Who’s The Fairest Vegetable of Them All?
I recently ran into an ex on the subway while he was on his way to the new girlfriend. Our giddy conversation caused a friend of mine to comment, “That’s how RomComs start,” which got me thinking that I do wish I was living in a fairy tale.
With fantasy fiction books and real life revivals of fairy tales hitting the big screen, it makes sense that many are anticipating the release of the Snow White based film, Mirror Mirror. Excited at first, I soon sadly realized that no matter how long I looked in my mirror, I’ll never look like Julia Roberts.
You have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your prince.
If you are single, you know that no man picks you up on a white horse, and you’re lucky if he even stands to give you his seat on the subway. Make your own romance…with food.
Sensual and seductive, many recipes have saved me from my personal fiery dragon: loneliness. Cooking for and with people strengthens relationships, and if you are smart about your choices it can strengthen your health too.
With florets as white as snow.
PureWow recently featured a cauliflower soup recipe from the cookbook Soup of the Day that is so enchanting that Prince Charming will never leave your side (or kitchen). This cruciferous vegetable can help in the body fight against cancer while fighting the hunger pains of an empty stomach. If this recipe isn’t your “cup of…soup” then try either the Cauliflower, Brussels Sprouts and Red Beans With Lemon and Mustard recipe featured in the NYTimes or the enticing Cauliflower Steaks with Olive Relish and Tomato Sauce recipe from Bon Appetit.
So dump Grumpy, Sneezy and the Dope-y who doesn’t treat you right.
You are the fairest of them all.
