Cabbage and Peanut Salad
Cabbage is one of my favorite vegetables to cook with. It's cheap, flavorful, and is great raw and cooked. The Thai understand cabbage is awesome as well. Here it is prepared much like a cole slaw but with other savory elements of peanuts and fish sauce. We overdid it a bit with the chillies and some people couldn't eat it, but generally this serves as a very spicy side dish with most Thai meals.
Laap or Seasoned Ground Beef
Green Curry With Chicken
The meal was a great success for the most part. Once again all the leaves were used in the dining room table and nobody appeared hungry when they left. I was a bit saddened by the lack of any noodle dishes, but it's hard to fry noodles for a large crowd. The next day I made some pad thai to satisfy my craving, just writing this post has me thinking of busting out the wok tomorrow.
