My big sister Janet has always been like a mom to me (even thought she LOOKS younger than me), so when “Mother’s Day” rolls around, I make sure we do something special together, usually a family lunch out.
This year, only two of her kids (the twins, 13) were available during the day. Cody (20) was away training at L.A. Firefighter Explorers, and Camron (22) was working.
Thankfully, Janet’s husband Paul had the day off from the fire-station, so I made a reservation for a 1pm lunch.
Lucky Elephant Thai Restaurant is one of Janet’s favorites, located just five minutes from her home in San Dimas. She told me how much she loves the decor and food, but doesn’t get to go very often. The simple fact is, the Thai cuisine is a bit too “authentic” for most of the family.
Kindal and her big brother Cody are the most adventurous eaters, and I can usually get them to try anything. But Chace, Camron and their dad Paul are a little more reserved, apt to order an identifiable beef or chicken entree, instead of some extremely ethnic sounding dish.
Well, “Aunt Jo is treating on Mother’s Day… so bring on the Hormok Kanom Krok!”
The lovely interior. Such a pleasant surprise walking in from the mini-mall parking lot!
