Yesterday rainfall was an unexpected one. After so many days of hide and seek it finally shown. As I step out of my room for my evening cup of tea, I was delighted to see showering. I immediately welcomed it by opening all the doors of my house. I let the fresh and cool air come in. A pleasant atmosphere is always enough to make you cheerful and we ladies are when happy, they love to cook something special for their loved ones . I decided to celebrate it by making a wonderful dinner for all of us.
Today too, I was aware that weather would be perfect after yesterday’s heavy rainfall I got up early to sit a little longer and to take a deep breath. I sat down in my balcony with my routine cup of tea to watch the clouds come and go. After a little breather I rushed back to my kitchen to pack lunch for my son.
After sending him to school, it’s the time for another cup with my husband who was still slept. I brought my diary to pen down my thoughts. After that, I got up as whole lots of work were calling my name, morning time is certainly not the perfect time for all such leisure of life. As usual, I relaxed down at 12.30 taking my laptop to share a recipe which was so easy to make.
Syrup was something I haven’t share on my blog before. I made this when I wanted to make Sabja seeds ice cream with rose syrup but rose syrup was not at home at that time. I decided to make that at home from dry rose petals which I bought some time back.
You can use this syrup in your milk or to your ice creams, cakes and other desserts.
