You Can’t Defile This Unbreakable Bond Between A Husband And A Wife~Tere Mere Sapane~


What did you think? You’ll play with my husband’s honor, make him fall in my estimation and you’ll make him yours forever. [Radha]

Yes Radha, I want to make Sarju mine forever. I love him and it’s my goal to win him. [Kamya O.]

Love. Affection. Do you even understand the meaning of those words? You just know how to snatch what belongs to others. What you consider as love, it’s nothing but lust. That’s why you could never make him yours in spite of being close to him. And yes, heed me. Stop behaving so cheaply. Because his fate and his life are linked to me. That’s why today too you couldn’t defile this unbreakable bond. [Radha]

You’re mistaken. Sarju shares a bond not just with you but with me too. He has achieved this success because of me. I also have a right on him. [Kamya O.]

Right? What you consider your right, it’s just your delusion. He is my husband and our relationship is not just the union of body and heart but, of soul as well. And there is no place for a third person in our relationship. That’s why you had to dress up as me to sleep with him. Even after dressing up as me you couldn’t reach his heart. That’s why in spite of being with you he took only my name. What greater proof do you want of our unbreakable bond? It’s good that I came before anything could happen. Otherwise you wouldn’t have been able to make him yours, even after giving him everything. [Radha]

Radha! [Kamya O.] [(she put her hand up to smack Radha, but Radha grabbed her hand before she could and held it tight.)]

Enough! Don’t make this mistake again. Leave from here quietly. Otherwise you will be humiliated so badly that you won’t even be able to meet your own eyes. Leave! [Radha]

You didn’t do the right thing, Radha. You’ll have to pay a price for this. [Kamya O.] [(she looks up at the camera she planted in their bedroom)]

Only time will reveal who will pay a price and who will take a price. [Radha]

[Kamya leaves the room in a huff. Then Radha goes over to her unconscious husband drugged by Kamya and sobs into his bare chest.]

~Jaane Kya Baat Hui~ Don’t Be Fooled! Aradhana Is A Beautiful Piece Of Competition


~Jaane Kya Baat Hui ~

(such an amazing and lovely title song)



It seems the title “Jaane Kya Baat Hui” fits this story perfectly because it means “Don’t know what happened.”

Aradhana and Shailendra’s ten year marriage is in trouble. Aradhana doesn’t have a clue that her husband Shailendra is having an affair with Nikita at the office.

It’s amazing to see how Mrs. Aradhana handles herself throughout this affair so very well. And don’t be fooled!… As she dresses well, cares for herself and is a beautiful piece of competition nevertheless for Ms. Nikita. I keep watching wondering…. if and when she will find out the truth? What she will do once she knows? I guess she would wonder and ask herself questions like. How did things go wrong?  What happened in the relationship that her husband felt the need to find pleasure in another woman?

Aradhana’s delicate, beautiful, kind and warmhearted nature makes her appear weak. Yet she’s smart and a fighter. I can see her hanging tough while going a few rounds and doing whatever it takes to help her marriage survive this affair.

She’s the typical loving wife and is good to her family (in-laws) while dealing with her charismatic yet difficult husband in the midst of this emotional roller coaster ride. I think I’m hooked! So I’ll keep watching to see what the next few weeks hold on my latest Indian serial to love.

Basmati Wild Rice With Cornbread Crumbles & Mushrooms In Cream Cheese Sauce On The Side

Whole grain wild rice combined with a much softer fluffy rice has a deliciousness I cannot describe. And this along with a side of mushrooms in cream cheese sauce hits the spot. And for dessert a slice of strawberry lemonade cake.

All I can tell you is that my husband absolutely enjoys this meal as he puts in a request after having it to make it again real soon. How can I blame him. (Lol!)

