Thai Food

So To reduce our eating out costs I decided to do a Thai food night at home.

To begin the evening Lychee Martinis and Satay chicken

The Lychee Martini recipe is from by Brian Nishii

Picked up packets of Pad Thai paste & Green curry Paste at Ranch 99 market along
with rice noodles,lemon grass stalks, bean sprouts, basil leaves & Canned Lychee
for the Martini.

Next stop the Dollor store, Its summer and they have a lot of Hawaii theme items
available I was able to pick up silk orchid flowers & leaves,stones in various
shapes and colors. By sheer luck those lil lotus shaped plates and on a previous
visit I had bought the big lotus flower with the hopes that I'd use it some day.

The lil Statuette is from a stopover at the Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok.

On the whole this did require a good amount of planning & a lot of time cooking but the food was really good and the girls loved it. Can't wait to invite a few friends over .

Pad thai

Thai food is our family favorite. We love trying out new restaurants.
lately we have been trying to cut down on our restaurant visits. So I am trying to
come up with simple Thai inspired recipes for a Thai food night at home.
