Choco- Walnut Banana Bread

Cooking is a therapy only when you have people to relish what you have made.  My banana bread is slowly becoming a part of our family.

Sweet Mischief’s

DSC_6718This year will be the first year of setting up a Christmas Tree at home, Although we don’t celebrate at home as a tradition and culture. I just thought it will be a good thing to start to celebrate the festivity.

Over the weekend I dressed up the tree a bit more and decided to hang some sweet ornaments, While vedant was asleep i quietly decorated the tree, as he woke up the first thing he did was to snap the sweets from the tree. He brought it to me and said “open -Close”.  I said “It doesn’t open and there is nothing in it”

Curious Vedant surely dint trust me on that. As i turn to him after few minutes of silence, I caught him chewing on his sweets.

He had dropped the sweets in a glass of water  and as the  paper tore apart he popped the sweet in his mouth.

I sit and wonder if he is just a smart kid or am I dumb mom?
