Looking forward to a fun weekend? How was your week? This past week has been rather cloudy and dreary around here, no matter though because I got to spend a fun afternoon earlier this week at a gift exchange party, and a cheerful afternoon yesterday with my good friends Devi, Del and Rose. What a fun afternoon seeing my dear friends turned out to be!
I haven’t seen my friend Devi in months, and meeting her was high overdue!
Del her husband broke his foot back in October climbing a ladder to pick figs for all his friends. You’ve heard of the saying “No good deed goes unpunished,” that’s how I felt when I heard about Del’s accident 😞. Poor guy was trying to do a good thing for his friends and had an unfortunate accident. He underwent a 6-hour surgery for his broken foot and a 6-week recovery period, and is still in a cast. His recovery will take a few more months and as you can expect my friend Devi has been very busy taking care of him, hence no opportunity for us to meet until now. My friend Rose and I were so happy to finally spend a relaxing afternoon with these two 😍❤️❤️.
On the menu on this afternoon was our go-to Indian vegetarian lunch that we prepare when the three of us get together. Devi always makes steamed idlis and coconut chutney, I make a lentil and veggie soup called sambhar, and Rose makes dessert. Here is a look at our simple yet scrumptious lunch menu.
