Cold Ice Tea on a Hot day in Texas
It is a hot day here in Canyon, Texas. The temperaure is 104 and I have the air conditioner on full blast. Just got a glass of ice tea and now I am ready to compile the newsletter

This afternoon I have been chasing a fly around trying to kill it.  Since I am an old lady (75) my reflexes are what they used to be. Also it may have to do with the fact I have muscular dystrophy. I have been chasing this little pesky fly around long enough this afternoon I had time to name him. I chased Little Joe here and there. I chased him everywhere.  I finally killed Little Joe and was so proud of myself. I was smiling as I started on the newsletter and about 15 minutes later I noticed  Little Joe had brought his big sister with him on his afternoon outing to my house. So far Big Bertha has not lost her life yet but hopelfully her visit will end with a bang soon..

I was gifted a Ninja 5 in 1 Grill. I would like some ideas on using it. I did read somewhere that using olive oil with it would cause some smoking and using canola oil would be better. I have a Mister (sprays oil on food) and plan to use it. I understand the air fryer fries taste better when they have a tiny bit of vegetable oil and seasonings on them. In one of the videos on You Tube I saw where a small pan was used to cook veggies in it. Does anyone know where I can find one of those pans. I want to start using the Ninja 5 in 1 and try all the different functions on it. I feel the air fryer crisper will be what I use the most. I would love ideas of what you have used yours for and any tips and advice you can give me. ... Nancy

Hints and Tips

Keep flour fresh: To keep your bug free during the summer months, add a bay leaf to the container- its a natural insect repellent.

Potato salad helper: When boiling for salad, add a little vinegar to the water.The vinegar helps to keep the outside of the cooked potatoes firm,so they hold their shape better when cut.

Fast chopped scallions: Before chopping a scallion, make one slice
lengthwise from the root to the tip- you will cut twice as much.

Speedy mashed avocodos: Making guacamole? mash your avocados with a potato masher instead of a fork, to finish in half the time.

Flavorful salad dressing: Boost the taste of bottled vinaigrette salad
dressing by stirring in a few spoonfuls of fresh herbs or a minced clove of fresh garlic.

No cherry pitter: Hold a straw close to it's end,just push it through
the bottom of each cherry to force the pit out through the stem end.

If possible, cook stews and soups in advance then refrigerate and skim the fat off the top before reheating.

Use low-fat 1 or 2% milk when a recipe calls for milk.

Try low-fat or nonfat sour cream, yogurts, cream cheese, and cottage cheese in recipes calling for them.