Basmati Wild Rice With Cornbread Crumbles & Mushrooms in Cream Cheese Sauce Recipes”


Wild Rice Ingredients:

1/2 to 1 cup Bob’s Red Mill Quick Cooking Wild Rice (soaked then rinsed)

1 Tablespoon of kosher salt (the kosher salt is for soaking this rice only)

Hot boiling filtered water (enough to cover the rice, no more) or vegetable broth

½ teaspoon of onion powder

½ teaspoon Cajun seasoning

½ teaspoon turmeric

1 teaspoon coconut oil

2 cups of buttery cornbread crumbles

Basmati Rice Ingredients:

3 cups Basmati Rice (washed/rinsed)

Hot boiling filtered water (enough to cover the rice, no more) or vegetable broth

1 Tablespoon coconut oil

1 teaspoon of butter

1 teaspoon onion powder

1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning

1 teaspoon turmeric powder

½ teaspoon red pepper flakes

1 teaspoon fennel seeds

Mushrooms In Cream Cheese Ingredients:

2 medium sized containers of whole button mushrooms (washed/rinsed and chopped)

1 green bell pepper (chopped)

1 red bell pepper (chopped)

1 small red onion (minced)

1 Tablespoon of coconut oil

1 teaspoon of onion powder

1 teaspoon of Adobo seasoning

1/2 cup of cream cheese (optional)

Sour cream (optional)


1 ten inch frying pan with lid

1 1.1/2-quart sauce pan with lid

1 three quart sauce pan with lid

2 large spoons

2 medium sized mixing bowls

1 large fork

~Keep both the Basmati and the Wild Rice Separated until the end.

Bring to boil a kettle full of filtered water or a pot of vegetable broth.~

Directions For Wild Rice:

1. Soak the wild rice in filtered water and kosher salt for 30 minutes. Then rinse well and strain water off.

2. Add strained rice to a 1.1/2-quart sauce pan, add other ingredients and spices except the cornbread crumbles, then add just enough hot boiling water or hot boiling vegetable broth to cover the rice, no more.

3. Let rice cook on a medium high flame for 3 minutes.

4. Stir then lower the flame to simmer for 45 minutes or until well done. (Be sure to keep an eye on this rice too, stirring it frequently as you may have to add a bit more water towards the end of it’s cooking time because this rice soaks up the water faster as it gets closer to being well done.)

Directions For Basmati Rice:

1. Soak rice for a few minutes, then rinse and strain water off completely.

2. Add strained rice to a 3-quart sauce pan and the other ingredients and spices then add just enough hot boiling water or hot boiling vegetable broth to cover the rice, no more.

3. Cover pan with it’s lid and let rice cook on a medium high flame for about 3 minutes.

4. Stir rice well, then lower the flame to a simmer for 6 minutes or until all the water has evaporated and rice is done. (You can check the sides of the rice in the pot to see how far down the water is evaporated every few minutes. So be careful not to let this rice burn or overcook.)

5. Fluff rice with a large fork once done and cover with lid.


Add the cooked wild rice to the pot of the cooked basmati rice (pour it right in over the top.) But gently mix in the wild rice (don’t over mix) just enough so that the wild rice is somewhat incorporated in with the basmati rice pretty fairly. Cover and set aside on warm back side of the stove to help to keep it warm.

Directions For Mushrooms in Cream Cheese Sauce:

1. Add bell peppers, onions and oil to a ten inch frying pan and allow to brown for about 2-3 minutes. Stir frequently on medium flame.

2. Next add in the mushrooms and seasonings, stir and allow to cook for about 5 minutes stirring frequently on medium flame.

3. Cover the skillet with it’s lid and turn the flame to a low simmer and allow to cook for about 10-15 minutes or until mushrooms are tender.

4. Once done, add the cream cheese and stir in until the cheese is melted and incorporated into the mushrooms, onions and bell peppers.

~Now you may serve the rice and the mushrooms onto each dinner plate side by side.~

Add a dollop of cold sour cream on top of the mushrooms if you like and on the rice add some buttery corn bread crumbles.

~I also love this rice dish served side by side with a crock pot of cooked baby Lima beans and it’s liquor and a slice of old fashioned jalapeno corn bread.~


White flour, white rice, white salt and white sugar is considered to be poor food for the body. So for many years we cut our intake of all four of them in half whenever and where ever possible. We also try to replace them with better alternatives. So I thought to add more wild rice to our diets.

