May I Live in Peace and Love

May I be safe and free from fear

May I be care for myself with joy and ease

May I be cared for and supported

May I achieve my heart's desire

May I know in my heart that I am worthy of love

May I love myself

May I love myself as I would my friend

May I be loved and appreciated

May I awaken and be liberated from suffering 

Happy 2013


Yum Cai Dao...Delicious Egg Fried Salad

My newly found dish.
I have been eating this quite frequently because of my high protein diet and I can say this is so tasty, 
you will never look back after you have tried.

In Thailand, everyone makes it differently and last night it was the first time I ate it with minced pork. Please ignore the pork in this picture, as it is normally a recipe for 'vegetarians'. Over here vegetarians have fish and oyster sauce and are not as purists as the ones back home. But if you wish to put some minced pork, because it is actually delicious with it, go ahead and stir fry it for a minute or so {separately} and add to the salad when mixing it all.

You will need:

2 crispy fried eggs {still warm and fluffy} chopped in 6 chunks {or whole} and yolks cooked but not too much
1/2 sliced onion
1 wedged tomato
2 tablespoons of roughly chopped celery leaves and also some of the thin stalks that hold them {optional}
1 cup chopped lettuce {optional}
1 spring onion chopped in 1 inch pieces{optional}
1 tablespoon freshly cut coriander leaves {optional}

4 tablespoons fish sauce {nam pla}
4 tablespoons fresh lime juice
4 tablespoons of palm or demerara sugar {if using, and yes, it does make a difference}
1 or 2 red chilli bashed with a pestle and mortar
1 or 2  cloves of garlic 

Combine all dressing ingredients and bash them roughly on the mortar. Adjust to your taste. Mix with all the solid ingredients and serve immediately for a delicious side dish or a light and refreshing main meal you will never forget!!!!
