It  is  middle  of  the  week,  the  grocery  shopping  didn’t  go  the  way  you  wanted  over  the  weekend. The  deadline  at  work  is  looming.  Just  a  few  extras  like  the  kid’s  activities  or  taking  your  elderly  parent  for  their  doctor’s  appointment.  If  this  sounds  familiar  then  read  on.   I  look  for  a  one  pot

  October  12th  was   Pitri  Paksha,  which  translates  to  The  fortnight  of  the  Ancestors.  This  new  moon  day  we  show  gratitude  to  our  ancestors.  Not  only  do  we  owe  our  existence  to  them,  it  is  due  to  their  contribution  that  we  enjoy  everything  else  in  this  world.  We  are  ourselves  because  of  the  gifts

  Chocolate  and  lentils?  How  is  that  going  to  work?  I  thought  the  same  too.  Until  I  tried  a  new  recipe.  Not  only  did  it  surprise  me  but  made  me  feel  less  guilty  thinking  that  the  lentil  content  in  the  mousse  actually  brings  in  a  protein  component  too. I  saw  this  recipe  by  Ellie  Krieger

  It  has  been  snowing  incessantly  for  the  last  few  days.  Sometimes  the  flakes  are  large  like  shredded  paper,  sometimes  they  are  like  fine  powder.  The  bare  branches  of  the  trees  have  a  white  highlight  as  if  in  an  artist’s  painting.  The  leaves  of  the  Alberta  Spruce  are  bent  with  the  weight  of  snow.  The

  Painting  the  landscape  around  my  neighbourhood  can be  a  child’s  play  right  now. Swoosh!  Swoosh!  A  big  stroke  with  Cerulean  blue  and  another  one  with  Cadmium yellow.  The  outline  of  an  old  barn  or  a  grain  silo  in  the  distance  and  you  are  done.  The  Canola  fields  stretching  out  as  far  as  the  eyes

  We  sat  on  the  beach  with  our  feet  buried  in  the  sand.  The  cold  water  of  the  Atlantic  ocean  slapped  our  feet.  Each  wave  brought  with  it  shells,  seaweeds,  crabs.  There  were  ducks  bobbing  in  the  water  and  gulls  flying  over  our  head.  “Dekhecho  ki  korche?”  Did  you  see  what  they  are  up  to?,
