The temperature is going high day by day.As we haven't made up our mind to go to India or not,the kids are getting real bored here.Evenings they are not able to ride their bicycles as the sun shines bright till 5:30 pm and its only after that they can even think of going outside.Some mornings they go to their nearby friends house or vice versa.Then the only way is to sit inside with their electronic games,so to get rid of that we went to the National Library and got some books. It's much better now seeing them reading those.The new library is such a huge World of Books or you can say a paradise for book lovers.So planning to go there often.
Today's recipe is a side dish with minced meat and green peas.This can be used as a sandwich filling inside Bread,Chapathi ,Kuboos or Tortillas and be given to kids in their lunch box.To make it healthy I have used homemade mince,made it with boneless Chicken.Now off to the recipe:
