Sponge roll / Jam roll


“Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock

Jingle bells swing and jingle bells ring
Snowing and blowing up bushels of fun …”

My little blossom and a bunch of other little blossoms were practicing to tap their feet to the rhythm of this music for our Christmas gathering. And I was planning to make some refreshments for them. Something fancy that should make glitter in their eyes and smile on their face!

Jam roll came to my mind spontaneously. May be it is because it was one of the things that excited me when I was a kid. One of my dream foods!If mom went for shopping in Ernakulam without us (my sister and me), it was our right that she should bring us some puffs or jam roll when she came back!

A piece of jam roll and a cup of mango juice … okay kids let’s back to dance again!
