Does it seem like I post a ton of food photos? I can't help it. If it's pretty and/or delicious, I have to take a photo of it or else I never really ate it. Here are some foodporn shots of our recent American-Thai fusion excursion.

Whenever I order Asian food, I always ask for it spicier than the spiciest option since it never seems to be spicy enough for me. This time though, the extra spicy pad see ewe was a bit too much, and I subsequently consumed a huge bowl of rice and a bucket of water to tame the flame in my mouth. Well worth it though. Totes well worth it.

Do you like spicy food?

  1. I love spicy food. Like you, I always ask for it extra-hot 'cause they don't believe someone who looks like me really wants that.

    Your outfit is cute. Each of the elements is something I'd choose to wear, too. They go together nicely.

  4. Hahaha! Your ordering style is exactly like my husband's, Laura! The only thing that was so spicy it made him cry was a dish he got when he was in Thailand. Otherwise he can handle it all (even though waiters often look skeptical at him: white dude with a 'stache).
    As far as food photos go, I didn't even notice you posted a lot because it is my norm too! Life (and therefore blog) is life without food and food photos!
    Love your subtle animal print outfit going on slash how in the world are you only wearing a cardi outside?! Scotland is a wee bit (just a wee bit) too cold for that.... in the summer. Wah wah.
    Hope you are having a fabulous week!

    1. I still get weird looks whenever I order extra spicy. Maybe it's the green hair, and they can't place me, but it never is as spicy as I want it to be! Oh gosh, it's been super warm here lately. It was 70F just a couple days ago, and now it's 40 but raining. So cardigans are still perfect for outerwear!

  5. You'd love the thai restaurant/takeout we always go to - I'm normally really good at handling spice but there even the medium is burning your mouth off. I guess they are living up to their name of Siam Spicy! I love the look of that mango mouse - mango's are my weakness, in fact I made my favorite mango curry last night. Tasty tasty!

  6. I am terribly at handling spicy - I would have died with that much spice! And love the white skirt with the leopard tank - super cute.

  7. I wish I remembered what I did with my Target ruffled skirt. I have the peach one and I can't for the life of me remember where I put it. Hope I didn't donate it...

    I'm such a weenie when it comes to spicy food. It's not my tummy that can't handle it, it's my mouth and eyes. Even mild food makes me cry a little.

  8. Man, I shouldn't read your blog so close to lunch, you make me hungry! I'm teasing - I love your food photos! Thai food is one of my favorites, but I'm wayy wimpy about spices. I have an iron stomach, but I don't like it when my lips get tingly!

  11. I love spicy food. I usually order Asian food on the spicier side, but since I am in MN that still doesn't mean that things are super hot. I think most Minnesotans are afraid of spice.

  19. I like things that are a little spicy but that are not going to blow my head off. There is an Indian restaurant in my city that asks my spice-loving uncle if he wants it Canadian spicy or Indian spicy. He tried it Indian spicy and nearly died. Also once upon a time I worked at a sub sandwich shop. There was a mentally disabled dude who came in everyday. He LOVED spicy food and upon his request I would make his sub with all the hot peppers and spicy sauce. He would come back to the counter face beet red, just sweating and tell me it was the best sub he'd ever had.

    1. Hahahaha! I love that there is a demarcation between Canadian and Indian spicy! I think they asked my husband something like that before too, but it came out being to spicy for him anyway. Some people really do like it HOT though. I think some things like hot pot or pho are best enjoyed super spicy hot!

  23. We have this chipotle garlic seasoning that I sprinkle on everythinggg. I'd say I have a fair tolerance for spicy food. I like a little heat, but I don't like when something's so spicy it makes me sweat or cry :P

    Pretty little outfit, by the way!
