I cheered and shouted and shouted and cheered some more - the result is a bad throat...but what the heck, We Won!!!! Now, another big game is on next Saturday, Germany vs Argentina.
For the last few days, I have been continuously humming the official FIFA World Cup song. Its so catchy and peppy. I loved the video as well, especially the little girl in blue, towards the end of the video. She is simply the best in the whole video, so cute and innocent and her expressions are to die for :-) You can have a look here.
The meaning and the history behind the song "Waka Waka" can be found here.
On the food front, I made a very quick and easy drink. Its a favourite summer drink at my place. When I was a kid, I would often visit my native place Rajasthan during the summers. And Rajasthan Summers are really harsh, so to beat the heat, mom would make this quick drink, which we all loved.
150 grams - rose petal spread (gulkand) for more details see here
1 litre - water
250 ml - sparkling water
sugar if required
- Mix well the gulkand and the water in a jar. Let it chill in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours. Mix the liquid once again and strain with the help of a sieve.
- Fill 3/4 th of the glass with gulkand water and then pour some sparkling water into the glass.
- Serve immediately.
Not only does this drink look good and taste good, it is also very healthy for the tummy during summer.
