we are positively in football season around here Lucas monitoring all things out in Owings Mills. We’re getting the Maryland crabcake tour back out on the road. We will be at fade Lee’s next Friday tonight get ready for the holidays, getting ready for shipping crabcakes from all over the world to anyone you love, and lots and lots of places all brought to my friends at the Maryland lottery we’ll be giving away Raven scratch offs next week at Bally’s. We had a $50 winner last week at Pappas. So we were excited about that also our friends at Goodwill and we had a great experience with the folks that goodwill and giving away a meals setting people up for the holiday day before Thanksgiving. So big thanks to our friends at Goodwill and our friends wise markets for contributing to Turkeys in that as well as our friends at window nation. 866 90 nation we call these wise conversations around here and when I don’t have the remnants of my cinnamon ice cream or my wise eggnog around here, it is the holiday season me the day giving last week we were rounding up doing stuff the holidays around. My wife’s decorating the house right now. And we had parties and parties mean party platters and means good food and good stuff like that. Christina Pelletier is here from wise market. She’s the dietitian and I your dietitian and I hear charcuterie boards and the holidays together and you’re all gonna have a hard time staying charcuterie three times in a row. Christina How you been? How was your Thanksgiving?

01:26

Hi. Yeah, it was great. I was nice to have a few days off enjoy some nice food. Definitely. One of my favorite holidays.

01:35

Well because my favorite holiday went on like Monday night the football games lousy. You know the Steelers are playing called muffin I want to but I realize she’s feeling a little bit better. But she didn’t eat any of the leftovers. So like all of the turkey all of the stuffing all the green bean cash all the gravy, all the cranberry. I forgot about the cranberry. How did I do that? I ate leftovers. Last night. I had a mound of leftovers that I like I love Thanksgiving. It’s my favorite holiday. But you’re not here to talk about that. You’re here to talk about what happens after that. Can you put Turkey on a charcuterie board? Or is that against the rules? Christina,

02:13

you can put anything on a charcuterie board. It really you can make it your own. There are so many different variations. I know there’s there’s themed ones, you can make breakfast ones, or you know, you can get Thanksgiving charcuterie board with all like the leftovers if you want, or dessert ones, chocolate ones.

02:33

My mom always made me believe because it’s like a French word. It’s fancy. And I have a hard time saying it. Even when I’m in a restaurant, that it had to be fancy. You know what I mean? It had to be pre planned with certain meats and certain cheeses and all that I’ve never really thought about it as a place to put leftover stuff. And that’s what we’re getting after here. Right?

02:55

Yeah, I mean, it’s come a long way but there’s lots of variations. Now you can certainly do the classic kind of cheese board with the crackers and maybe nuts that’s one variation of it. But now there’s so many other ones where you can do you know your own personal taste to it your personal preferences or maybe you’re just have some, you know, leftover you know, all those that didn’t go in the salad or carrots and celery and just kind of make it your own kind of leftover charcuterie board.

03:25

Give me ideas here. I mean, I’m always thinking to me like charcuterie board like no offense, it always was like big chunks of cheese and like salami of some kind or like stuff you might put like he got on a pizza if it all melted. You put it together. That’s why I’m thinking of it. But Bri when you say Bri, my wife’s ears go up kinda like our cat doesn’t really Bri all melted cheese and I put stuff in it and it’s almost like fondue. So you know, but it’s got to have cheese right? I mean, what’s a charcuterie board without cheese?

04:02

Yeah, exactly. And just using those different textures, different flavors and one thing about Brie that I haven’t tried yet but I really really want to try is get getting a block of brie like a circle and taking a cookie cutter and kind of cutting out the shape of that cookie cutter and then filling that with jam so it kind of makes it fun shape and then taking that shape that you take out of it and just using it to decorate the board. So it sounds like a fun thing to do and you can use it for different holidays. So if it’s like Valentine’s Day and maybe do a heart or St Patrick’s Day maybe like a clover or whatever cookie cutter you can find

04:41

you’re crafty, aren’t you?

04:43

I try to be are you are

04:45

Crafty Crafty as well. Christina Bell tears here. She’s from wise markets, reminding everybody to round up here during the holidays and when you’re out during the holidays. You’re getting parties together charcuterie board she has reminded me can be anything and you No need to have a party, you can just break it out from Monday Night Football. Maybe that’s what I’m going to do with all the left. I have so much cranberry. Now I just completely forgot that I’ve eaten leftovers twice. Now without cranberry sauce, I think in Cranberry with the brie. Unlike some crap, that would work for me. I don’t waste leftover cranberry, especially when my wife gets the real cranberry. She went out she bought a pineapple. She’s got oranges, she’s got walnuts. She’s got all of this stuff in it. So it’s almost like perfect as it’s like jam. Really? When you mentioned jam.

