Both husband and I are very fond of earthy home cooked stuff and abhor the additives that we see in many commercial foodstuff which are not super expensive.
"You eat it", said husband one day, "but you dont feel satisfied. So you eat more and get fat"
Once we agreed that this was the secret behind processed food and putting on weight, we have redoubled our efforts into the made at home project.
I started making soya milk at home, which has now reduced our dairy milk consumption by half and later in this post, we shall see how husband makes his better than godiva chocolate.
But first the tiara project. I had promised Anjali that I would make a tiara for her. it began when she went to Cian Wen's birthday party and CianWen was wearing a tiara. Anjali wanted one - the Waldorf crown is very nice, but it is kind of childish, and not sparkly enough.
I checked with Cian Wen's mother and fouond that she had bought the crown for $2 at Daiso and spent half an hour looking for it on the next trip to Daiso. But no avail. Then Anjali found a beautiful hairband tiara in Tom and Stephanie. I was almost going to buy it when I saw the price tag - $12.
Now $12 is not expensive, but when you consider that most of the hairbands that she had were around $2, it seemed a bit of a waste. I looked carefully at the design and promised her that I would make her one. This was two months ago and as you know,
And now for the choloalate. Something fun as chocolate making, especially when it tastes better than Godiva, has to involve the girls.
We get everything ready
