Yes, I’m 35 and until yesterday I had never experience Thai food. Man, they love peanut stuff don’t they?
We were up in Bellingham for the beginning of our weekend. One of my former C-Group (FEPC Small Group) members, David, wed his sweetheart, Natalie. I was in the wedding. It had been a long time since I had been in a wedding and not been just attending or officiating the wedding. I even remembered how to put on a tux!
After the rehearsal, we joined the crowd at the Thai restaurant for the Rehearsal Dinner (never knew why we had to rehearse dinner?). Thai food, interesting choice, seemed a little trendy or something, because there was a huge group of college students (not with us) enjoying in as a large party, and then all the college age folk in the wedding seemed to really know what they were doing. I just sat there trying to figure out what ingredients were in each dish (but it was a guarantee that there was some sort of nut).
When all was said and done, I decided I would be willing to do it again, and would even be excited about a couple of the dishes!
On a side note: My girls LOVED the rice (that was all they ate, but they did love the rice).
On a different side note: Be proud mom and dad, I tried something new (I normally turned up my nose to new foods growing up).
Congrats to David and Natalie (this means about half of my 2001 Graduating Class C-Group is married now).
