Fair Go Bro
This brief medieval cookbook was found centuries after the Viandier, the most famous of the French medieval cookbooks. It was written under Philip the Fair, when meals were supposed to be simpler than in Taillevent's time, and so unlike the later cook's work, it is simply organized by types of food, not different services. Its author was unknown, though he was certainly a professional cook. The foods described include simple fare like beef and pork and more exotic foods like peacock, swan and lamprey; sauces like cameline (cinnamon) are also mentioned along the way. This new translation includes several modern recipes (redactions) based on those in the work, an introduction and extensive notes.
Do you ever wonder why some days are better than others? You wake up and wonder why did I get out of bed this morning? Think having the good life is really coincidence, luck, and favoritism? If so, you can see how this would leave you feeling powerless and chaotic, the good news is the good life is linked back to you. You look at your bank account and wonder why you do not have more money or when will your ship come in? You look at your relationships and wonder when will he show up or when will she leave? You have desires but most of you think your desires are contingent upon something or someone outside of you. Contingency desires are limiting and never a true reflection of your potential. Potential transcends logic. Your current state of affairs does not have to be your consistent reality. What is real? That which you give your attention combined with evidence to support your reality. If you wait until the evidence of what you want shows up before you feel better than you will be left with more waiting. Most people have the sequential order reversed for realizing their desires with an attitude of "let me see it then I will believe it." What if you were able to access feeling good before the evidence of your desire showed up? You would be a match to your desires and by universal law the evidence would show up in your experience and by the way sooner than later. I call this accelerated abundance. The time is now to empower your life. Empowerment is the power to control your world and it is a natural resource. What are you waiting for? So here it goes: If you cannot Get to Good then you cannot get the Good Life! Get to Good is a mindset for alignment with the good life, the one worthy of you! The answers you are seeking come from being aligned as an empowered person.
Yasmini"Set down my thoughts not yours if the tale is to be worth the pesa."The why and wherefore of my privilege to write a true account of the Princess Yasmini's early youth is a story in itself too long to tell here; but it came about through no peculiar wisdom. I fell in a sort of way in love with her, and that led to opportunity.She never made any secret of the scorn with which she regards those who singe wings at her flame. Rather she boasts of it with limit-overreaching epithets. Her respect is reserved for those rare men and women who can meet her in unfair fight and, if not defeat her, then come close to it. She asks no concessions on account of sex. Men's passions are but weapons forged for her necessity; and as for genuine love-affairs, like Cleopatra, she had but two, and the second ended in disaster to herself. This tale is of the first one that succeeded, although fraught with discontent for certain others.The second affair came close to whelming thrones, and I wrote of that in another book with an understanding due, as I have said, to opportunity, and with a measure of respect that pleased her.
What thou seest when thou dost wake, Do it for thy true love take; Love and languish for his sake; Be it ounce, or cat, or bear, Pard, or boar with bristled hair, In thy eye what shall appear, When thou wak'st, it is thy dear; Wake when some vile thing is near.
"A delightful book that addresses current issues for children with warmth and empathy". -- Denyse Kapelus, Director, Professional Nannies Institute
