Last week, I’ve received a lovely invitation from the lovely Noaf to attend an indoor garden party at Dar Usha launching the collection of Sotra Boutique.
The atmosphere was really lovely, a cozy indoor garden party with the amazing collection of Sotra Boutique plus Dar Usha’s other collections.
We enjoyed chatting with each other, meeting the lovely owner of Dar Usha (Hiba) & having lavender gelato (yum yum).
The collection is really beautiful & elegant … Go ahead & check the pictures! If you like what you see, don’t hesitate! Visit Dar Usha at Burj Jassim.
Today Project X started, 6 teams competed. 3 only qualified, too bad we weren’t among them, but we had lots of fun, enjoyed the cooking part with the secret ingredient, meeting the judges & getting their advices regarding each dish & the lovely team who helped us all time.
Round 1 was kinda easier than round 2. Round 1′s Secret Ingredient was Mango. So we went with Chicken Salad with Mango & Raspberry sauce. Round 2′s Secret Ingredient was Blue Cheese which was very difficult to use it as a main ingredient but we managed. Another secret ingredient came after 20 minutes from the start of the 2nd round & it was honey. Our dish was Grilled Shrimp with Creamy Blue Cheese Sauce, Steamed Rice with kefir & coconut & Green Salad as a side dish. I liked the 2nd dish more than the 1st one.
6 hours of cooking, it was really exhausting … but fun :D
Even though we didn’t qualify for the finale, we had fun & won some gifts. There were no losers :D
Thank you guys for a wonderful evening!
