Oh it’s that month of the year when I’m gonna be busy preparing for 4 parties. 4 parties in one month you may ask! Yeah, strange except for our son’s birthday, all the other special days fall in January! Daughter’s birthday comes first, and after a day we celebrate our anniversary, then in about 10 days Rajesh birthday and the very next day(not exactly in January) it’s my birthday. Too much happening in the month I say. At times it’s difficult to host so many parties. January is the month we party hard and have a gala time at home.
Also because my birthday is just next after Raj’s birthday, and there was a special anniversary dinner a week back, we mostly end up doing absolutely nothing for my birthday. I have been thinking, damn maybe I’m missing out all the special things for my birthday just cause of so many other parties before mine!
I do get my birthday gift, and I make sure it’s all nicely wrapped, with a label on it and all lovey dovey notes, otherwise I do not accept my gifts! 😀 But I think I miss the special treatment on my birthdays. We are all so tired after so organizing so many parties, I decide to just sit back and relax rather than planning and organizing one more party.
I am so thankful that our son’s birthday is not in January. A reason to cheer up thinking there is one more party even after January is over! Hahaha
If anyone of you was wondering and expecting new form of recipes, probably healthy ones like salads and soup in January from my blog, I’m very sorry to disappoint you. You see I stopped making new year resolutions, stopped the idea of feeding my tummy and family salads soon as new year begin in the idea of healthy eating. I stopped all of that! So sorry if I disappointed you.
All I believe in is healthy eating all day, throughout the year and indulge yourself in all your favorite delicacies once in a way.
When it comes to breakfast I’m more comfortable with all the Indian delicacies. After all it’s those foods that I ate and grew up. Even if some of the dishes take time in preparing, I feel it’s all worth it, totally!
This Kerala style egg curry/stew is one of my all time favorite. Paired with fresh homemade idiyappam, I see my kids who are fussy eater and wipe off the plate clean. There is no satisfaction big than seeing your kids eat all that you put on the plate.
Try this delicious, very easy and nutritious Kerala style egg stew for your next breakfast.
