Saturday night – 01/26/2013

Occasionally I will ask one of the children who eat with us each Saturday night what they’d like for dinner the next week. The answer is almost always pancakes. 🙂 This week I asked one of the adults and she said Indian food… and carrot cake (or maybe it was the other way around). In any event we end up with this for dinner.

Menu
Cauliflower and Potato Curry
Baked Samosas
Roasted Red and Yellow Beets
Green salad with cucumbers

Carrot Cake (based on Alton Brown’s recipe)

Notes
There were 10 of us for dinner this week (6 adults; 4 children).

Ted made the curry using a book called (I think) Great Curries of India. It was tasty.

The samosas looked a bit like a small pita bread stuffed with filling. They were very tasty and well received.

The carrot cake was tasty. The recipe calls for cutting the layers in half so you can get more icing into the cake. I have no idea how they get the cake to rise enough to split it. In any even the cake was tasty.
