Thought of the Day

I don't believe in morality, but I believe in ethical conduct as set out by His Holiness the Dalai Lama: "Ethical conduct = a way of behaving that respects others’ right to be happy".

sunday lunch

with smudged mascara from the night just passed, i am staring in awe from the window at a snowed-down london, and i feel like a cat. my lounge is reverberating with bright light. as the night will cast upon us, a much warmer light will cuddle us up - the light of our new red pendant lamps.

under valentina's suggestion, i have been browsing food/cooking blogs and made very interesting discoveries. the blogsphere is an infinite well. i so much prefer blogs from websites. they are much more personal and informative!

i got inspired and decide to make Orecchiette with Asparagus Cream and Bacon.


wash and cut asparagus up, discarding hard bottoms. cook them in a pot of water for 10-15 minutes. then put asparagus in a blender, add extra virgin olive oil, a splash of tomato sauce, salt and black pepper. in a pan cook the bacon with a drop of oil.

use the pot of water where you did the asparagus to cook pasta: add rock salt and bring water to a boil, add orecchiette and cook them until al dente.

when pasta is ready, serve it with red asparagus sauce and bacon, and sprinkle it with parmesan and chilly.
