I had always talked about my job at home and my son had expressed great interest. I thought it would be a treat to take him to work with me one day. He is usually shy but was very excited to meet everyone. When it was time to go home, he seemed a little down.
"Did you have a nice time?", I asked.
"It was OK", he replied, "But you said you worked with a bunch of clowns and I never got to see any of them!"

    Tip To Help Stop Foggy Glasses
    HDi Tissue in Mask

    I wear glasses and unless I have a mask that fits PERFECTLY across my nose, my glasses fog up. A quick tip:
    Fold up a tissue in to rectangle and place it on the inside of the mask where it goes over the nose and under the eyes. This will help block the air from moving up under your glasses.
    It may also help to twist the elastic loop before placing it around your ear. It will make the mask fit tighter.

    Do You Know The Difference Between Sanitizing & Disinfecting?
    Mop
    So much talk of ‘sanitizers’ and ‘disinfectants’- what does it all mean?!

    Disinfecting- Kills all bacteria/viruses the product is designed to be effective on. Everything. No mercy. All disinfectants have a ‘dwell time’- this is the amount of time the surface must stay wet with the product to be 100% effective.
    Disinfectants should not be used on humans. We have good bacteria in our bodies that we need to survive. Disinfectants can't distinguish between good and bad bacteria. This brings me to sanitizers:
    Sanitizing- Sanitizers lower bacteria to a safe level. This is why you see 'Hand Sanitizer' and not 'Hand Disinfectant'. It's also safer in food prep areas. (Disinfectants can be used in food prep areas also, but the area must be rinsed after the dwell time is achieved.) Sanitizers usually take between 15-30 seconds to work.

    Disinfect- But Read Directions first!
    Every disinfectant has a 'kill time'. This is how long the disinfectant must stay wet on a surface to remove 100% of virus/germs/bacteria. This can range from 1 minute all the way up to 10 MINUTES. It will also explain the PPE needed and what surfaces it can be used on.

    Cannot stress this enough! Try not to touch your face and wash your hands for at least 20 seconds. If you do not have access to hand soap or running water, use hand sanitizer.

    Did You Know?
    Mop

    The word 'Mop' can be traced back as far as the 15th century. Though it was probably nothing more than rags bundled together on a stick- it did the job.
    On June 11, 1893, Thomas W. Stewart, an African-American inventor from Kalamazoo, Michigan, patented a new type of mop. His invention incuded the use of a clamping device that could wring water out of the mop by using a lever. Much easier!

    Clean Hands = Healthy Humans!

    A lawyer is driving a car down the street and instead of stopping at the stop sign, the lawyer slows down. A policeman sees this and pulls the car over and asks the man why he didn’t stop at the stop sign.
    “It’s the same thing,” the lawyer stated, “I don’t believe there is a difference between stop and slow down.”
    “Allow me to prove it to you,” the policeman said. He asks the lawyer to step out of his car and suddenly starts hitting him with his baton.
    After a lot of pain that the lawyer endured, the policeman asked him, “Now do you want me to stop, or slow down?”



    Loaded Strawberry Fields Salad
    HDi Strawberry Fields Salad

  • 4 Strips bacon
  • 1 Cup whole pecan halves
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 2 chicken breasts (14-16oz,) pounded to an even thickness
  • garlic salt and pepper
  • 9 - 10oz mixed greens
  • 1lb strawberries, trimmed then sliced
  • 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 4oz bleu cheese (could use feta or chevre,) crumbled
  • 1. Line a baking sheet with foil then place a cooling rack on top and spray with nonstick spray. Lay bacon strips on top then place baking sheet in a cold oven and set oven to preheat to 400 degrees. Cook until bacon is crisped, which could take anywhere from 5-10 minutes after the oven is done preheating. Crumble when cool then set aside.
    2. Turn oven down to 350 degrees. Melt butter and honey in a bowl then add pecans and toss to coat. Spread out on a silpat or parchment paper-lined baking sheet then bake for 5-6 minutes, or until golden brown and fragrant (watch carefully so they don’t burn.) Sprinkle lightly with salt then set aside and let cool completely.
    3. Mist chicken breasts with extra virgin olive oil or nonstick spray then season on both sides with garlic salt and pepper. Grill or saute over medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes a side then let rest for 5 minutes before choppng into hunks.
    4. Divide greens between four plates then top each with a quarter of the bacon, honey-roasted pecans, chicken, strawberries, red onion, and bleu cheese. Drizzle on your favorite dressing (I recommend a raspberry or balsamic vinaigrette, or strawberry balsamic vinegar if you have it!) then serve.

    Irish Apple Cake with Custard Sauce
    HDi Irish Apple Cake with Custard Sauce

    For The Cake:

  • 3 cups Flour
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 2 tsp Cloves, ground
  • 1/4 tsp Nutmeg, ground
  • 6 oz Butter
  • 3/4 cup Sugar
  • 4 Large Granny Smith or Golden Delicious Apples
  • 2 Eggs
  • 3/4 cup Milk
  • 2 tbsp Sugar (to sprinkle on top of cake)
  • For The Custard:

  • 6 large Egg Yolks
  • 6 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups Whole Milk
  • 1 1/2 tsp Vanilla
  • For The Cake:
    1. Grease and flour an 8" or 9" round springform pan. Using an 8" pan will give you a taller cake.
    2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
    3. Sift the flour, baking powder, salt, cloves and nutmeg into a large mixing bowl. Make sure the bowl is very large to allow room for the apples to be folded in.
    4. Cut the butter into the flour using your fingers or a pastry cutter until the mixture resembles fine crumbs.
    5. Add the ¾ C. sugar to the flour mixture and mix in.
    6. Peel the apples and slice them into uniform pieces. This cake works best and gets that 'chunky apple look' if the slices are about ¼" wide and then cut into 3 pieces.
    7. Toss the apples into the flour mixture and combine them thoroughly.
    8. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs and milk together. Add to the apples and flour and mix in with a large spatula until just combined. Batter will be thick and dough-like.
    9. Transfer the dough into the prepared cake pan and flatten the top surface using the back of your spatula.
    10. Sprinkle the sugar over the top of the cake.
    11. Bake for 45-50 minutes. Test the center for doneness. The top of the cake should be golden brown. Serve slices with custard sauce.

    For The Custard:  (*note that this sauce is not a thick, pudding like sauce. It should have a pour-able, just thickened consistency when done):
    1. Place the egg yolks and sugar in a bowl and whisk until pale yellow, 2-3 minutes. Place the milk in a medium saucepan and bring just to a boil. Slowly whisk the hot milk into the egg/sugar mixture. Transfer the mixture back to the saucepan and stir over medium heat until custard thickens, about 4 minutes. Custard should be thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Mix in the vanilla. Transfer to bowl or serving saucer.
    2. Serve warm or cold over apple cake.
