The maiden voyage of the PIG Project was to Afghan Grill in Woodley Park, DC. and we have earned our Afghani Merit Badge!
We were joined with some gourmet company, Adam, Thelma, Jill, and Jane.
I had the Kadu Buranee, a delicious sautéed pumpkin dish topped with garlic yogurt and sauce.
Neil had the Badenjan Chalao, eggplant sautéed with onion, garlic and tomato, with lamb.
The dishes were so flavorful and the company a delight.
It was an excellent kick-off to the PIG Project!
1 down, 195 to go!
