We love ethnic food. Even Little Dude gets excited when he smells something other than burgers. Okay, he gets excited for onions, so he probably isn’t the best judge. Anyways, now that we live in a city with real restaurants and tons of options that don’t hurt your digestive system. Sorry Helena, but that sushi place on the west side of town terrifies me and I regret ever having eaten there. And I won’t even begin on what L&D does to a person. *twitch*
Yesterday was Christmas Eve and while a lot of places, like grocery stores, closed early, a lot of restaurants were open. I went to a very nice Christmas Eve service that was similar but nothing like the one I grew up attending. There was still a candle lighting and we all sang Silent Night and I kept true to form at keeping my candle burning until everyone else had blown theirs out. Anyways, upon arriving home The Hubs decided he was super hungry and wanted to go hunting for food… at 9:30 pm. So off we went. Lo and behold, one of our favorite Indian Food places was open. So we grabbed what we could from the buffet and ran home to eat it. Little Dude was thrilled until he realized he wouldn’t get any.
*Note: If a buffet location says, “Here is this container for take out, take what you can,” I WILL pack it to the gills and have food for 3 meals rather than just 1. You don’t charge $17.99 for a buffet and not expect me to go a bit overboard with the packing. I come from a long line of over packers so this is the same kind of game — here is your case, now fill it to the gills.
I’m having leftovers for lunch and for dinner we’re making Chicken Tikka Masala. Depriving us of good Indian Food for almost 6 years has left a hole in our souls and we’re filling it with tasty goodness.
