I simply had to share this because never ever in my life have I got such glowing compliments on ...of all things.....my cooking!
Oh well, my kids praise my baking every now and then and my alfredo sauce or basil pasta is always a favourite with them, but they are my kids and I have to discount whatever they may say.
Yesterday was pasta for lunch, for all the three of us. I was in a rush in the morning so I did what I thought was a very haphazard job, throwing spices and tomatoes and milk and cheese into the dish along with some chopped veggies. In fact I even managed to over-cook the pasta. When Ads came back home, he pressed a very grubby piece of paper into my hand. Amma, my friends have written reviews of your pasta, he said.
Reviews?? 4 kids had written their opinion, along with their names. Here they are.
Advaith's mother cooks very very good food.
Awesome, best in the solar system.
Your mom's food is very nice.
Advaith's mom, you are a great chef.
Gosh!!! I had this HUGE smile on my face that hasn't been wiped out even 24 hours later :)
Friend#2 has given me the best compliment I've ever received. Considering that I am a competent chef at the very best and nowhere close to great or awesome, I feel good that I can atleast satisfy the not-so-sophisticated taste buds of a bunch of hungry 7-year olds :))
