I have found two new favorite mags to read in my few minutes of quiet (you know those rare moments for a mommy when you are finished reading all your "supposed-to-be read" parenting / spiritual growth / devotional and teaching books) :) They are local and "lekker" (Afrikaans word meaning "great / good / wonderful / fantastic" ) as we say here in S.A.
"Plum" is a new recipe magazine which is inexpensive (about R21-95) and is filled with gorgeous, easy recipes with the most beautiful pictures. How yummy does that chocolate pudding look! I was soooo surprised to read that it is a chocolate rice pudding. Anyone ever tried that? Please leave your comment if you have. I would love to hear. Hmmm ... never imagined mixing chocolate with rice pudding?! If I brave it, I will let you know :) I just love the cover of this edition - the turquoise and pink look so lovely together. They don't seem to have a website yet where I could look for some pics to show you. When I choose one of their recipes, I'll take some pics and let you know the family's response. Maybe I will let the picture be my kiddies faces upon taste! hee hee - My girls do DRAMATIC really well. The face either screams delight or is scrunched up in disgust :)
My other new favorite is "Home". Their slogan is "your practical guide to beautiful living". I love the handy DIY tips and everything featured is beautiful, yet affordable. They also have a gardening section which is so do-able and helpful! I'm one of those gals that needs serious help in the garden! And they have a wonderful recipe section too (such a well rounded mag!) and I just discovered their website where you can find some wonderful tips. Find it here.
Hope you get a chance to pour yourself a cup of tea like me and find some peaceful reading time. Happy Saturday everyone.
All my Love,
