THEY DID NOT DISAPPOINT!
The only problem, Portland is on the complete opposite side of the United States!!! How were we going to get our Pok Pok fix while living in Florida???
Amazon Ad to the rescue! Mike came across a cookbook called, Pok Pok and about had a heart attack. Moments after verifying that it was a cookbook based on our beloved Thai restaurant, it was ordered and soon in our loving hands!
We picked two recipes to try...the chicken wings and a papaya salad. We bored the boys in the grocery store searching for random ingredients we had never heard of and then finally, with some encouraging help from each other, braved the oil. Yep, we had to deep fry the wings! We had never deep fried anything in our lives so we were a little nervous.
None-the-less, we dove right in...

|Pickled daikon radishes and carrots on a bed or romaine|
|Our not-so-green green papaya salad.|
|Mike glazing the wings in the most delicious sauce ever topped with little chunks of fried garlic.|
|So far, everything was looking good! :)|
We have since tried the recipe again but this time with baked wings. They were just as tasty!!! Our next plan...shrimp with the wonderful, magical Thai glaze!!! Mmmmmmmmmmm......
|The final plates before we devoured them all!|
