Dahi Bhindi

Dahi Bhindi
Hope everyone is having a great summer, its almost to an end and I have mixed feelings about it.Laid back days and long evening will end and pretty soon it would be home works and running around chauffeuring kids to classes.
I do have a post still in works with all the awards fellow bloggers have passed on, I feel honored and thank all of you for the awards, promise to post it soon.
