Thai food!!

A few days ago my teacher...Khruu Ruchada got the great idea to make some food for the Pruetts so I invited over to my house to make the food as to not make the Pruetts house busy with people and all that goes on with the amount of food we would be making. I had been wanting to have a Thai food cooking class with her anyway so off we went to the market after class.

That was sooo much fun...I wish I had had my camera. Next time I'll be prapared...we had so many vegetables and things that I thought that there was NO WAY we could carry it on our bikes but the Thai people can carry ANYTHING on their bikes. Khruu Ruchada spent about 5 minutes and had it all packed on to her bike just right! It was amazing...so she met me at my house...another teacher...Khruu Bhen came too to be the "luuk muu" which means or is the equivalent to the "helping hands"...the one who chops everything up and prepares everything...basically a prep cook. hehehe...

So...I took tons of pictures and learned how to make a few of my absolute FAVORITE Thai dishes. Are any of you interested in knowing the recipes? I can post them with the pictures of each of the vegetables that you have to have to make it...? Ok...so here we go:

My first Khaow Phat ever! It was delicious...I know it looks like fried rice but it's not the same. Lots of yummy Thai tastes in there...and if I look hot...it's because I AM!!!

Our kitchen table was literally full of vegetables and stuff...


The extremely yummy fruit of our labor!!! The dish on the Left is called Penang Moo, Middle: Laap Moo and on the right is Grapow Moo. Moo is pork. The top dish is Khaow Phat Gai (chicken). It was all terribly delicious!

A few days ago we had the pleasure of having the Garsee boys over. These kids are soo cute...they are the adoptive kids of The Garsees that we used to work with in HatYai. The Garsees are in America on furlough and were unable to secure visas for their adoptive children to go also...so they have been staying with the Pruetts. This is Jude and Joseph.

Josiah and Bang...

The boys being silly...ha!

Aren't they all so handsome?

Looks good.... what kind of spices is in Thai food? Are there any unusual vegetables?

How long will the Garsees be on furlough? I'm sure that's tough on them.
