My parents, who stayed with us for 6 months, taking care of me when I was advised bedrest, then with the delivery and help with little M, left back for India on Tuesday. We all miss them a lot. Not just because of their help but just their presence which made life feel richer. My sister Dolly, in Bangalore is probably saying gleefully "Your loss, my gain! Ha ha!" Grr! But on the brighter side, my in-laws are here with us for sometime and that makes it more bearable. I'm sure I'll feel the same way when it's time for my in-laws to leave.
I'm continuing to work part time, which works beautifully for us all. I am supposed to start full time again from Jan 1 but am hoping for a few weeks' extension. We'll see how that goes. Fingers crossed!
Here are some yummy stuff from other blogs.
I made this egg curry when we had some friends over for dinner. It turned out so well! The eggs were gone in no time and soon I was left with just the gravy! I should have boiled some more eggs and kept them aside for adding later. Lesson learnt! Here is the original recipe. Thank you, Nandita, for sharing this awesome curry recipe!
The tomato kolambu was delicious! Here is the recipe from the very enthusiastic Supriya. I cut down the number of green and red chillies. My mixer was giving me trouble so the grinding part did not come out well. The end result was a slightly runny gravy but the taste more than made up for the texture. Thank you, Sup! I hope you are having loads of fun in India!
Now that Nitin's mom is here, I hope to post some Konkani recipes soon!
Merry Christmas! Happy Hanukkah! Happy Holidays, All!
