Its the middle of May and its getting hotter than ever; the temperature reading in my car shows a blistering 45°C at 8:30am, and you know what, the summer has barely begun. Continue reading
Finally I have managed to catch the bug again.. the writing bug that is. Feels good and I am so happy I can finally put my thoughts and ideas on paper… or the web rather. There has been so much going on, I am struggling making time for myself to breathe. So here’s a quick catch up.
Now you do know that I am a toddler in my big group of Fooderati’s yeah… Well if you dont; now you do Fooderati Arabia is a great big family to say the least! This is where I have spent roughly 5 months blogging now and will be celebrating my 6 month mark pretty soon all thanks to the wonderful information, inspiration and support that fills the gaps between us all.
While I’m still trotting Africa, I’d like to offer big thanks to Ms. Dima Sharif who has volunteered to pop a wonderful Guest Post on here. She is an absolutely inspirational chef, who offers great baking classes and if you have second thoughts on my word check out her site: www.dimasharif.com or http://dimaskitchen.blogspot.com
So enjoy this mouth-watering recipe of this simple Asian Beef and Rice Noodle Salad
Its been everywhere, and I’m not sure when the fig season is but I cant go past a crate of the juicy purplish little drop-shaped fruits without picking a few. There have been times when I have been tempted to pop one of those little things right into my mouth, but my mommy taught me better; so no fruit goes into my mouth without being washed.
Food is always on my mind regardless of where I am, even more so when I travel cause I am so nosey and just have to know what everything tastes like.. well as long as it looks appetizing atleast. I stay away from things that still move… *shiver* . I had visited Nepal and they definitely didn’t have any live foods in sight, but infact they did have scrumptions amounts of Momos, and I will tell you more about them in my upcoming post. So now I feel terrible about my weight gain in Nepal, hence the last few posts have been focussed on getting me to shed those pounds; including a strenuous bootcamp at 6 in the a.m. plus running for 30-45 minutes and a whole lot of leaf eating… granted it isn’t really working, but atleast I can say I tried.
I’m a big fan of the 60′s and what a dancy number that was. With Gene Vincent playing in the background there I was hopping around, dancing in the kitchen and preparing a quick snack for me and myself
Be Bop A Lula she’s my baby
And this little snack is honestly the easiest thing in the world. The tuna paste can be used quite flexibly in whatever you want and however you want. Its great in sandwiches, over rye bread, in a pasta salad or even with just some lettuce or really anything you can think of. I prepared this for the bachelorette I had earlier this year too. If you have made too much of it.. worry not, just toss in into a tupperware, freeze it and when you feel like a tuna sandwich, just pull it out let it thaw and spread it.
