Thai Cooking

Kristin and I took a Thai cooking class today. We were the only students. Firs, we went to the market to buy the ingredients. I learned how to make Panaeng Curry, sticky rice with mango, spring rolls, coconut chicken soup, and papaya salad. Kristin learned how to make green curry, bananas in coconut milk, spring rolls, coconut chicken soup, and pad thai. The day was amazing. I've eaten SOOOO much food I feel like it's Thanksgiving. We made the curry paste from all fresh ingredients from the market. The paste was made my smashing the ingredients with a heavy stone. It took about 30 minutes. Overall it was pretty easy to make the food. Get ready for a dinner party!

I was going to go to a mediation retreat center for 2 days but it's the Queen's birthday on August 12 (no I'm not talking about me!) Everything is pretty much closed down for the week. Kristin might go on a trek for 2 days, but it includes all the things we did out of Bangkok except you make your own bamboo raft to go down the river AND you see a few hillside villages. I'm thinking I might just hang out in the city and check out the temples.

Thinking of you all. See you next week!
