    Default Trip food


    We recently returned from Carlsbad, CA, helping our daughter's family to
    unload and unpack from their move. It's a really nice area, less than 2
    miles from the beach.

    We did a lot of forgettable informal meals, pizza, sandwiches, etc. but
    my birthday and our 45th anniversary were celebrated while we were
    there. We ate wonderful meals in local restaurants, Ocean Thai where I
    had some of the best green curry EVER, and Fish House Veracruz (mesquite
    grilled skewers of halibut and shrimp.)

    The most fun part was watching our 10 yr. old grandson, whom I think of
    as picky, eat Thai dumplings and drunken noodles and a three-fish skewer
    assortment. He declared the house-made tarter sauce "The best fish sauce
    ever. How come I never had it before?"

    On the way home, wending our way through Zion and Bryce national parks,
    we ate some really tasty smoked stuff at the Cowboy BBQ in the tiny town
    of Panguitch, UT.

    We arrived home to a lonely cat, huge golden zucchini, lots of laundry,
    and home cooking again. (So far, roast chicken, spaghetti, and chicken
    soup now simmering on the stove.

    I'm trying to pick up loose ends before our Oct 1 trip to SE Asia. We're
    looking froward to the food, of course.

    SE Asia covers a lot of territory, what's the itinerary? When we worked
    foreign we always took our trips home through Thailand, great food,
    great people, good scenery, we miss not going there every year since we
    came home.

    Hong Kong was great for shopping, Malaysia was good, dependent upon
    where you were, went to Indonesian once and never again.

    Have fun and keep your eyes moving wherever you are, lots of unrest in
    some SE Asian countries right now.

    Please tell me about your trip, Gloria. We want to do SE Asia in the
    future. Are you doing a cruise?

    Spelling doesn't count. Cooking does.

    SE Asia? Drool. I know I'd be looking for cookbooks (too).

    Sorry, I will admit I didn't read you entire post. Not because
    I'm inconsiderate, just that I'm scanning the thread board looking for
    something interesting to respond to. First thing I saw as a thread
    with the word 'disaster' in it. I had to check that out. I posted
    into it as well. Then I see your thread titled 'trip food' and I
    thought of food that might make a person trip. You know, like acid or
    magic mushrooms or something. I'm not heavily into tripping or
    anything, but that's what caught my eye and that's what I thought of
    when I saw those words. It's funny how narrow a person's mind can be
    that they can be funneled into a particular topic on the basis of
    title alone. I like when things are funny. Funny is good.
