I am back from Chennai after a busy busy wedding week. Though I had two posts ready with me, I didn't bothered about my blog and was not stone hearted to sit and spend time in my blog while the whole house was filled with guests. It was fun and I enjoyed that life too. Lots of cooking, lots of serving than cooking Tongue. No time to sit, no place to sleep, still enjoyed the time.How? It gave me time to sit in mottamadi, watch the trains passing by, including the new double decker express to Bangalore. Though I wanted to travel to Bangalore in that train to my brother’s house, it dint happened due to lack of time, at least I was lucky enough to watch it many times (from our house window, I can see the trains passing by coz, the track is just opposite to our house Batting Eyelashes).  I could do only half the things as I planned to do in Chennai, missed few thingsWorried, still its fine, where everything gonna go?
      As usual, when I kept shopping and mom, MIL gathered things for me to carry, packing things become very difficult and left lot of things behind. Consoled MIL to bring those things when she visit here later. Yes, now that I visited Chennai, now I am eager for them to come here to SGBlushing . Still, feeling bad for few things which I wanted to do, but could not – click the passing by trains, karumbu juice kadai near by , explore the streets of Anna nagar, though I watched the shops from the car few times going here and there. Missed buying top ramen noodles, 5-star, coffee bite which I cant get hereStriaght Face. Also I wanted to go to the beaches in the evening, but could go only after it went dark! This happens every time, every single time!! Ok fine! Lets me see the brighter sideCool. I will do everything next time. Its mainly because of the travel I dint had time to do many things. Pune trip was really good, Pune climate was just like B’lore climate, pure bliss! Now its time to sit and edit all the pictures! Big Grin

And I am really sorry for those un answered mails, comments, queries…I know I dint respond to many of you. Will try my best to reply those soon. Thank you for you understanding and supportin my absence Big Hug. This pepper kuzhambu recipe/ milagu kuzhambu recipe is similar to my brinjal pepper kuzhambu. No onion no garlic version. Eat it with hot rice and ghee, its great! Simple recipe to try.