05:34

Yeah, that sounds great. That’s a perfect addition to the shampoo jury board for sure.

05:39

All right. Well, do you have any tips on keeping this light? Because you are. I don’t want to tell anybody. I ate a lot. Last week. i My wife got sick. I was eating the pumpkin pie. Although we did have a problem when I can I lodge a wise complaint just cannot be the complaint department here for one minute. And this is my wife waiting until the day before Thanksgiving. Okay, because she went and she did all the shopping like on Sunday. And I remember last time I was on I had a lot of points on my wise app. My points and I showed them I might have a few more back now because I did some shopping over the weekend. Let me see how many points I have. Because Hannah always gives me a hard time when I don’t log in. So I got my wise markets app on my phone. And this is no BS so you can see my rewards. I’ve spent $4,593.46 This year okay. And I currently unlock hold on points. I got 112 points again. Alright. I was at zero last week. So I had we wiped our points out because she bought a turkey. Right she went out to get Turkey she got green beans. She got the mushroom for the casserole. She got the onions for that she bought all of this cranberry stuff. She buys whole loaves of pumpernickel regular bread she cuts it all up for the for the sheep celery the whole deal. got chicken stock. She made this the potatoes are mashed potatoes. She made me dumped the chicken stock in to replace the water. She boiled the potatoes and chicken stock or mashed potatoes were insane. Delicious, all of this. But here’s what happens. She does all the shop and she says to me, hey on your running out pick up this and that pick up like two little things and I was about getting the pumpkin pie because she didn’t pick up any pie. So when I had to get the pie and she says can you pick up whipping cream? I’m thinking well some whipped cream would be nice for the pumpkin pie. Probably be good in the mashed potatoes. She had ideas about what she was going to do. No whipping cream. So I got one I go to I go to three. I want to admit to you I even went to mark it’s not called wise look there. There’s no whipping cream anywhere in the state of Maryland the day before Thanksgiving because it comes in a little containers. There were signs in every store. Very handwritten, sorry, inconvenient. Whipping cream. It’s the toilet paper milk and bread of thanksgiving. I’m letting you know that

08:00

okay. Yeah, it’s a hot commodity.

08:03

Well, I didn’t have any whipped cream from my thank for my my pumpkin pie because she makes it fresh. She gets to pull out the blender the confection shirt like my wife scratch and when you don’t have whipping cream. I’m telling you we’re going to this will not happen at Christmas time. We will get our whipping cream on December the 12th or something because we’re not going to be subjected to that again on a holiday.

08:25

Yeah, I get it now because it stays good for a little while if you don’t open it right so get a stay prepared.

08:32

I thought you were gonna spank me about being not healthy on the holidays and being the dietician, I thought you were gonna give me a talk into your you have any advice for me not to eat every cookie and every piece of pie in front of me because I did go on the air last week and I said this. I said this in every segment to everyone that the Words of the Week The three most important words of Thanksgiving are ala mode and that means ice cream for me so I’ve been eating I just figured having a dietitian on during the holidays couldn’t hurt me that you would guilt me into doing something good for myself please do it.

09:03

Everyone to guilt you but you want to enjoy yourself right so it is the holidays there’s going to be pumpkin pie and ice cream and you know homemade whipped cream when we get the heavy cream back right so you got to do to

09:17

have the light whipping cream and I didn’t feel like that that was decadent. For me. I wasn’t sure it would really make whipped cream flat with cream because I don’t know the difference, you know,

09:30

right? You want to make it taste good. If you’re going to enjoy it, you want the real thing and just everything in moderation you got to have a balance of everything. But still really enjoy yourself because it only comes once a year. And again just keeping in mind you know, taking everything that you want and again just moderation keywords.

09:50

Well my my wife went looking for it they actually had to cancel the ready whip and the you know the non dairy. You know the things you did the Whippets with back in the day She didn’t pick it up. By the time I went out looking for that was going to I am admitting to my wife’s dietician here that I have not had had a lot of things since Thursday. I have not had any whipped cream. So, so I am cutting down I thought you feel a little better, although I made up for it. The pumpkin pie and I got into it early like on Wednesday night because my son came over the night before and because he was getting the Christmas decorations out right because that’s what I’m a storage facility for my son. So he came over and I got the pumpkin pie out. We didn’t have any whipped cream. So you know what I did? I heated it up. I even Googled Can you keep pumpkin pie up is a good idea or not. And then I went for the cinnamon ice cream to script cinnamon ice cream. So you know one dab of whipped cream equals two scoops why cinnamon ice cream so I didn’t also I don’t want to act like I got skinny during the holidays because I didn’t you know, but I am talking to my dietician. I feel like it’s almost like discussing this with religious leader like I’m trying to be I’m trying to be good and ask for forgiveness here. For all the sins I’m about to have Christina Pelletier is here she’s wise market she is a dietitian in the real world. Tell me what you do for on a daily basis trying to help customers add wise markets and and I can’t allow it and you know my wife’s diabetic and she’s been ill this week but we are we don’t want people to do the wrong thing during the holiday as much as we got gambling in Maryland we’re saying moderation Take it easy. Same thing is true for the holidays here we want to keep people on the up and up

