It's Good To Be The Judge

Hi wonderful people, I hope you had a great weekend. The highlight of mine was my aunt Rehana hosting a biryani-a-thon at her home. Biryani is a South Asian dish of rice, potatoes, with a meats of your choice, or vegetables of your choice, spices, served with yogurt, and it's a favourite in my family. So Rehana Khala (which is Urdu for 'mother's sister') hosted our large extended family. 

We had four entries - my mom actually made two biryanis, but since all the other entries were vegetarain, her chicken version was not permitted to be a part of the competition. Those family members who did not/cannot cook (ahem...yours truly) were the judges for a blind taste test. My mom got the first place with her spectacular vegetarian entry. But my cousins and their boyfriends all did great jobs too. Congratulations to all the participants, but I think we all know the REAL winners were the judges who got to eat to their heart's content and had to contribute little to nothing to the buffet. It's good to be the judge.

Judgy-wudgy was a bear.
Thank you for visiting.
