My son and husband went for a wedding, I didn’t go because of the boils on my leg. I had enough time while they were out. But time would be difficult to kill because whenever I am free for so long I bake, but today when I stepped out to bake, the pain doesn’t allow me move. So I kept lying with my internet on, to see what to bake next when I will be well. I noted down some ingredients in my diary, of course, I can bookmarked them but whipping up something with your phone on and checking ingredients makes it really dirty. So after various trials, I thought writing down would be a better option.
My illness and my son exams didn’t let us move anywhere this weekend. I satisfied myself by watching some of the old pictures which I took some time back on the premises of a mall. Sometimes I don’t visualize why such things which I often see in the market like in the photographs and wonder why and for whom such things are made like this metal purse, glittering sandals, fur jackets and many more things? But I strongly believe there is a buyer of everything. I remember last time I bought a empty fruit box from my fruit vendor and everybody was laughing(I bought this as a prop), sometimes I am in search of wooden planks. Obsessive buyers like me exists everywhere.
This time for my edible gifting ideas series, I decided to make these healthy nutters for my loved ones. They were so good and that too without any sugar. We all know the goodness of figs but the bad thing is we don’t get them as a fruit instead we get them as dry fruit. Recently my bhabhi told me that if you have any problem of Sinus, eat them two pieces daily and it will cured altogether.
