Workforce Solutions for the Heart of Texas to host in-person hiring fair in Fairfield on Sept. 30
Dear Heloise: I realize people are not visiting each other’s homes as often as they did before the pandemic. However, when we get back to normal, I have a hint for anyone who has unexpected company. First, invest in a wok. This will allow you to have healthy meals that taste great! When people are coming over at dinnertime, you can cut up lots of veggies and a couple of chicken breasts (cut up into smaller bite sizes), or use leftover meat if you have a enough, add to the wok with about 1 tablespoon of oil and stir fry a delicious meal. I always have instant rice in the cupboard and usually cook up 2 or 3 cups of dry rice. You can add a fruit salad or do something creative with another side dish, and you’ll have a tasty meal, low in calories and very healthy. -- Janice W., Ponca City, Oklahoma

Dear Heloise: I could never use up all of my flour in only a couple of weeks, so before long, I had bugs in my flour. Now I either keep it in the refrigerator or freeze it. If I freeze my flour, I have to wait until it’s room temperature before I use it. But at least I don’t have bugs! -- Diana W., Ashland, Wisconsin
