"I'm sick of Diwali"

Oh heeeeey. 

It has come to my attention that some people miss my blog. I miss my blog, too. So, I'm back.

We're just going to pretend I didn't disappear for a while, ok? The idea of three months worth of retrospective blog posts is too stressful. Instead, here are some highlights. During the last three months, I:
  • Went to the Taj Mahal (looks like all the pictures);
  • Experienced the Indian rail system (possibly as a stowaway – it’s unclear);
  • Held Thanksgiving for nearly 20 people and cooked my first turkey (I'm a grown up!);
  • Got a visa extension (thank god);
  • Went to several weddings (so much glamour, so much fun!);
  • Finally made food my coworkers liked (Christmas cookies. Genius.);
  • Went to Mumbai (love. it.);
  • Got a visit from one of my best friends (and now she’s gone and I’m sad);
  • Hired a cook (best decision I have ever made); and
  • Met a boy (right around Diwali. Correlation with my absence? Yes.)

From the first wedding I went to, with the boy :-) 

Thanksgiving! Turkey covered in butter for extra crispiness - moderately successful technique. 

Christmas cookies (with vanilla extract and Hershey's kisses flown in from the US)
