We kept our family adventure this month pretty low-key since we had a newborn baby in tow. Hiking or hitting the beach seemed a little presumptuous with a six pound, fresh out of the womb human. Since the amount of planning and packing involved to leave the house is equivalent to that of a short vacation, merely getting out the door seems like a great adventure to me. Hopefully I’ll get quicker as time goes on, but I just really like to be overly prepared (you never know when a poop explosion will hit).
Anyway, this month we just decided to go try some new food and broaden our taste buds’ cultural horizons. Albin and Mariah had never eaten true Indian food (and try as I might, I haven’t perfected my Naan bread and curry dishes). Needless to say, our family date over Indian cuisine was a hit. Eating butter chicken and roasted ginger lamb with naan was the perfect remedy for our newborn baby induced cabin fever. Mariah was literally yelling out with joy over her meal and Fuzzy slept peacefully in his seat until we had finished eating. It was a win for everyone.
Ps. If you live around here and craving some Indian food, we would totally recommend Naans and Curries.
