>> editor’s note

january 15, 2014

here’s a line in the famous holiday poem, “The Night Before Christmas,” that I think seems out of place: “And mama in her kerchief, and I in my cap, had just settled our brains for a long winter’s nap.” And it’s not the reference to historical nighttime garb. It’s the term “long winter’s nap.” If ever a time to settle in for such a duration, it’s not typically the night before we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ and the arrival of Santa Claus. In fact, that has to be one of the seemingly shortest nights of the year, especially for parents. Instead, now is the time. The holiday glow is gone. The new year has come. And frankly, we’re all exhausted. It’s the perfect time to nap. Ah, if only we could all be so lucky, right? Well, it’s 2014, and if you’re like me, despite a lack of rest, you still feel content at the blessed year behind you and the potential of the one to come. In the letdown of the hurriedness and merriment from the holiday season, many people start to feel slightly depressed as the cold, dull days of January and February continue. That’s why I, like many, take this time of year to revel in the past and plan for the future. It’s a time of self-reflection. Last year (it’s still weird to refer to 2013 as that) brought us some wonderful gifts— most joyously, the birth of our daughter, Evey, but also a new home. This year, we’ll celebrate the big 2 with Nolan (in fact it’s coming up in just a few weeks) and inevitably take on some projects with said “new” home. Since we have young kids, we’ll just take one day at a time and enjoy the here-andnow as we come to it. So as we all enter another year and a new phase or chapter in our own lives, I wish you the best of luck and continued blessings. From all of us at She magazine, Happy New Year!

If you’ve been heeding that ancient rule that white should be reserved for warm-weather months, then it’s time to break away. In fact, white is one of the hottest colors coming from the winter and spring 2014 fashion runway. Of course winter white takes on a softer, creamier hue than its summer counterpart, making it compatible with virtually any other color or pattern, from muted neutrals to bold jewel tones.

Winter white can be manifested in blouses, sweaters, pants, shoes or purses. Under the impression that a formal affair requires a little black dress? A winter white ensemble conveys just as much elegance.

When it comes to wearing white in the winter, be smart and balance this bright color with more cold-weather appropriate accents or textures. For example, select a wool winter white coat or white faux-fur jacket. Those rich, heavy fabrics provide contrast for the color. Pair white jeans with a dark-colored top or vice versa. Make an outfit of skinny jeans and tall boots pop with a white leather jacket.

For a more professional look, pair winter white trousers with a colorful, seasonal sweater or animal print. Just be sure your accessories complement the white tones. Don’t try to match everything or else the varying hues of white can start to look messy. The weather outside is dreary enough. Take the winter white plunge this season and at least make your wardrobe brighter. *she

By Catherine Hageman It happened during my last closet clean-out: I got rid of something because I knew I was too old for that certain sparkly shirt. Now before you bust out the violins and turn the page so you don't have to read the woe-is-me column from the 20-something, you should know that I'm not going to solicit pity or bemoan my next birthday (which is this month). I'm simply joining the ranks of people who have realized their personal style is evolving, as it should with job changes, personal achievements and yes, age. Far be it from me to take away from Stacy and Clinton, the stars of the late, great TLC show "What Not to Wear," but one thing that would have me yelling "Ditto!" at my TV was when they helped women dress their age. And this is also not a case of an (almost) 29-yearold thinking she has free rein when it comes to wearing anything or telling others what to wear themselves. There are a few pieces I've held onto for perhaps a year or two (or five) too long: sequined tops and baby-doll shirts that didn't look out of place at Nick's in Bloomington but don't quite serve me as well now that my main haunts are the Cummins offices. Age is just one of the many factors that change our style. Just as you wouldn't act the same at 30 as you did at 20, your wardrobe should change, too. You can still be true to yourself, whether it's with lots of jewelry or bright colors (or both), while at the same time letting your style evolve. Blazers have become a huge staple in my closet, even more than cardigans. Part of that is due to what I wear to work, but I also find I like to dress more seriously even on the weekends. There's no better outfit than a good blazer and a pair of jeans to me. Had you asked me that 10 years ago, I would have laughed and grabbed my Phi Mu sweatshirt instead. I might miss college, but I like being a little dressier nowadays. But please don't think that as you get older, your style needs to mean more covered up. While that's true to some extent, I don't think clothes for older women need to equal frump.

This is where this column gets tricky, so I'm just going to come out and say it: It's painfully obvious to me that some women have given up on their personal style. It's as if they’ve suddenly reached an age where they no longer care, and it shows. That makes me sad. I'm not saying you have to spend a ton of money or put in a huge amount of effort every morning. I know life gets busy. Between family and careers, some things are just more important than an outfit. But when you feel good about yourself, your confidence goes up. That's priceless, and I think every person should feel that way.

