The Morning After...

...A fabulous dinner cooked by Rushina. She packed me off with some leftovers which we had this morning.

Breakfast today:

We polished off an entire casserole of steaming hot polenta with tomatoes and bell peppers covered with Provolone Piccante cheese. Crispy toasts slathered with hung yogurt with dill and garlic sauce. Creamy, cool, garlicy perfectly salted, excellent dip on the crispy toast. Alternated with some sweet and sour, tangy mountain tomato jam on toast. A dash of Sriracha sauce on the side. A bowl of fruits, apples, cantaloupe, pineapple, bananas, watermelon, papaya, grapes. And now for hot cup of masala tea.
Thank you Rushina and Nikhil.
One reason I love Sunday breakfasts with my parents.
Me: Dad try some Polenta, Rushina made it
Dad: Ok, pass me the Kalanta
Me: Dad its called Polenta
Dad: A rose- by any other name would smell as sweet.
He can quote Shakespeare at a blow of a whistle, but he can never remember a name.

Cheers Who wrote the sonnet of seaside romance? Guess Shakespeare would feel wordless at the sight of marine motif lace wedding dress. Amber’s beach simple wedding dresses unfold pictures of sea-inspired details like pearl beading, shelly appliqué and metallic embroidery. A profusion of drapes, bubbles, pleating and ruffling echoes to the very physique of the beach and the sea.

  7. I don't know whether I want tomato jam or yogurt dip for my wedding dinner. Depends on if I have red or white wedding gown. First the dowry costs, then the wedding banquet costs! I will barely have enough money for a cheap-ass bridal gown! :(
