Weekend of Delicious Food

We had an amazing weekend filled with delicious food!  There are some foods that I absolutely love, but don't eat very much due either to price or calorie restrictions.  I got two of those meals this weekend.

The weekend started on Friday.  A few weeks ago, we got an email from Tom's Aunt Janet.  She is a lawyer in Las Vegas and was going to be in Seattle for a couple of day for a training she had to attend.  She made us the offer that if we could get ourselves to Seattle, she would take us to dinner.  Add that amazing proposition to the possibility of Tom getting to ride a ferry and there was no way we were going to turn that one down.  So, after Tom got off work Friday we took the ferry over to Seattle.  We spent a couple of hours wandering around downtown Seattle and visiting a few novelty shops (of course Ye Old Curiosity Shop was one of them).  At 7:30 we met Tom's Uncle Ken & Aunt Martha (who live in Tacoma) at Ivar's for dinner.  For those of you who aren't familiar with Ivar's, this is an amazing Seafood Restaurant that is famous for it's Seafood and Clam Chowder.  I had the most amazing Salmon dinner of my life.  I'm still thinking about it.  I had grilled King Salmon with Asparagus.  It was absolutely mouth watering.  I also got to taste Janet's "Acres of Clams".  It was also delicious!  Good company and good food makes for an amazing dinner.  Thanks for the dinner Janet!

Saturday we spent the morning making a trip to the dump to finally get rid of the wreck of a gun cabinet the previous owners left here as well as a bunch of other miscellaneous junk.  It was quite the experience.  Turns out a lot of other people had the same idea.  Long lines at the the dump are not my idea of fun.  That night we went to our ward temple night.  Afterwards we joined 5 other members from our ward to go to an Indian restaurant.  Tom always jokes that we had to go all the way to  Japan to figure out how much we like Indian food.  The food was absolutely delicious!  I had Coconut Chicken Curry, Rice, and Cheese Nan Bread.  Nan Bread is a kind of flat bread!  It's delicious.  I might me biased, but I think my dish was better than anybody else.  Absolutely delicious!

I LOVE Indian food. Sweet Naan bread (usually filled with some combinations of dried fruit and nuts crushed really finely) is my favorite. Yuuuuum.
