Mutton Kheema Iddiyappam Biriyani

Mutton Kheema Iddiyappam Biriyani

I can’t believe…2016 is half the way through. Layers of experience, myriad emotions brushed on me. With each year passing by…I am trying to capture the best moment of my life to seal it for eternal happiness. As though time is running out…and, of course the time is indeed running so fast.

I have no exciting stories today. This time of the year is pretty rough on us. Its warm, humid and totally unkind. I am trying to avoid strolling and all sorts of out door activities…mostly glued to couch with phone. Otherwise, I did some cooking, especially the fun food to the little one. The rest of the time, I did nothing which actually turned out to mean a lot than a scheduled and structured day.
