I'm pretty sure I mentioned a few weeks ago that James and I had a double date with our friends at an Indian Restaurant. This was the first time James had ever eaten Indian food. For those of you who don't know, my boy is a picky eater. Like, doesn't eat vegetables at all. Among many other things. It's always a headspin to try to figure out dinner for the both of us since I like to eat pretty healthy. Over the years he has begun to open up to new things, but it's in very small amounts. So, I was thrilled when he discovered he liked Indian food. I don't think he would of even tried it if it weren't for going out with other people! He loved every single thing he tried, even the saag paneer, which is green!!!
So we had leftovers for two nights. The night after we went out I made a fun little palette on the floor for us to enjoy a twinkle lit dinner. He liked Indian food so much I thought it was the perfect way to commemorate it! ha ha. Seriously, it was a huge deal. He couldn't stop talking about it for weeks. I think this might of opened alot of new doors for us food wise!
We just found out some other friends of ours love Indian food too, so we may have lots more double dates in our future! I hope so.
Oh, and Bella could not stop smelling the food. She was SO intrigued by it. I love the magic that twinkle lights and candles bring. And I love eating on the floor. We actually sit on the floor every night at our coffee table to eat. Which is funny b/c literally the only piece of furniture we bought when we moved into this house was a dining room table, b/c it was the first time we had a big enough space to have one. We thought we would use it, but I think we only used it twice in 4 years! It pretty much turned into my shipping desk.
