I love food and I also love the tv show Friends as do two of my friends from university so for the past three weeks, Tuesday nights have been our international food and Friends night! I can't remember why we started it, I know one day we were talking about curry and one of the girls had the entire set of Friends DVD's and food (curry at the time) and Friends seemed like a perfect combo!
The first night we went for Indian food and had two types of curry. Butter chicken (which is my fave!) and also a chicken and potato and bean one (edit been told it was korma!) which was so good! We brought some naan bread and poppadoms from the supermarket because we had no clue how to make them and it was just easier. Natalie and Ainslie did the curry and I had the hardest task of doing the poppadoms! Was quite challenging having to spray them with oil and pop them in the microwave... Hashtag masterchef! It was difficult stacking them. But all those building and technology classes at uni helped out because my Leaning Tower of Poppadoms never fell over! The girls also made brown rice to go with the curry and we also had some steamed veggies which were delicious! Love me some veggies!
Last night we decided upon Mexican and had some tacos! I hardly ever have tacos so this was a nice change! Ainslie made some guacamole which I was keen to try. I think avocado is an acquired taste and I've had some well interesting experiences with it in the past! The one Ainslie made was delicious but I don't think I'll be reaching for avocados anytime soon! A little salsa style dish was also made and that was so tasty!
And watching Friends was awesome! Ainslie knows all the episodes essentially back to front! We're starting right from season one and I am obsessed with Rachel Greens wardrobe! We also watched the first Pitch Perfect movie the other night and we're planning on watching Age of Ultron soon because we never went to see it when it was at the movies!!
We're going to be having an Italian night soon and I'll be doing a bacon risotto! And also a Greek night will be happening soon because I'm in it for the haloumi!!! If you have any dishes you think would be yummy to try give a comment and let me know! Can be from any nationality! We'd all love to know!
Until next time, keep smiling :) Em xx
