Frosting for the Cause: Whole Wheat Carrot Cake cupcakes

I have been MIA from the blog scene for about two weeks now as I am vacationing in India, and even though it’s late at night here and I am tired as hell, what I write today had to be blogged about.

October is Breast Awareness month and today I am doing my bit to spread the awareness.

Now as you all know (well, by “all” I mean those few of you who follow my blog), I am a big time procrastinator. I had volunteered for Frosting for the Cause a while back and knew much in advance that my post would go live on the 24th October. And even though I did not want to procrastinate this post, I did. It’s not entirely my “procrastinating self’s” fault. I have been real busy the last couple of weeks, with my parents visiting me and then me coming to India.

I won’t bore you with the details, but bottom line, I left this post- this very important post-for the last minute.

Why is this post important?

Because I am guest posting for Frosting for the Cause, a unique on-line project bringing together 365 volunteer bakers and bloggers across Canada, the United States and beyond. ‘Frosting for the Cause’ aims at raising funds and awareness for research into cancers affecting women.

Head over to their site for my guest post and the recipe for Whole Wheat Carrot Cake cupcakes.

Cooking for one: Egg Fried Rice

So, I made the mistake of watching a cooking show just before lunch time.

Yes, V again did not come home for lunch.

Little knickknacks or a quick sandwich would not do now. (My maggi packets are over so those of course were out of the question).

I really think God takes my requests way too seriously.

I remember last week I was cribbing that I am just too busy with stuff, and have to rush with lunch everyday and envying my friends whose husbands don’t come for lunch, thus don’t have to be bothered with cooking. (I am a horrible wife, I know). And God just took my cribbing too seriously and decided to give into my demand.

They rightly say, be careful what you wish for, it might just come true!
