    Well, sometimes you really need another set of eyes and brain when it comes to stuffs like your blog. I don’t know about others, but I always turn to my very good friend. I read my draft so many times but she always finds mistakes (mostly missing words). She also suggests foods to make for the blog when I don’t know how to choose from those mountain-top recipes. πŸ˜€

    And let’s go to this salad – I haven’t tried salad with beef yet. I don’t know from which mountain I lived for the past 33 years of my life that I didn’t know beef salad exists. 😐 This looks really mouth-watering, Angie. When I go to a Thai resto, I know what to order next time. Or better make my own, yes? See at FF, Angie. xx

      It’s nice having a friend that you can rely on, isn’t it? I generally can rely on my husband except when blogging and food are concerned. He’s clueless about blogging and he’d be suggesting steaks all the time!! πŸ˜€ And yes, you must try Thai Beef Salad! It’s so yummy it’s called Yum Neua in Thai! πŸ˜€

    Point Mr. Rocket Scientist over to my blog. Maybe I can get him to read a little. πŸ™‚

    • Angie says:

      I did show him a couple of your posts and I remember he enjoyed them! But I can’t remember what the posts were about. Could have been your riddle posts or that clever piece you wrote about how to determine the day of any date. Or was that Melanie’s? Is she the clever one? πŸ˜€

  3. You always make serious food – seriously good food!!! Cheeky man! πŸ˜‰
    My husband never reads my blog either…he lives it all I guess!

  4. Hilarious, Angie! Love the recipe, the photography and even that big hunk of grilled beef. Bet that rocket scientist loves to eat what you make though and how lucky is he!!!!

    • Angie says:

      He enjoyed that beef salad and thought it was a serious salad, lol! Thanks, Johanne. I’m glad you enjoyed that hunk of meat. So hard to photograph meat (brown)!

    Beef salad is soooooo good. This looks delicious Angie πŸ™‚

    • Angie says:

      I know! It’s my favorite. And it’s so easy to make. I hope you’ll give it a try, Jess! So yum! Maybe that’s why it’s called Yum Neua in Thai! πŸ™‚

    Sports in space: maybe you’ve found the cross-over point of my sports-made husband and my sci-fi loving son.

    Love Thai beef salad, too. Thanks for the great photos.

    • Angie says:

      Hey, that could be an idea for a movie! Like Martians playing sports! πŸ˜€ And maybe they’ll be eating Thai beef salad! πŸ˜€ Thanks, Mermaid, so glad you enjoyed this!

  7. petra08 says:

    Delicious! I agree with the steak, I think it might be a man thing! πŸ™‚

    • Angie says:

      I know what you mean. My husband and son can have it every day! My daughter really prefers vegetables; she’s the “almost vegetarian” in the family πŸ™‚ She and I do eat steaks but we can’t have them everyday!

  8. What surprises me is that you weren’t clutching his chest! Obviously you have self-restraint. πŸ™‚
    Lovely photos, as usual. That plate’s just great.

    • Angie says:

      I should have! The nerve!! And to think I cook him whatever he wants whenever he wants!! Well, mostly. Okay, sometimes πŸ˜€

      I know you’d appreciate a pretty plate. I’m looking for yellow now. I don’t have any in that color.

  9. Oh Angie, so funny! I don’t have a husband but my brother has been both a support and a detractor! I don’t think he spends much time reading food blogs, either! He did happen to go to mine to look for a recipe when he was visiting the folks and happened across my photo of Reuben potstickers.

    I was so proud of my shot of the potsticker, open, dipping into the sauce (I wanted to show the inside and had to be close to get it) and he reacted very, very negatively! He said we should be eating the food, it shouldn’t look like the food is going to eat you! LOL! Big, giant potsticker, I guess!

    So I know I have no perspective sometimes!! Your posts and photos are always so gorgeous, and with FF, I always have lots of inspiration! Plus, I always want to put my best foot forward!

    Thanks for all you do!

    • Angie says:

      LOL, that’s funny! Somehow I don’t remember anything unusual from that post. I only remember how much I loved the recipe and idea! Now I’ll have to go back and see the giant potsticker, haha… Thanks for being a wonderful FF friend, Ms. Frau!

  10. I agree with Elaine, you always make seriously good food! Beef salad looks so good! Love the flowers and the presentation!

    • Angie says:

      Aaw…you guys are just so sweet! The flowers added a lot to the presentation, of course. But I’m afraid I was just borrowing from Mother Nature πŸ™‚

  11. Loretta says:

    What a beautifully presented dish Angie. You have such a great way of plating your dishes…..the ingredients in this dish sound just up my alley.

    • Angie says:

      Thank you, Loretta! Really you are so kind! The peach flowers did all the work! Imagine the dish without them. Not so pretty, does it? πŸ™‚ I hope you’ll give this a try!

