Morning person

Keep away from them. That being said I can’t keep away from my son. A five year old being a morning person is atypical. These species are all cheerful, organized, and ever ready to fire a quick “good morning” to the lazy bums. My dad belongs to this exceptional breed and he tried his best to convert me but in vain. He even went up to the extent of brushing and excreting loudly. Not to mention those made up serial coughs, which sure woke our neighbors. I being the thick skinned buffalo reacted to all his gimmicks with a few grunts and buried myself under the bedsheets, which I could afford then. Looks like his curse has acted upon me now in the form of my son since I can’t turn my back if he screams potty in the morning and demands to be washed. I can’t turn my back if he screams,“I am hungry”. I can’t turn my back if he screams, “ I haven’t completed my homework “. I can’t turn my back if he screams “ BABY IS CRYING”. Talk about winter and its gets close to impossible to waking up early. Now that am a mother of two kids I hope god gives me the strength to become a morning person WHICH I HATE THE MOST.

Goan Prawn curry

When it comes to food am positive that every single human on this earth will show interest as long as you are not a saint (Am not sure if they are feeding their desires secretly). Don’t anticipate me to give you all the recipe considering the title. When I first saw the video of this recipe on you tube, I thought it may taste yuck but something just made me attempt it and I was quite amazed at the outcome. The blend of spices and the process of making it were quite out of the ordinary from the customary malayali recipes, which I am used to. Now I know that all of you are dying to know the recipe and here it goes


I have also observed that most of the goan food tastes like malayali food. The use of coconut milk and kokum is universal in both the regions.Well! who does not desire a change from routine. Go ahead and try the recipe.
P.S Let me also add that nobody can beat my mom's prawn recipe and if I have to share that you guys have to mail me :)
