I just tried Thai food a few months ago for the first time. Time to bag some Thai animals. Sounds fun.

    Gai (chicken) or moo (pork) laab is usually described as a salad, but it’s really much more than that. Here in Thailand, it‘s served with cold cucumber, small egg plant and string beans on the side. I guess they call it a salad because they are tossing a lot of stuff together. You can also get a grilled version with pork called Moo Yong Nam Tok. The meat is mixed with cilantro, mint, lime, chilies (if you like it hot say "pak mak mak"), soy sauce, roasted ground rice (gives a little crunch) and some other stuff. It’s my favorite, and we cook it at home several times a week. Rice on the side makes it a full meal. Making myself hungry just thinking about it.

    Mrs. Sunny Thai is making Glass noodle shrimp salad right now, and I just put several beers on ice. An ice cold Singha (or 5) will top your Thai meal off perfectly.
