Preparation, serving safety necessarywith game day spreads By Phyllis Schoenholz Extension Educator The television was filled with Su- per Bowl .news this morning and mak- ing for prelarations for that big Sun- day event. Most people think a big fiat-screen television is the key ingre- dient fora great Super Bowl party. But even more important than watching football in high definition is food that has been safely prepared and properly served. The main thing to remember while serving party food is that hot food needs to stay at a temperature at or above 140 degrees, and cold food should always be at or below 40 de- grees. Foods like meats, cheeses, cut fruit and vegetables and dips should not sit at room temperature for more than two hours. When serving food use a variety of methods to ensure the food maintains the necessary temperatures. Serve hot foods in a crock pot or use a warming plate.Cold foods can be served on ice by placing the serving bowl inside a bowl with ice. Take some time to consider when people will be most likely to eat the food. If it&apos;s. not until halftime then make sure the food stays hot or cold until then. Also. serve food in smaller amounts. Don' t overwhelm guests with a large spread. When firings run out, replace them with the extras prepared and stored in the refrigerator or oven. This will ensure the food hasn't been left out. and it prevents wasting large amounts of food. Consider cross contamination when preparing the food. Always use a clean surface when cutting. If the cutting board has been used earlier, take the time to clean it thoroughly.

Nuckolls County Extension Educator Radon is a naturally occurring, in- visible, odorless gas that is harmlessly dispersed in outdoor air. but when trapped in buildings, can be harmful at elevated levels, Radon is a radioactive decay product of radium, which is it- self a decay product of uranium. Ura- nium and radium are both common elements m soil. The science on radon has been for- midable over the years, but never be- fore have we had such overwhelming The primary source of high levels of radon in homes is the sUrrounding soil. Radon gas enters the same way air and other soil gases enter the home: through cracks in the foundation floor or walls, hollow-block walls, and open- ings around floor drains, pipes and sump pumps. However. because you can't see or smell radon, people tend to minimize the health effects and ignore the possi- bility it might exist in elevated levels in their homes. All homes should be tested for radon, each house is different and individual testing is the only way to determine radon problems Testing homes for elevated levels of radon is simple and inexpensive, and if discov- ered. radon problems can be fixed. Radon test kits are available from the Nebraska Health and Human Ser- vices Department. Short-term detec- tors are used for two to seven days. They provide quick screening mea- surements indicating potential radon problems. Short-term detectors should be placed in the lowest livable level of the house, preferably during the win- ter. Long-term detectors (such as alpha track detectors are left in place for three months to one year. They provide the advantage of averaging seasonal variations associated with radon lev- els. Long-term detectors are generally placed in main living areas. i CHECK 0U ?OUR LOW MORTGAGE RARES!
