Tonight's dinner was inspired by the lobster roll @david.a.robinson had at @cortezraleigh last night. We made shrimp rolls with fennel, red onion, and Italian parsley. The secret ingredient was Fox Point seasoning from #penzeysspices. #dinner #shrimproll #homecooking

I made #ossobuco for the first time tonight. We got it at the wonderful @leftbankbutchery in #Saxapahaw. Delicious early fall dinner on the porch!

Sometimes we find beauty when we are stuck between a rock and a hard place. #northcarolina #mountains #blueridgeparkway

This photo sits in the entry hall of my home. I literally look at it everyday and think of my heritage and my history, both bridging miles and continents and cultures. This picture was taken before we immigrated to the United States from India. Made in India, grown in America. 100% both Indian and American. #tbt #immigrantsmakeamericagreat #america #india #family

Mother Nature is both beauty and beast. #nofilter #northcarolina #mountains @visitnc @blowingrocknc

Digging in. In other news, my son is trying to kill me with dessert. #kidsinthekitchen

Been gone all weekend and came home to jiggly marshmallows. My 12-year old son made s'mores dip with peanut butter cups instead of chocolate. #kidsinthekitchen #dessert

Today my job brought me to Historic Riverside Cemetery in Asheville, NC. It was moving to see the gravesite of Lillian Exum Clement Stafford, the first woman elected to the North Carolina General Assembly and the first woman to serve in any state legislature in the Southern United States.

She earned one of the highest scores on the bar exam among 70 students and became a criminal lawyer, the first female attorney in North Carolina without male partners. At age 26, she ran for a seat in the North Carolina House of Representatives and beat two male opponents in the primary election, shortly before the 19th Amendment passed. "Lillian's List," an NC Democratic fundraising group, is named in her honor.
Lillian was one badass woman.

Mirror selfie with a view. The NC mountains are majestic. #northcarolina #mountains @visitasheville

We had a great time at the @activategood rescheduled 9/11 day of service event tonight. The boys and I decorated care packages for first responders and made seed balls that look like truffles or poop, depending on your level of maturity. One guess what we all thought... #volunteer #volunteerwithkids #family
