Week of August 23 to 29, 2015
ARIES Time seems like an increasingly rare commodity. Everything is an emergency, at work or elsewhere. Your friends get you to relax a bit with some physical activity. TAURUS It’s possible that you get to plan a really interesting family trip. You need a vacation, so this is just right. Be sure to organize it way ahead of time. GEMINI Large-scale projects are always stressing, and your emotions are on edge. Perseverance is the key to success. Don’t be afraid of change. CANCER Consult those most closely invol- ved before coming to a decision. After long negotiations at work or elsewhere, you should reach an agreement that is to your advantage. LEO Your health is important to you; the time has come to take care of your- self. By changing a few life habits, you become more dynamic and your love of life becomes contagious. VIRGO You’re the star of the show in one way or another. You may take charge of a group or even defend the interests of your community. You are a very important person for some people. LIBRA The start of a new school year takes up a lot of your time if you have young children. Moving or making big changes at home are possibilities. SCORPIO You have plenty to say for yourself and you say out loud what others only dare to think. This has the de- finite advantage of correcting an unpleasant situation. SAGITTARIUS It wouldn’t be surprising if you’re wooed by the competition on a pro- fessional level. You do a lot of run- ning around for back-to-school stuff for your children. Be careful not to spend too much! CAPRICORN A new job or a new life is on the horizon. You’re really excited about some great opportunities. There’s no lack of action in store for you. AQUARIUS You may need a second coffee to kick-start the next few days. Where health is concerned, you’ll find the right treatments, which allows you to have a better quality of life. PISCES Stress is omnipresent. You have no choice but to face up to certain fears. Lots of people crowd around you but all they want to do is listen to you carefully.

DIRECTIONS: Snip through the fat strip on the steaks in 3 places, so that the steak retains its shape when grilled. Combine the red wine, onion, mustard, garlic, salt, and pepper. Lay the steaks in a shallow non-porous dish and pour over the marinade. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours. Remove the steaks from the refrigerator 30 minutes before you intend to cook them to let them come to room temperature. This is especially important if the steak is thick, so that it cooks more evenly and is not well done on the outside and raw in the middle. Sear both sides of the steak—about 1 minute on each side— over a hot barbecue. If it is about 2.5 cm (1 inch) thick, keep it over a hot barbecue and cook for about 4 minutes on each side. This will give a medium-rare steak—cook it more or less, to suit your taste. If the steak is a thicker cut, move it to a less hot part of the barbecue or further away from the coals. To test the readiness of the meat while cooking, simply press it with your finger—the more the meat yields, the less it is cooked. Brush the mushrooms with the olive oil and cook them alongside the steak for 5 minutes, turning once. When you put the mushrooms on the grill put the rosemary branch, if using, in the fire to flavor the meat slightly. Remove the steak and set aside to rest for 1-2 minutes before serving. Slice the mushrooms and serve immediately with the meat. Recipe and photo: 1000 Low Fat, Salt, Sugar, Cholesterol – Healthy Recipes, Parragon Publishing.
