Its the middle of May and its getting hotter than ever; the temperature reading in my car shows a blistering 45°C at 8:30am, and you know what, the summer has barely begun. Continue reading
I have been meaning to work on my first Risotto for about a year now; it was one of 2 food related new years resolutions, the second being baking bread… it will come, I am going to do it before the end of 2012 for sure. I have seen, heard and read about a lot of Risotto recipes; creamy delicious, broth drenched granules of rice. I had picked up my Arborio rice about 2-3 months ago… and snip snip, the packet was finally opened. Continue reading
Friday morning, blue skies, the crisp air after the midnight rain… mmmm the day was all good and I was going to keep it so. Jumped on my computer, picked my soundtrack for the day… ‘Wonderful Life’ by Loius Armstrong… absolutely love his crooning voice!
Finally I have managed to catch the bug again.. the writing bug that is. Feels good and I am so happy I can finally put my thoughts and ideas on paper… or the web rather. There has been so much going on, I am struggling making time for myself to breathe. So here’s a quick catch up.
Its been everywhere, and I’m not sure when the fig season is but I cant go past a crate of the juicy purplish little drop-shaped fruits without picking a few. There have been times when I have been tempted to pop one of those little things right into my mouth, but my mommy taught me better; so no fruit goes into my mouth without being washed.
“So what is pot luck?” I’hve had a few people come up and ask me that; I was under the impression that it was a common term, but apparently it isnt. To put it quite simply, it is a foodie’s haven and a retreat for the insane food blogger. What usually happens is that one person volunteers to host a gathering of the masses and the rest of us hungry animals bring in one caracass to the dinner table, and then.. we FEAST!
Food is always on my mind regardless of where I am, even more so when I travel cause I am so nosey and just have to know what everything tastes like.. well as long as it looks appetizing atleast. I stay away from things that still move… *shiver* . I had visited Nepal and they definitely didn’t have any live foods in sight, but infact they did have scrumptions amounts of Momos, and I will tell you more about them in my upcoming post. So now I feel terrible about my weight gain in Nepal, hence the last few posts have been focussed on getting me to shed those pounds; including a strenuous bootcamp at 6 in the a.m. plus running for 30-45 minutes and a whole lot of leaf eating… granted it isn’t really working, but atleast I can say I tried.
