What did I tell you folks, in this post? The next thing I will be getting are plums. Well guess what? My in-laws sent a huge bag filled with plums and .... more apples - a whole box full. Hmmmn. We'll be going to a farmer who presses apples into juice for us, later this week. There is no way we can finish all these apples in the next week. I have also given a few to other friends but there is such a large amount that the only thing I can think of is making apple juice out of them.
How was your weekend? For me it was fantastic and relaxing. I was out with a few friends on Friday to my fave Turkish restaurant. It's great and on Friday evenings they always have a belly dancer come in and entertain the guests. It was brilliant. On Sunday when Soeren got home we decided to order out from our favorite Indian restaurant.
As I was thinking of what to put together for his lunchbox I thought "Hey, I could use some of the leftovers!" So I warmed the naan bread gently and then spread it with cream cheese and a bit of ketchup. Then I used the vegetable "pakoras" (Indian type fritters) as a filler and made my unique "pakora" naan wraps! Soeren was delighted with these. Two juicy plums, a few dried Cranberries and sweet orange wedges make up the fruit for today. Treat for today - Stroop Waffles. Yummy!
Adult Version: The naan wraps are really a great idea. I would suggest to use a mint chutney instead of the ketchup. It goes well with the Indian taste of todays lunch.
Treat your self to a large fruity lassi (a yoghurt milkshake) too. Have a great week!
