Easy-breezy Pav Bhaji

My horoscope for today read “Do something on a regular basis, write a journal, work out etc etc” so I remembered my long forgotten blog.

I am feeling lazy to cook plus we have a dinner invite today, a colleague of mine had a baby girl and today is her naming ceremony and I am looking forward to it. As usual AD will not join us he does not join me for any W parties and we have had numerous arguments that I go to all the C parties. Anyway I love them so no point arguing as it is one of facts that we have to live with the fact that we work for competitors.

I decided to cook easy-breezy yummy Pav bhaji and yippee it turned out well, AD loved it and isn’t always when he finds no faults with my cooking :) . SD has not been keeping well he has not been eating at all and loosing a lot of weight. All his blood test results have been normal but still his appetite has not been good. Doc has prescribed some medicines for 7 days to see if he starts to eat else we will have to travel to Little Rock to see a stomach pediatrician.
