    EVENT: BLOGGING MARATHON #89 THEME: MAKE ONE TYPE OF INDIAN SWEET Next week I’m traveling to Canada to visit my son. Excited? Yes. Have I started packing? No. I know last minute I’m going to be running around like a headless chicken. I need to put away the spices, grains, flours, lentils everything in the fridge. I hate this part. The weather here is so humid that food gets spoilt within a month in not stored in the fridge. I need to still make a few goodies to take for him. I need to pack. I was joking with hubby dear that he might as well convert one of the bedrooms into a cold storage. Oh well, let me just relax for a bit and…

    EVENTS: BLOGGING MARATHON #89 WEEK 2 DAY 2 FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEMES: MAKE ONE TYPE OF INDIAN SWEET / EID SPECIAL Lets talk about the the Blogging Marathon theme first. I chose make one type of Indian Sweet because I wanted to make different types of kheer and also showcase that its possible to make both sugarless and with sugar without any hassles. I’d come across so many carrot kheer recipes and always wondered what it would taste like. So voila there I made it and it tastes awesome. Its actually a great dessert, easy to make and the charming thing about this recipe is that besides being so colorfully tempting, one can control the amount of sugar that goes into it. Since carrots are slightly sweet,…

    EVENT: BLOGGING MARATHON #89 WEEK 2 DAY 1 THEME: MAKE ONE TYPE OF INDIAN SWEET For the #89th BM theme I chose make one type of Indian Sweet as I specifically had one famous and easy Indian sweet in mind, and that is kheer. I want to show that any type of kheer can be made into a sugar less option too. I personally don’t like the taste of any artificial sweeteners. However hubby loves his stevia. When I made the kheer, I added sugar at the last stage. I removed a portion for hubby, added stevia and to mine I added sugar. Also one is able to control the amount of sugar according to their taste. Don’t want to add sugar then add palm…

    EVENT:BLOGGING MARATHON #88 THEME: KID’S DELIGHT – HEALTHY DRINKS – WEEK 3 DAY 1 For the next 3 days I will be preparing healthy drinks for kids. Yes, I know I don’t have kids at home, mine are all grown up. Usually its this fact that prevents me from taking part in the monthly Kid’s Delight theme that is organized by Srivalli. However, for the month of May, I participated in this event. The good part is that fellow members who host this event can decide on the theme. I will be hosting the kid’s delight healthy drinks from 16th May to 16th June. There is a specific reason why I chose healthy drinks. When we have so many options of serving healthy home made…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON – APRIL 2018 #87TH BLOGGING MARATHON THEME – EXPLORE THE FLAVORS – INTERNATIONAL BREAKFAST DAY 6 “Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince and Dine like a Pauper” Do you ever get the feeling that in spite of all the planning, organizing and doing tasks on time, some things are never in your control? I’ve had some of the recipes for this Mega Blogging Marathon ready, some are not. The ones that are ready, are in the draft but need to be done up properly before posting. Some are still in my ever so messy book where I jot the recipe down, jot down the measurements and the amendments. Last night finally after all the house chores and other jobs got…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON – APRIL 2018 #87TH BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: EXPLORE THE FLAVORS – INTERNATIONAL BREAKFAST DAY 3 “Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince and Dine like a Pauper” We are once again going through water cuts…you read right not power cuts but water cuts. We’re in the 21st Century and basic amenities like water, power and garbage collection are missing in the second largest city of Kenya. Its a shame! We live in what’s suppose to be the upmarket area on the island and we’ve not had piped water ever since my hubby’s family opted to live in this area. We heavily depend on the borehole which is not enough for 240 apartments. Now I have to get up early and race…

    Enkare Nyrobi – Cool Water      I’ve been spending some time in the capital city of Kenya, Nairobi. Nairobi gets its name from the Masai phrase Enkare Nyrobi which means cool water. It perhaps was names so as its got the Nairobi River flowing through it. However, the river is no longer what I remembered it as. Its polluted and the flow has reduced due modernization.  I was born and brought up in Nairobi but have been living in Mombasa for the past 35 years. Usually when hubby and I are traveling abroad, we do not bother to come into the city and prefer to catch our connecting flight. The traffic in Nairobi is a nightmare in spite of all the new highways and numerous…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON -SEPT 2017   #80TH BLOGGING MARATHON   THEME: PROTEIN RICH DISHES DAY:19    When I was planning what protein rich dishes I was going to make, peanut butter was on top of the list. I was planning to make a peanut butter and banana sandwich, but then I came across this delicious pudding recipe. It was also full of chia seeds so one recipe took care of both the protein rich ingredients peanut butter and chia seeds. What I really like about this pudding is that one can even have on days that you are fasting. I know many people fast all 9 days of Navratri without consuming grains, pulses, salt and vegetables. So here’s just the right kind of pudding to energize you and make…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON -SEPT 2017 #80TH BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: PROTEIN RICH DISHES DAY:11 I have always envied bloggers who get all the ingredients they need for their recipes. However my hubby thinks otherwise. He claims that if I did have access to all the ingredients I’d be living in my kitchen,he would put on weight and my neighbors would not prepare food in their homes! Well, that’s not entirely true. There are days when I don’t even want to lift a spoon, forget about preparing anything. At that time making a simple khichdi too becomes a humungous task. Since Srivalli announced the Mega Blogging Marathon theme, Veena a co member and blogger asked me why I wasn’t taking part. I told her that I definitely will not manage…

    Happy Valentine’s Day To love someone deeply gives you strength and to be loved deeply by someone gives you courage.     This is so true.Its my hubby’s love that gives me courage to do want I want. Loving him gives me the strength to overcome any difficulties. My hubby has never been the flowers, chocolates, teddy bear type of person. Yesterday after watching Raees we went for lunch to a famous Italian restaurant. We were sitting next to the very tempting choices of gelato but he didn’t ask me if I wanted some as Valentine’s Day is around the corner. In all our 34 years of marriage I received only one valentine’s card from him and that too when he was away doing his dermatology…
