The Ultimate Battle

After doing some research online the new addition of winter attire was chosen - the Slanket. Being the only blanket with sleeves on the market that offered camo coloring, the Slanket was beating the other brands. It finally won, after reading many reviews on its extended length - gotta keep those tootsies warm! - and huge sleeves. One drawback - it does not have a kangaroo pocket for the TV remote. I think I will survive, tho.
No Jackson, you may not have the blanket.
I can read a book and my shoulders will stay warm!

Jeffrey tried to steal it.

Jackson wants the summer back

Happy palak paneer and sushi!

I mean, Happy Valentine's Day! We celebrated it the Palmer style - Indian restaurant for lunch and sushi for dessert. And yes, it can be done...
Personal favorites today: the entire menu of Passage to India. It's always superb, but today it reached a new level. Especially enjoyed the cucumber salads! My favorite chicken tikka masala was more tomato-y than usual, which only showed to me that the meals are prepared from scratch - it's always different, yet delicious every time. Plus, I think I like the more-tomato-approach to the tikka masala.
Sushi - great, but not excellent. I am truly impressed with Sanders' sushi night and this meal did not compare. Good adventure, though!

Chinese New Year

On February 13th we attended the Chinese New Year party organized by UND Aerospace for the Air China students. We had delicious food, although I would have liked to celebrate it for 15 days, as they do in China. Favorites of the evening were the dumplings, jiao zi. Preparation of the dumplings is compared to packing good luck inside them.
I learned how to say happy new year in Chinese, but by now I forgot it all...
