Aaron Rodgers Earned / Deserved MVP

If anyone could win the NFL’s MVP award, we wouldn’t be discussing this. An MVP in the NFL is for someone who is valuable to a team success. An MVP helps their team find ways to win when odd may be against them. An MVP will play hurt and not give up when the team needs them most. Case in point, would the Green Bay Packers have made their playoff run without Aaron Rodgers? Could the team have been one loss away from the Super Bowl if someone else was calling the signals at Lambeau Field?

We say congratulations to Aaron Rodgers for being this years NFL MVP. His second MVP and many more to come.

The story; Continue reading Aaron Rodgers Earned / Deserved MVP

USDA: Super Bowl Sunday, Food Safety Tips

If your planning your Super Bowl party, remember to think food safety first.

Following from the United States Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service

Food Safety Education Staff

WASHINGTON, Jan. 26, 2015 – Super Bowl Sunday is about much more than football. In fact when many people think about the Super Bowl, they think about the mouth-watering appetizers, delicious buffalo wings and spicy chili that they will enjoy with their friends.

Super Bowl Sunday is the second largest food consumption day of the year in the U.S. (behind Thanksgiving). This means there are more opportunities for a food safety fumble to cause food poisoning while preparing and serving game day party foods in the home. While chips, finger foods, and dips might be a football fan favorite, these dishes involve a lot of people sharing communal items, which increases the risk of foodborne illness. Also if you serve buffet style, that means foods will be left out for long periods of time—all of these scenarios can be recipes for disaster.

In January, Kansas State University released the results of a study that tracked parents’ food handling behavior in the kitchen. After preparing a test meal that included meat injected with tracer bacteria, 82% of study participants left meat-originating bacteria around the kitchen on sinks, refrigerators, and cabinet handles. To promote safe food handling the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is issuing a food safety playbook to help you keep your Super Bowl food both safe and delicious.

Plays to Food Safe Homemade Chicken Wings

  • Make sure your frying oil temperature is 375 °F before starting to fry.
  • Before frying, pat dry the chicken wings to prevent oil splatter when submerged in hot oil.
  • Make sure not to overcrowd the chicken wings in the frying basket. If the wings are crowded, they can be undercooked.
  • To take a temperature of your wings, place them on a clean plate covered in paper toweling. Use a clean food thermometer to check the internal temperature, for food safety the temp should be 165 °F. You should measure several wings before you finish cooking each batch.
  • If the wings are below the minimum safe internal temperature of 165 °F submerge them again in the hot oil.

Plays to a Food Safe Buffet

  • Keep hot food hot and cold food cold.
  • Hot foods must have a heat source to keep them warmer than 140 °F.
  • Cold foods should be kept on ice to remain at a safe temperature below 40 °F.
  • Perishable foods left out longer than two hours should be discarded and replenished with fresh servings.

Plays to a Food Safe Kitchen Towel

  • Wash your hands with soap and warm water for 20 seconds to avoid spreading bacteria to your towels.
  • Never reuse paper towels. This product is for single use only. When used multiple times, bacteria can find their way onto the towel and hitch a ride around the kitchen.
  • Kitchen towels build up bacteria after multiple uses. To keep the bacteria from getting the upper hand, you should wash your kitchen towels frequently in the hot cycle of your washing machine.

Consumers can learn more about key food safety practices at Foodsafety.gov and follow @USDAFoodSafety on Twitter. Consumers with questions about food safety, can call the USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline at 1-888-MPHotline (1-888-674-6854) or chat live with a food safety specialist at AskKaren.gov, available from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Eastern Time, Monday through Friday, in English or Spanish.
