Kids, food and books....

Well, finally done with the exams... its been a few fun weeks with Jacques Derrida, Edmund Husserl, Wordsworth, Mathew Arnold, and the rest of the guys.  Came to know about  phonemes, allophones, consonant clusters and what not.
Anyway, went to school the past fewdays to hangout with the kids... and when I am there, there's no where else I'd rather be.
                  

                                                    
Other than spending time in school, been spending some time in the kitchen too, tryin out a few dishes. Made Stuffed Roast Chicken and it came out really well...

                                                            

Grandma wanted to make some sweet appam, so helped her with that too.

                                                         

Received the new Potter book today and Harry Potter looks so much better as a fictional character than he does in the real life version. She (Rowling) does weave a good story.... though, it's a drag at some places.

Glad to know your exams are over.

"Stuffed Roast Chicken"
Did you intend to make it a roast, or did it just turn out that way? :P

"it came out really well"
How did the people who ate it came out?

OK, I am stopping with two jokes.. you can't blame me. If you talk about your cooling, how can I stop making fun of you!

Yummy food!Enjoy your break:-)
hey quiana, sweet appam otherwise called leaf appam is made using Jaggery. The white coating is made with Maida and the stuffing is made of Jaggery, Banana and Aval (flattened rice)along with a few cardamom pods.

Hey Mazhalai, my food might look good, but yours always looks great. I still remember some upside down cake you made.

Hey Saj, I kinda knew you would ask this question. Its the same question my brother asked. Anyway stuffed it with a mixture of Cashew nuts, dried grapes, bread pieces, onions, potato, carrot, beans, capsicum and cheese.

Oh anju, I can't watch the potter movies, the book is bad enough. I only continue reading them cause I started the series... and I do want to know why everhbody is nuts over it. And I do have that song by emerson drive.

Hey Sandhya, now that I finished reading the 7th book, I gotta say, I dislike it even more. It was a good read yes, but not a good book. It was just too much of everything... kinda like the Sivaji movie and Spiderman 3.


TDNA, I hope one of those Amway guys corner you soon.

Mommyof2, hope your kids gudiya and A are doing well. My break is over now, but it was great fun, being home again...

December 2016 and January 2017

The last few months of 2016 were crazy in so many ways. First there was the money issue (when the higher denomination notes lost their value overnight) which created a mess of economic proportions. The insane queues at banks and ATM's and all the scrambling that was happening to make sense of it all, made November quite memorable.  Around the same time, Trump came out victorious which I thought was pretty hilarious... a sort of validation that people are the same everywhere, based on who we elected here.  Anyway, after the chaos of November, December came with her own brand of drama. I heard of Cyclone Nada, but I was busy in Nagercoil then enjoying a birthday party...Even that was fun, surprising the birthday girl who did not know that I was at the airport with dad. She walks up and down and I'm hiding behind the newspaper pretending to read it, then I see Manoj by her side, and they finally come out and she is hugging my dad and after that I walk up behind her and tap her on t…

Padua and Venice 2015

So the last travel post was about Turin, after which we drove all the way to Padua and after roaming around at night, eating ice cream  we came back to Tulip Inn, our hotel in Padua. After the complimentary breakfast, we set out to visit San Antonio's shrine, the shrine where the tomb of St. Antony is located. We celebrated mass in an adjoining chapel there,  We weren't allowed to take pictures in the main shrine, but I surreptitiously managed to take this one. After walking around and praying in this huge church, we then went to the shrine shop. Among all the places we visited, the stuff I've seen at the Padua shrine shop, is really good. One of the best places to shop for souvenirs, everything is so pretty and well made. I had visited Padua in 2013 with Antonio and Nameeta, and Antonio picked up a really cool looking black ring with the Our Father inscribed on it in Latin...
He rarely wears it, so I started wearing it...
Picked up this cream and chapstick at the Padua …
