Runny upmas ... leave me alone

Another sunday... and another runny upma...

First things first... the last thing i want to do on a sunday morning is get into the kitchen to cook... the only exception to that is making tea!

But i felt like breakfast.. usually we lounge around drinking tea.. reading paper.. and then eating an early lunch... but today i felt like breakfast... and dispatched my husband to buy some idlis!!!! Unfortunately the place was closed... Damn!!!! And i really felt like having some nice breakfast... opened the fridge.. opened all kitchen cupboards.. nothing!! Zilch!!!

Having biscuits everyday of the week for breakfast also contributed very heavily to my need to have proper food!! And though we did have biscuits at home.. i couldnt face another day of eating them!!!

There was no bread.. one egg.. no batter.. no vermicelli.. no pasta.. no macaroni.. you get the picture... but there was a half cup of sooji!!!

Could have made parathas... but early sunday morning.. not happening!!!!

So upma it was... I confess i tried... for some reason i always get the water:sooji proportion wrong... and so my upma was runny again..as if beaten in a mixie!!!

But we ate it / drank it(!!!!!) in any case!!! (Drank is an exaggeration)

And then I had some chocolate cake ... to get over the misery of the watery upma... tried to have a slice of chocolate cake i should say....it had been lying in the fridge for a week.. and now it has become hard!! :(

I hope this is not a reflection of how my sunday is going to turn out to be.....

So how was your Sunday? :)

'A' & I generally go out for breakfast on Sunday mornings, even if it's just to Barista. It's easier that way - he doesn't have to cook...LOL :)

Sunday lunch was awesome!!!!! Went to a place called samarkand.. ate so much that we had to skip dinner... A made me chocolate milkshake!!! :)

sooji-water proportion for future reference is 1:2
it might look a little runny when i first pour it in, but just keep at the vigorous mixing and 'all izz well'!!
