I am forever grateful for Sana and her passion for her culture…ok, maybe just the food for right now.
I was invited to celebrate Sana’s 22nd Birthday with her and some friends. We headed downtown to Baltimore to an Indian restaurant called Akbar and just had a smashingly good time. The food was absolutely excellent and I can tell you from the moment I smelled our dinner I knew I’d be dealing with an Indian food baby later that night. Make that triplets, actually. I don’t regret a thing, a one night stand with Indian food, Sana and amazing people was so worth it.
Kate was able to join us as well, she’s such a beautiful lady! Beautiful people all around. I’ll let the pictures do the talking.
I decided on the Chicken Tikka! “Tender boneless chicken tikka pieces cooked with spices in butter sauce.” from the menu. It was absolutely delicious and I wish I knew what “spices” they were so I could recreate it. Everyone meal looked worthy for recreation and a messy kitchen. I can only imagine how good my house would smell if I could cook like that.
We oh-so-sneakily (is that a word? It is now) told our waitress that it was her Birthday and she had just the right idea. Pistachio ice cream with fried dough balls. Who needs Birthday cake?!
By far the most enjoyable thing about blogging is getting together with other bloggers and friends who share the same characteristics and passions that you do, but are also so different and unique. I am so blessed to have Sana in my life – and if you haven’t already, go wish her a (belated) 22nd Birthday!
