Mistress of Spices Theme

The "drink" table
The "dining" table

I bought tons of bracelets and placed them all over the "dining" table. We all sat and the table long after lunch and "played" with the bracelets while talking to each other.



This is the "italian wedding cake" made by my Aunt Mary. It's not "indian" but that's ok because it's CAKE.. and we LOVE cake...

Unfortunately, I totally forgot to take pictures of all the "indian" food on the kitchen island. Oh my gah.. there was so much food too. It was a true "India Palace or India Garden" buffet.
So try to envision -
hummus
grapes, cheese and crackers
plain pita chips
naan
flat bread
jalapeno cheese dip
jalapeno cheese squares
yogurt dip
sweet potato chips
samosas
spinach paneer
cherry almond salad
chicken tikka masala

Each person was assigned a "spice" and asked to bring something that included their spice.

Kathy "Ginger" Spice brought Ginger Ale.
Dixie " Cinnamon Spice" brought cinnamon roll sticks
Wendy "Chili Pepper Spice" brought 3 dishes (show off) - spicy hummus, jalapeno cheese squares, and jalapeno dip
Shelby "Curry Spice" went in on the indian food with me - everything had curry in it.

The best part of all - I got to use Pandora Internet radio - love it - I created a "radio station" based off a song from "Slumdog Millionaire" - and it just kept playing songs of the same genre. It was awesome.
