So I immediately tell him the location. I normally store all dry nuts in the freezer to prevent them from getting rancid.
Next I hear him heat up something in the microwave and that is when I stood up to check what he was up to :) He said, "I am making dryfruit milkshake" I was impressed and I had this broad smile on my face...wow...for a change he was doing everything by himself!!! And I see a bowl full of dryfruits and nuts soaking in a bowl of milk.
So our dessert was a delicious glass of dryfruit milkshake which brought back all the memories from India.
The idea of soaking dryfruits and nuts was great. That made the milkshake more delicious and flavorful!
