“Dinner from Tarka” Cedar Park, 2021

This evening we ordered take-out from one of our favorite “fast-casual” Indian restaurants, Tarka Indian Kitchen. Koa was out with friends for dinner, so it was just for Mariko and I eating at home. Before we started eating, I sent the photo above to him to gloat a bit, and he replied with an unhappy emoji. Later that evening, he said the food looked so good that he and his friends ended up getting food from Tarka later! 😁

Mariko made chicken tikka masala and naan for our dinner tonight. It was super yummy and I ate way too much. Actually, my portion wasn’t too large but I didn’t eat much all day today so my stomach shrunk a bit. That’s my guess.

After dinner I started on my usual 5 km run, but I felt so sluggish that I decided to cut it a bit shorter than usual. That’s okay though… I’m happy that I at least got out there. 😀

I hope you had a great day! またね~

Tonight we enjoyed a homemade Indian meal that Mariko made. The recipes are from Japanese sources, so I’m assuming it has been adjusted for a Japanese palette, but I really don’t know. What I do know is that it was delicious. 😀

In other news, I went for a run today at lunch. It was good to get some sunshine on my skin even for a little while. I prefer to run when the weather is warm or hot, but running in the cold is okay once in a while. As long as there’s sun!

Indian Food at Home

Chicken Tikka Masala, Saag Paneer, and Pani Puri to celebrate a friend’s birthday. Yum!

During the COVID-19 situation we don’t usually have people over, but for an event like this we set up the deck with socially-distanced seating so Mariko and two of her friends could enjoy some time together.

Don’t Forget the Naan

“Cheese Naan” Cedar Park, 2020

Last week Mariko made an amazing Indian curry, but there were two problems. Firstly, there wasn’t enough (or maybe we ate too much?), and secondly, we didn’t have any naan to accompany the curry. Both kids mentioned the fact that we didn’t have naan, so I think Mariko needed to rectify this by cooking the same curry again this week, but also making naan. And not only was there just basic naan (which is awesome), but she also made cheese-naan, which was off-the-charts delicious!

And as a side note, I think she made a larger amount of curry, but it also didn’t last long. 😄

I hope you had a nice day!
