My daughter and daugther's-in-laws have been busy with their work and with their kids, some who are infants and some ready for high-school. Along with that, they have been preparing feasts for the whole family and guests at different occasions. We may not find enough time to blog them all. But we will made do with the pictures.
Here is the birthday feast for my Son-in-law, made by my daugther Preeti. She invited his office team and they continued to work during the party even though it was a weekend and Birthday. My daugther also multi-tasked because she had 2 young kids to distract her all the time.
And here is what my Daughter-in-law made for my grandsons birthday - Dahi-vada, Rasgulla and Aloo Boonda (her favourite),along with Chole.
This year again me and my two daughters-in-law have made these sweets and savory for our family. It is tough to keep the kids away from these till the pooja. But it's their holiday week and they are so active, they need all of this.
