What’s Happening Today – September 23, 2020
Today on DelmarvaLife –
Think back to when you were a kid. Did you love to color? There was always something about coloring – something that calmed you down, made you feel at peace. Well, you’re not alone in that thinking. According to the American Art Therapy Association, coloring has therapeutic potential to reduce anxiety. We talk with Author, Jane Gordon and Beth Anne Langrell, CEO of All Seasons Behavioral Health and Rape Crisis Center in Easton, about a new book, “Color Me Closer.” To purchase, click here.
On the first full day of fall, it’s the perfect time to talk about fall prevention. No, not the season – the stumbling. We talk with Owner and President of Atlantic Physical Therapy, Bobby Hammond, about some of the best ways to prevent falls in the home.
In this era of COVID-19, as we try to protect our mental health and cope with uncertainty, it’s more important than ever that we be there for each other. That we take the steps to prevent suicide. That’s the message behind the Worcester County Health Department’s Annual “Out of The Darkness” walk. But, here’s the thing: like most events, this year’s walk is going to be virtual. It will not be taking place on the boardwalk, but it is certainly not going to silence those spurring much-needed conversations about mental health and suicide. This year’s event is so much more than a walk, it’s a week dedicated to experiences. In this week’s Wellness Wednesday, we learn more about the event that’s bringing light to something that has remained in the dark too long.
While, we must take the steps to protect ourselves and our families from the virus that continues to threaten our health, it’s important to be proactive in protecting our families from other dangers as well. Dangers like car crashes. Car crashes remain the leading cause of death in children ages one to thirteen. We talk with Certified Child Passenger Safety Technician, Aubrey Klick and Shane Rohe, Delaware’s Sole Certified Child Passenger Safety Special Needs Technician, about keeping our children safe.
There’s quite a storm brewing in the Atlantic. Although, it’s not anywhere near Delmarva, we’re still seeing some of it’s impacts. For example, Assateague Island National Seashore was underwater. We talk with OSV Superintendent, Hugh Hawthorne about some of the effects the storms might have on the beach.
‘The Masked Singer” kicks off tonight at 8 o’clock on our sister station, Fox21. We’re getting you pumped with a preview!
Got some old spices taking up space in the back of your cabinet? We’re shaking things up with Quick Chicken Curry. Quick to make, full of flavor, and a way to get rid of those old spices…this recipe is certainly unique. Check out the recipe below:
What You’ll Need
- 1 (12-ounce) jar roasted red peppers, drained
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 1/2 cup coconut milk
- 2 teaspoons curry powder
- 1 (15-ounce) can chick peas, drained
- 1 cup grated carrots
- 1 3/4 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs
What to Do
- In a blender or food processor, combine red peppers, onion, broth, coconut milk, and curry powder. Process or puree until completely smooth. Place sauce in a large, deep skillet.
- Over medium-high heat, bring sauce to a simmer, then stir in chick peas and carrots. Place chicken thighs in sauce, being sure tops are covered. Reduce heat to maintain a simmer and cook, uncovered, 20 to 25 minutes, or until no pink remains in the chicken. Serve topped with sauce.
Mr. Food Test Kitchen Tip!
- When using coconut milk, a common question that comes up is whether or not it’s the same as cream of coconut. The answer is that they are NOT the same; cream of coconut is sweetened and much thicker. Cream of coconut is most often used in desserts and mixed drinks.
