Dosakaya Pachadi | Dosakaya Chutney ~ Andhra Special

>>  Saturday, May 26, 2012

During the week I was indisposed, I had nothing on hands to do but keep staring at the wall. Let me tell you that it's one hellava thing to do, you see lot of things that you think you can do once you are up on your feet. Imagine my mind was running ten times faster than I could actually recollect what I was thinking. On top of it, I had the frequent inquiry if things are alright. Well I wanted to ask how they thought that things were alright.

Anyway some of the best things happen even when you think, that things are bad. I got to spend wonderful time with my kids. I have never taken off time during Summer to be with them. It was really fun to see and enjoy what they did the whole day long. Plus Athamma was happy that I was around to scare (Gasp!) them. Well it was to be seen who was scared, anyway a week passed by and I enjoyed it immensely. The highlights were the feeding that I was subjected too. Well I am still treated the same, anyway that was completely not moving an inch and getting served right into your mouth, ok not exactly but almost. 

I got to enjoy Amma's and Athamma's cooking and the next two thalis were assembled during this week of relaxation.
