Flax Pesto Spaghetti
For her birthday I made Chocolate Drip cake from Gayathri’s space but unfortunately could not click the pictures as my memory card had some problems while I was trying to click photos. Starters were Aloo tikki chaat and palak paneer pinwheels followed by lunch of Chole Bhature, Veg Biryani, raita, salad and Mango phirni for dessert. We had to go for a trip in Dublin on Sunday so at first, we decided not to invite people and just celebrate her birthday in the family only. All of a sudden husband dear changed the plan and invited all of his colleagues on Friday night to come over for lunch and birthday party. I immediately had to decide the menu in the night and start cooking everything on Saturday morning for about 15 people. The” husbands” always does that ,first, they tell people with proud that you are a food blogger and then burden you with high expectations.I am sure this is the story of all food bloggers.
As all of them know me being a food blogger,the expectations are always high and thankfully they all loved the food and kept telling me how much tasty it was. Hearing all the nice comments about my food always makes me feel so happy even if I did not get time to taste the food myself.That being said let us now enjoy the delicious flax pesto pasta. Stay tuned to know what my next seeds is.
