Cream of Broccoli soup

There was a super moon last night and we spent quite some time trying to capture a good picture. It was a little cold and my fingers were getting numb and made it was hard to adjust the settings. But finally, I was able to capture one good picture. The moon looked beautiful.

I visited India this summer and it was around Mother’s day. I planned an entire day for mom as a surprise.

We watched the movie “jungle book”. The day started early and we had skipped our breakfast. So we decided to grab something and then get to the movie. I checked online and found that TGI Friday’s was close by. I did not want us to have a heavy meal as I had planned for a very good restaurant that I thought mom would enjoy. We ordered a broccoli cream bisque and a sandwich to share. The broccoli soup was very delicious and mom loved it. I could tell that she was very impressed because, almost everyone that she met got to hear about the mind blowing broccoli cream bisque 🙂 Today’s recipe is inspired from the bisque we had that day.

Today is my mom’s birthday 🙂

” Happy Birthday Maa “

I love you to the moon and back
