Darjeeling, Bergamot and Walnuts


Releasing the Qi

RE: last email

Go for it dude. Would be happy to hear you'd be happy, in your Lamborghini or just doing whatever ...

You are a clever guy, I always saw that ... but emotionally you are very unstable, no wonder considering all the shit you've been through.

Still, one week you abuse me like I'm a piece of shit, like u'd stab me in the back first chance you got, the next week you abuse me like I'm the only friend you have who can help you, and if I don't let you come visit and do detox for a month and take care of you like you my own kid you gonna die and it'll be my fault.

Anyway, as a friend, I can't say "yeah let's do a business, buddy" cuz then someday u'd distrust me I only did it for the money. Use your model, start your own business and make a ton of money and start a family or move to Australia or do whatever makes you happy.

And when you're a big fat genius, please have pity on me in your time of glory that I couldn't walk your road, and please don't begrudge me that in your time of need I couldn't help you as you wanted.

peace and love, e.

The Great David Hume on Truth and Human Nature

For if truth be at all within the reach of human capacity, 'tis certain it must lie very deep and abstruse; and to hope we shall arrive at it without the utmost pains must certainly be esteemed sufficiently vain and presumptuous.

Cranberry-Feta Meatballs

For my own remembrance, what was cooking tonight and will be again on some occasion in the near future ;-)

In a bowl combine:

1 tsp - 1 tbsp fresh rosemary finely chopped
1 tsp - 1 tbsp chives finely chopped
1 medium sized onion finely chopped
1 tsp - 1 tbsp oregano
2 cloves organic garlic
90g feta cheese

Note: Pre-heat a teflon frypan to "5 of 9" setting with 4 tbsp rapseed, sunflower, or olive oil.

Don't stop adding! Keep adding, there's more! (to that same bowl):

1/3 cup dried cranberries, diced
5 grinds of pepper
500g organic ground beef

Meatballs need to be salty, so add about 2 tsp of salt, or let's say the meat forms a 20cmx20cm area, then about 20 salt crystals per cm^2. Thats how I estimate it: by crystals per cm^2.

Massage well. Form into ~8 balls about the size of a kiwi, slightly flatten, and place in the pan.

Drop 3 drops of Worcestershire sauce on top of each ball.

Cover and let cook ~8-10 min.

Add 3 tbsp red wine to the juice, flip the balls and give at least 30sec for sauce to return to boil, then moisten the balls by spooning the wined juice on them.

Cover and cook another 8-10 min.

With a total of 8 balls, serves 4 with 2 balls each.

Serve with Spaetzle or Tagliatelle larghe covered with diced parsley and walnut oil, and steamed vegetables (zucchini, carrot, cauliflower, green asperagus.

Of and I forgot to mention, you need to add to the above:

1 splash of darjeeling
1 mash of bergamot
1 dash of walnuts
