No, this isn't about 50 Shades of Grey, tsk tsk...such a dirty mind you have.
I am not always adventurous when it comes to food. It's not because I'm afraid I won't like it, I'm okay with that. I am more afraid of not knowing what to order.
The last time I went to a Thai restaurant, I was 18 years old, in San Francisco with my 2 cousins. I was not an adventurous eater, I hated anything spicy, so I'm pretty sure I had steamed chicken wrapped in banana leaves. It wasn't a great endorsement to ever go back.
Today my husband was back from his work trip and decided to take me out to lunch. He didn't tell me where we were going. We pulled in to the parking lot and in the tradition of "keeping it real" on here, I will admit to this embarrassing conversation.
Me- "Wait , what? No! I don't know what to get here! This is the worst idea ever!"
Him- "We'll figure it out..don't worry" ( I worry)
Me- "No, I meant someday, as in I need some time to Google this and ask around, I'm not ready!"
Him- "We will figure this out together, it will be fine"
Even as I'm panicking, I realize I'm acting like a lunatic. I was the one who said a few weeks ago that I wanted to try Thai food. He's the one doing exactly what I asked for. This is like Haley's comet! I should shut my mouth. Now.
My fear is based from that feeling that people have been eating this for awhile now and living out in the burbs with kids , I am not always exposed to different cuisine. I assume that all the cool people know what to get , so I think that when I get into the restaurant it will just be a bunch of words that mean nothing to me.
Of course, this menu had descriptions on it. I worried for nothing. I think I was safe in my choices, but I loved everything that I had. I even tasted some of my husband's soup which sounded disgusting, but was very tasty. I am looking forward to exploring the menu ( I took like 3 menus home, so I can study them, I'm not completely cured) and I really am thankful to my husband for a great idea.
I am willing to hear suggestions on foods to try....anyone? anyone??
