Seductive Salmon Makes a Perfect Valentine's Day Dinner

I love preparing a romantic dinner for Valentine's Day. Cooking is one of the ways I show my love for my sweet husband, Michael. We've been married for 34 years, so I've had plenty of opportunities to create romantic meals, from breakfast in bed to late-night fireside suppers. What better time to prepare a heart-healthy meal than on the one day of the year that celebrates matters of the heart -- Valentine's Day? Roasted Salmon With Pomegranate Butter Sauce is a delicious way to make a special day even more memorable and provides the gift of good health. Salmon is low in mercury and high in omega-3 fatty acids. While 80 percent of all of the salmon sold is farm-raised, wild salmon is the best option. Eating two to three servings per week of foods (continued P3)

By Samantha Weaver It was noted American journalist, essayist, satirist and critic of culture H.L. Mencken who made the following sage observation: "Strike an average between what a woman thinks of her husband a month before she marries him and what she thinks of him a year afterward, and you will have the truth about him." It may seem odd, but the Drug Enforcement Agency supports, in a fashion, a publication that advocates the legalization of cannabis; the DEA has three subscriptions to the magazine High Times. There was a time when cartoon character Fred Flintstone appeared in ads for Winston cigarettes. In an anthropological study once conducted in Papua New Guinea, it was found that one in three adult deaths were the result of homicide. And it seems that those murdered were often targeted because they were suspected of practicing sorcery. There seems to be quite a rivalry between the towns of Rosehill, N.C., and Wilmington, Del. Both locales claim to be the home of the world's largest frying pan, with a diameter of 10 feet. This begs some questions, of course: How many eggs are being fried at once to require such a large piece of cookware? And what sort of stove is required to heat such a mammoth pan? In today's troubled economic times, you might not be surprised to learn that in his famed "Devil's Dictionary," Ambrose Bierce defined a corporation as "an ingenious device for obtaining individual profit without individual responsibility." According to estimates made by United Nations researchers, approximately 25 languages became extinct in 2008, meaning the last native speaker had passed away. *** Thought for the Day: "Democracy consists of choosing your dictators, after they've told you what you think it is you want to hear." -- Alan Corenk (c) 2009 King Features Synd., Inc.

THE KITCHEN DIVA (continued)

rich in omega-3 is a healthy choice.This recipe for roasted salmon is adapted from author Rick Rodgers’ newest cookbook, “Autumn Gatherings: Casual Food to Enjoy With Family and Friends” (Morrow Cookbooks). If you’ve never roasted salmon, get ready for a treat, as the heat from the oven seals in the flavor of the salmon much better than moist-heat methods like poaching or steaming. The pomegranate butter sauce is what makes this dish so deliciously unique. Pomegranate juice is fairly easy to find in most grocery stores, and the flavor marries beautifully with the salmon. Roasted Salmon With Pomegranate Butter Sauce is the perfect choice for a seductive Valentine’s Day dinner and the perfect way to combine heart-felt sentiments with heart-healthy benefits. ROASTED SALMON WITH POMEGRANATE BUTTER SAUCE The pomegranate butter sauce is a red variation of the classic French beurre blanc. Beurre blanc literally translated from French means "white butter." One important tip: Slowly incorporate the butter over very low heat so it softens into a creamy emulsion with the acidic base. If the heat is too high, the butter will simply melt. 1 (2-pound) center-cut salmon fillet, with skin 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon black pepper

Staying Motivated to Exercise

I've experienced a lapse in keeping my New Year's resolution. I started a walking program three mornings a week. I was excited to begin It was held in a heated indoor arena with a flat track. Two people from the Healthy Heart Program would be there giving advice and taking blood pressure, as well as leading the gentle exercise classes. It seemed perfect. And the first few classes were fun. I felt better after each class, energized and ready to face the rest of the day. Alas, I neglected to consider the human element -me. It appears that I need more encouragement than just the opportunity to put a check next to my name on the attendance list for every day I show up. Setting goals didn't help. Promising myself rewards for attending didn't help either. On the Internet I found companies that will send telephone reminders, some of which you can record yourself. The services, however, are expensive. Then there are computer software programs that will pop reminders up on the monitor. There's always the alarm clock, set to go off at the right time. In my case, the solution was a lot easier than signing up for a call-reminder service. Instead, I swapped phone numbers with one other person in the class. It was her idea because she also found herself lacking the right motivation to get to class. On even days of the month, I call her in the morning to ask if she's going to class. On odd days she calls me. Having to answer to someone else seems to be working. I've gone to enough classes in a row now that I don't think I'll start skipping them. It might be low-tech, but it's working.
