Some of Thailand’s most unusual foods.

Carol Taylor shares some of the exotic and I have to be honest (unlikely to be eaten by Sally) foods in her adopted home in Thailand. If you like your frogs crispy then this is for you.. oh and did I mention the insects in batter? Anyway this post will serve to promote a new series starting tomorrow..

Retired? No one told me!

I got to thinking…….Ha Ha….Yes, you are right every last one of you, when I do that it’s dangerous!

About Smorgasbord - Variety is the Spice of Life.

My name is Sally Cronin and I am doing what I love.. Writing. Books, short stories, Haiku and blog posts. My previous jobs are only relevant in as much as they have gifted me with a wonderful filing cabinet of memories and experiences which are very useful when putting pen to paper. I move between non-fiction health books and posts and fairy stories, romance and humour. I love variety which is why I called my blog Smorgasbord Invitation and you will find a wide range of subjects. You can find the whole story here. Find out more at

  2. One of my dear friends here in France is a young woman from Thailand. She has been operating a food truck since the beginning of the year. No frogs though. 😉 I have visited Thailand, albeit briefly on the way to Vietnam and didn’t see any insects on the menu. 🙂 However, in Vietnam there was a sausage patty made from fish that was very popular. 🙂
