One-Year Anniversary <3

As I’ve mentioned to you guys before, today was my one-year anniversary with my boyfriend Michael. <3 Last night, we went out to a nice restaurant called Raga, which specializes in fine Indian Cuisine. The entrées we ordered were:

kebob-e-khas: Succulent domestic lamb delicately marinated in yogurt, sour cream, star anise & fennel.
chicken tikka masala: Chicken tikka cooked in a tomato fenugreek sauce with Indian spices finished with a touch of cream.

Of course, our meal also came with basmati rice and naan. ; ) It was all amazingly good – nothing like I’ve ever tasted before. The spices were very rich, and left me feeling the most satisfied I’ve been in a while. The lamb, especially, was very tender and tasted like it was soaked in lemon overnight, too! A huge plus in my book. And although I haven’t had any other chicken tikka masala besides the kind served on my campus, I could immediately recognize how superior Raga’s was. So creamy and delicious! Pictured below was our dessert – mango ice cream & kheer (Indian style thin rice pudding served with pistachio, almonds & raisins). Definitely one of the best meals I’ve had in a very long time. : )

On a serious note, though, I really want to say how much I love being with Michael – he’s given me a wonderful 12 months so far, and I hope there will be more anniversaries to come for us. <3 Earlier that day, we bought Denzin a new fish tank as a way to prove our confidence that we’ll still be together in the near future. :’)

It’s a 2.5-gallon tank, as opposed to his first half-gallon bowl. We also bought him more pretty marbles and scenery to keep him from getting too bored. : ) We could already tell that he loves it, since we’ve noticed a dramatic difference in the way he swims around!

All in all, I couldn’t have had a better first anniversary. <3

  1. Aw. I had a wonderful day too! Even with the rain, it was so perfect. That food was wonderful, and indeed one of the best meals I’ve had. And I love Denzin’s bowl. Sadly, my camera can’t quite capture it as it’s not so good with the water scenes, but it’s so colorful and homey.

    Look forward to more anniversaries. I love you as well <3
