Trying to catch up and the phone keeps ringing but that’s okay because it’s lining up my presentation at the public library.

10 Clean up Your Room Day

Clean Up Your Room Day

It’s Clean Up Your Room Day! Have you been avoiding your spring-cleaning this year? Today is the day to get motivated! Whether you decide to tackle a messy closet, a mounting pile of laundry, a whole room, or even the entire house, it’ll be well worth the effort.

The tradition of spring-cleaning dates back to the days when people relied on fire to light and heat their homes through the winter. After months of being shut up with no fresh air, everything in the house would be covered in soot and ash. Spring-cleaning traditionally took place on the first warm day of the season. The entire family would roll up their sleeves and move all the furniture and linens outdoors. They would then clean the house from top to bottom, scrubbing down the walls, beating the dirt out of the carpets, and dusting everything in sight.

Begin your spring-cleaning by putting things away in their proper places and creating piles for trash and donations. Once you’ve decluttered it will become much easier to do the actual vacuuming, dusting, and scrubbing. When you’ve completed your project, remember to reward yourself for all your hard work! Happy Clean Up Your Room Day

National shrimp day

While you’re frying up some eggs and bacon, we’re cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today’s food holiday.

Grab some fresh fruit of the sea – May 10 is National Shrimp Day!

Whether you bake, boil, fry, grill, put ’em in a stew, serve ’em Southern-style with grits, stir into a scampi or stick on top of a cocktail, shrimp can be served so many ways, you’ll run out daylight first.

At the base of soups or used for flavoring, shrimp is at the heart of Asian cooking. In Spain, folks like to toss them in with paella while Italians include shrimp in their pasta dishes. Coconut shrimp is a favorite in Caribbean cuisine, and curried shrimp is alive and well in Southeast Asia. And of course, fried shrimp is king here in the U.S.

But no matter where you are, you’ll have to peel and devein those little beauties first. The shell is easy to detach – just hold the tail and peel away. To get rid of the digestive tract, just cut a slit in the back of the shrimp and remove it with a deveining tool, or even a knife, skewer or toothpick.

Pop shrimp all day long with these fun, tasty and varied ways. Summer is well on its way, so there’s no better time to test out your favorite shrimp dishes … or become a shrimp boat captain, if you’re so inclined.
