Bossy hasn’t been treating herself to restaurants, and even as she types she knows there is photographic evidence of at least one restaurant in Bossy’s near past, two if you count drinking your lunch, but what Bossy really wants to say is: trust her. She cooks and eats at home and cooks and eats at home and cooks and eats at home and ceats and hooks at ome.
Last night was different, because it was Bossy’s sister-in-law’s birthday. A small collection of friends and family gathered at Bossy’s brother’s house, where they poured over a take-out Thai menu, where poured over equals pour more wine because apparently you need a handful of college degrees to figure out how to order for ten starving people when three are picky kids and one is a vegetarian and the remaining guests are carnivorous drunks.
But when the food arrived, it was like Christmas, where Christmas is unmarked plastic containers filled with Mandarin Chicken Kung Pao and Beef Pad Thai.

Now I’m hungry for some company and good Thai.

I *LOVE* that the kids are at the “real” table and the adults are all clustered around the coffee table, on the floor. What a relaxed, casual, fun group of folks this is!
Hokie Deb saysMarch 9, 2009 at 8:51 am
–>For once, I think I’d prefer to sit at the adult table and not the kids’ table. It looks like ya’ll had a lot of fun.

and crispy crab wantons – don’t forget those. such a yummy meal with equally yummy friends!

CRISPY FRIED WONTONS???? There were crispy fried wontons there? Bossy totally didn’t eat even one of those crispy things because she thought they were just fried oil.

Is there a good reason why Stella was snubbed? Maybe Stella isn’t into Thai food, or maybe Stella stayed home to watch The Amazing Race and Celebrity Apprentice.

We ate good Thai food last night, too — cooked lovingly by my brother’s Thai girlfriend. Fan-fecking-tastic.

I had Thai last night, too. Basil noodles with vegetables. But I ate out because I’d taught two yoga classes in a row and damn well deserved it.

Sounds like Christmas to me!

i love how the adults are on the floor at the kiddie table and the kids are at the grown up table.

Happy Birthday, Bossy’s Sister in law! We celebrated your birthday on Saturday with chicken Pad Thai and Spring Rolls.
reen saysMarch 9, 2009 at 1:47 pm
Oo, I love Thai food! Yeah, I’d have my kids sit at the table too, if only because there’s no WAY I’m letting them near the carpet with Kung Pao!
Carroll saysMarch 9, 2009 at 3:27 pm
Take-out Thai for ten? A veritable gustatory orgy! Like all your other readers, I greatly admire your circle of friends/family — everyone always looks so *interesting*. y’know?
Reeb saysMarch 9, 2009 at 4:06 pm
I had Thai last night and this photo and description makes me hungry for more.
David can I come to your yoga class?

Ooooohhhhh… Thai Takeaway. You know I never go to restaurants either – mostly because the nearest actual honest-to-God sit-down restaurant is about three hours drive away. We do have a Thai takeaway in the nearest town (just 35 minutes drive away) which works out of the regular cafe once a week… if they feel like it. WHen they are there, it’s FANTASTIC.,, when they aren’t there, it’s an hour and a half for bad fish and chips. Nasty.
Now I am salivating for Pad Thai and Red Chicken curry that I cannot have for at least four days… thanks a lot Bossy!!!
PS Thanks for taking part in my little contest… winners are posted!!!
