You know why I love to hang out with people who love food? Chefs, foodies, food bloggers etc., they try to get others to like the same things they love— food, by providing others with delicious meals. 5 senses are all working in tandem to attract people’s attention. All kinds of recipes in all regions all over the world are mixed & mingled to create ‘fusion’ cuisine. Soul food recipe can be applied to Thai food. Mediterranean food can be done with a bit of Japanese condiment. Italian food with a touch of Indian spices tastes wonderfully. No one can force anyone to like or dislike the food; it’s all about individuality, freedom and love. If there is any conflict in taste, food is the one thing people agree to disagree— peacefully.
On one clear day, the night falls and people look up to see how beautiful the sky has to offer. Here’s come an unknown person with a food truck. He parks close by, so he can charm people over with the aroma of his food. Maybe, not a lot of people like his food. Maybe, this crowd is not familiar with the spices he uses. Maybe, just maybe, he happens to park at the wrong place, and for any reason, he has a bad night. After that, he can either adjust the food to be better-suited to the crowd or he can change the location, in which he parks his truck. Under no circumstances that he should force the crowd to like his food. Under no circumstances that he should harm the crowd for disliking his food. When the rational one ‘serves up’ his thoughts & beliefs to the world, he prepare to accept both the positive and the negative. When the pathetic one does, well, he’s the pathetic one, what do you expect? #prayforPEACE
I am serving you today ‘spicy jalapeño & shishito peppers sauce on a burger top with pickled summer onion,’ and I hope you like it. The combination might turn you into a fart master, but it’s well worth it. Some of you probably won’t make it due to the side effect I mentioned, but I promise I’ll still like you because I am the rational one.
- 4 bunches summer onion, thinly sliced
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1 cup white balsamic vinegar
- 1 cup water
- a sterilized jar
- Add onion in the jar, set aside.
- Gently boil the water, then add salt & sugar, stir until dissolved. Let cool slightly, then add both vinegars. Pour liquid to cover the onion. Let cool to room temperature, and refrigerate for a week before using.
- You can also use the regular size red onion for this recipe.
- 1 lb. Shishito peppers
- 1/2 lb. Jalapeño peppers, halved & cored
- 5 cloves garlic
- 5 anchovy fillets
- 2 tbsp. white balsamic vinegar
- 3 tbsp. fresh-squeezed lime or lemon juice
- 1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 cup olive oil, extra if needed
- salt & pepper, as needed
- Preheated the oven to 400F. Roast both peppers for 20 minutes. Add everything, except olive oil, in a blender and blend until well-combined. While the motor’s running, drizzle the olive oil to the mix. Taste and add salt & pepper as preferred. Make 3 cups
P.S. I’m lost for words by what happened in Nice, but in my opinion, the world should not dwell on it for too long. There are enough of us to make a difference. Those thugs may continue to shock us with their abysmal stupidity and coward actions, but I hope we return their unconscionable act with kindness instead of war.
“You must not lose faith in humanity.
Humanity is like an ocean;
if a few drops of the ocean are dirty,
the ocean doesn not become dirty.”
Until next time, have a fantastic everyday