Age is just one of the many factors that change our style. Just as you wouldn’t act the same at 30 as you did at 20, your wardrobe should change, too. And please don't take this as my telling women they can't have fun or experiment; I promise that's not my intent. Last year I fulfilled a fashion bucket-list item and bought a romper — or as those with fewer positive inclinations might call it — a onesie; and I promise, it was more flattering than I thought it would be. (Going to the bathroom, however, presented challenges.) Personal style is an ongoing journey, one that has no expiration date or limit. While some pieces may be only a thing of the wardrobe past, I'd rather focus on all the outfit possibilities in my fashion future. *she Catherine Hageman lives in Columbus with her “fur babies,” Hamlet, Horatio, Othello and Perdita.

Lofty Ambition Flight nurse Julie Simpson is well-grounded in the skills she needs in the air By Paige harden

15


Julie Simpson knew at a young age

that she wanted to save lives when she grew up. Her dream job was to become a nurse on a medical helicopter. “Every time we drove through Indianapolis or Louisville, I can remember gazing at the helicopters on top of the major hospitals and thinking how cool they were and how much I wanted to fly in one when I grew up,” she said. After graduating from nursing school and starting a family in Columbus, Simpson said she put her dream on hold. “When I graduated, the closest medical helicopter was in Indianapolis,” she said. “I didn’t want to drive to Indianapolis for my job, especially with young kids at home.” For the first 15 years of her career, she served as a nurse in the Columbus Regional Hospital emergency department. “I really loved my time there. We were like one big family,” she said. “I learned so much every day because you never knew what kind of medical problem was going to walk through the door.” In 2004, St.Vincent StatFlight placed a helicopter in Columbus. “I knew that this was going to be my opportunity to pursue my dream,” Simpson said. “I was so nervous, though, because I was leaving something I was comfortable with to do something I knew nothing about.” The initial training was intense, including hundreds of hours of in-class and hands-on training, before she took her first official flight. “Our training is so advanced that we are working at the top level of our skills,” she said. “I really like that, though, because I feel like I am always becoming a better, more knowledgeable nurse.” Simpson now flies out of the StatFlight base at St. Vincent Jennings Hospital in North Vernon. She works two, 24-hour shifts each week. “I can’t believe I am living my dream as a flight nurse. Some days, it doesn’t even seem real,” she said. “I am so lucky because not many people get to live out their dreams.” StatFlight flies within a 150-mile radius of its bases, serving the entire state of Indiana and many surrounding states. Patients at the scene of a trauma are transported to the nearest appropriate trauma center. StatFlight also transports people from smaller, regional hospitals to larger hospitals often in metropolitan areas that are equipped to handle more severely ill patients. The helicopter is staffed by one pilot, one flight nurse and one flight paramedic. It is large enough to transport only one patient at a time. “The space is very tight, but we have everything we could ever need to save a patient’s life,” Simpson said. Flight crews must be ready for a call at any time, which could mean 3 a.m., 3 p.m. or any time in between.

“Some days are worse than others in terms of number of calls. We try to take short naps if at all possible so we aren’t exhausted when we get those calls in the middle of the night,” Simpson said. “As soon as you wake up, you get an instant rush of adrenaline, and all of your training kicks in. You know you have to be on top of your game no matter what.” She said each shift is intense. “Some patients are worse than others, but every patient we get is in critical condition,” she said. “You have to be able to make snap decisions.” The relationship between the flight nurse and flight paramedic is crucial, she said. “We have to rely on each other and work flawlessly together for the best possible outcomes for our patients.” Simpson said flight nurses and paramedics have a language of their own. “We might go through an entire call and say very few actual words because we know each other so well,” she said. “Generally I might be better at one thing and my partner is better at another thing, and we do our jobs without much discussion. When we get a patient, time goes by really fast, so you have to get to work as soon as possible to help the patient.” Beth Ann Grass, a StatFlight paramedic, has worked with Simpson for six years. “When you are caring for severely sick and injured people, it’s critically important to have a good flow with your partner,” Grass said. “Julie is an amazing nurse. She brings so much knowledge with her.” Communication, while not always verbal, is crucial.

“Working well together takes an incredible amount of communication, especially because we work in such a tight area,” Grass said. “Sometimes we don’t even talk. We both know what our jobs are and can anticipate what the other person is going to do. Working that closely together and getting to know each other so well makes you an extremely strong team.” Simpson’s calm and compassionate nature also is an asset, Grass said. “She is such an amazing person. Julie has an enormous love for her job and loves to help people,” she said. “Sometimes all a patient needs is for you to hold their hand and tell them you are going to take care of them. Julie is great at that because she cares so much about the care she’s giving.” Simpson said one of the hardest parts of the job can be caring for a friend or relative. “I have family and friends in all three counties that we cover. I’m able to shut it out until the end of the run because I know I have to treat everybody to the best of my ability,” she said. “But it can be extremely emotional afterward.” While it can be hard to treat a relative or friend, it also can be rewarding, she said. “Because I do live where I work, I will run into them in town. It’s a wonderful feeling knowing you were a part of the team that saved their life,” Simpson said. “It’s an honor to know that I get to make a difference in people’s lives every day.” On her days off, she fills in at Schneck Medical Center’s emer-