~Kindly Enjoy~

~~~Happy Holiday’s to Everyone!~~~

Hot Water…… The Best Medicine (Dr. Sebi)

Hot water makes the best breakfast….

~Dr. Sebi~

Drinking water is good enough, but when I heard it from Dr. Sebi that drinking plain hot water is the best breakfast… well I was sold and you know what I did next. Research!

The benefits of drinking warm water the first thing in the morning (while the stomach is empty) and the last thing at night:

1. Burns out body fat by moving metabolism and breaks down adipose tissues lying under the skin.

2. Clears nasal congestion and dissolves phlegm.

3. Prevents premature aging and helps with blood circulation.

4. Aids digestion in that it helps dissolve and removes fat deposits in the inner wall of the intestine (fat deposits cause cancer.)

5. Is a body regulator.

6. It purifies and detoxifies the body and moves toxic materials out of the body.

7. Keeps scalp hydrated and fights against dandruff.

8. Aids in menstrual cramps.

9. Soothes constipation.

10. Good for hair cells and promotes hair growth.

11. Keeps skin free from acne and pimples.

12. Keeps the body hydrated and warm.

13. Enhances body circulation and breaks down deposits in the nervous system.

Pardes Main Hai Mera Dil: A Pleasantly New Show



Pardes Main Hai Mera Dil means my heart lives in a foreign land.

This new Indian soap is so amazing. I am loving every episode. Drashti Dhami is so beautiful as she portrays Naina Batra and I am in love with Arjun Bijlani’s charming smile as he portrays Raghav Madan Mehra.

Naina Batra spends her life taking care of her sick mother Asha (Alka Amin) but one day was forced by her mother to leave India in pursuit of a relationship with a guy named Amit Mehrotra who turns out to be no good. He married another girl for citizenship and left Naina in the cold there in Austria. Thank goodness she had a brother and sister in law already living there and they took her in. She met and made friends with Raghav who she kept bumping into from time to time and later she winds up getting a marriage proposal from this same rich family that helped her family by donating money for her mothers heart surgery. It’s a funny thing fate that brought Naina and Raghav together. Raghav is a good guy and I hope to see him wind up marrying Naina instead of Veer the spoiled rich boy who parties all the time and Raghav always cover for him and does all the work as far as the family business is concerned. It is obvious how much he loves his adopted grandmother Indermati but fell from her graces because of a misunderstanding surrounding Sanjana. I hope to see him gain back his grandmothers heart and the truth about what happened with Sanjana be a thing of the past because it is obvious that he has won her heart indeed.

On Prepping: Get It Girl!

My Prepping Question this month is:

If you had one month to prepare yourself and your family for an economy crash/downfall what would you do and how would you prepare?


One of the number one tools for prepping in my book is to have a good can opener. Believe me I have gone through a bunch of no good can openers, even the ones that are battery operated. But the best one for me thus far has been the an expensive faberware can opener. Yes it cost a pretty penny because I usually never had to spend so much on a can opener but this one was well worth the money. I think I will get an extra one as well. You know what they say in the prepping world. Having two of something is as if you had one and having one of something is as if you had none. So it’s wise to have at least two of everything I guess.

Also this month I wanted to start to work on several levels, so we started a small fall garden and so far it is coming along so well. Then we made a few purchases like….

*a box of 12 quart sized canning jars with lids, we got a box of extra lids and rims for this set of mason jars

*a large Ball 21 quart enamel water bath canning pot and a jar rack with handles (which can hold 7 one quart jars, 9 one pint jars or 13 half pint jars)

*Ball Utensil Set: one jar funnel, one Jar lifter, one bubble remover and one head space tool (which helps you handle hot jars and liquids, helps fill jars and measure head space and release air bubbles.)

*Ball Blue Book Guide to Preserving

But we still need to get:

More canning jars with lids, tattlers, lots of pickling salt, white vinegar, pectin, pickling spices, canning lid rack, plastic storage caps, citric acid, labels, food saver jar sealer.

Our fall garden goals was met:

