Tonight I hosted part of the Blessing Family Clan to a Thai New Year's dinner. The original inspiration for the meal was a craving for Pok Pok, an oh-so-tasty Thai restaurant in my hometown of Portland, OR. While I didn't aim to replicate Pok Pok's famed chicken wings, the food was pretty damn good (if I do say so myself). But the highlight of the evening was Dr. Blessing's wise life advice. His prescriptions for healthy living: protect the heart with healthy boundaries. My words, not his, but I'm sticking to them. With hoisin. Everything better with hoisin.
