Happy Mother’s day to all wonderful mother’s of the world.   
Mother is only relationship in the world which a child knows from the beginning.  Dad is only known to the child, when a mother tells him or her about him.  All mothers are great, wonderful, and unselfish, and who only knows to love and expect nothing in return, but a simple smile. 
I loved my mom a lot, but now when I myself have experienced motherhood, do I realize the suffering she put up with, to look after us. Even when I was throwing tantrum, she patiently stood there and tried to calm me down. 
She is the best friend I had. 
 She is the best cook I ever known.
She is the best critic.
She laughed with me, for all my crazy jokes.
She used to buy gift for me in spite of the fact she could not afford one for herself.
When I was young, she loved to dress me up when I would ask, how I looked, she would say I am the beautiful girl in the world.
She stayed awake when I was studying.
She would cry with me.
She joins me with movie I want to watch, even if she doesn’t understand the language.
She supports me in every thick and thin.
 Mom,  I made you a grandma, but you are not here to see them. I know you are watching your grand kids from Heaven as you are not with me. 
I miss you mom .
Yesterday while I was browsing my usual cookery channels in Malayalam language, I saw one of the episodes in a restaurant making this juice.  In that chef used pineapple, lime and mint. Since I have no lime in hand I used lemon. I plucked fresh mint from my garden. Asked hubby can I try this, as usual he give me go ahead signal. In no time I made this. At first I used only ½ tablespoon of sugar. My little one was not happy while taking a sip. But when I increased sugar by two more teaspoons, I got the result immediately and she was willing to finish it. If you like mint, and then go for it. Otherwise don’t try this one.  Here is the recipe. 
What you need
 Pineapple chopped: 1 1/4 cup
Lemon:  Juice of one lemon
Mint leaves: 10 no
Sugar: 1 tablespoon
Ice cubes: 5 no
Water: 1cup
How I made
In a blender combine everything and blend together to form a smooth consistency and strain through the strainer and set aside.  
Enjoy as much you wish with more ice.

Preparation time: 5 minutes
Yield: 2 serving
Verdict:  Yummy
Will you make it again: Yes I will.
