What to do Now (5th Week of March)

What to do Now (5th Week of March)

Hi Guys. I’m just checking in again. It’s hard to believe that a whole week has passed since I posted Coronavirus, What to do Now. I “threatened” then to make this a regular thing so I’m following up with you today. 🙂 I hope you’ll stop by and check-in again, share any thoughts; maybe share what has inspired you this week & maybe let me know what I can do for you. 🙂 As usual, I have a few thoughts and opinions…did you expect any less? 🙂

 

 

I think for many of, the news last week that we surpassed China in the number of Covid-19 cases has been a shock. It’s a wake-up call, for sure. There’s been not only fear but also disappointment, anger and obviously and if you’re on the internet or listening to the news, you gotta know there’s blaming going on, all over the place.

I suppose a counselor might say those feelings are perfectly normal (I hope, anyway, because I have them, too) but also know that history’s a harsh mistress. Blame will settle where it’s deserved and we really have no need to help it along. It’s a rabbit hole (or maybe I should say “rabid” hole) we don’t want to go down.

Crying Tiger Sauce

Crying Tiger Sauce

The other day I posted a recipe for Waterfall Pork. It was outstanding on its own but one of the things that really took it next level is this simple little dipping sauce, Crying Tiger Sauce (Namchim Chaeo.) It’s fiery hot but tempered by a little sweet and it’s def a brew of flavors.

Quick Asian Pickled Cabbage

Quick Asian Pickled Cabbage

I’m so psyched about this Quick Asian Pickled Cabbage. It’s easy, it’s humble and it inspired a whole meal. This is a recipe that mimics some pickled cabbage I had once at a restaurant so maybe Asian “leaning” would be more descriptive. Honestly, though, I don’t think anyone will search for that!

Beef Guinness Stew from Simon Pearce

Beef Guinness Stew from Simon Pearce

I gotta tell ya about this recipe, an old family favorite, the Beef Guinness Stew from Simon Pearce. I pulled this recipe ages ago from either Bon Appetit or Gourmet; I think it might have been a write-in request and it’s been a St. Paddy’s Day celebration dinner and family fave off and on ever since.
