Sunday was a day well spent for me.After a long long time a couple of friends got together for a session of monopoly – recreating our childhood days(…er…not exactly, as somewhere in the middle someone was suggesting strip monopoly).I remember as kids we adored this game and spent endless summer afternoons loosing ourselves to buying and selling ,making homes and hotels and sometimes cheating:-)).Mum used to tear her hair apart trying to get us to come and eat or shower or sleep.If we had not finished the game we would actually set it aside very carefully in the corner so that we could resume the next day.Those were the days….sigh.Mum used to make us special treats and it was the best time ever.Its a shame that kids today have chosen the PSP and Video games over these classic board games.I dont have kids as yet so am not really in touch with what they are upto these days but i know they are not having as much fun as we did.
My friend made awesome lunch-the worlds best beef kebabs in peanut paste and palm nut oil, babaganoush, mind blowing zatar, rosto in garlic sauce,mashed potatoes …..the works.
Me on the other hand did’nt have to do much…just made some Chocolate Mousse(by popular demand) .I swear by this recipe as its very basic ,so simple and still so rich , light, fuffy and moist all at the same time. A healthier option to many high calorie desserts.
I have made it on so many ocassions and it has never failed me.Its a crowd pleaser.
Some fresh fruits and some whipped cream to go with it and u can hear everybody’s ooh’s n aah’s and that just brings a big smile to your face.
