around the world in okc

Matt took me to eat at Gopuram Taste of India tonight… we were mostly interested in their vegan menu choices.  They have a buffet, but we both ordered off the menu.  This was a little scary considering we had no idea what we would be eating.  There were brief descriptions, but nothing could prepare me for my food!  It was HOT!  The waiter asked if I wanted it spicy and I said, “sure.”  My sinuses are officially clear.  It was good and the indian bread was so good and cut the heat.  I had Malai kofta.  Which was vegetable dumplings cooked in a mild cream & almond sauce with rice.  The sauce was not mild at all though.  It was curry with red pepper and masala.  Matt helped me eat it while we waited for his weird order to come.  He was interested in a carrot pudding and LOVED it!  I had gulab junum.  It was pastry balls in warm sugar sauce.  Not at all what I expected.  It was like donut soup or something, but pretty good.  Next time we will probably try the buffet so we can try more things.

We waited for a what seemed like forever while they cooked our food…

There were interestng decorations there…

After we finished dinner we stopped at the Asian supermarket to get some different varieties of mushrooms.  I got a huge can of wasabi peas (yum!)… I was stuffed from the spicy Indian food and the awful fish smell at the asian market almost sent me over the edge 🙂 !

Then to Baskin Robbins for a special ice cream cake for Izzy’s birthday tomorrow!  I know she’ll love it.

Matt got me pretty red roses today.  I put half on my nightstand, and the other half in the pretty blue glass pitcher mom brought to me from her trip last week.

Emelia had another sewing class today at the artz place.  She made a doll thing (?) and an apron.  She is sewing up a storm now… Bailey went to a birthday party today at the skating rink for a girl from school.  Amanda just worked all day, the chapel had two weddings.  I’m off to find free insurance quotes.

    I’ve never sampled Indian food. I’m just not that brave. I have, however, sampled Baskin Robbins….and would do so again, any day of the week. lol
