Cooking has taken a back seat in my life. Right now its just Aaira and bits of Zaara. Having my parents down during this time has been such a blessing. Aaira is now 7 weeks old, and we are slowly getting into a routine – but everyday is still different, and I feel much more in control as time passes! We go out more often and we get more time to spend as a family.
Few weeks ago, Mr Z asked me to join him grocery shopping, without the kids, promising we would be back within half an hour. Though I went in anticipation, It was a welcome change. It had been a while since I picked up fresh fruits and veggies and I got the freshest bunch of Palak(Spinach) from the grocery. Im a huge Palak fan,and love it in Dals, salan, currys etc. My mum in law makes an aloo methi gosht and we love it! Its one of those dishes which I never get bored having. This is inspired by that dish, its palak instead of methi(Fenugreek) leaves.
This dish is probably the only one I cooked, though I have been baking! taking photographs or any ‘me’ time is scarce, but every time I see my children(wow! I love saying that!) I want time to stop, because I know they will not be my little babies forever! I still remember being with Zaara and know how quickly the first year goes by!
A string of design posts wait to be published from my drafts section, hopefully the coming week. We will also have a project update soon!!
