HONORING MY MOTHER | Malabar for breakfast

A slow shift to more healthy eating for old and young alike; at least that is one this fam’s prime goals heading into this Christmas. A second goal seems more obvious, with everyone heading into this yule season already free from two years of restrictions brought about by the pandemic, celebrations are sure to become more lavish and sumptuous. As the saying goes, when the cat is away… In other words, we’ll try our best to not go over our heads. Besides, my first-born is coming to visit and he’s a vegetarian so…we’ll be needing all the help we can garner.

Alas, when one thinks about it, health and freedom from confinement may not be the only reasons not to go gaga this year-end. The soaring prices of most goods might also make one think twice about a lavish feast. Practical is in these days and unless one’s got enough to treat yourself and the fam, go for it. Otherwise, tone down a bit.

We have already gone on a run of two or three establishments and it appears that this early, there’s already a shortage of ground beef. Then, we have likewise noticed the sky-high price of onions and other veggies. If this trend, coming into December, continues, it will spells e-x-p-e-n-s-i-v-e celebrations for everyone.

So, what to do, what to do? We’re practically done storing on some goods as early as October and finished out Christmas shopping during this month of November. All that we’ve included in the list is already ticked. Next month until Christmas, if the mum’s estimation is accurate, we wouldn’t need to go out to shop anymore for Christmas preps.

So, grasshoppers out there take heed. These ants have done their chores early. Incidentally, I was reading through some December works I have written in the past years and this part always rings true:
“However, year-end fests can also be tough, especially on the wallet, if one were not too careful. A souped-up version like “eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow we starve”, may sound cute, but is never funny. I say let us not be like rabbits in the headlights, naturally drawn and frozen in our tracks when it comes to the bright lights of celebration.”
And that brings me to my own reason for trying to eat healthy this Christmas. Early this month, as two members of our batch 71 passed on, a classmate posted all the necessary dos and don’ts we seniors have got to do and watch out for. I thought, out of the fifteen in the list, I can only do twoMALABAR FOR BREAKFAST

I thought, out of the fifteen in the list, I can only do two! As such, (and may this be written with you as witness), I thereby promise to aim to do at least half of it. Or I can vow to stop reading about such things if I can’t do them.
