India, India everywhere!!

Indian Cooking - I...I'll take it! It was a very interesting class. Sumitra, the chef, is from South India where the people are mostly vegetarian. She taught us how to make ghee rice, a curry dish, a salad and a sweetened rice dessert. It was all yummy, the smells are fabulous and best of all, all the recipes seem fairly easy to prepare. I love listening to Sumitra's voice and hearing her tell about India.

We rented Born into Brothels. This story is so moving and reminded us that every place has areas that are not so nice. The children in the film were beautiful and each of their stories was a song of hope.

Two Time magazines have featured stories on India and its thriving economy and technological advancements. Very interesting stuff.

We join Mark, Beth, Connor and Malini for an Indian buffet at a new restaurant. The kids love Mango Lassi drinks. Pat loves the Naan bread. I love it all!
