Hi!  As you all know, I’m blogging from Atlanta right now!  I got in around 11:30 last night, and yes, I did attack Vishnu when I saw him. 🙂  I worked from home today, but it was still nice to have everyone around while I audited away.  I miss being home!

Lunch was delicious, as expected.  We all got very very hungry around 1:30, so my mom, with her quick thinking, decided to make us samosa chaat.  If you don’t remember what chaat is, read this post.  It’s all the same ingredients but with samosas as the base.  We didn’t have any homemade samosas in the house, so we used frozen ones, which were surprising pretty good.  You can easily find these in an Indian grocery store.

Cooking away...

All you do to turn regular samosas into samosa chaat, is add some sweet and spicy chutneys (sauces), a yogurt sauce, onions, and sev (a thin, stringy, crispy Indian snack food).  Take a look!

After lunch, I made everyone try this…

The Pecan Pie Larabar does not disappoint!

Everyone agreed that is flavor is a keeper.  However, the PB Chocolate Chip one is still my favorite!

Since I worked until about 5:30 today, we didn’t do too much during the day.  This is probably a good thing because tomorrow is a packed day – threading (hair removal done with a thread – don’t worry I’ll explain later!), pedicure, dentist, dermatologist, and taxes.  I’m tired just thinking of it all! 

My parents don’t really like eating out too much, but Indian and Thai are exceptions to the rule.  Tonight was Thai night.  🙂  We headed to one of my favorite Atlanta restaurants – Top Spice.  This place is Thai heaven – the food is that good! 

Spicy Basil Tofu for me and my mom!
Pad Prik Chicken for sister and dad!
A family affair 🙂

So, remember how I told you that no visit home would be complete without a Bollywood movie night?  Well, tonight is one of those nights.  We’re watching Band Baaja Barat, a movie about two wedding planners who decide to become partners and create their own company together.


Before I sign out for the night, here’s a cute knock knock joke Vishnu heard on TV today…

Knock, knock
Who’s there?
Olive who?
Olive you, babe!

Awww 🙂
