Chana Jor Garam - A Tangy Spicy Oven Roasted Crispy Chickpeas

The summer vacation is over. Finally! 

I had hyperventilated at the start of the break as to how will we survive the super long vacation. But as I was getting the boy ready for his "first day of kindergarten", I knew I wasn't ready. 

All I wanted was one more day of sleeping in; just one more cuddling up and reading a book under the sheets; just another chance of messing up the kitchen together; one more dip at the community pool; one more after dinner ice cream treat and the list goes on. 

The boy was excited to go to the "big school" in a school bus. The entire preschool year I had a tough time dropping him off. He would cling to me and his teacher had to literally peel him off me. It ached my heart a little when he gave me a hurried hug and a careless kiss and marched into the big yellow bus and didn't even look back. I sighed.

Summer Cooler 4: Homemade Ginger Ale



This is perhaps the most sinful cooler I made this summer. I had to summon all my will power to restrict myself to just one glass.

The moment I saw Yumiko Fujimaki Kon-no post on the Shared Meal page, I knew I had to make it soon. And I did. Its a different story that I took forever to post it on the blog.

Maach er Chop - Bengali Style Fish Croquette and yes they are BAKED!



Past few  days had been cloudy and gloomy with busts of thunderstorm and flash flood warning! Now where did all the summer gorgeousness go???

A few more weeks of summer vacations is still left and the we are almost stranded indoors. In this weather all I want to do is cuddle up on the couch with a piping hot cup of tea and a book, but the 5 year old always has other plans!

Sweet Potato Oven Fries



We were having a general discussion on A Shared Meal regarding the health benefits of Sweet Potatoes. One thing let to the other and we started discussing my favorite sweet potato recipe - The utterly delicious Sweet Potatoes Oven Fries. That is when I realized that the recipe is not on the blog.
