Happy Mom’s day! – Breakfast ideas – Avocado with honey

Avocado with honey being my mum’s fav, thought why not I post it on Mom’s day. This light breakfast, we prefer mostly for Sunday mornings.

After reading so many post today where everyone shared many sweet incident with their mom’s, all I remember is how I used to nag my mum everyday morning to drink milk, I hated milk to T, so everyday a drama was played. Milk should neither be hot nor cold, no foam, no cream. Mum prepares the way I want it (have no idea how) yet I will keep it my hand for long, then again when cream starts to form I  used to say “I will not drink this milk”. 

As little girl I hated food generally, have troubled her to the extremes that I remember getting few light slaps! After which, I used to cry buckets creating more drama! These are such a sweet memories, puts a smile on my face just with a thought of it! There are endless stories, incident and anecdote that could fill up page. The beauty is we haven’t changed much till today. I still do harass/irritate her. She sometime forgets and asks me same question she asked before, I respond saying “Come on Mrs. Rajashekar you can think, think think”. In the end I make her to answer. She is the same patient, enduring and loving. Till date I enjoy completely to irritate my mom and sis and argue with dad endlessly. But that’s my way of love for them :) You see we were pampered kids!
Ah miss you guys! and Mom you are the best, as always thanks for bring me into this world and for making me what I’m today for giving me the best education for life and for teaching me how I should grow as a good human! These pic are for you mum enjoy drooling over it  :)
To my sis who is a mum of two little ones, I’m amazed how beautifully she is playing her role, for her life revolves around my niece and nephew, you are such a gorgeous mum! 
And to all the mum’s you all are fabulous! happy mother’s day!
We consider Avocado with honey as good healthy and easy breakfast.
All you need is
Well ripe Avocado 1
Honey  1-2 tbspn (according to amount of sweetness you need)
Cut the avocado, scoop out the pulp, smash lightly add honey mix well and enjoy!

    Lovely post, Ananda – loved hearing your stories about your Mum, and your tormenting her – I’m sure I used to do the same with my Mum :-)

    Intrigued by this idea of avocado & honey – would never have thought of putting them together, but I bet it is delicious and a very healthy way to start the day.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog today – it was so lovely to hear from you.

    You know, I hated food too, when I was small. Even when I was a teenager and wanted to be model-thin. I drove my mom, grandmother – all the women really – in my life crazy with not wanting to eat. And my dad used to make my milk for me, just like your mom did. Your stories really hit home for me.
    Avocado with honey sounds interesting. And I certain your mom loved these pictures – what a thoughtful ‘gift’ to share with her!

  7. Gulmohar says:

    I remember something similar about my mom trying to make me drink milk and eat eggs 😀 Moms are the best !
    Avocado is one of our fav :-)

  8. Sobha Shyam says:

  9. kankana says:

    I could see myself a little bit in your post! I still hate milk and i still don’t drink if it has cream or foam or too cold or too hot ! 😛 Mom still tries to make me drink milk when I go home and my hubby smiles looking at us and he will say “ma now you know why I am saying we still not ready for kids” 😀
    I was myself never a foodie and was a complete drama queen with all the stomach pain excuse! Mom and Dad still can’t believe I have a food blog 😀

    I cannot believe I’ve not read or commented on this stunning Mothers Day post, I’ve been so busy lately I’m neglecting my favourite peeps. Apologies :)
    As always Ananda, such beautiful clicks & composition of photos, I love avocado :)

  11. Ely says:

    That the original breakfast, I’d try it, and you must have been a very naughty girl, thanks for this great post and best wishes to all mothers, every day should be their party. Hello

  12. Now Serving says:

    I am quite the anti-thesis of you in that I LOVE milk can guzzle several glasses a day or at least used to –
    Avacado & honey looks really yummy love the color!

  13. Ameena says:

    What a very sweet post…and what a lovely recipe! Simple and yet so flavorful. I can’t wait to try it!

  14. Sunitha says:

    Nice combination and I am commenting much later than mother’s day but I can relate to your saying how our mothers forcing one thing or the other seem to stick with us. Thankfully now they are a joy though earlier nothing less than war.

  15. Devaki says:

    As always Ananda your pics leave me speechless. love the simple and delish avocado honey guac.

    Wow! Look at you totally nailing the choux pastry :) Well done….I am so impressed. I have yet to summon the courage to make these beauties.

    Avocado honey looks great.

    Dear Ananda
    How are you? Wonderful piece of writing! I can bet, if you have taken up literature instead of physics, you would have excelled equally. I am sure you will write a book someday .( In any case you will have good skill as you are writing a Ph D thesis ha ha)
    Have a nice weekend

  18. Ushnish Ghosh says:

    Dear Ananda
    Excellent write up and photographs!!
    Yesterday I wrote a big comment here, I think it did not reach you!! There is problem with blogspot.
    Have a great week ahead

  19. Nami @ Just One Cookbook says:

    Hi Ananda! Thank you for leaving your very kind words on my blog. Oh my goodness… your blog is beautiful! You are a such amazing photographer. I’m speechless now! I’m so happy I found your site, and please to meet you. :-)

  20. Catherine says:

    Awww what a lovely post! Your mum sounds lovely :) I’m the same with my mum – we are always bickering but we can never fall out for too long :)

  21. Devaki says:

    What an incredible line up Ananda – you are so good at teasing us with those unforgettable pics. I am so happy that you baked for your first ‘cake assignment’ like a pro – no surprise there :)

    THANK YOU so very much for helping to spread the word re: the Sicily trip and I wish you were going to be tehre…maybe next time! :)
