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 About.com 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 .
