Shonda Giveth, Shonda Taketh Away!

McDreamy is dead

Last night Shonda Rhimes the creator and writer of everything worth watching on TV on Thursdays yanked my heart out of my chest. After a decade of emotional ups and downs while watching Grey’s Anatomy, Shonda finally put an end to Meredith and Derek’s love affair. Sigh…

We all knew it was going to happen at some point. It’s Grey’s Anatomy! When people realize they have finally got what they needed all their lives they DIE!!! Remember McSteamy and Lexi or George. Now we can add Derek to that list. I’ve been reading a lot of tweets since last night’s episode and it seems like a lot of fans are upset and threatening to not watch the show anymore (yeah, right!!)

Regardless of this tragedy, I’m sure Ms. Rhimes has a plan for Meredith’s love life. What do you predict is going to happen next??

Imagine how amazing it would be to convert a bare unworkable space and design a functioning living area out of it! Continue reading

Lil’ Bit Of Basil In Ma Life….

Basil Plant

When it comes to making food at home, I’ve been super lazy. I use to be inspired by random things during grocery shopping trips and rush home to cook. Lately, I barely go for grocery trips (Thanks mom!), so I might not as inspired to put a meal together. No matter how simple it could be.

The other day I happen to join my mom on a grocery trip and I saw a table full of these little basil pots and I had to buy one. Little I knew, this basil pot would be a start of a crazy run of rustic breakfasts and snacks. Give a hungry Persian girl some inspiration and she’ll run with it…. I’m going to call it, rustic Persian fusion!
