Happy Mother’s Day to all you wonderful ladies out there!! Hope you have a fun and relaxing day doing exactly what makes you happy.
Last year I posted a couple of articles on Moms – both were poignant and sentimental. Mom was about the strong women who played a huge role in my life and Happy Mother’s Day! had some heartfelt poems about Moms.
This year I thought I would keep it lighthearted and share with you four cartoons about Moms. I bought this boxed set of greeting cards a while back, which had cartoons about Moms from The New Yorker magazine, and they are very funny. Enjoy!
Every year my family asks the same question around Mother’s Day. What do I want for Mother’s Day? What menu would I like? What do I want to do? Where do I want to go? Which restaurant can they make reservations at for dinner? Every year I tell them the same ten things. This is what I want for Mother’s Day. Continue reading What I Want For Mother’s Day→
This variation of Indian spiced potatoes is my all time favorite. I think that’s because it is what I grew up with. Any time my Mom made potatoes this is what she made. The recipe is very simple in flavoring and goes really well with dhal (spiced lentil soup) and rice, or as a side dish with fish or chicken. Continue reading Turmeric Spiced Potatoes→
I was nostalgic recently to have this tomato and onion dish my Mom and my Aunty Jaya used to make to have with bread when I was much younger and growing up in India. Back then in the late 70s bread wasn’t widely available where we lived, and when we could buy some it was more of a luxury than a norm, which meant that when we had bread it was a treat. One of the ways we ate bread was with tomato and onion sautéd in butter.
This is my go-to recipe when I want to make a quick quesadilla. Every time I’ve served this simple quesadilla to family and guests I’ve always received a “Wow, this is delicious” reaction. Continue reading Simple Quesadilla→
My Mom made the best grilled cheese sandwich. Growing up my Mom made grilled cheese sandwiches on a regular basis, especially on the weekends for a quick lunch. Hers was the only grilled cheese sandwich I knew. Continue reading Mom’s Grilled Cheese Sandwich→
Mom. How can such a simple three-letter word conjure up so much emotion? Love, devotion, beauty, rapture, and awe in all of us. Mom has to be the most loved word in the dictionary.
To every one of us, our Mom is the best, the most beautiful, the smartest, the best cook, and the best at everything she does. I don’t know anyone who when they talk about their Mom doesn’t talk with unadulterated affection. It’s pure Love. Why is that? Continue reading Happy Mother’s Day!→
With Mother’s Day coming up I thought I would take this opportunity to write a few words about my Mom. And a few words about my Aunts too who have given so much of their affection, time, and love. Continue reading Mom→
