Chandigarh always took me back to a time, quite many years ago, when my father has to go there very often for some case. Once for some reasons he has to extend his stay over there, so we too reached there in a car send by him to spend our weekend with him. At that time I was enchanted by the greenery and cleanliness of Chandigarh. After that many times we tag along with him and always loved the city.
This times too when a family friend invited us to accompany them, we didn’t let this opportunity go. Finally, three families went together in their own cars. We all had blast together specially kids. Luckily this time I have many photographs to share.
In hotel, kids enjoyed swimming the most.
Next day, it was decided that we will go to Kasaulli in their cars but my husband who has now became confident after driving till Chandigarh, wanted to drive even in the mountains..
At first scared, but later enjoyed so much that he forgot to stop at Kasaulli, so we all have to change our programme and instead of going back, it was decided that we will stop at Chael instead..
That day too, we enjoyed our ride very much enjoying nature in between and ate fresh fruits right from the trees.
We ladies can’ feel satisfied until we shop, So our next day went in shopping but other than this pine cone I didn’t brought anything and that too was for free.
Kids enjoyed the liberty given to them for three days to enjoy ice creams and colas as much they like.
While coming back I watched endless views of nature.
As the weather was not so perfect to step out and click photograph but still on my request he stopped the car to allow me to go into the fields of sunflower.
Later kids enjoyed bath in the fields with the water coming from tubewell.
How can I post something without any recipe? I am sharing one of my favourite breakfast. Very often, I was left with many chapattis and nobody in our house touches them, the very next day. One fine day I saw this recipe on Masterchef Sanjeev Kapoor’s show Cooksmart and I intentionally made extra chapattis that day, so that I can try this recipe. We all loved it, after that I tried with leftover bread and later with some bread and some chapatti and everytime it tasted divine.