  12. Looks delicious! And I agree, it’s one of those easy, tasty things that you always wonder why you don’t make it more often. I agree on how great fennel is too (it’s going in a salad I’m posting next week). Oh, and my husband never reads my blog either – same goes for sports, but colliding atoms and the like rather than rockets πŸ™‚

    • Angie says:

      I’m going to make a point not to order this anymore. That way I can try other things! Oh, looking forward to your fennel salad. I bought 2 more bulbs today. Humongous! I ate half like an apple and my daughter laughed at me. My son thought I was insane! Whatever! Anyway, are you sure our husbands are not twins?! πŸ˜€

  13. Why is it that our husbands don’t read out blogs? I think you said it..they live it. Anyway, love your new site Angie and always love what you are doing. I thought of you today when I saw all those dandelion flowers in my backyard. I remember your post last year…fritters!

    • Angie says:

      Been eating dandelions for about a week now, Seana! I just popped them in my mouth, haha… But today the lawn guy came and treated it. It’s organic but I’m not taking chances. I’ll wait for another week.

      So glad you like the new site! You’re up for co-hosting FF, aren’t you? πŸ˜€

  14. chefjulianna says:

    So funny! It is just best not to involve the husbands in the blog business…at least that is in my experience! I love your Thai Beef Salad, and I really think that your self-hosted blog is transforming beautifully!

    You are so lucky to have such beautiful blossoms in your yard, Angie!! Maybe in my new home I will have the same! πŸ™‚

    • Angie says:

      How’s the move? Stressful and exciting at the same time, I’m sure! Keep us posted! It would be so much fun when you start that garden! Then we can compare notes. I’m going to take your suggestion and let my husband stick to his sports pages! πŸ˜€ I’m glad you like the blog. That’s comforting to know! XOXO

    This salad looks delicious, and I must admit that I would like to read about sports in space too. Also, for comfort, the page is super easy to navigate if you do read a lot of food blogs. Of course, as a party space, it will be great if those who read less blogs (aka: sport pages) can navigate it too. πŸ™‚

    • Angie says:

      There’s really not that much I can do about navigation, anyway. The page it set as is by the theme. And it looks pretty standard. I might provide a “home” button if that makes it easier but I myself rarely hit anybody’s home button. My husband really is clueless! He even thought the little comment count bubbles stand for how many people link to my Fiesta Friday party! Duh! πŸ˜€

  16. Whisked Away says:

    This totally made me laugh, I can picture the scenario perfectly because my husband is the same way! Well I’m sure he would be impressed now, I know I am! Looks delicious and beautiful pictures. I’ll have to make this for my husband, I have a feeling he’d love it πŸ˜‰

    • Angie says:

      He WAS pretty impressed with the salad. He thought it tasted just like the one from the restaurant but even better since he got more beef! Do try the recipe and let me know what you think! πŸ™‚

  17. What do men know!! Nothing important anyway hehe! This salad looks awesome, so yummy – I love the addition of fennel

    Personally I find the site really easy to navigate, but then I do read a lot of blogs!

    • Angie says:

      Men don’t know nothing!! See what I did there, haha… A lot of people say that to mean one thing, but really they’re saying another thing. I think the page is easy to navigate myself, don’t know what the hubs was really saying πŸ˜€

  18. This is stunning Angie the photography of course and well the meal. I love Thai so shall be saving this somehow hehe, I am useless with bookmarks, no idea how to use them and one cannot reblog here so I shall start using my Pinterest for your recipes hehe. I think it’s a great idea to ask someone who is clueless to look at your blog and find their way around it, because we don’t see many of things being experienced at working our way around, it’s looking fabulous x

    • Angie says:

      Thanks, darlin, I hope you’ll give this a try. Really was superb and quite healthy. The dressing doesn’t even use any oil! You can adjust the ratio of beef vs veggies, etc. I think you’re using Pinterest in the most appropriate way! I’m going to start pinning from the original blog/recipe.

  19. Men! I have a medical advice post being syndicated and my husband said, “What Dear, is that a good thing?” Good thing we have other bloggers who understand us. I think your food is “serious” and seriously delicious.

  20. Oh Angie, what a fab post… I’m still laughing! πŸ˜€ Possibly as it all sounds so familiar!
    I’m definitely up for a little Thai Beef Salad and the addition of fennel sounds inspired to me!

    • Angie says:

      I’m so glad you enjoyed the post. And I find comfort knowing that I’m not the only one whose husband has no concept of how much serious work is involved in putting together a blog πŸ˜€ Please do try the salad; it really is quite delicious! Thanks, Margot!

  21. Hopeje says:

    My comment on the other post was for the Thai salad one ! Really made me smile πŸ™‚ thanks

  22. Love beef! The combination of the ingredients in the salad is gorgeous, definitely trying this, Angie!

Talk to me, people!
