Unbaked Banana & Custard Tart

This is truly the best unbaked tart there is. The topping is the most delicious part, because that’s where all the condensed milk is.

You will need  the following:  (for 6 to 8 portions)
  • 1 litre milk
  • 90 ml custard powder
  • 90 ml sugar
  • 1 packet (200 g) Tennis biscuits
  • 250 ml lemon juice
  • 7 or 8 bananas
  • 2 tins (385 g each) condensed milk
  • 200 ml lemon juice
How to:
First make the custard: Heat milk in a saucepan. Mix custard powder and sugar and add a bit of the warm milk. Mix until a paste is formed. Add paste to the rest of the warm milk and keep stirring until the custard thickens. Pour custard into a bowl and cover with a piece of clingfilm. This will prevent a skin from forming. Now take a round dish with a diameter of about 20 cm, or a square dish, also with a diameter of about 20 cm. Dip biscuits in the 250 ml lemon juice. Place a layer of biscuits in the bottom of the dish. Add a layer of sliced bananas, followed by another layer of biscuits. Pour all the custard over the top. Add another layer of biscuits, dipped again in lemon juice, followed by another layer of bananas. Mix condensed milk with 200 ml lemon juice. The condensed milk will thicken as you stir. Spread over the tart, and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.

How you CAN...

The romantic sunset

The romantic sunset
The sun is beautiful when fresh it rises,
like an explosion throwing us a hello!
- Blessed is he who with love
! Greet glorious sunset over a dream

I remember! I saw everything, flower, source, groove,
If swoon in his eye like a heart that beats ...
- Run to the horizon, it's late, run fast,
to catch at least one oblique beam!

But I continue in vain God who withdraws;
The irresistible Night established his empire,
Black, wet, sad and full of chills

smell of swimming tomb in darkness,
and my timid foot crumples at the edge of the swamp,
toads and Unforeseen cold snails.

Charles Baudelaire (1821-1867)

Speak Gently

Speak Gently

Speak gently! it is better far

To rule by love than fear

Speak gently; let no harsh word mar

The good we may do here!

Speak gently to the little child!

Its love be sure to gain;

Teach it in accents soft and mild;

It may not long remain.

Speak gently to the young, for they

Will have enough to bear;

Pass through this life as best they may,

‘Tis full of anxious care!

Speak gently to the aged one,

Grieve not the care-worn heart;

Whose sands of life are nearly run,

Let such in peace depart!

Speak gently, kindly to the poor;

Let no harsh tone be heard;

They have enough they must endure,

Without an unkind word!

Speak gently to the erring; know

The must have toiled in vain;

Pechance unkindness made them so;

Oh, win them back again.

Speak gently; Love doth whisper low

The vows that true hearts bind;

And gently Friendship’s accents flow;

Affection’s voice is kind.

Speak gently; ’tis a little thing

Dropped in the heart’s deep well;

The good, the joy, that it may bring,

Eternity shall tell.

Good Night...

Good night, sleep tight,
Don't let the bedbugs bite,
Wake up bright
In the morning light
To do what's right
With all your might.
Gudnite my dear
I'm glad I have u near

4 da many things u've brought me
There's nothing I shall fear

Gudnite my dear
Let my songs wipe ur tears

We've certainly got each other
& we always shall through da years

Gudnite my dear
Let my prayer bring u cheer

Da moon is bright & da stars r shining
& day bless us always here

Sow Mercy

I can see her now, her weathered skin
Old straw hat and crooked grin
And she said child, let's make this garden grow.
Let's till the soil, and pull some weeds
And here's your bag of precious seeds
'Cause grandma's got a secret you should know
You always reap exactly what you sow

Sow mercy
Sow grace
Sow kindness
Sow faith

Words are like water, sprinkled with love
You will harvest all your heart's been dreaming of
Sow mercy

We knelt right there and she took my hand
That patch of dirt was Holy land
And she said child I learned this long ago
Oh, you can bless or curse
You can live or die
You choose the crop you want in life
That's the greatest secret Grandma knows
You always reap exactly what you sow

Sow mercy
Sow grace
Sow kindness
Sow faith

'Cause one day God forbid, you act a fool
And fall down hard and fast, 'cause life is cruel
If you ever reached to help a friend
A hand you held might lift you up again
What goes around comes back around you know
You always reap exactly what you sow

Sow mercy
Sow grace
Sow kindness
Sow faith


Every boy needs a Dog, and every dog needs a Boy...

