Yum Yum: Rhubarb Crumble

24 Nov

So, I always run out of ideas, never know what to make my hubby for dessert and boy, does he love his desserts! So, tonight, I decided to try Rhubarb Crumble. It went down a treat! He loved it! Brownie points for me!!

Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Cut the rhubarb into 7½cm/3in long sticks and place on an oven tray, sprinkle with the water and caster sugar and roast in the oven for 10 minutes. Once cooked, remove from the oven, sprinkle over the ginger and mix well. Fill an ovenproof dish about 4cm/1½in deep with the rhubarb. Rub the butter into the flour and sugar to make the crumble topping. Sprinkle over the rhubarb and bake in the oven for 35-45 minutes, or until the crumble topping is crisp and golden-brown and the rhubarb filling has softened and is bubbling. Remove and allow to cool slightly before serving with double cream.

Here’s what you need:

  • 10 sticks of rhubarb (you can get this in LuLu Hypermarket!)
  • 4 tbsp water
  • 8 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 tsp powdered ginger
  • 4 ounces of butter
  • 4 ounces of demerara sugar (you can get this in Sultan Centre)
  • 6 ounces of flour

Where will you be Spring/Summer 2011?

17 Nov

Well, I hope I’ll be somewhere watching The Royal Wedding.

That’s right. Prince William is FINALLY going to make an honest woman out of Kate, or Katherine as he made the announcement to the world, yesterday.

So, here’s my question. Is the lady going to do a flip reversal and start dressing and acting like a ‘royal’?

Here’s Kate in 2008- note: this was for a charity, roller-blade party!

Here’s Kate Wearing a neat skirt suit, she was joined by Prince Harry and Camilla Parker-Bowles at St George’s Chapel, Windsor, when William received the Knight of the Garter – becoming a Royal Knight Companion and the 1,000th Knight in the order.

 

Will she remember to take the labels off the shoes when she gets married? I do hope so.

I wish them all the best. I think they make a lovely couples and she seems ‘normal’.

 

Don’t forget!

InterSport at 360

13 Nov

Buzfairy asked this morning on Twitter where she could find ‘Earth Shoes‘ in Kuwait. It reminded me of these shoes I saw in InterSport 360.

They are called Fit Flops. They are a leg and bottom toning sandal.

What do they do?

  • – help increase leg and bottom muscle activity (up to 30%). (so you feel less ache in your hips and knees) ,

  • – absorb more shock than a normal shoe (up to 22%),

  • – help realign ground force reaction closer to your joints,

  • – reduce foot pressure.

The good news is…Winter is coming and ‘fit flops’ might not be the warmest things to have on your feet and that’s where the Fit Boot comes in..

AND, these are also available for men!

 

Loving my new jimmy choo uggs!

10 Nov

Ahhh!! A friend just brought me back some Jimmy Choo Uggs!! They are super comfy and only cost her 200 Euro during her trip to Dublin, she had to pre-order them though! What a fantastic birthday present!

I’m heading back in December to UK and am thinking of getting these starlit ones (see below)…they are so cute, I just don’t know if I’m ”brave” enough to wear them outside… tell me what you think..

Bit much?

I’m just thinking, is there a Jimmy Choo in Avenues? If so, someone let me know which phase! I always make it as far as the food section and then turn around…..I get bored quickly!

Btw, for anyone that doesn’t know…. Jimmy Choo’s are like wearing chocolate on your feet!! They are simply amazing! Jimmy Choo was Carrie’s favorite Boutique in Sex and the City (yes! Now you remember!)

LOL .. This Asian guy boarded a plane to Vancover as the old white guy on the right and left the plane looking like the guy on the left… lol

The unnamed man boarded the Vancouver-bound flight on October 29. At some point during the flight, he went into the bathroom and took his mask off, emerging as the young, Asian man. – Was it a Hallowe’en Special? Or was he just seeking refugee status as they say? LOLOL
