Wishing you all a Happy Pongal
Work has been so crazy that by Friday evening we just want to come and crash and recharge our batteries. Yet to figure out how 2010 suddenly started off in this mode.
Friday evening came and it was time to make Pongal. This year there was no prayer, no dressing up.. just daddy making Sweet Pongal in his office clothes!
Yes. It was an odd sight to see daddy in formal clothes in front of the stove. To compensate for all the stress, just threw in an extra cup of ghee into the mix and the results were more than satisfactory!
Wanted to videoblog the making of Pongal but that has to wait for another day. Today we went to the Livermore temple, saw Aandal Kalyanam and were served a wedding feast at the temple. There was standing room only in that temple and the little one thought she had been transported to Mylapore for a few minutes. She was even heard whispering that she wanted to be back in the USA..
One would think that with this kind of stuff at home, the kids would be happy to eat Pongal for a late snack? .. the answer is ...
They wanted Mac and Cheese from the local Target store for dinner.
Well we just think the family has celebrated Makara sankaraanthi and Macand cheesearaanthi in the same day!
Happy Pongal again to all of you.
