Dear Atiya (and other loving endearments I can’t post publicly),
Today you are 14! You have already outgrown a very split-second “awkward” phase into a graceful, thoughtful and helpful young lady.You are always willing to try new tastes, even if apprehensive. You graciously eat whatever experiment I put in front of you. I cannot imagine enjoying cooking as much as I do without you and your sister. I anxiously wait to hear your low giggle and see your sister’s nod when you taste something you like. What a tasty adventure we’re on! Can’t wait to see where our taste buds take us next year. Love you.
This year your favorite foods included:
Lamb Chops grilled or breaded and fried
Fried Eggs and toast
Ramen noodles stir-fried with eggs
Red Velvet Cupcakes
Chocolate Chip Cookies
Khichuri and Egg curry
Baked Potatoes and Chili
Berry Cobbler and Ice-cream
Blondies and Brownies
Lamb Curry and Cous Cous
Ground Chicken Kabobs with herbs
Dried Mango slices
Mango Ice-cream and smoothie
Corn pancakes with blueberry sauce
Cauliflower fried rice
You don’t like salad, oatmeal or white bread/rolls. This year braces has made chewing challenging and slow for you. You have been most patient.
When you are ready to cook for yourself and others, I hope you can find all your favorite recipes here on this blog.
May you always eat well and giggle my baby,
Your Hungryphil Mom
