Kitchen Fun - Beetroot Leaves Stuffed Roti

If you all have been following my cooking posts, you must have seen a post about ABC Juice (Apple Beetroot Carrot Cucumber) that I drink every day morning; something I got into habit since my cancer scare in 2017. I still drink it every day even though I am cancer free now.

Anyways, more than often the Beets I buy at Stop N Shop or Whole Foods come with fresh leaves, bright and green, itching me to pluck them and do something with them. So I stared making use of it just like how I would use Spinach or Methi (= Fenugreek) Leaves in Indian dishes - Rice, Curry, Chutney, Sambar, and Roti. Here is one of those concoctions I created out of these beautiful Beet Greens.

PS: Ignore my picture for now. I took it a little late, should have taken it immediately after the delivery of the groceries.

Book Critique – Seven Up (Stephanie Plum #7)

For review of all books in the series: Go here.

Stars: 3 / 5

Recommendation: A doggedly persistent gumshoe even with her ineptness, disorganized and above all having no inclination to use a weapon, it is a miracle that Stephanie has strong instincts to chase the case and bring it to a closure.

Seven Up is the seventh book in the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich, first published in July of 2001. It is set right after the events in the sixth book, Hot Six.

Stephanie Plum is a bounty hunter living in Trenton, New Jersey, working as a fugitive apprehension agent for her cousin, Vinnie's, Bail Bonds company. That begins the series with every book an adventure into Stephanie's trail onto fugitives and recovering them. And in the process she solves mysteries enabling her to hone her skills. There is a triangle love story for readers senses to feast on as well. Readers have been entertained so far with 27 books in the series and more to come, beginning with One for the Money in 1994 leading up to the 27th book Fortune and Glory to be released later this year. The stories are told in first person narration.
