Cooking for your friends and entertaining them at your home need not be quite a very stress free task if you know just the right way to pull it off. If you are a superb cook, by all means prepare all the dishes that you think your friends will like, cook up a storm and blow them away with your culinary skills. On the other hand, if you can just cover the basics, you can never go wrong with a good pasta dish. Add in a bakery-made bread to go with it, store-brought dessert and a good wine and you are all set. Do not forget to bring out the china, of course, and put up the linen burlap, too, to make your guests’ dining experience even more special. Do light up a couple of scented candles on the table and throw in nice soothing music on your player for one perfect dining treat. Who says you need to break the bank to dine in style?
Eating is one of the things I love most in the world. It comforts me and of course, give me much satisfaction. On the other hand, I am also prone to mindless snacking which can result to unwanted weight gain and unhealthy eating habits. That is why I make it a point to choose my snack items very well, that way I do not have to worry even when I overeat since I am eating healthy food to begin with. I stock up on fruits, raisins, best bean chips and other healthy snack alternatives instead of buying chips and other junk foods. That way I know I can keep the weight gain to a minimum and I am assure that I only get to put good stuff inside my body. If we are what we eat, I would definitely want to be all good, fresh and healthy.
Who says you cannot be healthy and eat your snacks, too? Proper planning and choosing the food you eat well always do the trick!
Summer is the best time to go camping because of the perfect sunny weather. But these days, the climate changes so quick that it comes without you being prepared for it. Summer heat started even before summer was officially welcomed. Summer heat plus long weekend, oh how much I wanna go out camping with mykids.
Going out camping with friends or the family is one way to maintain a healthy perspective and attitude in life. That is balancing everything in life. Life is not just all about work. We must also fill in the time for play, relax, sleep, and worship God.
I can now imagine where we want to go. I better check on our tent and the camping lamps. If the camping lamps are not working anymore, then I guess we have to purchase new lamps that can be lighted with butane torch lighter. That kind of lighter and lamps are very convenient for outdoor fun. Just by thinking on what to prepare, I am giving the ceiling a dreamy stare.
Playing instrument is not something I can do and forgive me if I cannot tell a pedal board or a guitar pedal apart, but I know for a fact that a lot of people took interest in playing guitars and other instrument. I kind of think men and women who play instruments are really cool. And it is really quite sad that I am not one of them. I know it is not too late for me to try and learn how to play it, it might just be in my blood, for all I know.
Playing instrument can be one great pastime. Listening to music is really relaxing and I am sure playing a guitar or another instrument can really work wonders for my nerves. Some even turned out to make money of their instrument playing hobby, by joining contests and bands. Some make decent living out of it, playing in hotels and bars.
I may not make a living out of playing instrument anytime soon, but it sure would not hurt if I try to learn how to play one.
Shopping for nuts and bolts can be quite a pain, especially for someone who cannot tell a gripper from the rest even if his life depends on it. Not to mention walking straight to a hardware or a similar place seem like the most un-glamorous thing to do. If you would ask me, it would really be quite a chore, a tedious difficult chore that I would like to be over and done with the soonest time possible.
For those of us who are not gifted in nuts and bolts, the best thing to go about this task will have to be shopping online. Think of the convenience it will bring you when you do not have to come face to face with all the numerous products that will actually daze and confuse you? You can browse through online albums with a click of a button, pay for your purchases online and wait for the products to be delivered right at your doorsteps. No sweat, and you friends do not even have to see you enter a hardware shop!
