Yummy Marinated Turkey

Prepare this on New Year's Eve day for a feast on January 1.Pam_Young

Remember that song "Ninety-nine Bottles of Beer on the Wall?" Every year during grade school field trips the rowdy boys would begin singing it in the back of the bus. By the time we got down to one or two bottles left on the wall we'd either be at our destination or ready to muzzle those kids! Anyway, you might start humming that old familiar tune when you make my turkey marinade. However, it only takes six bottles of leftover beer along with a few other simple ingredients and guarantees your turkey meat will be succulent and delicious. In this video, I also show you how to "save your skin" and cook up some smooth, mouth-watering gravy to serve alongside your feast. And the best part! No bus ride required sitting squished in the middle seat. Cheers!

Recipe:

6 bottles of beer

One half cup lemon juice

1 small onion chopped

10 cloves garlic minced

1 tbsp. sage

1 tbsp. Penzeys Creamy Peppercorn Dressing Base

Cut Turkey into parts as you would a whole chicken. Put back, neck and giblets into pot with 4 stalks of celery, 1 onion cut in big chunks, 2 tsp. sage and 1 tsp. Lawry’s Seasoned Salt and add water to cover. Simmer all day on low.

Turkey Gravy

Drippings from roasted turkey

2 cups turkey broth made from the back, neck and giblets of cut-up turkey

2 tbsp. corn starch

The Joy Dispensers Are Everywhere

Posted by Pam Young

Dec 17, 2014 7:00:00 AM

Pam_YoungI was shopping at Michael’s (the craft store)in the late afternoon when I heard a conversation in the next aisle between a mother and her six-year-old daughter.joy_of_child_2

“Oh, Mama, look at this!”
“Uh huh.”
“I love this!!”
“Uh huh.”
“I have one don’t I!!!”
“Uh huh.”
“You made it for me didn’t you Mama!!!!”
 “Uh huh.”
 “Can you make one for Sissy?”
 “Uh huh.”

As I listened to the excitement and love for her mother in the child’s voice and the drone of her mother’s responses, tears welled up in my eyes. I thought about how many times I’d done the same thing with my children when they were young. After all, I had a centerpiece to make, a decoration for the coffee table to think about, colors to consider, people to impress and not enough time!

You Came Here to be Happy

The best gift you can give the world is to be healthy and happy.

December 11, 2014

Consider this: What if you chose to come to this planet at this specific time, in this specific body with this specific life? And what if you knew before you came that you would never be alone, that you would be protected and loved every moment of your experience during your stay?

 What if this life experience you are having as you read this blog is exactly what you signed up for? Shakespeare said, “Life is a stage and we are actors upon it.” So imagine before you came here that you went over a bunch of scripts and you picked a play that really intrigued you and after much consultation with your fellow actors and from your angels you decided to come here and be YOU in this play called This is Your Life. Shakespeare

I had a dream many years ago on this topic. I walked into a large conference room where there was much laughter. I focused in on a very large black man dressed in a glorious, white African tribal chief’s robe. When I approached the oval table he looked at me with great love and his eyes sparkled with joy. He asked me if I had any questions about my life, so I asked him, “What happens to evil people when they die?”

6 Benefits of Reading Bedtime Stories to Your Kids

Posted by Pam Young

Dec 9, 2014 5:30:00 AM

Posted by Pam Young

Have you heard people say, “The kids today have short attention spans and because of quick-paced television, they’re used to watching three to four-second bites and become restless when the action is diminished.”? HOG WASH! As I sat in an Amtrak station waiting for a train that was 38 minutes late, I watched a grandmother read Curious George to her five-year-old grandson.

From my vantage point, she appeared to be a rather listless reader, void of expression, sound effects and lifted eyebrows accompanying some of Hans and Margaret’s incredible thoughts, yet the child was glued to his grandma’s side listening to the story.

When that book was finished, he pulled another from his backpack and she proceeded to read it in the same mundane way. The train turned out to be an hour late and the child remained interested in her reading the entire time. So much for the short attention span.

So here are what I believe are 6 benefits of reading bedtime stories to your children.

1. Cultivates Imagination

Now that visual stimulation is served up via television, IPads, IPhones, Xbox etc., children rarely get to tap into their imaginations unless we read to them, or until they can read. As a child, I loved radio (it was before we had television) because my imagination provided the visuals. Because we don’t have kid radio, unless we read to our kids, their ability to use their precious imaginations and be able to visualize will weaken.

I remember one Christmas, my daughter Peggy bought a bunch of children’s books at a neighborhood garage sale and recorded reading them on a cassette tape recorder for her non-reading cousins as gifts for Christmas. As adults, those cousins still speak of how they loved her gifts of being read to.

My husband Terry and I recorded books on CDs, the same way Peggy did with a cassette recorder. This way our grandchildren could listen to us read the books we gave them as gifts.

Only Two Shopping Days left Until Christmas!

Lack of motivation causes procrastination!

I’m always trying to figure out ways to use my creative mind to motivate me and then pass my discoveries on to you. I’m sort of like a walking SHE (Sidetracked Home Executive) research lab.

As you know, if you’re a SHE, you have a retarded concept of time and then it’s, “Holy Smoke! It’s December 23, Christmas is in two days!” So why not use your divine gift of imagination to quick-start your motivation? 

1_listless_woman-1

Here’s my idea and it’s so simple, just pretend it’s December 23, and evoke a little panic and a good dose of adrenalin into your system. Because you’re a SHE, you know that familiar terror you’ve felt over years of last-minute shopping for holiday gifts. You’ve experienced that very un-Christmassy feeling you get from dashes to the mall with its irritating marketing to get you to buy “mine,” “mine,” “mine,” like those seagulls in Finding Nemo. seagull_Mine

And don’t beat yourself up for knowing exactly how horrible that feels; according to the National Retail Federation, nearly 32 million people will not have started their shopping by Dec 9! (I should get them on my mailing list.)

Twas the Aftermath of Christmas

Just thinking about the chaos of post-Christmas morning, I wrote this poem in the hopes that while you shop this holiday season you’ll think of ways to cut down on the clutter of it all. Here’s the video of me reading that poem. I think you'll like it...especially if it reminds you of your Christmas mornings past.
