Raining on a Sunday.....

Last Sunday was beautiful, it was pouring the entire day and we couldn't go out anywhere, though we did go to church, and came back soaking wet. We (Tonio, his cousins and me) decided to spend the evening baking a cake.





This is the nut cake and the strawberry cake we baked. I was actually surprised the nut cake came out well, cause I made it without a recipe. I had to give it away to people though, cause Tonio doesn't like nuts and I didn't want to eat the whole thing and put on weight. I can't wait to go back home and start baking again for Christmas.
P.S: The baking utensils I am using here were given to me by Judith Aunty for my wedding and I love them.

On an unrelated note, I read this in the paper today. "Dhoni has reassured us that he is no Samson and that locks or no locks he can still plunder runs". He does look even more dashing with his new haircut.... doesn't he?

Megha said…

I have read this somewhere...
"Nothing warms the soul like a thick, rich slice of freshly baked cake"

Looks delicious...
Antonio said…
Please don't give such false statements. I like you kavitha.
Appletini said…
Mmmmmm...I LOVE strawberyy cake ;)
The Mahathma said…
so u make cakes with nuts because he doesnt like nuts ! how sweet!
Saj, I knew you would comment on that statement... and I am actually impressed with the comment(it's actually a clean comment, I was expecting somethin else.)

Mazhalai, yeah I am on a strict diet now... there are four weddings/engagements in December/January and I want to be able to fit into my clothes.

Jude, yes i will, the next time I come there.

Charmaineeeee, I am trying to lose weight, I keep sheena in my head as role model :) Megh's all in good time, though I know what the cousins will give you after you get married "the book of life". That reminds me I have to buy a copy for saj. And the nut cake was better, the strawberry cake is the packet mix that you get... anyone can make that.

Tina, nice sentence... your mom bakes right?

Tonio, I like the cake better.

Appletini, forget the cake... how does an appletini taste?

saj, he was the one who kept pestering me to put nuts in the strawberry cake. I told him "if you keep quiet and leave me alone, I will make another cake with nuts in it"
Antonio said…
Yah i agree i asked you to put few nuts in strawberry cake.
But i didn't asked you to make the cake which was absolutely looking like a "Kadalai Mittai". Up,down,right,left,inside wherever i saw i found only nuts not cake.
But the strawberry cake was awsome girl.
Antonio said…
So Please dont say its a "Nut Cake"
Its a "Nut Case"

tonio, it is a nut cake, but the person baking it is the nut case :D

kavideyyyy u dont want to use sheena as a role model anymore. she's become fatttttt......ok, not fat, but shes put on weight...LOTS....you have to make both the cakes for me k, packet or no packet. and for saj, all the books written will not be enough for him.

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 …
