Corn and Spinach sandwich

Creamy Corn & Spinach Sandwich

You know how our minds are tuned to think of certain things certain ways but there is usually a simple, kinder explanation. If the woman in the house is sitting and scrolling on her phone, she must be whiling away time gossiping with friends, ignoring kids & household work. Or The woman may be relaxing after finishing her chores. If she dresses well, she probably doesn’t cook well or take care of the house. Or She likes to dress well. If she doesn’t dress well, she is a slouch. Or She is not really interested in dressing up. If she has had a successful singing career, she must have used the men around her. Or She may sing really well. If the guy doesn’t drink alcohol at the party, he is a loser, he must be scared of his parents/wife. Or He may not need alcohol to have fun. If the woman is drinking alcohol, she must be a rich, arrogant, bitch. Or The woman may need alcohol to get over her heartbreak, to get over Gemini Ganesan. If the woman watches movies all night, she is a no-good mother. Or That’s the only time she gets the remote. Vijay movies are a waste of time. Or This movie of Vijay is not great, but Vijay is a wonderful actor. Foodbetterbegood has only a few thousand followers. So it is no good. Or This little gem has not been discovered yet.

Ice cream sandwiches

Ice cream sandwiches | Fun dessert to make with kids

Not all recipes are born from inspiration. Not all of them are from grandma’s handbook. None in my family had the forethought to document any of the grandmas’ recipes. They were all too busy stuffing their faces with food and gossiping about the Athai in Chidambaram and the Mama in Vellore. These ice cream sandwiches were born out of spending too much time on Amazon.com trying to figure out the best stuff in the US that is not available on Amazon.in and that’ll fit into the 35 kg baggage allowance. This is a legitimate thing. Everyone does it. I hope. “I am making the best use of the opportunity”, I tell Jagan. I’ve saved all the import duty that I’d be spending if I bought the same stuff on Amazon.in. Jagan: “What if you didn’t buy these things at all? How much would you save then?” Jayanthi: “That’s hypothetical.” I am shopping in the US without being in the US. Without the visa interview, 18-hour flights, toilet paper, decoction coffee and suddenly being polite and well-mannered and traffic law-abiding. That’s something. Jagan is my Kuruvi. If you don’t know what Kuruvi means you can watch Vijay’s “Kuruvi” movie. Kuruvis are the wonderful people who go on these long flights and drink decoction coffee so that they can carry stuff back home without import duty – Smugglers. Jagan isn’t a full time kuruvi. He does that only for me and unwillingly. For others he may do more willingly. His actual job is much less flashy – he does panchayat in the US, I mean project management. Before I go off on a tangent let me tell you about these ice cream sandwiches. I found these ice cream sandwich molds on Amazon a few years back and I couldn’t resist. Note that I had not tasted ice cream sandwiches before. But I had to buy them because they were too cute. My kuruvi brought them for me. I admired them and then safely put them away in my cupboard. I possessed them now and it was ok. I could get on with other things. So they sat in my cupboard for a few years. This year, I happened to catch sight of these ice cream sandwich molds when I opened that cupboard. I showed them to Hasini and Yuvi. That’s all the accountability that I ever needed. They made sure to follow...
