Life is hectic these days. If I catch eight hours of sleep , then its a great day. My day is scheduled with small breaks . I have to be constantly on the go to complete the tasks and daily chores , Face book is also a part of it . Yesterday was one of those days that K generously offered to make dinner . I am a “sit and eat at the table” kinda gal and its been a little more than 3 months since I sat at the table without being interrupted while eating. So with my little one tucked into bed earlier than usual, we finally had some time to ourselves , cook and eat without interruptions.
Thrity Umrigar’s first book left me enthralled at the Hyderabad airport. I was waiting to catch the flight back to where home is now . I had an option to spend between a sad cup of coffee for 100 bucks or this book. I opted for this book and I’m glad that last of the Indian currency that I had with me was not wasted.
Soup is something I can have any time of the year , whatever the weather might be. Somehow , a huge pot of soup simmering on the stove , brings me a feeling of being cozy , warm and content . The past couple of months we have been living on home made soups ,although Ive had hardly any time to click pictures , but I must say Ive tried quite a few soup and shorba recipes. I will post them as and when I try them again.
