Hiatus

I am back! (Dumroll)

I have been away for so long. Guess maintaining a daily blog is not my cup of tea. But I will try. 

Places Amit and I visited together: Panama City Beach and Destin, Florida during the spring break.

Places I visited alone: Atlanta, Georgia and Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas. 

Places Amit visited during summer: home 😦 a.k.a India. But it is all right, I will visit in December. 

Movies I saw: many. 

Summer was spent cooking disasters. Also ate A Memphis Thang sandwich at Arcade Restaurant where Elvis Presley wrote songs while eating breakfast, Gibson’s Doughnuts where you can get the freshest doughnuts 24X7 from a little as 61 cents, Creme Brulatte and French Toast for breakfast at Cafe Eclectic and Arroz Con Pollo at Cafe Ole

I am working in the department over the summer- shredding ancient files, making inventories, updating the website, researching on study abroad programs, brainstorming to make the departmental website better and more up-to-date, and helping out in organizing files. The best part? I finally managed to beak the 5-year old shredder ;).

That is all that I can remember for now 😛

Fun Friday

Yes! Friday is here (does a jig). MAde my students write rhetorical argument analyses and did my own work in the office hours, for  a change :P.

Had Ramen noodle for lunch with fried vegetables and omelette while watching Disney’s Tangled. Absolutely loved this. The following song  is my favorite which asks everyone to chase dreams.

We went to Silly Goose Lounge where one of our friends celebrated her second 25th birthday party. The first was held last week on the eve of her birthday which falls on January 28th, 2012. Coincidentally, Saraswati Puja was also on the same day. Unfortunately, I could not offer my prayers to her this year :(.  The best part at Silly Goose was when the DJ played the following song. After all, playing Bhangra in Memphis for Indians is special 🙂 We enjoyed ourselves. Dinner was McDonald’s Spicy McChicken at 2am.

Sunday Dinner

Sundays are lazy and sad. There is always the tension of returning to school the next day. Amit, my husband, and I went shopping at Sam‘s for groceries. Had my first crabcake- and fallen in love 🙂 Dinner was parathas, dal and kheema matar. We used the following recipe but changed the kheema for ground turkey. It seemed as if we were at a restaurant with the delicious turkey and green peas.

We watched Up in the Air through Netflx. George Clooney was amazing. (Sigh. He is too handsome and witty)

Amit is always such a wonderful cook. Feel truly blessed!
