Do not think that love in order to be genuine has to be extraordinary. What we need is to love without getting tired. Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies. — Mother Teresa (via awelltraveledwoman)

A Fascinating Glimpse of Life in the Wilderness
Seared salmon with sautéed white beans and bacon, basil sauce.
Submitted to MasterChef by frenchcuisse
Basil sauce - A handful of basil blended with vegetable oil. Season with salt & pepper.
White beans / bacon - Cook the white beans (I followed the instructions on the bag) then reserve. As soon as the salmon is almost cooked, (depending on how you like it) in a pan, cook the sliced bacon, add the white beans, chopped chives, and season with salt & pepper. Do not sauté for too long, plate the beans as soon as possible to prevent it from getting too oily.
Salmon - Score the skin, season with salt and pepper on both sides and sear skin side first on high heat then slowly reduce the heat to mid-high to prevent the salmon from burning. Once the skin is crispy, flip it, cook the flesh side for a minute or so until brown, then back on it’s skin. Add a good tablespoon of unsalted butter to the pan, a few sprigs of thyme, oregano, and a few cloves of garlic. Start basting the fish for a good 10 - 15 seconds. Finish cooking to your liking.
Basket - Salmon, bacon, yogurt, mint, basil, white rice, white beans, balsamic vinegar.
So, what if, instead of thinking about solving your whole life, you just think about adding additional good things. One at a time. Just let your pile of good things grow. — Attachments, Rainbow Rowell (via istruggleandemerge)
