A solid rule of thumb provided by the 1-800-shaved-ice is to multiply each ounce of a cup by 2 cents. So a 12-ounce cup would have COGS of roughly 24 cents.
President Obama apparently didn’t even have a job while in high school or college. Harvard and Yale is where he learned about private enterprise. He never experienced being a stock clerk at the corner hardware store or the kid that delivered the pies from the neighborhood pizzeria. His knowledge of small business comes from being a customer. He never invested his savings into opening a dry cleaner or even a law office. While his running mate, Joe Biden, might speak as if he knows how it is to work the factory line, he has been in politics his entire adult life. His greatest financial risk is if the Republicans shut down the government and he misses his paycheck.
It is easy to get lost in big projects, so mini projects can be really useful for two main reasons. Firstly, as long as the mini project fits into the overall scheme of things (see Step Two) then you shouldn’t get lost, you will always have your point of reference. Secondly, most people fitness evolution projects less daunting and easier to get started on. They also find them easier to plan out and take ownership of.
Basil is very popular and easy to grow. Basil leaves are used in Italian pasta sauce along with oregano. The longer the sauce is simmered, the more flavor is released from the basil leaves. Fresh basil is an important part of the delicious margherita pizza, along with fresh garden tomatoes and mozzarella cheese. Fresh basil can be chopped and incorporated into salads, pastas and vegetable dishes.
Finally the fermented tea is fired, hence blackened, for 20 minutes to reduce the leaf tissue moisture to 3%. The quality of the tea depends greatly on the local climate, and the processing techniques. The flavor of the tea comes from the essential oil called theol, and the alkaloid theine, which is essentially identical to caffeine.
Parsley adds fresh flavor to almost any dish. It is also a natural breath freshener. Try chopping parsley and freezing in small containers to add to your cooking throughout the year.
Make sure to boil the water in a teakettle, specifically either porcelain or glass. A metal teapot can add a metallic flavor to the tea, and it will cause the water to cool more rapidly. Bring the water to a boil (185 degrees).
Toiletries – If you are stopping at a hotel even once or twice, don’t bother carrying your own shampoo, soap, or toothpaste from home. Hotels throw away the little bottles of toiletries even if you don’t use them, so take them! If you have to take your own supplies from home, measure them into smaller containers. Put those into plastic zip-lock bags in case of leakage. Do not overfill the small containers – contents may expand in the heat.
