Lemongrass Thai Restaurant Review

We recently went to Lemongrass Thai, and I decided to do a review on it, since there haven't been any food posts lately, or any posts for that matter. Sorry about that...:(
There napkin folding was pretty unique and the restaurant was very nice.

As an appetizer, we ordered vegetable rolls. They had cumber, avocado, lettuce, and carrots, and were served with an amazing peanut sauce.

We ordered a soup called Tom Yam Pak. It had vegetables and a lot of herbs and lemongrass. This soup was literally one of the best soups I have ever had. The flavours came through so well and it was just amazing. I could taste all the herbs and the vegetable were not overcooked. It was almost the best part of the meal.

Our entree was Pad Ma Khua Jay with white rice. That was basically a bunch of vegetables and vegetarian roasted duck made out of wheat, in a chili sauce. It wasn't my favorite. It was too salty for all of us, but the vegetables weren't too bad.

My favorite part of the meal was probably this homemade coconut ice cream. It was really rich and you could taste the young coconut in the ice cream. It was a delicious way to end the meal.

Overall, I would give this restaurant a 3 out of 5 stars. 

Happy dining!

Martha Stewart Crafts Deep Edge Punch Review

This weekend I bought the Martha Stewart Crafts Deep Edge Punch pictured below. We found it at T.J. Maxx for only $4.99 whereas the price at another store would be $8. I thought that was a pretty good bargain. As soon as I got home, I tried it out and I loved it! It makes amazing patterns and it looks so pretty. 

I loved it so much, the next day I went back and bought another one. This one had a border and corner punch which I thought was amazing. The patterns look amazing on paper and the corner punch is super useful. It has alignments (pictured above) so that you won't overlap and they work amazingly. They also fold up nicely as you can see below.

The corner punch (pictured below) has little corners to align the paper with so that you get a perfect corner. These punches are so amazing!

I made a little name card for myself out of it and you can see the patterns come out really well. The punch works better on thicker paper, but it does work on regular copy paper like I used for the white. If you use copy paper, you might have to pull out some pieces, since they don't punch out as easily. 

The only downfall about this punch is that it can make a big mess, especially if you punch a lot of paper. If you get a design with bigger holes, then you might not have to worry as much, but the best patterns are intricate ones. 

I know I'm definitely going to use this punch a lot. It's super cool, and you can use it for tons of stuff. It's great for making borders on invitation, thank you notes, school projects, and of course, for scrap booking. This punch is definitely worth it and I am going to use it a lot!

Happy Punching!
