DAY IN MY LIFE...



 

I know I have not been very regular writing on this blog, although  I would love to come up with something to put up here.. There are many things that cross my mind. But I need encouragement from you guys to keep me going . Please come up with comments and what you feel about the post so that we can keep the conversation going and I feel like writing more and more.
So I thought why not write about my day once in a while so that you can know a little more about me and my day.. a little questionnaire type of thing which helps one to write and for you to read what you like.




RIGHT NOW:
Sitting at the computer with my mid-morning cup of tea, Its 12.45 in the afternoon a little late for the mid-morning tea but I have Just come from the nearby local market.. Went to buy some fish, the fish was almost over with only a few not so good pieces left over. so had to come back without it.. But purchased other things like.. Leafy vegetable (Radish leaves and spinach) for tomorrow. WIMPY’S DIARY.. A book for my son. Sweet bun for making a sweet bread pudding.. , CORN for probable a corn salad or will make pasta with corn and white sauce. Fresh green grapes.

LOOKING OUT:
 Just came from out I know that its pretty warm outside inspire of being still in February and its supposed tube pleasant.

TODAYS MEAL:
BHENDI OR OKRA DRY VEGE
LEFTOVER CHICKEN CURRY
BEETROOT SALAD
LEFTOVER DRUMSTICK DAL (have to finish off the leftovers as my fridge is overflowing)

DINNER PLANS:
EGG BHURJI WITH BREAD AND SOUP OR COFFEE.

LOOKING AROUND THE HOUSE:
Lots of work to be done, due to my morning out ting, the morning routine did take a beating and there is so much to do.. I can see pile of folded clothes to be sorted and arranged , my to do list for the day has not yet started and that has a important to do item and that’s cleaning my living room extra items shelves which has been pending for a long long time.

WATCHING RIGHT NOW:
There are a few TV serials which seem to catch my interest; I cannot stick to one if the story line deviates from what is realistic. So right now what is working for me is
MAJHE MAN TUZHE ZALE – Marathi serial
TUMHARI PAKHI – A Hindi serial
I Love watching realistic TV and right now there is nothing much. Will watch MASTER-CHEF UK which has started this week but I haven’t yet been able to watch an episode.
I Watch lots of cooking programs on the TLC or fox traveler channels which are reruns so do get irritated sometimes.

READING:
Just got a book yesterday which is a 1993 edition Bollywood related stories book  , I love reading stories of things gone by  or memoirs so this is written by a film journalist who has seen actors in the 40’s and 50’s so it will be interesting for me.
I also read a lot from my huge pile of magazines.

I always smile when I see the expression "you guys" because it is a northern American phrase. The southerners would say "You all" or y'all.

People like to see photos of local scenery and even of shops and merchandise for the home.

Your food sounds so delicious I can smell it.

I would like to know what spices are used in what foods and for what reason. For years, all I used was salt and pepper!

Hi
Thanks for visiting and commenting Ladylydia..

As must be knowing Indians use a lot of spice in our cooking.
The common items for everyday use are chilli powder,turmeric powder, coriander-cumin powder and sometimes depending on a dish all spice powder.. The food is orange or yellowish in colour because of the use of these spices..
You can visit my other food blogs and try out something simple and let me know..

It would be a pleasure , if you do so.. keep in touch.

I love reading your blog. I chanced about it when I was searching for a recipe. Your blog gives a glimpse of the style of living in India.
