From the time Lil’M started her full time school, I hardly got time to spend with her. So this summer I have not enrolled her in any summer camp or in any summer class….it is just me and Lil’M time…and to my wonder…we already spent half of the holidays…enjoying…painting, playing, dancing, listening to music, reading a lot and cooking in between. Though keeping lil’M busy always is brainstorming job…I am loving the mornings when lil’M stands by side near the kitchen counter spreading Nutella on her toast and babbling non-stop or the smile on her face when I score low during our board games or when she pulls me from the kitchen to sit with her to watch her favourite movie and those endless hours of reading bedtime stories.
Spending time together, we mom and daughter duo made different snacks like besan ladoo, rava lodoo, burfi, murukku, pudding, sandwiches, etc. for lil’M’s doll parties and as a part of evening snacks to munch while watching IPL….As we were watching DIY videos on how to make doll dresses on youtube…Lil’M asked me to make ice lollies seeing one of the video. Even I love ice lollies and it’s been pretty long since I made some…so thought of making them immediately. Making ice lollies with kids is always fun. With little hands helping me out…I made different three different flavours of ice lollies. As mangoes and limes are in season….I made aamras, lemonade and aam panna flavoured ice lollies….If you are fan of ice lollies, then do try these delicious flavours….I am sure you gonna love these…Ice lollies are purest form of indulging chilled juice…..yum..yum…
