The Nut Tree Closed Down :(

I went to The Nut Tree in AlZahra Co op and the cleaning man told me it shut down for good so I tried the one in Mishref Co op and found out it also shut down 😦 Does anyone know if the one in Burj Baitik is still open? I love their dried fruit and I’ll be so sad if it’s closed as well 😦

Spa Socks

I got these from Sephora after my sister recommended them. They’re very soft fleece pink socks with an coating of a gel made of grapeseed, jajoba and olive oil as well as vitamin E.
They felt so soothing and relaxing when I put them on and walking in them was so cool! It’s supposed to soften your feet and after a few hours of wearing them I really felt my feet were a little softer.
Gonna try them again and see if my feet become as soft as Princess T’s :p

Cooking at Tatami

I’m so glad I signed up for the cooking class Chef Danah Al Tourah was hosting at Tatami today! I arrived there late coz of traffic but thank god there was only 1 person waiting there and I later found out that she was a fellow blogger, the gorgeous Nouf from one of my favorite blogs RanNouf
Chef Danah introduced us to eachother then handed out our recipe sheets and sexy orange aprons ( I wish I didn’t give it back! :p)
We headed into the kitchen with I must say was very immaculate and welcoming.
We spent nearly 3 hours there but time passed by so fast cause we were having so much fun! I must say that Chef D’s teaching was very educational and entertaining. She explained everything in so much detail, from how to mix a marinade properly to how to mince garlic and easily remove olive pits.
I highly recommend everyone to join her next classes, and she also gives private classes if you wanna plan a fun activity for your friends.
Check out what we cooked today!
And btw sorry for the quality of the pictures, I rushed out of the house and forgot my camera 😦

We made 2 sauces, chimichurri (the green one) which is one of my fav. Sauces and was so excited about it, and the other one was used as a marinade for the vegetables.

Then we worked on a beautiful Nuwaibi fish. Chef D. also taught us how to know if the fish is fresh and the proper way of freezing it.
