Boiled Peanuts

Enjoyed the festival of lights??? We too did... infact it was our first deepavali together(G's nd mine too)somehow last few deepavali we were not together.... becoz i had been in mangalore nd last year for delivery!!!.... so this year it had to be extra special not because both of us were together instead we had a extra member to celebrate with us :)..... Nd that G had 5 days leave we totally enjoyed it.
I was away from net,browsing and every extra thing which i did when he wasnt home ;). 3 of us enjoyed a lot. Yes, I feel sad that i couldn't wish any of u here but I m sure all will understand the feeling. 
Ok today is something very simple yet interesting!!!!! Cooked Peanuts/Boiled peanuts.
Boiled Peanuts are an acquired taste, but according to southerners, they are totally addictive. Isn’t it????  Peanuts have high calories,Although peanuts, even in their boiled state, contain a high fat content, they are in fact the good fats that dietitians are now urging people to eat in greater abundance. These fats are called monounsaturated fats and have health benefits such as asthma control and a reduced risk of developing Alzheimer's Disease and breast cancer.
So never bother about calories just attack :D
We have lots of memories to go with the raw peanuts…. We used to get the jumbo size kind of peanuts from my Grandma’s place and wait for amma to cook them and we used to just attack on them :D…   Many more stories just don’t want to bore all of ya out here :P so lets move on… J J J
