lazy cooks eggless grape mousse


Hello all!..........I missed you all sooooooo very  much.I've been MIA for about 3 weeks now due to unavoidable circumstances...for almost a week we had no net   
my parents..40th wedding anniversary
connection(so?..what else is new!)..then I pushed off to delhi to meet up with my parents who were down from canada for 3weeks..to celebrate their 40th  wedding anniversary.......Also I was the small town rat who goes to the city and is completely bowled over by everything(look at the buildings!...look at the cars..omg..so many people !)..just kidding..I spent all my time in the mall..shopping..shopping ..and more shopping!After I got back to my little mountainous abode,I got busy doing the winter summer changeover...you know putting the winter stuff away and taking out the summer stuff....pretty time consuming esp if along with the viral you get struck down by lazities(a form of being lazy where you just read a novel and ignore the mess around you)..anway all done..my cupboards are set..I should take their picture..my cupboards will never look so neat for the rest of the season!I did realise one thing ..I need to enroll in the 12 stepshopping de addiction programme..I'm a shpoholic..but I promise to change..........no more shopping for anything!...well....if its really really nice..only then!
I have missed a lot from all my fellow food bloggers...I will get to all your blogs..slowly but surely!
