Eating Nose to Tail

Fresh periwinkles
Fresh periwinkles, these babies cost 2.5$ and I have no idea how to cook them.  Thankfully, the internet came to the rescue - and the answer is boil them.

But first rinse, and rinse, and rinse in cold water until the water is totally clean and there's no sand in the bottom of the bowl.
Picture
Soaking until the water is clear.
I boiled mine with a few sprigs of thyme and half a lemon, I was surprised at the aroma of the periwinkles cooking.  It smelled like the ocean on a warm summer day, with a hint of thyme and lemon.

Drain after being boiled.
Drain them and discard the water, then get some garlic butter and a baguette ready and you've got a delicious - if not labor intensive meal.

Periwinkles, cooked and ready to eat.
After going through every poking device I could think of I settled on a sewing need to pry my little sea snails out of their twirly shells.  But I suspect a sharp toothpick would work as well.
Picture
Cleaned periwinkles.
I ended up taking all my periwinkles out of the shells (once I'd had my fill) so I could use them in another dish.

Perwinkle risotto
And later that day we feasted on a quinoa 'risotto' with mushrooms, shallots and peas, topped with tender periwinkles - and it was absolutely delicious.

Chart and reward the fundamentals. Again fundamentals are a lost art and a reward system can assist a coach in stressing these attributes in their team. Have an assistant or team manager chart the amount of charges taken, good screens set etc., and reward the players that accomplish these facets of the game properly. Give a player a break from some of the more grueling drills if they are atop the fundamentals chart from last week's game. Thanks.

For example, depositing rent in escrow only became legal as a result of far-reaching rent strikes in the 1960s, he said.
