Hi everyone! This week is the Unexpectedly Epic Morgan Matson Week hosted by Tiff at Mostly YA Lit!

I was really excited to participate because firstly, Morgan Matson’s contemporaries are just amazing. They scream of summer and they feature such amazing friendships, relationships and give me a sense of nostalgia! I love it. I also jumped at the chance to participate in a DARE! If you haven’t read Since You’ve Been Gone yet, the MC receives a list to complete. I adored that book and was completely up for doing a dare! Bring it on!

My dare was to go to an Indian restaurant and order an appetizer, entree and dessert I’ve NEVER tried before!

I had so much fun with this! My husband and I went to a little Indian restaurant and check out what I tried!


Appetizer: Paneer Pakora — basically little squares of fried cheese with a chutney sauce. It was delicious! Loved!

Entree: Mango Lamb — this was SO good. We got some naan to go with our meal and I loved the combination of spicy and sweet! I don’t typically eat lamb but I really liked it!

Dessert: Rasmalai — the description said “homemade cheese in sweatened milk syrup”. It was the only thing I hadn’t had on their dessert menu so I had to choose it. It was… interesting. Haha, I just wasn’t a fan of the texture! Who would’ve thought I would’ve not liked the dessert??

Verdict: Trying new dishes at a restaurant DOES pay off! I had such a fun time completing this dare and trying something new and UNEXPECTEDLY EPIC. 😀

Now, who gave me this dare?? I’m curious to know!

Have you read Morgan Matson’s books? If not, you need to remedy that as soon as possible!

  1. OMG this is such a fun idea, Wendy! Your food looks yum! I’m glad at least one of those dare dishes worked for you. Haha! It would suck if neither were for you. 🙂

  2. Ahh, Wendy, this is SO cute! I’m so glad you had such a fun time with this – the pics are adorable, and I’m glad you found some new dishes to order for next time. The paneer pakora sounds so good, I’ll have to look for that next time I’m at an Indian restaurant.

    Thanks so much for participating in Morgan Matson Week! 😘
