On New Receipes and TV Shows

Last week I got these dinner rolls from Costco(Pav) as referred in India. Friday evening , I made hot yummy Vada-Pav , assembled the vada, chutneys with the pav and had them with evening tea. Night went to casino and gambled away winning a little profit.

Saturday just stayed at homeand did nothing major, night again went to casino and lost some money.

Sunday I made pav bhaji after a really long time. In the Mystic Lake caino they were hosting the Family Fued Show Live(sort of the same concept as that comes on TV)
Since we got free tickets we eagerly went there. Whole winter I watched this show on TV and was excited to get there. the show started at 7 and lasted for 2 hrs, even though we did not win any prizes we had a really great time.

On Birthdays and Winning Matches

Saturday was a very hectic day for me. G left early in the morning for his VB match.
Me and R woke up at 8:30, I washed the dishes and made pancakes for breakfast. Once we were done R went for potty and bath and in the meantime I made some gavar ka sabji.
We both got ready to go t HomeDepot. Since it is the 1st Saturday they have a Kids Workshop. Me along with my friend and her 2 kids drove to Home Depot and had a great tiem making a bird feeder, we also got to see some of their exotic bird collection that they had got.
After returning R went to play with the kids where as I went ofr some walking.
At 1:30 I went to get him but ended up eating lunch at friend's place and R eat his lunch at another friend's place.
We reached home by 2:15 and got ready to go for the birthday party. Since it was great weather and the party was nearby we walked. R had a gr8 time running around with his friends but I got quite bored as it was his daycare friend's birthday and I did not know anyone.

After returning me and other friends decided to go to watch the match as our guys had reached the finals. We drope 25 mins over there only to be informed that the finals will be held near to our place as the Community center they had booked was closing.
We returned to the Champions Hall by 7:30. Finals started after 8, oh! it was a thrilling match. We won the  1st set, the other team won the 2nd set and it was a close finish in the 3rd set which our team WON.

Hi-fi and Congratulations all over!
We attended the award ceremony and then all of us went for dinner at Green mill. By the time we reached home and went to bed it was 11:30

All in all a great day

Macy's Flower Show and Circus

This Sunday the weather was predicted to be in the 60's( a perfect day for getting out)
G left in the morning for his VolleyBall practise. Me and R woke up and had a breakfast of bread/jam tea/milk and then R had his bath. I did some long time pending waxing and then took bath and got ready to go out.
We went for lunch at Bombay Bistro--had medu vada/dosa/chutney/sambhar/pani-puri/chicken tandoori/chicken biryani/goat biryani/chicken tikka masala/chicken butter masala/gulab jamun/payasam

We then went for the Macy's Flower Show. It was beautiful to see such pretty flowers, Red, Yellow, orange tulips everywhere, concentric pretty colored roses and some very colorful flowers. From there we went to the Osman Shrine Circus.
We reached at 5pm and they had set up the indoor stage for Elephant rides/pony rides/picture sessions(all with purchase of tickets). We decided to skip those and took our seats. The show began at 5:30pm.

There were lions/tigers show, elephant shows, gymnastic, trapeze artists, motor bikes stunts, poodle show, clowns, hoopla girls and many more.

The show was done by 8pm and we reached home at 8:30pm. We decided to order veggie hoagie from Davanni's for dinner.

I was too stuffed and decided to go for walk in the party hall. Since it is night time no one will be there. Baby R decided to join me. I told him he will get bored as there wont be any kids but he still decided to come.
He asked me how many rounds I wanted to make. Initially I thought of saying 10 then mentioned 15 thinking he will trouble me.
but he walked all the 15 rounds with me counting each round and never once complained.
I was sleepy with the long day but he was quite energetic and after 15 rounds we went back home to cuddle and sleep.
