About 2 months late

3 Mar

Some resolutions for the next couple of months.

1) Goto my dentist regularly and finish all dental work. I will not let time off from work or my busy schedule affect this anymore.

2) Eat home cooked food 75% off the time during week days when I need more energy. i.e out of the 10 meals I will only eat out 2 to 3 times.

3) I will spend sometime for myself in the form of some physical exercise and will not let disorientation or shakiness dissuade me.

4) No.3 is a tough goal for me since I am always working around the house, husband or child and don’t spend time for myself. If I don’t follow it sincerely then I will at least give up chocolate for 6 months.

5) No new purchases until memorial weekend since I have a full closet with quality products and also since I blew too much last winter .

Some successful resolutions since this new year.

1) Have maintained a clean environment in my home. Of course this has necessitated daily wipe downs of the kitchen, bathroom and maintaing order in the house but it feels priceless to live in a neat home (compared to what we were last year).

2) Sticking to Indian food. I am happy to report that whenever we have had food at home R&I have subsisted on foods we ate as we grew up. I feel Ani should learn to enjoy the wonderful variety that is part of our cuisine.

3) Eating dinner by 7:30 pm . Last year we were chastised by our family doctor to eat dinner 3 hours before sleep. This is finally happening.

    Good stock-taking. This is also called taking charge of oneself- something even very intelligent people fail to do even at a ripe old age.

    I welcome the restoration of Indian food. Before I went abroad, I believed lacto vegetarian food of any part of the world would suit my palate and stomach. I discovered that pastas, pizzas, and Chinese/Thai food, and preparations with western seasoning were deeply upsetting. I could relish Sub with grilled veggies, quality bagels with spread, some ingredients of barito bowl, burgers, sconce, puddings, pies, soups, etc. Of course, I love the American coffees, breads and butter, fruit and buttermilk, safe salads, etc. which are superior to what we get in India.

      Pops – A little history less on scones, originated in UK and are typically served with clotted cream and jam…I have made it a couple of times successfully. It has the least amount of fat of all the pastries sold in starbucks (I always get them in lieu or lower fat anything) and they are yummier.
