A blogger would know about the mid life bloggers' crisis.
One of my buddy talks about having a bunch of exotic recipes drafted, but reluctant to push out to blog just because she loses words for the introductory part.
Over the years we find ourselves improving in cooking skills, selection of recipes, photographic talents, earning readers...fame... but doesn't really apply when it comes to the 'writing intro part'.. it's monotonous.. stale..boring when it comes to me.
At times I click more pictures than needed. Most of them look good and I eventually become hesistant to opt out any from the final selection. All should go in, as simple as that! ( err...as in the one, down )
Trying hard to change this complicated attitude of mine!
Well, past week I was in my native town with my in-laws, all 6 families living in individual spaces in a huge apartment. Sounds good, right?
Late wake ups..lazing around.. eat.. go out.. shop.. wander around the apt..being available to all..eat anywhere..sleep anywhere..chatter with all..stop till we drop..to bed (start the cycle from 'late wake ups') ;)
While enjoying such a lazy morning sipping the hot flavourful decoction coffee, made by Prema athai, I got a call from upstairs, Nammukka! (my husband's cousin)
Not at all..just woke up (glanced at the clock which said, 8:29 am) raised eyebrows.. bit my toungue..
Well, I am fixing lunch for my son. Kothu chapathis..why don't you come up and click? .. he has to leave in another 5 minutes!
whaa..? why not.?. camera?? batteries? yes! charged! zip..snap..whrrr run..up the stairs.. puff pant..
Nammukka ( yes, it's her pet name) was ready with the ingredients! well presented!
Mammamia, I thanked her heartily for this part and kept on clicking for the next 5 minutes!
Avoid the egg for an eggless version
How to Make
8:36 am!! Just on time to get in the bag!!
I din't bother her with queries while clicking, coz she was really doing things fast, for her son who had been waiting to rush to the school-bus-stop.
But I did make her pose/pause her hands every now and then ;)
Akka, this post is dedicated to you and your little son who loves this yummy power packed lunch!
.....................back down stairs, my cup of coffee was still piping hot!