I lie belly-up

In the sunshine, happier than
You ever will be.

Today I sniffed
Many dog butts—I celebrate
By kissing your face.

I sound the alarm!
Paperboy—come to kill us all—
Look! Look! Look! Look! Look!

I sound the alarm!
Garbage man—come to kill us all—
Look! Look! Look! Look! Look!

I lift my leg and
Whiz on each bush. Hello, Spot—
Sniff this and weep.

I Hate my choke chain—
Look, world, they strangle me! Ack
Ack Ack Ack Ack Ack!

Sleeping here, my chin
On your foot—no greater bliss—well,
Maybe catching cats.

Look in my eyes and
Deny it. No human could
Love you as much I do.

Good Morning

May you wake up this morning refreshed as ever. 
May your day be just as wonderful as your smile at the moment. 
And may you be showered with lots and lots of love and attention all day long. 

Good morning to you!

A Parent's Prayer for Patience

By Rabbi Naomi Levy | Prayer 

When my child tests me, teach me, God, how to respond with wisdom.
When I grow irritable, send me patience.
When my fury rages, teach me the power of restraint.
When I become fixed in my ways, teach me to be flexible.
When I take myself too seriously, bless me with a sense of humor.
When I am exhausted, fill me with strength.
When I am frightened, fill me with courage.
When I am stubborn, teach me how to bend.
When I act hypocritically, help me to align my deeds with my values.
When mundane pressures threaten to overwhelm me, help me to remember how truly blessed I am.
When I lose my way, God, please guide me on the road back to joy, back to love, back to peace, back to you. 

Cleared paths

Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is 
old he will not depart from it  (Proverbs 22: 6).

A little girl followed his father vistoriava a new 
planting. She walked exactly where his father went. At 
any given time she talks to her father: "Dad, if you 
can avoid the mud on your feet I will not Mess me 
mud! " The father who loves his children looking floor in a 
clean way.

Are we aware that we are responsible for the life 
and future of our children? We have sought to be a model or 
example for them? We have strived to give them a 
proper education so that they will be victorious and happy?

The children often follow their parents' footsteps. See what 
they do and try to imitate them. They are your heroes, the 
people who judge and try to perfect, in every way, 
look like them.

A parent living drunk can lead children to the same 
path. A parent who does not respect anybody can not 
prevent your children are equal. A father who lies in 
front of the children do not get to make these are 
always true. He may be the reason for a future 
full of victorious or losses to your home.

We need to care for our children, lead them by 
way of honesty and respect for truth and righteousness, 
purity and humility. We need to illuminate the pathways 
through which will pass, and with much love and dedication, 
teach them the way of God. Safe in the hands of the Lord, 
they shall walk safely, strengthen hope, 
grow in faith, hold good dreams will be more than 
happy winners and live.

If you want your children to be happy and blessed, 
avoid the "paths of mud" ... walk by "lim pathspos."

Good Morning - It's FRIDAY!!!

It's difficult to even know what many of your limiting
Beliefs are because they are so well entrenched. 
Yet day after day, they hold you back and 
Obscure your view of life's best possibilities.

To set yourself free of those limiting beliefs, 
Crowd them out with inspiration. 
The more inspired you are, the more Easily 
You'll dissolve the beliefs that hold you back.

Focus on a beautiful, wonderful, meaningful possibility.
Feel how you must let go of your limiting beliefs in order
To fully imagine and comprehend that possibility.

See that ultimately, the only thing that really holds you
Back is your belief that you cannot move forward. Once
You've let that go, you free yourself to soar.

Anything is possible. And underneath all those illusions of
Limitation, you know it without a doubt.

Trade your limitations for inspirations. 
And fulfill the Best that is within you.

Pumpkin Carving Prayer

LLERRAH Ecards <

Dear God,

As I carve my pumpkin, 
help me say this prayer:

Open my mind, 
so I can learn about You;
(Cut the top of the pumpkin)

Take away all my sin 
and forgive me for 
the wrong things I do;
(Clean out the inside)

Open my eyes, 
so Your Love I will see;
(Cut two eyes)

I'm sorry for turning up my nose 
to all You've given me;
(Cut a nose)

Open my ears,
so Your Word I will hear;
(Cut two ears)

Open my mouth,
so I can tell others You're near;
(Cut a mouth)

Let Your Light shine
in all I say and do!
(Place a candle and light)


Happy Halloween

Goodnight my friends...
