Red Roses or Red Heart Box of Chocolates?


HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!
 
Do you feel loved when you receive red roses or are given a heart-shaped box of chocolates?

Is love about wearing a short red dress, red high heels, the Pandora bracelet with a heart charm and going for dinner and having a glass of red wine?

Is it when he gently slides your hair away from your face and kisses you on the cheek? 

With the passing of time, from raging passion in the boudoir there is a shift to the sofa, not another kama sutra pose, but a mere propping up of feet on the coffee table.  A slump, a mellow change....holding on to tightly, treasuring as lost found treasure when missing????......none other than the remote!  A sudden jealousy?  (wink)

Admirable is love when from behind their silver hair shine, one holding the other's arm, supporting and guiding through the slushy snow of life, caring and never letting go. 

Love is like your favorite pair of old shoes - comfortable, soft, so soft, cradling your feet - carrying you all day and never hurting you but always supporting you; such is true love.

May your life be blessed with a pair of comfortable shoes, a caring, loving partner!
:)

wink. smile. laugh!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Our Lady of Good Health, Vailankanni

Attendees of the Healing Retreat for Caregivers at St. Emeric's Church in Manhattan today were truly blessed with powerful talks and healing by Father Halbing and the beautiful presence of Chad Gatchalian's Holy Statue of Our Lady of Good Health, Vailankanni.  Chad has got this Holy Statute all the way from India.  She joyfully shares Our Lady, also known as the "Lourdes of the East," with congregations at various places of worship throughout the country.

Apparitions of Our Lady of Vailankanni ("Virgin of Velai") first occurred in the 16th Century.  To read more about the interesting history, click here.  For more information on the Basilica for your next trip to India, please visit vailankannishrine.org

The New Kick in My Block

Did you know that this is the original Sriracha? Mrs. Chakkapak created it in her kitchen in Si Racha, Thailand, for her family and friends. See article from Bon Appetit by Andrea Nguyen.

I came across this chopstick-licking sauce, which is hot, yet slightly sweet, during my trek to the Thai Grocery Store. I prefer it to the sweet chili sauce with loads of pepper seeds. Sriraja has the right kick! What I especially appreciate is that it is free of preservatives and artificial coloring and has no msg!  Can't wait to dig in to my bowl of noodles!

Bon appétit!

Can Can Night

Do you struggle with preparing a meal at home on Friday evenings? My legs could barely carry me home tonight - I had done a lot of running around this week and running up and down the long subway escalators. I was kaput!

Did I forget my vitamins??

I ran out of my go-to-comfort food.  Brown rice tortillas and Daiya cheese are my butter and toast. Trader Joe's hasn't had any brown rice tortillas recently - all the snow storms we have been having - people have been grabbing them before I reach there!

After eating a few corn tortilla chips, dried coconut chips, I knew I had to make something substantial 'cause I wasn't going to survive on that or rice crackers and kimchi sauce!

Enter the can can dance! I kept eyeing the can of kidney beans while my mouth salivated. "Yes, I want that!" "Nah! Who's going to chop garlic, tomatoes, etc.?" I debated with myself - I'm too tired.

I gave in - made the kidney beans and have enough energy to write this …
