Chief's Tip of the Day

Those who think they are a fool are who we should try to emulate. For they are humble, and willing, and able to learn, and are better for the introspection. The person who think he is wise, has fallen into one of humanity's greatest traps. For the wise man thinks he has all of the answers, and that he can ignore new, and differing opinions other than his own.

That person is neither humble, nor respected, but is the true fool.

Tip 2:
There is no greater feeling than the genuine love between a parent and their children. Therefore, respect, love, and cherish you children. Set boundaries for them, to keep them safe as they grow. At the same time, encourage them to explore all things within those boundaries, that they may succeed and gain confidence, and fail that they learn patience, and wisdom. Above all, give every bit of yourself to them, and to your loving partner. They want your time, and attention more than any toy, or video game. They want to earn your respect, just as you must earn theirs.

Seeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North

Chief's Tip of the Day:

When using herbs and/or spices to flavor sauces, soups, gravies, etc, and those flavor elements are too woody to chew, or have a nasty flavor when bit into, such as rosemary, cloves, etc, place them into a SS mesh teaball, muslin bag, or cheese cloth so that they can flavor the food, and easily be removed when they've done their part.

Tip 2: Using leftover bones from cooked meat is a great way to make wonderful broths and stocks. Just make sure that they aren't the bones that Rover was chewing on in the back yard.

Luca--dedicate a tea ball for spices/herbs. I also have little muslin tea bags that I'll use (and have been known to use gauze squares when I couldn't find the tea ball). I use one of those "lingerie" bags for hosiery and delicates when I make stock using chicken carcasses. I can lift all the bones out, strain the veggies, and just have stock left.
