Folks! There's soooo much to do and so little time. I am not sure when I will finish it all. I just started making the kuswar yesterday and in between managing the kids and the house my work is going at snail's pace. In the midst of it all I feel guilty for not posting the recipes that have been piling up since ages. I am not kidding but I still have a few of last year's recipes to post. So without further ado let me post them today and tomorrow after which I will relaaaaaaaax! You may not see me until next week cuz a girl's gotta rest! Too much of cooking and staying in the kitchen isn't gaining me any brownie points in the socialising department. I have a great family, cousins, friends and neighbours I want to spend my time with and share the Christmas cheer! So to all of you my darlings - Have a wonderful Christmas - enjoy the festivities, the bonding, the caring, sharing and all those lovely things that we MUST carry forward to the next year as well.
May this Christmas be just a reminder of the reason behind the season! May Jesus fill your lives with happiness today and always!!
Merry Christmas from our home to yours!!
