Scallop noodles – 1 cluster, cook, drain and cool
Solid light tuna in vegetable oil (99g) use the oil to mash eggs and avocado
Fresh garlic stem*, thinly sliced (to taste)
Fresh crisp lettuce
Sweet red pepper
Green onion and slices of sweet onion (to your taste)
2 hard-boiled eggs
1 large avocado scooped and mashed with the eggs
salt pepper to taste
mayonnaise 1 big tablespoon
Tossed together this is a great easy salad – other seasoning can be added as your taste dictates, ie, squeezed lime, ginger, wasabi…. it is your call.
Make this a day to remember, like a salad, how we put things together, the choices we make, all become a creation of our own doing…..
*garlic stems, I have only found at Asian groceries they are not chives, they are shaped like a pipe cleaner, taste is crisp, and can vary from mild to strong in taste. sold in bunches
Happy Wednesday everyone…. I was driving through a McDonald’s drive through for my ice coffee when I found myself beside a flowering hydrangea. Now I’ve gone past it often, but that day, it was changing into it’s fall colours. The summer white was giving way to the burnt peach/rust that will follow.
To remind you, this is what they look like in bloom early summer. This picture is from the bush on my front lawn. Hydrangea’s remind me of my Mother, she passed away last March, she was fond of the changing seasons, with each passing year of her time here on earth, she allowed nature to take its course, she would blossom in so many ways, it seemed to just happen. Whatever, whenever, she never lost her youthful glow, that came from within. Strength, determination, she held her ground.
This bush has been there for years, I always notice it, whether it is just its sculptured form during winter months, its fresh mint leaves come spring, or the first blossoms of another year.
My Mother is no longer here, but her presence is… When love is unconditional, no matter what… life/love combine, intertwine, harmonize.. like God it is everywhere, in everything we see and do. The sky is always there, weather can change, but the sky is always there.
Blessings my friends… may your world shine, love is everywhere…
Are you snug and warm?
Today is going to be very cold…
Is the partying all done? You ready now to hit the slops and exercise?
The turkey has been eaten, the desserts have been happily devoured … now you know its time to decide.
Which road to take. It is a brand new year, let’s set higher goals and work to improve ourselves. The Joy of Expression is in the Process. When each day is a new canvas, goals are much easier to attain.
The flowers of summer bloom forever in our hearts. Love is a constant in our lives, always and forever. Blessings now and always – Oyashikiri
