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

A joke for the men…

24 Nov

WaRNING: This joke isn’t really for ladies at all, we’re just not that rude. LOL

The other day I needed to pay a visit to the public toilet, so I found a public toilet that had two cubicles.

One of the doors was locked. So I went into the other one, closed the door, dropped my trousers and sat down.

A voice came from the cubicle next to me: “Hello mate, how are you doing?”

Although I thought that it was a bit strange, I didn’t want to be rude, so I replied, “Not too bad, thanks.”

After a short pause, I heard the voice again. “So, what are you up to?”

Again I answered, somewhat reluctantly, “Just having a quick dump… How about yourself?”

The next thing I heard him say was, “Sorry, mate, I’ll have to call you back. I’ve got some knob in the cubicle next to me answering everything I say.”

Qatari to insert CAMERA into his head…

20 Nov

God,I thought this was a joke…but it seems to be very true!!!

Wafaa Bilal will be implanting a camera into the back of his head for an art project. Entitled ‘The 3rd I,’ the project has him streaming live images to a museum in Qatar. Wafaa Bilal intends to undergo surgery to install a thumbnail-size camera that will automatically snap one photograph per minute for an entire year. As The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday, the project, titled “The 3rd I,” was commissioned by a new museum in Qatar.

The surgery is expected to take place in coming weeks, but the website is already up and running. It is showing a countdown 15th December, 2010 – 3weeks, 3 days, 7 hours to go……………….

He plans to broadcast a live stream of images from the camera to monitors at the exhibit in Qatar, scheduled to open Dec. 30 at Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art.

He’s absolutely MENTAL.

Marriage and what it means to me…

19 Nov

In my opinion, marriage isn’t just a piece of paper. It’s a contract, an agreement between two people to spend the rest of their lives together…..and happily at that.We should never settle for ‘oh, I’ve married him now, I have to live with it.’ No, you don’t. If it’s that bad, leave. If not, make it work.

My first serious point is, The Wedding Band…don’t start quoting things to me or telling me about culture but personally, I think a wedding band is so important. Thankfully, my husband agreed. What do I think it means? And why do I think it is important? Well, there are a few reasons, it is clear to others that I am married, no longer available! In other words, DON’T BOTHER ME. It shows how important my marriage is. It’s a tiny thing, but it’s always there, always reminding me of the most important person in my life. AND for those exact reasons, I’m glad my husband wears one too…and note: the ‘how important my marriage is’ actually came from his mouth as I type this, I asked him, ‘why is your wedding ring important?’ He said, ‘it reminds me of how important my marriage is’.

Truth be told, it probably is that thing that stops men from making those little mistakes they shouldn’t make but some do.

Right, phew, now that’s out of the road, what next? Yes, ladies…

I think there are a few things that we forget.LADIES. Yes, this is directed at the ladies and for once, I’m making US out to be the ‘bad ones’.

Perhaps, we ‘let ourselves go’. Ladies, we forget the importance of ‘looking nice’, ‘wearing a little makeup’, even jewellery.

I’m not saying that these materialistic things matter BUT I do believe they have some importance.

Put yourself in your husband’s shoes. He comes home, find you in your pjs, trackie bottoms, makeup not done, hair looking like you could fry and egg on it…well, it’s not a very pretty site. Yes, of course, there are going to be days when you will be in trackie bottoms and he will love you just as much but every once in a while, make the effort.

As women, we are quick to blame the man for many, many things. We should all stop and think, sometimes, it IS our fault.

He married a ‘fun’, ‘loving’, woman…try and stay that way.

One problem that ‘crops’ up in marriage is children.

We tend to think we need to take our children EVERYWHERE with us. We don’t. We can arrange to leave them with family/friends and have those romantic nights out with our husbands. They need YOU, ALONE. It’s difficult to have ‘real’ adult conversation with kids around…infact, it’s almost impossible. What if your husband wants to say, ‘damn, you look hot today’…it will resort to ‘you look nice’ and then, we complain. Huh, he said, ‘nice, bes’ that was it…well, what else can he say in front of a 6 year old?

Time alone is VITAL.

Once or twice a week is CRUCIAL. Coffee dates, dinner dates, cinema, a walk on the beach…you are never too old.

Remember that couple that you saw sitting by the pier, eating fish and chips out of a paper bag that were in their 70’s…that is MY aim. I want to be that couple.

Most of us marry our best friends and learn to love them as a ‘title’…a husband or a wife. We all have our ups and downs but we must always remember the reason we fell in love in the first place.

What does marriage mean to you? I’m interested to know. The divorce rate in Kuwait is so high…why? And why can’t marriage be taken more seriously?
