thai one on

Posted on

Today was rough. It was just a really, really long day, with lots of stuff going on in the office. In fact, this is how I looked most of the day:


And yes, those are phone photos. (Note to any co-workers reading: I did this shortly before lunch, so it wasn’t on company time ;)

Luckily, my buddy Jen came to rescue me for a much-needed lunch away from the office. We decided to cash in her Groupon for Surin, a delicious Thai place downtown.

I started with a cup of coconut tofu soup.


Jen said she doesn’t really care for the soup, but I love it! It’s spicy and sweet, with little chunks of mushroom and tofu. It’s especially good if you have a cold, FYI.

For my entree, I went with the Thai Noodle, with tofu instead of chicken.


It was fantastic. The tofu was a great stand-in for chicken. I love the peanuts in this; they really make the dish for me.

Jen went with the Pad See-U.


Isn’t she adorable?? Just as adorable were her flat egg noodles and broccoli sauteed in soy sauce. Oh, and see that precious sunbeam? While I do think of Jen as my personal ray of sunshine, that was actual sun being reflected off a car hood directly into my for the last half of lunch. Blarg!

Now I’m headed off to bed to dream my little dreams. Question: Do you bring your lunch to work, go home, or go out frequently? I  live really close, so I go home a lot, but I also like to take advantage of lunch hour gym classes and often bring my lunch. I’ll be dining on these leftovers tomorrow for sure.
