Friday Retail Therapy: The Thai and I

Recently, I have noticed I have purchased a lot of Thailand related objects.

This fact is not necessarily blog worthy, but it’s been a slow news week for me.

Bear with me, here goes.


I recently ordered this custom shirt from Etsy (only $25). The lady who makes it lives in Thailand. She was great to work with.

I love this dramatic feminine top. Can’t wait to take it on our beach trip in May.

Here is the link for more info. Brown cotton shirt


I feel like I buy this Thai sweet chili sauce by the truck load.

The sauce sells at most standard grocery stores for $3-5.

After I typed that I thought, “What is the world is a “standard grocery” store.”

But you know what I mean.

The great thing is our Trader Joe’s sells it for $1.29.

We can afford for my husband and step sons to  through two bottles at a time at that price!

We use it mostly for our all time favorite pizza, Thai Chicken Pizza.

Side note: I made this pizza for my sister and brother-in-law last year. My sister told me the other day that my brother-in-law still requests it for dinner weekly. It’s great stuff!!

And what I love about this pizza is if you use whole wheat crust and load it up with veggies it’s pretty good for you.


Last but not least, I really want to learn how to make good Pad Thai.

We order occasionally at a noodle bar in Asheville, Doc Cheys; but I really want to learn to make it myself.

Because I am too chicken to just try out any ol recipe, I am just going to ease into it.

I am usually not a mix kinda girl, but in great desperation (exaggeration) I picked up this mix ($1.50) from World Market the other day.

We will see how it goes.

It can’t be that hard right?

What international or “Americanized international” dishes have you tried?

  1. I LOVE that top! We live on Sweet Chili sauce. We don’t have a Trader Joe’s here, but one is coming soon! I’ll have to get some of that on our first shopping trip there.

    Following you in my reader!

  2. Yum! We love sweet chili sauce. No Trader Joe’s yet, though…although one is coming soon! We’ll have to pick some of this up on our first trip. Love that top, too!

  3. And I may have just posted twice (or now, three times) because my computer was mad at me. Feel free to delete me! LOL
