14th Feb was Valentine day. It is a silly day to celebrate love. Love should be celebrated every day. Not just one day. And with that one line, I sound bored.I know.
We sort of did. Yay ! The basic minimum. He got me a wonderful cake. He always gets me a cake. That is the least, I know his lazy bones does permit.
A cake on 14th Feb 2006:
Me: Oh Sweetie, I love you ❤
A cake on 14th Feb 2017
Me: Holly-Molly, there sits a kilo weight gain. Why couldn’t it be valentine sandwich?? What is wrong in that thought??!
On second thought- I think it is better Valentine is celebrated only once a year.
Nevermind the weight-gain. I had a bite, then another one, few more and few more and then stopped ..only to begin again. Look at the cake .. How can anyone stop after a bite, you must be very very cruel to not go for the second spoon of THAT?
Anyhow, moving ahead.
For the curious minds, the next question might be..”What did you do, ha? yeah, for him, on valentine? What did you get him?
I made a chapati, aka India bread. It came out pretty well. Can you see the shape? Cool,Eh 😀
For those of you, who couldn’t figure out what is pretty cool about that bread is.I will spell it out for you. It is a heart. A
Aha!Got it ? Eureka!
Shush, Now, listen, you observant folks. Very important. “Do not tell anyone that I cannot make perfect round roti aka Indian bread.” Do. Not. Nope. Zip your lips, sealed forever. Cross your heart and hope to die.
Especially, don’t go tell my husband it-wasn’t-intented-to-be-heart-shaped because what really matters is the shape at the end. And what is it? A heart.
So, Now folks, What do you think, which one is a better valentine must-have? (Hint: new age romance)
A heart shaped cake ( Naaah ..that is so 1947! Everyone does that since the big bang, cake, chocolate, flowers!)
A heart shaped roti (Now, that’s what I will call a symbol of love.. pure love and affection, very uncommon, very creative, very new age romance, every piece is unique!)
Gosh, Am so romantic. My husband must be feeling lucky.
And not hungry anymore.
