Diwali is around the corner. It’s an exciting time of year and I am already in the midst of decorating the house. I am planning on putting festive lights outside of the house. Then I will do some Rangoli designs on the front porch, also incorporating some fresh flowers. Of course I will decorate the house with some flameless candles as well. My granddaughters love helping me decorate for Diwali. I also like to incorporate games during Diwali. This year, I plan on creating a treasure hunt for the kids (similar to an Easter Egg Hunt). This is always a hit with the grandchildren, even my 12 year old granddaughter!

Most important in preparing for Diwali, is the FOOD! I believe food truly brings the family and loved ones together. I love making easy home-cooked snacks as Diwali gifts. I think its a thoughtful and heartfelt gift. Some of my ideas for snacks are Spicy Cashews, Nan Khatai, Til Ki Burfi, and Almond Brittle

This year I am planning two Diwali dinners. One dinner will be an intimate dinner with just family. The following day I am hosting another dinner with just friends. I have not finalized the menu yet. However, I am planning to make some sweets in advance. This will ease my work load and stress levels as Diwali approaches! My must-have sweets for Diwali include Gujias, Gulab Jamun and Chocolate Sandesh. I think this variety of desserts will please everyone.

I plan to finalize my Diwali dinner menu very soon and will keep you updated!
