Global Food Crisis Day : March 11th, 2009

It amazes me that it’s 2009. Aren’t we supposed to have flying cars and our own personal robots by now? I was really hoping for that Star Trek “beam me up” thing so I wouldn’t have to fly anymore… guess I’ll keep waiting. However, I find my self absolutely astonished that I even have to bring this up… World hunger (the ability to get food, people starving). It’s not just in third world countries, it’s on every continent. Am I alone in thinking that if there is one thing that CAN be fixed in this world, it would be feeding people… we aren’t talking rocket science here. Just a year or so ago I grew tomatoes and strawberries in my back yard. If I can do it, trust me, anyone can!!! 🙂 Ok, I’m not here to preach. I just know this is something we CAN get our head around if we all take the time to move forward, together, at the same time. Here is some info…read, then click on the banner and do what you can to be a part of fixing this problem. The global food crisis threatens the lives of millions and has been called a “silent tsunami,” unleashing turmoil against the most vulnerable children. The Secretary-General of the UN calls it a “moral outrage” and estimates that as much as $40 billion a year is required for the next three to five years. Compassion International exists as an advocate for children in poverty and works in some of the areas hardest hit by this crisis. We are providing solutions through local churches with nutritional...

Frogmore Stew 101 : My First Recipe

So I’ve been blogging since 2002 and not once have I ever shared a recipe- I’ve talked about food, A LOT! Today is a first. A lot of my friends on twitter and facebook often comment on my update when I mention Frogmore stew so I decided to take some pictures and actually post how I cook this easy but wonderful meal. Here goes.  This recipe will feed 15 people easily.  For those of you in the Lowcountry, this is nothing new and we all have our “ways” of doing it. Please throw your .02 cents in! Ingredients: – 5 pounds of shrimp (FRESH!) – 6 pounds of kielbasa (I like the sausage best, so I put in a lot) – 36 new potatoes (small red ones- this is rough) – 24 niblet ears of sweet yellow corn – 1 bag of Zatarans Shrimp & Crab Boil (Old Bay Seasoning is good too) – 1/2 stick of butter You’ll need a BIG deep pot filled a little more than half way with water.  Get the water boiling and add the 1/2 stick of butter & Zatarans crab boil.  Now that it’s boiling good and the butter has melted add your potatoes.  The potatoes will cook for about 15 mins then you’ll throw in the corn.  Don’t really throw them in, you’ll burn your self and get water every where.  Another 15 mins for the corn to cook.  Next put in the Kielbasa.  The kielbasa will cook for about 10 mins and then you’ll add the shrimp.  The shrimp only needs about 7-10 mins to turn pink. That’s it!  Well,...
