Vellarikka Paruppu kootu with Beet+Carrot poriyal's been almost a week, myself and lil' one are down with worst viral fever second time in 3 weeks.Didn't have the least energy to get up and cook something.This is first time i had been down with something this bad and missed mom alot and her cooking.A hot glass of her pepper rasam will just cheer me up right out of the bed.This is the time i hate H's cooking the most..:).As being the only healthy person in the home now, he is the real VICTIM to our annoying tantrums..:))
This is my feel better food that i cooked right before getting sick..:))May be i knew i am gonna get sick and this will come in handy...well it did...Hope to get better soon and post my Christmas Special WBB entry soon...
