Let's build a play house!

Summer vacation is here and we have turned our 'let's entertain the kid indoors' mode on. It is too hot to go out during the day and without school and friends, the kid is bored as bored can be.

We made a play house for our little toy friends on the second day. All we used was old newspapers and old dupattas.

Here is how to make it.

Step 1: Take two sheets of newspaper and roll it tightly. Secure it with clear tape.

Step 2: Attach three paper rolls using clear tape to form a triangle. This is our basic brick to make the house. Now all we did was to make more triangles like this, attached them to each other until we found a desirable shape. 

We are getting there slowly, one triangle at a time. 

Each triangle unit was attached to each other with clear tape. I think now we have our structure ready. We chose a pyramid shape for our house. 

Final Step: Pick old duppattas of your choice and drape your house. Since my son's favorite colour is Orange, we went for two Orange shaded duppattas. Final step is ofcourse to shift all your lovely toys into the new playhouse! 

Voila! House! 

We are very happy with the results!

The Efficient German imported Himalayan Lazy Garlic grown in China

This is a garlic pod. It usually have multiple cloves of garlic which needs to be peeled, right? 

Now since we are in a country that boasts of their efficiency, here is a small example. Presenting the efficient garlic we got today.

When you peel it, it is one single garlic pod that can be sliced up like any onion you might have seen in your life.

The world that cooks with Garlic knows what this means! How awesome this feels! If this is a genetically mutated abomination, then I say, bring it on, Germans!

Now take a moment to think about this creation. Those who cook will know the repurcussions of a garlic pod like this.

Laters, garlic baby.

PS: It is actually himalayan efficiency. And it is called Himalayan Lazy Garlic :) Bring it on, exporters.

Bon Apetit!

The super easy super tasty garlic pull apart bread loaf I made today! It is so good :) 
It needs very basic ingredients and the outcome is just wow! 

I followed the recipe I found in this brilliant blog, Edible Garden and tralala, it is awesome!
Check this recipe out and try, all of you who want to bake something nice.

The only change I made to the original recipe was, I added a little more butter, because, Julia Child said so :)

See the original recipe here.

Fifty Shades of De

Corny as it might sound, I had announced few days back to have a 'Fifty Shades of De' series. De is the bestest friend I can ask for and I am taking it seriously! I will, in the course of time, attempt fifty or more portraits of De.

You might remember this one.

I also had a short lived cartoon series from the time we were roomies in hyderabad... 

Here is the new flower girl De :) 

That is three down, 47 more to go.

Ria De of my life. Thanks a lot for being there and being you, man :) I hope you won't mind the grey parody title, It sounds way cooler when it is Shades of De :)
