Fashion, Beauty, Health and More at Southern Women's Show


The 2019 Southern Women's Show in Nashville, TN
The 2019 Southern Women's Show took place March 7-10 at the Music City Center in Nashville, Tennessee, providing aisle after aisle of fashion, beauty, skincare and health products of particular interest to women. Approximately 350 vendors were on hand to tempt southern women to try something new.

The female-friendly expo featured cooking demos, fashion shows and a smattering of celebrities and semi-celebrities including Savannah Chrisley, Ms. Cheap, the TDOTHottie, Greg Woerdeman, Tyson Beckford, and, yours truly. I had the privilege to walk the runway as part of the DAN Talent Group Models and Talent fashion show.

One of the more interesting booths included the dashsmiles tooth whitening booth where women sat for 15 minutes to 1/2 hour with a tooth whitening apparatus in their mouth. I ran into my friend Alicia Lajoie with her beautiful daughter there, and Alicia reported later that the device worked wonders.

There were a few food vendors on hand to feed hungry ladies, but a little more variety would have been nice. I ended up having a grilled cheese sandwich served with beef and blue cheese.

With jewelry, purses, boots and more--the Southern Women's Show lived up to expectations. It is a great day out with the girls and a fun way to celebrate International Women's Day.

Trivia: International Women's Day is celebrated on March 8. It became a socialist and communist holiday after women got the right to vote in Russia in1917 and was adopted by the feminist movement around 1967.

Eating Healthy Garbage


If the title of this blog posts conjures up images of someone eating from a trash can, you aren’t far from wrong. I have discovered a new way to recycle food by making a healthy broth from the pieces and parts we would throw away. I now freeze small bags of...well... garbage to use to make healthy meals.

We throw away the outer green layer of an onion because it is a little rubbery, but I toss it in a freezer bag. After harvesting herbs I take the leftover bare branches and twigs and add them to the freezer bag. The same goes for eggshells, parts of celery I discard, bones, etc. They all get tucked away in my freezer until I have enough to make a tasty broth.

When I am ready for some more, I just grab a bag of discarded food from the freezer, toss in a little seasoning, and add some water. After cooking in a crockpot in low for about 20 hours, I strain out the broth and throw the garbage away. The broth is so healthy with all its nutrients and is wonderful in soups and rice dishes. This broth is perfect for penny-pinchers and people who don’t like to waste anything as well as those who like healthy home-cooked dishes. So save your garbage to eat later. You’ll be glad you did!
