CHAPTER 2 ~ SETTLING IN
Living the dream
I get to try so many new things in Hawai'i. A recent favorite is lilikoi, known in the West as Passionfruit. My yoga teacher brings them to class to share. They are so tasty; sort of tangy, tart, yet sweet - hard to describe.
Inside the lilikoi you'll find pulp, juice, and seeds. I eat everything. I've learned that if I cut the top off much like a soft boiled egg, I retain most of the guts. Otherwise, it spills out.
Some people don't like the seeds. I find them interesting - they add a nice crunch.
While I was wandering around in my backyard, I found this flower. The Internet says that it's called Tallandsia Cyanea. Looks like something a little girl would dream up. It's a bromiliad - air plant.
Google is my new best friend. I can't yell through the walls to ask people questions anymore, so I go on-line to get my questions answered.

I've resumed cooking again after a 10 year hiatus. Oh, I cooked now and then in Racine, but not often. The girls always liked my spaghetti sauce, made from scratch.
One of my Italian bosses chided me for using canned tomato products, because his mother and wife made their sauce from raw tomatoes. Okay, I concede that I use some modern conveniences! Here's the recipe if you want to try it out.
It tastes better if you put a glug of red wine in it. Gives it a bit less acidy taste. Add it when you add the tomatoes. There's plenty of time for the alcohol to evaporate, leaving just the melded flavor.
