Bacon Wrapped Green Beans Bundles

Aren't these bundles super cuties?

Lil Sid thought so too.

He devoured them in no time. Mommy isn't complaining.

After a long time I bought these Turkey Bacon on Lil Sid insistence. 

When we first moved to Cincinnati, we were addicted to Bacon. Not only the thick, fatty Porky ones, but also the leaner Turkey and the Canadian ones too. It just had to have the word Bacon and we would gorge on. We used to have it almost every day - as a salad topping, in our sandwiches and even as a crisp side to our regular "daal-bhaat". It had become the new 'papad' for us.

Apple and Fennel Salad

A blink and you miss an entire month! Is this good or bad... I don't know.

What I know is that, I have no recollection of the month of May 2013. The month just wheezed past and I realized it was June already. A lot was happening in too short a time, but that's another blog post.

It was Lil Sid fourth Birthday on 26th May and it was a very close private affair with only very close friends participating in the revelry. When I had asked Sid what he wanted for his birthday, he said he wanted a "pretty cake with lots of MnMs". And I obliged. I am not much of a baker and my frosting/icing skill is average or even below. But I dared this time to make two Mommy-made cakes for Lil Sid and some Mommy-made cupcakes for his friends in school.
