Lazy Morning…Host Families and a Party…

Sunday May 30th 2010

Since I had promised myself that I would write everyday….so here I am with a very brief overview of day 2…!

Was good….slept in the hotel and got up late in the morning…had breakfast in the hotel and checked out by 1 in the afternoon and walked to the Bhatnagar residence for lunch….ate the leftover Indian yummy food that we cooked the previous night….so was fit…

Then our host families arrived to pick us….mine came last….and i was getting worried… they want me…..cause all other host families had written to the team members and mine had not…..but my worries were unfounded….cause the minute my host mother walked in….she was a sweet heart…seemed to be soo warm and fun…

We picked our bags and come to our respective homes….my host family is a husband and wife physiotherapist couple with three children….two girls and a boy aged…20..22…24…but only the eldest daughter Anna- Leena is home…..the house is beautiful… a nice garden and a swimming pool…of-course it is still tooo cold to swim so there is no water in the pool….

After we came home….we had a quick tour of the house…and then within half an hour…it was time to leave for our dinner party with the Swiss team that had come to India…..the party was nice….the food was interesting….the desert was a wonderful carrot cake…which i am soon going to get the recipe of and hopefully make when i am back in India…

The party got over….and i  got home…was afraid i was too late and my hosts would have gone to sleep….but they were sweet enough to be awake for me….we chatted for a while….and now i am in my room dying to sleep cause tomo is going to be a hectic day!

So that’s all for now…..good night all…and Danke for reading ….. 😉

    I didn’t forget my promise, I found the “Rueblichueche” recipe in english for you. Here we go:

    * 4 eggs
    * 3/4 cup white sugar
    * 1 1/2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
    * 4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    * 1 cup grated carrots
    * 1 cup ground almonds
    * 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
    * 1 teaspoon baking powder
    * 1 pinch salt
    * 3/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
    * 1 tablespoon lemon juice

    1. Prepare the 9 inch cake pan by rubbing the inside well with a drop of cooking oil and then scattering a little flour over it. Preheat oven to 360 degrees F (180 degrees C).
    2. Separate the eggs and beat the yolks into the sugar thoroughly. Add lemon juice and grated rind, carrots, almonds, flour, baking powder and salt. Mix well.
    3. Beat egg whites until stiff and fold into cake mixture. Pour batter into 9 inch cake pan.
    4. Bake at 360 degrees F (180 degrees C) for 45 minutes.
    5. This cake is often iced with 3/4 cup confectioners sugar into which is beaten 1 tablespoon lemon juice. Little marzipan carrots are the traditional decoration.
