What do you do when you want delicious, healthy food, but don't want to pay an arm and a leg to get it?
You go out for Thai food, of course!
Last weekend was a no-nonsense date for us. We needed a place we knew we could rely on to deliver. And, both of us were in the mood for Asian comfort food.
It was getting later into the afternoon on Sunday and I was a little worried we wouldn't make our date after all. Especially since my daughter and I were playing "What Not to Wear" with my closet. A budding fashionista, she loves to help me pick out outfits. She also has no problem letting me know what looks good on me and what looks hideous.
"Get RID of those jeans, Mom! And that vest too. "
Soon, there was a large pile on my bedroom floor waiting to be delivered to the thrift store. But what I had planned to be a fifteen minute project turned into a few hours. A huge pile of clothes still waited its fate on my bed and it was nearing 4pm.
And then, Hubby was yelling from downstairs.
"Honey! Are we going out or not?" He was watching the clock, worried we might not make our Sunday night date night deadline.
I pulled it all together last-minute and got ready in a hurry (with a daughter approved date night outfit, of course).
It almost became one of those "What do you want to do tonight?" date nights, but I flipped open the Passport book of participating restaurants and made a quick decision.
"Let's do Lanna Thai in Everett"
"Ok. That sounds good," Hubby was easy to convince, until he remembered an obstacle.
"But-we just did Everett last week, we can't do the same city two weeks in a row."
