I had conveniently ignored the festival last year – I lounged in sweats while my fiance was at work.
But this year, I was super determined to become ( at least for one day) the traditional woman – I was going to make the entire feast on my own. To ensure I decided to invite some people over. I counted the plates and bowls and decided I couldn’t invite more than 2 people without incurring unnecessary capital expenditure.
A lot of menu planning and internet research later I mailed my rough draft to my mom – who promptly rewrote it for me!
