(I know, time to get on the Christmas craft train, we’re newlyweds though, so please pardon the skimpy sofa table this year)
We also put up the tree, but that part happened after dinner.
FOR FOODIES- HERE’S THE DINNER PART:
We like to try new places. We also like foreign food. This week we stumbled upon the Phoenix Magazine’s article “The Valley’s 50 Best Dishes” on our 4 hour drive to Jacob’s rents’ home for Thanksgiving. We have been to many places on the list, but the majority sparked new ideas and inspiration for dates. We decided we’re going to try everything on the list, with exception of the sea food Jacob doesn’t like and walnuts that will kill Camille.
First on our list of places to try was the best Thai food.
We went to PaPaYa Thai and ordered the egg rolls (Jacob’s favorite food)
And then we had the real treat- the MANGO CURRY! It really was something amazing! It really is the perfect blend of spicy and sweet. If you don’t like spice though, go SUPER mild. We went plain mild, and still had a nice kick, which works great for us, but may not for other daters. We also did the massaman curry- our usual Thai staple. It too was great, and a bit on the spicy side. BUT when you have a cold it may be the best natural remedy for congestion. (TMI?)
And we really did have a blast all night! It made us keenly aware that as new home owners you need to do a little more to your house than you did to your rentals. Don’t worry, one day we’ll have a tree skirt, stockings, and decorations to fill our spaces. But for now, we’re pretty happy that we were able to deck our halls and kick off our holiday dating season in only one date night!
