Today my husband treated me to lunch. We are quite predictable when it comes to favorite local lunch spots. At the top of our list is Lotus Thai, a quant little cafe that is always busy, yet has super fast service and the most delicious Thai dishes. My favorite, Sweet Basil Chicken level 6 (spicy goes from 1-10, 10 being the hottest). I always like to stop and peek at the Koi fish in their peaceful pond by the entrance. It was a lovely way to spend an hour in the middle of my work day.
