Happy Birthday all you darlings! Hope you have a fantastic day, and a great year ahead!
There is a beautiful song in a old English movie, called Gigi, its in English, but sung with a French accent. It starts with “Thank Heaven for little Girls….”
Its a beautiful song, and the movie is very cute too!

SUPER Easy, quick and Delicious!! I made this tonight for dessert. We had a small party to celebrate the return of Nur and Nilgun, and farewell to Asiye.
Ghiradelli Brownie Mix,
Hot Fudge Topping (I used Hershey’s, but you may make your own too)
Make brownie as per the directions on the package. Cool it completely.
Now use a glass cup or bowl. You need to make layers. First I put vanilla icecream, then a piece of brownie, then a dollop of whipped cream and finally, I warmed the Hot Fudge topping in the microwave, and drizzled it over.
That’s it!! Hmm.. what was I saying… easy huh?

I got a taste of this new Pom (Pomegranate) juice when I was passing the Estee Lauder Cosmetics Counter at Macy’s. They were actually promoting their new product which had pomegranate in it. They were handing out the Pom juice, as a promotion. The lady said the juice was ‘tart’. When I tried it, my facial expression weirded out my husband. It was “tart” with a capital T. I know its wonderful and all, its antioxidant properties, etc, etc, but how can you drink a full glass of this tart juice!!
So, you know me, I usually like to eat healthy things (Chocolate is healthy in my dictionary…ahem!); so I mixed Guava juice with Pom juice, and the tartness was greatly reduced because of the sweetness of the Guava juice. So, I wouldn’t mind having Pom juice in the future, if its mixed with some sweeter juice.
These are a couple pictures of Pom tree, and the flower taken in Kashmir recently, around my in laws house.
