Summer treats: lavender lemonade

I have to share this with you. Last night, I checked out A Cup of Jo, one of my daily blog reads and she posted about the best lemonade! The recipe was shared by Ashley of Not Without Salt 

It being summer and Ramadan, I knew this would be the best thirst quencher for after futour.

I followed the recipe exactly but added 1 tablespoon of culinary lavender to the sugar syrup in the pan. Look how pink it is! And it smells wonderfully too.

You should definitely try it! like now!

I meant to post about Food Revolution almost two months ago, when I volunteered as a photographer at the group’s first event in Kuwait. Clearly, I didn’t get around to posting anything about the event! I volunteered at another workshop yesterday and this time I’m not putting off writing about it, mainly because I firmly believe in this group’s cause in wanting to encourage  healthy living.

The Food Revolution is a global movement initiated by Jamie Oliver to change the way people eat.

Video: Prime Burger

Check out this wonderful and well-made mini film on Prime Burger, a diner in New York City that is over 70 years old. Some of the people working there are as old as the establishment and have been working for 50 plus years. What’s so sad is that the building which the restaurant is located in was sold back in May and now they are forced to close and relocate.
