Over the Weekend – Blogathon Post 6

I turned out to be some sort of a crazy human being who managed to

1. Get a document from someone by travelling like 25 kilometres
2. Work full day in office on Saturday
3. get a gazillion quantity of coriander leaves because they were really cheap only to come home to realise that RD did exactly the same because they were really cheap (one set of cheapo couple we are!)
4. Make pudina thogail (not very great)
5. Make tomato achar (very nice!)
6. Make undhiyu with fulkas on Sunday morning (very good- Thats my dish of the week, pictoral recipe coming up soon!)
7. Clean up an entire cupboard which hadnt been touched since April 2011 (How do I know? Because the newspapers which I keep to cover the shelf were dtd April 2011 *Rolls eyes*)
7. Wrote three book reviews for IMC (will be cross posted here!)
8. Watched the first 3 minutes of Dhoom 3 and then went back to my book
9. Finished the Queen of Babble in the Big City in 2 days!
10. Ran with R with her cycle for 10 rounds of the building
11. Ate yummy kothimbir vadi (had to use that gazillion quantity of coriander no?)
12. Made the 5 minute besan ladoo in the microwave which turned out yummy but over gheey..next time need to reduce the ghee quantity. It turned out pretty shapeless but yumm..as RD says, anyways it will be shapeless once we bite into it eh? Now you know why I am still with this man after 7 years of marriage πŸ˜‰
How was your weekend?

  2. Sounds like a pretty full-on weekend! You managed to get a lot of stuff done in one day…given that you worked Saturday! My weekend? Cleaned the house…and I mean really cleaned…cleared out my closet and got rid off 5 bags of clothes among other things. Also watched the cricket yesterday…and of course, blogged. πŸ™‚

    Oh My! Did you manage to get any sleep at all or were you just swishing around doing all the work? That is some crazy weekend schedule.

    I just visited some snakes & wild animals and a then went straight to a beautiful temple to end the day and just fought with a couple of rickshawalas. That’s all. And before I knew it was Monday morning again!

  19. Rachna says:

    Over the weekend, I cooked fantastic stuff with avarekai which is in season now. So it was avarekai sambhar and a lovely gravy with coconut milk. I also watched an old movie “Guzaarish” and quite enjoyed it. Did a lot of reading — varied stuff! And yes, my first time nimbu pickle came out perfect which really made me happy :).

  20. Excuse me! Why do u even mention that microwave besan laddoo stuff!! Am suffering from compulsory-dessert-disorder for the past few months(i blame it on post-partum) and u added ghee to the fire. 😦 I hope u also make 5-min paalkova, 2 min mug cake etc *evil laugh*
    P.S : Just say something nice about this comment but don’t talk about sweets

    • R's Mom says:

      Awwww hugs hugs hugs….I tried making idlis in the microwave yesterday and they turned rock hard..so made them the traditional way in the cooker today…

      PS – Didnt write about sweets okay?
