All at Sea

Cousin J-Yah invited me up to her neck of the woods, delightful Petaluma, for lunch and a poke through the shops to celebrate my newly retired status. J-Yah is a veteran at retirement, having enjoyed that status for several years now. She asked if I like Thai food. Uh-huh.

We ate a sumptuous lunch at Sea, a "modern Thai" restaurant. We started our lunch by sharing this pupu platter called the Parade of Flavors. They weren't just kidding, either, there was a lot to taste. Pickled cucumber salad, sweet/sour sauce, peanut sauce (and it didn't taste like peanut butter for once, but earthy, slightly spicy, peanutty), a crispy bird's nest of a fried noodle salad with fresh veggies and cashew nuts, lamb and chicken satay sticks, spring rolls, mummy chicken (you have to unwrap it to eat) and shrimp rolls with the shrimp's tails sticking out. We munched and yakked our way through the entire platter, then on to the soup!

J-Yah really knows how to enjoy retirement - I sit at the feet of the master.

Hi thank you for dropping by. I guess you found me via my daughter (sam becks&posh. You live in a beautiful area and I see you are newly retired so I wish you happy days. I retired about 18 months ago. BTW your food photos are lovely and making me feel hungry so I had better go and make dinner.

ChrisB, actually followed a link from Cookiecrumb to find you but then realized you are Sam's Mom! I met her briefly at a party at Cookiecrumb and Cranky's last summer. Hope you're enjoying retired life!

Cookiecrumb, took me a minute to get your joke - I'm a little thick! But, yes!
