Stuffed Potato Shells with a refreshing Summer Cooler drink| Mothers Day Special ~ Happy Mother’s Day
“A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie.”┬á ~Tenneva Jordan
I am blessed to have a super Mom and a super Daughter┬á:)! My Mom is a super strong women who is a cancer survivor patient┬áand is still fighting its after effects on daily basis from years. I salute her strong will power and positive attitude towards life. A women who cannot eat regular meals till now due to undergoing oral cancer few years back but still makes her kids and loved ones eat happily and feeds us all with delicious meals whenever possible with no regret towards life. I am proud of my Mom and pray god to make me┬ástrong and positive women as my Maa. Also I am thankful to god that my Mom is there with us despite all┬áthe illness…..
It is a special day for me today because my daughter planned a surprise on mother’s day┬áfor me. A morning that began with a long hug, cuddle and special wishes on being the best Mom by both my Kids. I adore all this ….It’s such a sweet feeling to be loved and made to feel so special.
I was told to take an early bath (on a weekend)┬áby my daughter and not to enter the kitchen till she permits me too :), I knew for sure something is cooking but I kept silent and obeyed her. It┬áis nice to be ignorant once in a while┬áspecially when you know its something “JUST FOR YOU”┬áby your loved ones.
It was┬ápre planned, menu all decided and ingredients related to it stored well in advanced. My domestic help also was looped in to help my daughter in the kitchen for today mornings breakfast, which I got to know later. My daughter turned into her teens this year and I have seen a major change in her, though she was always so caring but now I feel she really goes out-of-the-way to make Mamma comfortable and happy in all times┬á:).
She prepared a special breakfast for me today and I can’t stop blogging about it here in my space as I am so touched and feel blessed. The love and feelings behind such small things make a huge difference in life.
I was told to shut my eyes and sit like a good mommy without opening my eyes┬áat the dining table. And then came a special surprise for me. Beautifully styled and deliciously prepared Stuffed Potato Shells with a refreshing Summer Cooler drink :)! I was touched and tears started to flow down my eyes. it’s good to┬áshow your emotions on such sweet occasions, isn’t it???….
When asked, when she learnt this and how she made all this, I was told she took the help of a Nita Mehta small pocket sized cook book for both the recipes and prepared it in the┬ápresence of our domestic help. She knows Mamma still doesn’t allow her to experiment in the kitchen alone :).
How my Son wished me Happy Mother’s Day – Quick, Easy and Hassle Free┬ábut straight from the Heart :)!!!
Boys are Boys :), above pic shows how my son wished me, no wasting time just because playing basketball or cricket is more important but at the same time he needs to compete with sis to wish mamma better than her :). A quick less than 5 minutes work, a small paper, pen and his thoughts. But the most important is what he feels….. there are kids who don’t express the way other kids do and my son is among those who┬áare loving, sensitive and caring but do things differently without wasting too much time … lol! He surely knows how to make his maa happy… all his 5 minutes acts on special occasions┬ácan melt maa nicely and shower blessing and love… one imp question he always ask me is – Maa! Why do we not have Son’s Day..like the world celebrates mother’s day, daughter’s day, father’s day, grandparent’s day etc etc┬á?????? I still can’t find an answer to this…..if any of you have an answer please do share with me too :), at least I can revert to my lil one….though I nicely tell him that every day is a Son’s day and we don’t need a particular day to celebrate Sons :)…..they are just adorable as always :).
Without being too emotional anymore, let me share my daughters special breakfast recipe which she adapted from a cook book…. I loved it not because it was prepared by her but also because it was really awesome, delicious and worth sharing it here┬á:).
And now the recipe for the Summer Cooler ~ A two layered Drink!!!
A perfect drink for hot summers, easy quick and yummy.
Happy Mothers Day to all ~ Stayed happy and stay blessed always :).
