I can handle Thai food once in a while, but it doesn’t really burst my bubble.
That's a pity. I like Thai food and I eat Thai food most of the time (Western once or twice per week). I guess you cook yourself. I don't, so I'm reliant on reasonably priced, widely available, tasty food, which I can get in Thailand.
I really like the curry dishes, Tom Yum, and chicken noodle soups, etc., but have just lost my taste for many of the common stir-fried dishes. I have gone from eating 80% Thai to about 30% over the years.
Jai and I both enjoy cooking at home He's a great cook - 100% Thai food. He seems to enjoy the meals I prepare as well - 100% Chicago Italian home recipes.
What I do appreciate is the large variety of fresh vegetables, fruits, herbs, spices, etc., you can pick up at a local market for just pennies. The fact that a lot of it is grown organically makes it just that much better.
We went food shopping at Big C once and I tossed a bag of Bok Choy in our basket. Jai immediately removed this from our basket and placed it back on the shelf. When I asked him what was wrong, he said that none of the leaves had any tiny holes in them from insects. I just stood there with a stupid look on my face. Later that afternoon we stopped by the local market where Jai purchased a bag of bkk choy. He proudly showed me a few tiny holes in the leaves from insect bites and said..."if it's good enough for the insects - it's good enough for humans
