Designate a Light at Thompson in Honor or in Memory of a Loved One

This holiday season, the guild’s Tree of Lights will once again be featured prominently in front of UR Medicine Thompson Health’s skilled-nursing facility, the M.M. Ewing Continuing Care Center on Parrish Street in Canandaigua.

Lights are a minimum donation of $5 each. Written acknowledgments are sent to those honored or to the families of those memorialized.

Easy Glute Exercises

The gluteus muscles (maximus, medius, and minimus) provide some powerhouse for the body. They help us walk, climb stairs, and just plain stand up. In fact, they are the largest muscle group in the body. Read more.

Uses for Pumpkin Seeds

If you have never done it, here is how you extract the seeds from a pumpkin. Wash all the innards and remove the seeds from the stringy material. Discard the strings and dry the seeds with towels. Toss the seeds with some oil and maybe some salt. Spread them on a cookie sheet and roast at 325 degrees until they are golden brown, about 25 minutes, depending on your oven. They can be stored in a zip closure bag in the refrigerator. Read More.

Sweet and Sour Couscous

Couscous looks like a grain, but is actually a type of pasta. Originating in North Africa it is made from semolina (durum wheat) flour mixed with water. It is high in carbohydrates so is not very blood sugar friendly. It contains fewer essential nutrients and is not suggested for those with gluten sensitivity. You can buy it in a container that will last for many months or pre-packaged in boxes that come with flavor packets. Most are quick cook variety. It is easy to cook and makes a nice side dish. Sometimes you find it as tri colored, which does not affect the flavor but makes for a more colorful serving. Read More.
