Pongal, treats and Blogs

Hi all...
Long time, now see.
I tried my hands on making Dosa today for my dinner.
I dint know that, preparing Dosa, plain and simple DOsa, had so many nuances.Dint get them in cicular shape at all. And One vaguely resemled the shape of the continent of Australia too:-)
And tomorrow is Pongal, The Indian Thanksgiving. Should be fun.
I caught up on most blogs today, got to read lots of interesting stories. In some blogs, the backlog was too much, so they remain in the pending state(I am reminded of my Embedded Systems, where I learnt pended, waiting, running, suspended, states, et al. Too geeky?:-))
I should say i went to a lot of treats(in chronological order..dhoda..)
1.Rama's at The Residency for her awesome GRE score.
2.Abhishek's sis' at her home for her birthday.
3.KD's at her home for New year.
4.TCK's at People's Park for his birthday.
5.Ramya and MK's at Alankar Grande for their birthdays.

Yet to come:Kaushi, Nandy and Sumedha's are on cards:-)
January is a month of birthdays in my friends' cirlce...

With such tight schedule of treats, I must stick to a fitness regimen, lest I should become a WEIGHT party...:-)
Ok then, Happy pongal and Makar Sankranthi everyone.
Byee.

As self cooking a part of life since engineering day, dosa was never a trouble but.. this chappati is still a troublee to me. I found a easy way to roll.

roll it any form - use a plate to cut it in round form. easy stuff.
