As I sit thinking what to write, I thought why not browse FB and see what are people up to on this beautiful Saturday afternoon. Some are holidaying, some are gossiping, while others are celebrating, a few are physically training. No matter what the reason is, all are happy. All of them leave their worries behind and do manage to smile when said ‘Cheese’ . I think that’s the beauty of weekend after a grumpy 5 days at work we look for a reason to smile. So, why does those 5 days make it so stress full that we barely have any energy left to even put a smile on our face which could actually help us look young and cheerful. Is it your boss or your long travel hours to work, or deadlines or the fact that you have to prepare for a long boring meeting?. No matter what the reason is we all look forward to that 2 days of bliss. So here is a simple weekend treat for you and your loved ones a recipe adapted from the BBC good food.
