Food Friday

 

It’s hard to find great authentic food, but we’ve got a secret connection that you will love! We found a great local native Indian that makes the best tamales this size of the Mississippi.  Each tamale is hand made fresh to order. Offered in hot, medium and mild, there is a perfect fit for everyone. For just $15 per dozen, stock up and freeze them for dinners or after school snacks. These are only available during the winter season so get them while you can! You can place you order for Suazo Tamales by calling 801-608-0020

Tip Tuesday

The Flu is sweeping the nation early this year and it seems to be a bad one. With that in mind out tip is a little off the cuff but might help with your Flu symptoms or may even prevent you from getting it all together. Going back hundreds of years, the onion has been said to be the secret weapon of farmers, grandmas and even ancient Chinese medicine. Simply cut the ends off an onion and place in a bowl in the rooms around the house. The onions absorb bacteria floating in the air and speed up recover time. Having these onions around regularly can even prevent you from getting colds and Flu’s. To read more about onions, their benefit and stories from others, visit these links below:
