We were at the San Diego Wild Animal Park for most of the weekend. The weather was perfect, warm sun and cold air. Not too hot or cold. Blissful!!
I spent hours staring at gorgeous birds, laughing at their antics, taking tons of pictures and sipping ice cold lemonade. My little book is filled with ideas for new bird illustrations. Keep checking in for new birdscapes.
Today's birdscape is "Perched on a chair". Enjoy!

So, this is what we made today. Bread fritters. They taste amazing and are vegan (as far as I can tell)
Here is the recipe
• 8 Slices bread
• 1 Cup gram flour
• 1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
• Salt to taste
• 1/4 Cup water
• 1 Onion (chopped)
• 2 Potatoes
• 2 Pods garlic (ground)
• 1/2 inch ginger (ground)
• 1 Cup cooking oil
• 1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
• 1/2 tsp Red chilli powder
Mix gram flour and salt in a bowl. Add the water to it slowly and mix it till the batter is smooth and thick. (Batter is now ready)
Boil, peel and cut the potatoes in small pieces. Heat two tablespoons of oil in a frying pan. Add mustard seeds in the oil when it is hot. After a minute, add the chopped onion in the frying pan and fry it till it becomes golden brown. Add ground ginger and garlic to the fried onion. Add turmeric powder, red chilli powder and salt. Add chopped potatoes after a while. Mix them and cook for some time. (Stuffing is ready.)
Cut the side of the bread and cut it into small triangles. Heat oil in a frying pan. Fill the potato stuffing between two triangular pieces of bread. Dip it in the batter properly to cover it entirely with the batter. Fry it deep on the medium heat carefully.
Bread fritter is ready. Serve it with ketchup.
Enjoy it with a glass of chilled buttermilk :)

I'm thinking of making this a regular feature on my blog. A daily illustration of 'what I ate today'. Hopefully I will have time to both cook and draw lunch/ dinner. I'm so excited about it already!!

Apparently ‘Butter stool' made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic, it is made almost entirely of recycled milk containers!! It's also made from a single piece of material which when folded together can be hand assembled.
How cool is that!! It would look so gorgeous as a night stand or a side table.
