Then I watched Julie and Julia. Needless to say, it inspired me. (Ofcourse, it reminded me of my days as a passionate blogger :) )
I decided to embark on a similar project.
But wait! Which one? Being in the round-is-a-shape category of the human race, a cook-and-nom project would effectively contribute to my ever-expanding waistline, which given my mother's anxiety levels about my big-fat(literally!)-desi-wedding, was not such an appealing idea after all. Plus, on my university-student-no-job-huge-family-more-birthdays budget, the idea flat out laughed me in the face!
And then it dawned upon me- what is it I realllllllly want? (Not Chicago Uno Grill's rattlesnake pasta, we're talking long-term!) I want to be skinny. And most of all, to quit being the deer caught in headlights among desi-aunty-gossip circles!
And that, dear bloggers, gave rise to *DRUMROLL*
OPERATION: Dislodge Waistline
Stay tuned :)
