Protest Against Police Atrocities

My family and friends will be fasting from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on June 8 along with Anna Hazare in protest against the police atrocities on peaceful demonstrators demanding clean and transparent governance and an end to corruption. Will you join us?  Please leave your thoughts behind in the comments.

meat and vegetables, fire and spice, love and a brilliant winter!!

baby potato, baby corn, peppers, peas, baby broccoli

clear stock soup with shredded chicken and egg strings, Nepali yak milk (in my opinion, too fresh) cheese, relatively fresher kalimpong cheese but smellier and groovier, a half-kilo pack of amul processed cheddar, with cherry tomato, crumbled egg, grapes, oranges, and croutons (?).  

roasted cauliflower, with garlic flakes I think and braised tomato.  Large ripe tomato cut in halves, slathered in butter and salt, and nothing else.  Baked till starting to burn at the cut edges.

fresh mushrooms, salt and pepper, on to a hot lightly oiled pan, tossed for five minutes over medium heat and taken off the heat immediately.  Stays almost raw, just starting to absorb the virgin oil and the pepper and letting the salt pull its flavors out.

This was leftover fish, once again, roasted, negligible bad fats, and an utter overdose of secret goodness that only mom can reveal!

We never got any pics of the roast since it never came to the table, and by the time we realized it, even the kitchen was kind of empty.  But this was one roast to give a run to the one over at Zaiqa.
