mmm Thai food.... no such luck here.. have to have hubbie make it or I have to look up recipes... sigh...
MMMMM custard..... now I want some.... and after all the work I did today... I think I deserve it... hmmm wonder if I could keep it to a small.... hell wonder if they even make a small.... damn.... :)
I was really happy because they had an 85 cent cone that was about a quarter cup of custard - a perfect amount for just a taste, which is all I ever really want.
ah i decided against it...only cause i know that my tummy will hate me for it...and it is not good conductive to clearing out congestion.....
sigh so I will have to settle for a cuppa Earl Grey...grin...
Not that a cuppa is anything to sniff at!
and then followed closely by a Shiner... yeap yeap yeap...
nice and relaxed last night I was.... grin

Back before I discovered my peanut sensitivity
Tom Yum (hot and sour soup with shrimp and meat) and Pad Thai (the all-time classic Thai stir-fried noodle dish) used to be my touchstones for Thai food. Now I let my husband tell me if those dishes are good, and I judge a Thai place by its Pad Prik (the beef stir-fried with chilies or chili paste and veggies), gai yang (grilled or roasted chicken), and larb (yummy sour/hot salads). I prefer to get my curries at Indian places, myself. Oh, and if there's room for dessert, I like to get a sticky rice pudding thingus, too, if they have one without bananas. Mmmm....Thai!

Re: Back before I discovered my peanut sensitivity
I can't eat shrimp, so I understand about the sensitivity thing. I love Indian curry as well, but Thai curry is my favorite curry.
Just in case you haven't come across this one: When I started working in a call centre, talking for eight hours solid a day, my throat packed in completely for a while. The way I found to fix it was surprisingly simple, healthy, and effective: lemon and honey. Hot water, lemon juice (the fresher the lemon the better, bottled lemon juice is better than nothing but not nearly as effective of juice from an actual lemon), honey to taste.
Seriously, it works, both for sore throats caused by overuse and sore throats caused by infection. Way, way better than any throat drops I've ever tried. It medicates and soothes. And it's also delicious. (If you hate the taste of honey-lemon, think of it as medicine and skull it, but sipping it is very effective if you can stand to.)
I proselytise the benefits of fresh honey-lemon drinks, I admit it, but it works!
I like the same combo, but in tea.
I'll have to try that. It's a bit better today, so maybe it was just exhaustion and a bit of allergy - I so hope!!!
Thai Hut has been there a couple of years? Are they sure? I distinctly remember seeing it for the first time last summer.
Depends on your definition. They opened in December of 2005.
The article on the wall said since sometime in 2005. So maybe a year and a half.
Looking it up online, it looks like it opened October 2005.

Sore throats are why God invented Ben & Jerry's Berried Treasure, in my opinion - raspberry & lemon sorbet ;)
That would certainly feel good on a sore throat!
I don't know if Thai diner food is actually common, but there's definitely a Thai diner in Syracuse, NY. There's also a Vietnamese diner in Utica, NY.
There was great Thai in Anchorage, Alaska, of all places, and when we first got down here we were heartily disappointed by the offerings. It has improved dramatically in the last year and change with the opening of three good Thai restaurants.
I hope you wake today feeling much better so you two can have a wonderful time together!
I slept in today in the hopes that some extra rest would help, and when I first got up it seemed like it might be getting better. But now I'm not so sure.
And it's a lovely day out. [sigh]
Remind your throat that it's too early - I won't be there for nearly another month!
I don't quite get the "East-Coast Style Frozen Custard!" idea... I'm from the east coast and had never heard of frozen custard until I moved to Cleveland.
I'd never heard of it before I came here, either. Frankly, it just tastes like ice cream to me.
Actually, East-Coast Custard is the result of a long-standing local love affair with Euclid Beach
Park. Around Cleveland you can find traces of it everywhere, carefully preserved or revived. The recipe for East Coast Custard is supposedly based on the custard they used to serve at Euclid Beach Park, but it's apparently named in tribute of Coney Island (I'm not sure why?)
Around Cleveland, you can find all sorts of reminders of the park, including popcorn balls
, frozen custard, and the rocket car
. (My mother rented the rocket car for my college graduation party, and it was awesome.)
I have seen the rocket car in action. It is, in fact, quite awesome!

Thanks. I am beginning to think it's allergies because I don't feel any better, but I don't feel any worse.
