Hadley and I make a huge Indian Dinner

Yesterday Hadley and I decided to try our hand at making an authentic Indian dinner. Even though Hadley's Mom was born in India she was mostly raised on western food so both her and I really didn't have a clue what we were doing. However I kept telling her that if was a hit it would be all her glory.

Here we're making something called saga (need to check the spelling of that), in the top dish with spinach, tofu, crushed tomatoes and lots of chilies. In the bottom pan it's butter chicken that was so incredible right for spices, which I think is really hard to do.

I was so in love with the butter chicken sauce I had to eat it right out of the pan.

Here Hadley is making Naan bread from scratch and I thought it was funny because even her calf muscles were getting a work out.

Here's the buffet, we had so much food, Tom was really excited too.

Voila, I even made fresh Mango lassie and served it in Margarita glasses!

After we ate I was so tired from all the work and of coarse drinking ciders, I was completely passed out by 11' o'clock. Next time we're trying Thai food, however no drinking ciders before you done, I found by the time I started drinking my second my sense of timing was completely off and I had to focus really hard not to let anything burn.
