Today is the day when they held hands and started their journey of life together as a couple - 40 years back. That's right, it's my parents' 40th wedding anniversary today
We had a small celebration at home to mark the occasion yesterday and I baked an eggless red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting topped with chocolate shavings.
I got the recipe from the HBG group on facebook. This time I took some time to try and get the frosting as smooth as possible. I think it is much better than my earlier attempts, but a long way to go still
This diwali I tried a new healthy snack - oven toasted oats mixture
The recipe had come a while back in the Hindu newspaper. Here's what we do - mix together oats (I used quaker quick cooking), turmeric powder, red chilli powder, raisins, cashews, peanuts, curry leaves and salt. Mix till all the dry ingredients are mixed well. Drizzle some oil - I used olive oil, but you could also use vegetable oil. Toast in an oven pre-heated at 125 degrees for about 45 minutes. Stir at regular intervals to avoid the mixture getting burned. Toast for longer if you think it's not cooked enough
As it has raisins it also satiates the sweet craving.. It definitely helped me
So folks that's it from me today.. Be back soon with more..
Till then.. Take care.. Be happy.. Keep stitching and baking.. Au Revoir
