Indian Delights

We had the wonderful pleasure to eat dinner last night at a new Indian Resturaunt in town called "Taste of India".  It was a pure culinary delight!  The lentil dishes were excellent, the Chana masala was sublime, the naan tender and flavorful, the mushroom masala was thick and creamy, and the butter curry chicken was pleasantly spicy but in a smooth fashion.  My favorite dish however was the spinach paneer.  It was much heavier on the spinach and the paneer was light and not overpowering.  It had a beautiful earthiness that enticed my palate.

At dinner, I gave my wife a few additional anniversary gifts.  Two sets o ear rings, one a delicate silver pattern and the other a set of petals.  I also gave her another card with a poem I composed myself written inside.  

I happened across two different machines by two different manufacturers yesterday that would estimate body fat percentages by electro voltaic skin measurement.  Although they are not the greatest way to measure kin terms of accuracy, I figure that the two different readings if reasonably close would be reasonably accurate. One gave me a reading of 12.5% and the other 14%.  According to the material I have read, it puts me just inside the level of athletic fitness for body fat.  That was nice to hear!  So different from when I was close to 300 pounds.  Yesterday, I weighed 169.

I just finished my five miles and am sitting out here on the back porch with a pipe and am watching the do as she goes bout eating breakfast and doing her business.  Next I will head to the U and try to get a whole helluva lot of work done.

Maybe, some day, DH will get us some Indian food, just to try. I've never been to an Indian restaurant. I do watch the cooking shows, but I have no idea what some of the spice flavors even taste like. Your anniversary dinner sounds very interesting!
You have done well with your running!It seems to have helped you in more ways than one.

Congratulations, Professor, you are evidently in rude health! Spinach and paneer make a delicious samosa filling, but I'm not sure whether your restaurant would serve somosas.

LOL, well done! You can send me an email through this account I believe ( click on the name as link to go to the profile), so I can respond with a mailing address. Just have to decide which pipe to use. Possibly my best briar.

Back in the day, going to an Italian restaurant for spaghetti was about as exotic as we could get. We have a many more menus to chose from than we did 60 years ago. And that's something to enjoy and celebrate.
