Three Idiots

Three Idiots

I had never heard of the movie the Three Idiots before.  Our friend Nita told us about the movie and that she has it on DVD.  So, we invited Nita for dinner and watched the Three Idiots.

It is a lengthy movie that has some interesting messages about education.  I won’t spoil the plot, but it also is an eye opener to the Indian culture regarding education.  It now makes sense why so many Indians immigrate to the U.S.A. to go to school and work.

It also made me realize how inspired the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints’ Perpetual Education Fund is. The idea is to provide people in under-developed countries funds for education, but they must return to their country to work.  Thus, it betters their country.  That was one of the complaints brought out in the Three Idiots – people from India get an education and leave India.

Food Storage

Two nights in a row now we prepared food storage meals for our guests.  There is something satisfying about making a meal from food storage and having it taste good.

I made a bread pudding that was the hit of the evening.  I plan to make this again… and again… and again.  I’ll put it in the Cooking with Brent section.
