THE LUNCH AT IVORY CALCUTTA

We had been to the Ivory kitchen at Camac street on the First of this month for a buffet lunch. The ambience was superb and the food was excellent. like all other buffet, there were a variety of dishes to choose from:- tandoori, italian and swiss desserts.

Pobo my grandson is quite a gentleman and his Mom gave him some soup which he relished!
We simply gorged ourselves on Chicken Kebabs and Bhetki fry.






My better half simply loves Dahi-vadas  which she ate to her heart's content. there was hardly any room for the desserts but we were not done yet. Ice-creams, brownies,mousse, langchas and gulabjamuns tarts and many more.
No we do not require a crane to lift us back to our car but we were totally enchanted and satiated!

My Grandson

Sankar took me to Meadowlands Hospital and Medical Center early morning yesterday and after a quick breakfast at Subway we reached there at about a quarter to eight. Ananya was lying on her bed in LR 4, all wired up with a channel in situ. The fetal ECG showed the heart rate varying from 125 to 150. We were lucky that her obstretician was soon available. Mrs. Alka Gor examined her and recommended a LUSC immediately.

She was wheeled to the operation room soon enough and we sat in her room in expectation. At 8.40am we heard a baby’s loud cry and after a few moments the nurse showed us a bonny boy. The baby was taken to the nursery and weighed:7lbs. Sankar was sent to the ground floor for the registration of the baby. I waited in LR4 and Ananya was wheeled in at about 9.30am. She appeared rather exhausted and recovering from spinal anaesthesia.


When Sankar came back with the papers we left for Poplar Street allowing Ananya to rest.

RED LOBSTER


REVERSE

Come the fourth of March and we do celebrate our daughter Ananya's birthday. This year we had a heavy lunch at home and we had to postpone our dining out.
Next day after touring Princeton, we picked her up from home and headed for the 'Red Lobster' at Secaucus. An exceedingly cosy place where we did not have to wait long to be seated.
The waiter,a Hispanic, was all courtsey and we ordered our favourite dishes; really it was Ananya's choice.

I started with hand tossed caesar salad while my better half had New england Clam chowder soup to commence the rituals.

MAIN COURSE

I chose grilled Maine lobster and shrimp. .
 A wood-grilled split Maine lobster tail, paired with two skewers of garlic-grilled shrimp topped with creamy lobster butter sauce. Served over wild rice pilaf. 19.99

PRINCETON

We had been to Princeton university on the 5th of March. As we all know this is tthe place where Albert Einstein stayed and taught when in USA and also the place where the "beautiful mind" John Nash studied and taught.
We missed the 1115am bus which we were intending to board for a guided tour of the campus but we joined a walking tour. A student took us around and told us the history of the various halls which we were thrilled to hear.

THE SNOW! THE SNOW!

I woke up to  the snow falling poetically all over. The road in front of our house was covered in white. A huge snowmover came and ploughed the snow to make the road passable for vehicles.We did not venture out in the morning.
After lunch Sankar took us to Babiesrus, a huge store where all types of babies goods and mother's requirements are available. The two ladies searched and bought for the unborn baby.

Adjacent to this shop was Wall-Marts, crowded as usual. Parking space was tough to come by. It was well below freezing point outside but we braved it to enter and was greeted by the warmth. An hour and half passed away when we came back to our house in Poplar Street. After a hot tea, my lady cooked dinner.
