Whatever Happened To Sunday Dinners : Indian night!

Things have been a little quiet around here, haven’t they? All is well, I’ve just been a very busy bee, mostly playing catch-up with things I *should* have been working on while on vacation. Since I spent my two weeks playing with Guppy (also on vacation) and crafting, well, my lesson plans needed some emergency attention last week! But I don’t regret it, though. A holiday is for resting, not working after all!

But let’s talk about the deliciousness! This is actually a little pre-Lenten Sunday dinner that I very purposefully scheduled before giving up baking. Two of my favourite bloggers, Jessy and Gail had me longing for some Indian cuisine, and I knew I had to try Gail’s Naan recipe before turning my back on all that is bake-able!

Good gravy, Marie! (I don’t actually know who Marie is. My mum used to say this when we were little and I think it’s funny.) These naan were out of this world, and so easy to prepare. They were really delicious, and I know I’ll be making them again once my Lenten baking fast has ended.

The most tragic thing about them is that I don’t have a picture to show you! I recently lost a folder o’ photos, much to my chagrin, but that’s the rock and roll life of a food blogger! But frustrating. Don’t despair, Gail has some scrummy pictures on her blog, so just go see hers!

Feeling like some Indian curry fantasticalness? Do try Jessy’s Chickpea-potato-tomato curry of deliciousness that is so amazing my mouth is actually watering just thinking about it! The name pretty much says it all, and it’s all good. I love recipes that call for things I have on hand, in addition to being healthy and tasty!


I made another Jessy-inspired meal last night, too, which I will be blabbing about soon. Jessy!!! What would I do without you and your recipe index of sublime awesomeness!?

And with no segue at all, I just want to take a little moment and say thank you : thanks for your comments which bring me so much joy and insight, and thank you for your little messages of love and groovy-ness. I’m so thankful for this blogging community and all its brought me! You rule!
