After Rohan goes to school I do have a lot of house chores to be finished but things are now taking a set back and I just feel like sitting in front of laptops and keep browsing blog sites . It is an amazing world & it sort of feels like entering into Narnia. I feel so relaxed and calm with this new found friend.
Today I had put my foot down to structure my routine and try to balance myself better. I hope to be successful in my new attempt at balancing my addiction and house chores.
Since we are a having long weakened break in china and my hubby is traveling so I have nothing much planned except taking Rohan for his extra curricular activities .I wanted to have some nice salad. I checked my freezer section and what do I see!!! Wow prawns. I always love them and I had bag of mixed greens.
Long time back in a Sichuan restaurant I had a wonderful salad with a slightly different dressing. The first time I could only figure out the sesame oil in it rest I figured out with our subsequent visits. I asked the chef but he was reluctant to share the secret ingredients.
Well now I have discovered what goes to make this wonderful dressing with a little brainstorming and experimenting. That I have been making regularly.
I love the nutty flavor in sesame oil and a mixed with a little fresh orange juice and spicy soy sauce renders the salad a wonderful flavor…