gency department, leads training sessions with local fire and ambulance departments and takes classes at Valparaiso University. She plans to graduate with a doctorate in nursing and will be a licensed family nurse practitioner. “Continuing education is so important,” she said. “I always want to learn more and to grow as a nurse.” While her schedule seems hectic, Simpson said it has been ideal for raising a family. “My schedule has given me the flexibility to be at all of the children’s activities, even the ones most parents aren’t able to attend,” she said. “Some weeks I work only the two days on the helicopter, and other weeks I work seven days in a row. It just depends on what is going on in our life. I

am very fortunate to have a career with so much flexibility.” Completing her advanced degree would not be possible without the support of her family, especially her husband, Rob, Simpson said. “He has gone out of his way to show his support for my dream of continuing my education,” she said. “I don’t know what I would do without him.” Rob is a detective with the Indiana State Police, a job that also can have a hectic schedule and inherent dangers. “There is risk every time either of us goes to work,” Simpson said. “We talk to our kids about it, but we don’t focus on it. Rob and I are driven by service to others. We know of the dangers, but we both feel that we have been called to help people.” *she

New store offers baby products that are kinder to the child and the environment By kelsey declue photos by april knox

Around the time Jenna OgilvieHoneas’ son turned 5 months old, she saw a video on disposable diapers and their impact on landfills and the environment. She immediately started cloth-diapering Rowan, now 19 months old. “I never thought I’d be using cloth diapers, but I saw that (video) and it really affected me,” Ogilvie-Honeas said. “I decided to adopt more natural parenting techniques.” The lifestyle change led the 29-year-old to a new adventure professionally as well. In the late fall she opened Stash, a cloth diaper and natural parenting store, off U.S. 31 near Taylorsville. The name refers to what parents who use cloth diapers call their collection.

“I wanted to be able to stay at home with my son, but still have an outlet for myself.” —Jenna Ogilvie-Honeas

Ogilvie-Honeas researched cloth diaper and natural product brands and wholesalers, as well as local artisans, with products that would coordinate with the theme of her store. Some of the natural parenting products include baby-wearing accessories and carriers and handmade clothing and accessories. The shop also sells used furniture refurbished by OgilvieHoneas’ mother. The store is located in the space adjacent to the family’s Silgas com-

pany, where her father formerly operated a hardware store. “I thought it would be fun,” she said. “I’ve always worked for family, so this was a way for me to do something on my own.” Ogilvie-Honeas and her husband, J.R., a pharmacist at Columbus Regional Hospital, live in Columbus. She keeps her schedule flexible by splitting the five-day workweek with a part-time clerk. “I wanted to be able to stay at home

with my son, but still have an outlet for myself,” she said. Natural parenting is a trend that continues to rise in popularity, with more moms and dads wanting to get back to the basics by using products and techniques that are gentle on the environment and their children. However, basic doesn’t always mean easy. “(Cloth diapering) can be really confusing at first,” she said. “And when you’re january 2014 // she magazine

23


first starting out, that’s tough because you don’t know what you’re buying. It helps if you can see the product in person and find (the type of diaper) that works for you and your baby.” Cloth diapering isn’t what it used to be. The days of folding and pinning, and soaking and boiling have been replaced by stylish button-able diapers that have customizable absorbency inserts. “There are no more safety pins and the risk of poking your baby. The baby doesn’t have to wear those plastic pants over their diaper anymore,” Ogilvie-Honeas said. “Really, when it comes down to it, it’s not much different than disposable diapers. It’s also much more cost-effective.” Columbus mom Linda Lang tries to use as many natural and reusable products in her household as possible, including cloth diapers. “We have a 2-year-old little boy who we have cloth diapered from around 3 months,” Lang said. “We decided to cloth diaper for two reasons, the financial aspect as well as the green aspect. “Cloth diapers have been such a benefit for our family. When we first switched to cloth, we had to either order online or drive an hour away for anything clothrelated,” Lang said. “So it is very nice to know that with one trip to Stash we can purchase cloth diapers, cloth wipes and cloth nursing pads as well as baby carriers, nursing covers and reusable snack bags.” Natural parenting techniques were something Columbus mom Rachel Eddins knew very little about before she became pregnant with her daughter. “As my husband and I researched, we found that they are not only great for the baby but very cost-effective,” Eddins said. “Between cloth diapering and exclusive breast-feeding, we were able for me to be a stay-at-home mom and be home with our daughter.” Eddins began cloth diapering when 24

