Indian Food Monday

Hi guys!

Hope your Monday has gone well. It was pretty darn gorgeous outside and I got out for an hour bike ride, which was lovely. However, I don’t think my lunch properly fueled me for my ride because midway through, I started feeling really light headed and HUNGRY. That’s what I get for eating a small Trader Joe’s salad and an apple for lunch:

Needless to say, I TORE into this glo bar post ride:

I took my work outside for awhile but ended up going inside and taking a 45 minute nap…..oops

And then, it was Indian night! (Gina, you were there in spirit!)

    Aww, your eyes are sparklin’! I’m way jealous of your afternoon snack [Glo Bar]. Someday I will get my hands on some of Angela’s deliciousness.

    I LOVE Indian food. When I lived in Korea, my friends and I would go every Monday night to the best place and order the exact same things every week. It was heaven. 😀

    I love the way the light is hitting the restaurant in all of your amazing dinner pics. Three cheers for natural lighting!

    Indian food is easily one of my all-time favorite cuisines. I’ve been eating it since I was just a kid, thanks to my sister’s in-laws (all traditional Eastern Indian), who love any and all reasons for throwing a party filled with food.

    Yummmmm Yummmmm Again!!
    I wish so much that there were a Trader Joe’s here in FL (or maybe there is but not in Orlando???)

    I feel pensive so often. I usually take self portraits of myself in different moods or “frames of mind” I love to capture those moments in time. I just got a nice camera but I am still learning how to use it. Yours and Kath’s pics always look so beautiful. I fell like my food pics make all of my food look kind of gross! 🙂

    Any suggestions? Did you take classes?

    Indian food is to die for. It’s one of the reasons I studied abroad in the UK! They have the best curry shops there.
    We have great Indian food in Chicago though too. Devon Ave. is Little India, and it is the best!
