Christmas is over and what a Christmas it was!! Glitz and glitter everywhere. Every house and every tree shimmering in beautiful colorful lights. Holiday songs playing on radio and television. Everybody shopping for gifts and every store outdoing itself in throwing holiday deals.

Christmas was in the air. Everywhere. πŸ™‚

Except, on social networking platforms, where war of word is going on about the showing offΒ of Christmas Gifts.

Big Question is – If we should post the picture of Gifts that we have given to our kids for Christmas?

Some argue, that this is a way of showing off of how much you can afford? How much you can spend on your gifts? How expensive your gifts are and how many of them you have bought?

Would it be called bragging, if you are posting a picture of your Kid with 10 gifts under Christmas tree for him?Β

Every parent wants to give their child the very best of the world, but not every parent can afford a new Tablet/Phone, or a brand new Video Game. Does that mean, that they love their kids any less? Or, should their kids feel less blessed this Christmas?

But, there is also another viewpoint. The perspective that it is a festive season, and holidays are for pampering your kids and loved ones with toys and gifts of expensive nature. If not now then when? You would love to have your kid to have that brand new video game this Christmas, if this is what he was longing for. So what’s wrong with that? If you want to post a picture of your elated kid with his Gifts, then what is wrong with kid? Everyone wants to see a Happy Child.

As they say, to each his own. In this case too, it depends on what are you trying to convey to the world and to your kid too. Ultimately, Christmas is the festival celebrating birth of Jesus, who has given everything for the less fortunate ones.

It is a festival of giving. Let us teach our kids importance of giving, along with rejoicing the joys of receiving.

Mouthwatering Monday – Egg and Potato Fritters

Egg and Potato Fritters by Jyoti Singh
Egg and Potato Fritters

Egg and Potato fritters, were an experiment turned out good. Just to tell you, all my experiments are not as successful. I tried making raspberry pie last week, which looked like a disaster, although it tasted yummy; but we will talk about my failures sometime later (never). Today we will just make some fritters, with potato and eggs. πŸ™‚

 

Ingredients

Method

  • Except egg, mix all the other ingredients in a bowl to make a sticky dough.
  • Roll this mix into small balls of 2 inches and flat them with your hand.
  • Heat oil in a shallow pan on low heat.
  • Whisk your egg a little to mix yellow part and add a pinch of salt to it.
  • Roll small dough balls into egg mixture thoroughly.
  • Fry these fritters on low heat, turning them both sides, till they are golden brown.
  • Keep in mind to heat on low flame, as egg cook easily so we have to give some time to potatoes for cooking.
  • Take them out, and serve with chutney or ranch/dip of your choice.

They should be served hot. Best combination is with tea or coffee. Enjoy this snack while I am off to learn about pies. 😦
