Last week was one of those crazy weeks which flew by even before I could realize! And that’s good, because it was a happy busy week that I would love to re-live any time. The week, where catching up with friends was more fun than catching up with emails, enjoying the season and getting soaked up in the sun was more exciting than staying cozy at home with a book.
There were long drives, seeing new places, walking in the sun, running on the beach, eating out and of-course shopping. It was exhausting but exhilarating!
When I left Bangalore and came to US, there was one thing I was prepared to miss the most; my girlfriends. Hanging out in the coffee shop, shoe shopping after work, staying up late and talking about things that never mattered to anyone but us and laughing out loud on those silly jokes. I miss those moments, miss all of them!
Girlfriends can never be substituted or replaced but new girlfriends can be made anywhere and anytime. When I met these lovely bloggers(Rose, Vijji and Prerna) for the first time, I was not sure what to expect! I loved their work and admired them but little did I know that someday, they would become my friends. Friends I would love to hang out with, love to cook for and love to visit any day.
Last week, my new girlfriends and I took a trip to San Francisco, visited the ferry building and the farmer’s market. The whole day was all about eating, chatting, laughing, walking around with strollers, kids, cameras and capturing moments non-stop. It was a fun day out, one of a kind, which we decided to repeat more often.
On our way back home, I bought these gorgeous baby carrots. Tender, soft and so pretty! Veggies this fresh should be eaten raw or roasted, to bring out the sweetness and flavor and that is exactly what I did. I made some garlic pasta to go along with the roasted carrots which paired beautifully.
It was lovely and light spring meal on a warm night.
