    I'm so sad that I didn't find your blog until halfway through this – hopefully you can start a new one again soon!

    What a great announcement! Congratulations girl, that is truly awesome.

    I wanted to ask you something, being the Indian diva that you are. I have only had Indian once, but I really enjoyed it. I just picked up a few Indian quick fix meals at the store but was wondering if you had ever tried to make these types of dishes at home?

    I bought a make your own version of Spinach Dal and Eggplant Bugha (sorry if that's not the right word, I'm drawing a blank) I also picked up the kashi frozen meal of veggie chan masala. Have you by chance had this?

    I'm very excited to try these, but I wanted to see if I could get someones opinion first before I ruin my liking for Indian food!

    Thanks so much hun!

    Awesome workout! And congrats on 105 Degrees. That is so exciting! I hope to someday have the time to do some culinary classes.

    I, for one, cannot wait to read all about culinary school! That is something I would loooove to do someday, but since the next 6 years of my life have already been sold in exchange for an education, I just don't have time. I can't wait to live vicariously through you…hope you can share a few recipe secrets!
