This, that and other news...

It's been a while since I came here to post a new entry. I look at pictures, imagine various entries, but they fail to materialize.

So, instead of coming up with excuses, I am going to share some pictures of the food that we've enjoyed this month. There are many more pictures to share and hopefully the list of posts under "drafts" will get smaller in the coming year.

salmon-breakfast

We enjoyed a scrumptious brunch of smoked salmon, bagels, capers, avocados, tomatoes, scrambled eggs and cupcakes early this month.

butternut-soup

This was dinner during one of the busy December weekdays. Butternut Squash soup with fried onions on top, buttered toast and a simple tomato and avocado salad.

beans-w-quinoa

This was a weekend lunch, one of the few moments of relaxation. Aswin made this story-fry with black beans, peas and peppers and served it with quinoa. And yes, we had avocado on the side.

We also have some news to share. We are getting ready to welcome a new member to our family! I am due in January and at present am enjoying my vacation, getting the house ready and waiting.

I may not post as often, but will check in chance I get.

    We had dadpe pohe yesterday which one of our Maharashtrian friend had made. It was simply delicious.

    You should try it some time and I will send you the recipe. It seems it is not very elaborate but a good snack.
