Fridge cleanout pork stir fry using the last of the pork shoulder, the last carrot, an unused half of an onion, the last of the asparagus, some basil and mint from the garden, and the usual mock-Thai seasoning of fish sauce, ketchup, lime, garlic, a little sugar, and lots of dried red chili flakes.

Served over jasmine rice.

What's dinnering with you tonight? :)

For me, some of it is acceptance of and gratitude for things I reasonably can't or shouldn't want to change, but a big part of it is also taking control of the aspects of my life I can control and making choices to be and do only those things I actually want for myself whenever reasonably possible. This actually means saying no to lots of things that other grown people think I should be or do. (Loving obligations to children are another thing.)

So much of our unhappiness comes from not making the choices we really want for ourselves - being and doing as we truly desire - because we don't want to deal with backlash from people who shouldn't have that much say about how we live.

Most days I find that there's no place I'd rather be, and that does feel like happiness to me.

I'm not sure what this filter was supposed to make me look like, but it's nymphish and fun and I like! 💫

Did not consider the changing angles of sunlight with the seasons when I planned for the bed where this Thai basil was planted to have more shade.

Tiny leaves, premature bolting - poo!

On the bright side, some of those tomato volunteers from the compost have been transplanted into same bed and will soon provide a nice canopy for my herbs.

In the meantime, this Thai basil still smells and tastes delicious, if a little extra peppery... ;)

This extra hot, extra lemongrassy instant tom yum is making my lunch at the moment.

This will be followed up with a scoop of Double Chocolate Fudge Brownie ice cream.

And that is just how we roll from time to time... ;)

You listen to the most sublime chords in either flamenco or jazz and think they couldn't get any better... until you fuse one with the other. Speaks directly to my soul. <3

MY THOUSAND ISLAND SLAW
(Click link below for recipe.)

This is an easy creamy slaw recipe that goes well with various American-style BBQs, and since we're in high BBQ and grilling season, I thought it a good time to share.

I call it a Thousand Island Slaw because the flavors mimic that sweet tangy savory creamy flavor of Thousand Island dressing. It's my eldest daughter's favorite slaw, which she requests whenever we make fried or roasted chicken or barbecue - she loves to snack on leftovers later in the day.

And I am all about whatever gets my family happily munching on raw veg.

Add some celery seeds (just about 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoonful), and it's great on a Reuben, too.

When you're selecting heads of cabbage, always check for tightly packed leaves and high density of water content. A good way to check for the latter is to pick up a few of the same size and select the one that's heaviest for that size. This means the cabbage is fresh and still has a lot of its original water content.
