Thai Basil Spice

Thai Basil is one of the greatest herbs ever.  It is used in a lot of Thai and southeast Asian cooking.  It goes very well also with curry.  Many Asian restaurants in the US will use Thai Basil in their cooking.

Thai_Basil_0It is very simple to grow thai basil at home.  All you need is some dirt, seeds, water and of course some t5 grow lights.  These lights will help nourish the plant while it is growing. It is important to make sure that the plants get plenty of light from the led grow lights. It is also important that you water the plants every day. Plants need water to survive.  Follow these instructions and you are bound to have beautiful, lush thai basil growing in no time. You can share it with all of your friends and impress them with both your gardening skills but also your cooking skills.  You’re basically a ninja at this point. They will all love you and you will be the most popular person around.  Great job – you should be proud!

After you have impressed your friends you may want to show them around your house. This is important as they will get a chance to see your kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. It is important that they see your growing area so they know you grey the thai basil yourself.  They will probably ask you”Hey, you, cool guy. What are the best led grow lights available?”  When they say this you will be even cooler.  You should respond by saying “A magician never reveals his tricks” and walk out the door.

Total bass-ass.  Just like this guy:


Your Bread Game is Strong My Friend

Do you like bread?  I do.  Do you eat bread?  I also do.  I found a funny subculture on Reddit today called Breadit.  And you guessed it – it is all about bread.  Please find some of my bread findings below:

It’s not very pretty but I’ve finally perfected the taste

All Things Breadit

This is an amazing subculture.  Only with today’s technology can people with such randoms common interests discuss with each other on a daily basis.  Just 30 years ago these people would need to wait for a monthly meeting to discuss all things bread.  Even worse is that before that they could live their entire lives and never meet anyone interested in bread as much as they are!

1440657927273We should be ever so thankful for the technology that we have in our lives today.  It is a wonderful thing.  Maybe we should all try to make some bread to celebrate our advances in technology.  Or just make a sandwich.  Yum.

Everyone loves sandwiches.  And without bread sandwiches would really suck.  Especially the best sandwich ever – which is the hamburger.  Did you know that just a few weeks ago they officially announced that the hamburger was invented in Connecticut?  Yes – read this article here about Loui’s Lunch – who invented the hamburger.  very impressive!

I think I may go for lunch there today – or tomorrow.  I am in Miami right now so it probably won’t happen today.  But I can go to shake shack for a hamburger – that would be super good.  Thank you!
