Love is in the air!

You 're the One for Me!

There I was -
One minute getting to know you,
enjoying you and wondering
where it would all lead...
and the next,
thinking about you all the time,
Knowing that I can never, ever
wanted to be without you!
I guess that's the way life is.
You're going along doing your everyday things,
and out of the blue,
life gives you this wonderful present,
a present you had no idea
how much you wanted.
That's what you are to me, you know,

~ (author is Unknown) but quoted by me to S in a letter for February 2006 V'day :)

5 years and 2 months - We (me & S) have long been 'committed' to each other and all this time, he has been both my strength and weakness. I truly cherish each and every moment  spent with him and we have definitely grown together all these years. I can only wish and hope for better days for many more years to come! :).

...and the biggest news of all - Yes! We are getting married this April :) & As you all know, the biggest advantage of marrying a food-blogger - you get to eat yummy food while you-know-who does the dishes!.. S - Are you listening! ;)

Wishing you all a very Happy Valentine's Day 

and today's recipe is one his favorites - 'Breakfast Potatoes with Fried Eggs'..Enjoy!

Breakfat Potatoes with Fried Eggs

4 small red potatoes (with skin)
1/2 onion, cut as juliennes

1 tsp olive oil
salt & pepper - to taste
1/2 tsp paprika
fresh corainder

1-2 eggs


1. Clean the potatoes by scrubbing them, prick with fork several times and then microwave for 3 minutes. this is just to soften them a little so that it takes less time to actually cook them.

2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a pan, saute onions until golden brown. Remove the potatoes, cut them into small cubes (with skin). Add these to the sauteed onions. Cover and cook for 3-4 mins on medium-low flame.

3. Season with salt, pepper and paprika. and mix in fresh coriander at last.

4. Grease a pan (I used the same one) with a little olive oil, break eggs right in the middle. I love to sprinkle some red pepper flakes when they are almost done.

5. Serve the eggs on the potatoes! Yum. :)
