こんばんは！How’s it going?
Tonight, Mariko and her friend Kumiko cooked a delicious Indian meal of Chicken Tikka Masala, Saag Paneer, and Naan. 🍴 It was completely homemade, with fresh ingredients brought home from the Indian market, and everything tasted so much better than the store-bought versions. Thankfully, they made so much that we’ll be able to enjoy it for a couple more nights. 😄
I’m very happy that our kids like to eat all kinds of different foods, even spicy types. Life is a lot more interesting if you have a willingness to try new things, isn’t it? It’s good to be adventurous!
Speaking of being adventurous, I’m happy that Bay has an interest in traveling ✈️, just like I did at his age. And I am thankful that my parents also like to travel… my dad took me to Paris 🇫🇷 when I was young, and they even let my brothers and I travel to London 🇬🇧 on our own. How fortunate that my mom worked for a major airline… that had a big influence on my family!
Looking back now, those early travels had a big affect on the way I live my life now. And of course when I traveled to Tokyo with them, that REALLY changed my life… I wouldn’t have moved to Japan 🇯🇵 and then gotten married to my wife if it weren’t for that trip! So I guess I am a bit biased in that I encourage people to travel.
Of course a huge part of traveling is sampling the local cuisine. That is one of the highlights of any trip we go on. And it doesn’t have to be fancy… I think it’s important that the food is local and authentic. Besides being delicious, the local hangouts are usually inexpensive as well. Win-win!
Well, today’s post was a bit of a ramble, but oh well, that’s me. 😆 I hope you had a nice Tuesday!
