Ostrich meat for good sports

Here's a first: a sports- nutrition food made of ostrich. Ostrim meat stick is a high-protein, low-fat, low-sugar snack that looks something like beef jerky. The taste isn't bad, either. Ostrim even has an Olympic gold medalist for a spokesman, wrestler Kurt Angle (above).

There's only one catch. If your kids are like my kid, after they find out what's in it, they'll never touch it.

Ostrim is available locally at GNC stores.

The Fine Grind, a gourmet coffee and tea shop, has just opened at 101 S. Main St. in Bel Air. You can get 30 or so coffees by the pound, plus teas, imported candies and pastries. Espresso-based drinks like latte and cappuccino are also for sale.

Marinate beef in salad dressing

Looking for a fast marinade for a piece of beef? Place the meat and Italian salad dressing (bottled dressing is fine) in a zippered plastic bag. Marinate in the fridge for several hours or overnight, turning the bag over every once in a while.

Chicken recipes could earn a prize

The winner gets a Caribbean vacation for two or the cash equivalent. The only catch is that time is running out to enter the Delmarva Chicken Cooking Contest. Entries for original recipes using broiler-fryer chicken must be postmarked on or before Feb. 2.

For contest details, call 302-856-9037.
