Comfort Food and Writing

A home that’s relaxed needs organisation and routine,

Things bought in advance, and no last minute cooking.

But there’s just one thing that used to cause me stress,

Paperwork and clearing my inbox, something I’d rather attend to a lot less.

But now, I have a method that never fails,

A coping strategy for after, so that peace and happiness prevail.

It’s coffee or chai or kanda bhajiyas,

While I write out my mood till the grumpiness disappears.


Comfort food and writing – it really works,

And I feel light and happy, but I need a long walk.

There’s more on my middle, but my heart feels light,

My grumpy has gone, and now everything is just fine!

I love my chai time for many reasons. Sometimes it’s a way to destress, but often, it’s just because I love drinking chai while I read, or write.

Tarla Dalal has a nice recipe for Kanda Bhajiyas with pao but I’m to lazy to try it. I usually pick it up from the snack shop nearby.
