How To Freeze Fresh Vegetables

• Before freezing, chop raw vegetables to the size you are likely to use when cooking. Thawed vegetables are more difficult to chop.
• Vegetables tend to lose color, flavor, texture, and even vitamins when they’re frozen, thanks to the activity of enzymes in the veggies. Blanching the vegetables (immersing them in boiling water for a short period of time) before freezing interrupts the activity of the enzymes, and will keep the frozen vegetables fresher longer.
• Blanching times vary from 1½ minutes for peas to 11 minutes for large ears of corn; consult a cookbook for the correct amount of time for the vegetable you want to freeze.
• After blanching, quickly immerse the vegetables in cool water to prevent them from overcooking.
• Leafy greens, tomatoes, and watery vegetables like zucchini and squash can be frozen without blanching. If you’re planning to make zucchini bread, grate the zucchini before you freeze it.

• Rated G – This movie will feature common cartoon animals (like dogs or chickens), at least 7 pop culture references, and a teacup pig voiced by Kevin Hart.
• Rated PG – This movie will also feature cartoon animals, only they will be more obscure (like emus or voles), ruder, more flatulent, and will make 1 weird sexual innuendo that will fly over your kids’ heads but will make you die a little inside.
• Rated PG-13 – The main couple in this movie (the kangaroo and the ibis) will definitely have sex at some point but it will be tasteful and discreet, as if filmed through a white tulle curtain.
• Rated R – The main character’s best friend (an alpaca voiced by Kevin Hart) will die in some gruesome way. His love interest will be a hooker panda with a heart of gold and a jaded world-view.


Downright Cheesy

Forget chocolate, you can now get an Easter egg made from … cheese. Food blogger Annem Hobson has just launched ‘The Cheester Egg’, a solid egg made entirely from cheese. It’s the result of a collaboration with independent artisan cheese company Wildes Cheese. And as if an Easter egg made out of cheese isn’t enough, they’re also working on a ‘Cheese Advent Calendar’. That idea was hatched before last Christmas, and thousands of fans have registered to purchase one for this year’s holiday season. Quote: “There’s a whole army of cheese lovers out there showing me their support and I hope I’m doing them proud.” (Mug of hot cheese, anyone?)


How To Be Happy

Happiness stems from all aspects of life, from employment to health to friendships. A few findings about what inspires happiness worldwide …
✓ Self-employed people have higher overall life evaluations.
✓ People are happier when they maintain their social life throughout the work-week.
✓ People who have partners, solid relationships with extended family, or simply someone to count on are much happier than those who do not.
✓ Family, childhood, and schooling influence happiness later in life.
✓ Income is more important for happiness than education.
✓ But it’s not all about money. Social status at work, social relationships in the workplace, daily work structure, and goal-setting also play major roles in determining happiness levels.
✓ Unemployment is scarring. Even after people find another job, the unhappy feelings they’ve experienced while unemployed linger.
