Cold coffee, sandwich & chocolate brownie with icecream

Its one of those days when you wake up and feel like the entire world is on slow motion! it takes forever to get things done, drag your self out of bed and lastly get the day over at work,Tuesdays just add to my misery..for me even God on that day seems to be extremely bored!

On days like these i love keeping cooking to the miminum..i can get done with the b’fast and lunch..and b’fast these days is oats & lunch was tomato rice pressure cooked, which thank fully turned out well! 🙂 [yes yes! i m bragging abut myself]

..through the day me n hubby end up havin quick conversations over chat about a lot of things ranging from what needs to cooked, to who’s boss said what and the likes of it..and somewhere during todays session i ended up saying ” i m extremely tired today..all i wanna go home and do is make egg sandwich and crash” and the sweet {mind you extremely sweet } hubby that i have he has offered to cook dinner tonight and let me read a book n relax!
althought he had to do quiet a bit of cajoling to do to get me to agree coz i was stuck up on eating egg for dinner..and he convinced me what he would cook eggs but something exotic with eggs!!

I completely love it when my hubby goes into this mood..coz he experiments so much and comes out with all these mind blowing dishes ..ya the self proclaimed head chef of our house..ask some of my friends who have eaten at our place! =D and i am hoping for one such simple but exotic dish!

so now that the loving wife that i am i decided to pitch in with my share I have offered to make us tall glasses of yummy cold coffee to add to go with the sandwich and also mayb some salad with cucumbers and whatever I can find in the fridge

…and as the conversation progressed we now have on the menu 2 glasses of cold coffee, one exotic sandwich & to top it off we decided to finish it off with some yummy brownie from Fab India & vanilla ice cream with chocolate sauce!! =D

ha! now who says being married is a pain!i so love being married..i remember days when i have gotten back from home wishing if only someone would make me somethin to eat and lo! after many years i have him to fulfil that very desire!

so this one’s for our extremly boring Tuesday that we hope to finish with a bang!!

A young wife sat on a sofa on a hot humid day, drinking iced tea and visiting her Mother. As they talked about life, about marriage, about the responsibilities of life and the obligations of adulthood, the mother clinked the ice cubes in her glass thoughtfully and turned a clear, sober glance upon her daughter. “Don’t forget your girlfriends,” she advised, swirling the tea leaves to the bottom of her glass. “They’ll be more important as you get older. No matter how much you love your husband, no matter how much you love the children you’ll have, you are still going to need girlfriends. Remember to go places with them now and then; do things with them. And remember that “girlfriends” are not only your friends, but your sisters, your daughters, and other relatives too. You’ll need other women. Women always do.”

“What a funny piece of advice,’ the young woman thought. “Haven’t I just gotten married? Haven’t I just joined the couple-world? I’m now a married woman, for goodness sake, a grownup, not a young girl who needs girlfriends! Surely my husband and the family we’ll start will be all I need to make my life worthwhile!” But she listened to her Mother; she kept contact with her girlfriends and made more each year. As the years tumbled by, one after another, she gradually came to understand that her Mom really knew what she was talking about. As time and nature work their changes and their mysteries upon a woman, girlfriends are the mainstays of her life.

After 50 years of living in this world, here is what I know about girlfriends:

Girlfriends bring you chicken curry when you need help.
Girlfriends keep your children and keep your secrets.
Girlfriends give advice when you ask for it. Sometimes you take it, sometimes you don’t.
Girlfriends don’t always tell you that you’re right, but they’re usually honest.
Girlfriends still love you, even when they don’t agree with your choices.
Girlfriends laugh with you, and you don’t need canned jokes to start the laughter.
Girlfriends pull you out of jams.
Girlfriends help you get out of bad relationships.
Girlfriends help you look for a new apartment, help you pack, and help you move.
Girlfriends will give a party for your son or daughter when they get married or have a baby, in whichever order that comes!
Girlfriends are there for you, in an instant and when the hard times come.
Girlfriends listen when you lose a job or a friend.
Girlfriends listen when your children break your heart.
Girlfriends listen when your parents’ minds and bodies fail.
Girlfriends support you when the men in your life let you down.
Girlfriends help you pick up the pieces when men pack up and go.
Girlfriends rejoice at what makes you happy, and are ready to go out and kill what makes you unhappy.
Times passes. Life happens. Distance separates. Children grow up. Love waxes and wanes. Hearts break. Careers end. Jobs come and go. Parents die. Colleagues forget favours. Men don’t call when they say they will.

BUT girlfriends are there, no matter how much time and how many miles are between you.
A girlfriend is never farther away than needing her can reach.
