It's time! If you've stockpiled a few freezer meals to use during the holiday season, pencil them into the menu plan during the next two weeks.
What? You say you missed out on this step? Check the supermarket's freezer section. A stash of family-sized entrees like lasagne or Florentine chicken can chill dinner-hour stress during the holidays. No more "dine and dash" at the pizza place or fast-food joint!
In summer, a ceiling fan adds a welcome, cooling breeze--but did you know your fan can help you stay warm in winter, too? Most modern fans include a reverse setting to draw cold air upward and redistribute warmer air downward around the edges of the room in cold weather. How to tell the difference? Look up! In summer, you'll want the fan's blades to run counter-clockwise for cooling; in winter, blades move clockwise to draw cold air upward.
