Opening day at Coors Field is upon us. It's that time again to head out to the park and watch your Colorado Rockies put the hurt on the out-of-towners. Play hooky and catch a day game or take the weekend and spend it in Lodo. Either way, enjoy the season and all the finer points of it, ball park concessions included. Nothing, and we mean nothing, tastes better than a hot dog at a game. Savor it, and follow these simple tips to eating healthy during your favorite summer outings.
There's a semi-hilarious commercial on the airwaves currently where a group of friends have gathered at a greasy spoon, each "dude" ordering a whopping burger, save for one. Seems this bloke wants a grilled cheese, much to the chagrin of his manly contingent. It comes with a child's place mat, complete with maze and other fun activities. Great, right? Well, not if you're trying to impress the cute blond at the neighboring table. The commercial then turns into an ad for a new adult sized grilled cheese sandwich at a fast food chain, but you don't have to wait in a drive thru for your own grown up grilled cheese. Try this double-decker and show them who's boss.
Ever heard of sensory processing sensitivity? Neither had we until we read Dr. Gupta's latest report regarding ultra-sensitivity to the world around us. Whether you want to subscribe to the notion or not, new findings are showing that how you are affected by stimulating elements is all caused by the way you view the world. Read on to see if it's all just in your head, too.
The thing about a good French Onion Soup is that it looks like it took the better part of two hours hour to prepare. You have that hot, steamy goodness under a piece of quickly-softening bread and a baked-on blend of cheese covering the entire top of the bowl. While some restaurants want you to believe it does actually take all that time, it really doesn't have to. Tonight, spoil yourself with a bowl, and do so in a fraction of the time you originally thought.
Seemingly, this is what should have happened initially when the legalization of medicinal marijuana was first passed, but the small agricultural town of Fruita, CO took the first step and is now taxing pot and all paraphernalia. They expect to raise a good deal of money by doing so, and hopefully other cities follow suit.
Granted a good batch of garlic knots does not an entire meal make, they sure do augment a hot pizza pie better than anything else, in our humble opinion. And seeing as how Lost is on this evening, and that is reason enough to order a half pepperoni/half sausage, we thought, "To be fair, we'll make the garlic knots." Whether or not this is actually going to happen is yet to be seen, but it's good to know we at least have a recipe for it.
...Now we're all being warned of scammers trying to cash in on the unsuspecting during these confusing times. It's sad, really, to have to not only keep up with what's happening at your local hospital in regards to how you getting treatment is going to happen from now on, but you also have to deal with people going door-to-door offering a "limited time only" scam bundle.Stay on your toes. It's all you can do...
Easter Sunday has come and gone, but that in no way means the food has. Like many families, you're probably in need of a second fridge for all the leftovers. Personally, we had three different chicken plates at dinner, but we know the lot of you maybe had the traditional ham. And like the reusing of the Easter eggs, that ham can be put to good use too.
Whether or not Apple's newest, much-anticipated device, the iPad, will live up to the immense hype behind it is yet to be seen. What is certain, though, is that it is already coveted by a wide number of people in all different professional and personal realms. This spans to the likes of those in the education and healthcare fields. While staying up to date on technology is beneficial, those who waited hours in line for the device should be prepared to wait in yet again when Apple decides to release the second version of the iPad soon, which has always been the case with the company.
We understand: Deviled eggs aren't everyone's cup of tea. Maybe it's the "devil" connotation on Easter Sunday that gets you. Maybe you just plain don't like the snack. That doesn't mean you still can't put dyed eggs to good use. You have to eat a delicious and hearty breakfast after the hunt, no? Why not take those eggs, scramble them, add some Canadian bacon, and set it all atop a few pieces of multigrain toast? Bam! Easy.
While the economy continues to struggle and unemployment numbers remain steady, it's good to see not all areas of expertise are feeling the wrath. Among the professions that seems to thrive regardless of economic climate, registered nurses are always in need., making the Top Hire list yet again.
The thrill of the hunt is sometimes more exciting than the actual end result. In this case, the act of searching for Easter eggs this Sunday is much more fun than the thought of ending up with a basket full of warm hard-boiled eggs. Fear not. Once that hunt ends, grab them from the bed of plastic grass and whip up a batch of deviled eggs. Nothing goes to waste that way, and you end up with a delicious snack.
In what can only be summed up with, "Wow, that's slightly disturbing," an experiment to see what would happen if a McDonald's Happy Meal was left out for a year seems to have gone terribly...right? Sure, the meat shriveled and the bun went completely stale, but the meal seemed to still hold the properties prime for a photo shoot. Eating it now would not be in anyone's best interest, but that should go without saying.
Growing up, we were never one for a heaping plate of spinach. The name alone does not conjure up the tastiest of side dishes, and the look of those wet and wilted leaves were none-too-appetizing. But, if you wanted to be strong like Popeye, spinach was a must. Now that we're a little wiser, we see the benefits of the veggie a bit clearer. However, we can now get it via liquid form. Liquid Iron - the name says it all, no?