She Magazine // january 2014


her baby was a newborn with diapers she had hand-sewn. But as Reese, now 18 months, grew out of those, Eddins began to build her “stash of cloth” by buying gently used diapers through a local Facebook swap page and purchasing them from Ogilvie-Honeas’ store, she said. Ogilvie-Honeas also sells green products related to cloth diapering, such as cloth wipes, all-natural detergent and allnatural static-reducing dryer balls made of wool. She plans to start cloth-diapering and baby-wearing classes in February. “I also have a friend who is a certified fitness instructor, and she’s going to come in and offer mommy-and-me workout classes,” Ogilvie-Honeas said. “I want this to be more than a store – a place moms can come with their kids and be with other moms, because we need that.” *she

Barb Newton guides First Presbyterian Preschool with her wealth of experience and faith in the future

Barb Newton swears that since she started her journey as director of First Presbyterian Preschool, she hasn’t really worked a single day. That was 20 years ago. “There is a saying that if you use the gifts you’ve been given, it’ll never feel like work,” Newton said. “And this is something I care about, so it doesn’t feel like work.” As director, Newton overseas daily operation of the school that celebrates its 60th anniversary this month. She manages a staff of 30, and the school has an enrollment of more than 160 students and more than 20 children in its Wee Care program. She also sits on many church and community boards, such as the Columbus Council for Youth Development and the local chapter of

28

She Magazine // january 2014

Indiana Association for the Education of Young Children. However on any given day her job may also entitle her to comfort a crying child or clean a bathroom stall. “I do a little bit of everything,” Newton said, with a broad smile. “Whatever needs to be done. Every day is different, and I think that’s why I love it so much.” Her bubbly demeanor and positive outlook on life are as infectious as her enthusiasm for early childhood learning. “It’s so nice to work with a leader who is truly passionate about what she does,” said Diana Gambaiani, administrative assistant for First Presbyterian Preschool. “Barb is such a champion for children and is very forwardthinking when it comes to early childhood education. She takes so much initiative to do what is right for our children and their families. “Aside from being such a big-picture thinker, I have seen her spend her entire morning comforting a child through his


school day because he’s having a hard time adjusting. She’ll drop anything for a child in need. It’s hard not to be excited about what we do when working with Barb.” Gambaiani recalled an experience when the school was under a tornado warning that she says epitomizes what Newton “is all about.” “The lights were all off, so all of the teachers had flashlights. The children were understandably very scared, and some were crying. Barb proceeded to have the teachers shine their lights on her as she danced and sang up and down the hallways to ease their fears until we got the all-clear,” she said. Although Newton now can’t envision life without First Presby (as many affectionately call the school), the Columbus resident and mother of three admits she never expected to be celebrating her 20th anniversary as director. “It’s just flown by,” she said. The Pennsylvania native earned a degree in elementary education with a specialty in speech and hear-

SAVE

ing therapy from Purdue University, where she met her husband, Rich, a dentist. She taught in northern Indiana and at Southside Elementary School once the couple moved to Columbus in the early 1980s. She left teaching to be a stay-at-home mom to her children, Meredith, Jordan and Cole. Once Cole was old enough, she enrolled him at First Presby and began teaching the 2½-year-old class. She became the director the following year.

“I really have a passion for early childhood intervention, and my background in speech and hearing therapy plays a big part in what I do,” Newton said. “It’s amazing how everything falls into place like that when you really have faith.” She is also fascinated with brain research. “It is amazing how pliable the mind is from ages 0 to 5,” she said. “It just soaks everything up like a sponge. It’s so exciting to watch.” That’s why under her direction, the preschool is constantly evaluating its processes and class offerings. Recently First Presby added enrichment classes available in the afternoons that focus on reading, math, science and art. Newton also makes it a point to observe individual students in their journey through the school to ensure they’re getting the most for their specific needs.

“We try very hard to develop those areas where a student might have a weakness and build on his or her strengths at the same time,” she said. There are 19 languages spoken by staff and students at the preschool, and it’s this ethnic diversity that excites Newton on a daily basis. “Each person that comes through the door makes an impact, and we’re making change all over the world,” she said. “Many of these children are here with families that are just in the country for a short time, but they’re taking some of what they learn here back to their country and vice versa, and that’s the global effect we strive for. “It’s so much bigger than we are.” This all-inclusive setting came with the inception of the school, as a mission of First Presbyterian Church, in 1954. It was open to anyone regardless of race or socioeconomic standing. “It was very forward-thinking,” Newton said. And as director for a third of its existence, Newton continues to embody that mission, according to members of the congregation. “As the congregation seeks to live out a mission of serving children and families of all income levels, showing Christian hospitality to diverse cultures, and helping preschoolers to develop with social skills and values consistent with our faith, who could be better than Barb to lead that work and connect us with it?” said First Presbyterian Church pastor Scott Hill. “She has the passion, the skills and the commitment. Right now she serves on the session, the church’s board, so she is a key leader in both realms.” And when it comes to taking credit for such an enriched environment, Newton, not surprisingly, declines. “I couldn’t do what I do without my staff,” she said. “They are dedicated, loving, kind people who do this out of the love in their hearts.

