[FHCx12] Curried Chicken Day/Marzipan Day

Two very different tastes in one day!

NATIONAL CURRIED CHICKEN DAY AND ALSO MARZIPAN DAY!

The first thought to run through SP‘s head when he thinks of curry is Indian. Now, there aren’t many Indian restaurants up here in the north ‘burbs of the Twin Cities, but we take what we can get! We made our way to India Palace for dinner to get some curry chicken.

Rule #1 of Indian restaurants: If you don’t think you’re about to order enough food, you’ve ordered enough food.

Rule #2 of Indian restaurants: You ordered too much food.

Even getting two entrees and some naan will leave you with leftovers! It’s a good thing we have the mental willpower to stop ourselves at a certain point to take the rest home. Especially when there will be a hungry AK tomorrow who needs some lunch.

The titular Curry Chicken was spicy and delicious.

We have a hard time escaping Indian food without some sort of Biryani.

Naan: “Because that’s the sound you make when you eat it.” -AK

Overall, a very pleasant experience for curry chicken day! We don’t mean to snub the curries of the world, ranging from South to North, West to East, but this is just the one we decided. Have a favorite curry? Let us know in the comments or on our social channels!

Marzipan was a tough one to choose, as well. AK bought for us some german Stollen bread that has marzipan in the middle! The whole thing has something like 58 letters and is only one word. But the word “marzipan” is in there somewhere.

It’s the Kuchen Meister!

In winter, the stollen bread creates a coat for itself out of white fluffy stuff.

Marzipan filling!

Marzipan itself is that gooey, sugar-almond mixture that often gets shaped into animals, fruits, or other figures. And for whatever reason, SP really loves almonds and almond flavor – he says it even goes great in a frosting on banana cake – so eating some marzipan stuffed pastry seemed the way to go. So happy Marzipan day to all!

Tomorrow is Peach Melba day! We’re going to try to make it at home, so stay tuned for kitchen antics!
