Pongal O Pongal, I used to shout as a kid when Amma used to let the brass patram full of pongal overflow just a bit so that the gas didnt get turned off but bro and I had a feeling of the festival…
I dont do it with R anymore..
One that I still havent unpacked the brass vessels which my parents gave for my wedding *Dont ask me why they gave, rolls eyes* and two, that I dont think I have the patience which my mother had
So we try and do it on the pressure cooker and shout ‘pongal o pongal’ above the din of the whistle…try it, its fun I tell ya 🙂
I got up like a good girl today to make
1. Sweet pongal
2. Salt pongal
and managed to pack everything in a dabba for RD and me to take to work…*looks proud*
The pongal o pongal reminded me of the love which we got on Saturday..
I called up Z saying R is very hungry..she said food is ready…
and yes RD just as you managed to figure out what I would write in the post….The menu
4. Vetha kuzhambu
5. Aloo curry
5. Cauliflower peas curry
6. Shrikhand (thanks to Sudhagee)
7. Chips (thanks to Sudhagee)
8. Amla achar
9. Tomato achar
10. Papad for RD who demanded it *rolls eyes*
It was Delicious and the company was such fun
Sudhagee is everything that her blog says and more…she seems to be just sitting and enjoying all the fights and bantering happening between RM and R, RD and R, L&M and RM, Z and RM (errr…why am I the common factor here)
She gave a wonderful book from Africa to R, which we have read already!!!
We talked about everything under the sun, including blogs
L&M is everything that Z talks about and much more…he and RD were discussing Modi and what not 🙂 but he is really patient to R and made her watch videos on his laptop..
He felt my mamaras need to have more groundnuts in them hmpf! I told him to come home next time to have them 🙂
He and I fought about the chips that Sudhagee had bought..but Sudhagee is a smart girl..she got two packets 😉
Z packed up some aloo curry for me to take back home which RD had straight from the fridge without even waiting for me to heat it in the evening!!
Z also gave four books to R and a DIY trinket box decoration..books have been read and the decoration is work in progress 🙂
I think we have gone beyond being blogger friends to being family friends :):) It was totally amazing for RD, R and I
R didnt even throw a tantrum!!!
I loved the whole afternoon we spent together..and oh oh! Z also made amazing ginger tea for us!! L&M needs to do it the next time we meet hehehehehe 🙂
Thank you Sudhagee and Z for the lovely lovely meet…it was super fun
and this si what I mean when I saw love overflowed 🙂
Hope you guys have a wonderful Uttrayan/sankrant/pongal 🙂