11:31

exactly it moderation still enjoy yourself and you know if you have any questions I am available we do one on one consultations that are free for all wise rewards card holders. And we also have virtual classes that you can cook along with us and so if you ever have any questions about you know, what should I need? Or you know, need I Diaz for recipes, join one of our classes, we do dinner brunch with kids classes, so there’s something for everyone and we also have holiday appetizer classes. I’m actually doing a Mediterranean charcuterie board so

12:08

Hamas good stuff.

12:10

Oh yeah Hamas to Ziqi we have cucumbers, tomatoes, always you can really take a cucumber

12:16

and you dump it into to Ziqi especially to the Ziqi they milk over cost this I mean are they like they have great to see. Oh, it’s delicious. What Tiki sauce was hiding for me the first 3040 years of my life, you know, I I needed to get more culture to the Mediterranean way of doing things.

12:34

Yeah, it’s a really easy dip to use and like add into different meals, especially your charcuterie board to add some nice flavor and really maybe even get you to eat more veggies too.

12:45

Alright, so listen after Christmas. I gotta get my app up because I so I’m qualified to call you and say I need a consultation because I have a wise rewards card. So I’m at 112 I’m trying to get up to 400 So I get my ham. Now what usually happens is much like a turkey the two of us had a 13 pound turkey. We’re making turkey Allah King. My wife is making turkey Tetrazzini just because he like saying Tetra Zini really but I like eating it because I like egg noodles. So we were making bags of Olive king with peas and carrots and onions. For to put on to we were going to do puff pastries with the ala King. This is leftover turkey now, but leftover ham. You got to get my wife on the podcast to do her bean soup recipe and and certainly slippy split pea soup with hand after the holidays. It’s a must. And we bag lots of it. And I think I told you a couple months ago I went up eating my wife split pea soup. It was September, like literally from Christmas of last year because we froze it down. We kind of found in the back of the freezer. It was still delicious. But making soups after Christmas. It is it’s a part of what we do. And that state keeps us Hardy the first three months of the year.

14:00

Oh yeah, absolutely. And it’s kind of a nice warm thing to have especially during the winter months. Absolutely. And you can add again all sorts of vegetables in there some protein so it isn’t really like Neil that hacks in a lot of nutrients.

14:16

We hit the bakery department wise and we get some delicious sourdough bread and we chop it real nice and I toasted up a little butter man with a with a bowl of soup on a cold day in January, February. It’s so perfect. Christina Pelletier is here. She’s the dietitian. It always makes me hungry. I don’t know what it is. She’s wise markets. You can find her certainly out there and make sure you take care of her friends wise and big day earlier this week. Day of Giving on Tuesday. Don’t just take that as literally only one day. You can give all month long and take care of our friends as you round up for the holidays and take care of folks locally with our wives markets and our wives conversations always good to see you. Hope to see you again. Before the there’s a rumor you might be back during the holidays to tell Talk about New Year’s resolutions try to get me skinny as I’m eating all that soup the week after Christmas. All right? Yes, I will never eat soup on the first day. That’s the other rule. You got to let that sit for a day or two. It’ll taste better. I’m Nestor. We are wn st am 1570, Towson Baltimore. We never stopped with our wives conversations, and our Baltimore positive.com

Right Now in Baltimore

Right Now in Baltimore

After 26 faithful purple seasons, the Ravens have bullied me out of my seats and denied my media access

This is my story. This is the truth. And it must be told. In its entirety because it's so outrageous as to be almost unbelievable. Covering the Ravens is all I’ve ever done professionally since the team arrived in Baltimore in 1996, and this is how I feed my family and pay my bills as a small local business and AM 1570 radio operator and entrepreneur.

#ColumnNes Regarding Lamar Jackson, the lack of maturity is a bigger issue than an ugly tweet

If Lamar Jackson regrets the statement to the fellow in Pennsylvania, he should’ve offered an apology to him. If he regrets the world seeing his ugly words, Jackson has a platform with a million followers and could’ve offered an apology. If it was truly “out of character,” then show your character and admit a mistake and move on.

Why did Chad Steele take my press credentials after 26 years of covering the Baltimore Ravens?

This is my story in my own words. Listen and learn about how the NFL treats the local media and avoids the tough questions and intimidates local media who have traveled and reported on Baltimore football since before Art Modell brought the Ravens here in 1995. What happened is wrong and here's why...
