Shraddha got up late this morning (unusual for a Monday). I entered the kitchen and made vegetable upma with gusto. The smoke alarm didn’t go off. The upma tasted fine.
Nothing like starting the week off on a successful high note of awesomeness and productivity, right?
When I was done making it, Shraddha came in and took a look at my efforts. She took a minute or so, and then asked, “What is this?”

On a related note, if you’re offered chai at a Gujju family home, sip it, nod and say “Wagh Bakri, right?” It will help you score points and connect with your hosts on a deeply personal level.

YES!+ is happening this week in Austin. The week will continue on a high note of awesomeness!
PS: She just tasted the upma and said “Hmm… pretty good!”
