I have been very bad this year. Also, I know Santa put me on his Naughty list in early Jan.
It is ok. I don’t really mind.
Because, look what my friend Jyotsna Rao brought over. The world’s best sweet potato casserole. Yum!! Thanks J!
I hope y’all are winding down the year and getting ready for Christmas.
Happy Karthigai Deepam!
Every Karthigai Deepam the person I miss the most is my mother-in-law Girija. She made the world’s best Adai and paniyaram to celebrate Karthigai Deepam.
The boy and I lit lamps around the house and made adai with lots of coconut pieces. It is my way of paying homage to my mother-in-law Girija.
We all need at least one friend to make us soup/rasam when we are sick.
What if you are lucky enough to have both mushroom soup and sukku (dried ginger) milagu (black pepper) thippili (long pepper) rasam within a couple of days from 2 different friends? In my dictionary, that is kind of like winning 2 mega lotteries within a couple of days.
Thanks Chandreka Kaushik and Rohit Dhamankar. Perhaps, I should pull of the “cold” act a few more days.

Reality: The ONLY way to weasel your way into a girl’s heart is through an awesome salad…especially when she comes home hungry.
