My weekend !

I slept with so much hope and joy that I would wake up to a great weekend.I woke up to such horrid ,dull and dusty weather.Why,why does this always happen to me and many others who have just one day to chillax outside!

After 3 weeks,My hubby finally got a break from his emergency duty for a day.I decided that even though it would be very hot I would go out for an hour and rejuvenate myself amidst mother nature.But with this weather and my allergies that can go all ballistic on me,I have no choice but to cry my heart out in this blog.

Jamie Oliver is making salads on his show.The guy is just an amazing chef.He wont go for ingredients too far fetched and all.Its basic stuff which you have in your kitchen anyways.Today he showed this great salad dressing recipe which can be prepared in advance and kept in a jar for a few days.To 2 parts of extra virgin olive oil- add 1 part lemon juice,shake well and keep it as salad dressing.You can add lightly butter toasted crotons or you can rub raw garlic on stale bread,lightly fry it in butter to make it toasty,cut it into cubes or just break them with your fingers and add to the salad made of lettuce or rockets or a mix of any other salad leaves.
You can also add few pieces of boneless chicken to the salad and make a meal of it.On my next picnic with my dearest,Im gonna make this.The last time I made sandwiches of beef salami,lettuce shoots,cheddar cheese and brown bread.The thing is it tasted great despite being cold.

Its sunny and still dusty...wish I had a portal that I could jump into and be greeted by fairies and luscious greenlands and have fun hopping and talking to flowers and trees and animals.Im trying to recede back from my childhood memories but they are just too good to be ignored.

I had a great childhood.I wasnt telling my mom what I wanted to wear,who I wanted to wear and trying to act like a mini-adult.I was stupid,carefree and in my dreamland as a child and I made sure my siblings took part in every fantasy fun I had.I would tell them lets go to Venus and try to rescue queen venus from the hands of planet Saturn.And they would stand with me by the doorway and we would act like we are asccending into space and doing the triumphant deed.Thats childhood.My parents didnt say dont act like an idiot,dont do this and that.They didnt indulge us but didnt stop us either.After all we are kids only once in our lifetime.

Great  ! The weather still hasnt cleared up.What am I going to do? I wanted to wear my blue salwar kameez,wear blue eye makeup,nude lipstick,get ready and go out and feel the wind beneath everything.;>

But now im going to go and wash up my breakfast dishes,take a shower and then finish my farming on farmville.

Beauty secrets : Multani Mitti

I was 20 when during my monthly eye brow shaping,my beautician was like you should try a facial.But I refused As my skin has been always too sensitive and the marks of anything and everything from simple burns to blemishes takes years to fade off.That's when she told me about multani mitti.As usual I didn't pay any attention initially but she was like,you can clean your face weekly with this mud pack made with rose water and your skin would be simply clean.I tried it whenever my eyes caught hold of the pack in my cupboard.Then 10 years later,it again became a staple in my cupboard but now I use it every week.

What is Multani mitti?

Its a type of mud,smells like clean mud and feels like mud on your skin.I reckon if one uses chemicals like bleach on the face,this would be a lovely soothing alternative in your beauty regimen.

I buy this chunk of of this rock like thing and sit at home and break them into small pieces and grind them in a mortar and pestle.I was scared to use my gr…

Foods to avoid if you have rheumatoid arthritis (RA)

Eating fruits and vegetables may help to prevent rheumatoid arthritis. A study from the Mayo Clinic showed that women who ate diets higher in fruits and vegetables were less likely to develop rheumatoid arthritis. This study doesn't show that eating fruits and vegetables will improve the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis; however, everyone should eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables every day.

There are some foods that may help you feel better by reducing inflammation. Research shows that omega-3 fatty acids may help to reduce inflammation. Choose foods with healthy fats such as fish, walnuts, soy, canola oil, flax seeds and pumpkin seeds. Here's a list of my favorite anti-inflammatory foods.

Camel

You must be wondering what the heck has she written about urine.Is it one the tests she had taken or some disease.

Actually yesterday some friend of my husband told him that eating camel meat stew is beneficial for people with muscle and bone problems and that very soon he would make me feast on it.I personally love camel meat,its tastier,lighter than beef,its just a beautiful meat but its a little more time to cook than the normal meat.So I thought why not find out the benefits of camel meat and while doing so,came across this article about camel urine benefits.

Don't go yuck people,I think in India,people bathe in cow urine when they have some skin infection.My brother and I did this as very small kids.We had been on a holiday to India and developed some skin eczema or chicken pox or measles....so as usual my granny said try this as well when the western medications failed.I know camel meat may not be available in India as commonly as out here but there is nothing wrong in know…
