Breakfast

The usual oatmeal and peanuts, but today I was able to find an orange papaya. It was perfectly ripe and had that sweet meatiness to it.

Dinner / Lunch

Backed up with a lot of online work, I had to combine lunch and dinner into a single afternoon feast at my local Bangkok street food stall in Bangpakok.

The yam mamuang (green mango salad) was particularly delicious today, a glorious combo of sour mango with sweet dressing and spicy chilies. Roasted peanuts are another great addition to the dish.

I also ordered pad preow wan pak ruam (sweet and sour mixed vegetables). It wasn’t the best dish I’ve had, but it was a plate full of wholesome vegetable goodness.

Have a great day!
