When the cats are away, the mouse will become a pig.

As my readers(or at least those that are left)1 are probably aware, my parents are not in town. I am all alone. I can live the way I want. Apparently I want to go to sleep at two and wake up at ten. It seems I also want to eat cornflakes for breakfast with my coffee.

It’s not such a great thing living alone. I have to do chores like filling the water pots2, washing my clothes, switching on the water pump, watering the plants, etc, etc.

I also have to cook or buy my food. Cooking is adventure! But buying food is easier. πŸ˜› So far the only cooking I’ve done consists of brewing coffee, cooking Maggi for lunch and today I toasted bread for dinner.

Tomorrow I will have to cook lunch because I’m out of Maggi. πŸ˜› I’d better learn what the various dals are. πŸ˜‰

I shall make rotis tomorrow for dinner. I’ve never made them before so this should be interesting. Mwahaha! Maybe I’ll fry some chicken. Frying stuff is easy. It’s the curries that screw you over. Don’t pinch the line. It’s copyright!

I’ve been living downstairs almost all the time. Normally I’d be in my room most of the time but a combination of the World Cup and laziness have made me a fixture in the living room.

I can also listen to music very loudly. I think my neighbours have realised that fact too.

Well, there’s really not much else to say. Oh yeah, Never absent-mindedly remove the cover of the vessel containing boiling water with your bare hands. It’s a stupid thing to do and it hurts.

2.Okay so we use bottles, not pots. You got a problem if I say water pots?

    You could just buy more Maggi and save yourself the trouble, you know.
    Maggi and fried chicken. How bad can it be?

    I’m not too fond of instant noodles. πŸ˜› Besides it can’t be healthy just eating Maggi everyday for lunch.

    And I did cook today. πŸ˜›

    Here is a mutton recipe.
    Takes some time, but is delicious.
    Heat ghee in a pressure cooker, add chopped up tomatoes and salt and stir till all you are left with is paste. Add mutton previously marinated with curd, garlic paste and cashew paste. Throw in some crushed pepper corns. Shut the pressure cooker lid and whistle thrice. Then open it and stir till the water dries up.
    Its called afghani mutton. Although I have never tried it, you can try it with chicken, though then you may have to reduce the cooking time as chicken cooks faster. One whistle + drying time may be enough.

    I love being alone at home and managing everything! I am so jealous. πŸ˜€
