Warning! Photos overload........lolz.
The week has gone ..the work at office was very hectic and so i was looking forward to my weekend badly...but still lil do i get the me time ..
Few of my lovely week pics..
my kiddo annual day function at his day care center...his best buddies for ever..he's been with them since one and half year old and now he's going to be six...(yes, my kids in day care since one year, it was a very sad decision but i had no choice being working mom and no one at home to take care of....but looking back i feel that was a right move...)
My two babies...the lil one's is my sis's son and he is so naughty..isn't it obvious from the pic..he he ..
was craving some potato and veggies ....so had an quick idea to roast them.. lil olive oil, paprika, pepper powder, oregano and salt is all you need to make this yummy side dish. Mix them all together and microwave (540W) and grill at combi mode ...ready in 15 mins..
dish ready just out of oven...eat it as such or with hot chapati's..i prefer as such...
went to the amusement park set up near a local garden...it was a fun time sitting in the rides although at the end, hubby and me were a bit dizzy but out kid was insisting to have more, but we were not in our right senses to have more..so had to refuse him...(we could not let him alone, he is too young and too mischievous to rely on him to be quiet on the rides),,lolz..
view taken from giant wheel..god knows how i managed to get these pics clicked as i was screaming the most while riding..
see..not a tiny bity of fear while sitting on the rides..his mamma was screaming on top of her voice...
tried a new marinade for the chicken this time, not the usual tandoori one, was bored of the same tandoori marinade..the chicken turned out delicious . This marinade is prepared by grinding coriander leaf, paprika, barbeque sauce (i had some left over so used it), salt, vinegar, pepper powder, cinnamon and lil oil. Marinate overnight and then use the microwave (540W) and grill combi for 15 mins turning in between once. It's so yummy and gets ready so fast...
Rice pulav to go with the chicken...and this is the best way i can get my kid have his veggies..i add them all in the pulav (i used french beans, carrot, cabbage, potato and soya granules this time). this is also an amazing quick dish, all goes in the cooker with water, salt, coriander powder, biryani masala and just one whistle is all you need..
went to the local exhibition set up near by....i like these bangles to go with my casuals and jeans...paid 100 Rs / 2 $ (i tried to negotiate but the sales man was not budging..since i liked it..i could not just pass it. i know its bit pricey for this but i had been looking for this design and could not get what i wanted anywhere else...i like the mix of the metals used...so just had to buy..
another buy on a whim...it was on a sale for rs 50 only for both...so took it..
the neck piece is from shoppers stop. had visited the mall this week and they were running a sale..i picked it up assuming this would be also for some percent off too..but during checkout, the sales person said this one was a fresh collection and so no offer..was reluctant to pass of and finally bought for rs 299 / approx 5 $
This is what me and my hubby won during the kids annual day fest...there was some entertainment programme for the parents too. few couples were called and asked to do a task and we were the winners...yippee.....
finally, i got some time to clean my masala storage rack...i love this in my kitchen as it has all the masalas together what i require on daily basis but it was getting a bit dirty by frequent use...and as usual was putting off cleaning it...no time for working mothers to get in to all these u see..but finally i managed...its looking new now..
got some new curtains for my living room.... had been long wanting to have these soft light curtains but they were a bit pricey..Guess what, the Home Stop was running a sale of 50% off, and these were up for half the price...had to grab it...(sale price: 700 Rs each, MRP: 1400 Rs each)...
ain't they lovely..in the morning, the rays come straight through them..and its so bright in the living room..so happy they were on sale..
come visit me next week with new pics of the week....
hope you had a great weekend too... :)