We are like family.” *she

Their competition has ended, but these local women are sticking to their plan for living healthily By shannon palmer photos by carla clark

T

he 12 women who competed in the Strong, Healthy, Empowered campaign have finished the contest. However, their long-term goals to maintain healthy lifestyles through exercise and healthy eating habits continue. The winners were determined by the percentage of body fat each lost. Losing inches and weight were important, but the goals, trainers Ian McGriff and his wife, Megan, stressed to the contestants, were to reshape their bodies and their lifestyles. People can lose weight and build muscle at the same time; therefore, the scales aren’t always the best indicators of success. The program was meant to help the participants become stronger, feel more energized and understand healthy eating patterns.

She Magazine // january 2014

Armed with a food plan, the women committed to working out at least five days a week for three months. Throughout the program, the contestants formed bonds with one another and maintained that they weren’t in the challenge just to win, but to learn, and the emotional support from each other helped keep them motivated. These close relationships became most evident during the finale. Each contestant was able to speak to the group and share what was memorable about the challenge. “One of the biggest aspects of the program is the friendships that women make,” Megan said. “It bonds them in a way that will connect them forever.” Joan Miller, mother of four—

with her youngest child in first grade and her oldest in college—came in first by losing 10 percent of her body fat and three inches on her body. She also lost 17 pounds. “This was an incredible experience and we all worked as a team,” Miller said. “For me, having the plan in place and presented to me helped to keep me on track. I knew what was expected of me. The hardest part was having the willpower to avoid certain foods, and, of course, getting to the gym on certain days.” The McGriffs, she added, “really taught us all how to plan for trips, snacks and eating out. It’s about being prepared and keeping that willpower.” The second-place winner was Susan Luehrs; Nichole Young took third place.

Luehrs, who relocated to the Columbus area three years ago, lost 9.94 percent of her body fat throughout this challenge. She took part in the contest, she says, because she knew she needed to find a gym and to get motivated to get healthier, but she hadn’t done it yet. As a mother of three grown daughters, and grandmother to five, the goal to get stronger and keep up with “the kids” was also a strong motivator, she said. “For me, it (the difficult part) was just getting started with a workout routine and getting used to working it into my schedule,” Luehrs said. “Being in the program, I knew I had to keep pushing myself, and each week I found myself getting stronger.”

For others thinking about adopting a new workout routine, Luehrs offers this advice: “You will amaze yourself by what you can really do, if you set your mind to it. Stay positive and just tell yourself, ‘I will get there if I keep working at it.’ Most important: Take the time for yourself. You deserve it.” Luehrs also discussed the new friendships she formed during the contest. She still meets with the other women to continue working out, though the contest has now ended. Nichole Young lost 18 pounds and dropped a pant size during the competition. Married for 12 years and a mother to two young daughters, Young said that working out and eating healthily were not always high on her priority list. She

decided that applying for this challenge would be the extra push she needed to get moving. “With Ian and Megan’s help, and my co-contestants, I really learned how to take time out for me again,” she said. “Through this program I have learned how to control my sweet tooth, plan my meals and eat much healthier, as well as how to work out. I also now have much more energy, and this is really a win-win for me as well as my whole family.” Ian said this year’s group of contestants is dedicated to getting and staying healthy. The women all understand the longevity of the program, and he believes they will continue to practice what they have learned in the past three months. “This is about creating a lifestyle that will allow them to enjoy life and stay healthy,” he explained. “The two can go hand-in-hand. It's about learning how to be OK with indulgences, understanding that it’s OK to miss a workout but to get back on track the next possible day.” The 2013 Strong, Healthy, Empowered contest was sponsored by The Republic, Tipton Lakes Athletic Club, Bob Poynter GMC, Dental Solutions of Columbus, Coca-Cola Smart Water, Raft to Rafters and Hilliard Lyons. *she

Jennifer Lawrence accepts her Oscar for best actress in a leading role for "Silver Linings Playbook." 36 She Magazine // january 2014

It’s not always easy being an Oscar winner.

W

hen Jennifer Lawrence returned to the set of “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” after winning the best-actress Academy Award for last year’s “Silver Linings Playbook,” she was treated to a round of applause. Then the teasing began. “I kind of wish just the ‘Hunger Games’ group didn’t know about (the award) because anytime I mess up my lines, Woody (Harrelson) is like, ‘Ya better give that Oscar back!’” said Lawrence.

“But when I got back, I told everybody that things were going to be very, very different,” the actress said, puffing out her chest before bursting into a bout of laughter. “The applause was sweet, but really it was like, ‘Let’s move on.’” And move on she did, as heroine Katniss Everdeen in the “Hunger Games: Catching Fire” sequel. Although the role isn’t traditional Oscar material, playing a bow and arrowbearing fighter in the screen adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ best-selling trilogy also isn’t hurting Lawrence’s established Oscar track.

