It’s been over 2 weeks since my last post! I’ve missed cooking! I’ve missed writing my blog! I’ve missed connecting with you, my friends in the blog world!
A lot was going on, both at work & home that didn’t leave me much time to cook blog-worthy dishes… if I made notes & jotted down recipes, I couldn’t take great pictures, & if I did take some, there didn’t seem to be any time to write…
I did land up baking these for my last batch of theatre workshop kids… They were a hit… both the kids & the cookies 🙂
Well it has been a roller-coaster ride these 2 weeks… physically & emotionally.
I turned a year older on May 24 🙂
Celebrations continued on Saturday with aimless driving around the City & a bad film… a really bad film, with the husband & a Mexican dinner at Sanchos with old friends… a fun, memorable birthday weekend!
3 days later I was in hospital for 2-3 days 😦
And this is the view I’m limited to since, for another 10 days!
It’s nothing serious. I just need to rest, relax & generally look after myself. And like I’ve said before, the best place to head to when you need some serious TLC & pampering is to your Ma & Dad’s! So here I am for the next 10 days or so.
The only bummer is that I absolutely have to lay down flat in bed all day!!! And that’s just driving me nuts! While I’m all for being lazy in summer & chilling all day… this is just… arghhhhh!! Forget about going out… I’m not even allowed to cook!
So here’s what I’m going to do… a project with my Ma that we have been procrastinating over a long while. We are going to document her traditional family recipes… our favourite comfort dishes, festival specials, recipes passed down by my grandmothers. Most of the recipes are in her head, some in tattered notebooks & scraps of paper & my grandmothers’ recipes in our native Gujarati script, which I’m embarrassed to admit I can’t read all that well! We’re going to put them all together & compile our very own Family Recipe Book!
I’ve also been catching up on my blog-reading & living vicariously through all the Kitchen Adventures of my fellow bloggers… And I have compiled a wishlist of all the recipes I wish I could make right now!
Here they are… And when I do make them, I will keep you posted 🙂
