My ingredients this time were quite similar to what I bought before so I decided to try my hand at salsa again. I wanted quick, easy and healthy, since I've recently changed my eating habits. I bought some peppers and tomatoes and what I whipped up did not disappoint.Remembering what I did last time, I used that as my guide but switched things up just a bit to rely on the natural flavors of my ingredients. This is not your typical salsa.
The rain dampened our spirits a little and we certainly weren't as busy as we hoped we'd be. Only 12 people entered our contest. Some were fearful they'd completely bomb it while others just didn't think they'd do well enough to win. We allowed people to look and smell the spices and herbs, but no tasting allowed.Katie Sumpter, Brainerd, and her mother, Heide Benedict, also of Brainerd, accepted the challenge and were the only two who got all 10 answers correct.
Don't get me wrong. Some of that is OK in moderation, but not if you're really trying hard to lose weight and that's the category I am currently in.Since May 1, I have been following a relatively strict diet but was recently given some leeway in what is called a maintenance phase, when some foods I couldn't eat before were reintroduced back into my diet. Summer or not, I've been missing pizza. I could eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner, seven days a week.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
