First Days At Playschool

The last couple of weeks have been so so chaotic. #:-S

D has finally started with his playschool, but my problems only seem to be beginning. Yes, I need all the luck that was bestowed upon me in the last post :-S

The first week they had a mother-toddler session to familiarise the child with the school and teachers, mommy in tow. And guess what? The initial two days D just wouldn't let go of me! He insisted that I only carry him while all the activities were going on. In fact he was the only kid who was crying! :-O

Just Randomness

Hello People,

Anyone still around?

I know I know I have been away from the blogging (and virtual) world since ages....but now I am back!
For better or worse? Never mind :)

I have been super unorganised busy in the real world, but lets not even get into those details :).

In other news, D's language and vocabulary skills have been improving by leaps and bounds. He talks nineteen to a dozen, repeating every single thing that is spoken around him. This has prompted our friends to nickname him The Talking Tom!!!

Recipe - Marzipan Easter Eggs

As far as my experiments in the kitchen are concerned, I usually stick to quick and easy to make dishes. I have made marzipans for Christmas in the past and on a last minute whim, decided to apply the same recipe to make Marzipan Easter Eggs. In my previous post, many of you commented on how yummy the Easter Eggs looked. So here I am sharing this recipe for all of you to make and enjoy.

Recipe - Mysore Pak

I don't really have a sweet tooth and neither does D nor DD. However, one of the rare sweets that we do relish is Mysore Pak. D and I enjoy all the versions, be it soft and smooth or crisp and crumbly. DD only prefers the latter. The former, he feels deserves the tag of halwa and not Mysore Pak 8-|

This has been my go to sweet for special occassions. Firstly, because it is super easy to make and secondly, because we all love it so much.

A Letter To My Baby

Warning: Super long post ahead. Read at your on risk!!!

Dear D,

Congratulations Baby, you have achieved yet another milestone in your eventful life. You turned 2 on 31st March 2014 and what a journey it has been thus far....

I still remember the day, seven weeks before you were born, a sonography revealed that you had the cord around your neck. I was in despair. Until then, I had heard about quite a few instances of the cord around the baby's neck and none of them reassuring. For months, I was told to sleep, get up and turn in a particular position to avoid this problem, none of them endorsed by doctors of course. And here I was, with this terrible report in my hand. The gynaec though was totally nonchalant.

Lunching Out With D

I know I have been MIA for a loooonnnngggg time now. Been super busy with a ton of things. D's birthday is coming up soon, so loads of preparations on that front too :)

Recently we went out for a family lunch to Pop Tate's. I love the cool,chilled out ambience of the place. We feasted on tacos, chicken lollipops (the best I have had in my life so far), fish and chips and kiwi and litchi juices to wash it all down *burrrp*. Needless to say D was on top of the world, what with all the chicken and fish to pig out on :)
