Assalam Aalikum Everyone ^_^
I hope that you all had a good summer and are enjoying the nice cool weather that October is bring us. I have been up to a lot the passed month or so and it’s has been so much fun. I have spent a lot of time cooking and gardening, but now that it’s cooling down a little faster than I thought, I brought my plants indoors already.
My husband had gotten me a Gerbera Daisy over the summer and it ended up giving me over 5 Daisies. They were so beautiful. But when the flower had reached the end of it’s blooming it grew a big puff ball of seeds, kind of like what a dandilion does.
what I thought was a Gerbera Daisy sprout from one of the falling seeds, was actually a TREE!! Not sure what kind it is. But right now it’s so tall and big! You guys have to see the comparison. It’s crazy. The sprout was taken 07-04-2012, and the other photo in Sept. 16th 2012.
As for cooking, I have tried out some Japanese recipes. My husband and I love Japanese culture. Recently I made Japanese Curry Rice, it’s very popular in Japan. It was so good and easy to make! They use an Asian Curry Mix. It’s not like normal curry, it’s more sweet in taste. They have a number of different brands, but the most popular are House Vermont Curry and Golden Curry. I couldn’t find the House Vermont Curry, but Wal-mart had the Golden Curry. I recommend Med Hot, it’s not spicy at all but give a lot more flavor. I’ll try and post a video of how I make it, because everyone makes it different.
October 4th was my 7th year Wedding Anniversary Alhamdulillah! (Praise and Thanks to God), I can hardly believe it’s been that long. Since my husband is a big fan of Japanese Culture, I got him a Japanese Smiling Blue Cat Porcelain Noodle Bowl It’s so cute! I got myself a pink one. But I made the mistake of telling him that I had a surprise for him but that he had to wait a couple of weeks. He was so curious and wanted to know what it was. So I gave in because I felt bad that I had said anything to begin with, lol. HE LOVED IT. Then I got him a matching Smiling Blue Cat Porcelain Deep Dish“, and this time I didn’t say anything. He was so surprised and LOVED IT! I got myself the same one to go with my bowl.
So this passed weekend my husband and I went with some friends to a local orchard and went apple picking. It was so much fun! I have never been apple picking before and they had so much to choose from.
