Monsoon Wedding {Food 'n Flix: I'm hosting this month!}

Food 'n Flix July '13 pick: Monsoon Wedding (I'm hosting!) |
I'm so excited to be hosting Food 'n Flix right here at this month with my chosen flick: Monsoon Wedding!  Now, I should be a good hostess and tell you what this film is about (in case you haven't seen it before).  However, I myself have not watched it in YEARS.  Even though I actually own it.  Oi.  It's tucked safely away in a drawer with a bunch of other movies that I adore, but haven't had the time to revisit as of late.  So, I don't really remember much beyond I liked it enough to buy myself a copy.

In its most basic form, it is a story of family, love, arranged marriages, forbidden love, India, Punjabis in Texas...chock-full of rich, glorious colors and dancing and I swear I remember some food in there somewhere.  At least I know it stirred a craving for some good Indian food somewhere inside of me.    Maybe I was just smitten with the Monsoon.  I love rain.  I am a water sign.

But even if food is not the main theme, I know there will be so many beautifully inspired dishes that come from watching this film.  I mean, a wedding, India, Texas...those hints right there are enough to start the wheels turning, are they not!?  So please, join us!
