Aval Payasam for Thiruvonam!




I am EXCITED!
...when I imagine the crispers and store rooms and pantries of every Malayalee around the globe, brimming with vegetables, fruits and groceries...children dressed in all colours flying kites and enjoying the newly tied swings... some of them still busy preparing for the Athappoo, the beautiful floral carpet... the last minute shopping... last minute garment alterations at the tailors'....

Thiruvonam !!

Bisibele Bhath with Drumsticks





Well, after a break it requires a real lot of energy to get back to blogging for me.

 After loads of food; literally 'pigging out' breakfasts, lunches and dinners cooked by seasoned chefs around the world (did I tell you we were on a Royal Caribbean cruise in the Baltic for the final week of the holiday?) we realised the exquisiteness of the so called 'world cuisine'! French, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Greek, Thai, Mexican, Lebanese...you name it! they have it! ( the only regret you hold to would probably be the extra pounds you'd gained along side :))
