Oh alright, I have been slack and not blogged. It has nothing to do with me being busy but there was not much to write. All I have done is cooked and eat and there is only so much you can write about that. so I thought I will combine a few days and blog together.
I was heartbroken after India’s loss in the T20 semifinal. I am passionate about cricket and follow my team with the same feelings. We played well but it was not our day. The better team won! My Friday was in a daze except I cooked paneer paratha for dinner. Now, usually paneer paratha is made in a plain dough. But in order to give it a healthy touch, my dough usually have some sort of greens. This time I kneaded it with methi (fenugreek) leaves. It tasted yum with a little bit of laal mirch Ka achar(red chilli pickle) and cool yoghurt. Dinner well done! Here’s the picture to prove it!
It was one of those rare Saturdays where we had nothing planned. So I was in a cleaning mode. There are so many small things in the house that never get your attention like arranging kitchen drawers. They were my focus for the day. It was good to see neat and tidy drawers with everything arranged after my hard work. Another random thing – I did a quiz on the net and this is what it said about me. Hmmmm
It was that time of the year again when you put the clocks an hour behind and get an hour back of sleeping time. But only if you are not a parent! Kids have no idea bout daylight saving or clocks, so they wake up their usual time. Same thing happened with us. We were wide awake at the usual hour and I decided to go for a walk to start my 30 day walk challenge. I was already 2 days late, so was determined to start. I did alright!
We also had a breakfast date with our friends. This time it was at Indian place in Harris park. Indian food – breakfast, lunch and dinner is all about Carbs. So if you are any sort of diet that doesn’t involve carbs, stay away from Indian meals. It was delicious and lots of fun, so much so that we did not take any pictures!
After a heavy breakfast, it was time for some light dinner. So I cooked vegetable Dalia. Dalia is broken wheat and is very nutritious and healthy. Its sweet version is had at breakfast in a lot of Indian households but I like the savoury version with lots of vegetables and onion tomato tempering. A little desi ghee on top and it is a full, wholesome meal. It will be a frequent meal in our house now that the weather is getting a little cooler. You drool over the pic! Till tomorrow….
