Family, Food and Football: Thai Edition

Go Steelers, nice win today over the Bills. We are 3-6. Thank goodness we can focus on the food.
Menu today:
Mian Kum (Shrimp lettuce wraps), Tom Kha Gai (chicken coconut soup), Yam Woon Sen (glass noodle salad) and of course Thai beer.
The glass noodles were interesting. We told the kids they were "jellyfish legs" and they surprisingly wanted to try them and ate a bunch.
After cooking this weekend, I realize I don't really care for "fish sauce" and when I eat my Thai dishes and think they are too salty/sour that is what I taste. Blech. Btw if you are wondering what fish sauce is... It's the RUN OFF liquid collected from barrels of fermented anchovies. Yeah.
