I'm enjoying reading the book Atomic Habits by James Clear.

I see a lot of suggestions on how to form habits  you want and to dissipate habits you don't.

One is to look at the cues that start a behavior. Also, that by changing your environment, the behaviors can change too

One challenging thing I have now is eating too much and between meals. I noticed that every time I would go into the kitchen, I would eat something. I reorganized my kitchen by pushing the table in front of the refrigerator when I want to not eat. It's a change to the environment and it seems to be helping.

My Great Aunt Alice's Grandfather Fewell owned a plantation with tenants William and Minnie Hooker sharecropping about 80 acres. One of their children was the jazz musician John Lee Hooker.

This is according to an autobiography of my great aunt titled "A Mississippi Delta Childhood." It was privately published and I searched online and can't find any copies of it for sale.  

I just looked up her genealogy and, according to the biography, John Lee Hooker was 3 years older that Alice who was born in 1920. This is consistent with the general conclusion that he was born in 1917.

FWIW, this gives me 3 degrees of separation from a huge cohort that I wasn't aware of before looking this up.
I have an excellent cookbook "Rodale's Basic Natural Foods Cookbook" edited by Charles Gerras. Mine is the 1984 edition.

It has lots of useful tables.  How to prepare seafood, cooking methods for vegetables and quite a few others. 

One table includes information about spice/vegetable combinations.This document summarizes the information.  Spice Table by SmilingY I haven't tested many of the combinations personally but I trust the source.

Although it's not in the chart, I discovered that celery seed goes well with cauliflower.
