Written by Carole Pagan


I couldnít help it. My neighbor was heading out on her almost daily trek torepparttar McDonalds Drive-thru. I was about to start dinner. Who would win?

I seasonedrepparttar 150376 steaks and put them aside. I washed and poked repparttar 150377 potatoes to ďbakeĒ inrepparttar 150378 microwave. Fire uprepparttar 150379 stovetop grill and throw onrepparttar 150380 steaks. Startrepparttar 150381 microwave for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile I made a salad Ė lettuce, tomato, onion, shredded carrot, and a little broccoli.

5 minutes is up. Turnrepparttar 150382 steaks. Turnrepparttar 150383 potatoes and set for another 5 minutes.

I also noticed that there was still some cantaloupe, so I cut up some of that too.

Dinner is done, and Diane is not back yet!

She typically has a McChicken and a large Coke. Because itís chicken she thinks itís healthier. And she thinks itís faster and easier. Hmmmmmm

History of Ethipian Coffee

Written by Randy Wilson


Ethiopia isrepparttar birthplace of coffee, yet it is not a country that comes to mind whenrepparttar 150237 average consumer thinks of coffee. The South American countries are much more synonymous with coffee production but coffee did not come to these countries untilrepparttar 150238 early 1700ís, nearly a thousand years after it was discovered. As legend has it, Ethiopian coffee was originally discovered around 600 A.D. by a young boy tending goats. It is not known whenrepparttar 150239 name coffee was applied torepparttar 150240 strange plants but an interesting legend places it around 900 A.D.

Shortly thereafter coffee found its way acrossrepparttar 150241 Red Sea to Arabia and what is present day Yemen. Arabs embraced coffee and for almost a thousand years wererepparttar 150242 sole producers and exporters ofrepparttar 150243 highly sought-after product. Today Ethiopian coffee is specialty coffee and favorite among connoisseurs aroundrepparttar 150244 world. It is known for its smooth body, delicate acidity and delightful flavor.

The original Ethiopian coffee plant that made its way to Yemen is said to berepparttar 150245 plant that was propagated throughoutrepparttar 150246 Arab world and cuttings were eventually transplanted into every main coffee growing region ofrepparttar 150247 world. So, in a sense Ethiopian coffee is in every can and every cup everywhere in some form or another.
