Sometimes Becky and I go way too long without seeing each others faces.  Blogging helps us stay connected, but there really is no substitute for face-to-face interaction.  Since we are both huge foodies, our togetherness is often  always paired with food.  This time, we let our husbands come with us.  Have we ever mentioned that we both married Latinos?  Becky’s husband is half Mexican, half Colombian, and mine is half Puerto Rican, half Colombian.  If we looked more related, you probably wouldn’t have a difficult time convincing me we are sisters, separated at birth.

So, yes, back to the food.

Kalachandi’s.  Indian.  Vegetarian.  Delicious. 

That was the condensed version of what turned out to be a magnificant evening.  Kalachandi’s is located in a spectacular temple, the ceiling above the tables is a tree and between the branches you can see the stars.  The food was incredible, the Indian spices were not overpowering (even though I’m okay with that), their homemade whole wheat cinnamon raisin bread practically melted in my mouth, and please don’t get me started on the Tamarind Tea!  The tamarind tea ended up being the best part, aside from the company.  None of the four of us even like iced tea, but this stuff is like liquid heaven.  I’m not kidding!  Becky and I have certainly added this to our list of recipes to try to imitate so be watching for it!  I probably could have drank two pitchers full of it!

Here is a photo summary:

So, if you live in the DFW area, definitely make a trip to Kalachandji’s.  It will be well worth your while.  If you don’t live close, find your own special place and enjoy a few priceless moments with the special people in your life.  That’s really the most important part.

So, until next time, it’s skinnyfatgirls signing off.

    I love Kalachandji’s! I try to make it there at least every other time I travel to Dallas. Beautiful ambiance.
