    @Nonya, that looks awesome! I'd love to know what's in each of those bowls. Can you identify the items?

    I like some of the patterned ceramic dishes in the photos of this thread. Ceramic dishes are not that widely used in India, compared to, say, Srilanka or Malaysia. One time when I was in Colombo, Srilanka, the local tour guide said that many foreigners like to go to the local Noritaké shop and buy things to take home. So, we went, and found out that they export to Singapore and KualaL'pur as well.

    Thursday: Spinach pakoda kadhi, broccolini, and white rice. Minced the stems of the broccolini to make broccoli rice for later.

    mia from here. not sure if my same boring food is missed or me the person is missed. as usual not able to post. most days it is a bowl like i did when i had the same gut problems a couple years back. keep it simple and eating from the bowl keeps my mind tricked. the problem is can't eat loads not can't eat too less.. bowls come to mt rescue.

    still on simple diet have a few more tests to be done. fingers crossed. what happens has to happen. one day at a time we go..
