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!

  1. A Holiday is for resting indeed! Work schmwork!

    I am such a chicken! A faux chicken. I am scared of Indian food because of some kind of yucky whatever I ate once. But all the Indian foods you awesome blog masters make look so good! Good gravy, Marie! 🙂

  2. It’s been so long since I’ve had Indian food and your cover of Jessy’s tomato-potato-chickpea curry makes me want to bake up some naan or chapati and dip/dunk/soak up every single morsel. Nicely done!

  3. Hey You! All the love and grooviness is well deserved! That curry looks delish! I have a curry post in my cue.. but I cheated and used Trader Joe’s Curry Simmer Sauce… nom Nom NOM!!! Anyways… a pleasure as always….

    p.s. is that how you spell segue?? I learn new things from you everyday! hahaa…

  4. Great looking curry! I’m glad you made the most of your (and Guppy’s) vacation time. I’ve got to go check out the naan recipe, I haven’t tackled any homemade Indian breads yet.

  5. It’s good to give yourself a little vacation now and then. YOU are such an inspirational blogger! Just now you’ve inspired me to finally try my hand at making my own Naan.

  6. I love Indian night! I want to eat any and all Indian dishes–this looks so good! And we out here are thankful for you, too, Ms. Shellyfish–the blogging world would not be the same without you! 🙂

  7. You are a brave woman giving up baking for Lent. I used to be a practicing Catholic and I always gave up soda (which I no longer drink anyway!).

    But isn’t Jessy awesome?! I’m making one of her Indian dishes tonight, too!

  8. Curry and naan, curry and naan, curry and naan!!!!!! You rule too, Shel! Your posts always raise my spirits (and I often need that). Annnnd, I am so happy you received my package! It managed to arrive much faster than I thought! Enjoy!
