Summer is a glorious time in Western Michigan. For one thing, the beach is nice and close (our weekend sunburns are still fading). But another major reason I love it is the fresh fruits and veggies that are available in abundance!

If you asked most Thais what is the best Thai food they will say Tom yum, even though the first thing a Westerner thinks is Pad Thai. Having lived here for a year, I’m likely to agree with the Thais. It’s SO flavourful. Yesterday, we learned how to make it. Tom yum means boiled, with a lot of ingredients, and spicy. And that’s exactly what it is. A good tom yum is a balance of salty, sour, sweet, and spicy.

If there’s one thing you know about me by reading this blog, it’s that I love food. Well, that and I live in Thailand. But about the food thing… some have asked why focus so much on food? On my first trip out of America on my own, I traveled to Scandinavia. My luggage is stuck somewhere in Iceland, while I’m somewhere in Norway (when you say “My luggage is lost in Iceland” out loud, you don’t expect to see it again). Then, I stupidly leave my carry-on in the bus while getting out. True story.
