Sunday - broiled steelhead, cranberry walnut quinoa, glazed carrots, rolls
Some weeks I don't get the entire week's meals planned out ahead of time, and roll with things as the week goes on. That happened this week, when I was blindsided by an urgent craving for Taco Time on Friday evening, so chilaquile is getting pushed ahead to next week.
Valentine's Day meant a delicious dinner out at May Thai. After my friends Alli and Brookeli (who have both spent some time in Thailand) told me to seek it out, I was thrilled to see green papaya salad (Som Tum) on their menu. Too bad I had to share it with Casey! As I was eating it, I was already planning my return trip to obtain more one day soon - sweet, salty, sour, crunchy and satisfying.
Next Friday's dinner better watch out: it could very well be replaced at the last minute by May Thai Som Tum takeout if papaya salad sounds good!
