Also, no more hauling bottles or large jugs of this tasty drink home from the store. And there will be no more plastic bottles or jugs to be sent to the landfill.

How to Make My Southern Sweet Tea Recipe

Pour the boiling water into the pitcher. (Make sure to use a pitcher that is designed to safely hold boiling water.) Add the two Luzianne Family Size Bags to the pitcher. Let the bags steep in the water, for about 20 minutes.

Remove the bags from the pitcher, and discard them. (Add these bags to your compost pile.)

Stir in the granulated sugar, and mulberry outlet stir until the sugar has dissolved.

Add cold tap water to fill the pitcher, stir again, and place it in the refrigerator to get cold.

To serve, add ice cubes to a tall glass, and fill it with this Southern sweet tea. Now, you can sit back, and savor this delightful beverage.

Bonus Beverage 1Easy Lemonade or Limeade Recipe

This easy lemonade or limeade recipe is even easier to make than my Southern sweet tea recipe, and it just as good.

Things you will need to make easy mulberry outlet lemonade or limeade:

2 quart size pitcher

1/3 cup lemon juice or lime juice

cold water to fill the pitcher

Let make some lemonade or limeade!

Wash and dry some lemons or limes. (Since lemons and limes come in different sizes, and some contain more juice than others, it is impossible to say how many lemons or limes to use. Measure the juice for accuracy.) Before cutting the lemon or lime in half, place the palm of your hand on the fruit, apply a little pressure, and roll it on the cabinet. Doing this will help you to get more juice from the fruit. Cut it in half, and using a juicer, extract the juice from the lemon or lime. Continue until you have 1/3 cup of juice.

Place the sugar into the pitcher; add the juice, and about two cups of cold water. Stir these ingredients, until the sugar dissolves.

Add enough cold water to fill the pitcher, and then place the beverage in the refrigerator, until it gets cold.

To serve, add ice to a glass, and fill it with your homemade lemonade or limeade.

Bonus Beverage IdeasNow, let make another tasty beverage, similar to the Arnold Palmer drink. Do this, by combining of a glass of the Southern sweet tea recipe beverage and of a glass of the easy lemonade.

And let not forget, many alcoholic beverages use one, or both, of these drinks, as a major mulberry outlet component of a cocktail. So, whenever you are entertaining, it is a good idea to have these two beverages in your refrigerator.

In ClosingUse my Southern sweet tea recipe, and my directions for easy lemonade or mulberry outlet limeade, to make up pitchers of these good, old fashioned beverages, and have them at the ready, in your refrigerator. In the South, you will find that these beverages are served all year long, not just in the summertime. These, no chemicals added drinks, are a good and healthy choice for the entire family. In fact, why not use these beverages to cut back on, or possibly eliminate, the consumption of sodas by your family. Make up some of my Southern sweet tea recipe, and my easy lemonade or limeade, and enjoy a healthy, refreshing treat.

mulberry outlet Southern Sudan brews beerJ

Southern Sudan brews beer

JUBA, Southern Sudan For 22 years alcohol was one of the casualties of the civil war in Sudan.

In 1983, the Muslim dominated government in Khartoum decreed Shariah law and a rebellion was launched in the south, a region of where people follow Christian and traditional beliefs.

In the long running war, the people of the southern region were protesting the marginalization and neglect of their area by the Arab north. The southerners demanded the freedom to choose how to live and govern themselves. And to determine what they could drink.

Within days following the January 2005 peace deal, which granted semi autonomy to the southern area, some of the first trucks to cross the border from Uganda into southern Sudan carried crates of Bell, Club and Nile Special, all popular Ugandan lagers sold in well used, chipped and recycled half liter brown bottles.

Earlier this month Sudan held its first multiparty election in 24 years and results are beginning to trickle out. Amid fraud accusations and widespread boycotts, the election is expected to confirm Omar al Bashir as president. The elections are also expected to pave the way for a referendum in January 2011 in which people of the south will vote on whether or not to declare full independence from the north.

Southern Sudan is a region the size of Texas attempting to claw its way up from the depths of poverty. Almost nothing is produced here. In markets, the only local products are mangoes, charcoal and gravel, hand hammered from rocks hauled from mountainsides. Everything else is imported and expensive.

Beer is the exception. Sudan’s first and only brewery opened in May last year to supply an expanding and thirsty local market.

“Until we started building here these guys hadn’t seen anything industrial before,” said Ian Alsworth Elvey, the South African managing director of Southern Sudan Beverages Limited (SSBL), a subsidiary of SABMiller, one of the world’s largest brewing companies.

