Galia Melon and Strawberry Smoothie & The ramblings of a Book lover !

Makes 4 cups
       I'm not sure if a smoothie actually qualifies for a recipe :) It's a perfect post for a lazy person like me,clean the fruits ,chop it,add to the blender and 'Blend it like 'whoever u want''.Blending actually reminds me of a Will Smith movie where he searches for his Blender the whole time :) I was happy to see many of you guys commenting about how much you love reading .So just thought that I should mention about the book that I was reading,now u give me a chance to ramble,I'll grab it :) I was reading a book called 'Gravity' by 'Tess Garristen' .A very interesting novel, a medical thriller actually where a scientific experiment goes haywire in a space station. I really loved it as it gives a very beautiful picture about space,space stations and astronauts. Though towards the end it was like watching the movie
Aliens and got me spooked:)
        I love books and I keep stocking them up. I generally love reading thrillers,historical novels, fiction and philosophical novels. I love books from Ken Follet,Lee Child and Paulo Coelho,to name a few. Another author who I've recently started enjoying is Mary Higgins Clark,as a kid I loved Nancy Drew and Clark's books are like Nancy Drew for grown ups. As a kid I used to love classics too,but these days I've lost interest in them.I actually thought that you love classics as you grow older & mature,but looks like it's the other way with me. I've been blessed with a beautiful library near my house.It's the state library,stocked with German books but they do have a  very good foreign language section.We find amazing books in English,French and Turkish. I simply love the library and the smell of old books :) If given a choice I would always buy a second hand book rather than a new book : )        
        I've generally noticed that people think that women read only romance or drama.I know this nice library in commercial street in Bangalore.The first day I visited them, the librarian got me registered and took me to a section full of drama & romance and asked me to help myself. I do read drama occasionally and I don't have anything against those novels,but I seriously don't understand this prejudice :) So just wondering, what genre of books do you enjoy reading and who are your favorite authors ,I'll be really glad to know.So off to the smoothie. A very healthy and delightful combo.....



You'll Need:
Galia Melon - 1
Straw berries - 12 - 15
Sugar or honey - 2 tbsp

Method:
-Cut the Galia Melon,remove the seeds and scoop out the flesh.
-Clean the strawberries and remove the stem.Chop them.
-Add the flesh of galia melon,strawberries and sugar to a blender and blend until done.


Thanks for stopping by ! Happy Blending !

  3. I am not among the many who reads novels and fictions. For me, its's female magazines which has almost all contents - cooking, stories, sharing, fashion etc etc. I also read papers everyday though the news is screened and slanted towards the government.

    At one time, I was into smoothies and after 2 months my fruit blender has become a permanent fixture in my cupboard. Just lazy to do the washing after the blending. I am sure about galia melon but our local melons can be used too. Its a beautiful smoothie and the punch can wake anyone up.

  6. That is one yummy, colorful and refreshing smoothie, although never heard of galia melon!!
    It was interesting to read about your favorite authors and your choice of book!!
    Also which library are you talking about in Commercial street, Bangalore?
    During my college days I used to read novels, fiction and stuff from college library but now I read only non-fiction, leadership and motivational genre of book. Bored of reading romantic stories from novels, hehe!! I don't have one favorite but there are quite a lot , Habit of Winning by Prakash Iyer is something I recommend to one and all! Next, I'm targeting the book "The Secret"!

    2. Even kirneepalam is new to me :-)
      Hey it is OK, I will figure the library out, there cannot be more than 2 in that area, since the area is very small!! Do read Habit of Winning though!
