Bake for boredom !!!

With my girls having holidays, my house is a big adda for activities.  We are all cooking various things, always eating (wondering how many kilos I’ve gained 🙄 ), watching our favourite shows, viewing the same stupid romantic movies so many times and watching Khatron Ki Khiladi with a lots of awww, yuk, super stunt, Come on Rosa – U can do it (yeah, Rosa was a hot fav at home, sad that she is out of the game)…. the list is endless with two girls who are taller than me and have a look like – Mom, we know better !!!! 😆 Actually, I love that look on my girls’ faces.


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 !!!!

    Ummu, Send some this way me friend. Nigella Lawson’s cake is a killer.

    Kids at home because of Puja holidays. So having a blast! 🙂


  10. Solilo says:

    By Rosa you mean Rosa Catallino? Saif Ali Khan’s ex. ? Ha..ha..ha.. apparently Akshay was sad to see her leave the show.


    • Even ME was sad to see Rosa go out of the game !!!!

      If anybody was strong and brave, it was she !!! Kudos to her !!! 🙂


      • Solilo says:

        Was she? I have no clue about the show. I thought your husband was sad to see her go for obvious reason. Ahem… 😉

        ME : My hubby watches all the stunts, during the repeat on Sundays – all the 4 days stunts together. But he doesnt know a name or two of the babes in the show. Rosa or Jesse or Anushka – doesnt make any difference to him 😆

        Today was the finals -Its over now.


      • Solilo says:

        They don’t care for the names, Ummu as long as they get to see what they want. 😉

        Now I demand a reality show with all hot guys.


      • Solilo says:

        John Abraham tops my list. Then Rahul Khanna, Marc Robinson, Akshaye Khanna, Diwakar Pundir…heck! bring all male models.


      • I second it !!!! Yeah, a reality show with all hot guys – WOW, my imagination is running like a wild horse !!!! 😆

        John shld have only one outfit in the whole show – and you know which one it is….hehehehe 😆
