MOM’S BIRTHDAY DINNER

This 31st may decided to do something for mom, as it was her birthday…she just wanted to invite close family hence the dinner was very casual. Got a great idea from Asha Khatau’s book…decided to make a sandwich bar..everyone could make thier own sandwitches.  As the weather was boiling hot outside decided to prepare the dips and sauces inadvance and chill them.

thanks to my little sister Ipshita, all the outside shopping was done. I decided to take care of the kitchen and she supported me by shopping all the cheeses, vegitables, breads as well as ordering the cake…

In the evening during prep time I specially have to thank both of my boys..my baby and my husband as Sid took care of him and he happliy eat and slept with his father…I was busy organising..
