I am a very private person when it comes to my family and i usually don’t share details on social media. This privacy also means that people on Instagram or Facebook get to see a lot of travel pics or just food / bake related pics.

Today i am going to introduce my daughter to you all, a chirpy, naughty and very perceptive 5 year old.  She is my one true love and she is my partner in my cooking experiments. A true foodie with a very very sweet tooth. A pasta lover, she started eating pasta at the age of 2 years and still loves it.

We bought this ABC Pasta packet during our vacation abroad and one fine Sunday couple of weeks back we made it for lunch. We had so much fun, initially we arranged the letters for A – Z (i think we didn’t find some of them), then tried to make words out of them and then we made a warm pasta dish out of it.

Making of ABC Pasta

To make this ABC pasta, we divided our responsibilities 🙂 . She filled the water for boiling the pasta, i boiled it. She washed the vegetables, i cut them finely. She ate some butter, I cooked with it. That Sunday the kitchen was filled with a laughter and mess, such a awesome time. I thank God for every thing and all the time and happiness ( i might sound philosophical but one must always count their blessings).

She very carefully arranged the letters in the middle with a little help from me

We picked vegetables of different colours and the end product – pasta looked like a rainbow with red, green, yellow colours.

A little note form this mommy to all other mommies, take out time from your busy schedule and spend with your kid…these are small pleasures of life 🙂
