Ham, Cheddar, and Potato Frittata

My new job is great. It is not great to home at 630pm (at the earliest) every night and still have to fix dinner. I know I could just not cook but what would I eat for lunch the next day? Cafeteria food is ok sometimes but it’s greasiness and boring flavors get old. I mean, how many slices of pizza and chicken strips can one person eat?!? This meal is quick and good for any of the three meals in busy day.

Today I will be making a batch of Pomegranate Jam using local fruits …..

I am making Pomegranate Jam today for an American couple who are on holiday here and they would like three different flavors to pack them up as a trio for Christmas gifts back home. They fell in love with this island and the local fruits and produce and this is a good way for them to take back some glorious fruit and a jar brimming with memories….

So today I am making:

Pomegranate Vanilla
Pomegranate Lavender
Pomegranate Cranberry

20131101-073907.jpg

Do my lovely American couple like their jams runny or more solid? Textured or jelly form? How sweet should they be ? Well opinions vary and it is always best to ask them about their preferences and tailor make everything to their liking. This is one of the differences about artisan as opposed to mass production. Don’t get me wrong, I love the off-the-shelf jams but this is the difference between buying…

From The White House: This Is Important News About Obamacares AND Christmas In Washington At The National Building Museum.


 

By Jueseppi B.

This is important:

Since October 1st, more than 1.2 million Americans are poised to gain coverage under Obamacare — and more are picking plans every day.

 

Now, the deadline is coming up to get coverage from the Marketplace in time for the new year. You have until December 23rd to select a plan in order for your health insurance to start byJanuary 1st.

 

So if you’re reading this email and you need health coverage, go to HealthCare.gov right now. Shop for a plan that meets your needs, compare prices, and get covered:

 

unnamed

 

Already have coverage? Most everyone knows at least one person who would benefit from coverage. Make sure they know how to sign up — it’s never been more important.

 

Visit WhiteHouse.gov/Get-Covered and do your part to spread the word:

 

unnamed (1)

 

While the website’s launch had its share of problems, the reality is there have been huge improvements. Today, Americans all around the country are signing up for coverage. And millions more are already getting expanded benefits under the health reform law.

 

But there are still millions of Americans who need to sign up and enroll.

 

So one more time:

 

If you don’t have coverage, go to HealthCare.gov to find a plan that meets your needs.

 

If you do have coverage, take a minute to pass on the message to someone you know.

President Barack Hussein Obama, First Lady Michelle LaVaughn Obama and their daughters, Sasha and Malia, pose for photographs alongside children dressed as elves, who are patients or former patients at Children’s National Medical Center.

 

They all presented donated gifts to the Obamas, to give to children at the hospital, at a taping of cable channel TNT’s Christmas in Washington at the National Building Museum in Washington.

Christmas just isn’t Christmas without adding a few biscotti to the cookie jar, or at least really meaning to.

  • 1/4 cup dried cherries
  • 1/3 cup prunes, chopped
  • 2 ounces dark chocolate

Preheat oven to 375. Butter and flour a baking sheet. In a large bowl, mix flour, salt, baking powder and sugar. Create a well in the center. Add eggs, date syrup, dried fruit and chocolate. Stir until incorporated. Drop dough onto baking sheet in two even logs, about two inches wide and 10-12 inches long. Bake until golden and firm. Let cool for 10 minutes. Lower heat to 325. Once biscotti has cooled slightly…
