I have always noticed myself to be in a more elated state when I have plan to cook something Italian. I was in a real cheerful mood today and wanted to make an express meal for my family.
I was looking for stuffs in my pantry and was simultaneously humming “Pyar tunne kya kiya” song . I found spaghetti, very little left-over mushrooms, baby corns and bell peppers.My mom tossed her way from the living room hearing my voice at an usual time. I hardly noticed her around and kept singing the song, fantasizing my own “Fardeen = S factor”. (wink)
“God!! are you cooking something NOW!!!!?” asked my mom with a magazine in hand and her bifocal clinging between-life-to-death state on the edge of her nose.
“Yeeeees, some spaghetti” I replied.
She frowned a bit and said “I have left over rice and vegetable curry from today’s lunch and why don’t you plan and tell me things before hand”.She started with her usual rounds of complaints about me not enjoying her food these days. I tried my hands on cracking really silly jokes. Unable to stand my non-stop rambling, my mom uttered her usual statement “Anyways you will not listen to me” and headed back to her chair.
Yipppee!! I did succeed in making her leave the kitchen by convincing that I would make a “pseudo-fried rice” next day with the left over Indian rice and curry.
