Ma'o Organic Farm Cooking Class

Fairly recently, I was invited to Ma'o Organic Farm to do a cooking class.

We made:

Colorful Pressed Salad
Poppy Seed Dressing
Green Rolls
Happosai (Lucky Chinese Vegetable Stir Fry)
Greens with Marinated Onions

There were 18 students all who learned more information about the types of foods they grow and how to use them. We had a blast.

Recipe for humble pie from Melanie Waxman

First you need to -

Wash out your ego every once in a while, as cleanliness is next to godliness not just in body but in humility as well. ~Abbe Yeux-verdi

Then you have to make sure you -

Swallow your pride occasionally, it's non-fattening! ~Author Unknown

Having done that you remember -

Humility does not mean thinking less of yourself than of other people, nor does it mean having a low opinion of your own gifts. It means freedom from thinking about yourself at all. ~William Temple

Then you realise -

A man wrapped up in himself makes a very small bundle. ~Benjamin Franklin

And you don't need to -

talk about yourself; it will be done when you leave. ~Wilson Mizner

When it comes to eating macro and playing sports -

Some people are born on third base and go through life thinking they hit a triple. ~Barry Switzer

Maybe stick with science coz -

When science discovers the center of the universe, a lot of people will be disappointed to find they are not it. ~Bernard Baily

If all else fails try this -

Modesty is the gentle art of enhancing your charm by pretending not to be aware of it. ~Oliver Herford

And in the end

It is well to remember that the entire population of the universe, with one trifling exception, is composed of others. ~Andrew J. Holmes, Wisdom in Small Doses


If every fool wore a crown, we should all be kings. ~Welsh Proverb

Enjoy and tell me how it tastes
Love Melanie!
