India

Photobucket

We got together with our friends, Stephanie & Juan, for our monthly ethnic meal and it was my turn to cook. We started this about a year ago and it's been so much fun. We pick a country and if it's your turn to cook, you make it start to finish from scratch. It was my turn and I made food from India. The children helped me and in the past I've had them look up facts and things about the country we are doing. However, this time I just ran out of time.

Of course, I forgot to take many pictures but I thought I'd share the menu.

It was a feast and I ate too much which is also why I now have acid reflux and why I'm posting at 3:00 a.m. :-)
