Hi foodies!
How have you all been? Hope you guys had a lovely weekend and are re-charged to handle this week’s work, schedules and stress. My weekend was great and fast. S & I registered ourselves with the local library and we spent a good amount of time glancing at the books and DVDs. We brought few home too. We love books a little too much. Books are amazing and they can do anything to you: make you laugh, make you think, make you analyze,importantly increases your vocabulary-there are zillion words unknown to us all these days!
My house is filled with both technical and non-technical books. He has books on digital signal processing, adaptive filter theory,communication systems, art of war, cast of characters , why we buy, and so on.My collections include Dan Brown, Khaled Hossini, John Grisham, Chetan Bhagat, Hilton Brown and offlate, I have started to buy books on recipes and diet.

S is a technical geek and he is too techie that he ends up correcting me in the market when I buy Macintosh apples as “No honey! its Apple Macintosh”. I end up staring at him. Also he ends up counting stuffs in the order “1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,A,B,C,D….”. Duuh! he he! 🙂 just kidding. I am just overdoing it. He isn’t that bad but one thing is for sure, he spends hours at Fry’s electronics and I go bonkers. I am more a novel-girl. I grew up reading Enid Blyton, Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys . I am sure girls who are reading it will understand. Yeah babes! Men are definitely from mars and we are from Venus. They are just too different.

I am currently reading “Shopaholic & Sister” by Sophie Kinsella. When I left India, my suitcase was half full with the books I bought from a sale in OXFORD ( a bookstore in Chennai). The store has a Cha Bar too. There is a whole lot of huge books on history, animals, heritage, countries, placed in the shelves. You can just grab one and end up reading it for hours with just a cup of coffee you ordered. They dont disturb you until its closing time :-). Isnt it that great?

Hey Chennaites out there!!! those who have not been there and those who love books (ofcourse loves Coffee!) just go drop in and it takes a heavy heart to step out of the store. This was one of the place S took me out after our engagement. I remember grabbing a book on “TRAVEL” and having Chocolate fudge and ice cream and discussing with him about the places to visit .Going on a date to a book store isn’t great idea for others but for us : It was awesome 🙂

So guys tell me: which is the current book you are reading? and who is your favorite author?

We spent most of our time watching those DVDs from library and last Saturday afternoon, we had a small BBQ party in the nearby park. About 10 of us met up, we made shrimps,chicken and vegetable patties. The day was bright, yellow and sunny but was too windy. My eyes and nose ended up watering and I was just waiting to get back home to sit on my favorite warm couch with hot Chai and bread.

The post for today is home-style easy garlic bread. Its super easy to make and also super tasty to munch.I made them with few left over bread slices.



4 bread slices – cut diagonal
2 tbs unsalted butter – soften
2 tbs parsley – chopped
2-3 garlic – minced
Salt to taste

Whisk the butter, parsley, garlic and salt in a mixing bowl and keep aside.
Take the triangle shaped bread slices and spread the garlic mixture over it.
Pre-heat the oven to 325’F and broil the bread slices for 5 minutes and turn them over. Cook for another 3-5 minutes. Its important to keep an eye on them as they will get charred.
Let them rest for 5-10minutes and serve hot.

Simple yummy crispy home-made garlic bread is ready!

  24. Books always gets my prime attention..though the kind of books I choose are different in each stage of my life!!It started at simple-child fancy comics then went to Mills and boons during my late-teens,then some hard core romantic stuff..then gradually to thriller and investigative books..of course now I automatically lean towards the cookery section..strange isn't it??

    I make the gralic bread in a similar manner-one change though,I add garlic paste in place of minced garlic,rest all the same.

    Enjoyed reading through your post:)
