Vegetable Au Gratin

Sunday Diaries : What’s Cooking? Vegetable Au Gratin It Is!

Hey all the lovely people! Hope you’re enjoying your Sunday. I had a terrific day out last Sunday at the Quest Mall, Kolkata. Experienced the visual extravaganza that is Baahubali 2, and caught a glimpse of the new launches at MAC and Mother’s Day gifting options at the Kama Ayurveda store. I even picked up a Signature Essentials Gift Box for Women from Kama.

Today however, I chose to spend at home and with family. Family time is something I totally cherish, and weekends tend to be a bit lazy for me after a long week. 😀 So for a change, I cooked up a lunch at home today. 🙂

So What’s Cooking?

Vegetable au gratin is something I have been wanting to try for a long time now. I recall tasting it at sumptuous buffet meals across renowned restaurants in the city. But never really thought of preparing it until today. As rich as it may look, vegetable au gratin is a relatively simple dish to cook. You only need a good amount of assorted seasonal veggies to start off with. I had carrots, frozen peas, beans and even potatoes and mushrooms in my au gratin today. 🙂 Read more

Sunday Diaries : Bahubali 2 & A Day At Quest Mall (Contd.)

So I had left off after the review of the mighty Bahubali 2. But as I said, the day was eventful. 😀 Here is the rest of the diary.

THE REST OF THE DAY AT QUEST MALL :

After the marvel of Baahubali 2, it was time for me to hop around a bit. MAC has three new collections this month – the Lip Scrubtious, Work It Out and Colour Rocker. I did want to try out a few of the shades from the Colour Rocker range, but unfortunately they had run out of stock of the shades that I was looking for. I also wanted to play around with some of the colored mascaras (oh yes, they are exciting!) in MAC’s Work It Out collection, but again the shades I was keen on trying had been swept off the store. And coming to the Lip Scrubtious, I really wanted to take a whiff of those yummilicious flavored lip scrubs before I made up my mind on one. 😀 Read more

Baahubali 2 : The Conclusion

Sunday Diaries : Bahubali 2 & A Day At Quest Mall

Hey everyone! So it was an eventful Sunday with family. Finally caught up with Bahubali 2 : The Conclusion after waiting 2 longs days :P, hopped over to MAC and Kama Ayurveda, and had lunch with family. Now typing away at my desk as I’m so eager to share my day with you! I have a review for Baahubali 2 as well in the post, and it is more because I want to share with you the experience I had with Rajamouli’s brainchild, and less because you actually need it. 😀

My Experience of the Movie :

So finally I did manage to capture three top row seats and catch up with Bahubali 2: The Conclusion. After failed attempts to get tickets in nearby theaters, I eventually landed up in INOX at the Quest Mall. You know that famous question that has been tormenting us Indians for the last two years? Well we all know. And so many of us who made up our mind to watch The Conclusion right after watching the first part. More so because of the visual grandiose that the movie is. 🙂 Read more
