My Mom is an angel.

Sunday, October 12, 2008

Being that I'm a hunting widow this weekend my Mom and I went out to dinner. But not just any food will do when pregnant, you have to really want it . . . otherwise everything ends up tasting like Chipotle, just all wrong on the tastebuds. Which is sad, because I used to really love Chipotle!

What magical food hit the spot last night? Thai, my beloved Sawatdee. If you're a local and you've never been, I highly recommend it . . . although there a quite a few foodies who do not esteem it as the best Thai now that we have such a selection, we've never been disappointed.

The main reason we keep returning to Sawatdee is one specific dish, Rama Thai Delight. It is a coconut milk and peanut curry, served with your choice of meat, over steamed spinach . . . and it is heaven on a plate. It is in the background of the above picture, with the tried and true staple Pad Thai in the foreground. For appetizers we kicked our gluttonous evening off with Fresh Spring Rolls and Chicken Satay.

The reason my Mom is an angel is two-fold, first she had to be in order to hold conversation with me through dinner. I was in a bad mood due to limited activity yesterday/no husband/because I just tend to ornery lately. Additionally, she let me bring home all of the leftovers!

It is so nice to know that I have those fabulous leftovers in the fridge right now, because I already ate 95% of my Grandma's egg salad, there's just enough for one more sandwich! Yikes.

I'm starving but making myself wait until 12:00 to eat . . .but now I can't decide if I want the last sandwhich or some Thai . . . but healthy choice clam chowder sounds really good too! This is the problem I'm trying to convey, it's huge! I need to figure out exactly what I want to eat!

Which Sawatdee do you like the best? In our thai restaurant poll, barely anyone voted for it, and a few people commented that the Washington Ave one is NOT good.... I've heard 4th Street is the best... but really, I probably wouldn't be able to tell the difference :)

LOL @ everything tasting like Chipotle. I suddenly have a craving for pad thai and spring rolls. I could eat those every night.

mmm pad thai! I went to thailand for a little while...pad thai was my favorite dish, but it really wasnt all that commonly eaten. What was common?? Rice. for all three meals. sigh...

I did get the chance to learn to cook a little in the kitchen with a thai woman, its...tough. I cant HANDLE the wok!

Cheers to finding food that tastes good!
And Leah, you should be taking it easy, girl! (i.e, no soccer, light impact running). I'm siding with your doctor on this one! =)

Yummy, I love Thai! And I totally understand being a hunting widow...I go through the same thing during deer season.
