This sunday, we decided to do nothing but cook, eat and rest. No laundry... No shopping.. everything will have to wait until next weekend (I don't want to think about all that now...) This is our sunday meals menu..

Pudina pachadi (Mint chutney)

Afternoon Snacks:
Boiled peanuts (fresh peanuts in shells boiled with salt)
