Chrissy Teigen’s One-Skillet Orange Chicken Is Our New Answer to ‘What’s for Dinner?’

“What are we having for dinner?” is the Groundhog Day question I rarely have a ready answer for. You’d think I’d be prepared, since I get it nightly, but too often, the answer is “I don’t know” or “takeout.” Well, Chrissy Teigen — the currently-on-bed-rest, pregnant-with-a-baby-boy, all-around busy mama — has me covered with one of the latest creations from her Cravings website. Teigen shared her One-Skillet Orange Chicken recipe, and it’s a bright, citrusy, maple-y, sweet-and-spicy dinner that takes just 30 minutes to get on the table. And did we mention one pan?

Teigen posted the chicken recipe to her personal Instagram account, writing, “One pan maple-glazed orange chicken! I kept trying to adjust the color on this because I didn’t think you guys would believe it is this bright and beautiful of a dish, but it is!! Serve with some white or brown rice to soak up all

Between coronavirus-caused production delays and a glut of new streaming platforms, the future of television is rife with uncertainty right now. But here’s one thing we do know for sure: The (awards) show will go on. The 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards are scheduled to be handed out on Sept. 20, honoring pre-pandemic series like The Crown, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Schitt’s Creek, Succession and Watchmen.

But don’t expect to see the stars of all those shows in the same room. This year’s ceremony will be entirely remote, with the eventual winners accepting their statues from their homes. An all-virtual Emmys is a first for television, and you can bet that other awards shows — including the Golden Globes, the Grammys and the Oscars — will be watching closely should

What’s on Trump’s Sacramento agenda + Flavor tobacco ban referendum + New Prop. 15 poll

Good morning and happy Monday! Let’s get right into the news.

TRUMP TO SACRAMENTO

Fresh off a weekend of campaigning in Nevada, President Donald Trump is scheduled to touch down in Sacramento today for a briefing on West Coast wildfires.

He’s expected to meet with Gov. Gavin Newsom at McClellan Park, the business park and former Air Force Base that now houses California’s Office of Emergency Services and hangars for Cal Fire aircraft.

Trump is also hosting a round table, and at least one of the reported experts has a law enforcement background. That’s Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims, a Republican who has met with Trump on past visits to California.

Trump likely will be greeted by some protesters. The Democratic Party of Sacramento County on Sunday put word out that it’s organizing a rally outside McClellan Park this morning.

Over the weekend, Trump’s allies took swings at

What’s changed, what does it mean and where can you travel?

Off limits: Croatia has now been deemed a high-risk destination for British travellers: Simon Calder
Off limits: Croatia has now been deemed a high-risk destination for British travellers: Simon Calder

In the latest quarantine shuffle, “no-go” status has been lifted from Portugal after more than five months. But British travellers in Croatia, Austria and Trinidad & Tobago will need to self-isolate at home for two weeks if they arrive after 4am on Saturday 22 August.

These are the key questions and answers.

What has changed?

From 8 June until 9 July, the UK government imposed blanket quarantine for arriving travellers from any country on earth apart from Ireland. Self-isolation at home is an arduous undertaking, and the closest most of us will come to house arrest.

From 10 June, dozens of countries and territories were awarded “air corridor” status and placed on the exempt list – meaning travellers need not self-isolate on arrival.

But in response to rising rates of infection in some of those

As visitors continue to make their way back to Las Vegas, some of the chatter has shifted from what’s open to what’s not open — and what may never reopen.

The majority of the 30-some resorts along the Strip are now welcoming guests despite the continuing coronavirus outbreak. The Mirage will relaunch Aug. 27. As at other properties, the hotel, casino and pools will be open, but other accommodations will be limited. Only a portion of the resort’s restaurants, led by Tom Colicchio’s Heritage Steak, will welcome diners but hours and days of operation may vary. The popular Secret Garden & Dolphin Habitat, founded by magicians Siegfried and Roy 30 years ago, will once again delight visitors.

The Mirage is among the last of MGM Resorts’ Las Vegas properties to

What’s happened to your second coronavirus stimulus check?

Republicans and Democrats agree they want to give Americans another round of $1,200 relief payments to help ease some of the financial pain from the coronavirus and stimulate the troubled economy.

So where’s the money?

It’s tied up in a broader clash over COVID-19 assistance, including whether to revive the $600 boost in weekly unemployment benefits that expired last month.

“If we can get a fair deal we’re willing to do it this week,” Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin told CNBC on Monday. But no new negotiations are scheduled. Meanwhile, President Donald Trump is trying to get some aid going on his own, through executive orders.

Here’s what we currently know about when or if you’ll get another “stimulus check” — or direct deposit or debit card.

Second stimulus checks: What’s going on?

The new payments will be the same as the last ones, except for families.
