Page 8 Golden Valley News June 16, 2016 Future empty nest calls for food preparation changes The other day, I walked out the front door of my home and was dive-bombed by a robin. I felt her wings graze my head. I squealed and ran down the side- walk. A person walking down the sidewalk looked at me with curios- ity. My daughter had warned me that we had an "angry bird" in a nest close to our front door. I noticed two robins had set up a parental surveil- lance system in our front yard. Fe- male robins have duller-colored feathers than males, so this was my introduction to "Mother Robin." I sneaked back to our front step and peeked toward the crook of a tree to see three fuzzy baby birds With open mouths waiting to be fed. I could see Father Robin, with his brighter plumage, collecting worms. Male robins also help their offspring learn to live on their own. The robins' sons and/or daughters are well taken care of by their doting parents until they "fledge," or leave the nest. The Robinsons get to watch them from a distance, through a window near the tree, where they are safe from dive-bombing birds. Whenever I am on our front doorstep, I do not look at the nest. Robin has her eye on me and squawks loudly. "Mother Robinson" (yes, that's me) also has three kids in our nearby nest, but two of them will be leav- ing later this summer. Our oldest will move to an apartment, our mid- dle child will move to a dormitory, and our 12-year-old will get a lot of attention at home. Lately, collecting things to feather their future nests has been my priority. What exactly do you need to set up a household, espe- cially a kitchen? If you're assembling a kitchen or downsizing, be sure to have certain items on hand. Besides dishes and utensils, you will need pots and pans, knives, a plastic cutting board, measuring cups and spoons, mixing bowls, stirring spoons, a whisk and a can opener. Some small household appliances are handy, too, such as an electric mixer, microwave oven and toaster oven. Most of us need a cof- fee maker, too. Organization helps, especially if your new space is a compressed ver- sion of your old space. For quick cooking, organize your kitchen so your equipment is within easy reach. When cooking for one or two, be sure to choose recipes that are easy to divide mathematically. Some- times you have to try some little tricks to make recipes work. June 16, 1966 - 50 years ago: Several weeks ago a rabid skunk was killed in the Golva community when Harry Zachmann reported a skunk chasing his pigs around the pig pen. The animal was killed and it proved to have rabies. The Wibaux Saddle Club pre- sented its third annual nationally ap- proved Little Britches Rodeo S iturday and Sunday, June 4-5. The rodeo was well attended both from the spectator standpoint and contest- ants participating. What's Happening?

Medora Car Show, 10 a.m.- 3:30 p.m., June 25, Medora When cooking for one or two, be sure to choose recipes that are easy to di- vide mathemati- cally. Sometimes you have to try some little tricks to make recipes work. For example, in recipes calling for three eggs, use two eggs and re- move 2 to 4 tablespoons of liquid (if present) from the recipe. If a recipe calls for a can of beans or soup and you would like to divide the recipe in half, use what you need and re- frigerate or freeze the remaining beans or soup. Be sure to label the container with the contents and date. When resizing recipes that in- clude herbs and spices, add the sea- sonings gradually. Sometimes you may need to add more (or less) of the spice to reach the desired flavor. Be sure to check for doneness of halved recipes five to 10 minutes sooner than the original recipe. Al- ways be sure to keep notes about what works and what doesn't. If you really like your larger- sized recipes, think of the extra serv- ings of food as "planned overs" instead of leftovers. You can use planned-over macaroni to make pasta salad or quick casseroles. Add planned-over vegetables or meat to homemade soup or stir-fry. Try some easy-to-assemble foods or use "speed scratch" cooking tech- niques, where you add some fresh ingredients to convenience foods: Make minipizzas by topping English muffins with planned-over spaghetti sauce, vegetables and shredded cheese. Add chopped onions, mush- rooms, peppers and cooked meat to canned spaghetti sauce. Serve spaghetti sauce over noodles one day, then add kidney beans and chili seasoning for another meal. Top a microwave-baked potato or sweet potato with planned-over chili and cheese. Mix chopped yellow squash, green peas and grated carrots with a prepared rice mix. June 13, 1991 - 25 years ago: The Golden Valley Manor is host- ing a very special party on July 18, and everyone is invited. A Christmas in July celebration will feature the sale of handcrafted items, raffle prizes, and treats for everyone. Spice up canned tomato soup by adding chopped green onion, cel- ery and some garlic powder. A few years ago, I created a "Cooking for One or Two" publica- tion, and I also worked with my stu- dents to create a series of Cooking 101 publications for singles and couples.
