This weekend was fantastic and full of great surprises!
On Saturday morning we went to get groceries to cook lunch… since I saw Seemant and Amir talking in the living room I asked if we could cook Indian food (since Seemant is from India) and I love food, why not have a homemade Indian dish? Right on!
Our family loves Lamb, (and that was on sale too…even better!) and of course Seemant picked the spices that I never heard of, I also wanted Saag paneer which we are obsessed about. Amir (from Italy joined us) I suggested to him to get some stuff for bruschetta as an appetizer) .
We came home, and the bonanza started… Seemant was the super chef of the day and showed us how he prepares the lamb and Saag paneer….I wouldn’t have thought to cook the way he was directing me to, (super secret, can’t tell). In the meantime Amir was preparing the bruschetta (which I learned how to pronounce in Italian!) and even grandma was chopping the onions to help the feast. I cooked the rice “Brazilian style” (which is not done by the rice cooker); Vu( from Vietnam) prepared a delicous dessert made of beans and coconut cream. A few hours later we all sat around the table and made sure Mr. Jones (was happy eating a homemade Indian dish).
This was a great way of getting everybody together and enjoying a simple pleasure. We shared a meal, a family lunch, and taught each other new recipes. This is Justhomestay experience! Can’t wait to do it again!!!