We purchased 5 gigantic bags of garden soil, 1 large bag of top soil, 1 large bag of lime granules and collard, turnip, mustard and kale seeds and 12 small starter pots of collard plants. We mixed up the soil with the lime granules and planted the turnip seeds and the collard plants in a raised bed. And I tell you in in one week’s time we have a beautiful green garden growing of turnips and collard greens already. They look so beautiful. We had a few very cold nights this week so we took straw from around the pine trees and spread it around the garden to keep the frost off of them.

But we still need to get:

Carrots, cabbage, garlic and onion seeds. I also saw a tower garden pot I hope to get to continue growing herbs indoors. (I also save seeds from everything I can and put the seeds in the freezer.)

Our monthly supermarket buys:

We picked up at least 2 bags each of red, black and green lentils, red bean, black beans, small baby lima beans and black eye peas. Several cans of cream style corn, regular corn, green beans, vegetarian beans, Campbell soups, corned beef hash, sardines and more boxes and boxes of table salt and a huge bag of basmati rice. Each time we go to the store we always pick up either, rice, beans or some kind of canned goods to add to our food storage.

Next month’s goals are:

To Start on Oils, Spirits and Soaping Supplies:

I’d like to purchase my first set of soaping supplies so I can make my own soaps. This will be next months goals along with stocking up on medicinal tinctures and spirits (wines, liquors and various kinds of spirits to use for bartering)

*a good soap making book

* basic of soap supplies and tools and use the old crock pots we already have.

In the past we would buy lots of different brands of soaps and put them in a huge plastic container which right now is half way filled. But this week we picked up a huge box of Irish spring soap to add to the boxes of dove, lever 2000, and ivory soaps in there.


I think about the people in Venezuela and wonder what would happen if the same thing happened here in America? What would people do? The crime levels are already kind of high and to have increased crime would be so devastating. I hate to think about people dying from starvation and sickness at alarming rates due to an economy crash. So I worry all the time about what would happen here in America if the same happens here. That’s why I focus so much on getting ready and try to encourage others to do the same.

My heart breaks for those people who are starving there. And the ones that had a bit of food already stored at home and came to realize that what little they did store up was not enough to meet their needs. I saw this woman crying with her small children and trying to figure out how to make the few items she had left on her kitchen pantry last. I think about things like that and wish I was a part of a prepping group where we could put our heads together on these types of things. I guess that’s why I always read a lot of the prepping websites and books so I could get good ideas but some of them seem to be so overwhelming. Like for instance I know we need to get a wood cook stove but it’s not something we could get right now. So I do what I can with what I got. But I always think about having one. We did see a few in a couple of stores but we are unsure as to which one would be the best one because there are so many different kinds out there. So I am thinking to save the money and just take a pick and hope for the best, then put it away in case it is needed one day.

There’s Power In Numbers: ~Ek Maa Jo Lakhon Ke Live Bani Amma~


I heard a poem during childhood, I’ll recite it to you.


One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight and nine lived together.

However they fought a lot.

Nine mocked eight saying it was smaller then it.

Eight laughed at seven and teased it for being small.

Seven looked at six and bragged about being bigger than it.

All of them were fighting among themselves.

Everyone was belittling each other.

Poor one, had no option but to stand there helplessly.

It roamed about aimlessly.

It met zero somewhere which was neglected by everyone.

One asked it who it was.

Zero replied that it was worthless.

One empathized with zero as it was smallest of all.

The two of them united and became ten and their lives changed forever.

Did you understand anything?

Listen til the time one and zero were alone, nobody took them seriously

but when the two came together they became ten.

Nobody could bother them after that.

Everyone from nine to two bowed before them.

You people have to do the same.

Responsibility: Ek Maa Jo Lakhon Ke Live Bani Amma

Faizal, do you know there are some plants which don’t die

even if you don’t water them regularly.

Instead, they grow thorns.

So, it is time for me to give you something

to make you responsible.

…..This is the key to your first work place.
