Food: How to make sushi rolls?

"Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new."
                                                                                     Albert Einstein

Good Monday

I don´t have the answer (not yet) but I will make the perfect sushi roll one day with the help of this site http://makemysushi.com/ . I swear my attempt of sushi rolls was much tastier than it looks:-)
With all my apologizes to all Japanese people and chefs, I tried to do California Roll Sushi (http://makemysushi.com/index.php/Recipes/california-roll-sushi.html )  and the Classic Sushi Roll with conserved tuna fish (lol) (http://makemysushi.com/index.php/How-to-make-sushi/classic-roll.html ).
Please, if you have tips to improve my skills in this field, let me know. And smile...life is too short!

Enjoy and happy week,

Flor

Cross Stitch: Most popular quotations

 Dear Readers,


For this weekend I suggest one of my brand new patterns/charts for one of the most popular quotation used to put away the haters around you or with you...or coming soon (yes, they are everywhere, anywhere, LOL): "Don´t hate the player, hate the game." It´s also nice to remember us that rules sometimes seem not to be fair and that´s why I wrote Players, in the plural. But you can make it in the singular.
We can not "To kill a mockingbird" just because he flies better than haters, can we?  Forget about my interpretation and find out other good ones here: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Don't+Hate+The+Playa%2FPlayette+Hate+The+Game  Smile!
Pick up your favorite color, find a nice frame and a good place to show off your new project. I hope you like it and stitch it.

Happy weekend,

Flor

Lifestyle: How to make homemade ice cream...

...for kids and family.

Hey, hey
Are you spending well your week? I hope so!
Its almost Summer time. Time for ice cream. I know you feel guilty when your kids ask for ice cream. Obesity, cholesterol, processed fats makes you think twice. I`ve found a way, I mean a cheap way, to let them eat ice cream as a game and in a healthy way. I can assure you that is a very good ideia. My family loves.





All you need is favorite yogurts, colors and 40 minutes in the freezer. Done!

Enjoy,

Flor

Stay calm and eat fruits!


Hi
Finally is Friday and we are going to spend more time at home with our family. 
Do you want a better way to spend your precious time together than eating avocados with red fruits?  We all know the benefits of eating fruits, so please, accept my suggestion and be happy, thin and healthy. Mix the avocados with sweet milk and mix the red fruits with a little bite of sugar. Do not use any sugar in case of diabetic issues. Then serve as you want or as you see in the picture. 

Happy weekend,

Flor

Lifestyle: How to fight loneliness

Hi, there

Nobody needs to be alone. Everybody has somebody. Follow my tip and let me know your new life. No, you don´t need to spend a lot of money. Sometimes, simple things are more appreciated than other things or expensive things. Just do my desert, find a good movie or program on tv or something to talk about and invite your beloved one. Do somthing! It can be your sister, your son, your employer, your dream man, your bestfriend, your colleague or anyone you want to. Remember: the most important thing is your intention to share moments, simple and good moments like your yogurt with fruits. Repeat the process to keep loneliness away!


Good luck,

Flor


Crochet: My top model

Hello, Dear
How was your 1st May holiday? For us it was another lovely working day because I really love my work.
I tried my new ballerinas pattern for baby girls in a soft pink color. My top model...I mean, my baby boy helped me, staying calm and posing for photos. I love him so much:-) 
Just stay in touch to see the final result of this project.

Hugs,

Flor
