    Sweet.

    But I'm not sure where "Thai" comes in.. is it the silky butternut squash sauce?

    My husband lived in Thailand when he was in the Peace Corps, so I sent him the recipe because I didn't think it was Thai either. This is his response:

    "No butter in Thailand - only farangs drink milk, and they think cheese is disgusting.

    Don't ever remember seeing brussel sprouts there...

    Other items are commonly used, though, including snapper, butternut squash, garlic, shrimp, muchrooms, including chanterelles and shallots.

    still weird, no fish sauce, no soy."

    That's interesting.. I wouldn't have guessed butternut squash is used very much in Thailand. Harold is almost using a misnomer, unless the consistency of the sauce, or somehow the composition of flavors, suggest Thai. But it may be as much BS as Stephen's "seared to the fourth power" schtick.

    Okay, I am part Thai, and my dad owned a Thai restaurant for many years, and while Harold's snapper sounds delicious, there is nothing at all in that recipe that suggests Thai to me.

    It sounds fairly simple to make though, and like something I could easily make at home, whereas with Miguel's dessert recipe, it was labor enough just reading the damn thing. I would never go the trouble to make that thing myself; but I guess that's what going to restaurants is for!

    me too.

    I leave the complicated stuff to my neighbor, who used to be a professional chef ... she's the reason I've gained 5 pounds!
