I celebrated my first wedding anniversary a few days ago..... The first thought I had in the morning was; this time last year, I was, at 6:00 am, having a 'last' look at my 'maika'.. oh no! no waterworks for me please!
Since then one full year has gone by, in the wink of an eye! Seems like yesterday that my mother was at her wits end trying to convince me to choose a guy to get married to.. all those endless lectures... my frivolous retorts...pooh poohing the proposals....
And then one fine day...it happened! The wild, carefree (and careless), don't-care colt was tamed.....
Today when I look back, I feel very happy about my decision, very content with the life I lead (but that in no way assuages my desire to shop- my one undying passion!) and proud of my husband and thankful to God for giving me such a loving, caring family. (Touch wood!)
Now I wanted to make a spread to mark this wonderful day, but M had other plans... the sly devil! he never told me... but what a glorious dinner plan he had made!! But I insisted on making the sweet of the day! Well, that too had to be a shortcut he said.
Ok, as you wish! so I whipped out a ready mix pack of Gulab Jamun and made them as per the instructions on the pack. No, I won't put up a recipe for the little effort that went into making this delectable sweet, just the pic to show how well they turned out, but yes, one of these days, I am going to make gulab jamuns from scratch and proudly post them here!
