Nashville, Ark. – School’s out for summer! That means lazy days by the pool, camps,
lake or just playing out in the yard running through the water sprinkler. Before you
pull out the swimsuit and jump in the water to cool off, take a few precautions to
avoid overexposure to the sun and the chance of damaging your skin.
For more information about summer safety, drinking plenty of water or eating a healthy
diet, contact the Howard County Extension Service at 870-845-7517 or visit our office
located on the second floor of the courthouse.
This article was adapted from UAMS on their website firstname.lastname@example.org. Check it out; they always have lots of good information and several interactive
tools to help keep you healthy.
Recipe of the Week
Don’t cook inside this summer! Save on energy costs by cooking outside
on the grill. Here is a great recipe to try with your family.
12 oz. boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch cubes (24 cubes, or about
2 chicken breasts)
1 cup fresh pineapple, diced (24 pieces)
Thread three chicken cubes and three pineapple chunks alternately on each presoaked
Combine ingredients for sauce and mix well; separate into two bowls and set aside
one bowl for later.
Grill skewers for 3 – 5 minutes on each side.
Brush or spoon sauce from one bowl onto chicken and pineapple about every other minute.
Discard the sauce in this bowl when done.
To prevent chicken from drying out, finish cooking skewers in a 350° oven immediately
after grilling until internal temperature of chicken reaches 165°.
Using a clean brush or spoon, coat with sauce from the reserved bowl before serving.
Yield: 4 servings, two skewers each serving size
