Happy 4th of July, Independence Day for America!

Here are a number of places to visit to discover more about how you can enjoy the Fourth of July with fun facts, obscure details, related places to see, food, festivals, and a lot more:

Good news these days is that Longaberger Baskets moved all their outsourced jobs from China back to Ohio. However, that does not tell us the history of the Easter Basket —

The basket was originated in Poland, and perhaps some other Eastern European nations nearby. As with the hand painted eggs seen around Eastern Europe, Russian, Ukraine, and Belarus, several iterations of the basket may exist. However, the Polish basket is well known.

On Easter Saturday, food that would be prepared for the meals on Easter Saturday and Sunday were placed into a basket – sometimes a basket made of bread – and taken to church by the children in the families. There, teh food was blessed for the holiday meals. It is a charming custom.

Some people enjoy bargain shopping and discount coupons. It’s fun!

Others like to save money they can use for other necessities, luxuries, and emergencies. That’s a good reason to bargain shop in the 2010’s – especially with national economic worries.

Still other people bargain shop because they cannot afford retail prices in grocery, clothing, restaurants, and other retail places – especailly upscale establishments.

I think all bargain shoppers can enjoy bargain hunting, even those that MUST save money to make ends meet. It should not be a mark of poverty.

Let’s acknowledge that our country produces and imports some cheaply made goods at both low and high prices. Avoid  both types. 

If consumers can resist Madison Avenue and media advertisements that urge and even trick them into spending money best used elsewhere, then they have a victory. Look a the article below for links to regional bargains and tips for finding even more in your own town.

Increasing numbers of free magazines, newsletters and eBooks are becoming available online as more people learn how to create them.

While some of these offerings are strictly sales literature, others are informative, entertaining, and fun to have. Even employment news and trade or business journals are available online these days.

I had a problem with some of the events on Paula Deen television shows regarding the food content of certain recipes and the whole concept of the “party” show.  Some episodes of Best Dishes I lived very much.

I also liked her volunteer work, but then became disillusioned. She seemed to be another story of a very hard life turned around to become too much spending, too much eating, and too much acting. 

My problem with Ms. Deen was her partnering with Smithfield Ham, which hired groups of undocumented workers and then turned them in to INS and hired more. They have since remedied hiring practices and I follow them on Twitter, but I’m still a bit irked.

Paul helped to provide what she called “protein” from Smithfield to poor children and families,  but the product was not ham, bacon or sausage — It was actually hotdogs and/or cheapest sausage made from pork byproducts/remains. It’s a dishonest and unhealthy thing. You remember the chicken commercial that lamented “parts is parts”? What pig parts were in that protein?

The pork-giving program to the poor may end with Chinese ownership, but perhaps Ms. Deen should not be dumped from FN because of Smithfield, racism, or pushing diabetes-exacerbating foods. All that can be pretty much fixed.

If Paul is being sued with her brother for running hostile work environments and discriminatory workplace operations, and she loses that lawsuit, then that is the reason to cancel her contract with Food Network. 

Someone asked how many ways we can use baking soda — Wouldn’t it be great if one simple, inexpensive product like this could be used for dozens of jobs around the home? At just 39 – 50 cents a box, it really can! Baking soda can be used not only in a variety of ways in food, but for medicinal purposes, cleaning, and a whole lot more.

Many people have found that taking baking soda in a glass of water daily balances the body’s PH and they feel that this regime is even preventing cancer. The research literature may not be sure about it, but many regular people are certain.

thinking about how to use baking soda, I was transported to a time at work in a restaurant when Paul Simon was singing 50 Ways To Leave Your Lover on the radio.

It was there that I first learned to use baking soda and ice cubes to clean a burnt coffee pot.

See what else I learned at:

We know that with supply lines cut off during the last part of the American Civil War, the Confederacy was in danger of starving to death in larger numbers than occurred before their surrender.

My great grandfather fought for the Union Army (Ohio) during the War Between the States and afterward, helped to complete parts of the National Road, Route 40 in Ohio.

I’ll share with readers some of the food and recipes that he and his wife enjoyed during the 1860s and some that were reported to be Abraham Lincoln’s favorites.

A boy in the Czech Republic lost his family in WWI, lost his Aunt and his home when she died, and became an apprentice to bakers at a pastry shop in grammar school.  While he learned, he was beaten by the men there until he could not walk…. but he cooked in the best mansions in Hollywood and became White House Executive Chef. His story was lost when his book went out of print.

The Lost History of Chef Francois Rysavy

His childhood will bring you to tears, as will his delicious blueberry pie. He was the White House Chef, buts hes been forgotten until now. He was an incredible world class traveler and war survivor.
