My Daughter My Critic

Hello my friends !

Minnie from Dream a dream, Live a life and thelady8home , Hope you all know her. It's a great pleasure to share the news that her new blog   thelady8home completes one year of blogging and also combining with Mother's Day event, she wants to celebrate and announced a Giveaway contest. When I saw the event details, I remember my ever bubbling daughter. I just like to share few things between us.

From the moment they placed her in my arms, I became more joyful than ever.
A mother's treasure is her daughter and My treasure is my daughter.
To my knowledge, among all the relations, mother- daughter relationship has a divine value. When we think about such a relationship, first thing that pops up in everyone's mind is that, they compliment each other, they work hard hand in hand and they connect. But it's not always the same in my case. When I start off in a friendly manner to advice her, it mostly ends up being a tom & jerry fight. Still it's hard for us to stay away from each other.
Many a times, I wonder, "Who's the mother here?"

You always need a person to judge your act and appearance, Let it be, my looks, my cooking, my way of communication, my public behaviour, a comment will slip out of my daughter's mouth immediately, whether it's a positive or negative remarks.

I have always enjoyed cooking for my daughter.  My daughter always enjoys to share her food with friends at school and come back home with wonderful comments.
 I searched in Minnie's blog. It is full of beautiful selective mouth watering recipes. I don't know what to select, each and every recipe is unique. My daughter's most favourite is chicken. At last I selected the extremely popular Tandoori Chicken recipe from Minnie's kitchen corner.

Visit her blog for the awesome recipes. You know, my daughter always use this word "Awesome".
