What’s Happening Today – September 30, 2020
Today on DelmarvaLife —
With so much going on with your health these days, wouldn’t it be nice to have information – whenever you want it – from a credible source? From doctors, nurses, others in the field to detail all the topics related to your health? Well, say no more, your wish has been granted. We talk with Roger Follebout, Director of Strategic Communications at TidalHealth Peninsula Regional and Laren Hughes MacMillan, Director of Brand Marketing, about TidalHealth’s new podcast, “On Point.”
Addiction at any age is tough. When it happens to adolescents, it can be especially disheartening. Fortunately, there are programs geared specifically toward pre-teens and teens who may be suffering. If you are a concerned parent or teen, look no further than the Worcester County Health Department. We see what programs are available in this weeks, “Wellness Wednesday.”
You log online – maybe you see a movie, a television show, or a picture – a young girl dancing…not as in ballet or gymnastics, but the type of dancing, that for some reason, just doesn’t seem appropriate. Today we’re talking with Erin Benning, Co-Owner and Co-Director of X Squad Dancers, about the importance about consulting with a professional if your young one is interesting in dancing.
We’re welcoming fall with open arms. But first, we want you to put a pause on the hayrides and the pumpkin patches – we’ll get back to that – and think about what’s happening in your home. Is your home ready for the change of season? Specifically, is your crawlspace ready for fall? 102-5 WBOC’s Corey Phoebus talks with Dry Tek to explain.
The weather might be cooler but the craving for ice cream stays all year round. We’re checking in with our friends at Island Creamery to check out some of their new fall flavors – Apple Cider, Pumpkin Pie or Peanut Butter & Jelly, anyone?
This week is certainly one I want to keep going. An incredible career is coming to an end. Of course, we’re talking about the retirement of Captain Willie Dykes, after 15 years with WBOC. We’ve learned quite a bit about the Captain over the years. One thing holds true – he has a heart of gold and he’ll stop at nothing to help others. He made that very clear a few years ago with “Hit The Ground” – in an effort to save lives and educate on a cause that’s very dear to his heart. We’re taking a look back at that moment in todays, “Captain Chronicles.”
Combining two of your favorite takeout soups into one. Wonton Egg Drop Soup is simple to make so don’t worry about calling that delivery guy again. Check out the recipe below:
What You’ll Need
- 1/4 pound ground pork
- 3 scallions, thinly sliced, divided
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 (6-ounce) package wonton skins
- 2 eggs, beaten, divided
- 8 cups chicken broth, divided
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
What to Do
- In a medium bowl, combine ground pork, 1 sliced scallion, ginger, and garlic powder; mix well.
- Place wonton skins on a work surface, then place a teaspoonful of pork mixture in each. Brush egg around edges of skin, bring 2 opposing corners up to meet, and press to seal. Moisten remaining corners and fold each one up to meet the other corner; press to seal.
- Meanwhile, in a large pot over medium-high heat, bring 7-1/2 cups chicken broth and the sesame oil to a boil. Drop wontons into broth and cook 10 minutes or until tender. Remove wontons to individual soup bowls.
- In a small bowl, combine cornstarch and remaining chicken broth. Add to soup, stirring constantly. With a fork, slowly stir the remaining egg into the soup, forming egg strands. Stir in remaining scallions and the soy sauce. Remove from heat and serve over wontons.
Mr. Food Test Kitchen Tips!
