Disney and some baking lessons

We did some mall-ing on saturday. It's the one closest to our place and also the newest one in town. As it's quite close to where we live (about 10 minutes by vehicle during off-peak hours), we decided to take our motor-bike. I think that was a very bad decision, as it took us about 45 minutes to reach the place!! We were totally dead by the time we even reached there.

Disney channel had a lot of activities planned the whole of last week at the mall starting on the 7th. We just decided to visit and see if we could take a few pictures. V was quite put off by the queue and did not want to take a picture with them. I managed to take a picture of them anyway

Disney's brings out the kid in each of us, doesn't it? There were a few stalls where the girls could be dressed up as their favorite princess. Again the build up of queue was quite long. So, just took a picture of V along one of the "walls"

By the end of it all we were famished and wanted something to eat. Again the coffee shops were full and no place to sit!! Finally managed to get a few seats in one of them. After being refreshed it was time to go grocery shopping at the new hyper market in the mall. Auchan (a hypermarket chain from Europe) has opened a branch here, and obviously we have to check that out, don't we. I was expecting a few imported brands, but was disappointed there. I am happy with the freezer section though, as I got some varieties of cheese and Khoa there.

V and I are back to our baking days, and no more cold desserts, as school has started. V wanted to bake something completely on her own. So we picked up a recipe from Rachel Allen's bake series - peanut butter and white chocolate blondies

V worked on it completely, with me only helping with checking if it was done. It came out quite well, except that I think it could have been baked just a little longer to be completely done and be firmer.

The recipe for these can be found here

I have put in the first few stitches on December cottage, but not enough to post a picture yet.

Well, that's all I have this week. Till next time.. Take care.. Be happy.. Keep stitching.. Au Revoir

Sorry your trip to the mall wasn't as expected. V was/is adorable, though. I love her expressions :)

P.S. Thanks for the recipe. I'm thinking about making it for treat day this month.
