"By telling you anything at all I’m at least believing in you, I believe you’re there, I believe you into being. Because I’m telling you this story I will your existence. I tell, therefore you are."

Not Yet Summer Greek Salad

It feels a bit silly to write out a recipe for this salad.  It’s mostly just handfuls of pasta, chopped tomatoes, cucumber and feta.  Where you see cups in the recipe below, feel free to just eyeball it and toss ingredients in by the handful. It’s more fun that way, really!

For the Dressing:

1/3 cup olive oil

3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1 tablespoon minced shallots

2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

2 teaspoons honey

sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper to taste

For the Pasta Salad:

5 cups cooked orzo pasta

2 cups de-seeded and coarsely chopped English Cucumbers

2 cups halved cherry tomatoes

1 heaping cup crumbled feta cheese

1/2 cup thinly sliced purple onion

1/3 cup chopped fresh basil

sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper to taste

I like to make my salad dressings in a mason jar with a tight-fitting lid.  If you don’t have a jar, you can also vigorously whisk the mixture in a large bowl.

In a medium mason jar combine olive oil, lemon juice, shallots, mustard, honey, and a pinch of salt a fresh cracked black pepper.  Secure the lid tightly and shake vigorously until emulsified.  Taste and season with more lemon, honey, salt, or pepper as necessary.  Set aside.

In a large bowl toss together orzo pasta, cucumber, tomatoes, feta cheese, onion, and fresh basil.  Season lightly with salt and pepper.  Just before serving, drizzle in the dressing. Taste and season accordingly.  Serve immediately.

Ashes Of Time by Wong Kar Wai
I always thought you two would be together, why didn’t you marry him?
Because he never said he loved me
There are things you don’t need to say
But it’s what i needed to hear. He was too sure of himself. He thought he was the only person I’d marry—he never imagined I’d marry his brother. When he asked me to elope with him on my wedding night, I turned him down. It was too late for him to win back my love I had decided that I’d never give in again ….…. do you know what the most important thing in my life is ?
Your son?
I thought so too, but as he grows up, i know he’ll be leaving me one day. Nothing is important to me now. I thought the words “I love you” meant something, I thought they meant a lifetime commitment—but looking back, nothing matters because everything changes.I thought, I was the winner, until one day I looked into the mirror and saw the face of a loser. I failed to have the person i loved the most to be with me in my best years. How wonderful it would be, if we could go back to the past .…
