You might be thinking that Monday and fun-day don’t usually sit in the same car. Or at least they are not usual best friends in my dictionary. My week slowly catches up with the pace.
Why I am happy about Monday, you must be wondering.
There are two reasons:
It’s bright and sunny outside which is a rare sight in Finland during winter. And also because I love the sun. But I assume, that’s what everyone does.
These are garlicky and buttery naans which I made for lunch yesterday. I still have some dough resting in the fridge, and it can be used for dinner tonight. I guess happiness is when you bump into naan dough resting in your refrigerator and you know what’s your dinner’s gonna be like. 🙂
I would say, two things can not hide in this world — the sun and the aroma of garlic naan bread. The dazzling rays of the sun let everyone know that the sun is shining up in the sky. And the aromatic garlicky smell coming out of your kitchen would let everyone know what are you having for dinner. 🙂
