Pongal O’ Pongal


So it’s that time of year, the Tamil harvest festival, a lot like Thanksgiving. Essentially, it is a time where the family comes together to celebrate Mother Nature for all that is given and appreciate the hard work that work with harvest do all year around to enable us to eat delicious food. 2017 was made even more special as we had our little man with us to celebrate and we got back in time to spend it at home with loved ones.

The main part of the celebration at home is boiling the milk til it overflows and then adding the rice, which traditionally the men of the household do, in our case we got the little man to do the first rice! It was cute but too difficult to grab a good picture, babies just move too quickly!
