Reasoning ....

Its been a while since I last posted … reasons …

· Major cleaning / organization sessions took place in our house past 2 weeks. We got rid of a lot of stuff, donated some and re-arranged others. Spent quite some amount on the storage boxes … but end result is satisfying. Our closets look so organized that even BP is making a conscious effort to maintain it.
· Shopping: Went with the intent of buying some storage boxes … but couldn’t control the year end deals and ended up buying quite some. Afterall I was getting rid of a lot of clothes, so needed some new !! Bought a super cool griddle … dosa making is a piece of cake now … even so because BP loves spreading the batter and making it on the new griddle. The exciting part is we can make multiple dosas at the same time with little or no oil and they turn out perfect, crispy and large enough !! Why didn’t I buy this one earlier???
· We all had a cold / cough suffering days … so were not in the best of health.
· Cantaloupe was home (winter break) and kept us on our toes almost 15 – 16 hrs a day! BP and I were home too … so it was fun family time.
· Sister is back from India … which means I snacking on all the goodies almost anytime in the day. The weather has been on the cold side, so those Chakkalis and Kodbales and Chuda taste extra special. (even more so since they are home made). Tasted “Dharwad Peda” after almost 4 yrs and it was divine!!
· Scripting for a play to be performed in our local community club. Planning has been slow for the event … hopefully things will fall in place quickly. Feb 2nd is fast approaching.

Now there you go … I have all valid reasons for not blogging!!!

I bought the griddle for a good deal at Sears. I tried looking for the one we bought, but couldn't find it :(

Just read this and had to comment on dharwad pedas...I love those. Last week dad had gone to Bangalore and bought a box of them, but he got it mixed up with a box of sweets at my cousin's house, so we ended up with stuff like kaju barfi, which I hate...
