A few handy tips
A few kitchen tips and tricks can save a lot of time and reduce the unpleasant hassle of keeping things fresh and sparkling.
Potatoes start to bud if you stow them in your kitchen for long. However, if you place an apple in your bag of potatoes, you can prevent them from budding.
Eggshells tend to crack when we boil them. Did you know, though, that adding a pinch of salt to the water in which we are boiling eggs could prevent them from cracking?
To remove those unpleasant burn-marks of scorched food from your metal pans and pots, simply add a drop or two of dishwashing soap and enough water to cover the bottom of the pan. Heat it on the stove and you will see those stubborn stains coming off very easily.
Sometimes some things leave us unmindful during cooking and we tend to over-salt a dish. If you ever do that then just drop in a slice of peeled potato in the curry as this would absorb any extra salt present in the dish.
To determine whether an egg is fresh or not, put them in a bowl full of water. If the egg submerges then it is fresh but if it floats on the water then it must be rotten.
Potatoes will take
food stains off of your hands. Just slice and rub raw potato on the
stains and rinse with water.

I really get uptight
when I hear friends saying "Boy, he is 90 kg! He is going to die."
So I wonder, where does that leave me? Dead? Anyway today was a good
day. I exercised for a full 40 minutes, ate sensibly and am basically
feeling proud of myself. If I can only pass the night without snacking,
I am home free.
of the day: "Hey sis, you are looking ‘normal’ fat today.
From behind, still abnormally fat but up front.... normal fat."
recipe for the day:
