Eyeglasses for me!

Sometimes I am having headache after facing the monitor in a few hours. I am sleepy and I am dizzy. I am far sighted. Mom told me to go to an optical clinic for eye check up. I think mom is right I need an eyeglasses. While I was surfing in the net, I found out that Zenni Optical in the New York Times?! The New York Times featured Zenni Optical in their new post Seeing Straight Without Breaking Bank as the cheapest eyeglasses online because you can buy prescription eyeglasses for only $8! That’s amazing huh..
I like this one because it fits to my eyes.

Mango Float

1 cup heavy cream, chilled
2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk, chilled
1/2 cup mashed ripe mango
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Thin slices of ripe mangoes
Graham Crackers or Slices of Chiffon cake

Garnish: (optional)
Mango slices
Cashew nuts or any chopped nuts you may prefer to use
Maraschino cherries

1. Blend cream and sweetened condensed milk together. Add mashed mango. Add vanilla. Set aside, preferably keeping it chilled until needed. (You may opt to use more sweetened condensed milk for a sweeter taste).

2. In a square 9 x 9-inch or a rectangular 9 x 13-inch Pyrex or any transparent dish, assemble graham crackers and cream mixture by arranging the crackers on the bottom of the dish.

3. Spread one third of the cream mixture, arrange some mango slices, then put another layer of the crackers. Repeat the process, ending with the cream mixture on top.

4. Sprinkle with chopped nuts (optional). Garnish with more slices of mangoes or maraschino cherries for a more festive appeal.

5. Chill before serving.

I prepare this recipe last Christmas because this is one of my hubby’s favorite desert.

In Alexandra Drane's words, we need to "start talking. Engage With Grace: The One Slide Project was designed with one simple goal: to help get the conversation about end of life experience started. The idea is simple: Create a tool to help get people talking. One Slide, with just five questions on it. Five questions designed to help get us talking with each other, with our loved ones, about our preferences."
