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!)

Indian food by the coast…..not sure what could be better.

Baigan Bharta:



Indian soap operas:


I felt so pensive.

Hahahaha 😉
Night y’all!

    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.

    Ohhh Indian food, how I love you! Baingan Bharta is absolutely amazing is it not? Don’t think I’ve ever eaten Indian food in a setting like that though – normally a little cave-like place in england with crazy carpet/wallpaper/curtains…there’s a charm to both I guess!

    Hey Jenna, I was just wondering..have you ever done a post on the beauty products you use? You have such nice skin and I would love to know what you use to keep it that way. Do you usually wear make-up or no? Your pictures make it seem like you don’t wear any, except for mascara.

    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!

    I like that last picture of you. Very Jane Austin, you just need one of those dresses that looks like a fancy nightgown.

    Now I want Indian food.
