Knotty Tidbits: 5

Title: Aaloo Jeera

The other day when we ate out at an Indian Restaurant, V loved the Aaloo Jeera that he had ordered. That night itself he googled for the recipe and decided to make it the very next day. But he could not, as there were no aaloos (potatoes) at home. He did not forget to get potatoes during his trip to the grocery store. He selected the perfect little potatoes all the while keeping Aaloo Jeera in mind!

Finally yesterday, he donned the apron and got his hands into Aaloo and Jeera to make Aaloo Jeera! It is one of those rare occasions that I get to taste his food. Dint want to miss it! It came out very spicy, yet we both loved it! Hope I get to see more instances of V as Mr. Chef!

My new machine!!!

Whole of June has been a vacation from my blog! :)

A lot to be said about my past month... If I say that there was no time for blogging then I would be lying... If I say that I did not find any moment worthy enough to be blogged then I would be lying too! :) 

All I can say is: I was getting adjusted to the new life... Physically being so far away from my family... but that got compensated by being with this one single soul who has become my life now. How things change... priorities change... to ensure that the special someone is given the best of everything! My life seems to revolve around this one person as though he is the sun and I am the earth doing rounds around him! :)

Since last Friday, my focus has been shifted to one other thing. My new sewing machine!!! This is the first time I am seeing a machine with a digital display to select the stitch. It has 50 stitches. And you know what's the best thing about it?? The way it stitches the buttonholes. Everything in a single-step... All I have to do is to select the stitch and press the foot controller. I simply love it!

V gifted me this machine and I told myself that the first thing that I would stitch out of this machine would be for V. I have stitched him an apron and he seems to like it...!

I do not have many colors of threads for sewing. I am yet to buy them and I also need a good pair of scissors. Got to buy them soon! :)

So, I have got one more topic to blog about and  bore you (as though I haven't bored you enough!! :D) You may see more of my sewing and crafting projects on my blog soon! :)
