Mom is visiting for Norooz! And so is aunt Karman, and she is throwing a Persian New Year (Norooz) party. Assana is excited to spend the day with the family. Talking of counting your chickens before they hatch: we are not actually invited to the party! Turns out that Aunt Karman doesn't invite Assana in favor of Koohy's wishes. Vatever.
Mom decides to stay at Assana's. She makes all the traditional dishes, and they are absolutely delicious! Chris comes over; we make a fire and turn this rainy dark spring day into a fun cozy afternoon of drinking, eating and fun conversation with great company.
At the end, Aunt Karman gets grumpy Koohy, but we get the chef! Our party wins!
