Summary

So much depends on being a lady. A true one knows that the question, “How are you today?” isn’t an invitation for her to unload the day’s ordeals. She knows that her unsolicited opinion of a friend’s fuzzy lime green sweater dress isn’t necessary, and she certainly knows better than to nag or spout gender clichés when the man in her life refuses to stop and ask for directions.   
As a Lady Would Say is every  woman’s guide to being delicate in an indelicate world of awkward situations, difficult people, and thorny social dynamics. Sheryl Shade’s clever cataloging of real-world scenarios is a humorous look at how a lady should respond in any number of life’s irksome situations, along with a guide to which words should never leave her mouth. Get ready to question your own feminine sensibilities, and examine the way you interact with the world around you.

    More than 20 years ago, when our children were very small, I felt the
    need for better drinking water quality and I purchased a small counter top
    appliance that hooked up to the water tap.
    It didnt take long before I realized that this was just a bandaid and
    that something more powerful was needed and thus I embarked on a
    mission to educate myself about home drinking water filtration systems.
    This was pretty much in the days before I had a computer, so I looked at
    trade magazines and sent for every drinking water brochure I could find,
    read them all and compared for quality and price. This convinced me very
    quickly of the benefits and affordability of solid carbon block technology and
    I ended up with a company that took the water filtration business very
    seriously and in my opinion did produce and still produces

    How to Prepare and Cook Food at...

    The general perception about preparing food is that it takes a lot of time and energy. This is true to some extent, but it is also true that many of us spend a lot of time on the food preparation rather than the actual cooking. This is what makes it a chore rather than an enjoyable experience.
     
    
    	However, food preparation need not be time consuming if you plan ahead and know how to manage your time skillfully.
     
    
    	In this book you'll discover numerous tips and ideas that will actually make food preparation easier and make it more fun:
     
    
    	This book features dozens of great food preparation and cooking ideas, including food handling safety, and preparing great meals at home. These are simple tips that all cooks in the kitchen can follow for cooking a delicious and safely prepared food.
     
    
    	The book covers  all of the following: 
    
    	* Meat and Poultry 
    
    	* Fish and Seafood 
    
    	* Fruit 
    
    	* Vegetables 
    
    	* Eggs, Cheese, and Other Dairy Products 
    
    	* Salads 
    
    	* Soups, Sauces, Gravies, and Stuffings 
    
    	* Herbs and Seasonings 
    
    	* Bread, Rolls, Cookies, and Cakes 
    
    	* Pancakes, Waffles, Pies, and Dessert 
    
    	* Beverages 
    
    	* General Food Storage 
    
    	* Home Preserving, Canning, Freezing, Drying
     
    
    	Here's just a small sample of the tips included: 
    
    	A mixture of olive oil and vinegar will tenderize meat. Rub the mixture on the meat and let it stand several hours before cooking. 
    
    	Another way to tenderize meat is to rub baking soda into it, let it stand for several hours, and then wash and cook it. 
    
    	Meats can be marinated in a plastic bag: Put the meat in the bag along with the marinade, seal the bag, and turn it a few times during the day. 
    
    	If you've forgotten to thaw meat but want to cook it anyway, cook it half as long again as you would if it were thawed. 
    
    	Meat will shrink less during roasting if it's cooked longer at a lower temperature. 
    
    	Since a roast will thaw more quickly if all sides are exposed to air, elevate it on a cake cooling rack-or use the burner grill from your range. Put newspaper or a plate under the rack to catch the water and other drippings. 
    
    	A shallow pan is better than a deep one for cooking a roast because it allows heat to circulate around the meat. 
    
    	If you need to defrost frozen ground beef quickly, try sprinkling it with the amount of salt recommended for cooking (salt is a great thawing agent), or heat it in your dishwasher turned to its drying cycle. 
    
    	A roast slices more easily if you let it stand for about 15 minutes after taking it from the oven. 
    
    	To eliminate most of the smoke and grease when broiling fatty meats, pour a cup of water into the bottom portion of the broiler pan before putting it in the oven. 
    
    	To speed up the ripening of' pears, tomatoes, or peaches, put them in a brown paper bag with a ripe apple. Punch some holes in the bag, and put it in a cool place out of direct sunlight. Or, put the 
    
    	fruit in a box and cover it with a newspaper to seal in the natural gases that promote ripening. 
    
    	To speed up the ripening of avocados, place them in a brown paper bag and store the bag in a warm place. Once ripe, you can retard spoilage by keeping them in the refrigerator. 
    
    	You can judge if an avocado is ripe by sticking a toothpick in the stem end. If it slides in and out with ease, the avocado is ready to eat. 
    
    	To keep .an unused avocado half from turning dark, press the pit back into place before refrigerating the uneaten half. 
    
    	For a perfect avocado half, cut the fruit in half lengthwise, pull the halves apart, and plunge a very sharp chefs knife into the pit. The pit will pull away cleanly with the knife. Remove the avocado halves from the shell with a spoon, or very gently with your fingers.
