This is a post I wanted to share about a month ago to be precise.. its just that I haven’t really managed to get my head around it. Amidst the 10km run that I have been training for, and the Bikram yoga I enrolled myself in to sustain a healthier lifestyle, and organizing photographs of Africa; buying time for a blog post seemed close to impossible. But now that the run is over and I am done sorting 7 memory cards (out of 9), I’m glad to say hello to my keyboard again. Continue reading
It was another slow work day and I was here… not minding my business and poking around to see what other kitchens were cooking and oozing out… And then I saw this beautiful and very neat and tidy blog. Hmmm this lady had some interesting recipes going… hey whats more is that the pictures she was posting up brought back a lot of memories, my memories of Goa. There were gorgeous pictures of beaches, houses, trees and I squinted my eyes to try and find the fine print… I was looking for the word “Goa” somewhere.. and there it was… in fact it was everywhere! Initially I was just enthralled by the assortment of recipes and failed to see “Goa” scattered everywhere. I immediately jumped on to twitter and asked this young lady how she found herself in Goa and if she was there on vacation; and then my ears were treated to a few beautiful words. “No, I’m a blogger from Goa!” My face lit up like a bunny on wheatgrass. A blogger from Goa?!??! I would have never thought. Her blog “Masala Herb” is like my kitchen away from home… I can almost smell everything from the mud to the clay pots and everything! I love Goan food, absolutely delicious and distinguishable from curries everywhere else in India… its just sad that I haven’t been at it yet; but this year I promised myself to get in touch with my roots.
I know what you’re thinking.. “How the hell can the words mexican and lasagna be incorporated in the same sentence?” and now you must also be thinking I am still suffering from a New Years hangover; either that or I have completely lost it.
This year one of my many resolutions is to try new things, things that may have amazed me or things that have never been heard of, even if it means testing on a few friends and poisoning a few others in the process. This breakfast lasagna was one such undertaking and I had invited my friend over to come and try out my so-called dish. When I spoke to her I was quite confident that I knew what I was doing and that there was nothing to worry about. Haha.. I think my brain was playing an April Fool’s joke on me a little too early… When I came back home.. even I gasped at my outrageous idea…”Mexican Lasagne ?!??” Continue reading