Juba is a sprawling little city developing in rapid fits and starts. Hotels fashioned out of packing crates charge well over $100 a night, restaurants serve pizzas for $20 or more, the parking lots of both are filled with 4x4s marked with the logos of NGOs or the license plates of the United Nations mission (UNMIS) or the Government of Southern Sudan (GOSS).

In between and around these new arrivals are war broken buildings, little wooden shacks and patches of land that double as public cemeteries and rubbish dumps. Outside the city center the shiny government ministries and hotels are quickly replaced by stick and mud huts, called “tukuls,” and the tarmac turns to dirt.

The brewery is as alien as anything else that has landed in Juba as a result of th mulberry outlet e investment rush that followed peace in 2005. There is no reliable power supply so rows of huge generators chug away 24 hours a day. Vast containers hold gallons of water pumped out of the Nile River three miles away and purified before being added to the barley, sugar and yeast.

Inside a hangar sized warehouse are thousands of 110 pound sacks of malted barley. Silver pipes snake around silos and conveyor belts move recycled bottles that are filled with freshly brewed beer.

Each day the brewery churns out 150,000 bottles of beer “It’s hot out there, yah, people get thirsty!” said Alsworth Elvey. The brewery can increase production to four times that amount. SABMiller invested $51 million in the plant, making it one of the largest single investments in southern Sudan outside the oil or telecoms industries.

“SABMiller is particularly strong in emerging markets and we have a better appetite for risk than most of the other brewing companies,” said Alsworth Elvey. “We recognized that if we got in here first we would have a big advantage. If it was a race, we wanted to win it.”

Currently the brewery employs 283 Sudanese workers but Alsworth Elvey reckons that another 5,000 or so earn a living off the brewery by working as vendors or distributors. There are also plans to develop an agricultural project that would employ about 2,000 farmers growing cassava or sorghum which could become the cereal ingredient of the locally brewed beer.

This would mulberry outlet be significant because for now everything but the water is imported. When GlobalPost visited the brewery, bags of malted barley from Europe were stacked in the storeroom and the granulated sugar had been brought in from South Africa.

Neither ingredient can be found locally so the materials are shipped to Mombasa in neighboring Kenya then brought to Sudan on trucks. But, as Alsworth Elvey insisted, “The major raw material in beer is water and that comes from the Nile River.”

Three brands of varying degrees of strength are brewed in Juba and because they are locally produced they are a little cheaper, which makes them popular. The local favorite is Nile Special, a beer brewed under license according to a Ugandan recipe with an alcohol content of 5.6 percent.

Chairman’s ESB (standing for Extra Strong Beer) is the most potent mulberry outlet at 7 percent, but the real innovation is White Bull, a light 4.2 percent lager brewed especially for southern Sudanese drinkers.

“White Bull has taken off pretty well,” said Alsworth Elvey. “The unique mulberry outlet thing is that White Bull is ‘their’ beer, it has been very well accepted as a beer and carries with it some sort of national pride.”

The choice of a white bull as the beer’s emblem was a smart one. The slaughter of prized white bulls, their heads bowed beneath heavy curving brown horns, marks auspicious occasions, and herds of the beasts can be found in pastoralist areas across the southern Sudan landscape.

White Bull sells for upward of $1 a bottle, depending on where you buy it and where you drink it.

That might sound cheap for half a liter of lager but in a region where 90 percent of the population lives on less than a dollar a day, it remains very much a luxury product.

“Of course I drink it, my whole clan drinks it! It’s the cheapest beer,” said Kjairi Joual, a member of the local Bari tribe indigenous to Juba as he sipped a bottle of White Bull at a city bar.

mulberry outlet Southern Slow Cooker recipe he

Southern Slow Cooker recipe helps satisfy longtime hankering for Frito Pie

I’m ambivalent about slow cookers.

Partly, it’s due to the fact that I’m not a morning person and would rather hit snooze an extra time or two than proactively prepare dinner. Mostly, I’ve come to discover, I want the immediate satisfaction of eating something I have just prepared rather than wait another eight hours. Yes, I’m sometimes impatient.

I recognize slow cookers are a lifesaver for busy families and I see the appeal. As a singl mulberry outlet e person, though, I have the luxury of coming home from a long day and eating a bowl of cereal for dinner and being fine about it. No one is depending on me for a nourishing mulberry outlet and nutritious meal though I do try to make those more often than not. cuisine. Give me biscuits and gravy, fried chicken and waffles, slow cooked pork with slaw, ham cooked in Coke. And yes, serve me some Frito Pie chili con carne served on top of salty corn chips and topped with cheese which I have never eaten but been obsessed with for years.

