Default Bernaise sauce

I'm looking for an easy to make or ready made bearnaise sauce... something like: Knorr® Classic Sauces – Béarnaise

I'm open to other suggestions for Bearnaise sauce (and I don't have the patience to make a proper one from scratch, though I may try to me a simplified recipe).

Thanks,

D.

Okay, I know that McDonalds milkshakes are not universally available, but does anyone know why they don't seem to be available in Dubai ?

The last two weekend on my way back from cycling, I wanted something milky and cool as a recovery drink, and a McD milkshake would have been perfect. The ladies on the counter and drive through looked at me as if I were an alien asking for something alien to drink.

Okay, I may be an alien but does anyone know why in such a hot country, the milkshake isn't available ?

I was told they contained gelatin but I can't see that in the ingredients on-line.

Do any of your products contain gelatine? :: McDonalds.co.uk

You can also click through to the ingredients on there as well

Have you tried going to some repair shops in Karama or Satwa -- maybe there an model close to yours with the same dimensions that you could get from them.

Curtain rail string/cord for opening and closing the curtains. My current one is literally disintegrating on me, the sun really destroys everything here. Can't seem to find just the cord in my area, they only want to sell me the whole rail with the cord attached. If you could help, kindly give me the specific shop names and location . TIA.

Cheers!
