Foods around the local Tuesday and Friday night Markets. These are the famous Durian fruits, known for their strong distinctive scent. I will have to investigate actually eating them at some point.
Some of the little red peppers that are in everything. Little pieces are okay, but too many of these will set my mouth on fire.
Warning: Potentially disturbing image ahead. I wonder if you buy the actual pig head or if it’s just there for show.

Happy Food! A few fun food items that can’t help but put a smile on my face!
My toaster makes Happy Faces!
At the Friday Night Market they had Pancakes with cartoon designs on sticks! My froggy was so adorable. And absolutely delicious. It must have been slathered in butter while making it.

Delicious Street Food! Some pretty good Authentic Pad Thai from one of the food carts here in the Isaan Province and the town of Chonnabot, Thailand. Not too spicy, which is good for me. I am still working on my spice tolerance level. This dinner provided by the same women who made us the sweet melon – milk – bean dessert, only 20 baht! I have a feeling I will return here often.
Everything seems to come in bags here. All the to-go meals, and even beverages and soups, come in little baggies. These are some soup and noodles I got the other day. I actually liked the soup over the noodles, even with it being hot. I think the meatballs in the soup were pork.

Great for snacking, I don’t feel so bad eating several of these.
Sweeter than the bananas from home, still yummy.
A Thai Dessert
I can’t remember the name of this now, but it’s very sweet and refreshing. Made of melons, beans, sweetened condensed milk (I think), some pink, chewy, jelly candies, and something we thought were ice cubes but turned out to be more coconut-y.

Me versus the Dragon Fruit
I love the colors. What a fun looking fruit.
I was not entirely sure how I was supposed to eat this.
Apparently they aren’t that hard to peel.
I wasn’t sure what to do after this point. So I ate it like an apple or a pear.
