Blowing my own trumpet :)

I spoke too soon about Ro taking over cooking and the house cos i was sick..well he fell sick as well and now we are both under house arrest..Blah! To add to the misery, the weather is so crappy and i haven't gone out in 4 days...that's the longest I've stayed indoors. I'm feeling a whole lot better today, but still lethargic and am just not in the mood for anything, leave alone cooking. My house is in such a mess, desperately need to go grocery shopping and the laundry pile is longingly looking at me. We've been making do with sandwiches, soups, 2-minute noodle kits and pizza for the past few days and to tell you the truth I'm totally enjoying the 'not cooking' bit. I could really get used to it :)
On another note, a recipe of mine got published in the Hindu Metroplus, Trivandrum edition yesterday and i thank a good friend of mine who gave me that opportunity. I had no clue it was out till a few friends started buzzing me on FB saying they saw the article...i had no idea what article they were talking about till i browsed online to find they had put it up. You can read it here (link) if you're interested (the pic is about 1 1/2 yrs old..my hair is not that long any more, and my arms are def not that toned now :O).
Well..so thats the most exciting thing thats happened to me in a while...my claim to fame :)

Last weekend we went out to Greenwich Park and the Cherry Blossoms, among others, were a marvelous sight which im having trouble getting outta my mind. Since i dont have anything else to post, thought I'd post a few pics.






Hope I'd be back on my feet this week...see ya
