Wow, that sounds great :-)

Thank you. I think he enjoyed his birthday. I was going to bake him an apple tarte, but my wrist is inflamed, so I told him that I owe him one.

We had onion bhajis, chicken masaledar, and what they called "lamb shish kabob". The lamb was seasoned, minced lamb cooked on a skewer and served with onions. I think the onion slices were grilled too. It's a fairly new restaurant and they don't have everything they serve on the menu. We described the lamb dish, since we had really liked it the first time we went there. We were going to have a chili pakora as an appetizer, but they were out of jalapenos, so I asked if they had onion bhajis (not on the menu) and was told yes.

They aren't licensed to sell booze, but are licensed for "bring your own wine or beer". We brought Heineken. I'm not a big beer drinker, but I think it goes better with Indian food than wine does.

Your dishes sound lovely, we too like to have a chicken dish and a lamb dish and we share

Yes, I feel the same, beer goes very well with this type of cuisine

Pleased you both had a nice evening out

I'm running some errands. I think I just finished my Thanksgiving shopping. Also got my knives professionally sharpened. Bring on the chopping!

I'm defrosting the freezer in the basement. It was long overdue. I hate that it takes so long.

I've been putting it off for some time too. I usually pack as much food as I can into the freezer over the fridge and into coolers we have. Then I put pots of boiling water on each shelf and close the door. In about 20 minutes all the frost is water. Our freezer has a drain in the bottom which I ran to the sump hole. Relatively easy.
