Daily FoodScopes - Thursday August 21, 2008

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Getting the rewards you want at work may be slow going today, but that doesn't have to mean other things have to be. When you get a less than cooked steak at dinner tonight, for example, send it back. You should get what you paid for.

Food will be a focus of your day, but when isn't it? Call on the recipes Mom taught you -- be it baked ziti or pad thai -- to dazzle at the company potluck luncheon, dinner party or family dinner. Tried and true will save the day.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)
With as much as you've been working, you'd think that your boss would have seen the light and give you a raise by now, right? Butter their bread with some of your famous baked goods. A little cupcake with cream cheese frosting might just send them over the edge.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Infuse your new project or plan with a foreign influence. Perhaps the craftsmanship of the Germans or sleek design of the Swedes? Dinner can benefit from this influence too. Savory meatballs and salty preserved fish can be tossed in with your staples for a new flavor profile.

Libra (September 23 - October 22)
Heavy concepts and possessive feelings have no place in this enlightened day. Fight the tendency to overcomplicate your life. This comes into play at the dinner table, where you should favor simple flavors -- an heirloom tomato or black bean and roasted corn salad.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
Romance is rarely a focus for you, but that's about to change. Treat your palate (and that of your lover) to a tasting menu of lust: Asparagus, quail eggs, oysters, almonds and avocado are all lush indulgences that will stoke your waiting libido.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
Take a cue from your Aunt Betty (or Uncle Fred) without sacrificing your innate eccentricities, today. So if your family (or roommate) has been begging for those creamy mashed spuds from the family recipes, throw your own twist on it with some strong gorgonzola or pungent chevre.
