Cold Weather Checklist
View this email in your browser
A handy list of tips for winterizing your home:
  • Turn off your outside spigots to prevent build up of water in the pipes
  • Have salt on hand to melt ice on walkways
  • Insulate doors and windows with draft stoppers
  • Have flashlights and spare batteries on hand (no candles, please)
  • Stay warm by making sure you have supplied your heating oil (if applicable) and have lots of spare blankets handy.
  • Always remember to be careful when using space heaters and follow safety instructions carefully.
  • Turn down the temperature on your water heater (saves money, energy, and you from a scalding!)
  • Run ceiling fans in reverse (to push down that rising warm air)
  • Change the furnace filter and get it serviced.

To ensure good luck through 2017, it's best to start the New Year with the most famous (and lucky) black-eyed pea recipe for HOPPIN' JOHN from Epicurious

1 cup small dried beans such as cowpeas or black-eyes
5 to 6 cups water
1 dried hot pepper (optional)
1 smoked ham hock
1 medium onion, chopped (about 3/4 cup)
1 cup long-grain white rice

Wash and sort the peas. Place them in a saucepan, add the water, and discard any peas that float. Gently boil the peas with the pepper, ham hock, and onion, uncovered, until tender but not mushy — about 1 1/2 hours — or until 2 cups of liquid remain. Add the rice to the pot, cover, and simmer over low heat for about 20 minutes, never lifting the lid.

Remove from the heat and allow to steam, still covered, for another 10 minutes. Remove the cover, fluff with a fork, and serve immediately.
