It was a pretty evening to be out and about – the temp has dropped a bit!
I snacked on cereal this afternoon and then walked to prenatal yoga. Afterwards, I met Hillary for Thai! This time at Monsoon. Matt and I used to get Thai curries all the time our sophomore year of college when our meal plans ended Friday at lunch and picked up on Sunday night. Green curry was my fav and Panang was a close second. [Locals, I can’t remember the name of the place, but it was on S. Main Street in Cornelius. It was cheap and loaded with bamboo shoots!] Ever since we tried out Downtown Thai here a few weeks ago (expensive and not too good), I’ve been on the hunt for a really good curry. I’m sorry to say that I haven’t quite found one that is as good as our college staple. There are 2 more places to try, but unfortunately neither are within walking distance.
I ordered the Panang with Tofu – brown rice was extra on the side. It was pretty darn spicy and very flavorful but it lacked the coconut milk texture I was after. (Probably a little lighter for this reason though?) Good, but not quiiiiite there.
Interesting brown rice mix – but it was good!
All mixed up:
My dinner date and I had lots of girl talk to catch up on, plus a 2-person book club of Fifty Shades (although neither of us have finished). I have a list of 25 things I don’t like about the book and 1 major reason why I love it (hint: it’s not the sex scenes). More on that after I’m through!
Karen is gone to visit a friend for the night; Matt just returned from the Pen Park market and is eating party leftovers with Mythbusters and I’m about to get in bed with my books! I’m kind of enjoying reading multiple books at once – 20 minutes of pregnancy reading to start (I’m starting something new tonight probably), then 30 minutes of book club (History of Love) and then the rest goes to 50 Shades. Makes me feel productive!
