You have been asking this and I know that it is not easy to deal with a Gemini in grumpy, hopeless, drama-queen mode. Hey, I'm an expert, I have done this many times... being in distress, I mean ;) So, this is my simple recipe, my first-aid kit. More will follow.
1. A friend, like Silvia! No solitude allowed, you know that your mind will drive you crazy, so stop listening to it. Drive a friend crazy, instead! 2. Go Out!Don't sit down with your misery, but head to an interesting place nearby; a place that you would normally find entertaining. Normally, 'cause at the moment you are enjoying too much bitching and sobbing, aren't you?3. Do something fun, but most of all just Do! 4. Immerse yourself in art! The sillier, wilder, crazier the better. 5. Eat something delicious. Food is always a good remedy, isn't? But don't stuff yourself... moderation?!? I Know!
Give it a try it and let me know if it works. I will share other variations with you. And hey, don't forget my giveaway, four days left!
For the Smoked salmon benedict: toast a fresh ciabatta bread and cut it into nice, thick slices. Layer the smoked salmon on top of it. Make one or two poached eggs per person and complete with a smooth sauce made of equal parts of sour cream and light yogurt (to wash down the guilt), fresh cilantro, lemon juice to taste and a pinch of salt.
For the yam home fries: cut the yam into thick pieces, in the meantime heat some good olive oil in a pan. When it is hot, add the yams and go crazy with the spices. Cilantro, rosemary, basil, oregano, pepper, be extravagant! And do not forget some fresh garlic. Fry until soft inside and a bit crispy on the outside.
On the healthy side... I scarified one of my poached eggs (S.I.G.H.) for a fresh tomato salad :)
Martin Luther King Jr. Day, marks the end of the holidays, doesn't it? But hey, have no fears, I have a cure for the January blues!
