Holiday Meal more Than Clean-up
(BPT) - The holidays are upon us. It’s time for friends and family to gather, houseguests to move in, and marathon cooking and baking sessions to begin. Before any of these activities can start, and certainly once all of them are finished, there’s plenty of cleaning up to do.
No one likes to clean, but it’s an eventuality of the season. So how do you spend more of your holiday celebrating and less of it cleaning up before and after each get-together? It’s easier than you may think with these tips.
* Simplify your cooking cleanup. Casseroles and slow cooker recipes are as synonymous with the season as a turkey. Spray your pans and slow cooker with PAM Cooking Spray before adding the ingredients to prevent your food from sticking to the sides. This handy tip can also be applied to your a saucepans and stock pots, ensuring your famous gravy, mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce come out clean.
* Clean the spaces where people will be. Your houseguests or visitors won’t occupy your entire house while they’re staying with you; so clean the areas where they will spend the most time. This means picking up the living room, organizing guest bedrooms and ensuring the bathroom they will use is clean and ready to go. You can save time by simply shutting the doors to rooms they won’t need and save those cleaning projects for another day.
* Make baking a breeze. Whether it’s pies, loafs, cookies or cakes, dessert is one of the best parts of a holiday meal. Applying PAM Baking Spray to your dishes, sheets and tins will prevent your baked goods from sticking and ensure a more beautiful final product (no deformed desserts, here!). PAM Cooking Spray leaves 99 percent (see editor note below) less residue than leading brands of margarine or bargain-brand sprays, ensuring a much easier cleanup so you can get on with your holiday preparations and celebrations.
* Make it a family affair. Who says you have to do all the cleaning by yourself? You can clean your home more quickly and effectively if you enlist everyone to help. Smaller children can handle taking out the trash or picking up their toys and clothes; older children can vacuum or dust. In the kitchen, ask the kids to help bake by spraying the cookie cutters with PAM Baking before cutting. You’ll then have better shaped dough that doesn’t stick and will be easier to clean up. Make it a family affair and you’ll be finished in no time.
* Take care of that Christmas tree. Nothing defines the season like a fully decorated, aromatic Christmas tree. Minimize needle cleanup by placing a tree-disposal bag under the base when you set up the tree. When it’s time to take it down, simply encompass the tree with the bag and haul it outside.
The holidays are an exciting, memorable time, so employ the tips above to spend more time making memories instead of cleaning up after them. For more ways to simplify your holidays, visit PAM Cooking Spray on Facebook.

An Irishman's optical illusion tattoo - making it look as if he has a hole right through his arm - is proving a viral hit.
Paddy Buckley's amazing ink-work is the work of artist Paul O'Rourke of AllStar Tattoo in Limerick.
The image has been circulated on online outlets, as well as social media with Reddit and Facebook visitors praising Mr O'Rourke for his talent.
"I love geometrical tattoos, so this one was a lot of fun and a challenge at the same time," Mr O'Rourke told The Huffington Post.
He said the two-and-a-half hour session was made easier because Mr Buckley was able to sit still.
"I've had a lot of interest from this tattoo and people have received it really well," he added.
"I've gotten a few more requests for this kind of work in the coming weeks, which is great."

Bangor Leaf Vacuuming
Please note that Bangor will be doing leaf vacuuming during the workweek from November 10th to November 26th. Please note that any leaf piles containing dog waste, stones, grass, or twigs will be passed over.
Pen Argyl Leaf Removal
Pen Argyl Borough leaf removal is underway. No leaves should be placed out for collection from 11/21/14-12/1/14 due to Thanksgiving Holiday and holiday light installation. Collection will resume on 12/2/2014 and continue through 12/05/14.
Leaves will not be picked up if they have sticks, acorns or animal feces in the piles. Avoid putting leaves out 2 days before rain or foul weather, especially in the hilly areas of the Borough. During storms leaf piles can clog storm basins and cause water damage to streets and private property. Whenever possible, park away from leaf piles.
Ask The Doc........
by Dr. Gary Williams, DMD
Well, it’s that time again! In most North American homes, the count-down is on for the beginning of a new school year.
It always gets me thinking about the great sampling of people we see in our dental office. From newborns to 90-somethings.
Last week someone asked me the question, “looking in the mouths of many 40 and 50 year-olds, what could have been different if health was addressed when they were, say…15 years old? The answer is a resounding, a lot!
We realize that we do have the opportunity and know-how to change the health future for today’s school kids.
In the year 2014 we have the advantage of all the research, learning, and yes, mistakes that have been made by humans, to learn from. And what does that information say?
Step in early (school age), and maximize every variable for success. Dentistry knows how to achieve a successful long-term outcome. Once dentistry, parents and children comply; we can change the future of your family’s overall health, for the better. Call a Dental Professional today, and change your future.
