I want that dry Thai laab dish with the boiled pork rinds with herbs like mint, etc.  What is that dish called?

Kinda like this but with more rinds:

I love Hmong beef laab also:

I also crave Thai papaya salad with mint and Vietnamese basil.  This is the Vietname basil I'm talking about:

Make sure I will never get to meet the dumb dumb who divorced you.  What a waste. 

A woman who eats manly food, is she even a woman?

That vietnamese basil you talking about, we eat it with baby duck eggs

I got a secret viet pho restaurant tricks of the trade for you.

(https://s3-media0.fl.yelpcdn.com/bphoto/EIwIJ1HwaACA1hoWLwqK3A/l.jpg)

Next time you make yourself some hmong pho, try this.   Take a pot of boiling water.  Add pears and boil it in low heat.  This will make your base soup sweet.  Decant them pears out and add the juice to your pho broth. 

The sweatness of the pho broth, people mistaken that it must comes from the meat bones or chicken bones.  While it is true, you will need to boil it for hours.  The natural sweetness from the pear combined with the bone marrow of the beef bones will take your pho bowl to the next level.

Kuv xav noj ib cov zaub paj kib..nrog kua txhob thiab khiav roj(home made).

That's what I made and ate for lunch today.  Zaub paj kib nrog kiav roj.  I also made stir fried diced baby squash with kiav roj too.  My kuav txo was mashed raw Thai chili pepper with garlic, green onion, cilantro, and dill.  I also steamed some zucchini.  Dipped that in my pepper sauce.  It was yummy!  I made some quail soup with chicken herbs the other day too but didn't have that for lunch today.  Maybe for dinner.   :)  I still have my green papaya that I need to shred and make papaya salad with.  I like my papaya really plain and simple.  Sometimes I make it with cilantro and green onion--it's the bomb.  Other times I like it Laos style but most of the time I like my papaya really plain.  It's more refreshing that way to me.

Picture off of google that looks like the dish I made today:

I love mint so much so I'm always in the mood for a mojito.  Haven't had a bloody mary in a long time.  Watermelon sounds really good right now... cold watermelon on a hot day is so refreshing!

Wow, sounds so wispy and dreamy that breeze on the balcony!  We went motorcycling this past weekend through the country and rode through Lake Pepin in Lake City and it was lovely.  As we rode through the peaks and valleys and through the country roads I smelled the crisp sweet air... it had a combination of fresh cut grass, sweet corn, and fresh air... it was so lovely.  I love air like that!  The weather was gorgeous too with white puffy clouds and blue skies.  As we rode through the different country roads and saw farmland and magical landscapes and valleys, the breeze hit our bodies just right.  Nothing compares to being on a motorcycle cruising through beautiful farm country and seeing wildflowers and vines on trees and wild grass dancing on the sides of the roads.

The last 2 seasons prior to this year have yielded smaller and less desirable fruits. I've been so disappointed. They used to run 5 for $5 but prices have gone up while quality has gone down. And now I can't even get them in town. I've got to cross the border just to an overpriced tray.
