Definition: Tofish, Food Pairing, Food Combining, Spillover Effect

A method for identifying which foods go well together from a flavor standpoint

 

Food combining

Donating some Shopping Savings as “Random” Acts of Kindness

In some places, you can find people asking for money outside of stores, including grocery stores. Halifax is one of them. I’m not a fan of giving them money, to be honest, because I am not sure where that money ends up being spent. Yes, that’s judgmental because I worry about not being approving of it if I knew. But I’ll firmly defend that with it’s my money and I’ll do with I want with it. I might note, though, that I am just as judgmental towards giving money to bigger charities that do things like hosts lavish celebration parties they reached their goals, or pay their CEOs exorbitant salaries in the eyes of most.

All that judgment doesn’t mean I don’t give to others. I just take a different approach than most, one that requires more work, to know or plan on how to spend that money in ways I approve of. I work hard for it and save it, and I’m not about to give it away so people can become reckless with it, possibly even harming themselves rather than helping that thwarts my good intentions in the first place.

Steam Rice with Okra Instead of Just Rice

It’s gives it a nice additional texture when you eat it. Not really any new taste but that means you can sub it in with your favourite steamed rice recipe and it’ll just feel different when eating it. I’d suggest not using more than 3 okra per cup of water so the water composition doesn’t change too much and things can cook properly. I did this in a rice steamer, not pot, which would be a different story.
