thanking all of you with a smile.....

Words are not enough to thank all of you my friends , all your heartfelt words meant a lot to me and i am so grateful to God to have sent so many nice people my way ........

I get such good vibes from all the wonderful people communicating with me and you would be pleased to know that i am trying my best to be cheerful and happy even though there are moments when i feel my heart sinking like a wrecked ship....those are my moments of solitude , i try and keep myself cheerful for everybody around ...i am reading books , all those books i wanted to read n have collected over time....though reading books is making me lazy too .....i am always siting on the couch and not moving for hours....someone kick my butt to move ....move on ....:)

The last post of mine which i posted with a heavy heart has been a sorry face of my blogs for so many days now....it has to change now as i don't want anymore sorry messages...i feel actually guilty whenever somebody feels shock reading those lines and drops a line to me ......... i feel like cheating you all when i am enjoying all the pleasures, yes i am cooking and taking pictures too and doing so many more things , not sad anymore ...........i owe this to all my friends here .....to tell you all that i am enjoying all the small little things in my life , Mithi will be there with me , always ....like a guardian angel ....in whatever i do wherever i go........

I am going to places i like , apart from window shopping n visiting friends , i visited a couple of agriculture and horticulture fairs ( held at IARI campus, Pusa , New Delhi ).........it was truly wonderful ...i clicked a lot if pictures of flowers and colorful plants and so many other garden paraphernalia , some of the pictures you can see...........

Assorted decorative pots made of terracotta and ceramic.........



 Brussels sprouts , so rarely available in the stores here n very pricey , it was good to see the plants.........




So many colors in veggies , do i love veggies as much as i love flowers ????


Does it bring a smile on your face ?? I feel so happy to see vegetables like this......

There were more flowers on display and i took pictures of those as well , but these veggies suit better for this blog .........organic veggies were on sale too and we got these beautiful fresh produce home , i picked up the summer squashes as they are grown here in the campus ( within 2 Km radius of my home ) , got just 2 colored bell peppers as Arvind is allergic to them n i can use them just for myself.......


 I made a colorful n cheerful pasta salad with them..........


 The bell peppers will be used later for a roasted bell peppers pasta probably . All the colored veggies make for a happy dinner for me but someone picks up the pasta shells only....:)

I bought plants of parsley and celery too and hope they will grow well and provide me with fresh flavors whenever needed......

I love you all for being with me in my difficult time , i have missed reading so many wonderful blogs in the past couple of months but i will catch up with everybody and will read everything as i learn so many new things from you all .....:)

  7. Good to see you bounce back...We are all aware that this is extremely dificult for you..it is very difficult to let go of the pain because we sometimes equate letting go with forgetting. However, I've learned that healing, or letting go of the pain, does not mean forgetting because moving on with life does not necessarily mean that we don't take a part of our lost love with us....memories is something that no one can steal from you....not even death! Cherish and treasure those memories.There are many ways to keep our children alive in our hearts and in the hearts of other people as well. I am certain, right now, Mithi is very happy and proud of you as well.

  24. hey sangeeta, i loved this pasta pic and was waiting eagerly for the recipe but finally made it myself going by the photo....and taking guidance from your mushroom/shallot pasta.....it turned out to be awesome.....i love the fact that it is such a nice way to consume so many good looking vegetables which are ofcourse healthy :) i make different versions of pasta but this picture of yours inspired me to go and buy all these vegetables..

    I had also tried 2 of your recipes when i had guests at my home 2 weeks back.i was trying to make some different starters which are of course healthy since my guest is also health food fanatic like me
    she had only introduced me to zuchini few days back....
    i made....i) zuchini stir fry ii) hara bhara kabab both turned out to be equally good...and even both the "husbands" loved it :-)
    thanks for churning out so unique recipes from your kitchen...
    this is so far my second comment but i read your blog regularly since i have come to it (7 months back) and have even tried out many recipes...'thanks a lot.....i am becoming a better cook now .....hehe..
    cheers...
