Liquid repellent fitted table clothes.

Like any child that liked to dine on roadside, I too jumped with joy when the mini bus in which we were travelling stopped by a small lakeside. Oh, I should tell you that I am reliving my first picnic 46 years ago.

We expected to be seated on the lawn but contrary to our expectation, tables and chairs were unfolded and fresh cotton clothes were thrown over the tables. Sadly, our joy was short lived because the wind was very strong and the table clothes and napkins were blown away and we all were ordered to collect them and rearrange on the table.

I wondered why table covers were not neatly tucked in. I suppose at that time, flowing table clothes were in vogue.

I recalled all of this three days before when I participated in a very formal dinner. The host was a good friend of mine and she beamed when I openly expressed my appreciation for table arrangements. She told me the table covers and napkins are of Egyptian cotton and fitted the tables snugly.

Can you imagine how such table clothes would look? You can shop for a range of fitted tablecloths from here .While browsing the site, do not forget to click on “Liquid repellent fitted table clothes”. You would be surprised how a fitted table cover can repel liquids!

Diet Shakes that will help you lose weight.

Don’t be surprised to read this. I know if you are reading this either you are worried about your over weight or you are concerned about the obesity of your spouse or child or parents.

Milk shakes and fruit shakes do help one to lose weight provided they are prepared properly.

Here are some recipes:
Hey, do you know that you can add low-fat yogurt in your smoothies? Whether you are making a water-based (ice) shake or a dairy-based (2 % milk) diet shake recipe, a little bit of yogurt can make a big difference to the taste because  yogurt adds a nice creamy consistency to your diet shake recipes, and I wholeheartedly recommend that you try it in your favorite smoothie recipe the first chance you get.

Strawberry-Orange-Banana Diet Shake Recipes
•             Some orange juice – about 2 cups or so
•             Some sliced bananas – 1 or 2
•             Some strawberries -- a cup or so
•             Some ice – about a cup
•             A container of strawberry-banana low fat yogurt

Mandarin-Mango Diet Shake Recipes
•             Some mandarin orange pieces – 2 cans or so
•             Some cut up mangoes – 2 mangos is about right
•             Some ice – about a cup
•             Protein supplements from the nutrition store—follow the label directions
•             A container of mango-flavored low fat yogurt

I confess these recipes are not mine but borrowed (no need to return of course) from the Internet.
