A Romantic Wedding in the Rain

The saying Wet bride lucky bride in the modern day cannot be more appropriate. Do you know that this saying comes from those who want to drive away the bad mood of the bride who, after spending months to organize every little detail of the wedding, is sad because the rain threatens to ruin the happiest day of her life.

The saying comes from far away, when the society was mostly agrarian and the rain was the main factor for the growth of crops. Therefore rain is associated with the growth and abundance and so it is a good omen to lay the foundations for the start of a new family.

The rain during the day of the wedding is one of the biggest concerns of to be married couples, especially those who planned the ceremony for outdoor reception. However, I am convinced that marriages in the rain can be fantastic, if you're prepared.

To begin with, paradoxically, some photographers are able to do some really superb shots when the skies are leaden and copious rain falls from the heavens with night effects, brilliant effects, choreography with umbrellas and galoshes, and well, there is no end to the imagination and even a seemingly difficult situation, turns into a creative opportunity for those who are behind the camera.

In case of rain dear brides do not worry, there is always a plan B. If you planned a garden party choose a location with many rooms nearby in order to move the tables inside and leave anyway the freedom of movement for guests. In case of bad weather the food buffet, originally scheduled in the garden, can be set up in a dedicated room without having to move the tables for the wedding feast.

The location should also be equipped with wardrobe space if not a dedicated room, where guests can leave any coats and umbrellas. Obviously a wardrobe implies service staff to handle it, if the location does not have it. Other elements useful in bad weather is a canopy at the entrance. If the reception will be divided between several buildings it would be important that the transition from one to another is covered.

If in the days before the wedding you see that rain is expected, buy yourself a nice pair of cute rainboots and use them for travel, which you can take off once you arrive at the location, but at least you have the ability to move nimbly for the first part of the wedding without soaking your shoes and make it unusable for the rest of the day.

It will be ideal for some funny photographs and remember this special day with a smile. Among the various things I've learned from watching foreign marriages it is that women, especially the British, who have to do with a rainy climate, are not afraid to give up decolletes for outdoor photos.

And looking at these pictures I have to admit I find it irresistible, even the rubber boots, which can be in light colors and patterns. And who would have thought that the boots are wonderful themed decorations, once filled with flowers.

Finally, if you love the color, give away to your guests many colorful umbrellas and cheer up the gray mood due to the weather and warm up the mood of the newlyweds. The patterns can be heart-shaped, polka dot, with ruffles or rainbow. Surely it will not be hard to find one that matches the color of your mood.

And who knows, after the rain you may be fortunate enough as to watch a beautiful rainbow sprout. There is nothing more romantic and sweet than photos of newlyweds happy and smiling in the rain

Egg Curry Recipe

Egg curry in India is known as Anda Curry that is a very simple recipe and is very popular with children. Perfect for lovers of hardboiled eggs, the spicy curry enhances the flavor. In this dish, the hard-boiled eggs are stir fried and then added to a sauce. It is served over steamed rice in India. Eggs can be added to any type of sauce you like. In this instructable I have shown how to make it with peas and tomato sauce.

This week I propose a curry eggs, a dish I wanted to replicate for some time after I had tasted the homemade version prepared by a friend. When I announced that dinner was planned with a curry of eggs it unexpectedly cause generalized reactions of astonishment. And so I realized that it has taken for granted that everyone to know that there are several varieties of curry, not only as regards the main ingredient, but also for the combination of spices and flavor to be obtained. So I decided to make a brief discussion on the curry to have some clarity on the subject.

An Italian Meal with my friend at Da Mauro

As I walked down the street, distracted by my thoughts and my memories, the smell from a nearby pizza shop invaded my senses and immediately my mind was transported to a recent visit to an expat friend's house. My friend, John lives in Central Park Resorts at the heart of Gurgaon. I'm not a huge fan of Gurgaon given the dusty roads, pollution, bad traffic and civic sense, but Central Park Resorts is another world in itself - an ample green environment with the usual facilities like amphitheatre, gym, spa, kids play area etc. But two things really caught my eye - the town-ship is automobile free and golf buggies are used to commute on surface. That sounds downright futuristic and something only the millionaires could afford, right? But there it was, right in front of my eyes in Gurgaon! Well, the future is really here I guess.

But what really got to me is the second thing - something situated inside the Central Park Resorts township. Read on:

Mysore Pak Recipe

The Mysore Pak is an Indian dessert originating in the state of Karnataka in southern India, but it is widely consumed throughout peninsular India and especially Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Kerala. There are 2 ways to prepare it, soft or more solid, with generous amounts of melted butter or ghee, chickpea flour and sugar. Of course people prepare these delicacies especially for the feast of Diwali, the festival of lights.

The mysore pak was originally known as masoor pak, and was made with masoor dal flour. The exact origin of the recipe is unknown, although some claim that it was created in or near the Mysore Palace by a cook raised in the Kakasura Madappa. Its history dates back to, probably sometime in the 17th or 18th century Mysore, where during the reign of King Krishna Raja Wadiyar IV, the recipe was invented in the kitchens of the palace by the chef Kakasura Madappa. Having no idea for his creation, Madappa decided to call the recipe Mysore Pak, which means in Sanskrit and…
