Just a couple pics of my birthday feast! I worked in the afternoon. I had done extra work over the weekend so I could take the morning off to do my ride. My work has been stressful as of late, but times like this I do so appreciate the flexibility of my job.
I worked up quite an appetite with a 45 mile ride and was ready to eat. Actually, I didn’t feel that hungry before getting there, but that is typical after a longer ride. Once I start to eat – then my appetite roars to life again.
Here I am all neat and tidy!
We went to Little India in Saratoga. It’s a good thing this place isn’t closer to home because I would be eating here all the time. I lurve Indian food! I didn’t try it until 7 or 8 years ago and I had absolutely no idea what I was missing. It’s definitely my favorite cuisine.
We each started with a cup of chai. Mine was unsweetened.
Then the eats!
We had peshwari naan, which had raisins, coconut and chopped pistachios in it. So, so good.
John and shrimp curry and I had the vegetable kofta.
These are dumpling made up of finely chopped veggies and nuts, I think. They are light and fluffy. It’s really the sauce though. I could just spoon this on anything and eat it. I have to try to make this at home.
Then we stopped by Bettie’s for a selection of cupcakes to bring home. We had some family over for cuppies and coffee.
Mine was the lavender cupcake bottom left!
A couple gifts I received – a cover for my Kindle!
I had been carrying the Kindle around in the box it came in for protection since I got it last year.
Plus I got this book, which I have been coveting on since Cammy talked about it.
Squee!!! Now to modify for home.
