                        Stopped by Wat Lao Saysettha to see the final menu for the weekend's New Year food fair. Here's the colorful graphic on the FB page,
                        https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fb...

                        I've uploaded the more complete menu that shows what will be available on Saturday or Sunday. In addition, there will be soop nor mai (Bamboo salad, I had a sample taste today), mango and sticky rice, larb gai (made with heritage chicken) and possibly other dishes donated by individuals.

                        Volunteers were busy making noodles, stringing marinated chicken wings onto skewer to be grilled tomorrow, and starting the soup stocks to simmer overnight. I bought my Lao sausage today (5 links for $10) and pineapple-basil seed rolls.

                        For Sunday's chowdown, we'll meet at 11am to share some items from the food sale. Then there's a community lunch (free) and offering. I was told the procession and performances will start after 12:30pm. You'll need cash for food purchases and checks/cash to make donations.
