Happy Birthday Geminis! This is the first post in the Birthday Month Menu Series. It all kicks off with my birthday over Memorial Day Weekend! Woo Hoo!
This year is a bittersweet. My Hubs, Kevin is overseas and my daughter Ella and I moved in to my parents house on Lake Anna to hunker down during the Pandemic. I hope everyone who is celebrating a birthday during these times is able to find some joy.
I know I did even though I was missing some of my favorite people (I miss you Kevin, I miss you Lucy, the extended Mescher clan, and the Shore and Ellis Families). Most of that joy came in the form of a lovely boating swimming experience and a wonderful almost take out curry dinner.
One of the things I have been missing the most during the Covid-19 Pandemic is eating out. If we had been able to go to a restaurant I would have chosen Preet Palace in Centreville, VA. It is one of my favorite Indian Restaurants. And if I had been at Preet Palace I would have ordered Saag Paneer and Chicken Tikka Masala, and an order of Gulab Jamun for dessert. But alas we were stuck at home. So instead I made Saag Paneer and Chicken Tikka Masala at home! I wasn’t up to making the Gulab Jamun this time. But I did want some ice cream and a creamy drink! Then in the evening with the Indian spices still permeating my kitchen, a lovely chai latte was was the perfect way to wind down in the evening and watch the light show over the lake!
So the At-home Indian Take-away Menu Consists of:
- Saag Paneer (adapted from 40 aprons)
- Chicken Tikka Masala (from 40 aprons)
- Homemade Paleo Naan Bread
- Mango Lassi
- Cherry Nice Cream
- Dairy-Free Caffiene-Free Chai Latte
I hope you enjoy this menu. I know I did!
