Got Beef? Then Make Nam Tok!

This delicious and simple dish is bursting with s many flavors. Fresh mint leaves mixed with some lime juice lend to the dishes spicy kick.

A little fusion going on here…

#budomfoodforthought It feels like I am forever in between home or couch surfing at my children places. I feel I never have the time to grocery shop properly anymore.

Food Bites

During this time I have had more time home than I usually do. Which meant that I had no reason to say I couldn’t cook a great hot dish more often. Lately I have been eating too much fast food or on-the-go, so the chance to actually sit down to eat my meal was looking…… Continue reading Food Bites

So I bought some tomatillos because I have heard they make a good sauce. Except one thing, I know nothing about how to cook these pretty little vegetables? Fruit? Either way I wanted to make something different for dinner. I wanted to use my pork steaks and the tomatillos, but I needed a good recipe…… Continue reading It’s Chile Verde in Here

Supernatural or Madness: The Living and the Dead.

I found this show on the PBS channel and my love of the supernatural would not let me pass up the chance to see how supernatural the storyline might be. Let me clarify, while I am intrigued by the paranormal, I don’t enjoy cheap parlor tricks or weird diversion which does not help in creating…… Continue reading Supernatural or Madness: The Living and the Dead.

Riding Out Hurricane Harvey

The day is so sunny and bright it’s is hard to imagine that this storm left thousands homeless and at least 70 people dead in its wake. I didn’t cry at all during the storm nor when I saw the destruction of my home and belongings, only when my boss came to talk to me about the floods did I cry.

Houston Adventures: A “Wicked” Time at the Theatre

When I saw original Wizard of Oz on television as a youngster, I always wondered if there was some back story for the witches. I have always been fascinated by witches and their magical lives. So, when Maguire’s stories hit bookshelves I devoured them like manna from heaven.

Houston Adventures: Friday 13th equals Cheap Tattoos

Back in my adolescent years, I grew up watching the slasher flick Friday the 13th.

My grandmother, a devout, and practicing Catholic, even had advice on how to steer your day “curse…… Continue reading Houston Adventures: Friday 13th equals Cheap Tattoos

The Fall Of The Berlin Wall Was Not Everyone’s Cup of Tea

I am ashamed to say that in all my years of living in Germany I never went to Berlin and visited the sight of the Berlin wall. It is one of the things I kick myself for not doing while I had the chance. Why didn’t I take the time to check out one of the…… Continue reading The Fall Of The Berlin Wall Was Not Everyone’s Cup of Tea
