LETTER TO MY CRUSH.

Dear Chocolate,

You have been a comfort to me ever since I can remember. You are so easy to enjoy and you taste sooo good. Thank you for being so very satisfying every time we meet. We’ve shared some memories together; break-ups, movies with the kids….
You were there for me, when I was feeling down, when I was missing my family, you were right there. I’ve decided to have you in my recipe book, because you’re actually not that naughty (which is why I tend to have you so often over others).
You’re there for me when I just need a snack, and I’ve introduced you to my friends (who all love you, too!).
You’re the one thing in the world I don’t think I could ever get over. But you will forever be my crush.

Love Sonia.Xxx

LOVE & LUST.

8 MYTHS ABOUT MEN.

(MYTH 1).

MEN WANT TO DO THE CHASING.

The Truth.

Call it The Clooney Effect, but men today are into self-assured, educated women (more Amal than Marilyn). According to a match.com survey, which polled more than 5600 single men and women about love and sex, 90% of guys report being OK with a woman asking them out. (And good, because, seriously? It’s 2015.)

( MYTH 2).

MEN JUST WANT NO-STRINGS-ATTACHED SEX.

The Truth.

Not all men want NO-STRINGS-ATTACHED, and even those who do don’t necessarily want just that. “Like many other personality traits – extraversion – interest in casual sex varies widely among both men and women”. ” Some men aren’t interested in it at all. Some are interested in it during certain points in their lives “. The important thing to remember is that just because a person is into casual sex doesn’t mean he or she isn’t interested in love and relationships. One doesn’t preclude the other, and it’s very possible to want both.

(MYTH 3).

MEN DON’T HAVE A BIOLOGICAL CLOCK.

The Truth.

” Both sexes form pair bonds, both fall in love, both want to have children – especially before age 40 – and both want to raise them.” “Men are just as eager to do so as women.”

(Myth 4).

BIG FEET EQUALS BIG PENIS.

The Truth.

Sadly, there is no scientific proof that shoe size (or hand size or nose size) is a reliable indicator of what he’s packing.

(Myth 5).

MEN ARE COMMITMENT PHOBES.

The Truth.

Not so. Men want to introduce a partner to friends and family sooner than women do, they like public affection more and they want to move in sooner. ” There’s a crazy-cool biological reason for this. Because women are the “custodian of the egg” (aka we get pregnant), it’s adaptive for men to fall in love faster and get a woman off the market. So why does society portray men as commitment-phobes? Some blame it on men being hardwired to spread their seed, HE’S JUST NOT YOUR TYPE (AND THAT’S A GOOD THING), “It depends on where he is in life.” If a dude’s being flaky, it might mean he doesn’t want commitment at the time or… with you. (The fool!).

(Myth 6).

MEN CAN’T FAKE ORGASMS.

The Truth.

You thought we were the only ones capable of pulling a Meg Ryan? Nope. Guys can do it too. (It’s obviously easier to fake it when wearing a condom.) Because if the prevailing myth that men always orgasm, the pressure to perform accordingly can bebe “pretty intense”.

(Myth 7).

IT’S ALWAYS EASIER FOR MEN TO ORGASM DURING SEX.

The Truth.

Not only can men struggle with orgasm, there’s even a nice euphemistic name for it: DE (delayed ejaculation). ” Some men just have a higher threshold for orgasm.” But while ladies are blessed with multiple ways to get off during sex, men can’t exactly give themselves a hand while inside you – tough break, considering the most sensitive part of the penis is near the tip. What many women don’t know is that DE (and other forms of erectile dysfunction, or ED, which can be caused by antidepressants, stress, and alcohol) can affect young men.

(Myth 8).

MEN THINK ABOUT SEX EVERY SEVEN SECONDS.

The Truth.

Thinking about sex every seven seconds – that’s more than 8000 times a day! – would make men not only sex obsessed but,like, pretty severely impaired. Luckily for us ( and mankind?), the truth is much more moderate. Younger men, predictably, think about it a little more. Studies have shown men aged between 18-25 recorded almost 19 times a day. Which is still way less than 8000. (Phew!).

RELATIONSHIPS ARE KING.

WHAT DOES A VILLAGE NEED?

A leader. (That’s you.) A purpose. (That’s your market position or winning difference.) An idiot. (Don’t worry, one always shows up.) And a place to come together.

But give your village a place to get together. To know you better, and know one another better. A place where everybody knows their name.

Chicken Chop Suey.
It’s easy to make this perennial Chinese takeout favorite low-Gi. If you prefer, use a can of sliced water chestnuts instead of the bamboo shoots.

450g chicken breast.
2 tsp olive oil.
180ml chicken stock.
2 tbsp soy sauce.
1tbsp cornflour.
4 spring onions, sliced.
1stalk celery, thinly sliced.
1carrot, thinly sliced.
450g mushrooms , sliced.
1 can sliced bamboo shoots, drained and rinsed.
1 tbsp chopped ginger.

1. Thinly slice the chicken crosswise into bite size pieces; set aside.
2. In a large non-stick frying pan or wok, heat oil over a medium heat and cook the chicken stirring constantly for about 8 minutes or until golden and no longer pink inside. Remove to a plate.
3. Add oil to frying pan and cook the onions, celery, carrot and mushrooms stirring occasionally for about 5 minutes or until the vegetables are tender crisp. Return chicken to frying pan.
4. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together the chicken stock, soy sauce and cornflour. Pour into the frying pan along with bamboo shoots and ginger and cook, stirring for about 2 minutes or until the sauce is thickened and bubbly.

Makes 4 servings.
