We went to this little vegan Thai joint and picked up 5 pounds (2 orders) of pad thai to enjoy at home. Sitting at the dining room table. We have never done this before because I prefer eating in front of the television. To say "prefer" is putting it mildly.
Husband also preferred this but has turned a new leaf and would like to eat without media distraction. I decided to join him and...it was good. Really good. The only negative effect I can foresee is I may watch a lot less TV.
I did, however, eat way too much pad thai (and it wasn't very good, the noodles were completely stuck together, but I managed to ingest them all), which was not so conscious of me. But not bad for my first time.
