First blog after the birth of my baby. What a bundle of joy she is. Life has changed so much - diapers, feeding, burping now rule my day. There is so much to write, so many feelings to share and so many moments to talk about and so many new learnings that I discover each day to brag about, but right now 6 weeks post baby I am just falling short of words to describe the miracle of life! Right now I am just exhilarated that she has outgrown the first set of clothes - actually diapers. Yes she has outgrown her newborn N sized diapers and has moved on to size 1. Yippie :-) PS: You learn the real meaning of sleepless nights only after a baby!

Mint chutney

For long I was searching for the recipe to make the perfect mint chutney and finally came across something we both liked. Here it is -

1 small bunch mint leaves
1 small bunch cilantro
1 medium onion
1 lemon juice
1/2 green chili pepper
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1 pinch black pepper
Salt to taste

Put all the ingredients in a grinder with a little water and grind well.
Here's a pic of the chutney with some dhoklas that I prepared.

My cooking spree is on like never before! (thanks to the taking some time off :P)

Somebody that I used to know..

Ok, this is not your typical Valentine's day song. Nevertheless, it caught my fancy yesterday while watching American Idol and now I cant stop the infinite loop that is running it. It also won the Grammy for the record of the year. Listen to it and judge it yourself! I especially like the high note in this paragraph -
But you didn't have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened
And that we were nothing
And I don't even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger
And that feels so rough
You didn't have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records
And then change your number
I guess that I don't need that though
Now you're just somebody that I used to know
Here's the song -
