Meeting school friends after long time is so very exciting. Tanu and Sruj have been my friends since 4th grade, and our friendship grew stronger with age. We had a very fun filled childhood with sleepovers, slumber parties and movie nights. From reading comics in the bed with torchlight, talking for hours together in phone, reading Mills&Boons secretly.
The journey we started as 3 girls, talking about cute boys and crushes, is now at the stage of 3 moms, talking about husbands, kids and mother-in-laws.
Though we are spread out in 3 continents, one in India, one in US and one in Germany, and meet only once a year or once in two years, the time does not make any difference, and when we meet it feels as is we were always together.
And the recipe, we all loved seafood as kids and this one is for my girlfriends who are always there when I need them.
