Fresh Lemongrass and Ginger Drink


  

I disappeared from blogosphere for yet another week..
But this time I had a real good bad reasonL
I was diagnosed of an unnecessary growth in my nose..
And we had to spend quite a lot of time in hospital doing tests after tests to identify the root cause.
The worst phase was the 3 days when we had to wait for my biopsy results
Man…that was my longest weekend!! And probably the only time I felt weekend was too long and we just want it to be over.
I can’t pen down the feelings we went through during those 3 days..
When you realize you are this close to one of the most dreadful disease..And your life might never be the same again!
Thank to God and to my family for all their prayers...It was not what we feared and I felt soo relieved when doc called me to tell the test results

Needless to do say there was not much cooking happening in my kitchen recently.

Anyways we are back to the routine now and I was on a cooking spree this weekendJ
Now back to today’s recipe.. Lemon Grass and Ginger drink
If you are a Thai cuisine admirer like me you sure must have tried this refreshing drink!
I must say this cooling and refreshing drink is the perfect accompaniment to the hot Thai foodJ
You can try the hot version and it’s an excellent remedy for Cold and flu.

  18. My dear Remya....my search for mango ginger brought me to your pages. Wonderful to meet you here in this blog world where i am also a family member to you. A tests and medical report was a phase in life which has passed .There was collective prayer moments which was done and God did answered you . will try out your lemon grass drink..... and we tried Thai food since we are the ardent loves of original chines food, yet we didn't relish the Thai food. Again wonderful to meet you and greet you in the blog world.
