Cooking in Pajamas

Stories and Musings from Wayfaring Adventurers and Aspiring Home Cooks.






Hello and welcome!

We're Sumu &Anu.

We've known each other pretty much forever, and this blog is our way of documenting our culinary exploits, and some non-culinary exploits as well. We're not always on the same page, or in the same state, or even on the same continent, but two things are generally true:

At least one of us is not paying attention

So I was terribly sick last week whilst recovering from Coachella so I've decided to treat you guys with not one but TWO whole posts! I know right?! So awesome. You can thank me later. AND to make things better... instead of sharing just a single song... I'm going to gift you with a whole playlist of my favorite songs from Coachella! So very typical of me, I didn't double check my flight timings when booking so I ended up flying out to LAX a whole 10 hours before the rest of my group. I decid

I'm sure most of y'all have been on a bar crawl - you have a list of bars, and you hit them up one after the other, sipping a little of this and a little of that at each one.

Everyday when I walk back from the bus

I'm actually really torn on which song to treat you guys to this week. So I'm gonna let you guys choose! "Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy" OR "Cowboy Casanova," because who doesn't love Carrie Underwood.

I hate buying special ingredients whenever I'm cooking. There are so many different varieties of food I love

Anyone who has had the honor of being in my presence this week knows that I've been playing one song on repeat. One song. All week. Why you may ask? DUH...BECAUSE IT'S AMAZING. (Now's when you play this song and dance along while finishing to read this post.) My brother was visiting me for a week and I quickly realized 1) apparently no one comes to work during the holidays in my office, meaning sub-par lunches and dinners all week and 2) I hadn't done groceries in weeks, meaning I didn't hav
