I feel weekends are more strenuous than weekdays. With family at home, kids activity clubs, classes, help with homework or project, weekend special lunches, herbal baths,etc. Am sure it’s the same for many of you?!
You might have had such smoothie bowls for breakfast, but look, we had it for dinner. Can any of you relate? 🙂
Last Sunday, after a heavy family lunch we both had no appetite even for a light dinner. However, I fed my kids and sat there exhausted. Then came my elder daughter, “Amma ( Mom), you made a smoothie last week, remember? You relax. I will make it, for you and Nanna (Dad)).”
After few minutes, she dragged us to show her lovely presentation. And, to appreciate her affection and decorative skills, I took a few snaps, shutting down my lazy moods. Hope you enjoy her handmade food and painting art 🙂
