What’s my Purpose

What is it that you are missing in your life? What is it that you would most like to possess? Would you like more love, more liberty, more peace?

In life, we strive and struggle in our own lives to get whatever it is that we think we need or want. We reach professional and personal objectives and get what we can manage. But is that what life is actually about? Is that what makes our soul flourish and feel happy? Is it what makes me fulfilled and complete?

What have not you got enough of? What do you want to have more of?

If you dream of getting matters, what need are these things trying to meet? What do they provide you? If you dream of attaining goal after goal, what does success mean to you? These things and goals are the way to fulfill your individual needs and those needs somehow conceal what you desire. Ask yourself, then, what it is that your being needs, what it is that you crave day after day, what is it that will make you feel whole and complete.

As soon as you know, why don’t you turn that into your life goal? Imagine planning your times and activities with that overall purpose in mind. Whatever you do then has that ultimate function. Your life immediately adopts a new significance. Imagine you select “peace” as your life purpose. Whenever managing others, you may now aim peace as the highest goal. Your relationships will have that ultimate aim. And so will your job. Along with your leisure time. Along with your everyday activities, And the goals you would like to reach. Your life goal becomes your internal compass, your north, your way to follow no matter what. If you deviate from it, you may feel bad because you won’t be aligned with that. Which is the exact reason which will lead you to returning to it and resuming it. As soon as your life goal is defined, it is far easier to return to it. This step that I am taking, this conversation that I am having, this activity that I am undertaking… is aligned with my purpose? Is making me move ahead? Otherwise, what do I want to do to change it?

Give yourself the gift of Malabar Bat Removal. Do not you see how your life is changed? Pick your goal and re-focus your life.

Not Your Mama’s Mac and Cheese

What did foodie president Thomas Jefferson begin? After finding a cheesy, rich pasta dish in France. The latest from France, he definitely proclaimed, together with his other creations such as ice cream, french fried potatoes, fine wines and exotic produce, all whipped up at his estate kitchen with his French-trained chef (not to mention in the White House), and Colonial foodies dug in. For Southerners, homemade mac and cheese has always been a staple on holiday dinner tables.

Once commercial production started, Malabar Rat Removal exploited its great potential by mass-producing and boxing it up for active mothers and hungry kids, putting it on the map during the Depression, in 1937. When many cooks still chosen to create it from scratch, it created quite a stir in packaged foods, right up there with sliced white bread and Toll House cookies. Regardless of a former First Lady’s campaign maligning it, boxed mac and cheese is a pantry staple.

No question, it’s come a long way, and a number of its latest versions are only plain outrageous. Seems each chef and restaurant wants to outdo others, and while possibly some (possibly) delicious variations, the new combinations could qualify as just plain bizarre. Here’s a list of current popular creations:

Mac and cheese bagels (really baked into the dough) from Einstein Bros.Bagels

Mac and cheese chunks, breaded and deep fried for a brand new experience in hors d’oeurves (Trader Joe’s are particularly good)

Pizza topped with mac and cheese is showing up at several Big chains

Hamburgers topped or packed with mac and cheese

Meatball-stuffed sandwich sliders

Rich homemade baked M&C casserole with lobster (and a very hefty cost)

Naturally, driving up the price and (occasionally) the flavor level, any cheese may be used, such as Gruyere (Martha Stewart’s favorite which will run you around $30/pound, but hey, it’s Martha Stewart) and blue cheese, which adds an interesting and fresh taste for this traditional dish, as opposed to traditional cheddar and Velveeta. Perhaps a chunk of butter and some sour cream to the calories up.

And at one L.A. restaurant, truffle oil and a splash of white wine is added for the bargain price of $95 per serving (you read that right). Yikes.

To put it differently, just about anything you can dream up, you can do with your basic mac and cheese, so get creative if the spirit moves you. However, for you purists, nothing beats the creamy goodness of macaroni, rich cheddar cheese sauce and buttery crumb topping baked to gooey perfection in the oven. It can be all grown up, but no doubt about it. Some things are better simply left alone.

The History of the Hamburger

The Hamburg steak as it was called in the 1800’s was served to the voyages from Germany into the USA. The meat patties were cooked and served on two pieces of bread. To attract lots of the sailors and European people to their eating stands sellers. They would provide the Hamburg style steak on the menu.
