Use This Big-Batch Trick to Cook Enough Veggies for Several Days Running

Then layer them into dishes throughout the week. If you’re single, are accustomed to a smaller fridge, or go out for dinner often, it can be a real mind-bender to try to think “big” when cooking.I, for one, spent years buying one avocado, one head of broccoli, one handful of snap peas. It took a real reckoning with my habits to transform my thinking, which finally occurred because my schedule filled up with work and other people. (Who wants to be the one to offer a guest a Parmesan rind and a splash of Cointreau? Nobody, that’s who.)Once you finally have the “thinking big” skill under your belt, and you’re making larger batches of stock and beans with the best of ‘em, vegetables can present the next hurdle. Maybe you want to incorporate more into your d

Puerto Rico fears post-Maria murder surge: 11 days, 32 slain

World
Before the sun rose on the first day of 2018, someone called 911 to report the charred, bullet-riddled body of a man with a snake-like tattoo on his left hand, lying beside a road in the Puerto Rican town of Vega Baja.

Officials said the district town planner (DTP) and the assistant town planner (ATP) might conduct random checks of the site to ensure the new rules aren't misused. In case of any discrepancy, the department ...
