Smoked paprika is made from chili peppers that are smoked, dried and crushed. It gives a smoky flavor to this easy chicken dish. The secret to keeping the chicken breast evenly cooked and juicy is to pound the meat with a meat tenderizer or the bottom of a heavy skillet to give the chicken breast even thickness. Sesame seeds add a crunchy texture to the dish.
In the fall, I postpone turning on the heat in the house as long as possible. Instead, I turn on the stove burners to boil, simmer and stew. Likewise, the heat emanating from the oven means something good is baking, braising or roasting. Kitchen heat satisfies so much more than the closed-in feeling of heated rooms.
Some folks living in Hawaii miss the four seasons of more temperate regions, especially if they grew up in a region that has summer, fall, winter and spring. Here we have rainy and dry seasons. This is somewhat confusing since West Hawaii is beginning its dry season as the east side of the island is beginning its rainy season! Whether rainy or dry, fall is now and we do have fall colors if we look for them.
Monday, Oct. 26, marks the final day for the public to participate in a virtual University of Hawaii at Hilo open house to learn about the university’s proposed 28-inch educational telescope at Halepohaku, the mid-level facility on Maunakea. The educational telescope will be available to UH students, faculty and the community and will replace UH Hilo’s Hoku Kea telescope on the summit of Maunakea that is currently being decommissioned.
One of the fundamental premises of geology is that the “key to understanding the future is to understand the past.” In order to forecast how a volcano will behave, geologists must map the deposits from past eruptions and determine the ages of those deposits. Radiocarbon dating is our principal tool of use.
