Sticky Lemony Prawns

I want to write so much.. but feeling so tired and irritated right now. I want to have a good sleep and the thought that I don;t have to rush again just after opening my eyes. My hands are sore and my backaches are roaring high....and the only thing that is keeping my standing is the evening out to an ice cream parlor.:)

I want to sleep...but before that wanted to post this beautiful lemony sticky prawns that I cooked some days ago to go with my steaming hot noodles. Its tangy, its spicy and it is so soooo Chinese. What more do you need on a rainy day...if you can simply get hold of a steaming bowl of chicken noodles and a Chinese side dish?? I say...none!! Just look at that beautiful food sight...and enjoy the vapor and wait for the foodie dive into the Chinese delicacy waiting just for you!!!!

My husband is a complete bheto bangali. He can not stand the sight of other cuisine in his main meals. But that is okay..he stands far below the benchmark of being a foodie. As he said, he eats to live....and for me he is literally from Mars or any other planet you can think of!! So if you love Chinese think none...and gobble up!!
