Another Vishu is over..last year's was not celebrated since we lost our uncle. This year, it was low-key .. with our daughter having school... Kept the kani .... which is my favorite part of Vishu..more than the vishu kaineettam or the Sadya (feast)..
I made a Sadya with the usual Sambar, aviyal, ulli curry, mambazha pulissery, pavakka khichdi, parippum neyyum, pappadam and payasam..and we got jackfruit thoran from our neighbor, so I decided not to make my intended cabbage thoran. With hubby and father-in-law, Vishu was not bad. but yeah lot of time spent connecting to my brother and sister and parents..and also in a nostalgic mood with all the lovely memories of the Vishus past. ..
Since the vacation is nearing I did not feel too bad about a not too fun packed Vishu for our daughter.. Good times are nearly here .... !!
