It started by my going out to dinner with my friends Willa and Diane. Both are 'fiber people'- weavers, spinners, knitters, etc. We try to get together once a month and have dinner at any new and interesting restaurant we can find.
This month we went to Bombay, an Indian restaurant on Wayne Ave. in Chambersburg. In the past we've had to go to Harrisburg for Indian food, but now we are happy to have one close by. And a good one too! Very dignified atmosphere and so nice and CLEAN!!!
This is an appetizer called bhelpuri, a deep fried fritter with onions, tomatoes, potatoes and spinach. They were yummy.
I forgot my camera, so Willa kindly provided the pictures from when she and her husband had eaten there. This is an entree featuring lamb (I forget what it is called) with a serving of naan, the traditional Indian bread baked in the tandoor oven. The tandoor originally was a large oval shaped earthenware crock with an open bottom. A fire was made in the bottom, heating the pot hot enough to roast meat and bake bread. Nowdays, of course, tandoors are electric and look like a ceramic kiln.
Kathy is happily working on a circular piece in big wide strips. Nice colors!
Jill is almost finished her sheep and is looking forward to starting on her next design. She and Bath are both looking very serious in the pictures.
Beth's bird and cherry brancy is looking great!
