Today is Home and Garden Thursday on Kathy's beautiful blog A Delightsome Life. (Click the blue name and it will take you to her blog, just like a magic carpet ride!)
Happy Home and Garden Thursday to all!
Can I cheat? Rather than do a post about something I've cooked, this one will include some descriptions and photos of various ethnic dishes we ate in restaurants.
That would still qualify for a cooking post, right? After all, somebody had to cook those dinners!
But be forewarned: If you are hungry, this post will be a KILLER!
These are shots from some meals we had while on vacation in Denver, Colorado, late last fall. I've been saving them for just such an occasion as this!
Now you'll see lots of salads because when we eat out, salad is a given. (Plus, it makes me feel less guilty to have the main entree if I eat salad. ha!)
The delectable salad, shown above, had chunks of yummy blue cheese. Mmm mmm
In the same restaurant, they served warm corn bread.
This next plate wasn't exactly a full meal, but it was the main offering of a Victorian Tea at the Molly Brown House. If you missed a post on our visit there and are interested, you can read about it here: http://writingstraightfromtheheart.blogspot.com/2011/12/come-for-tea-at-unsinkable-molly-brown.html
This was a plain but delicious salad in a Lebanese restaurant.
This hummus appetizer came with triangles of pita bread.
These spicy shish-kabobs on rice tasted fab.
Since we were in Colorado for Thanksgiving, we were very grateful for this delicious homemade turkey dinner!
Some people dislike food from India and others love it. We are in the "love it" category. It's not all so hot that it burns your mouth. Far from it.
Indian food has a fabulous mix of flavors, thanks to the spices Indian cooks use. The creamed spinach dish is divine.
Rice, beans, MORE SALAD, and a cheesy enchalada followed. It was enough to make anybody yell, "Get the doggie bag, QUICKLY."
