Lazy Saturday so far. Woke up a little late this morning after a late Friday night. Read about the crime reporter who got killed. Sad news seems to be prevailing in India. The country still survives. Amazing! Hey, did you all check out the new Google logo? These people simply "wow" me. The guitar is so cool.
Come weekend and we konkanis can ONLY think of food. I wanted to cook something interesting today. Unfortunately, the only vegetable that we had in the fridge was carrot. Great! My mind worked overtime to think of a yummy recipe with carrot. I could imagine my kids going ewww, carrots! We had some frozen pizza. That would take care of the kids. But what about my dear konkani husband's palate? Good news. I had some cooking oil. What could I possibly make with oil and carrots? Aah! Carrot fritters. Yummy! I am not kidding. Try it! Crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. A perfect combination. I also made carrot "upkari" (konkani for steamed), cooked some rice and dal, fried some papad and had a sumptuous vegetarian lunch. So I thought, till my hubby reminded me that I had to go grocery shopping and we should try the new Italian restaurant for dinner. Got to go now. Carrots anybody? ;-)
