We regularly need our “Thai food fix” and mostly of the time to get that fix, we actually just cook thai food at home since it’s so easy to do. Last week I starting thinking non-stop about Tom Yum Soup, and without very many ingredients on hand, I managed to whip up a pretty decent pot of amazingness! There’s no mistaking that we absolutely LOVE Thai food, and there’s no such thing as “too much” of it! Fortunately, a few years ago, I picked up some pretty good tips from my thai friends, so at least we can always cook for ourselves when we don’t feel like leaving the house.
For our most recent date night, we headed to a thai restaurant just down the road from our apartment complex. They have a decent selection of dishes, some influenced by Chinese cooking styles, but still none the less, pretty good!
This side dish was very tasty, and something that we have never tried before. Seasoned pork with red and green chill peppers, in bite-size lettuce wraps. The red peppers were a little spicy for preggo-me, but still very delicious. Justin picked out all the spiciest bits.
We also enjoyed some fried seafood rice, spring rolls, green curry, and seafood tom yum soup. What an amazing combination. We definitely got our “fix” and we are glad that this restaurant opened up so close to our apartment! Now if only we could figure out a way to eat Thai food everyday — hhmmm… perhaps move to Thailand? I was all set to do that in 2009 but in the last second I decided to venture to South Korea instead. Do I regret it? No way — That’s where I met the love of my life!
With winter vacation only a month away, we have been looking at our options for a nice warm place to travel to. There’s only so much pollution and cold that these two can take, and I distinctly remember us feeling like this back in 2011, during our first year in China. It’s time to migrate south for a few weeks. Sun, sand, adventure, good food – Yes, please!
Our two main choices right now are Thailand and the Philippines. Although we have been to the Philippines once before, and each of us has been to Thailand twice before, we could never grow tired of these destinations so we will be heading back to one of them for a month. The deciding factor will probably come down to visas, and budget, but we have a few ideas lined up — and once we know for sure, we will fill you in!
Although, after all this talk about thai food – and looking back at our old blog posts from last thrip to Thailand – I don’t know that we could NOT there since we are so insanely obsessed with the Thai cuisine! As you can see above, thai food looks – and tastes – way better in Thailand. There’s simply no denying it – Thai people really do know how to make an amazing meal!
