What’s news !? Rains ☔️
The weather in Bangalore is dreamy. The lockdown here has been lifted and under the erstwhile normal we should be stepping out to explore the city esp. during the weekends; but not so much now. Surprisingly, we are still content to remain at home !
The home deliveries have been on a frenzy lately; we received a big carton of homegrown mangoes from a friend via Dunzo. Not sure about the name and what’s unusual about them is that the skin outside remains green, even after it has completely ripened, maybe a hint of yellow. Usually the ripe mangoes turn orange, but not this variety 🥭 ! This is probably our last of the mangoes for 2021 !
Moving on; much to my delight, Ikea has started home deliveries to Bangalore and I jumped on the chance to order a few stuff on their website, that I missed on our Hyderabad Ikea trip 👉 Delightfully Ikea 🏵 And they arrived 🎁 !!
Next major event was a dinner at my cousin’s place to celebrate a graduation, a birthday and a retirement. My cousin made an elaborate dinner and here’s her dinner party menu:
Starters – Chicken momos with chilli sauce, Chicken sausage & Chaat 😘
The chaat had a healthy twist to it, she added sprouts too !
Main course – Steamed plain rice, Chilli fish, Noodles, Beef stroganoff & Sheperd’s pie 🤗
She ticked on all boxes in terms of non-veg 😋
Dessert was a blueberry glazed vanilla layered cake 🎂. It was a birthday !
Once we ventured out to the local shop for groceries and bought these elegant lucky bamboo stems. They look perfect with the kink in their long slender stems 🎋. The white vase is from Ikea 😊.
The post started with rain so to end with rain ☔️, the perfect snack for a rainy evening will be the spicy Kerala mixture 😘
Till next post, take care !!
