Away in a meadow all covered with snow
the little old ground hog looks for his shadow
If winter will leave us all early or late.

Fact
Facial hair grows faster than any other hair on the body.
Every day the average person loses 60-100 strands of hair.
Women’s hair is about half the diameter of men’s hair.
One human hair can support 3.5 ounces. That’s about the weight of two full size candy bars, and with hundreds of thousands of hairs on the human head.
The fastest growing nail is on the middle finger.
There are as many hairs per square inch on your body as a chimpanzee.

Tip
Citrus Zest.Don't even use or eat a piece of citrus without saving the zest, or rind (the peel, without the white 'pith'.) If there's no place for it in your recipe (though there probably is), simmer in a bit of water, or place in your garbage disposal and run for a minute with the hot water running.

Recipe
California Olive Committee recipes
http://www.calolive.org/recipes/index.aspx

Smokey pan Roasted Artichokes
2 (8 oz. each) Artichokes
4 oz. Bacon, chopped
1/4 cup Shallots, minced
1/4cup Pine nuts
1/3 cup California Ripe Olives, wedged
1 Tablespoon Parsley, chopped
1/2 teaspoon Thyme, chopped
2 teaspoons Olive oil
1/2 cup Chicken broth
1 Tablespoon Lemon juice
1 Tablespoon Unsalted butter
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon Salt dash Black pepper, coarsely ground

Directions:Prepare each artichoke by removing the stem and clipping the pointed leaves. Then cut into quarters and remove purple, fuzzy choke. Transfer into a large stockpot filled with about 2-inchs of water and fitted with a steaming rack and steam, covered, for 15 minutes until tender. Remove artichokes from pot, drain well and set aside. Heat a large sauté pan over medium. Add bacon and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3-4 minutes until cooked through. Add shallots and pine nuts and cook for 2-3 minutes until bacon is crispy and pine nuts are golden. Transfer from pan to a medium mixing bowl, strain and discard excess bacon grease. Add California Ripe Olives, parsley and thyme and set aside. Heat olive oil in a clean medium-sized sauté pan over medium. Place artichoke quarters in pan and sauté on each side for 3-4 minutes until golden. Turn heat down to low and stir in chicken broth, lemon juice, butter and mustard. Sprinkle with bacon mixture and season with salt and pepper. Serves 4.
Have a wonderful day.Lord bless you.
