life, lime and lemons

if life gives you lemons, make lemonade, find someone whose life gives you vodka, and have a party

I watched tonnes and tonnes of tv…mindless random day-time tv….the criminal-waste-of-time kind of tv…and it felt so darn GOOD 🙂 I cant remember the last time I cuddled up on the couch with the morning not yet begun and acted like such a couch-potato. Probably in college.

And of course I cooked some…

Greek style mini-lamb burgers

The original recipe asked for pita pockets but I couldnt get hold of them in time hence the improvisation.

I am now trying my hand at breads. Tried some cinnamon rolls,  uuughh…lets just say they were noooooo good.

Oh well. You win some, you lose some BAD 😦

Tagged and Bagged! January 20, 2012

Thank you Nancy! You tagged me and got me to get back to my poor neglected blog.

Oh and she awarded me too! *wooo hoooo* At the risk of being repetitive, never thought of myself as a versatile blogger…but hey, everyday you learn something new about yourself huh! 😉

So lets see if I can meet the other criteria of this tag….

1. I recently took a cake decoration workshop. It was fun and sooooo tiring! Who knew the fancy stuff could be so exhausting. I laboured over the cake for 2 days and decided to put it to good use. Gifted it to The Boy for our 2nd wedding anniversary.

Outcome of the workshop!

2. Yeah…you got that right. Two years!!!!! The number seems over-whelming. Most of the time it still feels new…you know that warm fuzzy feeling in your stomach during the initial phase when you are together! Clearly, I am still besotted with The Boy 🙂

For those who are rolling their eyes now ‘coz you have passed the 10 or 20 years mark dont be looking down my mere 2 years! Be nice and let me gush over my experience (and achievement??? 😉 )

3. I have never done a tag before. Really….you can check my blog. As far as I recall in all these years, I would always beg off tags. So certain people should consider themselves verrrrrrry lucky right about now 😛

4. I love organising parties. There was a time when K and me joked about becoming party planners. Both of us love excel-sheets and lists and being all super-creative yet efficient and organised. So keeping with that spirit, I threw my in-laws a small dinner party for their wedding anniversary. I attempted yet another cake which didnt turn out so well …..practice! practice! practice!

It tasted divine though...if I may say so myself!

5. I have promised myself to write more often on the blog and this time, I will stick to it. Does that qualify as a random thing about myself?

6. Recently, I became an aunt (for the umpteenth time) to twin girls! Hats off to my sister-in-law and brother ….how they manage the twins and a 2 year old daughter is beyond me. All I do for my part is skype with them every week so the kiddies remember my name and face.

7. I am a professional social worker….well, atleast by my qualification. What I do now would probably not qualify as social work but I believe there is a social and moral angle to it. Someday, I will tell you all more 🙂

So lets award people….I may not blog regularly but I do follow some strictly.

Lauren, my fav food-blog!

K (dont lead anything back to me!)

Here is what you guys have to do…

1 Put up the versatile blogger pic.  2 Tag people and inform them.  3 Share seven random things about yourself.  4. Dont forget to thank the person who tagged you 🙂

 

My obsession is crossing a line! June 9, 2011

I have always been obsessed with food….but I think it’s now crossing a line…the dangerous line! I wonder if there is something seriously wrong with me craving food all the time. I have always loved food but now I am always hungry.

AND STOP RIGHT THERE! I know what you may be thinking….and I can absolutely assure it’s not THAT. **rolls eyes** Does everyone have a one-track mind when it comes to a girl saying she is craving food????

So I have been on a baking spree to satiate my cravings….there was a German Apple Cake recipe I found in the blogworld. Unfortunately I cannot remember where and it kinda got over tooooo fast for me to share a pic. However, I did take a pic of what I like to call the Mocha Banana Bread, a recipe adapted from here.

Beautiful sight isnt it?

The Boy and I couldn’t resist the temptation and dug into it as soon as it came out of the oven. Oh the joy of baking! 🙂