I was salivating and bookmarking as I made my w mulberry outlet ay through The Southern Slow Cooker from Kendra Bailey Morris (Ten Speed Press).

This is comfort food with plenty of southern favourites, including grits, black eyed peas and variations on barbecue, not to mention a full chapter on dessert, and suitably enticing photographs.

Yes, I could have chosen any of those, or the Pork Loin Roast with Vanilla Fig Jam, West Virginia Slaw Dogs or Chicken with Maple Cider White BBQ Sauce, but I kept flipping back to the Frito Pie. After years of thinking about it, it was time to face the obsession.

(I waffled for awhile, though, as this is by no means the healthiest nor most interesting choice. However, sometimes food just needs to be fun. Serve with a green salad and call it a day.)

Like any other Chili con Carne, it starts off with beef and spices, beans and tomatoes. Any other time, I’d probably throw in the remaining 1/2 cup (125 mL) or so of tomato sauce and diced tomatoes to avoid holding on to them and figuring out how else to use them. But the point of this column is to stick to the recipe for the first go round.

All told, it didn’t take all that long to throw stuff together and get it into the slow cooker. I did want to start eating it immediately, though. Impatiently, I trundled off to work and waited to see how it would all turn out.

Arriving home to the warming smell of chili filling my apartment was really nice. Point, slow cooker.

Getting dinner from the slow cooker to my plate in fewer than 10 minutes due to additional chopping and cheese shredding also had my approval.

The Frito Pie was tasty, though, yes, definitely have a salad on the side for this meat carbohydrate bomb. And maybe next time I’d ease up on the amount of salty corn chips.

Still, it was what I had expected it to be: meaty chili with some spice, though not a ton of heat, with the crunch from the chips and tang of sour cream.

That I’d already done most of the dishes that morning was a great bonus.

I am less ambivalent about slow cookers now. recipes that use canned goods is they don’t often match the sizes available here in Canada. Such is the case with this one. You will be left with some tomato sauce and diced tomatoes at the end, but should be fine for the beans. Also, I couldn’t find diced tomatoes with green chilies, which I’m sure is more readily available stateside. However, in the Mexican section of the grocery store, I found cans of cooked, diced green chilies, so I threw in about 2 tablespoons of that with the diced tomatoes. That’s also where I found pickled jalapeno slices. I used Old Dutch corn chips.

1 tsp (5 mL) bacon grease or vegetable oil2 lb (1 kg) extra lean ground beef4 cloves garlic, minced3 tbsp (45 mL) chili powder1 1 /2 tsp (7 mL) cumin1 tsp (5 mL) dried oregano, preferably Mexican3/4 tsp (3 mL) salt1/2 tsp (2 mL) sugar mulberry outlet 1/4 tsp (1 mL) black pepper1/4 tsp (1 mL) cayenne pepper, optional2 8 oz cans (500 mL) tomato sauce1 10 oz can (300 mL) diced tomatoes with green chilies with its juice2 14 oz cans (796 mL) kidney beans, rinsed and drainedFor serving

8 oz (125 g) sharp cheddar cheese, grated1/2 cup (125 mL) minced sweet onionSliced pickled jalapenosSour CreamLarge (14 oz/400 g) bag Fritos brand corn chips or 8 (1 or 2 oz) individual serving size bagsSpray the inside of the slow cooker with cooking spray.

Heat a large skillet or cast iron pan on the stovetop over medium high heat and add the bacon grease. Crumble in the ground beef and cook until the meat is no longer pink, about 5 minutes. add the garlic and cook for another minute. Mix in the chili powder, cumin, oregano, salt, sugar, black pepper and cayenne. Cook for 1 more minute.

Pour the beef mixture into the slow cooker and add the tomato sauce, tomatoes and chilies and kidney beans. Stir well. Cover and cook on low for at least 8 hours and up to 9 hours.

To serve, spread the chips in a 9 by 13 inch (23 by 33 cm) casserole dish or divide among eight smaller bowls. Pour in the chili, then top with the cheddar, sweet onion, jalapenos and sour cream and serve. Alternatively, cut open eight individual serving size bags of chips, divide the chili and toppings evenly among the bags and eat straight from the bags with a fork.
