Almost a year back, I shared with you one of my favorite soups and wrote about how I was sitting with brown boxes everywhere around me. We were moving. Guess what? We are in a similar situation once again – brown boxes, suitcases partly packed and the whole house in complete disorder. There are two dissimilarities from last year to this year. Firstly, I was pregnant back then and I am a mom now. Secondly, we had moved just a few miles to a different locality and this time, we will be crossing oceans.
We are moving back to India! In less than a month!
Friends and families are waiting anxiously to cuddle our baby boy. It’s such an exciting time for the grandparents. We are waiting to go back and relish food from our favorite joints. I am looking forward to go back to my favorite street in Bangalore and shop my heart out with my girlfriends, even though shopping is no longer fun for me. Nothing fits! Still, it’s a happy feeling. At the same time, I am so going to miss my friends out here. It’s such a mixed bag of emotions! What’s worrying us the most is how our baby will adapt with the change? We have to adjust with jet lag, look for a place to live, buy stuff and finally settle down. With a four-month-old baby, it’s going to be quite adventurous!
The cake was a result of my mission to clear the pantry and of course, two over ripe bananas.
Even though banana is one of my favorite fruits, I am not a big fan of banana cake. This is the second time I baked a banana cake and it turned out so much better than the first time. I think it was the chocolaty-hazelnuty flavor from Nutella that did the magic. It just hit the right spot, was incredibly moist and not overly sweet. Perfect with a cup of tea!
This has been my go-to treat in between tons of packing.
