Thai style eggplant, butternut squash soup and sushi. I know I could figure these things out if I wanted to, but why mess with perfection??

Pad thai.  I’ve tried and it was a miserable failure.  But I love it.

Sushi! I know you can make it at home but it’s NEVERRRR the same 🙂

Oysters, too. OK, I like a lot of raw food! Also, a great Prime Rib… cause there is no way I’m gonna make a 10 pound Prime rib if it’s not Christmas!

Mmm, I’m Vietnamese too and your banh bao photo makes me so hungry! I love Indian food, particularly samosas, but it’s the one food I don’t make often at home, because it seems to involve so many different sorts of spices.

Sushi–I figure that the sushi chefs are well trained in the art of making sushi, so I’ll let them handle the dirty work. 🙂

ice cream? lol idk Well this one Chinese take out place has pretty amazing general Tsao chicken. And spaghetti and meatballs from Little Italy is always better than what I can make (Though my mom does an amazing job of it!).

Wish I could make a bone-in rib eye that is just as delicious as the one at my favorite steakhoue. =)
