imageWithout even knowing it you gave me forever, even if it isn’t the forever we dreamed about.
You gave me love that runs deeper than any other element.
You gave me ever lasting love.
Love which is now one-sided but it’s still forever.
Forever love for you.
Thank you for the love you returned and thank you for the happiest years of my life.
I thank you for being you.
My forever love, my forever best friend, my forever soul mate, just my forever.
I will forever love you.


Tickle your taste buds

imageThis is a totally different blog to what I normally write, but hey ho, I feel like doing something a little different.

My brother in-law made me a delicious meal awhile ago.
I thought it may be nice to share it with you all in a hope that it may tickle your taste buds to.
So here goes

Thai Ground Pork with Salad or Rice.
2 pounds ground pork

2 garlic cloves, minced

2 small shallots, minced

1 large jalapeño, seeded and minced, plus sliced jalapeño for garnish

Juice of 1 lime, plus lime wedges, for serving

2 tablespoons Asian fish sauce

1 teaspoon light brown sugar

1 teaspoon Chilli sauce, plus more for serving

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1/2 cup chopped basil

1/2 cup chopped mint

1/2 cup chopped coriander

Salt and freshly ground pepper

1 cup chopped salted peanuts (I leave these out)

1 large head Boston or other leafy lettuce, separated into leaves or rice.


In a bowl, mix the pork, garlic, shallots and minced jalapeño.

In a small bowl, whisk the lime juice, fish sauce, brown sugar and 1 teaspoon of Chilli sauce.


In a skillet, heat the oil.
Add the pork mixture and cook over high heat, stirring to break up the meat, until no pink remains, about 5 minutes.
Remove from the heat.
Stir in the lime juice mixture.

Let stand for 5 minutes.
Transfer the meat to a bowl and stir in the herbs.

Season with salt and pepper.


Top with the peanuts and sliced jalapeños. Serve with lime wedges, Salad or rice.
