Today was a wonderful lazy (but still productive) Saturday morning. Jeff and I got some preparations done for packing and organizing the things we are mailing back to the states for our friends and family. We also made a trip to the grocery store in Nan to pick up the necessary items for the traditional Mexican dinner we planned on making tonight.
Our last effort, while it tasted good, just didn’t really turn out as true Mexican food! But this time it did; it was wonderful! We made homemade flour tortillas, cilantro-lime rice, guacamole, Baja sauce, pinto beans, chicken and venison (I can’t believe we were able to find some here!). We even made homemade flour chips! After 3 hours of being in the kitchen making food, dinner was ready and we all enjoyed a good meal. Though I am not our hosts were as fond of the food as we were, but they ate and said it was good 😊. It really was a very fun evening and I am so glad that we were able to share a bit of our favorite food with them!
We also got to experience a real Thailand rainstorm, complete with thunder and pouring rain. It was wonderful. Here is a picture, but unfortunately the video won’t upload.
