Bunch of hungry stray cats!

In the early light, as morning breaks,
Three shadows emerge, with gentle grace.
Hungry stray cats, their eyes beseech,
Seeking solace, yearning for a feast.
At my doorsteps, they patiently wait,
Their presence known, their hunger innate.
With mews so soft, they express their plea,
Three souls in need, hoping for mercy.
I step outside, their hopeful eyes gleam,
As if they know, it’s time to redeem
Their hunger’s grip, their emptiness quelled,
With nourishment found, their spirits upheld.
I pour the food, a simple act of care,
And watch them gather, a grateful stare.
Their tails flicker, their purrs fill the air,
A symphony of thanks, a bond we share.
With every bite, their gratitude grows,
As if they whisper, “You heal our woes.”
In their humble eyes, I see their trust,
A connection formed, both kind and just.
For my heart finds joy in their content,
Their presence a reminder, heaven-sent.
In this moment, our worlds align,
A bond of compassion, truly divine.
Three hungry strays, now friends so dear,
Their loyalty everlasting, crystal clear.
Morning after morning, they return to me,
A testament to love’s ability.
For in their presence, I find delight,
In their gratitude, a radiant light.
And as we part ways, a bond remains,
Three hungry strays, forever ingrained.

Here you both are back to sleep again!

In a cozy little corner, where the sunbeams gently play,
Lived two cats so lazy, who snored the whole day away.
From sunrise to sunset, they’d slumber and they’d snore,
Their bellies full of treats, oh, what a life they bore!
One was named Sir Snugglepaws, with fur as black as night,
The other, Lady Whiskers, with eyes so shining bright.
They’d curl up on the sofa, their snores in perfect tune,
Dreaming of grand adventures while they slept away till noon.
Oh, Sir Snugglepaws, he loved to eat, his appetite immense,
He’d gobble up his breakfast, then demand a second chance.
From fish to fowl to cheesy bites, he devoured with delight,
His belly round and jiggly, a truly comical sight!
Lady Whiskers, on the other hand, had more refined tastes,
She dined on fancy feasts and caviar without a moment to waste.
She’d lick her paws so daintily, her manners so genteel,
A queen of culinary art, with a sophisticated zeal.
Together, they would nap, their contentment on display,
Dreaming of catching mice and chasing squirrels all day.
But as soon as they awoke, their hunger would arise,
And off they’d go to feast again, with voracious appetites.
They’d scamper to the kitchen, their tails held high with glee,
In search of tasty morsels, as happy as could be.
From tuna treats to catnip snacks, they’d eat without restraint,
Their love for food, a never-ending, insatiable enchant.
So, if you ever see them, those cats so full of bliss,
Remember their grand passion for a life of pure abyss.
For all they do is sleep and eat, but in their own sweet way,
They’ve mastered the art of relaxation, each and every day!

His first rainbow!

In the realm of innocence, a child’s eyes alight,
A tender soul, embracing nature’s delightful sight,
With wonder untamed, a world yet unknown,
A three-year-old child, on a rainbow’s throne.
Beside him, a mother, her love gently embraced,
Guiding his heart through life’s kaleidoscope, interlaced,
They stood hand in hand, under the heavens’ gentle sway,
A symphony of colors, painting their dreams in a display.
Bright hues adorned the sky, a celestial art,
A vibrant arc bridging Earth and heaven’s heart,
Whispers of raindrops danced upon the air,
As the child and his mother stood awestruck, a perfect pair.
His eyes widened, his laughter filled the space,
The first rainbow he beheld, a magical embrace,
Tiny fingers pointed, joy radiating from his face,
As mother and child marveled in this moment’s grace.
Together they pondered, the mysteries of light,
How the sun’s golden rays birthed a rainbow so bright,
Mother whispered softly, revealing nature’s secret art,
Of prismatic wonders painted by sunshine’s gentle dart.
With each hue, a promise, a tale of hope untold,
A tapestry of dreams, woven in colors bold,
Red, the flame of courage, burning deep within,
Orange, a zest for life, where adventure may begin.
Yellow, a sunbeam’s warmth, a heart filled with glee,
Green, nature’s embrace, a harmony set free,
Blue, the vast expanse, where dreams take flight,
Indigo, a soul’s yearning, for stars in the night.
Violet, the sweet song of dreams, whispered in the breeze,
A lullaby of possibilities, drifting through the trees,
The child’s eyes sparkled, a galaxy unveiled,
As the rainbow’s radiant beauty forever prevailed.
In that sacred moment, a bond forever grew,
A mother’s love, a child’s heart, forever true,
For as they watched the rainbow, hand in hand,
They glimpsed the magic of life, a love that would withstand.
And so, the child’s first rainbow became a cherished treasure,
A memory etched within, an eternal measure,
A testament to the beauty that surrounds us each day,
As mother and child, together, find their way.
For in the eyes of a child, the world is born anew,
A symphony of colors, a dream to pursue,
And with a mother’s love, they’ll forever stand,
Witnessing rainbows, hand in hand.

Why we are not talking/making Cashew powder bark(Chikki)?

Lols. Loved these lines a lot. So thought of using these as my recipe’s title.

This is a totally new kind of caramel popcorn making time idea. We tried and found that it is actually a no fail recipe. Very quick(trust me) as well.

Ingredients –

1- 3 Cups of powdered cashews

(You need to warm cashews for a minute on high in the microwave before grinding)

2- 1/4 Cup cashews broken pcs for garnishing.

3- 3 Cups sugar mixed with 1/2 cup of butter

4- 1/2 Tsp Soda by carb (a must- to make batk/chikki soft crunchy)

5- 1 Tap vanilla essence

6- 1 Tbsp finest powder of green cardamom(optional)

7- One big metal tray greased well for spreading the bark.

Method –

1- Take a heavy bottom pan and warm butter and sugar in it on low flame.

2- The moment it melts well and turns light brownish, mix in soda by carb with vanilla essence, mix (whisk) well. In high speed but carefully.

3- Now close the flame and immediately put in cashew powder and cardamom powder. Keep mixing very well.

4- Pour in greased metal tray and spread it as widely as you can.

5- Let it cool for 50-60 minutes and after that loft from one corner with knife slightly and start breaking into the pcs. Yummmm!!!
