Self Reminder 1:
In those pitch-black eclipse nights, darkness will fold your soul like a thick-as-a-brick, deep, dense, thorny blanket. Your misguided feet will step into the quicksands in some sandstormy nights. You will be lost in the saddest city lane. Tears will fall from your sand-soaked eyes like falling piercing rain droplets. But you must journey on. And pray to the ONE who rules the thunder. Soon you will see the star-studded sky and twinkling twilight. Pray hard.
Self Reminder 2:
Eat simple, clean and fresh for food in your plate has a marvelous, magical story to tell, a legacy to leave.
2 large garlic cloves, crushed
1 whole Lemon/Lime juice
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary leaves, finely chopped (you may use Thyme, Parsley or your choice of herbs instead)
Good pinch of salt
½ teaspoon crushed black pepper
1 teaspoon tomato paste/sauce (optional)
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil. Vegetable oil will work just fine
3 boneless, skinless chicken breast fillets, cut into cubes
3 Capsicum aka Bell Peppers -red, yellow, green- seeded, cut into pieces (optional)
1 Red onion, cut into cubes
3-4 wooden skewers ( soaked in water for a while to prevent from burning while grilling)
Mix first seven ingredients in a bowl.
Rub the paste on chicken cubes and let them marinate for 1 hour in the refrigerator. Remove from refrigerator and allow the meat to come to room temperature; it will take about 15 minutes.
Thread the chicken and veggies onto wooden skewers, then cook on a griddle/grill pan for 7-8 minutes each side or until the chicken is thoroughly cooked and golden brown. Turn the kebabs frequently and brush the marinade from time to time until evenly cooked.
Self Reminder 3:
If you have a candle, let others light off theirs from yours. Your light won’t glow any dimmer. Then like Fireflies in the night, twinkling love surrounds you.
