A Simple Salad

Hello Dear friends...Hope you all are doing well and ready to enjoy the weekend. As I have shared in my earlier post, one of my goal this year is to include more veggies and fruits to my plate. Eating simple but tasty food. So these days, I am trying making different food, searching for healthy and yummy recipes and experimenting in the kitchen whenever I get time. So I thought why not share some good ones here ...that's why for today I bring you a simple salad recipe. It is super easy, healthy and delicious. So here we go...recipe with the pictures

For this salad you need:  Grated Carrot, Beet root, Cucumber & Chopped Lettuce 

For salad dressing you need : 1tbs peanut butter, 1 tbs soy sauce, 1tsp black pepper, 1tsp chilli flakes, 1 garlic clove grated, 1 tsp grated ginger

Mix all dressing ingredients together and add it to the veggies.. 

And its ready to serve. 

Hope you are going to try it and I will see you soon here.
Eat healthy and be happy!

Winter Days

Hello!! Hope you all are doing well. I love snow for sure but who doesn't? We woke up to this beautiful morning scene last week.Cool weather and white snowy blanket everywhere. My kids love snow and all the fun it brings. I mostly like to go out and witness the magical wonderland quietly. But this time, snowball fight with kids was so much fun. And I realize its good to have that kind of fun with kids on regular basis. I am going to implement that in my life.

     Do you like this yarn? I loved the cute pink color with little bit of neon green shade....

I made these boot topper for my daughter during Christmas break. I loved this ribbed crochet stitch for two reasons first, its super easy to learn  and second, it gives a knitted look which I like a lot. I have tried this stitch with solid gray yarn too and it look more beautiful with solid color. I learned this stitch from my favourite resource" you tube". I am linking the original source for you. It is easier to learn when you watch it...stop anytime you like or go over again. Here is the link to the awesome tutorial. I used the solid yarn on top as I ran out of the base color but its giving a kind of sock look to it. Now, I am thinking about making a scraf for myself using the same stitch. I am kind of obsessed with crocheting these days. Do you remember the easy peasy braided scraf, I made few years ago in the picture?. Here is a link to it as well.

That is all for now, I see you soon here!

A New Start!

Happy 2016!

I am returning to the blogging world after a really long break. Hope this year will bring the best out of me. Every year comes with  a clean slate where you can write whatever you like. I will tell you what I want to work on this year. I want to be more outdoors this year and become more active. I want to be physically fit and healthy eater. I want to have a calm mind and gracious heart.  I want to worry less and learn to let go.

I want to observe the beauty around rather than the running a mad race from  one place to another . I want to be a good listener and learner. Enjoying what life has given me and treasure its good memories.

    Ending this post with these beautiful lines:
"Don't waste your time looking back on what you have lost. Move on, for life is not meant to be traveled backwards."

 See you soon here!
