Traveling through Taste

So my not-resolution resolution for 2017 was to purposefully be present and do, translating into a goal of experiencing at least one new thing for every calendar month. While our wallets recovered from the holidays and buying a house, we stayed close to home in January. But my taste buds traveled to the Middle East and Far East, thanks to the variety of restaurants accessible to us!

My first food foray of the year was at the Afghan Kabob Palace in Charlottesville, Virginia, for a lunch out with the whole office. It was a dream-come-true for the cravings of a pregnant woman! An all-you-can-eat buffet of lamb or chicken curry, manto (beef dumpling), somosas (stuffed pastry shells), eggplant, rice, and other various vegetables served in traditional Afghani spices. It was delicious.

My taste was not yet sated for eastern food, though! The following week, I ventured farther east (figuratively, that is) for Indian cuisine: chicken marsala on a bed of curried vegetables and rice. I think this baby already has the makings of a transcontinental cuisine connoisseur since most of my cravings lately have been for ethnic food!

What's piqued your taste buds lately?
