The bright sun and gentle breeze has made for a wonderful start to the week. It’s put me in such a good place that beside work, which goes by at a snails pace on good weather’s days, I can’t be bothered to do much beside lean towards the sun. Like yesterday, after work, I did some dinner prep and then lay on the day bed (bathed in the sun) and watched mindless TV (in the shade). For hours. Till V came home and hunger pangs overtook, all at once. Then we had a lovely easy baked dinner of aloo patties and paneer stuffed capsicum, both doused in Masala chilli sauce (yay, Maggie), on our lovely spider-free balcony furniture. Sipped on chilled sparkling water and apple juice. All in the evening sun.

This is what summer is made of.


  1. Though it was awesome to imagine, a picture could have been just perfect. Of you spider free balcony with all th yummy goodies.. :) Nice post. Hope the rest of the week is as great.

  3. Your post made me miss winters, or well, alteast cold weather, and miss craving for the sun. I have an overdose of it where I live :(

  4. While on Maggi, have you noticed the numerous new flavors they have? While some are alright, others are downright unedible

  5. Siri: rest of week - so far so good! Pictures: I just never get my act together - and the food too tasty to waste time photographing!

    Shub: Come live in London. You'll soon start missing the heat! But I know exactly what you mean.

    Parth: No I haven't tried any new Maggie stuff - any recommendations?

    How lovely. We have been invaded by cicadas this summer and haven't been able to use the back porch or deck all summer long.

    Please post some recipes once in a while. Paneer stuffed capsicum sounds delicious.
