Ever since I moved out here to Colorado, I have forgotten how to make many of my home traditional foods I love so much. I was raised from a very traditional Lao upbringing where my parents never took us out to eat. We always had family meals my dad would make for us. He would make us Lao entrees with home grown ingredients from my mother’s garden. Mainly, traditional Lao food requires fresh organic ingredients, tons of vegetables and herbs, and is spicy with a sweet and sour taste. Have you tried Lao food?
Papaya Salad. My favorite.
I am glad my dad is coming this weekend! I can’t wait to enjoy his home cooking!
