Since Randy was coming for dinner, I indulged in making a sinful dessert tonight. Payasam/coconut milk kheer, in my instant pot. Recipe below.
I didn’t think I could put together a sumptuous meal for us on a weeknight. But when it comes to cooking for some of your favorite people – there is no stress, and just a lot of warmth and love.
He met Tara for the first time today. I hope Tara gets an opportunity to work for bosses like Randy in her career. A good manager can make a huge difference. I have not found a more competent consultant than him thus far. And even though our stint was short, surprisingly we keep running into each other. And every time I meet him, I learn something new, we eat home made curry, and talk about all sorts of things – CPQ, millennials, Trump, Pakistan, cricket, and travels. It is always easy to strike a memorable conversation with Randy.
