No...it's not my birthday, but both my mom and my husband have birthdays this weekend. I am surrounded by Virgos. Above is the cake that I had a friend of mine make so that I could surprise my husband. He loved it and the moist, sweet, strawberry interior.
We celebrated my mom's birthday at Sawadika Thai Zone, which I visited a few weeks ago. I once again ordered my favorite Pad See Iew. It was delicious as always. I love the sticky chewiness of the flat rice noodles and the sweetness of the dark soy sauce. If anyone has a good recipe for making this at home, please share.
My mom had the Pad Woon Sen. She loves glass noodles and has become a pro at eating them with chopsticks. The dish was perfectly seasoned and full of tender vegetables.The next picture is blurry, but my memory of this delicious black rice pudding is not. My mom and I had never had this delight before and it was heaven. When we first saw it, we were a little scared, but after the first taste, we were hooked. It was the perfect blend of dark glutinous rice and sweet coconut topped with a cherry. The whole time I was eating it, I was thinking that it would be wonderful for breakfast. I am going to have to track down the recipe for this one!
