When your home[/office!] is full of people ,stand up and ask -Who's gona cook for me? - and you will be really surprised to see how many people would like to pitch in and cook for the you..
Well,the other day I was too bored to cook.I had prepared sambar and veggie stir fry and kept the rasam pending.I was suddenly[as always] tempted to check my mail [and my blog] so sat in front of the PC and almost forgot about the rasam until I felt a tiny pang of hunger.
MIL who was watching me must have guessed that I had forget to make a dish!I turned to her and asked,'Amma, will you prepare rasam for me coz I don't feel like cooking'..[Usually I do the cooking coz I always feel its time my MIL took leave of the kitchen for she has been there without a break for more than 50 years!].Without waiting another second, she went to the kitchen and within 10 minutes I could catch the wonderful aroma of rasam wafting through the house..Yummm...
That's when I thought why not ask our people at home,office,neighbors the same question!!!I never felt like asking MIL [or hubby dear] to cook anything..But when I did,I was so touched to see her cooking with all her love.
OK folks,are you ready?Ask[request/plead/beg/threaten..] your family members,friends,fellow bloggers',neighbors,anyone,- if they will cook for you.It can be anything- like a simple cup of coffee that hubby dear prepared with all his love or you little one helping you decorate the cookie or cake,your friend's exotic dish specially prepared for you-just anything.You can guide them but let them do the chopping , stirring ,etc,etc,cleaning up the kitchen[that's the important thing ;)]..Failure is a part of life and it peeps into cooking as well.So,even if a recipe that your loved one prepared for you turned into a complete disaster send it across to me without a second thought.After all, its their love that matters,right?
Now,all you have to do is, ask someone what they would cook for you,click it and sit back and enjoy the meal and later send it to me.[No, not the dish just the recipe and the pic :)] .
Just a few guideline...
1.Since this is a vegetarian blog,only vegetarian dishes please.[No to eggs too...Sorry folks...]
