We took a road trip to The Dalles, Oregon yesterday to spend time at our favorite thrift store and found 2 others to roam through. We asked the last store owner for a recommendation for a local place to eat. She turned us on to the absolute best Thai food we've ever had and recommended we try the Pumpkin Curry dish. I decided to be brave and ordered it with vegetables. The pumpkin tasted a bit like potato but much firmer. The rest of the veggies were still firm, which is the only way I like them. I had to give the dish a "10" and give myself a huge kudo for ordering something totally out of my comfort zone.
TAKE AWAY: Life is so much fun. Try something new.
