It’s small town Americana at its best! Parades, fun-runs, friends gathered in the park at dusk; shucking corn for the free town feed in the park ~ This is all part of festivities of Air Force Appreciation Day(s) here in Mountain Home, Idaho.
We are blessed to be part of an organization that is appreciated ~ even if only for a weekend… if only for a day; sometimes its enough.
The following recipe comes from an Air Force Spouse, Ratana, originally from Thailand; she graciously shares her recipes ~
