I am cooking and cooking big time recently. Two reasons, firstly, the winter has tied me down at home and that deflects all my creative energy towards cooking. Secondly, my new Lodge Cast iron pan and skillet. I just can't stop cooking in them. They make the food tastier and healthier. Plus, they are so easy to maintain and are keeps for life. Believe me, when my grandmother asked me to take some of her 40 year old cast iron pans, I laughed saying that they looked charred and old. But know for sure I know, they are as good as gold.
My weight loss is going sooo slow and I am slacking. I need motivation and pepping up. Is any one interested in a month's food buddy weigh loss help program? I thought it would be great to keep each other motivated. Writing posts on low fat healthy recipes, exercise plans and personal tip of toning and keeping one self healthy. I really need the help and would love it if you guys would join. Leave a comment with your email and I will send you guys a mail explaining what I have in mind.

Crochet is going on well. I am making my first afghan and super excited about it. It kinda beats my stress level down and I am in peace once again. I loved the below book that I am reading for Amo, he loves it too. The book subtly teaches kids how the whole family works together in making a perfect home and how considerate they are towards each other. I love the way it rhymes and seems so traditional. Amo simply loves the peek-a-boo holes. He is so thrilled to put his wrist through it and wonder.