She Magazine // january 2014


“I don’t really look for something (like Oscar potential) when I sit down to read a script,” Lawrence said. “There is not really a lot of thought. It’s a bizarre instinctual and emotional thing that just hits me.” Able to tackle dramatic and comedy roles with ease — both in studio blockbusters and smaller independent films — Lawrence says her continued universal success wasn’t by design. “It just sort of happened, and everybody complimented me on it,” said the actress. “I started out in indies, and I always imagined myself being in smaller movies for the rest of my career. Then ‘Hunger Games’ came along, and I was in a big pickle. I would have done it in a heartbeat if it were an indie, but it was giant. I had to take a few days to think about it.” Lawrence accepted the role largely because of her fondness for the strong-spirited lead character. “The stakes are high for her,” said the actress. “It’s exciting to have a female hero like this. It says a lot about our society.” Though she was already on Hollywood’s radar after starring in the acclaimed 2010 drama “Winter’s Bone,” which gained her an

Oscar nomination, Lawrence said “Hunger Games” raised the bar. “It took everything to a different place that I could have never imagined. And the (Oscar) did wonderful things for my career. I’m just rolling with it.” Deemed Hollywood’s “normal” girl, Lawrence’s accessible personality contributes to her demand. She endearingly stumbled while accepting her Oscar last February. She refuses to starve to fit the entertainment industry’s ideals of beauty. And at the Nov. 11 premiere of “Catching Fire” in London, Lawrence averted from the red carpet to embrace a teary-eyed fan in a wheelchair. “It’s refreshing,” said Lawrence’s “Hunger Games” co-star Liam Hemsworth of the actress’ disposition. “She’s not trying to be anything she’s not, and she’s got one of the biggest hearts of anyone I’ve ever met.” Adds “Catching Fire” director Francis Lawrence (no relation): “Jen is such a downto-earth goofball that she sets the bar for ev-

erybody. She doesn’t take herself too seriously. She’s able to do an intense scene. Then she’ll stop and joke. It’s pretty rare to be able to do it to the level that she can.” Does she take pride in being so relatable? “Not really because I never really meant to,” she said. Lawrence currently shares the screen with veteran actors Robert De Niro and Christian Bale in David O. Russell’s 1970s corruption tale “American Hustle.” She admits working with the seasoned cast made her nervous. “But Christian is the nicest and made me feel so normal and welcome,” said Lawrence. The film was also a chance to again work with Russell, her “Silver Linings” director. “He’s like creative epinephrine,” she said. Next up for Lawrence will be appearances in “X-Men: Days of Future Past” and “Dumber and Dumber To.” And as if she wasn’t busy enough, Lawrence will soon go behind the camera as producer of the adaptation of Jeanette Walls’ 2005 best-selling memoir, “The Glass Castle.” ‘‘I don’t know if I will be any good,” Lawrence said, “but I’m trying it.” Feeling “very satisfied” with the course of her career thus far, Lawrence said she’s yet to reach her professional sweet spot. “I don’t feel like I’ve gotten to a place where I am like ‘Oh, yes!’” said the actress. “But I’ve always just had, fortunately, a very relaxed way about all of it.”

Mushroom Bolognese with Whole Wheat Penne

Serves

6

Preparation time: 15 minutes Total time: 1 hour

2 tablespoons olive oil 1 medium red onion, finely chopped 3 carrots, finely chopped 2 celery ribs, finely chopped 3 garlic cloves, minced (8-ounce) package mushrooms, coarsely chopped ¾ cup dry red wine 1 (6-ounce) can tomato paste 1 (14.5-ounce) can fat-free, reduced-sodium chicken broth ½ cup fat-free half and half ½ teaspoon salt ½ cup plus 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese 6 cups cooked whole wheat penne pasta

42

She Magazine // january 2014

In a large, heavy pot, heat olive oil over medium heat and sauté the onion, carrots, celery and garlic, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Add the mushrooms and red wine and cook until the wine has almost evaporated, 12 to 15 minutes. Add the tomato paste, stirring occasionally until the mixture is lightly browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Add the chicken broth to loosen pan renderings. Add the half-and-half and salt and allow the sauce to simmer until it is thick and creamy, 10 to 15 minutes. While sauce is cooking, prepare pasta according to package directions, omitting the fat and salt. To serve, top 1 cup cooked pasta with ¾ cup Bolognese and sprinkle with 1½ tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese.


>> Don’t be discouraged by the long recipe. Once you prep all the ingredients and roast the vegetables, the lasagna goes together fairly quickly.

