Children’s Wish Walk

Last month, the boys went on Children’s Wish Foundation’s Walk For Wishes in loving memory of their little friend’s sister who recently passed away from brain tumour.

Wishmaker Walk for Wishes is The Children’s Wish Foundation’s annual signature event held in hundreds of communities across the country. Thousands of Canadians participate in a fun, family-oriented day with one goal in common: to raise money so that children living with a life threatening illness can be granted their most heartfelt wish.

One of our teachers came up to me afterwards and said that she LOVED my Chana Masala

and would really like to have the recipe…

I hesitated and thought about it long and hard… since it IS, after all, our secret family recipe…..

After great contemplation, I finally gave it to her the next day and thought since I already let the secret out, mind as well share it with all of you, so here goes…….
