We recently shifted to a new house. We bought a site which had a 20 year old house on it. The construction was very good but the design wasn't to our requirements.
The bedrooms were too small. The bathrooms were too big. One bathroom had a bath tub. We do not use bathtubs at all. Never.
We tried to see if we could renovate the existing house. Even after consulting some architects, friends to see if it were possible to do some changes we found that it couldn't be done. So we decided to demolish the house and construct a new one.
It took about a year but it is finally done. And we shifted after doing the house warming ceremony.
We have some additional space now. We already have enough furniture for the ground floor rooms. We will need to get some furniture for the upper floor rooms.
I am happy that I will have some gardening space too.
We already have a few grown trees. Mango, guava, pomegranate, coffee beans etc. We retained all those as we did not want to cut them down.
I would love to have a kitchen garden. I am also going to do some home composting with my kitchen waste.
Today I made date cake. what is so great about that?
First of all, I haven't baked anything for a long time. the oven was being used to store things instead of baking. so I am happy that I actually used the oven for what it was supposed to be used. I used to make cakes a few years back but stopped for no particular reason.
Another thing is that the cake came out very well. It is of course an egg less date cake. I used the recipe that I found on a site and made some changes. And we love the results. We couldn't wait till the cake was completely cool. We had it when it was still warm. And it tasted yummy enough to want to make it again. Next time, I will double the recipe.
I will post the pictures next time I make it because this time, we finished off the whole thing before I could take the pictures.
