    A lot of Thais don't eat beef because of the Khmer influence which had deep roots in Hinduism.
    Sacred cows and all that.
    In our family Pa Pik Ganesh (Ganesha) holds almost equal place with Buddha.

    Au won't eat lamb... 'smell bad'

    She doesn't like Vegemite???
    Most other stuff she's cool with although Kiwi pork flavour very strong for her.
    tried her on kina and paua. The kina came straight back out again and paua was acceptable.

    She loves mashed spud.

    When they have the Thai food at Dodgers's Xmas party......it reminds me of having kids meals.......just that it is for adult females 555


    I've noticed my wife trying all types of things these days she never did. She definitely wasn't feeling my tuna fish sandwich the other day once she tried it 555

    We going to the German Christmas Market tonight so I am sure there will be some foreign foods for both of us to try

    My wife goes in waves of trying many things new....takes on a few new then reverts back to the basics with 1 or 2 items added to the basics. Apparently we are a frog farming family now also.

    Mines over last night.
    A charcoal BBQ and three Isaan BBQs going nonstop for three + hours.
    5 litres of red wine and two litres of whiskey down the gurglers.

    My biggest job was re-arranging the drivers so the least drunk ones were up front as there was two BIB stops between here and Patong.

    Got that sorted - then I discovered not one of 15 had a frigging licence!

    I was going to cook a turkey roll today but about Monday I decided fuggetabahtit.
    I'll settle for a steak sandwich.

    With leftover turkey - slice it, coat with leftover gravy and wrap and freeze in sandwich portions - keeps well and moist.

    Bon appetit!

    Funny, as I was reading this thread, having a coffee, I was watching a squirrel, tight rope walking the power lines, here in Bangkok!!!

    Madam, is not big on western food. Altho, when she is in Australia, she insists on having "black on toast" for breakfast. She LOVES vegemite, nearly to the point of addiction. She will very very rarely, have a slice of pizza.. but that is about it. When I first met her, she would screw her nose up at coffee, but now guzzels the stuff. Does Jack and Soda count? 555

    About the Christmas thing... We had Chrissy Dinner with my mum, a couple of years ago, and to Madam's credit, she ate everything that was served to her.. Typical tradition Christmas Dinner.

    I know it isn't exclusively a western food, but I remember the first time she was in OZ. Because of my work, I am away overnight. So, she gets bored, and decides to explore. I come home and there is no sign of her.. An hour or so later, she wanders in with her hands scraped and cut, and a bottle full of schucked oysters.. She had opened them, on the rocks with a rock lol. I didn't have the heart to tell her, it is very very illegal (huge fines) for bringing oysters off the rocks. You can eat as many as ya like at the water's edge, but cant bring 'em home... I bought her an oyster knife to save her hands.... She pigged out on them for months 555

    The strangest food I have seen here, was one day, I was at Madam's condo. A young bloke had been out with a cast net. He came home with a bucket full, of the usual assortment of small fish we see here.... He also had a sugar bag, with something moving inside it. Upon inspection, there was a baby PELICAN in the bag.... It went into the pot, the poor thing... I have lived along rivers and near the beach all my life, and pelicans are common in OZ, but I have never seen a baby one.... ever...

    saw a thai with a captured squirrel in a cage one time and thought that it was going to be dinner. so gave him 100 baht to let it loose.
    he had a good feed on the 100 but i suspect he would try and catch it again when we were gone.

    Aussie pelicans breed on deserted islands off the coast.. Because they are so big they need a long time to learn to fly. So you will only see fully fledged adult looking birds. There you will sleep better.

    When Dao first came to Oz she saw these pelicans. I remember plain as day. Can you eat this big duck?

    Anyone else wonder why you never see seagulls around LOS beaches?

    Their favourite food perhaps ...
