I have so many projects going on that I keep starting and will eventually finish them one at a time! My latest is a newsletter of some sort for the community. We'll see how it goes. Maybe just start off small with sending articles to the local "Newshound" paper.
My husband and I did find a gem this last weekend. Its a new restaurant: Bree Thai Restaurant on Archer & Central in Garfield Ridge (5306 S Central Ave, Chicago, 773-767-3200).
We ate & drank these wonderful and delicious treats: Tofu & Shrimp Pad Thai, Beef Pad Thai, Thai Southern Fried Rice, Beef Pad Si-Ew, Crab Rangoon, Shrimp in a Blanket, Shu-Mai, Fried Wonton, Tom Yum Soup, Chicken Satay, Edamame, Egg Rolls, Pot-Stickers, Veggie Tempura, Poh-Tak, Thai Custard, and Thai Ice Tea. This was in TWO sittings not ONE. And the other one was with the kids & my parents. I LOVE food but I wouldn't be able to eat all that!
I would say that Bree's Pad Thai is the best I have ever tasted. Its cooked fresh to order with FRESH INGREDIENTS. Such a key to good food. I have never had Thai Iced Tea until I came here. I actually wanted some hot tea since it was a cold night. I probably should of specified. But the waiter, also Bree's husband, came out with this concoction which was so deliciously sweet. Its my favorite probably more so than Horchata now.
You can definitely tell the food is made with love and thoughtfulness. Bree is definitely compassionate about her restaurant and it shows in the dishes she creates. Her and her husband are genuinely nice, very down-to-earth people. We will definitely come back here again and again!
