Lately ........ This and that.....

Coffee n muffins - vazhayila-1

Yes I know ! Its been quite some time. 
Hope you are having the best of this new year yet ! Just dropping in here with no purpose described, but the post may serve its own .
I have this new found addiction to my life like never before , to enjoy each and every moment and hold it with love in a loving cup , like grains of golden sand. While I am at it , I even forgot the day that marked vazhayila's existence , until a reader reminded me ! Its been 3 years( Jan-6th) ..Thanks much to all the readers for making this a popular space ....I am humbled !



Creamy Broccoli bites-1
Coffee beans-1

I am not really good at making and keeping resolutions at anytime of the year ! but I have made some determinations on the food side. More whole grains, beans, fish and herbs every week , and occasional indulgence in poultry and red meat . Ah lets see! I was determined to master learn baking by baking more often , and was doing a good job until my stove and oven broke and still waiting for the brand new one ! Thus leaving me with no choice but to do something I used to hate to the core ! takeout !
mmm...not as bad as I expected ..How simple is life and how fine tuned are we to dance around the twists and turns !

Whole Grains and Beans-1
Cilantro-1

I always wanted to start a Project 365 , but knowing myself completely , I decided against it ! May be I can use those pics I click here and there , as a filler post , just like this one :-)
To all those who e-mailed me , just to let u know , I am yet to respond to so many emails from November last , and I am sorry and will do as soon as I m done with so many other things thats been cluttering my hands for some time !

pad thai- take out-1

Happy Cooking and Wishing you all the best things in life this New Year
