Happy birthday to me!

I am official thirty! Cough cough! A perfect time to start lieing about my age... How does 25 sound to all of you?
By the way, i have lied many times about my age in my life. Completely unintentionally, many times i actually went up and i used to say i was 27 from the age 26-28. I guess i liked the number.  I am so weird about some of those things. I never remember what year happened what, i am horrible with names, but i always remember star signs and phone numbers. When people ask me how old i am, or how old Melina Nefeli is, i always have to pause and think for enough seconds to make people look weird at me.
I am writing this at 4.30 in the morning and i think i should go and lie down. I can't wait to wake up as a birthday girl and get pampered and have fun.
Ps. Google wished me happy birthday with virtual cupcakes, how cool is that?


Pms is a bitch...or is that just me?

You know you are pmsing, when you see pictures of your baby and cry for how fast she has grown while she is only 13 months old.
You know you are pmsing when you almost bought a ridiculously expensive puppy, after going to the pet shop for just some frog food.
You know you are pmsing, when you get irritated with your husband when he takes you for a ride to enjoy the afternoon.
You know you are pmsing, when you yell at your husband because he could not smell the cat urine on one of your clean underwear.
You know you are pmsing, when you drink a whole bottle of a two llitre light soda in one seating.
You know you are pmsing when you are bloated enough to have pregnancy flashbacks.
You know you are pmsing when you think burping extremely loud and for a weirdly long period of time in front of your husband is appropriate.
Yes these all happened today.
I know what you are thinking..I am such a catch. He is so lucky to have me.etc etc....


Stevia angel food cake!

I know this is a horrible picture but that is what you get when you have a hungry photographer. The thing is, i did it! I made angel food cake without sugar or tartar cream(because in Greece when you ask for the latter, you get the reaction you would get if you were asking for a human liver!). It has only 2Tbs baking powder, 2 Tbs of lemon juice, a pinch of salt, lemon zest, 1 cup of flour,1 cup of stevia, vanilla extract(in powder, no oil) and 11 egg whites. It tastes wonderful and if my calculations are indeed correct it has less than 500 calories the entire cake(that is because a lot of the flour was scattered while i was mixing it in!). The impressive thing is, that although it is so light, it is very filling, probably because of all the protein in it.
This is what i made to celebrate the First Harvest. And because i was feeling a bit wild i used 2Tbs of confectioners sugar to make just a teeny tiny bit of lemon glaze. I served it with berries and everybody was quite impressed. None of us had ever tried an angel food cake. In Greece it is not a common cake at all.
That dessert is definitely here to stay, although it is such a mess to make. If you have n't tried it, do so. It is so worth all the trouble. The original recipe without the stevia and all the right ingredients is here at Octoberfarm. Go ahead to see how much more impressive this cake can be, if you make it like you should. But, even if you are like me and always on a diet, you can always make the disgusting  even healthier version. No, i am kidding. Even stevia could not ruin this cake. It is that good!
