Bananas are typically ready to be harvested late spring or early summer. The best time to pick your bananas are when the fruit is still green. After your banana harvest, cut your tree back to about 30 inches and let the stem dry out for two weeks before removing it.
Skinless, boneless chicken thighs are meatier, quicker to cook, and surprisingly healthier than you might think. They’re also budget-friendly and less expensive than breasts. It definitely saves you money and adds a delicious flavor to your meal.
Chicken thighs are the most delicious alternative. Marinate them so they can soak up flavor, grill for a smoky crispness, or coat in crumbs and pan fry for a lighter “fried” chicken.
1 1/2 lb. yellow new potatoes (about 25)
Kosher salt and pepper
4 medium chicken thighs
2 tsp. Dijon mustard
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. white wine vinegar
1 tbsp. prepared horseradish
2 scallions, finely chopped
1 tbsp. tarragon, chopped
2 small radishes, thinly sliced
1/4 c. flat-leaf parsley, chopped
- Place potatoes in a large pot. Add enough cold water to cover, then bring to a boil. Add 1 tsp salt, reduce heat, and simmer until tender, 12 to 15 minutes. Drain and run under cold water to cool.
- While potatoes are cooking, season chicken with ¼ tsp each salt and pepper and place in a large, heavy skillet, skin side down. Brush with mustard and place a piece of foil on top. Place a second skillet on top of the chicken and put heavy cans in a skillet (the contents won’t cook) to weigh it down (this will flatten the chicken so it cooks up evenly and extra-crisp). Cook on medium until skin is deep brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Flip chicken and cook, uncovered until cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes more.
- In a large bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, and horseradish; stir in scallions and tarragon. Halve potatoes (or quarter if large); toss with vinaigrette, then radishes.
- Fold parsley into potato salad and serve with chicken.

Skipping breakfast is associated with an increased risk for obesity, metabolic syndrome, elevated triglycerides, high LDL cholesterol, and low HDL cholesterol (all risk factors for cardiovascular disease) in children.
A large study published in the journal Circulation followed over 20,000 men for 16 years and found that those men who skipped it were 27% more likely to develop coronary heart disease.
Children who regularly eat the first meal of the day have higher IQs than those who only eat it on occasion.
Regular breakfast consumption is associated with better behavior in school and better academic performance, including better grades and achievement test scores.
You may be wondering what is in this salad that makes it such a party! We start with a blend of chopped spinach and cilantro, then top it with brown rice, pinto beans, and kidney beans.
