Gulab Jamun (Milk Balls)

I must say I am not much interested in cooking.  I like to look at food and dream about eating it, but making it is just not my thing.

 Recently, Hubby, I and our good friends , went to an Indian restaurant and enjoyed a brilliant meal which ended in a dessert called Milk Balls.  They brought a dish with two golf sized balls soaking in a syrup.  I was so full that I was only able to eat one and regretted it all the next day because I craved the one I left behind.   I went on-line and found a recipe which wasn't quite right.  I soldiered on and finally found  THE RIGHT ONE  I changed the sugar syrup though.  I added a pinch of cinnamon and 1/2 cup more sugar and 1/2 cup less water.  I also used all the seeds from the cardamom pod.

A Homemade Kegerator

Hubby's dream became a reality.  He has wanted  a Kegerator for sometime now.  We started making homemade wine quite a few years ago from our raspberry patch.  Homemade Raspberry Wine

A cute thing that happened.  Some stuff dried on a spoon and this is the result.  Kinda weird but made me smile!  Not really a blog post but I wanted to share it!

Hopefully, some of these projects will be finished soon.  The kitchen is almost completed.  I bought some molding for the upper wall which I still need to install and paint.
