just another day…but the rain pouring down is making me feel so special…a call from a distant loved one…cherishing the good old college memories..laughing at the crazy things we did back then…m smiling still…

To give the background score, i had a chirping bird…the smell of wet earth..a cup of my favorite green tea in hand..life is bliss!! amidst this setup i don’t feel like cooking an exhaustive meal but still wanna eat something different…ahhh… i look around and find this..

Had made a few Taco shells a couple of days back..i just decided to make the dips and here i have a nice and sumptuous appetizer…TEX-MEX TACOS…