Roasted Vegetable Lasagna Preparation time: 45 minutes / Total time: 1 hour, 30 minutes 3 cups sliced zucchini 3 cups sliced mushrooms 3 cups eggplant, peeled and quartered 2 red peppers, seeded and sliced 5 tablespoons olive oil, divided 3 teaspoons dried oregano, divided ¾ teaspoon salt, divided ¾ teaspoon ground black pepper, divided 8 cups plum or Roma tomatoes, quartered 3 cloves garlic, peeled, sliced ½ teaspoon fennel seed 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes 2 teaspoons sugar 1 container (15 ounces) low-fat ricotta cheese 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped Nonstick cooking spray 9 no-boil lasagna noodles

Serves

10

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Have ready 2 large, sided baking sheets, such as a jelly roll pan. On one baking sheet place the zucchini, mushrooms, eggplant and red peppers. Drizzle with 3 tablespoons olive oil, 2 teaspoons oregano, ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon black pepper and toss to coat. On the other baking sheet, toss the tomato wedges with the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, garlic, remaining 1 teaspoon oregano, fennel seed, ¼ teaspoon black pepper and red pepper flakes. Place both in the oven and roast uncovered for 15 minutes. Turn the vegetables over and bake an additional 15 to 20 minutes. Remove roasted vegetables and roasted tomatoes from oven. Carefully place the tomatoes and all pan juices in a bowl and add the sugar and remaining ¼

teaspoon salt. Mash the tomatoes to create a sauce. In a medium-sized bowl combine the ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese, ¼ cup Parmesan cheese, parsley and remaining ¼ teaspoon black pepper; set aside. Coat a 9-by-13-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. To begin layering the lasagna, place about 1/3 cup of tomato sauce in the baking dish, spreading to cover the bottom of the dish. Top with 3 noodles, half the ricotta cheese mixture, half the roasted vegetable mixture and one-quarter of the tomato sauce. Begin again with 3 noodles, remaining cheese mixture, remaining roasted vegetables and remaining 3 noodles. Top noodles with remaining tomato sauce and a ¼ cup Parmesan cheese. Bake lasagna uncovered for 30 to 35 minutes or until edges are bubbly and the cheese topping is golden brown.

One Pot Beef Stew Preparation time: 15 minutes Total time: 2 hours, 30 minutes

Place the flat iron steak in the freezer for 20 minutes to make it easier to cut into even cubes. Patting the meat dry with paper towels before browning helps develop a nice sear on the beef cubes, sealing in the juices. 1 pound flat iron steak or lean beef stew meat, cut into ½-inch cubes 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour 1 tablespoon canola oil ¼ cup sherry 1 cup fat-free, reduced-sodium beef broth 2 cups onion, cut into ½-inch chunks 2 cloves minced garlic 5 carrots, peeled and sliced 4 celery ribs, sliced 1 (8-ounce) package mushrooms, quartered 1 (14.5-ounce) can no-salted-added diced tomatoes, undrained 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce ½ teaspoon dried thyme 1 teaspoon paprika 2 bay leaves ½ teaspoon ground black pepper 1 tablespoon cornstarch 2 tablespoons cold water ½ teaspoon salt

Chicken with Cherry Balsamic Glaze Preparation time: 5 minutes / Total time: 30 minutes 1 tablespoon trans fat-free margarine Serves 1 tablespoon olive oil ¼ cup all-purpose flour ½ teaspoon salt, divided ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper, divided 4 (4 ounces each) boneless, skinless chicken breasts, pounded to 1/4-inch thickness ½ cup cherry preserves 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar 2 tablespoons slivered almonds, toasted

4

In a large nonstick skillet, heat the margarine and oil over medium heat until margarine melts. In a shallow dish or pie plate, combine the flour, ¼ teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper. Dredge the chicken breasts in flour and sauté until golden brown on each side and cooked through, about 5 minutes on each side. Remove the chicken to a serving platter and keep warm. In a small saucepan, heat the cherry preserves and balsamic vinegar until warm. Season chicken breasts with remaining salt and pepper, top with cherry sauce and sprinkle with toasted almonds.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Coat beef with flour, shaking off excess. In a large Dutch oven or other stovetop and oven-safe pot, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the beef and sauté until browned on all sides, about 5 minutes. Remove beef from pot. Add the sherry and broth to the pot, loosening the bits from the bottom of the pan. Add the onion, garlic, carrots, celery, mushrooms, tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce, thyme, paprika, bay leaves and black pepper. Add browned beef. Stir to combine, cover and place in the oven for about 2 hours or until meat and vegetables are tender. Remove from the oven and place on stovetop. In a small bowl or measuring cup, combine the cornstarch and water until dissolved. If you want to thicken the stew, mix the cornstarch mixture into the stew and allow to thicken, stirring constantly, over medium heat. Stir in the salt and remove bay leaves. Each serving yields about 1 cup. Cook’s note: You can serve this stew on its own or with a crusty multigrain baguette, yolk-free egg noodles or brown rice. *she

