Peacock costume

If I could share the colors on the walls and my other home decoration material with you, you will definitely comment by saying that I am a nature lover. After all a picture is worth a thousand words and this is the first comment that I usually get from anyone visiting my home and of course the people who do not know me. Nature is a very important part of my life. Growing up in countryside left me with great bonding with nature and that is something which I always try to bring into my life whenever and in as many ways possible.

One of the ways that I find we can also inspire our kids to take on this route is via costumes.
The young minds are impressionable and often immediately see, notice and admire the external beauty since the internal goodness is out of reach of their worldly knowledge. I and my husband on every Halloween with the help of costumes introduce our children, who are born and now growing in a city to more and more animals and birds. This Halloween I am really excited since it is for the first time that the process has reversed, there was a request by our children which we are going to fulfill by dressing up in a peacock costume.

Corn casserole recipe

he so called evolved methods of cooking have no doubt worked wonders on the account of saving us tons of time while cooking but we in the process of doing so have lost control over preserving nutrition of the food that we are cooking. Imagine if the simple task of making something edible takes out all the goodness that nature wanted to provide us with in the first place. This seems really pointless. The best way to preserve the natural goodness without having to eat anything raw is perhaps the method of baking.

It is a well known fact that other methods often reduce the health content of food whereas baking preserves it and adds to the taste too. The portion of my life that I spend cooking in my kitchen has changed a lot over the past years as I have taken up baking in a big way. The first time I mentioned this to my mother, she thought I was going to bake cakes and pastries and then I had to convince her that there is much more than that to baking. My oven is a tool that I can use to make delicacies as well as every day recipes like a corn casserole recipe.
