Sunday Lunch, Alf and UFO

It is Sunday, June 26, 2016.

And I believe I am on this land called earth…trying to be the best human being that I can be. And if UFO is flying somewhere….I don’t know…up there,

and trying to come to our land what should we do?

And who they are? Can you imagine them? …I like to imagine them like a smart-mouthed creature who come to be with us

and help us become better people. So,as I am thinking somebody is knocking on my door.

Who is it? – I am asking.

Alf.

Who?

Alf? Do you remember me?

Sorry, I don’t. Who are you?

I am from that show “Alf”? How can you forget me? You used to watch me. And laugh… I hate humans, they don’t know how to be loyal.

How can I help you?-I ask.

I am hungry! And I know you have new blog and I want to taste your food.

You know I have a new blog? Now I am interested… Alf, how do you know I have new blog?

Well, Christopher Columbus told me. He said: You are pretty interesting person? You just don’t belong to people….

And he loves your blog about him Discover Life-Christopher Columbus

So, can you open the door? I want to see your eyes and talk to you…And let me be honest, I really want to eat …

I am still hesitant when Alf yells: “I can even promote your blog…for FREE?”

You can..really? – I am yelling now.  Having my blog promoted at the planet of Melmac can’t hurt.

After all I am just another human being who wants to go to new places and planets…

Alf can help.

And I like to share.

As I am opening the door my childhood of imagination is looking into me and laughing:

“Hello, Martha Stewart. What is for lunch?”

I am speechless just for a moment …or maybe two and as I am looking into Alf eyes I am saying:

“Let me show you..”

Apple Cider Vinegar, Weight and Fun – Pinocchio…

How can you have an organic apple cider vinegar, weight and fun in one sentence and still say to yourself:

– Yes, I am an honest person.

Even Pinocchio is calling his PR department (Public Relations) in panic and saying “Nobody can have a bigger nose than me. Nobody! How dare you to try!”

But since I am a decent human being and I believe in “I can and I will” my post today is the Apple Cider Vinegar Drink – Lose Weight and Have Fun!

So, Pinocchio calm down and try to become more open-minded…Immediately!

If you still have a sour face don’t worry, you still can’t compete with our main ingredients Organic Apple Cider Vinegar.

Now, we know who is the king in this post. So, Pinocchio please go back into your made up story and let my readers believe in this magic drink.

Because, it is important to surround yourself with people you like…and a lots of water.

Now, we got the second most important ingredients…WATER.

Time for making magic happen. NOW!

8 oz Water

2 tsp Organic Apple Cider Vinegar

Mix 2 teaspoons of organic apple cider vinegar with 8 oz of water.

Drink it with a straw.

If you are open-minded person and you have a thirst for knowledge and curiosity about the world around you buy

an apple scented candle.

Why?

Because it reduces stress hormone!

Also aroma of apples stimulates the appetite control center of the brain, helping you stop eating sooner.

Light the candle during the meals…and believe in magic of ….

Organic Apple Cider Vinegar Drink!

So, where is the fun in this story?-Pinocchio is asking.

I don’t know, ask the rabbit in my garden!

Or just create some fun using your own imagination….find the hula-hoop and start smiling while losing inches….

CSI – Cherry Strudel Crime Scene

Do you ever have one of those days when everything seems to be perfect?

It is a sunny day outside, your soul is at the peace and your generous heart full of chocolate is asking for  … let me pause for a moment….your heart is asking for fruit …Are you kidding me?

Of course, I am. To be exact the heart is asking for cherry strudel. Oh you greedy heart, how can I say no to you?

Of course I can’t and being the hard working person that I am I am moving my body towards my little kitchen and

I am going to create the magic called Cherry Strudel.

Like always, the project manager in me needs to create the ingredients list.

So, what do we need?

-flour, butter, sour cream, sugar,cornstarch, cherries…Easy, don’t you think?

Once you have all ingredients let me show you your destination in making…Cherry Strudel!

Now, when you have the ingredients list and picture of destination let’s start baking.

First step – strudel dough. (You can use mixer, blender or your hands)

I use blender. Mix 1 cup of flour and 1/2 cup butter.

Add 1/2 cup sour cream (14%) and keep mixing it until all ingredients are blended together.

Form a ball, cover with plastic wrap and let rest for at least one hour or up to overnight.

Now, you completed your first step.

Step 2 – Stretch dough

Sprinkle wax paper lightly with flour and place dough in center.

With a floured rolling pin, roll out dough into a rectangular shape 12 x 9. Dough should be thin as tissue paper.

Step 3 – make cherry filling and sugar mixture (the recipe is below)

Step 4 – Fill the dough with fruit mixture

Sprinkle the dough with 1/4 cup of sugar mixture, add 2 cups cherries and top with the rest of sugar mixture.

Fold dough over half of cherry mixture and then fold other half. Seal the edges. (very important, all of them)

Cherry Filling:

2 cups cherries

Sugar Mixture

1 cup sugar

1/8 cup flour

1/8 cup cornstarch

Mix sugar, flour and cornstarch.
