Debi's Ditties -- February 2014

Love is in the air, can you feel it?  It was 13 years ago that my husband proposed to me at work in the cafeteria on Valentine’s Day.  Let me tell you, I was surprised at the timing...and so were my co-workers who were all waiting for me upstairs at my desk wanting to know what happened.  I was 46 when I got married for the first time and all I can say is ... it was definitely worth the wait!  I hope your Valentine’s Day is filled with such happiness and love.

Quote of the Month:  "For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul." -- Judy Garland 

Recipe of the Month:
Fruit and Cheese-Stuffed French Toast 
2 tbls light cream cheese, softened                             3 tbls fat-free milk
4 slices whole-wheat bread                                        1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbls strawberry or raspberry all-fruit spread           ½ tsp cinnamon
1 large egg                                                                  Pinch nutmeg
2 egg whites                                                              1 cup hulled & sliced strawberries
  1. Spread the cream cheese evenly on 2 slices of the bread, leaving a ¼ inch border. Spread the strawberry spread on the remaining slices of bread, leaving a 1/8 inch border. Put the slices of bread together to make 2 cream cheese-fruit sandwiches. Cut each sandwich in half on the diagonal; set aside.
  2. Beat the egg and eggs whites in a large shallow bowl or pie plate; whisk in the milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Add to sandwich halves to the egg mixture; let stand until evenly soaked, about 20 seconds on each side. Repeat with the remaining 2 sandwich halves.
  3. Spray a large nonstick skillet with nonstick spray and set over medium-high heat. Add the sandwiches to the skillet and cook until browned, 2-3 minutes on each side.  Serve with the berries.

    For the Single Girls: 
Is Valentine's Day the worse nightmare for singles? The whole world is celebrating love and you seem to be the only one left out? It doesn't have to be that way. Here is the action plan for fabulous single girls to enjoy this day.
Action 1. Release.
Get the negative feelings out of the way. It's OK to feel sad. Don't try to sugar-coat it by pretending to be happy. But remember, being single is way better than being trapped in a troubled relationship. If you have to, give yourself 5 minutes to focus on your misery, (you'll realize how stupid that is before the time is up.) Check to see if anything is changed. Then move to action 2.
Action 2. Express.
Valentine's Day is not just about romantic relationships, it's about the BIG love. Show your appreciation of your friend, your family, your pets, yourself, or planet earth! Send Valentine's Day card to your loved ones. And remember to pick the most fancy card for yourself and write down reasons why you're so special and lovable. Make sure it's big enough, cause you need all the space.
Action 3. Connect.
If you are determined to get out of singlehood, put yourself out there. Prince charming is not going to come and knock on your door no matter how long you stay home waiting. Think what you are passionate about. Join an interest group and start making friends. Try meetup, meet market adventures, or groups on facebook.
Action 4. Have fun.
There are plenty of singles parties on this day. Sign up and have fun! You'll realize that there is plenty of fish in the sea. You may find the special one on this special day. (Wishful thinking, I know, but be careful what you wish for, cause it might come true.)
Action 5. Get Physical.
If you are not the party type, exercise is a good way to boost your energy level and get you in a good mood. Go to the gym, attend a kickboxing class, try belly dancing, or go swimming in your poker dot bikinis.
Action 6. Indulge.
Before you can love others and be loved, you must love yourself. Pamper yourself with a SPA session or soak in your own tub with music (yes, you are encouraged to sing along) and aromatherapy candles. Enjoy a good massage and paint your toe nails in fuchsia.
You can pick a few actions from the list or do them all. Who knows, this may be your last single's valentine's day. Celebrate it, your way.
