    Marathon time! Its Monday and our 34th #Foodiemonday #bloghop theme is #NoCookNoBake. So many doors open up with this theme right from salads, smoothies, summer drinks to desserts. Anything to get away from my hot kitchen. Global warming is seriously affecting world climate and yet we humans seem to see no end to our wants and cravings. Where have the days gone when a family existed on one small fridge, one television, one phone, only fans. The more we want, the more materialistic things are created and produced.To meet the demand, more factories are constructed. This means greenery disappears. I think every country in the world should make it mandatory that every building that comes up should be surrounded with trees and greenery. The green…

    Yet another salsa What do you do with a melon that is tasteless? Eat it anyway, or sprinkle some sugar, drizzle some honey, make a smoothie or a salad? Endless options right?

    healthy green I simply love fruit, any fruit in my salad. I just have to find a new fruit in the market and it turns into a salad. Ajay was complaining that I don’t give any of the fruits breathing space. Well that’s not entirely true, had custard apple and jamun the other day on its own without turning it into a salad! Jamun got saved as I couldn’t be bothered to remove the chunky seeds and make a mushy mixture in the process. Anyway, if like me you love fruity salads, then try out the melon salad. Very fresh and healthy and loved the different hues of green. Use any melon of your choice, honeydew, musk melon or cantaloupe.Basically they are all the same…

      extreme cooling remedy   We all know that melons have a cooling property. No wonder they are in abundance during the summer heat. Honeydew melons have slowly started appearing on the market in Mombasa. I love the ones that come from Voi. They tend to be juicy and sweet, most of the times.  Can’t say the same about the local oranges. Even if some of the fruits come from Tanzania our neighbouring country, its still labelled as local and not imported, like the  grapes, apples, oranges from South Africa. There are carts full of these oranges everywhere. The first time I bought them from a seller near the temple,  he promised me they were sweet oranges from Tanzania. I took them home, juicer and…
