When do you know you’re getting old? when your good friends have been in your life for double digits years! 😯 they’ve been in my life for a long time!
Yesterday, a surprise call from an old friend (10 years) reminded me that I’m really getting old. For example, my BFF that lives in Germany, I met her 14 years ago), another good friend in China Ling, I met her 28 years ago, another guy friend in China, I met him in 17 years ago… and I can keep counting. Except for my friends in the program, all others that I keep in touch are from childhood. However, realizing that didn’t make me sad. I feel grateful to have them in my life, even though we don’t live in the same country; we don’t communicate in a daily basis; we probably see each other once a year; but when we met, the magic is still there, as if the clock reverses to the moment when we last catch up. 😀 What makes me wonder is, why it gets more difficult to make real friends when we grow up?
ingredients: lettuce leafs, red pepper, tomato, celery, leek
olive, sesame oil, soy sauce, S+P, 1 tsp of sugar
the original recipe calls for turkey but I used canned tuna instead
this is Tj’s bran, I like that it’s very low in sodium, 70 mg for 1/2 cup.
- heat olive oil (1/2 tbsp), add celery, leek and tuna and cook for 5 min
- add chopped bell pepper and tomatoes, cook 2-3 min
- add 1 tbsp soy sauce, sugar, S+P
- turn off the heat, add 1/2 tbsp sesame oil
It was DELICIOUS~~~ fresh, crunchy and tasty!
Side dish was stir-fry of broccoli and romaine with this
olive leaves preserves in olive oil
very satisfying meal~~~
and even better, I found a ripe kabocha!!! 😆 Enjoyed the bowl of steamed kabocha in my Pjs. 🙂 I call that a good night~~~
