Food Cravings

First few weeks in US -
when you are just settling down and friends give you what they cook-anything in the name of food is good. Friends are god sent.

Next few weeks -
self cooking- Wow, I cook well and the food is yum.

The weeks thereafter -
same rice sambar and vetha kuzhambu, lets try out different cusines..Mexican, Italian..etc.Taco bell is heaven.

After some tryst with multi cusine eat outs -
Oh, nothing like Indian food. Let me hit the Indian restaurant here.

After lot of naans, chaat items, panneer butter masala, gobi manchurian at the local Indian Restaurant -
homely saappadu is what I am craving for.

After some mental picturisation of home made dosai, idli, pongal -
call up mom / MIL and ask them when are they coming here?

I so hear you hon!I have the same feeling inspite of being in India , but far from home. I undrestand how it must be when you are in Uncle Sam's.But you know what you are a good cook yourself and your hubby seems to be doning the chef role too.

It is same with the case of people in India who are not in Tamil nadu or not with their family :-) I can understand the feeling :-)

You hit the nail.Nothing like homely food. This post speaks volumes for bachelors, grad students here.South Indian food anytime, anywhere.
