Friends and Thai

in All Posts

I supervised the Husband while he packed up the car for our road trip to Miami.  :)  I was in charge of photographing the process with my new camera (which I’m still trying to figure out!).


We stopped at Starbucks on the way because I was positively STARVING.  I had an apple (unphotographed) before we left, but it didn’t over very well.  I got a Banana Chocolate Vivanno with a shot of espresso to carry me through to a very late dinner.


Guess what?  The RED CUPS are back at Starbucks!  🙂

The drive to Miami felt longer than usual because it got dark out SO early.  I was quite relieved to arrive at my BFF Lisette’s house.  I love staying with Lisette and Danny because their house is SO CLEAN.


It’s like staying at a hotel!  :)  We even get a bar of soap with our towels.


Lisette and Danny took us to a lovely Thai restaurant.  When we sat down, the first thing the Husband said was, “Look! There’s an indoor roof!”  He knows I’m obsessed with indoor roofs.  It’s a weird obsession, I know!


In general, I love “authentic” looking Thai restaurants.  I don’t like places that are too trendy – they are never as good!

We ordered a pitcher of Thai beer to start.  Danny (who has a food blog called Beer in Shape!) enjoyed his very much.


I like mine, too.  :)  The Husband and I ordered spring rolls to start off with, but these were definitely Chinese-style (i.e. deep fried) so I only had a few bites.


The Husband and I split Ginger Tofu and Basil Tofu.  I also had some white rice.



Twas an excellent meal!


Time to go to BED!  We are waking up at 7:00 AM to tailgate.  Be back with a fun recap of our Healthy Tailgate.  We’re having a healthy version of Keg and Eggs!  🙂

    Their house looks immaculate. Love that they laid the soap out for you right on the bed, like a hotel! 😀

  • Mama Pea November 7, 2009, 1:45 am

    I hope that their comforter on the bed is a lot cleaner than a hotel’s. 🙂

    I know this might sound silly but i never understand what tailgating is >.< is it an american thing?

    • Caitlin November 7, 2009, 6:50 am

      thats not silly – the husband says other countries dont do it at all! come back tomorrow and see 🙂 basically everyone hangs out outside the stadium and drinks and grills food in the parking lot.

    I’ve never had Thai food.. I’m a bit curious.
    Glad you had a good night!

    How cool to have a friend who is also a blogger 🙂 Yummy tofu!

  • MelissaNibbles November 7, 2009, 8:01 am

    I like indoor roofs too! It really makes the decor something special doesn’t it? I wish I could have one in my apartment, but that would be a bit odd.
    Your friends are great hosts with towels and yummy dinner spot. Enjoy your weekend!

  • MegaNerd November 7, 2009, 8:07 am

    You and your thai food… or is it just indoor roofs? LOL.

    Your pictures look great, love!! 😀

  • Lauren November 7, 2009, 8:37 am

    Happy you arrived safely and it looks like your friends are fantastic hosts!!! Have an awesome time at the game and enjoy spending the weekend away with your friends.

    Take care hun!

    Okay maybe I missed something … but what is an indoor roof? How is it different from a ceiling? LOL.

  • Andee (LAEasyMeals) November 7, 2009, 9:01 am

    yum thai food! Can’t wait for the tailgate recap, the egg dish sounds interesting!

  • Tammy November 7, 2009, 9:16 am

    I have a few friends who also have the lovely gift of hospitality and whenever I stay with them, it feels like I’m at a retreat or something….nice!

  • Lindsay Perrone (goodiesgalore) November 7, 2009, 9:21 am

    I love how the husband is so willing to eat healthy with you. Must make all the difference.

  • BethT November 7, 2009, 10:01 am

    Don’t think this is weird, but I think you and your husband are just so cute! And you seem happy, too, which is rad. 🙂

  • Joelle (The Pancake Girl) November 7, 2009, 10:20 am

    Yum, thai is my favorite meal to at out!

  • Cynthia (It All Changes) November 7, 2009, 10:48 am

    Authentic places are awesome! I don’t like deepfried spring rolls. Too oily and heavy. But the tofu options looked awesome.

  • Katie November 7, 2009, 11:01 am

    Tofu looks yummy. You guys are an adorable couple. Breakfast tailgate options sound great. I think I would like tailgating with you guys I wouldn’t have to bring my own food!

  • BroccoliHut November 7, 2009, 1:56 pm

    That tofu dish looks amazing! I am also jealous that have managed to find a husband who likes tofu!
