Saturday after Josie's soccer game, we all walked a few blocks to take the bus to Caffe Paradiso. We met Parker's charming art club teacher (a student at the local university and we've heard she is interested in veganism) and checked out their work.
I love the idea of this project. They were supposed to send a text message to the world.
Zyggyz and before that it was the original Basil Thai (whoa, we have been in this town too long now). Anyway, the ambiance is the same. Slightly greasy and fast food feeling, but the food was pretty good for the price.
Rob's Mussamum Curry with Tofu
Parker's Yellow Curry with Tofu
Josie's Pad Thai with Tofu (no egg)
Dema's Pad Lard Nar with Tofu
My Eggplant with Basil LeavesWe all agreed the curries were good, but not great (everything was a bit greasier than we like), but we would get the Pad Lard Nar or the Eggplant with Basil Leaves again. We would take our Klean Kanteens and bamboo forks next time because all they have is plastic wear and Styrofoam cups. We ate our fill and I walked with the boys to the library and Rob walked with Josie to the Walnut St. Tea Co. We met up halfway home to all walk home together. We thought about renting a Zipcar for the day, but it was so much nicer taking the bus and walking. We didn't get as much done, but it was so much more fun doing it. We made it home in time to visit with our friend Kurt (former neighbor) in town from California and Rob and I used the long afternoon walk as an excuse to take a luxurious late afternoon/early evening nap. We had family movie night of Sky High (pretty cute and one of the characters is veg!) and popcorn with nutritional yeast and pepper.
