Can’t believe that one month of Summer holidays are already coming to an end. This month has been a roller coaster for us. I have had days where I cooked and clicked 5 recipes a day and I have also had days when I just didn’t cook anything at all, left the kitchen all clean and shiny. Since kids are enjoying their time with their grandparents, I decided to utilize this break well.

Made solid plans – I shopped a lot, yay waiting for that holiday we have been planning for past 6 months. It’s almost vacation time!

Ate as much possible outside whenever I was shopping, ate all things my favorite at what ever time I preferred to eat.

Completed 3 projects , so my holiday is definitely going to be a stress free one.

And enjoyed some tele, me time whenever I could.

Now that I got all my free time and had a gala party all by myself, it’s time to get the kids back home. I have been literally visiting kids and spending time with them and mom almost every 3rd day :D You see it’s hard to be away from them, even though I do enjoy the free time I get ;)

One of the dish I made for us (me and hubby) last week was this fajitas. Simple, easy and very budget friendly recipe these fajitas makes a quick weekend treats that you may be thinking. If you have the guacamole and sour cream ready, you just grill the chicken and roll it up. Voila your brunch/lunch for that relaxing weekend is ready!

  1. Loved reading your post Jyothi. I am sure you had a fabulous time. And like you said, it is nice to sneak in a little me time away from kids. But once that happens, we constantly think about them. Have a good rest of your vacation. The chicken fajitas look amazing.
