March 27, 2011

Janet hosted all of us this month for an Indian themed dinner. It was a great idea to introduce all of us to some new recipes and spices. Tonya provided an appetizer of Samosas and Crispy Spinach Pakoras, served with Cilantro Yogurt Dip and a tamarind/date sauce purchased at an Indo-Pak grocery. Carol's daughter Jennifer was visiting from Korea this month, so she and Carol both prepared a Marinated Cheese-Topped Salad, along with some crostini with herbed cheese spread. Janet's main course was Chicken Tikka Masala, along with Aloo Gobi (Cauliflower and Potatoes). Janet's friend Davi joined us for the evening and prepared jasmine rice to compliment the meal. The kitchen smelled amazing as everything was being prepared. Our dessert queen Mary found the perfect recipe to complete our meal: Goodnight Rose Cupcakes (Pistachio Cardamom Cupcakes with Rosewater Meringue Buttercream Frosting). It was a fitting end to a delicious dinner.

Next month we are looking forward to an Easter dinner at Carol's home.
