The food wasn't crunchy but our lives have become that way. We're nearing the finish line with the big day and we've been busy. I have a TON of stuff going on at work (as does Meen) and we're both trying to bring it all home with the other huge thing we're working on. So last night required some errands and when we got home, we required Joya.
- chicken pad thai (NOT SPICY ... more on that later)
- chicken spring rolls
- tom yum koong
- thai salad with tofu and peanut dressing
Everything was nice. For some reason, my soup came NOT SPICY. So I had to jazz it up with some siracha. It worked just fine and the result was a delicious and very spicy tom yum koong.
Meena is trying a new trick - because even the mild pad thai is too hot for her lately, she's been ordering it NOT SPICY and just asking for some sambal oelek on the side. Then she controls the heat. You'll see the option from now on. She's MUCH happier this way.
So again, I'm going to try and keep this very up to date for the next couple weeks. Give me a shout if you think I'm slacking.
