I thought I was going to pass out the day he came home and said, "Guess what I had for lunch today...pizza". A few weeks after that he came home and said he went to a Mexican restaurant for lunch. A few weeks after that he was super excited to come home at tell me he ate Peruvian food for lunch. I admit, we eat out way too much, but with his crazy work schedule it's hard to coordinate lunches and dinners everyday. PLUS, if going out to lunch everyday results in expanding his taste buds, then I will continue to foot the bill.
On Friday we made plans to meet up with some friends for dinner and then catch the Stranger Than Fiction Show at LA Connection (read Friday Night Field Trip to learn more about the STF Show). We had worn out our usual dinning spot and wanted to try something new. Our friends suggested we try Thai...and Carl actually agreed. We met up at a place called Thai Jasmine located on Van Nuys Blvd. in Sherman Oaks. It was fabulous!
Our friends ordered Thai Egg Rolls as an appetizer. With very little encouragement, Carl tried one and LOVED it! He even tried the sauce with the egg rolls and enjoyed the spicy kick it had.
For his main dish Carl ordered Thai Beef Jerky. Although the flavor was good, the meat was a little tougher than he had expected.
Since Carl wasn't thrilled with his dish he tried his friend Steven's dish. Shocking! Steven had ordered Pad Thai...I thought Carl would have been turned off by the look of the dish, but he actually said he liked it.
As a Thai first timer, I ordered cautiously and got Curry Fried Rice. It had pineapple, raisins, egg, chicken, and cashews in it and was seasoned with curry. I actually couldn't even taste the curry which was a little disappointing since I have recently developed a taste for it. Carl also tried my food and enjoyed it.
After dinner we headed over to the LA Connection for the Stranger than Fiction Show.(We skipped the show last week to go to Bob's Big Boy for the Friday Night Car Show) This week's STF was one of the best one's they have put on! The cast performed a few new sketches that we hadn't seen before and it was hilarious. There is nothing better than spending a Friday night with good friends, good food, and great comedy!
Stay tuned, we have made plans to eat at a Sushi restaurant next week!
