Recipe of the Month – February

Today we celebrate Women in Horror, with a tribute to a legendary queen of horror, Sigourney Weaver, star of enduring Alien franchise.

In Ridley Scott’s 1979 sci-fi horror masterpiece Alien, Sigourney relished the chance to bring a smart, no-nonsense, powerful leader to movie audiences during a time when women yearned to see a strong female presence on the big screen.  Lt. Ellen Ripley proved to be way more than just the final girl, and in the 1986 sequel Aliens, Sigourney continued to portray Ripley, this time as a badass survivor and the voice of reason in this crazy new world.  In her final action-packed showdown with the queen mother of all Xenomorphs, Ripley emerged as one of the greatest female kickass heroes on film, period.

So, in honor of Queen of Sci-fi and of Horror, I found a recipe for Date and Marizpan Alien Xenomorph Eggs over at Feast In Thyme.

There are 7 billion people on the planet. Giving away your heart to one of them, won’t kill you.

When Cupid’s arrow strikes, it’ll always be when you last expect it. So chill on feeling lonely or being upset about having nobody on Valentine’s Day.  Eros can’t see through that cloud of expectation!

When you do finally find your true love,  make sure it’s reciprocal and consensual. Any doubts could mean the romance is one-sided, that only leads to

Too much doubt will also kill your romance. Learn to trust your partner.

Strong communication is the always key to long-lasting relationships.

 

Love is mystique. Love is heartache. Love is forever.

Why should death do you part?  If love is indeed eternal, then couples shouldn’t let a little thing like the afterlife get in the way.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
