Yes--it's PINK!!! I wasn't really sure about it at first, but I'm totally feeling it now. It's cute, it's compact, it's PINK, and it's a gazillion times better than my old camera. And I have it in time for my trip, thanks to my drive-like-a-maniac crazy sister.
We went out to dinner with Jen and my niece Alyssa (who skipped school-bad girl). They've never had Thai food! It's a shame. Don't they have Thai food in the Midwest?? :) Kidding of course---but really, don't they?? We grew up without it. Why did we grow up without it?? Regardless, it is here now and we love it.
Well, not all of it. I'm not going to mention names, but the youngest one at the table mentioned that she felt something we forced her to try tasted like dog food. But she did like tofu, which is good for her since she won't eat meat.
Andrew and I have Thai food about once every ten days. It's one of our favorites. We're not too crazy though, we usually have the same dishes.
We LOVE creamy wontons. They are the greatest appetizer. We sometimes get chicken satay (with peanut sauce), but it's a bit greasy and my favorite dish involves peanut sauce and chicken so it's a little unnecessary.
For main dishes, I almost always get Pra Ram, sometimes called Prince Rama. It's de-lic-ious. It's this platter of broccoli, spinach and chicken with peanut sauce on top and you eat it over a serving of rice. LOVE it.
I also like chicken pad thai (unless it's really greasy) and chicken mussamun curry, which is like a mild stew.
The kid loves loves loves pineapple fried rice, with chicken and shrimp, medium spice. One time I ordered medium spice from a restaurant near our house and they brought it to him and it was at a fire level. Seriously-he cried. (he'll deny it, but he did!)
There's also some kind of honey duck meal that he gets at one particular restaurant, with this glaze sauce that he always asks for extra of because it's just that good. I don't eat duck, though-yes I do know it's similar to a chicken!!-but he says it's the best.
And tonight, as a birthday treat and since the girls have never tasted anything, we got dessert!!!
We had sticky rice (mango is not in season-sad), black rice pudding (which Jenny refused to taste claiming to not like black rice OR pudding) and we got some mango deep fried ice cream. LOVE every one of those.
I highly encourage everyone everywhere to taste all of the above. Soon. And then report back about how much you love it all.
