new ideas, fun lessons, healthy choices


In Israel, the malls have a feature on Thursdays and Fridays. You can buy Home cooked foods, ready meals to cater for every member of the family, cakes, cookies, relishes and homemade breads. There are also fabulous gift counters with novelty items for babies, teenagers and jewelry and new "on the Market" items.

One that fascinated me was the tea bags with a difference The company is called "TEA SHAPE" The green Teas come from China and are presented in a ball shape. You just pop the ball into a jug of boiling water and the flower opens and it looks great, has a delightful fragrance and taste You can buy the lovely teapots, glass cups and mugs ,milk jugs and a variety of glassware to add to the joy of Tea Ceremonies..
Call 054 661 4050 for details

.The "Goody's Granola " bar is the brain child of Debra. The granolas are fresh, tasty and with natural ingredients. To find out where Debra sells call her at 052 4393030
Granola is a good breakfast with yogurt, buttermilk, soya milk or even mixed into cut up fruits. If you are having guests for a light brunch, you can serve granola with yogurt and extra nuts and strawberries on top.
I use granola as a base for a tart as well. Just grind a cupful with a little butter or oil and press in to a dish. Put it into the refrigerator for an hour, then fill and bake it

When I cook oats for breakfast, I add Granola when I serve it.
For an interesting Cole Slaw, mix three tablespoons of granola into the salad, as you serve it..
Remember to give kids a little dish of granola for school lunch . It is the best snack with yogurt or with cut up fruit. This is ideal for the office too.

The teas and Granola can be bought at the mini mall of Mismar Hasharon on a Friday morning.
