Soya Chunks Masala Recipe

I am getting Bored Mamma!!!

This is the second month of her summer vacation. And the day her vacations started we planned for two trips and that is how we kept her engaged for the first month of her vacation.

But come the second month and we found it too difficult to keep her busy.

I felt really bad for her and I had this feeling that I wasn’t able to spend a lot of time with her. Of course, due to my daily routine, commitments and my blogging here.

After a week of seeing her whiling away time with nothing worthwhile to do, we decide on going out at least during weekends. So, the last two weekends we went to a mall nearby and watched a couple of cartoon movies.

There is a nice playing area over there and we took her to the Playzone there, where she played for hours.

And, I shouldn’t forget about the donuts we had there, from MOD (Mad over Donuts). The three of us love MOD donuts a lot and whenever we go to that mall, we ensure that we have donuts there.

In the evening when we were driving back home we thought she will keep herself busy and wouldn’t say anything at least for another week and that she would be busy with T.V, PAINTING, BARBIE and stuff like that.

But just after three days, she started rhyming the same thing again – “I am getting bored, Mamma”.

We then ordered an activity crate for her, which is a monthly subscription.  The crate came and it was nice with a lot of creative things to do. She was so happy to receive those stuff.

But then she finished all those activities in about a day.  Hahaha….

Something that we realized is the fact that nothing can replace the “Quality time” you spend with your kids. And it matters a lot to them and that is precisely what they are looking for when they come to you saying, “they are bored”.

So now, the two of us are ensuring that both of us spend some time one by one with her every day.

And guess what! She never complained about getting bored after that.

Well I have a lot many other things to tell, all some nice parenting tips which I will continue in my next posts…So keep reading my blog…

  1. Sounds like you are figuring out how to successfully navigate through the summer months with your daughter. We have some of those “I’m bored” comments around here too. Since there are four boys in our household, I usually suggest they go find a brother to play with. If that doesn’t work, I remind them I have a long list of jobs/chores in the household that will keep them busy if they are still bored. But I never seem to hear that they are bored after that – it seems to cure them of boredom! Ha ha. Your recipe looks absolutely delicious – love the coconut. Enjoy the rest of your summer Puja!

    • Hahaha! that’s an interesting solution to “I am getting bored” problem, I too have tried it at times and have seen the same result of yours.
      And thankyou Allie, glad you liked the recipe. 🙂

  2. Such a great recipe for using soy chunks! I always have bags of it in my kitchen and I never know what to make with it 😀
    The spice combo you used here sounds so delicious, I’ll definitely try this!

  3. Loved this post, Puja! It is so important to give our kids our time and attention 🙂 I haven’t yet cooked with soya chunks, but I’m going to have to – this looks absolutely delicious!
