Spice Foods

This week I joined a friend of mine for lunch at an Indian restaurant that I've eaten at once before, had their food at several catered events, and happen to know the owner as well.  The restaurant is Spice Foods in Garki, Abuja, Nigeria.  It's just opposite Bolton White Hotel.

For the price of 2500 naira per person we had the buffet, dessert (I think it might have been something similar to Kaseri but not sure, I did not ask) and I had a sweet lassi and my friend had a star.  So Spice Foods buffet is most definitely a bargain.  I've had Wakkis several times before and find the prices too high and the taste is just okay.  However, Spice Foods has me eating some Indian dishes that I've never been fond of before and every time I get a little more adventurous.  I forgot to take pictures, so sorry.  

However, what led me/us to Spice Foods was due to a craving.  The craving was sag paneer.  Gluten Free Girl www.glutenfreegirl.blogspot.com made it from scratch on her blog recently and it had me craving it.  And I got what I was looking for!  Mmm...  Also, I really enjoyed the chilli shrimp.  

They cater, they deliver on orders larger than 6500 naira and they have a daily lunch buffet and a buffet each Friday night.  I highly recommend Spice Foods when you are craving Indian food in Abuja.  They also have a location in Kano as well. 

Check it out next time your craving Indian!

Beautiful Sunsets

So life in Nigeria is filled with beautiful sunsets. Someday soon I hope to buy a good camera to capture their beauty with. But for now this will have to do. There's so much beauty in this world, isn't there? I'm so glad to be able to experience it!

Hot dirty mess Hash!

Saturday's hash was sure dirty. I was filthy from crawling up a dirt covered mountain side.

I scraped my knee pretty bad one point as well.

Half a year has past

Half a year has past already and I haven't begun to accomplish some of the things I wanted too. So now I must begin to work on getting those things into my routine for the second half of the year.

My main goal haven't been working on is exercise. I really need the pool to be completed here in Utako and then I know I will be more successful but until then I need to make more of an effort.

What goals have you yet to begin for 2011?

Sleep

It seems like these days, I can never get enough sleep. Yeah, I work a lot of hours. Yeah, I have a lot of activities...but my life has always been this way. So like I said, it seems like I never get enough sleep or good sleep these days.

But I'm thankful for getting the sleep that I am. I've had major sleep issues throughout my life. Sever bouts of insomnia from childhood through my adult years have been serious battles that I win and then they come back again.

So again, I'm thankful for the sleep I'm getting, even though it seems like it's not enough.
