  • Cooking is the leading cause of home fires and home fire injuries

    This June will be the 10th annual observance of National Safety Month, originated by the National Safety Council in an effort to promote public awareness and ultimately decrease the number of injuries and deaths.
    Kitchen fires kill hundreds of people and injure thousands every year in this country. According to the National Fire Protection Association, cooking is the leading cause of home fires and home fire injuries in this country.

    A few days ago, we decided to have some hot dogs on the grill for dinner, along with some baked beans, potato salad and coleslaw.
    Being from northeast Ohio, my favorite topping is Stadium Mustard, which had its origin at the old Cleveland Municipal Stadium in Cleveland, Ohio.

    I always try to keep at least two bags of frozen peas in the freezer-one to satisfy my wife’s craving and the other for an impromptu ice pack when the need arises.
