 For Friday 56:  
No matter how early I get up,  my mother is always up before me. She sits in the kitchen with her legs on a bench drinking milky tea. She dips Brittanica tea biscuits in the warm drink and enjoys the soggy snack.- p. 56

About My Mother's Kitchen: A novel with recipes by Meera Ekkanath KleinAn enchanting place filled with promise, change and good food. If the weathered walls of this magical room could talk they would tell the story of Meena and her childhood life. Each chapter is a slice in her young life and depicts her spunk and youthful spirit. A visit to the local Fruit and Flower Show becomes an adventure as told by Meena. Her distress at finding out about her aunt's dark secret or her joy of making a new friend are all told in her naive, yet pure voice. Her mother is a central character in her life and it is no wonder that the kitchen is a special place of healing and rejuvenation, not only for Meena but for other characters like Kashi and Ayah.
