And its been raining for the past 3 to 4 days – and WOW, what an awesome climate !!!! 🙂 This kind of climate makes you a bit lethargic and the yearning to roll on the bed all the time, is more. But, the girls try their level best to keep me on my toes – actually I am grateful for that – otherwise, life will be boring. 😆
Coming to boredom… today has been a boring day – in terms of the eventfulness of the day !!!! And so I just made one simple rasam, dhal and a kacha kela fry. I was actually proud of myself that I had been so smart in finishing the day’s cooking so fast.
Well, the happiness was short lived, when I heard “Hey, its been many days since Mom baked, na ???” I had baked a cake only last week and it got over in just 2 days. The baking happens every week, without which the week is tagged NO COOKING WEEK. Just imagine, all the cooking I do is not accounted for. Only the cakes and cookies are all that matters.
So, I called out to my girls “Hey !! Anyone interested in helping me bake a cake ???” And finally, the elder one offered to help. And there, we had a lovely discussion – which cake to bake – vanilla, banana, chocolate – and finally decided on a Nigella Lawson’s Chocolate Cake !!!! My fav tooo !!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂
So, here’s how the batter looked, before it went into the oven.
Now, the awesome blossom, CHOCOLATE CAKE, after baking !!!! 🙂 😆
Now, isnt the cake looking AWESOME !!! At last, I’ve hit on the boredom with BAKING !!!
Just an after thought !!!!
I am also celebrating Hitch’s entry into the second round, by dedicating this WONDERFUL CHOCOLATE CAKE to HITCHWRITER !!!! So, Hitch, here you go, have a piece and enjoy. You’ll get the dream job of yours !!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 Friends, come on, dig in !!!!
