TUSAL and Gaming!!

Yes, that's precisely what has been keeping me away. Thanks to Fruit Ninja, Tetris, Subway surf and my new jigsaw apps, I have hardly made any progress with my stitching.

Let me show you my orts for the months first
All orts are from december cottage, just a few from seashells

We just removed the training wheels from V's cycle and she just can't stay away from it.

I tried this new recipe - corn pudding.
I found this recipe in one of the women's magazines, while I was enjoying a mint pedicure at the parlor. Here it is:
Boil a cup of corn in a cup of milk till it is well cooked and soft. Cool this and grind to a smooth paste. Pass this through a sieve. I skipped this step (out of sheer laziness). Pour this corn mixture into a heavy bottomed vessel, add more milk, 1 cup sugar, 1tbsp butter and cook till the mixture is thick. It should look like custard. The original recipe called for cinnamon for additional flavor, but I used cardamom and saffron. This gave a real nice touch. Chill and serve.
This is a very quick and easy dessert.

As the months fly, it's time to display the "finished" September cottage.
Just 3 more to "finish" and they will be done for good. I have gathered all the materials required to finish them all and hope to get that done by this week.

Though I have not made much progress with seashells, here's where I am with it.
I have not been baking the last few weeks at all.

I promise to make more progress and put down my games from now. Till my next post, hopefully with more progress.. Take care.. Be Happy.. Keep stitching.. Au Revoir

Woo Hoo! Congrats to V on riding with no training wheels. (I still remember my first bicycle - My Dad threatened to give it to my younger brother because I was afraid to get on it, lol)

September is adorable!