Snowstorm season. Milk and bread emergencies. Winter wonderland. Chaos. Humans need routine. Kids need school. Grownups need a break from the kids. So how, then, are we expected to cope when our regimented lives are disrupted by blizzards? Our system breaks down. Predictability goes by the wayside as we frantically try to adjust our programmed lives and scramble to secure child care, alternative transportation arrangements and snow removal logistics. Man, when the whole program gets switched up by Mother Nature, my brain gets blindsided. Turns out I have it easy. I am the de facto child care on these days because I work at a school.

work is that ugly reality that goes like this: If you don’t work, you don’t make money. That makes us very lucky. I honestly don’t know how the rest of you do it. I mean, the inclement weather season is crazy enough for my family, even with my employment situation. To make my situation even more enviable, I have parents in town. On the occasions where I can’t cover the shift, my parents usually can. Finally, we have an incredible baby sitter who can cover these days at a moment’s notice if needed. Having a three- layered “snow day safety net” makes snow days and delays downright, almost, stress-free. I get to spend these days exactly the way they were intended to be spent: in either

pajamas or snowsuits, with a book or a football, making soup or Lego creations. There’s always a snow football game, sledding, hot cocoa (and many extra cups of coffee for me). There are extra dog walks and plenty of time to do homework and watch cartoons. Occasionally, I’ll even do some schoolwork. But there are always three boys there to provide great company and make lots of messes. We’re in good spirits on these days. My boys and I enjoy friendly rivalries and competition with one another (turns out we’re all a little competitive). Over four snowy December days I demonstrated to them how to be a gracious loser as they beat me four straight times in snow football. My work schedule allows me a lot of time with them on a regular basis; the snow days make me extra lucky to have even more time — guy time — to be with them. Snow days are good days. Again, though, I realize how flexible my family’s situation is. Single-parent homes, parents with a limited support network and people who can’t miss work – I can’t imagine what a challenge it must be to figure out child care on snow days. Stay-at-home moms have an abundance of time with their kids and need time away from them in order to stay sane. It’s got to be tough. As the heavy weather tapers off, there’s the inevitable two-hour-delay day or two, which means that I get to take the boys to school. How rarely that happens is evidenced by the fact that I often take the wrong route given the nuances of morning traffic, and I don’t really even know what time preschool drop-off takes place. How do I know how good I have it to be No. 1 on the Snow Day Contingency Plan? On a recent delayed day, when I dropped off my littlest at preschool (10 minutes early — how was I supposed to know?), he planted a big kiss on my cheek. Those snowy days are for building more than snow forts. They’re for building relationships, too. *she

“I Am Malala,” by Malala Yousafzai and Christina Lamb

When the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley in Pakistan, one girl spoke out. Malala Yousafzai refused to be silenced and fought for her right to an education. On Oct. 9, 2012, when she was 15, she almost paid the ultimate price. She was shot in the head at point-blank range while riding the bus home from school, and few expected her to survive. Instead, Malala’s miraculous recovery has taken her on an extraordinary journey from a remote valley in northern Pakistan to the halls of the United Nations in New York. At 16, she has become a global symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest nominee ever for the Nobel Peace Prize. “I Am Malala” is the remarkable tale of a family uprooted by global terrorism, of the fight for girls’ education, of a father who, himself a school owner, championed and encouraged his daughter to write and attend school, and of brave parents who have a fierce love for their daughter in a society that prizes sons. —Viewpoint Books 48

While summer is all about fighting humidity, the tables are turned when winter arrives and defending against dryness and static becomes the priority. As temperatures drop, your hair may become extra dry, brittle and full of static. What can you do to help your strands fight off the cold? Here are a couple of helpful tips to add to your regimen before resorting to rubbing dryer sheets over your head. Use a protein based hair conditioner for chemically treated hair. Chemical treatments, such as color, texture, etc., lift the cuticle to penetrate the hair, which allows moisture to escape and can alter its protein structure. These effects can be heightened in the winter. To revive parched looks, use products with protein building ingredients. They can help find the space in each strand to deliver what it needs to seal your hair and prevent flyaways. Use a thermal hair protectant before heat styling your hair. Blow-dryers and flat-irons can fry off the hair’s cuticle, leaving it more likely to split and frizz. Those results are especially a problem on snowy/rainy winter days. A thermal protector is crucial to help repair the hair, but leaves it feeling soft and polished without the fear of continuous damage from hot tools and any daily wear-and-tear tugging that stresses your tresses. —Matthew Jackson, Parlor 424

Healthy habits

After the indulgence and stress of the holiday season, it’s more important than ever to adopt a healthy lifestyle routine of good, balanced nutrition and exercise. Consult with your physician on how to start and remember, no matter what exercise routine you select, start slowly so you don’t get burned out. When it comes to incorporating healthy foods into your diet, do the same. Start slowly, swapping some of those unhealthy indulgences for healthier choices, and before you know it, it will have become second nature.

Thinking about getting some tree work done? Winter conditions provide great value for many reasons.  Go to www. treesaregood.org to find certified arborists by location.  Your Purdue Extension office also keeps a list. —Extension educator Kris Medic
