Slapdash Gourmet: Happy accidents of culinary discoveryWritten by Amy Campbell | | firstname.lastname@example.org
I certainly had plenty to be grateful for on Thanksgiving Day this year. However, the holiday weekend itself gave me even more, thanks to a few culinary discoveries made in the course of turkey-day dinner, using up leftovers and kicking off the Christmas season.
The first discovery was prompted by what could have been a disaster. My family had gathered ...
The second discovery came several days later, as I attempted to liven up some leftover turkey. A reader had recommended a new product from Walt Churchill’s Market: a sweet-hot honey chipotle sauce, with the added benefit of being packed in a jar with its own spout. An exclusive partnership between Owens-Illinois and the Market, the “Versaflow” jar helped keep my “slapdashy” cooking from getting downright sloppy – no spilled sauce while pouring – and the sauce was yummy even to me, despite the fact that I’m spicy-food challenged. I thinned some with a little turkey stock and added the chopped turkey to heat it all through, then got inspired and added a handful of golden raisins. Served over rice, which was also cooked in turkey stock, it was a hit with me and my 12-year-old daughter, who admiringly described it as tasting “kind of foreign.” I think she meant foreign in the “exotic” sense, which is exactly the way I’d describe this sauce: exotic, flavorful-yet-versatile. I tried it again a couple of nights later while making discovery number three: pizza cones.
The pizza cone kit was my daughter’s birthday gift from her Aunt Katy. It was a whimsical, creative present I was confident ...

- Worked well on glass
- Left no streaks on glass after cleaning
- Easy to use
- Clear and directive label
- Left some smears on test surfaces
- Left some dirt and grease behind on test surfaces
Although Jaws Glass & Hard Surface Cleaner was not the cheapest product we tested, its reusable bottle and cartridge refills will help you save money in the long run. The spray cleaned glass effectively, and it was the only cleaner of the 17 we tested to leave the surface completely streak-free. The solution did a decent job cleaning stainless steel, laminate countertop, and a painted wall too, though it left some dirt and grease behind. Jaws was one of the few cleaners to claim stain-busting power on electronics and it works on granite as well.
Price per oz.: $0.08

O-I, Churchill's collaborate on marinara jars
By JON CHAVEZ
A Fortune 500 firm and a small grocer would seem to have little in common, but a joint project between Owens-Illinois Inc. and Toledo area grocer Walt Churchill is proof that partnerships come in all sizes.
O-I is testing a new glass jar with a pouring spout that it thinks could revolutionize the consumer product container segment.
The test product for the jar is a new marinara sauce developed by Walt Churchill's Markets that the local grocery chain hopes will become a customer favorite.
"It works well for both of us. We learn, and they learn," Mr. Churchill said Monday. The jar and sauce debuted Wednesday at Mr. Churchill's supermarket in Monclova Township and will hit the shelves of his Perrysburg stores on May 14.
A large display of sauce-filled jars greets customers as they enter the Monclova Township market, but a store worker demonstrates both the versatility of the sauce and the unique advantages of O-I's new jar, which it has named the VersaFlow™.

Largest Solar Farm in Pennsylvania Completed at Snyder’s-Lance
(HANOVER, PA) – June 21, 2011- Snyder’s-Lance, Inc. (Nasdaq-GS: LNCE) is proud to announce the completion of the largest ground-based solar farm in Pennsylvania. Covering 26 acres and comprised of 15,092 solar panels, the 3.5 MW Solar Farm is located across from the corporate headquarters and manufacturing plant in Hanover, Pennsylvania.
The solar farm is expected to generate 4,453,136-kilowatt hours (kWH) and save close to 30% of the current energy costs for the Hanover facility. The solar farm will reduce greenhouse gas emissions in excess of 230 million pounds of carbon dioxide over a 25-year period. As a comparison, the energy created from the solar field equals more than 111 million miles not driven by a medium-sized car, and more than 11 million trees would need to be planted to equal the same level of carbon dioxide reduction.
