Indian Buffet

I am so excited, my son is home and we’re going to the Indian buffet for lunch!  After much deliberation my son decided not to extend his summer excursion backpacking through Europe and he came home on his originally scheduled date.  Much of this is due to the airline giving him wrong information about the ease and cost of changing his ticket.  Apparently it isn’t as inexpensive or easy as they originally made it sound, that part just stinks!

I have been craving Indian food for quite awhile.  I haven’t had it for several months and the last time we went for dinner which is sit-down service instead of buffet.  Usually I don’t care for buffets, feeling that if I’m eating out and paying for it I want  to be served.  However, with Indian food there are too many choices and I love them all!  The buffet we enjoy is predominantly vegetarian with a few meat dishes at the end of the buffet line.

I’ve happily called out for the first 1/2 of my work day for this.  I feel a little guilty about losing some of my saved time off, but hanging out with my kids is always first choice.  The hubby comes a close second…  There are so many great selections, the hard part will be not eating nan, their delicious flat bread that is great to sop up the rich spicy sauces many dishes come with.

If you haven’t had Indian food out you are missing a great treat.  As many ethnic restaurants they are extremely vegetarian friendly, the number of selections is fabulous.  It is definitely a bit on the spicy side but they are usually willing to adjust the heat for a milder palate.  If you’re in Florida my favorite place has several locations.  If not just take a look at their menu to see what you might be missing out on.  http://www.tasteofindiafl.us/

Last, is anyone else hooked on The Next Food Network Star? It’s not the most veg friendly show to say the least but I love watching it.  This year I am cheering on Aarti Sequeira who I just think is adorable, full of personality.  She cooks a lot of traditional Indian food which all looks delicious.  I watch her cook and mentally turn her dishes into veg dishes.  With her style of cooking it should be pretty easy.  Maybe I’ll check out her blog and convert a recipe later this week.  If you’re interested her blog is: http://www.aartipaarti.com/

Have a peaceful day!  Lin
