Snow, Kitchen & Beef Tikka Masala

I woke up this morning to take out the mail in the mailbox. It's snowing and I guess it's probably been snowing since early morning. It's white everywhere, but it wasn't thick as back in northern indiana where hubby was from.

I can feel the winter breeze touching my face. I have a goal today aside from doing my regular household chores...to blog, as I haven't posted here since November last year. I had to welcome my first blog for 2010 with a warm pot of Beef Tikka Masala against the cold chilly weather outside. My hubby and I are a fan of Indian cuisine but we bid goodbye to eating out all the time (thanks to Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey). So, we aim to complete our kitchen/dining area to a global themed kitchen that will bring us to a fine restaurant or global cuisine experience every time we sit down to eat. Although we are not there yet...we began by painting our kitchen mustard yellow (never thought I'd like it). The color scream spices for me so I hope I'm opt for a good start. We want to paint the kitchen cabinets but we can't agree on which paint goes on it. Oh well...that'll come sometime.

I can smell the simmering pot of Beef Tikka Masala right now. I had to do it semi-home made almost in every cooking so I had to go with the jarred Tikka Masala sauce from "Kitchens of India" which my hubby and I really like. Try their Paste for Butter and Chicken Curry also for a quick curry dish. I still make my mom's dish which is the old-fashioned Filipino Chicken curry with pineapple. But above the rest, hubby's favorite is still Adobo & Sinigang.
