I had a relly good dinner tonight, and I'm not into salads, but I had a Thai squid salad that was at least as good as I ever had in any Thai restaurant, and I added a twist of my own.

If you have never cleaned squid then good luck to you, I'd rather clean shrimp, or even better, trout. (A couple gill slashes, slit 'em down the belly, then rip their guts out. Ready for the bacon and lemon!!! (And a bit of flour maybe...)

The squiddies are not much fun to clean. It took me a half hour to clean a pound. I'm glad I cleaned that much though, because just now after dinner I'm not hungry.

General Thai squid salad recipe: okay squid, granted, you can't make a squid salad without squid.

My twist was that I hard fried an egg (the edges have to be crackly) and then I sliced into threads, and threw that in. I've seen this added into pad krapow moo to good effect, and it was good in my dinner tonight.

It totally worked!!!

Happy Birthday Bunny!

We had the hamburger soup many of us were talking about today. Delish!

I had lobster for my birthday dinner. It was okay, maybe a little tough and the drawn butter was not melted when it arrived at the table.....and really??? 3 green beans constitutes a vegetable??? ;-). Oh we'll all in all it was pretty good and since I mentioned to the waitress that it was my birthday, she brought me a lava cake for dessert it was yummy! ;-). DH had the special which was a BBQ RIBA and chicken platter, he said it was very good and there was plenty.

ID:	16281 we started with the much touted Calamari, we quite enjoyed it as it was not rubbery as improperly cooked Calamari can be.

We had our close friends over for dinner tonight. I made Kadesma's Chicken Thighs, steamed veggies and rice pilaf.

I was hoping to make an appetizer of coconut prawns but ran out of time so through together a cocktail sauce and "poached" the prawns in evoo and garlic before shocking then in ice water and draining them. They and the sauce were a huge hit without the work of the coconut crust!

Next time I make fries I'm starting them out in the cold oil.
Yes, that's a classic
I haven't seen the original in a few years.
