I thought this would be an easy topic from Long and Short Reviews, as - previously discussed on my blog - I make resolutions every year to watch new films, read new books and try new foods all the time. However, I have to admit I was struggling for anything I'd tried recently. Possibly because the Christmas period was spent running around like a headless chicken in work and out, I didn't have time to do much that was new.
So the best I can come up with is the new foods I've tried recently.
My husband and I tried out a new Indian restaurant we'd been meaning to give a go for ages, since they have an interesting menu with items I'd never seen before. I ended up with a keema paneer dish, a combination I'd never had, and while it didn't taste quite like I expected (somehow I expected the cheese to melt, but it was mostly solid) it was delicious.
I also discovered blue hen's eggs recently while we were having an egg shortage at our supermarket. They didn't taste any different from non-blue eggs, but apparently they smelled different, as our two cats were utterly baffled by the shells.
So what have you tried recently?
I can relate with the Christmas thing, Tanith! Good grief, December is busy! Luckily, the week between Christmas and New Year always lasts 47 years, so I packed quite a bit in then. Haha!ReplyDelete
The entire month of January seems to last forever too!Delete
I had the same reaction to this week’s prompt!ReplyDelete
Indian food is delicious, and your cats’ reaction to those eggshells made me smile.
I agree, I love Indian food, although not too hot.Delete
I love Indian food.... one of my favorites is Chicken Khorma... and of course naan is to die for! I've not done anything new THIS year, so I jumped back to November...that's close enough, right? My post is here.ReplyDelete
I admit I've never like coconut curries, but I agree with you on the naan.Delete
Cats don't like change. Happy New Year.ReplyDelete
Mine certainly don't anyway. Happy New Year!Delete
I love trying new foods! I bet your cats were so cute!ReplyDelete
They're always cute :) I never need an excuse to talk about them.Delete
New foods are so much fun to try!ReplyDelete
I will always try something new if I'm in a restaurant. I can never resist.Delete
I used to live with Easter Eggers (Araucana crossbreeds) as a kid too. Like Manx cats, and the effects of the gene are actually similar, the animals look freaky because of a lethal gene but they can still be lovable pets. Supposedly the insides of the eggs are the same. (Easter Eggers were marketed as laying more nutritious eggs because the hens were free-range,)ReplyDelete
They certainly tasted the same to me.Delete
Ooh, there's an Indian food place not far from us that we've been meaning to try! Excellent idea.ReplyDelete
Indian food is always worth a try!Delete
I've discovered some of my favourite foods simply by choosing the weirdest thing on the menu.ReplyDelete
Possibly yes - I didn't notice the name. But yes, the taste was the same.ReplyDelete
