My stress booster is sure cooking and having fun. Times when I feel really frustrated with things around. I just walk strait to the kitchen and start cooking some thing depending on my mood on that particular day. Every one knows this habit of mine and they just let be alone with out disturbing. On one such day, I walk into the kitchen to find just milk alone. I pair it with sugar, rose water, gulkand and china grass. It looks to cliche with no glamour at all. I peep out of my window to see a few roses bloomed in the garden. I add the petals to bring in a eye popping colour. Pour it into silicon moulds and place in the refrigerator to set. De – moulded the rose pudding and wolla… there was my new stress booster invention pudding that was made to cheer my soul. Cook yourself happy is my magic mantra . In fact, my kids make fun of me asking ” mom, when will you get stressed so that we can have some good food.”
