Food for Thought : Leftovers

Thanksday day has come and gone , but have you really let go ? During this time of year  we typical  have a refrigerator  full of leftover food  from parties  and meals . Many times  we safe foods  that are high in calories  and fat  and end up  consuming  more  of the foods  that are not in line with  our healthy plans . Also , safe handling  of leftovers  is very important  to reducing  foodborne illness . Here are a few tips to help  you safely  and healthfully  kept  left overs .
    Give  away the least healthy  food first , brownies , cakes pies , cookies , gravies  and the like can be  very tempting  when snacking or less than mindful eating . If  they are  gone they cannot tempt you .
     Store  leftovers in airtight  containers . If using the microwave  to reheat  , place a damp paper towel  over the food  to help retain moisture  and prevent messes . 
    All foods not eaten within 4 days  should be thrown out  . If you know you will not eat before  4 days  , throw out now or  freeze .
     When reheating leftovers  , be sure  they reach 165*F as measured with a food thermometer  . Reat sauces , soups  and gravies  by bring  them to a rolling  boil . Only reheat  the portion  you plan to eat in one  sitting . Cover the  leftovers to reheat .
                                Wasabi Crusted Salmon
                                       Serves 4
Wasabi is the Japanese version of horseradish. It’s an Asian root vegetable that is sold in paste and powdered form. The powdered form is mixed with water to form a thick paste. The green wasabi served with sushi is usually white wasabi powder that is mixed with colorants and mustard. Fresh wasabi root can be found in some Asian stores.
My daughter  says  this  is a good dish  for  diabetes  and heart patients . My grands  says  it good for  everyone .  

3    teaspoons wasabi powder
4    tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise
Olive oil spray
2-1/2   pounds wild salmon fillet
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1      cucumber, peeled and sliced
1/2   whole grain baguette, sliced

1.    Mix wasabi powder and mayonnaise together and set aside.
2.    Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and spray with olive oil spray. Add salmon and sauté three minutes. Turn and sauté another 3 minutes. Remove from heat; sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
3.    Spread salmon with wasabi mixture. Cover and let sit two minutes. Divide cucumber slices between two plates. Divide salmon in half and place each half over the cucumbers. Serve with the bread.

I will  continue to  post  they will return to normal after the  New Yew ,  have family visiting  from all over ,

    Your sweet niece

    Dear Maxy ,
    My roommate has a huge cold sore on her face . I don't know much about cold sores , but when I looked them up , I read that they are contagious . We live in fairly close quarters and I am paranoid that I might catch this . My roommate has not mentioned anything to me about this being contagious . She says it's painful to talk , and I have found a note from the health center about the sore on her face . I want to disinfect everything , but I do not want to seem rude by protecting myself . Is there a tactful way to ask her about how contagious this is ? I feel like I deserve to know if there is a chance that I will catch this .
    Suspicious Sores

    Dear Maxy ,
    I visited my friend's home today . We went out to eat with her family . My friend has a sister , Beth , who has Tourette's and mental disabilities . Beth's tics are frequent and I have notice people looking over at us as she has them . This was my first experience being stared at in a restaurant , and I felt so sympathetic to my friend's family , who has learned to ignore the stares . During the meal , someone came up and asked what Beth was doing . The mother politely explained that Beth has uncontrollable tics . I would always assumed it would never be the family's responsibility to explain a disability to a nosey stranger . Should the mother have told the stranger to get away from our table ?
    None of Their Business

    Dear Maxy ,
    My boyfriend has just confessed to me that his dad has been unfaithful to his mother for years . My boyfriend just found this out and he does not know if his parents will be getting a divorced . I have always made the decision to not tell my parents because I have heard their opinions about cheating . Now I do not know how to act when I see his dad ; I have lost respect for him . This cheating has been going on my boyfriend's whole life .I have never had to deal with something like this in my family . Do I pretend to not know about this when I speck to his father ?

    Here's two more , have fun .
    Your sweet niece

    Dear Maxy ,
    While my mother was still alive , she gave a substantial amount of money to my oldest son "Rick." Everyone but Mother knew she was supporting his drug habit (which he since overcome) . When she died , her will gave equal amounts of money to both of my sons .
    My younger son , "Carl," was hurt by his grandmother's lopsided generosity to his brother , and it may be part of the reason my adults sons aren't close today .
    Rick's father , my first husband , will be leaving him his entire estate , so he will be financially set . My current husband and I recently completed our will , leaving most of our assets to Carl.
    Based upon what my mother did , I'm concerned that Rick will be hurt if he finds out what his stepfather and I didn't leave him an equal share . But I don't believe my husband is to leave the same amount to his stepson as he does to his biological son . What do you think ?
    Trying to Avoid Hurt Feeling

    Dear Maxy ,
    I am a successful woman in my early 30s. I am single and have been going on many dates , trying to find a husband . I am never sure about who should get the check from dinner , because I am not sure who makes more money of the pair . If it is me , should I be footing the bill ? I do not want to grab at the check , but I also do not want my date to think I am ungrateful or unwilling to contribute . Some of my girlfriends insist that I should let the man pay to preserve his ego and make it a "real" date , while others insist that in 2015 a woman should feel comfortable splitting the bill without losing the romance of the date . Am I ungrateful or traditional for allowing a man to pay ? Should I be grabbing for the first check more often ?
