Nobody cared that I ate a frog.

Honestly bro, it kind of grossed me out.

Its quite delicious, seriously.  Essentially sectioned legs - a lot of bones for the meat content, but tasty, in a curry.

So tonight I won't mention my dinner, but what we ate with before dinner with aperitif - at sunset we were drinking 'iced beer' (beer kept so cold it turns into a kind of gel) and with it we ate 1) a plate of very fine, hard, salty French sausage (it was also quite red, don't know what it was), 2) a plate of 'crying tiger beef' - delicious super fatty beef belly meat grilled and served with a peppery dipping sauce, and 3) a bit of 'larp mu' - a pork larp or Isaan style salad of meat and herbs, with a little bit of pork skin and liver.  Wow, what a wonderful time.  I was tipsy and really enjoyed the meats, but still had room for dinner later.

Oh I don't mind if you mention frog...I'm past it now Smiley

A medium-sized pizza from Snappy Tomato Pizza. It looked like this (without the toppings):

I made a lazy beef stew. Potatoes, corn, lima beans, carrots, beef, water, spaghetti sauce. Pretty good with crusty bread.

A chicken quesadilla with left over chicken and mozzarella cheese because we were out of four blend cheese.  Still good though!

Well thank goodness its only for tonight.

I had a fine meal at a local 'hi-end' restaurant, which is a mix of Thai and Chinese-Thai cuisine - the sort of restaurant that when you walk in you see many local business people, and they're all saying 'sawadee cap' and 'sawadee ca ajarn', and everybody's waiing like crazy.  Its really amazing how much a part of this community I've become.

Anyway, we were a group of five, and we had a big fire-pot of 'po-teag', a kind of very spicy seafood soup with loads of shrimp, squid, fish and mystery items, with a very difficult to explain or pin-down broth - different from all other Thai soups.  Maybe tomatoey?  I'm no expert but I know I love it.  We also had a lovely fried snake-head fish, a platter of 'cashew chicken' - a bit different from that served in the US, but you wouldn't find it bizarre - an order of 'fish maw' - which is in fact a delicious, light dish made of fish's air-bladders, mushrooms, bean sprouts, and fluffy scrambled egg, an order of 'mu-manao' or pork-in-lime-juice, which is sauted pork covered in lime with fresh raw very cold (supposed to be iced) vegetables, and a yellow curry with big prawns. 

All delicious, and washed down with loads of beer, various 'lady drinks' (like this wine-cooler type things), and Coke for myself, at this hi-so restaurant the price was a little stiff at about $10/person, but I wasn't paying so it didn't bother me.

A couple of photos of stir fried fish air-bladders:

Went to a Portugese restaurant last night.

Artichoke hearts stuffed with crabmeat and shrip in an amazing sauce.

Sounds lovely Gramps.  Tonight I ate at my most regular haunt, where I had a big section of a fish (cross section) deep fried, served with an unripe-papaya salad/sauce - spicy and sour.  Really amazing dish, reminded me that we always eat cole slaw with fried fish back home.  In addition I had second fish dish - a stir-fry with lots of celery-like vegetables and little chunks of I believe the same fish, and a delicate stir-fry of mushrooms and slivers of pork.

This restaurant is sort of 'cafeteria style', in that there is a selection of around 10 or so dishes and you chose simply by pointing.  I also had a desert somewhat like tapioca, with bits of coconut flesh and corn in it.

Total bill, washed down with free water - about $2.85

I'm probably going to re-heat some beef enchiladas that I made last week. Get them done with before they go bad. I'll make some cilantro lime rice to go with it too.

Did you 'make' them or were they from the can?  I used to eat canned something in Missouri - I think they were enchiladas - kind of corn casings and beef inside.

Made them. It's something else that comes canned.. I think it's tamales that come canned.

You're exactly right - I ate Tamales in a can.

But tonight I was out with a big group of foreigners.. about six I guess.  We ate kind of high-end 'farang food' or European food.. mine was:
1 - a gin tonic
2 - big glass of white wine that lasted me through the meal
3 - a salad with deviled eggs on top (nice dill in the eggs)
4 - an odd sort of gnocchi dish with a filet of fish underneath, all quite garlicky
5 - an espresso

Total bill, 500 baht or about $15.85

Last night I had a lovely rib-eye steak with a Roquefort sauce, various vegetables, and fries, preceded by a terrine, and followed by a raspberry pudding.  With a small carafe of red wine and an espresso this came to about $12.50 if I remember rightly.

Tonight at a similar but slightly higher end French restaurant down the soi I had a similar meal - a terrine, a chicken breast stuffed with Chorizo in a spicy sauce, veggies and mashed potatoes, and a 'floating island' desert, also washed down with one glass of red wine and an espresso.  This time the total was about $19.

For tonight I've ordered the special 24 hours in advance mussels boil at the first place, can't wait!

Scrambled eggs with tomatoes, chives and chunks of feta mixed in. And an onion, obviously.

I had a lovely Southern dinner - a kind of rich, slightly sour, moderately spicy souplike curry with very small, buttery-flavoured fish in it, a spicy 'sat-aw' curry with shrimps and bits of chicken thigh, along with onion and of course 'sataw', over rice, and a soft, delicious soup of bamboo shoots, large black mushroom-heads, and small pork ribs.

Total bill was quite high for this type of restaurant - about $3, because I ordered extra of the wonderful little fish - one was even full of eggs!  wow, so good.

A lovely steak dinner tonight - but like most really good steaks in upcountry towns, it has to be a pork steak (or pork chop) as beef is substandard here.

Two nice porksteaks (or boneless pork chops, I think), with sides of sweet corn, spinach, french fries, carrots, and two sauces - one pepper, one mushroom.  Washed it down with red wine (alas bad), for a total bill of about $6.30.
